Artist: Ryan Ottley
Publisher: Marvel

SOLICITATION: “HUNTED” now runs through AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #23!
• The fallout from “HUNTED” is felt and much of Peter’s life is called into question.
• What is left of Spider-Man after living through the harrowing hunt?!

STEPHEN: I love Spider-Man. Sometimes the stories work, and sometimes they run too long, but I’m always in to whatever Marvel puts out under The Amazing Spider-Man title.

BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #2
Writer: Bryan Hill
Artist: Dexter Soy
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Sofia Barrera is on the run from an enforcer for the Ark, the program that gave her powers-but in the process, she’s fallen into the hands of the mystery man called Kaliber! He claims he wants to protect her…but who’s paying his bill? And is Katana already questioning Black Lightning’s leadership on their very first mission? Or is she just pushing him in a direction he’s not willing to go?

STEPHEN: I kind of agree with Black Lightning creator on some of the negative bits about this series, but at the same time, I enjoyed the setup for the first issue, and want to see what the team can do with Batman lurking in the background.

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA LEGACY EDITION TP VOL 01
Writer: John Carpenter, Eric Powell
Artist: Brian Churilla
Publisher: BOOM! Studios

SOLICITATION: BOOM! Studios presents the the first of three Big Trouble in Little China Legacy Editions! Collecting the previously released Big Trouble in Little China comic for the first time under one cover in an all-new value priced format that no fan can afford to miss.

Jack Burton, a macho, truck-driving adventurer, finds a stowaway demon hiding on his rig, The Pork Chop Express, but that soon becomes the least of his troubles.

Director John Carpenter returns with Eric Powell (The Goon) and artist Brian Churilla (Secret History Of D.B. Cooper) in the continuing adventures of Jack Burton, taking place mere moments after the ending to the cult-classic.

Collects Big Trouble in Little China #1-12

STEPHEN: This is a beautiful edition, and if you love Big Trouble in Little China and enjoyed the single issues when they were released, this huge trade will keep you occupied for many many hours.

GOGOR #2

Artist: Ken Garing
Publisher: Image Comics, Inc.
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: With Gogor now awakened, Armano must journey out into the world of Altara and piece together the purpose of his mysterious quest. Swamp monsters, hot air balloons, floating crystals, hidden histories, and a reptilian bounty hunter are also involved.

INGRID: I really liked the first issue of this book, and the art is truly fascinating. While the underlying story is in part a quest, Armano meets some very interesting and different characters, and the environmental themes really resonate with me.

JUGHEAD TIME POLICE #1
Writer: Sina Grace
Artist: Derek Charm
Publisher: Archie Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: BRAND NEW SERIES! When Jughead messes up his Riverdale Annual Bake-Off pie recipe so terribly, he is disqualified and banned from all future Bake-Offs!

STEPHEN: You had me at time travel.

 

 

SONATA #1
Writer: David Hine & Brian Haberlin
Artist: Brian Haberlin

Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: “THE FALL” In this all-new series from DAVID HINE (THE BULLETPROOF COFFIN), BRIAN HABERLIN (WITCHBLADE), and GEIRROD VAN DYKE (SPAWN, MEDIEVAL SPAWN/WITCHBLADE), two cultures clash on a planet they each believe is their Promised Land. The Rans are a peace-loving people, but the Tayans are a race of warriors who seek to colonize and control. The mysterious Sleeping Giants also call this place home, though no one knows if they’re monsters or the gods of legend. And amidst all this, a young woman named Sonata is willing to break all the rules to find her place in this world—and she’s not about to let sleeping gods lie.

INGRID: One of the truly great things about comics is that there are new and interesting books. I love science fiction, and this premise intrigues me a lot.
