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.

COMPASS #3
Writer: Robert Mackenzie and David Walker
Artist: Justin Greenwood
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Evil pursues Shahidah El-Amin to the ends of the Earth…and miles beneath it. The quest for the Cauldron of Eternal Life takes Shahi—and her one-time sister-in-arms, now enemy, Ling Hua—deep within the darkest caverns of Christendom, where the treasure hunters face monsters, visions, and the legions of the dead!
The acclaimed OLD GUARD: TALES THROUGH TIME team of writers ROBERT MACKENZIE and DAVE WALKER (LAZARUS SOURCEBOOK) and artist JUSTIN GREENWOOD (LAZARUS: X +66, Stumptown) plunge comics’ boldest new heroine to thrilling depths of danger!

INGRID: Mysteries! Monsters! Action scholars! Compass breathes new life into the Middle Ages in a thrilling adventure set against the backdrop of the expansion of the Mongol Empire, with a heroine from the Abbasid Caliphate who just happens to be a two-fisted scholar.

RIVER OF LONDON: MONDAY, MONDAY #2
Writer: Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel
Artist: José María Beroy
Publisher: Titan Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: A werewolf is on the loose and will stop at nothing to avoid capture!

An unmissable brand-new era in the life of full-time cop and part-time wizard, Peter Grant.

INGRID: Monday, Monday is not only a police procedural involving an investigation of werewolves. It also gives us a few more tantalizing pieces of Thomas Nightingale’s background. A solid mystery, a fascinating take on magic and how it works, and a rich internal history make this a terrific read.

STEPHEN: I enjoy the heck out of the Rivers of London books, and the comic book series continues the adventures between the adventures. Fans will definitely want to pick this one up.

SECOND CHANCES #1
Writer: Ricky Mammone
Artist: Max Bertolini
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Second Chances Hotline – call now and get a new identity! All you need is some cash, a proper referral, and a very good reason to start over. When Leblanc, the man behind the hotline, is approached by a shady figure from his past, he’s forced to accept a new client who doesn’t meet any of the requirements – a client with chemically induced amnesia in desperate need of protection. Up-and-coming writer RICKY MAMMONE and artist MAX BERTOLINI (The Witcher, Nathan Never) explode onto the scene with this psychedelic, action-packed, bizarre noir that feels like John Wick punching through an existential French New Wave fever dream.

CHRISTOPHER: The cover art caught my eye immediately and I knew that this was going to be in my reading list this week.

WAY OF X #5
Writer: Si Spurrier
Artist: Bob Quinn
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: THIS IS THE WAY! What happens when the third law of Krakoa is broken? What happens when all other solutions have failed? What happens when Nightcrawler finally finds the Way?
CHRISTOPHER: Way of X asks some very interesting questions about the new mutant kingdom and their society. Plus, having Nightcrawler and Legion as your point of view characters is incredibly engaging.


ROBOT OVERLORD: If you are afraid to shake the dice, you will never throw a six.
