​Assassins, Special Powers and Middle America:  This Is No World

The premiere issue of No World is a big YES!
The story of No World begins with an elderly man sitting next to a mother and child at a mall.  He, and many other is the mall, gets a text and the story switches to breaking news of a mass murder in the mall.  In the middle of nowhere, Hank and Miya are workers at a coffee shop following the story and speculating why and how it happened when a stranger on a motorcycle stops in for tea.  She tells Miya she wants her for her special powers.  Hank threatens the stranger to leave when gunfire erupts.  Who is this stranger and what does she know?

This was a great starting issue for a new title.  It got the story started immediately and there was plenty of action to hold the reader’s attention.  This is the first time I’ve read Scott Lobdell’s work and I am already impressed.  There is the perfect balance of action, suspense, drama and mystery to last for six issues.  The comic is well-drawn and I am a fan of the style used by Jordan Gunderson.  The colors, courtesy of JUANCHOo fit the artwork perfectly and do a great job of reflecting the mood of not only the scene, but the story.  Jordan Gunderson and Peter Steigerwald designed a cover for each character and they are awesome works of art.  I cannot wait to read the rest of the series and learn more about them.
I am happy I discovered No World and Aspen Comics.  It was a fun read and was sort of reminiscent of X-Men with special powers, swordplay and gunfights.  I look forward to reading more of No World and other Aspen comics titles in the future.  No World  #1 is on comic book shelves now so don’t forget to visit your local comic shop to pick up a copy!

WARNER BROS. TELEVISION AND DC ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCE ALL-NEW LIVE-ACTION SERIES “TITANS,” FROM EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS AKIVA GOLDSMAN, GEOFF JOHNS, GREG BERLANTI AND SARAH SCHECHTER, TO DEBUT IN 2018

 

“YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS,” THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED THIRD SEASON OF WARNER BROS. ANIMATION’S “YOUNG JUSTICE,” ALSO TO BOW NEXT YEAR

 

Series Will Air Exclusively on Upcoming DC-Branded Direct-to-Consumer Digital Service

 

(April 25, 2017 – Burbank, CA) Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment today announced that executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are teaming up for the all-new live-action drama series “Titans,” which will debut in 2018. Additionally, Warner Bros. Animation’s “Young Justice: Outsiders,” the highly anticipated third season of the popular “Young Justice” series, is also ramping up for its first mission next year.

 

Both fan-driven series are in early stages of production and will air exclusively on a DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital service in 2018. Operated by Warner Bros. Digital Networks Group, the new digital service will deliver an immersive experience designed just for DC fans.

 

“Titans” follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. “Titans” is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.

 

“Titans” will be written by Akiva Goldsman (“Star Trek: Discovery,” “Underground”), Geoff Johns (President & Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment; “The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”). Goldsman, Johns, Berlanti and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”) are executive producers of the series from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

 

In “Young Justice: Outsiders,” the teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in an animated world of super-powers, Super-Villains and super secrets. In the highly anticipated new season, the team faces its greatest challenge yet as it takes on meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy. Equally praised by critics and viewers for its impressive visuals and rich storytelling, “Young Justice” reached more than 25 million unique viewers in each of its two seasons on Cartoon Network. This passionate fan support set the stage for the new third season.

 

Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!,” “Justice League Action”) is executive producer of “Young Justice.” Brandon Vietti (“Batman: Under the Red Hood,” “Superman Doomsday”) and Greg Weisman (“Star Wars Rebels,” “Gargoyles”) are producers of the series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Emmy Award winner Phil Bourassa (“Young Justice,” “Justice League Dark,” “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract”) serves as the series’ art director.

JOE SIMON AND JACK KIRBY’S FIGHTING AMERICAN SPRINGS BACK INTO ACTION WITH TITAN COMICS!

A legendary team-up with Titan Comics sees the Fighting American return – an event 50 years in the making!
Titan Comics are thrilled to announce the return of a true comic icon, FIGHTING AMERICAN ¬ – Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s legendary all-American hero is back kicking butt and taking names in this all-new epic in 2017!
First published in May 1954 and originally written and drawn by two of the greatest names in the history of comics, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Fighting American was the embodiment of the homegrown, god-fearing, patriotic, apple pie-eating American superhero. 
Where Simon and Kirby’s other patriotic hero, Captain America, socked it to the Nazis in World War II, Fighting American brought square-jawed justice to “the Commies” and villains such as Double Header, Hotsky Trotsky, and Round Robin! 
Throughout their long partnership, Simon and Kirby helped revolutionize the comics industry from ground-breaking adventure comics to pioneering romance titles, westerns, crime comics and of course superheroes – a genre they helped to shape and define for generations to come. 
With Fighting American, they brought a tongue-in-cheek irreverence to the world of two-fisted action and its mix of outlandish, satirical humor went on to establish Fighting American as a true American hero.
Hard times require hard heroes and in Titan Comics’ all-new series, written by Gordon Rennie (2000AD, Starship Troopers) with artwork by Duke Mighten (Judge Dredd), the comic picks up immediately after Simon and Kirby’s legendary 1954 series…
Keep watch for more announcements on Titan Comics’ Fighting American soon!

