New Comic Book Day – February 1st, 2017



Blood Blister #1 – Phil Hester & Eric Layton


Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern #1 – Robbie Thompson, Justin Jordan & Barnaby Bagenda

  • While crossovers are hardly new (and seem to be all the rage at the moment) I’m cautiously optimistic about this.  While The Planet of the Apes has some sci-fi elements, Green Lantern is deep in the sci-fi waters.  However, given that Boom! Studios and DC had a remarkable 2016, I’ll give this a chance.  –Max


Baltimore: The Red Kingdom #1 – Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden & Peter Bergting

Will Save The Galaxy For Food (Graphic Novel) – Yahtzee Croshaw


Aquaman #16 (New Arc) – Dan Abnett & Brad Walker, Andrew Hennessy

Batman #16 (New Arc) – Tom King & David Finch

Harley Quinn #13 (Arc Conclusion) – Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti & John Timms

Nightwing #14 (Arc Conclusion) – Tim Seeley & Marcus To

  • In my opinion, this current arc has been the best since Nightwing relaunched, with Tim Seeley bringing Dick back to Bludhaven and narrowing the focus of the story away from all the mysterious organizations. Marcus To’s artwork has also been a highlight, bringing a different style to the book that still fits well with Seeley’s often-humorous script. I can’t wait to see how this arc ends and see what’s next for the character. I -John D.

Superman #16 (Arc Conclusion) – Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason & Doug Mahnke, Jorge Jimenez

  • The bad— a Tomasi/Gleason/Mahnke Superman arc is over.  The great— a new one is about to unfurl.  –Max


Electric Sublime #4 (of 4) – W. Maxwell Price & Martin Morazzo

Jem & The Holograms ANNUAL – Kelly Thompson & M. Victoria Robado, Maria Jose Barros, Savanna Ganucheau, Katarzyna Witerscheim


Paper Girls #11 (New Arc) – Brian K. Vaughan & Cliff Chiang

  • I can’t tell you exactly where we left everyone when Paper Girls #10 ended because it seems like so long ago now, but the beauty of this book is how easily it snaps readers right back into the story. Brian K. Vaughan knows what he’s doing with this series despite all the multiple timelines and strange inhabitants throughout the book thus far, and of course Cliff Chiang’s artwork has only gotten better. You definitely don’t want to pick this one up if you haven’t read the others but at a measly two trades in, it’s easy to catch up and worth it to do so. -John D.

Planetoid Praxis #1 – Ken Garing


Bullseye #1 – Ed Brisson, Marv Wolfman & Guillermo Sanna, Alec Morgan

Karnak #6 – Warren Ellis & Gerardo Zaffino

Monsters Unleashed #2 – Cullen Bunn & Greg Land

Star Wars: DARTH MAUL #1 – Cullen Bunn &  Luke Ross


Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #1 – Dan Watters, Alex Paknadel & Jose Holder
