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.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: INFERNAL TIDES
Writer: Jim Zub
Artist: Max Dunbar
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: A new Dungeons & Dragons adventure begins here!

Minsc and his friends are caught in the middle of devil-tainted corruption that has taken hold of Baldur’s Gate. Unravelling the secret of its source will take our heroes to unexpected places and threaten the sanctity of their very souls. Even if they survive this perilous journey, there will be Hell to pay!

Infernal Tides continues the D&D comic odyssey written by Jim Zub (D&D: Evil at Baldur’s Gate, D&D: Shadows of the Vampire, Avengers) with artwork by Max Dunbar (Avengers, D&D: Legends of Baldur’s Gate)!

CHRISTOPHER: Gosh, I’m such a nerd. I saw this title and remembered the characters from my childhood and immediately wanted to read it.

ETHER: THE DISAPPEARANCE OF VIOLET BELL #4
Writer: Matt Kindt
Artist: David Rubin
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics LLC
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Hot on the trail of kidnapped faerie Violet Bell, the interdimensional detective Boone Dias finally corners the assassin that has been out for his blood and finds that the mystery runs deeper than Violet’s disappearance.

INGRID: Always inventive, frequently unexpected, Boone Dias’ adventures in Ether are not your typical fantasy-world tales. The connections are odd in much the same way dreams are, and the art is endlessly fascinating. And the mystery at the core is intriguing.

SERA AND THE ROYAL STARS
Writer; Jon Tusei
Artist: Audrey Mok
Publisher: Vault Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Alone and hunted by daeva, Sera comes face-to-face with Eltanin, the mastermind behind the suffering that has befallen Parsa. Will Sera defeat her greatest foe and return the Royal Stars to the heavens or will this be the end?

CHRISTOPHER: I love modern tellings of mythology and therefore this comic appeals to me. The protagonist is strong willed, strong, and she is always trying to do the right thing.

 

 

STEEPLE #4
Writer: John Allison
Artist: John Allison
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics LLC
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: A supernatural tale of friendship, the devil, and moral gray areas. The start of autumn brings more than changing leaves: it also brings Witchfest, where the coastal parish Tredregyn is beset by a horde of festive witches celebrating the equinox—and local curate Billie finds herself accidentally volunteering!

INGRID: Steeple is such a fun book. Billie, the main character and curate in the Anglican church, is relentlessly friendly and positive, making connections with the local Satanists and monsters while ever keeping true to herself.

SUPERMAN #18
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Joe Prado
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: With Superman’s family scattered across the galaxy, our hero must confront some of his greatest concerns about himself and his place in the galaxy. Legendary artist Ivan Reis joins writer Brian Michael Bendis as they introduce the biggest change in the Man of Steel’s life ever!

STEPHEN: This is a fantastic book that deserves to be in your collection. Bendis handles each reveal in a different way reflecting each character’s inner person. Touching, funny, and well done, Superman #18 is my pick of the week.

TRIAGE #4 (OF 5)
Writer: Phillip Sevy
Artist: Phillip Sevy
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Stranded on another world, beaten and broken on every front, the survivors must band together to search for a ray of hope. But when their only chance at survival comes from the most dangerous place in this reality, will they be able to risk everything to escape the coming onslaught?

Written and illustrated by revered comics veteran Phillip Sevy! (The Freeze, The House, Tomb Raider).

CHRISTOPHER: I was uncertain about the story when it first came out. Now I’m 100% on board with the characters, the tension, and the danger that is always around the corner.

ROBOT OVERLORD: Well? What are you waiting for? Get out there and READ MORE COMICS!