ANNOUNCING SHEA FONTANA TO WRITE WONDER WOMAN

ANNOUNCING SHEA FONTANA TO WRITE WONDER WOMAN

 

This summer, writer Shea Fontana (DC SUPER HERO GIRLS) will pen a five-issue story arc on DC’s main WONDER WOMAN bimonthly comic book series.

 

Fontana is no stranger to Wonder Woman having helped shape the DC Super Hero Girls universe, writing the original graphic novel and The New York Times bestseller DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: FINALS CRISIS and its subsequent installments, as well as the animated shorts and the first original animated movie DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: HERO OF THE YEAR. Now, Fontana is graduating to DC’s flagship WONDER WOMAN series.

 

“Having worked on DC Super Hero Girls for the last few years, I have a great sense of Wondy, a teenage Wonder Woman in a high school setting, and it’s an honor and an adrenaline rush to be writing her now ‘all grown up,’” explains Fontana. “Many of her core characteristics continue to remain routed in peace, justice and equality, but as an adult she’s seen a lot more war and tragedy, and is dealing with her world from a wiser, more experienced point of view.”  

 

In this arc, Fontana debuts a new villain into the DC Universe who seeks to prove that Amazon DNA could change the world and hunts to capture Wonder Woman, dead or alive. This will challenge Wonder Woman’s notion of strength and what it means to be a warrior.

 

Joining Fontana in July for the first two issues will be fan-favorite artist Mirka Andolfo (DC COMICS: BOMBSHELLS). “It’s a delight to be collaborating with Mirka who is bringing her stellar style to this series,” shares Fontana. “She has an incredible visual storytelling talent to create cinematic superhero action sequences while capturing the complexity of the characters’ emotions and maintaining a clear focus on the evolving relationships between characters.”

 

WONDER WOMAN #26-27 arrives in stores July 12th and 26th, respectively. Below, is a first-look at Jesus Merino’s cover for issue #26. Fans can also expect variant covers by Jenny Frison.

Hellchild: The Unholy review by Joe Grodensky


Hellchild The Unholy: Angelica Blackstone Goes Out Fighting!Hellchild gets in her last licks in the series finale!

In the last issue of Hellchild The Unholy, Angelica Blackstone confronted Ouroboros. He was getting the best of her but did not kill her. Instead, he offers her a place alongside him as a “god.” Angelica refuses but does kill Jezebel which leads her to question herself and the others to question whose side she is really on. At the same time, a war between the underdwellers and the NYPD is about to erupt and blood will flow on both sides.

In the finale, Angelica is in the midst of riots, monsters, death and destruction as the uprising is in full effect. While she refused Ouroboros’s offer, she does make him believe she has decided to join him. In the middle of the fight, Jezebel reappears which confirms what Ouroboros told Angelica about her. Just when Ouroboros thinks Angelica is going to do his bidding, she does something else. Has Hellchild chosen sides or has she done what was needed for her to survive the battle?

Pat Shand did an amazing job with this final issue. It was a fitting end not only for the series but Angelica. We really see her come full circle. It certainly leaves an opening for Angelica to reappear in another series, whether it be her own or as a guest character in another title. Renzo Rodriguez did a great job on the artwork and gave readers something to remember. The colors of Walter Baiamonte added to that memory and made the series vibrant and bloody. Ario Murti and Hedwin Zaldivar gave the final issue a fiery cover to send the series off right.

Hellchild: The Unholy was a fun, well-written and well-told story that I will miss. Angelica was relatable in certain ways. She had inner demons, aside from the fact she was considered a demon, which she constantly battled with. She wanted to do good but felt it was not getting her anywhere with anyone so she decided to do her thing her way. It interconnected very well with the Van Helsing series which makes Zenescope such a great comic book company. They have a connected universe which flows smoothly between titles and characters. Hellchild: The Unholy is on sale now so check out your local comic book shop today!

This is one of Zenescope’s best titles right now.  Lou Iovino and Joe Brusha have put together a fun, action-packed adventure title that is constantly moving and has a fast, but not too fast, pace.  Britney is an awesome character and the best part about this issue is it is set in London.  Renato Rei and Eduardo Garcia did a great job drawing London in fantastic, and accurate, detail.  The art was brought to life in stunning fashion by the colors of Hedwin Zaldivar, Grostieta and Jorge Cortes.  The cover art of Britney set against the backdrop of Big Ben is one of the series’ best covers.  Riviero and Grostieta did a great job on it.

They say the only guaranteed things in life are death and taxes.  They forgot to add Zenescope publishing great titles to the list.  Whether it’s Van Helsing vs…, Spirit Hunters, Robyn Hood or one of many others, you will find a great comic book to read under the Zenescope label.  The best part is, these titles are only a click away at Zenescope.com.  Red Agent: The Human Order is out now so be sure to stop by your local comic book shop and pick up a copy today!
