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.

ADVENTURES OF THE SUPER SONS #9
Writer: Peter J. Tomasi
Artist: Scott Godlewski
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Takron-Galtos, the prison planet, may be behind them-but in order to beat the Gang and get home, the boys must saddle up to survive a wild wild world of the west! An unlikely guide on this lawless planet might just help Superboy and Robin survive…but what in the west world is Jonah Hex doing out here in space?! Hold on to your hats, this one’s going to be a bucking good time!

STEPHEN: I am very surprised at how good this series is. I mean, it features Damian Wayne as one of the main characters. As we round the corner into the final stretch, I continue to enjoy this series, and I think you will, too.

ATOMIC ROBO: DAWN OF A NEW ERA #4
Writer: Brian Clevinger
Artist: Scott Wegener
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Atomic Robo opened Tesladyne Institute’s doors to the next generation of Action Scientists. Everything was going pretty smoothly until Lang discovered Robo’s secret robot son who is kinda (sorta) a new iteration of the old automatic intelligence that tried to cook the Earth in nuclear fire some years back. No way things are falling apart, right?

INGRID: Atomic Robo is my hero. This arc gives us new interns and a fresh start, but brings back several old favorites with just the perfect mix of action and craziness. What’s not to love?

STEPHEN: Atomic Robo. There is nothing else you need to know about this book/series. It continues to be one of the best, most consistent, entertaining series I have ever read.

BRONZE AGE BOOGIE #1
Writer: Stuart Moore, Tyrone Finch
Artist: Alain Mauricet
Publisher: Ahoy Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: AHOY Wave Two begins! What do you get when you combine all the best-loved comics genres of the 1970s: apes, monsters, Kung Fu, sword-and-sorcery, and cosmic adventure? You get Bronze Age Boogie, an intense, character-based action-fest with plenty of style! In this collector’s item first issue, young barbarian princess Brita Constantina finds herself battling a Martian invasion in both 1975 AD and BC! Back-feature: Meet Major Ursa, the first bear in space. But will he be a hero or a villain? Plus the usual assortment of AHOY extra text stories!

STEPHEN: I have no idea what this book is about, but the solicitation and the crazy cover image has me rushing out to grab this one right now. Well, not right now, because I have to publish this article, find a comic shop in my area, and wait for it to open.

CONAN THE BARBARIAN #5
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Mahmud A. Asrar
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: SET SAIL ON A SHIP OF THE DEAD!
• CONAN leaves the land for the life of a pirate!
• How did he survive disaster during the most ominous voyage of his life on a ship surrounded by dead men?
• And the CRIMSON WITCH’s dark plans for KING CONAN become grimly clear!
• PLUS: The fifth chapter in the ALL-NEW Conan novella “BLACK STARLIGHT,” begun in issue #1 of CONAN THE BARBARIAN!
Parental Advisory

STEPHEN: Oooooo… Parental Advisory… you know this means the 13 year olds will be all over this book. Also, adults. I didn’t think I would like the adventures of Conan at Marvel, but so far, it has been really good.

YOUNG JUSTICE #4
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Patrick Gleason & John Timms
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: This all-new, in-continuity Wonder Comics sensation explodes as all the secrets of these heroes—Robin, Superboy, Wonder Girl, Jinny Hex, Teen Lantern, Amethyst and Impulse—are revealed! Young Justice forms once again—just in time to battle the great Dark Opal and stop his plans for an invasion of Earth that could destroy humanity. It’s a big, bold new chapter into the future of the DC Universe

INGRID: This is such a fun story, and I like that it’s taking place in Gemworld. These young heroes are engaging, and there’s a just such a nice mix of heroics and humor.
