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
Writer: Ram V
Artist: Filipe Andrade
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION:
* A powerful new series for fans of The Wicked + The Divine and The Dreaming from Ram V (Justice League Dark) and Filipe Andrade (Captain Marvel) that explores the fine line between living and dying in Mumbai through the lens of magical realism.
* With humanity on the verge of discovering immortality, the avatar of Death is fired and relegated to the world below to live out her now-finite days in the body of twenty-something Laila Starr in Mumbai.
* Struggling with her new-found mortality, Laila has found a way to be placed in the time and place where the creator of immortality will be born…
* But will Laila take her chance to permanently reverse the course of (future) history…or does a more shocking fate await her?

INGRID: This sounds so intriguing to me, and over the past few years I have become a huge fan of Ram V. I also love the fact that it takes place in Mumbai, and the Death we’re following is not the Euro-centric guy with the scythe.

RADIANT BLACK #3
Writer: Kyle Higgins
Artist: Marcello Costa
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Okay, that’s it. Nathan’s getting down to business today: he’s finally working on his novel. All he needs is some solitary writing time-no “helpful” parents, no superhero social media, and definitely no alien voices beaming an unintelligible language into his brain. That’s not too much to ask for, right?

STEPHEN: There is something about this book that could lead to something really big in the long term. You should definitely grab this book now, so when it starts selling for $60 you can make a little money for your kids’ college funds.

 

 

STRAY DOGS #3
Writer: Tony Fleecs
Artist: Trish Forstner
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Under the farmhouse, something rots. And no matter how well they’re trained, dogs will be dogs. Now they’ve uncovered something that can’t just be buried again.

INGRID: Stray Dogs takes the horror and suspense of a story about a serial killer to new heights through the eyes – and noses – of dogs. The dogs learn more and more about what is going on, but what can they possibly do? Equal parts charming and nerve-wracking, this is a terrific read.

 

 

WAY OF X #1
Writer: Si Spurrier
Artist: Bob Quinn
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: THE WAY TO THE FUTURE OF X!
Mutantkind has built a new Eden… but there are serpents in this garden. Some mutants struggle to fit in. Some mutants turn to violence and death. And the children whisper of the Patchwork Man, singing in their hearts…Only one mutant senses the looming shadows. Snared by questions of death, law and love, only NIGHTCRAWLER can fight for the soul of Krakoa. Only he – and the curious crew he assembles – can help mutants defeat their inner-darkness and find a new way to live. The WAY OF X. SI SPURRIER (X-MEN LEGACY) and BOB QUINN (CAPTAIN AMERICA) push the frontiers of Krakoa in this unmissable entry into the bold new REIGN OF X.

CHRISTOPHER: I’m fascinated with this theme that mutantkind have created a nation of acceptance but some of them are still struggling to fit in.


ROBOT OVERLORD: You are not judged by your efforts you put in; you are judged on your performance.
