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.

BERMUDA #3 (OF 4)
Writer: John Layman
Artist: Nick Bradshaw
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: Bermuda must get to the north shore of Triangle, the island that is at ground zero of a bizarre dimensional portal-it’s a two-day ride via passenger lizard… or it’s a half-day walk if you’re willing to sneak through Soldier’s Bay. But the men who live in Soldier’s Bay are crazy, well-armed, and don’t tolerate trespassers. And they’re only slightly less dangerous than the giant, poisonous spiders that surround the encampment. Odds are, Bermuda is going to regret taking this shortcut…

CHRISTOPHER: In my quest to search for comic books I would want to introduce to my daughter, Bermuda is the highest running contender. Looking forward to seeing what the next issue introduces!

COMPASS #4
Writer: Robert Mackenzie and David Walker
Artist: Justin Greenwood
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Deep in the belly of the underworld, undying beasts and warrior ghouls await…but can Shahidah El-Amin survive the last deadly guardian of the fabled Cauldron of Eternal Life? Finding her way through the darkness is only the beginning—outside the cavern, a Mongolian war party awaits! From 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), Shahi’s quest for the prize of immortality nears its thrilling end!

INGRID: Shahidah is getting closer to the fabled Cauldron of Eternal Life, but so is her former colleague and current rival, Ling. They are both in the cavern, and if “Eternal Life” is indeed a thing, there may be fearsome foes lurking in the darkness. History inspires an exciting tale of adventure!

I AM BATMAN #1
Writer: John Ridley
Artist: Olivier Coipel
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: In the throes of Future State, the streets of Gotham City cry for justice and Jace Fox answers the call! With a new and improved Bat-Suit, Jace hits the streets to inspire and protect…as he follows the trail of the voice of misinformation and violence—the anarchistic Anti-Oracle! Can the new Dark Knight counterbalance their plan to inspire armed rebellion in the citizens of Gotham?! Can one man inspire a city?

MATTHEW: Are we getting the comics that Future State was supposed to lead to in the 5G? I don’t know, but for some reason, this one looks like something I’d enjoy, especially with Ridley on the writing chores.

IRON MAN #12
Writer: Christopher Cantwell
Artist: Angel Unzueta
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Iron Man is a long way from Earth. He now stands on the decks of Galactus’ worldship, Taa II, in deep space, and though he doesn’t have to face the World-Eater himself this time around, he certainly has to deal with the ship’s most brutal and lethal defenses. If he manages to survive those, it’s only a matter of moments before Tony Stark will have to turn around and confront his fiercest foe of recent memory, KORVAC. Tony must also face the mad android’s zealous disciples, all of whom have a personal ax to grind with the Golden Avenger-THE CONTROLLER, UNICORN, BLIZZARD and their most recent addition, a robotically enslaved ORIGINAL HUMAN TORCH. This showdown has been a long time coming, but Tony wasn’t counting on five-against-one odds. Tony needs backup. Tony could use some friends.

MATTHEW: We’ve been building to this since the beginning of this volume, and I’m hoping for a big blowout, but I’ll settle for a bunch of cool cameos from Tony’s friends.

PRIMORDIAL #1
Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artist: Andrea Sorrentino
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: You knew there was no way Jon Kent was going to leave his best friend behind! Welcome to the future, Damian Wayne! (This is such a terrible idea!) Also, meet the new Legionnaires as they head to a secret undercover mission on the first man-made planet: Planet Gotham. Every page of this new DC epic plants seeds and ideas that will blast out across the DC Universe for months to come! All this, and Monster Boy is on the loose! Mind-bending sci-fi collides with Cold War thriller in this six-issue miniseries by the bestselling and Eisner-winning creative team behind GIDEON FALLS!

In 1957, the USSR launched the dog, Laika, into Earth’s orbit. Two years later, the USA responded with two monkeys, Able and Baker. These animals never returned. But, unbeknownst to everyone, they did not die in orbit…they were taken.

And now they are coming home.

MATTHEW: Laika’s back… and this time, it’s personal.

WYND #10
Writer: James Tynion IV
Artist: Michael Dialynas
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: Who will win, who will lose, and who will be caught in between?

Caught in the battle, Wynd and his friends must try to escape with their lives and resume their journey to the fabled Northport. And while they will gain new allies, some old friends may be left behind.

INGRID: It’s the final chapter in the current story arc, and this has been a thrilling and captivating tale so far. Wynd and his friends find themselves facing more adventure than they ever wanted to between Vampyres looking to cause chaos and Faeries who are extremely distrustful of humans. But youth is all about growing up – and changing. This is a wonderful, engaging series.

X-MEN: TRIAL OF MAGNETO #2 (OF 5)

SOLICITATION: HABEAS CORPSES!
Heroes of the Marvel Universe came to Krakoa for a memorial. Now they’ve got a fight. Magneto pushes Krakoa and the Council to the brink! Also… there’s something wrong with the body…

CHRISTOPHER: I enjoyed the first issue of Trial of Magneto, and it was on my mind for several days after I read it. This has been an odd emotional rollercoaster as people find different ways to cope with the death of the Scarlet Witch.

ROBOT OVERLORD: The secret of staying young is good health and lying about your age.
