ARCHIE #30
Script: Mark Waid, Ian Flynn
Art: Audrey Mok, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Jack Morelli
Publisher: Archie Comics
Cover Price: $3.99 U.S.
SOLICITATION: It’s the run-up to the most important event in the gang’s lives—the spring dance! Who’s going with whom? Who’s NOT going with whom? And how will Archie end up tanking the whole night?

STEPHEN: Archie is the hidden gem that more people should be reading. This issue features the first true connection between Midge and Moose, and it is great! I just hope the cliffhanger ending doesn’t spell doom for any of our beloved characters!

BITCOIN COMIC HANDBOOK
Writer: Josh Blaylock
Artist: Josh Blaylock
Publisher: Devils Due
Cover Price: $5.99
SOLICITATION: The Bitcoin Comic is a guide to understanding the world’s newest super tech and the profound changes it may make in the near future. Covering topics from a simple explanation as to what the heck Bitcoin is, how it works and where to buy it, all the way to a fun, almost sci-fi look at where we may be headed with it. Oh yeah, and will it make you a millionaire? That may depend on how you define your wealth.

RODRIGO: I was all ready to talk about bitcoin here, but now I’m just looking at that cover. I assume that B has 2 eyes and they’re closed, but it also kinda looks like it has two lippy mouths? It’s kinda freaking me out.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS EVIL AT BALDURS GATE #1
Writer: Jim Zub
Artist: Dean Kotz
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Minsc the Mighty—Evil Beware! The Baldur’s Gate heroes return to the city at last, but their time adventuring in Ravenloft and the frozen northern reaches of the Realms has changed them. Each of them must face great trials ahead before they’ll be ready to embrace their destiny.

A new hero of the people roams the streets of Baldur’s Gate, and Minsc feels left behind despite his own legend. Can he reclaim his place as the city’s Beloved Ranger? Whatever happens, evil is going to get its butt kicked most thoroughly!

STEPHEN: I think I’m ready for this. Yeah, I’m definitely ready for the evil at Baldur’s Gate. THere’s something fun about the D&D comics, and IDW with Jim Zub telling the story means something good is waiting.

J. SCOT CAMPBELL’S DANGER GIRL 20th ANNIVERSARY!
Writer: J. Scott Campbell, Andy Hartnell

Scott Campbell’s pencils from the preview story and first issue—all scanned from the artist’s personal archives—for the FIRST TIME. A true rarity if there ever was one! Also in this prestige collection, the preview and issue #1 stories inked and colored, offering fans a chance to peruse both versions! If you love J. Scott Campbell’s art—and who doesn’t?—you’ll be able to see Danger Girl like never before — in its purest form!

Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: A young woman journeys deeper into the mysterious Labyrinth and faces trials the likes of which she could never have imagined. Still, she is determined that nothing will stop her from saving her son!

RODRIGO: Labyrinth: Coronation has been everything I didn’t know I wanted out of a Labyrinth prequel. Which is a roundabout way of saying that it’s pretty good.

MIGHTY MORPHIN’ POWER RANGERS 2018 ANNUAL #1

Artist: Patrick Mulholland, Marcus To, Hyeonjin Kim, Simone Di Meo

PERVERT OGN
Writer: Michelle Perez
Artist: Remy Boydell
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $17.99
SOLICITATION: A surprisingly honest and touching account of a trans girl surviving through sex work in Seattle. With excerpts published in the Eisner-nominated anthology ISLAND, the full-color volume, drawn and painted by REMY BOYDELL, is an unflinching debut graphic novel. Written by MICHELLE PEREZ.

MATTHEW: This seems really fascinating, and I miss the days where a done-in-one graphic novel seemed like a regular occurrence and a going concern. I’m in for sure…

THE PRISONER #1
Writer: Peter Milligan
Artist: Colin Lorimer
Publisher: Titan Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the first US transmission, this new series transports readers back to the mysterious village where everyone is a number!

MATTHEW: Yes. Just… yes.
I’m always in on anything tied to, reviving or referencing The Prisoner, and this one looks amazing (especially the Kirby and Allred variant covers.)

STEPHEN: Sure, why not?
