Graphic Spotlight – Roughneck

Jeff Lemire explores the dangers of hockey, heritage, and the haunting of our mistakes in this new OGN!

It’s no secret that Jeff Lemire is one of the busiest writers in all of comics. Between his work for Marvel, Valiant, and Image he currently has at least six titles coming out (Old Man Logan, Descender, Bloodshot Reborn, Royal City, A.D. After Death, Moon Knight) and those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head! Add in his previous body of work at DC Comics and Vertigo and you wonder how the heck he finds time to sleep, eat, or create his latest character study, Roughneck.

Roughneck takes Lemire back to his roots, closer to the likes of his seminal opus, Essex County, which in 2010 was named one of the five Essential Canadian Novels of the Decade by CBC. After five years, Roughneck finally arrives on shelves this week, that he not only wrote but also drew. That’s right, over 270 pages of brand-new Jeff Lemire artwork is coming our way! The story?

Roughneck centers around siblings Derek and Beth. Derek Oullette was a hockey enforcer whose best days are behind him. Derek, now living off of his reputation and his fading glory since a violent incident on the ice ended his career, is back home in the small northern Canadian community where he grew up. He drinks too much and fights anybody on a whim. When his estranged sister, Beth, comes home to escape her abusive boyfriend’s torturous treatment, she and Derek make an excursion to a hunting camp in the woods where they hope to escape the seemingly cursed nature of their family. Unfortunately, the demons of their world won’t give up on them that easily, as Beth’s ex-boyfriend comes closer to finding them, threatening to shatter their newfound peace after fighting so hard to leave their paths of self-destruction behind them.

For fans of Jeff Lemire this is a homecoming. Definitely welcome Roughneck with open arms.

Graphic Spotlight – Savage

The most dangerous game involves dinosaurs and soccer stars in this new epic adventure!

Valiant has been on a hot streak lately with new adventures for established characters in titles like X-O Manowar #1 and with new faces in recent collections like Divinity, Britannia, and with this week’s new release, Savage. In a day and age where there’re so many titles fighting for your hard-earned dollars, quality is king. Fortunately, Valiant looks to be making another strong case with this mini-series at a $9.99 price tag.

The story’s a fun premise to begin. A famous soccer star and his wife who used be a supermodel (I’m sure in no way related to Victoria and David Beckham), disappeared nearly fifteen years ago. There’s been no sighting of them since. To the world they were fish food after taking off on a final flight on their private jet. The world doesn’t know the true story but now you will discover their fate and the fate of the child she was carrying.

On an uncharted island filled with dangers unbeknownst by modern man, they will struggle to hang on to their humanity in the face of prehistoric threats. Yeah that’s right, freakin’ dinosaurs! Of course, dinosaurs won’t be the only challenges they encounter. Their journey from stars to savages is charted in this pulse pounding chronicle.

From the scripts of B. Clay Moore (Aloha, Hawaiian Dick) and then mastery of Clayton Henry (Archer & Armstrong) and Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn), whose goal in life is to live in Jurassic Park, you’re getting incredible depictions of dinosaur hunting, drug running, plane crashes, and survival on instinct alone. Did you want “Jurassic Park” meets “Lost” with a splash of “Castaway”? Because if you didn’t know you should have wanted that, now you do.

Graphic Spotlight – Superman Vol. 2: Trials of the Super Son

Superman continues to soar in Superman Vol. 2: Trials of the Super Son

The DC Rebirth trade paperbacks continue to come out at a surprisingly consistent pace. While there are some once-monthly titles that we’re awaiting their first collections of, the twice monthlies are beginning to release their second waves. Why not start that second wave with the first of the first? The birth of the Super Sons in the post-New 52 era of DC Comics begins here! Superboy! Robin! Teaming up and leading into one of DC’s best current titles on the shelves.

Truly, one of the great core books since the DC Rebirth publishing initiative began has been Superman. No, that’s not a typo. Superman is good again. Heck, a lot of the time, Superman is great again. It’s the best Supes stories fans have had, arguably, since Geoff Johns’ run a decade ago (but who argues about such things about comics?). As crazy as it sounds what has made Superman relevant hasn’t been epic clashes with Doomsday or Lex Luthor. It hasn’t been depressive episodes about the responsibilities of his powers to the greater world. It hasn’t been about hiding his identity from Lois Lane or worrying about saving her every issue. No, it’s Jon Kent, Superboy, the first son of the Last Son of Krypton.

