BETA RAY BILL #1
Writer: Daniel Warren Johnson
Artist: Daniel Warren Johnson
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: March 31, 2021
SOLICITATION:
FROM THE PAGES OF DONNY CATES’ THOR AND SPINNING OUT OF THE EVENTS OF KING IN BLACK!
The second-most famous wielder of Mjolnir. The right-hand man to the god of Thunder. And now, a warrior without his best weapon. Beta Ray Bill is tired of playing second fiddle to Thor – and with Bill’s famous hammer, Stormbreaker, recently destroyed at the new All-Father’s hands, tensions are higher than ever. The Korbinite must strike out in search of a new weapon…and a new destiny. Assuming he can first defeat a Knullified Fin Fang Foom! Writer/artist Daniel Warren Johnson (Extremity, Murder Falcon) and colorist Mike Spicer take Beta Ray Bill on a journey beyond the shadow of a god! Plus: This oversize first issue contains an exclusive conversation between Johnson and Beta Ray Bill’s creator, the legendary Walter Simonson!

STEPHEN: A horse faced hero and Fing-Fang-Foom battling it out over the fate of Asgard. Why wouldn’t you buy this booK?

GIGA #3
Writer: Alex Paknadel
Artist: John Le
Publisher: Vault Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Evan’s oldest friend returns to find the prosthetics she once built transformed into her doppelganger. Mason and the Order of The Red Relay investigate an elephant graveyard of towering Giga remains.

INGRID: On the surface, it’s a moral dilemma that might be a murder mystery. Underneath, that mystery is complicated by technology, religion, and people seeking to maintain power and control. The story is rich with intrigue and interesting characters besides.

 

SHADECRAFT #1
Writer: Joe Henderson
Artist: Antonio Fabela
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Zadie Lu is afraid of her own shadow. She’s a teenager, so she REALLY should have grown out of it by now, right? But something weird is happening in her small town. Zadie could swear the shadows are coming to life. Watching her. Trying to KILL her. But how do you fight something you can’t even touch? And how does all of this tie into her FAMILY, of all things? From the creative team that brought you the Eisner-nominated SKYWARD, writer JOE HENDERSON (showrunner of Netflix’s Lucifer) and artist LEE GARBETT (Captain Marvel). Join Zadie Lu as she ventures into the shadows to face her fears and discovers a legacy she never knew she had.

CHRISTOPHER: Sometimes the simplest things are the scariest. I feel like if the creative team can pull off the tension needed for this story, then this title will be amazing.

INGRID: I am always on the lookout for books with interesting concepts, and this certainly is one. I like the idea of shadows coming to life, but also being tied into the main character’s family. That’s a touch that can add some real depth to a horror concept.

SILK #1 (OF 5)
Writer: Maurene Goo
Artist: Takeshi Miyazawa
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: By day Cindy Moon is an intrepid reporter for the upstart new media empire Threats & Menaces under her old boss, J. Jonah Jameson. By night, she’s Silk, crime fighting super hero! But those worlds are about to collide, as an investigation into a series of gangland murders puts Silk and everyone she loves in danger! Who is this powerful new player in New York’s underworld, where did she come from, and what is she doing with that strange cat demon? It will take all of Cindy’s prowess as reporter and hero to find the answers…and stay alive! Written by Maurene Goo (I Believe in a Thing Called Love) and drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa (RUNAWAYS, GHOST SPIDER), Cindy is on assignment, and nothing can stop her!

CHRISTOPHER: I am a fan of Silk and seeing an Asian American writer and a Japanese artist taking on this title makes me happy.

STEPHEN: I love Silk! Hope this series has Cindy Moon tackling some big issues, and bigger villains. I also hope it goes 100 issues. Definitely worth picking up!
