The First Family of Comics takes center stage this week, as they take on Galactus and his friend, Harold. Plus, strange things are afoot at DC Comics (or are they?), your favorite burger joint, Motor Crush Vol. 2, Usagi Yojimbo: The Hidden #4, Hawkman #1, and Tomb Raider: Inferno #1 all go under the microscope.
A few days ago, Marvel brought us the news that Marvel’s “First Family” was coming back to monthly comics. When they first faded away back in 2015, I wrote a column that I was fine with them taking a break until the House of Ideas put together a concept that would be worth the time and money. I’m hoping they’ve made that happen.
It took Harley Quinn over 20 years to become an overnight success, and now the Clown Princess of Crime is getting a new story arc from writer Sam Humphries and artist John Timms, as Harley Quinn takes on Granny Goodness and the Female Furies.
One of the best-attended panels was about the upcoming Marvel Black Panther film, due to be released this weekend!
I’m hoping it will be a big success, revive the character’s comics, and also improve the company’s diversity.
What do you do when you wake up in the future? Hail to the King, baby!

But back in 1940, he was just a young artist trying to make his mark… Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Red Raven Comics #1 awaits!
