CHILDREN OF THE ATOM #1
Writer: Vita Ayala
Artist: Bernard Chang and R.B. Silva
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: WHEN DID THE X-MEN GET SIDEKICKS?!
Now! Don’t miss the debut of the greatest teenage super hero team of all time! They’ve learned from the best, now they’re ready to be put to the test! But who the heck are these kids, and where do they come from? Guest-starring the X-Men!

CHRISTOPHER: The X-Men are my favorite superhero team, and this new title catches my attention. But one of the heroes is called “Cylcops-Lass” which is an odd choice.

 

 

THE AUTUMNAL #5
Writer: Daniel Kraus
Artist: Chris Shehan
Publisher: Vault Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: The vanishing of a Comfort Notch citizen compels Kat to follow a hidden-in-plain-sight clue…before the worst omen of all manifests from the leaves.

INGRID: As Kat learns more about her mother and looks into the past, she finds that Comfort Notch seems to want to keep some things hidden. Determined to discover more, she doesn’t realize the magnitude of what she might find. Never before have pretty fall leaves been so terrifying in this gripping tale of suspense!

 

 

KARMEN #1
Writer: Guillem March
Artist: Guillem March
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Spanish writer and artist GUILLEM MARCH is best known for his ongoing, extensive work with DC Comics on Batman, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn and has worked as an artist on several graphic novels including the English editions of Monika with Titan Comics and The Dream with Europe Comics. Here, he takes up his pen for an edgy new FIVE-PART SERIES about a highly unconventional angel named Karmen and the young woman she takes under her wing when a case of heartbreak strikes hard. Packed with surprises and metaphysics, this gorgeously drawn series deploys tenderness and humor as it dives deep into topics that matter.

CHRISTOPHER: This title intrigues me. I don’t think this comic will be for everyone, but the premise looks fascinating.

THE LAST WITCH #3
Writer: Conor McCreery
Artist: VV Glass
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: Nan, Saoirse, and Brahm make it to the village of Ballydoolin, searching for Bronagh, the Water Witch.

But as Saoirse taps into the power of her mysterious Witchmark to confront her greatest foe yet, she doesn’t realize the consequences of protecting her family are greater than she ever imagined.

STEPHEN: I think I’m too far down the rabbit hole on this series to turn back now. Wonderful art, an interesting story about witches, and magic, has me following this book to the very end.

 

 

NON-STOP SPIDER-MAN #1
Writer: Joe Kelly
Artist: Chris Bachalo, Dale Eaglesham
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: March 10, 2021
SOLICITATION: Get ready for the most action-packed, pulse-pounding, adrenaline-pumping comic OF ALL TIME! As the name implies, once you read page one, panel one, SPIDER-MAN DOES NOT STOP! A mystery at Empire State University thrusts Spider-Man into an adventure that starts in uptown Manhattan and will take him around the world, pitting him against Marvel Universe villains old and new and give you a Spider-Man adventure (and Spider-Man) the likes of which you’ve never seen.

STEPHEN: Wow. Oh Wow! This is a fun, fast-paced read, that feels like Crank! meets super-heroes, with an important message about not doing drugs. Loving everything Spider-Man Marvel Comics is putting out these days, and Non-Stop Spicer-Man has jumped to the top of my must read list.

SPECTER INSPECTORS #2
Writer: Bowen McCurdy and Kaitlyn Musto
Artist: Bowen McCurdy
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: After encountering a real (after) life demon while looking for ghosts in the most haunted town in America, Noa, Ko, Gus, and Astrid are on the hunt for this particular devil’s true name, to try and free Astrid from its demonic influence.
But they might just uncover more about the dark truth about idyllic Cape Grace, and the secrets surrounding its famous founding Mayor while they’re at it…

INGRID: What opened as a story about a group of internet ghost hunters has blossomed into a mystery with a side of demonic possession. The main characters are fun and tenacious, sticking to their streaming even while trying to help Astrid get rid of the demon.

WONDER WOMAN: EARTH ONE VOLUME 3
Writer: Grant Morrison
Artist: Yanick Paquette
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $25.49
SOLICITATION: The epic conclusion to the New York Times bestselling original graphic novel series from the critically acclaimed superstar duo of writer Grant Morrison and artist Yanick Paquette is here!

Maxwell Lord’s assault on Paradise Island with his destructive A.R.E.S. armor is on the horizon, and in order to weather the war that is coming, Wonder Woman will need the full might of her sisters by her side! Can Diana finally bring her message of peace to Man’s World, or will Max Lord’s war burn the world and the Amazons to ashes?
Continuing the tradition of the critically acclaimed Earth One tales that challenge the status quo of DC’s greatest heroes, Wonder Woman: Earth One Vol. 3 is Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette’s final installment of this visionary graphic novel series.
