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 AND DRAGONS: AT THE SPINE OF THE WORLD #1
Writer: AJ Mendez and Aimee Garcia
Artist: Martin Coccolo
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: A never-ending winter’s night is slowly driving an isolated town in the depths of Icewind Dale to the brink of insanity. To save them all, a perilous journey awaits a band of adventurers as they battle a furious icy god and uncover the plot of an ancient primordial evil!

Based on the massively popular game and featuring a cast of brand-new characters written by New York Times bestselling author AJ Mendez plus writer and actor Aimee Garcia!

CHRISTOPHER: Icewind Dale is one of those locations in the Forgotten Realms that excite me. Something about the cold tundra/artic is a great setting for fantasy adventure. I am cautiously optimistic about this story and its ties to the current adventure module that was just published.

KICK-ASS VS HIT-GIRL #1
Writer: Steve Niles
Artist: Marcelo Frusin
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: It’s KICK-ASS versus HIT-GIRL. Old allies become enemies when Mindy screeches into Albuquerque to kill the imposter who’s been running gangs in New Mexico. And as Hit-Girl sets out to avenge Dave and stop Kick-Ass’ criminal operations for good, Patience fights to survive as the target of the best assassin in the biz-and questions whether she could ever kill a child to save her own life.

MATTHEW: I’m worried that this will be a train wreck, but I kind of want to see how it all plays out.

Magnificent Ms. Marvel #16THE MAGNIFICENT MS. MARVEL #16
Writer: Saladin Ahmed
Artist: Minkyu Jung
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: AMULET RETURNS – just in time for C.R.A.D.L.E. and Dum Dum Dugan to crack down on the teen heroes of Jersey City! An arcane horror threatens everything Amulet and Ms. Marvel hold dear – but can they do anything to stop it when they could be arrested at any moment?

INGRID: Ms. Marvel’s life is complicated, to say the least. Not only is she balancing her hero life with her home life, but she and her fellow teen heroes are being tracked by C.R.A.D.L.E.! Kamala is a delightful young hero who is not afraid to jump in and do what’s right despite the consequences.

POWER RANGERS #1
Writer: Ryan Parrott
Artist: Francesoc Mortarino
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: * Two New Series, Two New Teams – The UNLIMITED POWER Era Begins HERE – And Only Lord Drakkon, Their Greatest Enemy, Can Save Them! Superstar writer Ryan Parrott (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and fan favorite artist Francesco Mortarino (Go Go Power Rangers) reveal a new cosmic threat that only the original Power Rangers, now known as the Omega Rangers – Jason, Trini and Zack – can hope to defeat! But their secret weapon is… the villainous Lord Drakkon?!

Zordon forbids the Omega Rangers from contacting Drakkon, so if they want to save the universe then they’ll have to go rogue – and go up against their Mighty Morphin allies. The next big Power Rangers epic begins here, perfect for longtime fans and new readers alike.

MATTHEW: You had me at “New Green Ranger.”

PUNCHLINE SPECIAL #1
Writer: James Tynion IV, Sam Johns
Artist: Mirka Andolfo
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: As she faces the consequences for her role in “The Joker War,” the story of how Alexis Kaye became Punchline will take Leslie Thompkins, Harper Row, and Cullen Row on a harrowing journey that reveals a fringe teenager’s radicalization to the ideology of a madman.

MATTHEW: I’m almost CERTAIN that this one will be a train wreck, but it’s interesting to see the feedback loop of “IMPORTANT NEW CHARACTER SELLS WELL WHICH MEANS THEY’RE IMPORTANT” is still alive and well in comics.

TERMINAL PUNKS #1
Writer: Matthew Erman
Artist: Shelby Criswell
Publisher: Mad Cave Studios
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Four greasy gutter punk teens are en route to their big show in the Big Apple, but when things go monstrously wrong and mutant animals are unleashed in the airport, our heroes must put on their combat boots, fly their Black Flag, and survive a viral genetic mutant nightmare. Terminal Punks is a blaring love letter to the music and attitude of rebellion!

INGRID: Punk is not necessarily my thing, but when it’s in the context of music, rebellion, and monstrous mutant animals in NYC, it piques my interest. The glorious thing about comics is there is always something for everyone, and this sounds lively and full of attitude.


ROBOT OVERLORD: If you feel you are right, stand firmly by your convictions.