Superman has grown into Pa Kent and that has allowed the team of Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason, Doug Mahnke, and now additions in Jorge Jiminez, Jaime Mendoza, Trevor Scott, Mark Morales, Christian Alamy, Keith Champagne, and Norm Rapmund, to explore what feels like fresh character-driven territory for the Man of Tomorrow. Tomorrow isn’t just about what his legacy might be anymore, his and Lois’ legacy will be Jon Kent and everything he does must have him as a consideration. As Damian Wayne has led to discovering incredible depths to his pointy-eared father, so too has Jon tugged on Kal El’s cape in a new way. Think I’m exaggerating? Pick up this read and prove, me, wrong!

Graphic Spotlight – Black Hammer Vol. 1: Secret Origins

What happens when the world’s greatest heroes are trapped on a farm?

Okay, so that seems like a bit of a crazy setup, right? Well, it is and it isn’t. The first collection of writer Jeff Lemire (Royal City, Descender, Bloodshot Reborn), artist Dean Ormston (The Sandman), and colorist Dave Stewart (Hellboy), brilliant new series, Black Hammer,  has at last arrived. Here’s your choice to get to know the mysterious past of the heroes of Spiral City. In these first six issues you’ll learn more about Abraham Slam, Golden Gail, Colonel Weird, Madame Dragonfly, and Barbalien!

The creators will take you on a whirlwind tour-de-force of character-driven storytelling. There’s so much love for superheroes in this series while at the same time Lemire, Ormston, and Stewart are fearless in offering twists on all the familiar tropes. Your expectations about who these heroes are and were will be exploded and rewarded. The plotting is structured in such a way as to keep you guessing but without feeling as though anything is unearned. Everything you love about heroes is in here and everything you’ve come to be weary about the genre is addressed. There’s almost nothing you can’t enjoy about this series.

Evoking classic tales of 1950’s superheroics and still presenting a “family” of compelling characters, this may be the best new superhero universe in years. If you’re looking for a book to rekindle your love of what superhero comics are capable of, then read Black Hammer. ‘Nuff said.

Graphic Spotlight – BATGIRL VOL. 1: BEYOND BURNSIDE

Batgirl’s world tour starts here!

No corner of the DC Universe hasn’t been touched by the events of Rebirth. For most all of DC’s titles it’s been an incredible fresh slate, not a reboot, but a new point to jump on and take the characters towards stories that feel earned, logical, self-contained without being disconnected, and delivering some the strongest stories from the publisher in a long time and on time. DC’s promise of a new direction for its characters in a way that doesn’t discount the last five years while still providing a new jumping on point for new or casual fans continues in the first collection of Batgirl’s newest adventures, Batgirl Vol. 1: Beyond Burnside.

Barbara Gordon’s return to the cape and cowl was met with great trepidation back in the old days (you know, 2011). Gail Simone wrote a three year story of healing, both physically and emotionally, grounding Barbara in overcoming the trauma that put her in a wheelchair for years of her life. It was a tricky line to walk and Simone began with a good jumping off point that grew into one of the best books DC was publishing. Then came the pop-tastic makeover by Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher, and artist Babs Tarr.

Barbara was given a neighborhood of Gotham to call her own, the eponymous Burnside. It was a fresh new take on Babs and her world, where she was a brilliant student and a superhero establishing her own independence from the Bat-family.

Now, New York Times best-selling creators Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time) and Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire) will take Batgirl on a journey to elevate her skills. The trek will include stops in hotspots like Okinawa, Singapore, Seoul, and even Shanghai. Everywhere she goes, Batgirl’s life will be threatened by lethal warriors who all bear a mysterious mark indicating “The Student.” Which, of course, baits the question that if there are students, Batgirl will need to track down their teacher…

As Batgirl goes on her own international hunt for the leader of this mysterious group of fighters, she’ll improve her own skills and cross paths with legendary heroes. If you’ve been waiting for Barbara Gordon to ascend into the grander scale of the superhero community then the wait is over.

Graphic Spotlight: Britannia

Behold, the world’s first detective is on a case that threatens his very soul…unless he can defy the lore of the gods!

I’m cheating here, a little. Did it come out this week? No. BUT there’s a newer must-read in town and it’s my duty to make sure you know about it. I present to you, dear readers, Britannia from Valiant Entertainment.

Do you love the snarky and dark adventures of anti-heroes like John Constanine? Are you addicted to the political and fantastical drama of Game of Thrones? Do you want a great read for just $9.99 that’ll blow your mind with gorgeous art and smart characters? Then you’ve no excuse not to pick up the tale of Antonius Axia.

