New Comic Book Day – November 2nd, 2016



Giant Days #20 – John Allison & Max Sarin & Liz Fleming


Muhammad Ali Original Graphic Novel – Sybille Titeux & Amazing Amaziene


stl023291Catwoman ELECTION NIGHT #1 – Meredith Finch & Mark Russell and Ben Caldwell

  • I don’t have a choice but to read this.  At this time next week, we will know who our next president will be.  This should be a doozy for the politically-inclined.  -Max

Superman #10 – Peter J. Tomasi & Patrick Gleason

  • Just take a look at that cover.  What’s not to be excited about?  First Tomasi and Gleason write a terrific run on Batman and Robin.  Now, they are weaving a fantastic tale of Superman and his son, Jon.  Now the two father-and-son tandems are coming to blows?  Count me in.  Normally, I’d be pulling for Batman.  But after staying with Jon for nine issues, my allegiance is up for grabs.  -Max
  • I agree with Max, count me in. Super Sons was one of the titles I was most excited for and now we know Tomasi is writing it, makes me even more excited for this issue. This should be fun. -Lorna


TRANSFORMERS: Til All Are One – REVOLUTION #1 – Mairghread Scott & Naoto Tsushima


Bitch Planet #9 – Kelly Sue DeConnick & Valentine De Landro

  • I shouldn’t have to say anything other than you should already be reading this comic!! – Kelsey
  • What Kelsey said!!!–Bob

Mayday #1 – Alex De Campi & Blond

  • When I read this solicitation I instantly thought of the tv show ‘The Americans’ and that alone was enough for me to check this out. I love a good spy tale, and a Russian Cold War spy tale well that’s worth checking out four issue mini series. – Lorna

Wicked + Divine #23 – Kieron Gillen & Kevin Wada


Avengers #1 – Mark Waid & Mike Del Mundo

Foolkiller #1 – Max Bemis & Dalibor Talajic

Occupy Avengers #1 – David Walker & Carlos Pacheco

  • David Walker has been doing excellent work tackling important sociopolitical issues on other Marvel books (Nighthawk, Powerman & Iron Fist). I’m eager to see what he does with this book. – Vivek

Scarlet Witch #12– James Robinson & Annapaola Martello

    >  Throughout this run, James Robinson has restored the heroic Wanda Maximoff to the MU    firmament as she acts on behalf of others, and over these last few issues, she’s begun a quest to uncover the mysteries of her own past, and it’s been glorious.–Bob

The Unworthy Thor #1 – Jason Aaron & Olivier Coipel

  • Um, angsty Thor looking to reclaim his worthiness? Another Mjolnir up for grabs? Count me in! Really hope this doesn’t disappoint – I have been thoroughly (haha) enjoying Jane Foster’s take on the icon. High hopes! – Kelsey
