Though we were busy meeting new friends, and old fans at Nerdtacular 2012, that didn’t stop us from combing through the list of new comics coming out this week, and giving you a list of ten books you should read this week.
Mark Millar’s Clint Magazine is a collection of comics and a few articles mostly focused on Millar himself. Millar’s usually good enough in doses, will a larger one be good too, let’s find out. . .
Hot off the back of his 2012 Kapow convention success, Kick-Ass
creator Mark Millar launches a stunning new volume of CLiNT, with a
new #1! Four brand-new stories begin between its covers, coupled to a
brand new look, new logo and new attitude!
Or – “The Vicissitudes Of The Reviewing Game…”
One of the great disappointments of doing reviews for Major Spoilers comes when I anticipate a book’s release, then miss the actual review when the comic comes out. When Secret Service was announced back in 2011, I mentally earmarked it for consumption, then totally bobbled it upon the book’s release. Though we sold out of #1, I managed to get my hands on a copy of #2, and we can all just pretend that I never missed the other issue in the first place. Sound like a plan? Excellent! Are you sitting comfortably?
Looking for something good to read this week? The Major Spoilers Staff has sifted through this week’s releases and have picked a number of books you might want to check out as well.
In the sequel to the Mark Millar/Jae Lee original story, Witchblade: Demon, comes Witchblade: Demon Reborn #1 this upcoming July from Dynamite Entertainment and Top Cow Productions! Witchblade: Demon Reborn #1 is written by Ande Parks and drawn by Jose Luis, with covers by Dennis Calero and Jae Lee! The issue also includes the original Mark Millar/Jae Lee story at no extra cost! Witchblade: Demon Reborn will maintain its $3.99 price point, and include the original story for a 48-page oversized comic book!
Or – “It’s Easy To Forget That Crime Capers Are Committed By Criminals…”
Not so long ago, Mark Millar created “Wanted,” a story of high-level super-criminals and the man who wakes up to realize that he’s actually one of them. I had been worried that this series would be too similar to that one, but Supercrooks actually surprised me with it’s take on the dark side of super-powers…
With the Dredd film, starring Karl Urban, set to debut later this year, two of the world’s biggest comic book writers are brought together to send the world’s most famous lawman on a mission to find God!
Mark Millar has written an all-new, in-continuity lead-in to his hotly anticipated new series SUPERCROOKS, to run exclusively in CLiNT! Make sure you read this before you pick up #1!
Or – “It’s Pronounced Exactly The Same As Frank Miller…”
Three words: Edgy Captain Marvel.
With that premise, I think you’re either immediately in, or immediately out.
Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Kick Ass 2 #3 that kicks off the promise the series will continue a regular print schedule until the series is complete.
