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.

CANTO AND THE CLOCKWORK FARIES
Writer: David Booher
Artist: Drew Zucker
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED, FAN FAVORITE CANTO RETURNS! David M. Booher, Drew Zucker, Vittorio Astone, and Deron Bennett return to Canto’s world, following the brave clockwork hero as he leads his people out from their home in Arcana to find somewhere—and something—new! When Canto encounters a group of captured fairies, it’s up to him to liberate them, but can he do it without being captured himself? Find out in this one-shot bridging the hit mini-series and the second arc, coming in Summer 2020.

CHRISTOPHER: I loved this first arc. While the main character looks a little simple; the story is rich, deep, and complex. I’m looking forward to reading this interlude into the next major arc.

INGRID: If you’re curious about Canto, this one-shot is a perfect introduction to the characters that will also give you a taste of his world. Canto is a hero down to his clockwork heart, and the art is terrifically imaginative. If you’re familiar with Canto, this is a nice little bite to tide you over until the second arc hits.

CHU #1
Writer: John Layman
Artist: Dan Boultwood
Publisher: Image Comics, Inc.
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: “THE FIRST COURSE,” Part One
TONY CHU is a cibopath, able to get psychic impressions from what he eats. SAFFRON CHU is a cibopars, able to learn secrets from who she eats with. Tony is a cop. Saffron is a criminal. They are brother and sister, and they are on a collision course. Spinning out of the multiple Eisner Award-winning and New York Times bestselling series CHEW comes CHU, a felonious new food noir about cops, crooks, cooks, and clairvoyants.

INGRID: It’s a Chu vs. Chu criminal adventure tale! Chu may be a bit of an acquired taste, if you will. There is some inherent grossness, but the concept of eating giving Saffron and her brother special powers is fascinating it’s well worth the read. Top the cat and mouse game with family complications, and I think this will be an entertaining read.

DIE #12
Writer: Kieron Gillen
Artist: Stephanie Hans
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: “THE GREAT GAME,” Part Two-Designer Sid Meier described games as a series of interesting decisions. “May you live in interesting times” is a curse. Both things are true, and both are true here.

CHRISTOPHER: Die has been a rollercoaster of emotions and approaches difficult subjects with an impressive finesse. Gaming is an escape from reality but this series asks the question “What if the game is reality?” How do the protagonist handle their second lives in the game when the consequences seem so real?

ROBOT OVERLORD: Find a peaceful place where you can make plans for the future.
