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.

BLACK HAMMER: VISIONS #5
Writer: Kelly Thompson
Artist: Leonardo Romera
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Kelly Thompson! Leonardo Romero! An exciting reimagination of the Eisner Award-winning Black Hammer series told by guest writers and artists such as Patton Oswalt, Geoff Johns, Mariko Tamaki, Chip Zdarsky, Kelly Thompson, and more of comic’s top talents! Eisner nominated writer Kelly Thompson and her superstar Marvel collaborators on Hawkeye Leonardo Romero and Jordie Bellaire team up once again for an action-packed Black Hammer one-shot that pits the powerful Spiral City vigilante Skulldigger against a new and cunning thief that is sure to leave him with scars. Part of an expansive look at the Black Hammer universe following a full cast of colorful characters.

INGRID: If you love the world of Black Hammer, these one-shots tell stories from serious to delightful, expanding characters and with them, the world. Kelly Thompson has done some terrific stuff, and I look forward to seeing her take on a Skulldigger story.

DIE #17
Writer: Kieron Gillen
Artist: Stephanie Hans
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: “BLEED,” Part Two-Hell is other people, said Sartre. Hell disagrees. Hell has things to share.

CHRISTOPHER: This is my favorite comic run right now. The combination of tabletop RPG meets literary heroes is right up my alley.

 

 

 

THE GOOD ASAIN #2 (OF 9)
Writer: Pornsak Pichetshote
Artist: Alexandre Tefenkgi
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: The Chinatown noir keeps flipping the genre on its head, as Edison Hark comes face to face with a killer – and more suffering, lust, and soul than he’d ever imagine in Chinatown.

CHRISTOPHER: I’ve heard a lot of history of what went on during this time and exploring in comic book is educational and fascinating.

STEPHEN: This is definitely a MUST READ comics. Simply a great noir detective tale against the backdrop of racism.

 

 

THE SECRET LAND #1
Writer: Christopher Emgård
Artist: Tomás Aira
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Hitler’s dead. Ben and Katherine are supposed to be together, happy. Instead, Ben fights the war in the Pacific with the reckless heroism of one who believes his fiance killed in action. Yet, Katharine lives, undercover and about to arrive at the Third Reich’s last bastion. Something is waiting for her there, for all of them, and it is hungry. Cosmic horror from the creators of The Whispering Dark.

INGRID: Action, espionage, romance…and cosmic horror! I am definitely intrigued. This is a big story that already spans the globe, and setting it during the fall of the Third Reich is not only fascinating, but creates additional tension and desperation.


ROBOT OVERLORD: Happiness comes from a good life.
