Ah, summer. The perfect time to think about going outside, getting some sun, enjoying all nature has to offer—and then staying inside to read comics anyway. Happily, this summer’s titles will definitely keep you both occupied and entertained! Here’s io9's guide to all the fantastic new series coming out over the new…
This news is as entirely unexpected as it is great: Boom! Studios has announced that its wildly successful teen comic series Lumberjanes is going to crossover with DC Comics’ very own Gotham Academy, creating what might just be the hippest teen mystery team-up in comic book history.
After missing out on a nomination last year for the first time since 2003, DC Comics has two series up for the GLAAD Media Awards. The excellent Midnighter and Harley Quinn join Lumberjanes, Angela: Queen of Hel, and The Wicked + The Divine in the Outsanding Comic Books category for their portrayal of LGBT characters.
Within the first six pages of Boom’s new Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series, the teen heroes declare that it’s “Morphin’ Time” and hold out the small handheld devices that transform them into the Power Rangers. It’s a moment that is ripped straight from the TV series so cleanly, I almost felt like a kid again.
2015 was a great year for comic books, and 2016 is shaping up to be just as exciting—and financially ruinous. Seriously, take a deep breath, look longingly at your wallet, and get ready to write up your pull list of some of 2016's coolest sounding comics.
Next month the teenagers with attitude that we all know and love, the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, will begin a new series of comic book adventures. We’ve already seen how absurdly stylish they are underneath their Ranger suits, but what about with them on? Well... they look like Power Rangers!
Free Comic Book Day is a most wonderful time for comic fans—I mean, after all, what can be more wonderful than free comics? Diamond has revealed some of the premier books that are coming for the special day next year, so you can start salivating right now instead of waiting for May.
Outside of their iconic ranger suits, Power Rangers’ the fashion of the series’ teen heroes can probably best be described as “Achingly 90s.” But that’s not going to be case in Boom studio’s new Power Rangers comic: these are teenagers with attitude and really nice clothes.
It’s all change in this week’s all new comics—Marvel is continuing its “All-New, All Different” reboot with new comics for the Guardians, Captain America, Spider-Gwen, and more. Chewbacca begins his own series. Plus, The Goon returns for Halloween, and Superman has A BEARD! Let’s dig in, shall we?
It’s a quiet week for new comics—as indicated by a bevy of annuals. But in the midst of this quiet, we’ve got From Under Mountains, one of our must-read comics of the season. On top of that? Agents of SHIELD’s Melinda May gets her own one-off comic! Let’s check out all the new series of the week, shall we?
It’s an incredibly quiet week in new comics... almost too quiet. Such a sinister environ is perfect for the release of Wild’s End: The Enemy Within, the follow-up to the fantastic tale of 1930s anthropomorphic animals holding off an alien invasion (or so they thought!). Let’s dig in and check out whats new in comics…
It’s a relatively quiet week in comics—which makes it the perfect time for us to finally get our hands on Captain America: White, a comic that’s been in the works since 2008. But that’s not all for this week’s new comics. There’s also science fiction adventures from Arrow’s Marc Guggenheim, and tons more!
Sure, they might not be coming back to TV until 2016, but this week X-Files’ 11th season kicks off in a new run of comics. But that’s not all there is to enjoy in the newest comics of the week: DC’s Bombshells make their physical debut, Sleepy Hollow’s Abbie and Ichabod return to comics, and much, much more!
It’s a quiet week for new releases in comics, but nothing really is quiet when you get DC animation maestro Bruce Timm giving us his take on New God Bekka as Wonder Woman. Joining Wonder Woman in this week’s new series? Why, satanic rock bands, metaphysical crime tales, a Red Sonja/Conan team up, and more!
Sure, Hank Pym and Scott Lang make all that shrinking look fun, but as you can see in this week’s adaptation of the Richard Matheson classic The Shrinking Man, it can be pretty petrifying. But that’s not all in this week’s new comics—Bruce Timm writes Superman! Hacktivists! Zombie Soldiers! And more!
It’s been a long time since the Power Rangers team that started it all has graced TV screens, but with a movie reboot on the horizon and 22 seasons of Super Sentai antics under its belt across various incarnations, the original teenagers with attitude are making a welcome return to comics.
Oh, and did we mention that the U.S. brought giant robots with them? And that this was written by Saga’s Brian K. Vaughn? We Stand On Guard leads the charge of all the coolest new comics starting this week, but it’s not all there is: Barb Wire makes her return! Space Knights! Grant Morrison madness! And more!
Call it Santa Claus Year One if you want. Or even All Star Santa Claus. However you choose to describe Grant Morrison’s new Klaus comic for Boom Studios, chances are it won’t possible convey the insanity of the barbaric, bloodstained St. Nick in the above cover of issue #1, carrying a deer carcass.
Marvel’s big summer event kicks off with a bang, as the Main and Ultimate universes crash together to deadly effect. But it’s not all there is to this week’s new comics. DC’s digital Lynda-Carter-inspired Wonder Woman comic comes to print, and the Matrix vs. Apocalypse showdown Arcadia begins. So many comics!
Are you ready for some free comics? I certainly hope so, since May 2nd is Free Comic Book Day all across the country. There are dozens and dozens of offerings, but we know exactly which ones you need to make sure you pick up tomorrow. One warning: Once you read these, the chances of you wanting to buy more comics is…