In 65 A.D., everything was considered the “will of the Gods.” Rome is at the peak of Nero’s reign. You owned nothing and nothing about you was considered your own. In this time, Antonius Axia serves for the glory of the Roman Empire as one of its veteran soldiers. After an experience that nearly ends his life, Antonius finds himself on the outskirts of Rome when he’s summoned by Caesar himself. He’s to be sent to one of the edges of the known world and investigate reports of abnormal and potentially monstrous events. Now, the world’s first detective will be thrust into a situation where belief and proof collide, where the most basic truths about existence as he’s known it will be challenged, and the lives of everyone on the journey are at stake.

Peter Milligan (Justice League Dark, Hellblazer) brings his comics genius to a world where the power of gods and the prowess of men will be shifted. This terrific tale of terror and temptation jumps off  the page by powerhouse artist Juan Jose Ryp (Clone, Wolverine: The Best There Is). Follow them down this disturbing and fascinating path as they craft a story that will scratch all the darker itches on your pull list.

Graphic Spotlight – Deathstroke Vol. 1: The Professional

Deathstroke‘s rebirth will be his most personal and deadliest yet!

Deathstroke has been a character whose stock has risen in the last few years with exposure on the Arrowverse of shows on television. However, while his profile has spiked that hasn’t always been the case for the quality of his comic book adventures. Fortunately, amidst the plethora of improvements to DC Comics’ line in its Rebirth phase, you can be sure to count Deathstroke as one of those who has benefitted from this breath of creative fresh air.

Finally, the first collection will allow those who’ve trade waited, for whatever reason, to dive in and devour some of the best Deathstroke in too long of a time. Deathstroke the Terminator returns and this time his assassin’s eye is set on saving his daughter Rose a.k.a Ravager.

Slade Wilson will need all of the genetically enhanced strength, reflexes, healing, and intellect after a long thought dead ally resurfaces while on a mission in a war-torn African country.

Now, one of the most feared man on the entire planet will have to break his self-imposed rules of killing, betray those he’s considered trustworthy, piss off his most powerful enemy, and battle against his addiction to violence.

Will Deathstroke be able to conquer the most challenging gauntlet of his life and come through the other side with his daughter and honor having avoided being shattered?

Find out in Deathstroke Vol. 1: The Professional! This new thrilling chapter of DC’s greatest assassin comes to us from the legendary writer Christopher Priest and artist Carlo Pagulayan.

Graphic Spotlight: Animosity Vol. 1 – The Wake

A fun new take on the end of the world. Pets welcome!

Marguerite Bennett is stacking up quite the bibliography and buzz. With all the hubbub around her new Batwoman solo series, it’d be easy but unforgivable to forget the first collection of her series at Aftershock Comics: Animosity.

Bennett and artist Rafael de Latorre (Superzero) craft a really fun apocalyptic concept. We human beings should all be terrified if the animals of the world we’ve constructed gain the capacity to reason and communicate as we do. We cage them. We domesticate them. We experiment on them. What happens when the rats decide to break down the walls? What are consequences when your pet iguana can tell you what he really thinks of the things you do behind closed doors? How will you get to work if the birds decide to start making kamikaze dives through your car windshields? Get ready to find out!

The animals can talk, think, and they’ve decided to begin taking their revenge. How? That’s an answer you’ll have to search for in the book. One thing’s certain, they’re bringing chaos and the creators are self-aware of the possibilities of this concept. There’s definitely some fun to be found with the newfound form of consciousness and reasoning that the animals gain. And then the story finds its focus on Jesse, an eleven year-old girl, and her dog, Sandor, who proves that dogs may be mankind’s best friend. Sandor is devoted to Jesse and swears to protect her even as many of his species are drooling at the prospect of bloodying their jowls with their owners. One year after this awakening, Jesse and Sandor begin one of the craziest road trips since Preacher and Y: The Last Man to find Jesse’s half-brother, Adam, who is living in San Francisco and who could be the last bastion of safety for the duo.

Collecting the first four issues of the best-selling series, plus the special one-shot issue Animosity: The Rise. Read the book that, as the solicits from the publisher say, “EVERYONE is talking about.”

Graphic Spotlight – SNOTGIRL VOL. 1: GREEN HAIR DON’T CARE

Bryan Lee O’Malley‘s new series is #BuyMeNow

It’s finally here! Let’s face it, we’ve all kind of been spoiled with Bryan Lee O’Malley’s previous cult hits that include the never duplicated Scott Pilgrim series and his masterful OGN Seconds. Here’s a creator where we’re used to getting a big chunk of awesomeness at once but this time, O’Malley opted to do his first monthly series. At long last, the first volume if this #addictedtofabulous tale of Lottie Person is available in trade paperback form.

