This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast: Five Weapons, Bruce Lee, and the Man of Tai Chi! DC Comics moves to California, Uncanny X-Men #13, and Superman #24.
The next issue of Five Weapons by Bomb Queen writer Jimmie Robinson is here! After besting the Knife Club, imposter “Tyler Shainline” now takes on the staff club using only his wits as his weapon of choice. Will he be able to talk his way out of this one? More after the jump!
Before heading out to your local comic book shop today, take a look at the titles arriving from Image Comics this week.
Welcome to the School of Five Weapons, a place where parents send their children to become world-class assassins and hitmen. All students must choose one of five weapon clubs in order to graduate: Knife, Gun, Staff, Archery, or Exotic Weapon. Recently, Tyler Shainline has enrolled into this school, son of the world famous Shainline assassins. Much to the chagrin of everyone, he has not chosen a weapon yet. Tyler Shainline must use his wits to combat the teachers and students of Five Weapons, and prevent them from learning his true identity.
Knives? Staves? Bows? Exotic weapons? Guns? Which will Tyler Shainline choose at The School of Five Weapons? That is the looming question in the weapon driven Five Weapons from Image Comics, created by Jimmie Robinson of Bomb Queen fame (or, perhaps, infamy). How does Five Weapons hold up? Find out with another locked and loaded Major Spoilers review!
When the world’s deadliest, stealthiest, and most infamous assassins need a place to educate their children, an institution that respects and upholds their values, they turn to the prestigious School of Five Weapons. At the setting of the new Image Comics/Shadowline mini-series by Jimmie Robinson (BOMB QUEEN), FIVE WEAPONS, students train in the martial arts, pledging their loyalty to one “club”: Knives, Staves, Archery, Exotics, and Guns.

As each of the teaser images for the upcoming Five Weapons series arrives in my email box, I keep getting the feeling that the book is taking the concepts behind Morning Glories and twisting them. Or maybe it is just because the characters are being introduced in the same mysterious fashion.
