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 WHITE KNIGHT #8
Writer: Sean Murphy
Artist: Sean Murphy
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: In the extra-sized finale of Sean Murphy’s top-selling miniseries, Jack Napier’s suspicious seduction of Gotham City comes to its twisted conclusion! With the city on the verge of becoming an icy tomb for the GTO, Batgirl makes a crucial assist and Gordon is forced to reevaluate his judgment of Batman to secure the greater good. As the true Joker’s return becomes imminent, Harley seeks vengeance and reckons with the bleak future that looms for her loved ones.

CHRIS: Every issue of this miniseries has been great and just when I think I have a grasp of where it’s going, it surprises me. While this is the last issue, so not the best place to start, but get all the previous issues. This one I think will go out with a bang.

STEPHEN: So many of you have been asking us to review this book month after month, and while there are some people who hate Batman, I get where Sean Murphy is going with this series and if you take it as a crazy over the top Elseworlds series, then you’ll enjoy this.

DOMINO #2
Writer: Gail Simone
Artist: David Baldeon
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Marvel’s #1 soldier of fortune’s luck has finally gone south… turning her life as a mercenary upside down! Plus: Who is Domino’s evil counterpart?

CHRIS: As someone unfamiliar with Domino, Gail Simone’s first issue was a fun introduction. I enjoyed the story and art so much that I’m no doubt in for the second. So far, this might be one of my favorite Marvel books right now.

MATTHEW: I was looking forward to this series, and issue #1 was even better than I had hoped. With the cliffhanger, this one has the potential to be the best of the week…

STEPHEN: Gail Simone’s first issue blew me away, and this feels like the start of another great run similar to what she did with Bird of Prey for DC all those years ago. Can’t wait to see what happens to Domino and crew this week!

JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #1
Writer: Scott Snyder, James TynionIV, Joshua Williamson
Artist: Frances Manapul
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: DARK NIGHTS: METAL left the DCU transformed in ways both terrifying and wondrous-and only the Justice League is strong enough to face the threats to come…or are they? Four giant beings comprised of the universe’s major energies-Mystery, Wonder, Wisdom and Entropy-who sustain their life force by devouring planets are on their way to destroy the planet of Colu. The only way to take down this unimaginable threat is for the superhero teams of Earth to forget everything they thought they knew and form new alliances. What secrets of the cosmos will Superman, Martian Manhunter and Team Mystery discover? Will Zatanna, Wonder Woman and Team Wonder awaken alien magic they cannot put back to sleep? What can Harley Quinn possibly have to teach the rest of Team Wisdom? And most importantly…why the heck is Beast Boy on Team Entropy with Lobo and Batman?

MATTHEW: I have no idea whether this is going to be any good, but if nothing else, it sure is ambitious.

VEMON #1
Writer: Donny Cates
Artist: Ryan Stegman
Publisher: Marvel
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: In the wake of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s collapse, an ancient and primordial evil has been awakened beneath the streets of New York, and with it, something equally evil has awakened in that most Wicked of Webslingers – VENOM! Still a Lethal Protector of the innocents in New York, this never-before-seen threat could force Venom to relinquish everything it holds dear – including Eddie Brock! Join two of the hottest creators in comics today, Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman, for a VENOM adventure a thousand years in the making!

CHRIS: Finally, Tom Hardy gets a new #1! Let’s get all our Venom jokes out now. Good? Ok then. I’m actually looking forward to this as Donny Cates has been doing a fantastic job on Babyteeth and I hear Dr. Strange Damnation is good too. With Ryan Stegman on art, I have a feeling this is going to be a good read.

YOU ARE DEADPOOL #2
Writer: Al Ewing
Artist: Paco Diaz
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: DID YOU EVER WANT TO BE DEADPOOL??? Now’s your chance! This weekly series is not JUST the most amazing comic book you’ve ever read…it’s also a role-playing adventure! YOU decide what choices Deadpool makes! YOU keep track of your scores issue by issue! YOU roll dice to combat various foes! Travel through Marvel history as Deadpool to meet Hulk in the swinging ’60s! To smell Man-Thing in the swampy ’70s! To be “seen” by Daredevil in the hard-boiled ’80s! And avoid the many BAD ENDINGS you could fall into…or suffer the consequences!

MATTHEW: The first issue of this was utterly amazing, and the most remarkable part was that the choose-your-own-adventure gimmick actually WORKED! Here’s hoping the whole series is as good as the debut…
