BITTER ROOT #10
Writer: Chuck Brown and David F. Walker
Artist: Sanford Greene
Publisher: Image Comics Inc.
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: “RAGE & REDEMPTION,” Part Five
Adro is on the cusp of destroying the world as we know it. In order to stop him, a member of the family may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

INGRID: We’re coming up on the final chapter of an arc, and I cannot wait! This book is so well-written and so intense, and the artwork fully lives up to it. It is no wonder this is an Eisner Award winner; to read this one is to realize, “Wow! Look at what comics can do!”

 

BLACK WIDOW #1
Writer: Kelly Thompson
Artist: Elena Casagrande
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Best-selling, Eisner-nominated writer Kelly Thompson (CAPTAIN MARVEL, STAR) and rising star artist Elena Casagrande (Catwoman) launch a new BLACK WIDOW series that changes everything! Natasha Romanoff has been a spy almost as long as she’s been alive. And she’s never stopped running, whether she was working for the good guys…or the bad. But Natasha’s world is about to be upended. Beyond San Francisco’s Golden Gate lies a mystery that only the Marvel Universe’s greatest spy can solve. Don’t miss the heartbreaking thrill ride of 2020!

CHRISTOPHER: I wasn’t on board until I saw the teaser trailer and read the solicitations. This book promises to introduce an arch nemesis to Black Widow and will be heartbreaking! I hope we really do get something heart-wrenching that brings more attachment to this superspy.

DIE #13
Writer: Kieron Gillen
Artist: Stephanie Hans
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: “THE GREAT GAME,” Part Three “War isn’t a game” seems obvious. Let one of DIE’s most aggressive masters explain:
i) why that isn’t true
ii) that war being a game only makes it worse.

CHRISTOPHER: Oh man, I have been waiting and waiting for this issue to come out. I want to see if Ash can accomplish what he is trying to do! Oh man, it is certain to be a crazy ride nonetheless.

 

INKBLOT #1
Writer: Emma Kubert and Rusty Gladd
Artist: Emma Kubert and Rusty Gladd
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: SERIES PREMIERE! Third-generation comic artist EMMA KUBERT partners with up-and-coming creator RUSTY GLADD to deliver a high-fantasy epic! This new ONGOING SERIES follows a powerful sorceress attempting to correct her greatest mistake-the creation of a magical cat that can travel through time, space, and reality. The cat threatens to unravel the fabric of the universe, doesn’t care, and just won’t listen!

CHRISTOPHER: A cat who can travel through time? What is there not to love! I always want a good fantasy story and this has a good vibe to it.

INGRID: A fantasy world and a family history of legendary heroics – these are the backdrop to Inkblot. A powerful sorceress, one who is more at home among books than out in the world, accidentally creates a magical cat. Take the normal shenanigans a cat can get into and cross them with the power to travel through time and space, and this sounds like a recipe for something really fun.

ROBOT OVERLORD: When you look down, all you see is dirt, so keep looking up.
