New Comic Book Day – November 9th, 2016



Black #2 – Kwanza Osajyefo & Jamal Igle

The Forevers #2 – Curt Pires & Eric Pfeiffer


stl023042-1Mega Princess #1 – Kelly Thompson & Brianne Drouhard

  • A princess who has all the power of other princess? I am left to wonder what exactly these powers are. I trust Kelly Thompson to write a fun tale, and there’s a Pegasus with a helmet and attitude, how could I not check this comic out. – Lorna.

Namesake #1 – Steve Orlando & Jakub Rebulka

WWE: Then, Now, Forever #1 – Dennis Hopeless, Ross Thibodeaux, Rob Schamberger, Derek Fridolfs, Rob Guillory,  & Daniel Bayliss

  • I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it on this list but the WWE is getting its own comic series once again. Last time this happened was ages ago–so long, in fact, that they were still known as the WWF–but something tells me this tag-team of the WWE and Boom Studios is going to be a perfect fit. Not to mention there’s some A-list talent attached to this oversized first issue, which means even if you’re not a wrestling fan, the quality inside this book might be enough to pick it up and learn to love the squared circle.–John D.


Action Comics #967 – Dan Jurgens & Tyler Kirkham 

Clean Room #13 – Gail Simone & Jon Davis-Hunt stl020227

The Flash #10 – Joshua Williamson and Felipe Watanabe & Kirk Albert

Mother Panic #1 – Jody Houser & Tommy Lee Edwards

  • The previews have me intrigued; the outstanding Young Animal lineup has me a purchaser. – Miguel

Wonder Woman #10 – Greg Rucka & Nicola Scott

  • I know it hasn’t been that long since we’ve returned to Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott’s wonderful “Year One” storyline, but it sure has felt like an eternity. While I’m certainly enraptured by the story that Rucka is telling in the current timeline, I can’t deny the fact that Nicola Scott’s art is so tremendous in this book that I look forward to returning to it every time a new issue comes out. Unfortunately Scott is not long for this project, so let’s enjoy each and every panel she draws while we can.–John D.
  • Per the solicitation, this issue will feature “Wonder Woman revealed to the world for the first time”, which in many ways echoes my feelings about this entire run by Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott, as they have (along with Renae De Liz’s marvelous “Legend of…” series) brought to readers weaned on the New 52  a more-classic Amazon Princess!–Bob


stl024458Batman/TMNT Adventures #1 – Matthew K. Manning & Jon Sommariva

  • There are certain crossovers you dream about when you are a kid playing with action figures in your bedroom, yet you would never dare believe them to come true. This, this right here is the pinnacle of those childhood dreams. While their first pairing was enjoyable, it’s grim nature held it back for me. This though is where I truly expect these characters to shine. I’m ready. – Miguel


Violent Love #1 – Frank J. Barbiere & Victor Santos stl024104


Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #1 – Gerry Conway & Ryan Stegman

Black Panther: World of Wakanda #1 – Ta-Nehisi Coates, Roxane Gay, and Yona Harvey & Alitha Martinez

  • Marvel scored two more wins when they recruited phenomenal women Roxane Gay and Yona Harvey to join Ta-Nehisi Coates on a Black Panther spin-off book. Super down for this. – Joey

stl023862Captain America: Steve Rogers #7 – Nick Spencer & Jesus Saiz

Invincible Iron Man #1 NOW – Brian Michael Bendis & Stefano Caselli

Power Man & Iron Fist #10 – David F. Walker & Sanford Greene

 >  Although Messrs. Walker & Greene delivered a great mini-arc surrounding the “event”, I”m thrilled that this wonderful series has returned to be able to tell its own story with this issue!–Bob
