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.

THE MANY DEATHS OF LAILA STARR #2
Writer: Ram V
Artist: Filipe Andrade
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: The avatar of Death now exists in the mortal world as twenty-something Laila Starr after humanity begins the path to discovering immortality.
* Years pass, and Laila unexpectedly meets the boy who will change everything at one of the formative moments in his life.
* Laila must decide what she truly wants from him — and how far these revelations will push her…

INGRID: The Many Deaths of Laila Starr is a phenomenal book. At times profound, at times darkly humorous, always intensely interesting, I cannot recommend it enough. To top it off, the artwork is beautiful and luminously expressive.

RADIANT BLACK #4
Writer: Kyle Higgins
Artist: Marcelo Costa
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: It was always going to come to this: Radiant Black vs Radiant Red in a knock-down drag-out fight across the city of Lockport! And believe us when we say that after this fight, nothing will ever be the same again. For Lockport or for Radiant Black. We actually mean it.

INGRID: While on the surface, Radiant Black is another take on a young man gaining superpowers, the story takes unexpected twists and turns. Already, Radiant Black must face off against Radiant Red, even while he is trying to grasp the ramifications of where his powers come from. And if everything is going to change this early on, it is bound to be exciting!

STEPHEN: So down for this series. It gets better and better with each issue.

RANGERS OF THE DIVIDE #1 (OF 4)

The group prepares to venture out on their first mission into uncharted territories. Are they ready to face what awaits them . . . or will danger find them first? Debut comic series written and illustrated by comic artist Megan Huang. Dragons, mythical beasts, and sci-fi technology!