For those of you living in a superhero bubble, you’re probably wondering, “Who is Lottie Person?” That’s a rather complicated and, thus far, very fun question to answer. Lottie Person is an influential fashion blogger. She has a “[redacted] number of followers and is always on forefront of what’s hot and what’s not. As far as the digital world’s concerned, she’s the epitome of a fun-loving celebrity social media star. Every pic of her is fierce and fabulous. All of her [redacted] followers hang on her every post. Except the reality might be a little less glam-tastic. What the world doesn’t see is that Lottie suffers from ridiculously severe allergies. Which is what makes her the eponymous #Snotgirl. It’s a world of snot, blood, tears, and where nothing is exactly as it appears.

Mr. O’Malley’s brought on a newcomer for art duties in Leslie Hung. While some were at first a little disappointed that he wouldn’t be the one behind the pencils and inks, there’s no denying he’s picked a perfect collaborator to capture the complex and duplicitous world of Lottie Person.

Graphic Spotlight – WEIRD DETECTIVE: THE STARS ARE WRONG

Cthulu crime stalks the streets of New York in this cosmic horror mini-series!

There’s been a pattern, some might classify it as a plague, of crimes committed in the Big Apple that defy logic. They’re too weird and bizarre for the average detective to unravel without having to believe in the extraordinary. Fortunately, Detective Sebastian Greene isn’t your average detective. He’s fighting against these unspeakable terrors that lurk in the shadows from beyond space and time. The reason he can take on these beings who want to usher in the unimaginable evil, the Old Ones, is because he’s one of them. After all, who better to catch a monster than one of their own?

New York Time’s best-selling author, Fred Van Lente (Generation Zero, Conan the Avenger, Marvel Zombies), and artist Guiu Vilanova (Conan the Avenger) are on the case for Weird Detective, a Lovecraftian mystery tale!

It’s part cop procedural, part H.P. Lovecraft terror, and completely compelling. If you love mystery, sci-fi, horror, and classic pulp, then this weird tale is just what the coroner ordered. This collection has every issue of the mini-series that brings Fred Van Lente’s penchant for air-tight plots filled with unexpected turns back to darken your book shelves. Just remember this one thing: Buyer beware…

Val’s Toy Chest- New Year, New Toys!

I’d like to wish you guys a belated Happy New Year with this week’s column. Since it is a new year, there are new toys coming. Not a lot of information is out yet, but expect tons of toy news from the worlds of DC Comics, Marvel, and more when I attend Toy Fair next month. Definitely watch this space.

As far as this week goes, we got some new stuff from NECA the last couple of days. Firstly, the Batman Returns Mayor Penguin 1/4 scale action figure has arrived. Based on Danny Devito’s portrayal of the classic Batman villain, the Penguin features several points of articulation, a cloth coat and several movie accurate accessories. The Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman is the next figure due from the Batman Returns line and she should hopefully ship sometime this year. As her arrival gets closer I’ll let you know. The other neat item we got in is the Star Trek: The Next Generation Bat’leth Prop Replica from NECA. If the Klingons were your favorite aliens in the Trek universe, this awesome replica is for you. Whether you use it to spice up your Worf costume or hang it on your wall, NECA definitely hit a home run with this Trek piece.

Keeping in line with NECA, the toy company announced this week that they have acquired the rights to make merchandise and figures from the forthcoming Blade Runner 2049 film. NECA seems excited about it and will debut new figures next month at Toy Fair.  On the DC front, DC Collectibles finally announced that they are making Batgirl as she appeared on the original run of Batman: the Animated Series. While she mostly looks good, there are some issues with the length of her neck as well as her hair placement. DC has said they are at least working with the neck, we’ll see what happens when she finally comes out later this year.

Continuing on with DC Media representation, statue company Tweeterhead, which recently released an awesome Elvira coffee table book, just announced the first in a line of Wonder Woman maquettes. First up is a gorgeous representation of Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman as seen in the classic 1970s series. Only the unpainted sculpt has been shown off, so we’ll just have to wait and see what the final painted version looks like. I expect this piece to be popular with this year being a massive year for the Amazing Amazon.  If you remember the Yvonne Craig Batgirl piece, this was sculpted by the same artist.

Not much else going on this week, but there’s some cool books coming out including a Justice League of America special centered around Vixen, volume 7 of Mike Grell’s run of Green Arrowand Rebirth trades of Batman and AquamanThat’s about it for me this week. Catch you all next time!
