RODRIGO: Adventure time is over after its 10th season… OR IS IT!? I mean, no, this comic book continues those stories… Honestly, I’m curious to see where this book goes, since they no longer have to conform to the events of the ongoing show.

How, you might ask, did a couple of rebels with almost no cash manage to make a library of a THOUSAND films? You’ll have to pick up this incredible collection to find out, featuring never-before-seen film stills, rare posters, candid interviews, and buckets and buckets and BUCKETS of fake blood…

RODRIGO: I’m not going to lie, this book may be too much Troma for me. Still, I’m in for behind the scenes and historical perspectives on the most legendary bad movie studio.

Whatever it is, it’s big enough to reunite Jim Gordon and former district attorney Harvey Dent, and that meeting alone is worth the cover price. Batman’s newest partner…Two-Face?

Now, two years into their voyage, Security Director Deva Karrell investigates the station’s first murder—and the otherworldly motives behind it.

RODRIGO: You gotta admit, starting your crime drama with “The universe ended” is a hell of a setup. I’m curious to see how this all shakes down.

INGRID: A Victorian mystery story in the vein of Sherlock Holmes, but with a Steampunk vibe, supernatural terrors, and an intelligent female assistant absolutely calls out to me. Let me brew up some tea and get ready to settle in by the fireplace with this one!

Project Superpowers #3PROJECT SUPERPOWERS #3
Writer: Rob Williams
Artist: Sergio Davila
Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Flight is dead. The invasion has begun, a Project Superpowers team member has been killed and another is missing. Meanwhile, Amani gets a visitor in hospital. But is it the one she wants? If it’s darkest before the dawn, this is midnight for the world. And Pandora wants his box. Can anyone stand in his way?

INGRID: Project Superpowers has really grabbed my attention. The art is stunning, and I love the character design. We’ve just met the main villain and he is a heck of a big bad guy. Drama, character development, interesting little plot mysteries – this book has it all.

ROBOT OVERLORD: Today is the day! Today you get to discover that one comic that you love! Enjoy your quest!
