Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: Tony Stark is back! But is this the REAL Tony? How is that possible?! Where did that all-new armor come from?! WHAT’S GOING ON? There’s no time to explain, human. Just know this: It’s STARK VS. STARK ROUND 2, as Tony takes on Arno… in SPACE!

MATTHEW: I had forgotten this was still going on, but the 2020 crossover has been good stuff and I want to see how it all comes together for the (presumable) big finish.

 

 

Legion of Super-Heroes #7LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #7
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Wade Von Grawbadger, Stephen Byrne, Ryan Sook

SOLICITATION: Jonathan Kent, intergalactic fugitive! The United Planets is less than thrilled with the decision to bring Superboy a thousand years into the future to protect the past.

And as if that weren’t enough, new Legionnaire drama unfolds as Saturn Girl and Cosmic Boy throw down over who should take on the Legion’s leadership! Plus, Brainiac 5 will reveal a secret that will make one Legionnaire quit the team—and we ask the burning question: Who is the strongest Legionnaire? Find out in the only book telling you the future of the 
DC Universe every month!

MATTHEW: So, the first arc is done and it was… okay, I guess? There have been the usual Bendis pacing/balance problems, but I’m still interested in this new status quo and a couple of the new guys. Some would say that I’m a fool, but I’m just a Legion fan.

STEPHEN: It’s election time! Will there be a peaceful transfer of power, or will the entire team crumble? A good read, but man, are the panels packed.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #52
Writer: Ryan Parrott
Artist: Daniele Di Nicuolo
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: As tensions rise between the OMEGA RANGERS and the MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS over the return of , Kimberly takes it upon herself to interrogate their new prisoner. Meanwhile, a team of Rangers on a crucial intergalactic mission come face to face with the herald of a new threat heading straight for Earth!

MATTHEW: This story did NOT go where I expected, but I’m enjoying whatever the hell is going on. It’s glorious chaos, and I’m here for it.

MIRKA ANDOLFO’S MERCY #4
Writer: Mirka Andolfo
Artist: Mirka Andolfo
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Just when Goodwill needs her most, Lady Hellaine is on the verge of collapse! Will unexpected help from an unlikely ally be enough to turn the tide? Place your bets: it’s time to unveil the identity of the infamous Woodsburgh Devil, and if you thought the end of the previous issue was shocking, well—think again! You’re in for a hell of a ride, fellas.

INGRID: If you like your cosmic alien horror with some truly gorgeous art, this is a book to read. The plot is intricate and mysterious with threads that twine back on themselves so they are tantalizingly elusive. It’s a dark, evocative book that keeps you guessing.

SPIDER-MAN NOIR #2
Writer: Margaret Stohl
Artist: Juan E Ferreyra
Publisher: Marvel
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: DATELINE 1933! After months of fruitless efforts, the Nazis have discovered an ancient evil in one of their dig sites on the other side of the world. After a friend of a friend is murdered, SCRAPPY YOUNG REPORTER and rookie gumshoe PETER PARKER finds himself torn from his borough and thrust into the action! Unsure of who he can trust, our hero quickly finds himself on A GLOBE-TROTTING ADVENTURE, encountering friend and foe alike – some of whom may even bear a passing resemblances to familiar faces from the Marvel Universe!

INGRID: This is a wonderful take on a 1930’s Spider-Man as detective, about to go on a globe-trotting adventure. The dialogue is hard-boiled and pithy and the action two-fisted. Plus, there are nods to present-day Spider-Man and his cast of associates sprinkled throughout. Who knows, he may even get to punch a Nazi or two.

STEPHEN: Spider-Man punching Nazis? Sign me up!
