IT’S NEW COMIC BOOK DAY! #NCBD

The best day of the week just got a lot better with a new round of awesome comics arriving in stores this week. Staff members at Major Spoilers are here to help you with your comic book selection this week, with their roundup of comics they recommend.

BATMAN #39
Writer: Tom King
Artist: Joelle Jones
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $2.99
SOLICITATION: SUPERFRIENDS part three! Batman and Wonder Woman fight together in an epic battle that will define and then redefine their relationship. What bonds these two pillars of the DCU together? What tears them apart? Find out as Batman continues on his quest for the one thing he’s never had, happiness.

WAYNE: Mr. King is hitting his stride with this comic, so it’s once again a must-read! Highly recommended!

BATMAN TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #3 (OF 12)
Writer: James Tynion IV
Artist: Freddie Williams II
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Batman and the Turtles go on the offensive in the belief that they can take Bane down while he’s weakened, due to a lack of Venom on the Turtles’ world. But that’s not true anymore! The Turtles’ for Baxter Stockman has found a way to reproduce the deadly substance that feeds Bane-which means the Dark Knight and the Heroes on a Half-Shell are in for the fight of their lives.

WAYNE: Mr. Tynion writes many of the best comics out today, so this one is a total no-brainer! Don’t miss it!

CHAMPIONS #16
Writer: Mark Waid
Artist: Humberto Ramos
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: CHAMPION FOR A DAY Part 1. Following their staggering loss in their adventure with the Avengers, the Champions decide to double down on their mission to make the world a better place – but they know now they can’t do it alone! That’s right – it’s time for a membership drive!

MATTHEW: A callback to one of the greatest 70s Marvel moments and more Red Locust? I’m 100% in.

DAMAGE #1
Writer: Robert Venditti
Artist: Tony S. Daniel, Danny Miki
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $2.99
SOLICITATION: Tasked as the government’s own living, breathing, ticking time bomb, Ethan retains no control when the monster takes over. Cheaper than a nuclear warhead and twice as effective, Ethan fights to rein in the damage he unleashes when the beast inside him springs free for one hour a day. With everyone around him in danger, Ethan struggles to contain the DAMAGE he inflicts on the DC Universe.

MATTHEW: This looks like “DC does The Hulk” and I want to know exactly what is going on here. It can’t be that simple, and the visuals look interesting…

WAYNE: I’m fascinated by this new take on a long-time DC character. Venditti is a strong writer, and the art is dynamic, so I’m going to dive in on this one!

ICE CREAM MAN #1
Writer: W. Maxwell Prince
Artist: Martin Morazzo
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Chocolate, vanilla, existential horror, drug addiction, musical fantasy…there’s a flavor for everyone’s misery.ICE CREAM MAN is a genre-defying comic book series featuring disparate “one-shot” tales of sorrow, wonder, and redemption. Each installment features its own cast of strange characters, dealing with their own special sundae of suffering. And on the periphery of all of them, like the twinkly music of his colorful truck, is the Ice Cream Man-a weaver of stories, a purveyor of sweet treats. Friend. Foe. God. Demon. The man who, with a snap of his fingers-lickety split!-can change the course of your life forever.

MATTHEW: I don’t know what this is, but the previews I’ve seen mark it as something I want more of. It reminds me of how I felt about classic Vertigo when that began back in the 80s…
