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.

THE ADDAMS FAMILY
Writer: Zoe Quinn
Artist: Philip Murphy
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: While searching the Addams library for the creepiest grimoire, Wednesday Addams discovers a mysterious tome that promises true empowerment to the young woman who wields it. Wednesday decides to complete the dark rituals hidden within this Eleventeen magazine—and achieve ultimate power.

INGRID: I have been a fan of the Addams family for a very long time, across a lot of different media. I am always intrigued when they make an appearance. Their comedy and horror hit a sweet spot for me, and that slightly twisted take gives a delightful space to comment on our own world.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS BALDUR’S GATE 100-PAGER
Writer: Jim Zub
Artist: Max Dunbar
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $5.99
SOLICITATION: Join Minsc, Delina, Krydle, Shandie, and Boo the Miniature Giant Space Hamster on their original adventures in this oversized, value-priced, introductory issue! Dungeons & Dragons is more popular than ever-now is the perfect time to join the fun, and this is the perfect place to start!

CHRISTOPHER: I have enjoyed the mythos of this series for a long time and with a giant version of my favorite hamster on the front; I’m sold.

GREEN LANTERN: BLACKSTARS #1
Writer: Grant Morrison
Artist: Xermanico
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: What has Hal Jordan done? Following the catastrophic events of The Green Lantern #12, no Green Lanterns can be found patrolling their space sectors…and not a single power ring lights the darkness. Across the universe, once-familiar faces now wear a different uniform and enforce a new type of galactic law. The Green Lantern Corps is dead-long live the Blackstars! Who are they? What are they? Answers will be revealed as the unstoppable Blackstars set their sights on the demons of Ysmault, Mongul…and a tiny, backwater planet called Earth. A dangerous new chapter of the Green Lantern mythology starts now!

JONATHAN: Grant Morrison’s run on The Green Lantern felt like it was finally hitting a stride towards the end, I’m curious to see if this will keep up that pace, or derail things.

HEIST, OR HOW TO STEAL A PLANET #1
Writer: Paul Tobin
Artist: Arjuna Susini
Publisher: Vault Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Welcome to planet Heist! It’s the cutthroat capital of the entire Nehring System, home to billions of the worst men and women in the galaxy. The Pan-Galactic government has no idea what to do with the planet, but conman Glane Breld and his band of thieves know exactly what to do with Heist—they’re going to steal it. It’s Ocean’s Eleven in space, brought to you by writer Paul Tobin (Colder and Bandette) and Arjuna Susini (The Replacer)—the only minds crazy enough to steal an entire world.

INGRID: You had me at “Heist,” but this sounds like the biggest heist anyone has ever tried to pull off. A conman and his gang out to steal a planet is an idea that is big and bold, and I am so excited to read this one!

JONATHAN: I mean, it’s right there in the solicitation: Ocean’s Eleven in space. That’s nearly a perfect combination of words to catch my attention.

X-FORCE #1
Writer: Ben Percy
Artist: Joshua Cassara
Publisher: Marvel
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: THE HIGH PRICE OF A NEW DAWN!
X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world-one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We’re not there…yet.

CHRISTOPHER: I have enjoyed what they have been doing with the new X-men content and I’m sure this book will be no different.
