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.

BLACK HAMMER REBORN #3
Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artist: Caitlin Yarsky
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Twenty years ago, Lucy Weber fought madmen and monsters—today she finds her marriage falling apart and her children in danger. And now past threats—and rogue heroes—return to herald the end of the world!

INGRID: I find it interesting that, so far, many of the stories about Black Hammer are more about the absence of Black Hammer. Lucy has been a hero, but she has set the hammer down, and we do not quite know why. Now her life and her marriage are falling apart, and she may be forced to take up the hammer again. Excellent storytelling in a world full of fascinating characters.

 

 

DARK AGES #1
Writer: Tom Taylor
Artist: Iban Coello
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION:
This is what the Watcher has been watching for!
• A danger older than the Earth threatens everything. For once, the heroes who have saved the planet so many times are almost powerless in the face of it.
• X-Men and Avengers assemble. Spider-People and Fantastic Four come together. Heroes for Hire fight alongside Champions.
• None of it will be enough.
• The lights are about to go out.
• The world outside our window…is about to end.

STEPHEN: I was expecting grim-dark, but got a really interesting post-apocalyptic setup for this series. Will it have lasting repercussions? Probably not… at least for the 616.

DEMON DAYS: CURSED WEB #1
Writer: Peach Momoko
Artist: Peach Momoko
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: SPIDERS AND WOLVES AND YOKAI… OH MY!
Mariko Yashida journeys deep into a dark forest to find answers about her past. Instead, she finds a magical wolf with three toes and a strange girl with a pet spider. But there are deadly creatures in these woods too – a mysterious, blue-skinned woman and a giant with super-strength and claws – and they’re after Mariko! Don’t miss this epic tale, straight from the creative mind of STORMBREAKER PEACH MOMOKO! Book THREE of FIVE of the DEMON DAYS saga!

CHRISTOPHER: I enjoy this interpretation of the X-Men and I’m curious to see what new characters Peach plan to introduce.

LUCKY DEVIL #2 (OF 4)
Writer: Cullen Bunn
Artist: Fran Galan
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: After an exorcism gone wrong, down-on-his-luck schlub Stanley finds he’s retained all of the demon’s supernatural abilities and begins to use his new powers to build a cult. Meanwhile, he finds himself hunted down by the legions of Hell and demons wanting to reclaim Stanley’s newfound powers.

CHRISTOPHER: I admit that the first issue gave me mixed feelings, but I think about this title every so often. I guess I’m hooked.

 

 

 

THE MANY DEATHS OF LAILA STARR #5
Writer: Ram V
Artist: Filipe Andrade
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: What will Laila Starr do when she’s finally given the chance to resume the mantle of Death?
Finding herself back in the world, Laila searches out Darius and discovers that for the first time she will be witnessing the death of someone close to her.
When they are both given a chance at immortality, their individual decisions lead to a surprising and touching series finale.

INGRID: More years have passed, and Laila Starr lives again as a mortal with one last chance to stop humans from becoming immortal. This is a beautiful study of the many meanings life and death can take on. At times absurd, at times sublime, this is a book like no other.
