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 II: THE HOLLOW MEN
Writer: David Booher
Artist: Drew Zucker
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Book 2 of all-ages fan favorite Canto begins! Once, a little tin slave with a clock for a heart broke all the rules-he found love, he was given a name, and he escaped his masters to go on an epic journey to save his love’s heart. He met strange allies and terrifying enemies and, ultimately, though his adventure didn’t turn out as planned, he returned to his people and led them to freedom.

That freedom is in jeopardy when Canto discovers his people’s clocks will stop unless they return to captivity. He and his friends Falco, Rikta, and Veratta embark on a new adventure to save the lives of all their people. Can they lift the curse before their time runs out?

CHRISTOPHER: The themes of the first arc were amazing! I’m excited to see what our little knight is going to do after the events of the last comic. Will he get his love’s heart? I hope so!

FANTASTIC FOUR: ANTITHESIS #1 (OF 4)
Writer: Mark Waid
Artist: Neal Adams
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: The first full-length Fantastic Four story ever illustrated by classic creator Neal Adams! An unstoppable meteor of unknown origin has just erupted from hyperspace–and unless the Fantastic Four can find a way to stop it from hitting Manhattan, millions will die!

CHRISTOPHER: This feels like a callback to some classic Fantastic Four storylines. It includes the Silver Surfer, Galacticus, and a new entity called the Antithesis. Should be a fun ride!

KILLADEPHIA #7
Writer: Rodney Barnes
Artist: Jason Shawn Alexander
Publisher: Image Comics, Inc.
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: “BURN BABY BURN,” Part One
The critically acclaimed, bestselling series returns to terrify! From the minds of RODNEY BARNES, the writer behind such hit shows as Marvel’s ​Runaways​ and STARZ’s ​American Gods,​ and JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER, the artist who redefined SPAWN for a whole new generation, comes a horror tale you CANNOT miss!

As Philadelphia struggles to recover from one of the most brutal bloodbaths in its history, Abigail Adams sets into motion a sinister plan over 200 years in the making. Will J.J. be able to stop her without putting those he cares about in danger? Or will her twisted games prove deadly for everyone he holds dear?

INGRID: The first arc of Killadelphia was stunning, and now it’s back and I am excited. This is a brilliant take on vampires, especially horrifying in their willingness to take all the time they need to set their plans in motion. A smart, relentless vampire is truly terrifying.

SPIDER-MAN NOIR #3 (of 5)
Writer: Margaret Stohl
Artist: Juan E. Ferreyra
Publisher: Marvel
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES! A murder investigation may have led Spider-Man a thousand miles from home, but DANGER is close behind! And as the specter of war looms in Europe, a dangerous operative shrouded in mystery has designs of his own, with ELECTRO leading the charge!

INGRID: Adventure indeed! Spider-Man Noir is an Indiana Jones style globe-trotting tale full of rapid-fire dialogue and femme fatales. He’s about to face off with a 1930’s style Electro which is just so cool. This is just such a fun take on so many characters, not to mention stylish as heck.

ROBOT OVERLORD: You are broad minded and socially active.
