Doomsday Kingdom #1 Review

After the long wait, the physical release of the first issue of Doomsday Kingdom has finally came. Youtube personality and comic writer Ronny Haze has been working on this title along with artist James Milne for a few years now and their dream came to reality with this issue. Ronny Haze hosts a channel called Make A Path Presents where he covers The Walking Dead (the comic series and the TV adaptation), Fear The Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones and much more. There are not many Youtubers out there that hosts a channel and also creates a comic so you are getting a huge bag of content on his channel.

I have issue #1 of Doomsday Kingdom and here is my review on the first issue.

First i would like to say that the first 3 pages set the tone for how the rest of the issue will be. The first page, the main character has an arrow that is already pierced through his wrist taken out. But next, we get flashback scenes leading up to what happened on the first and last page and not too many comics begin their series with a flashback scene so i liked it. From there onwards, the main character travels with a prisoner and we get a story between those two along with what happened between those two and why the main character tied him to the feeding post for the zombies (which are named creeps in this comic) to devour him alive.

After that, the main character goes to a house that is trapped with a few zombies inside but it was a distraction as the other group attacked him with arrows. As the main character takes down the zombies, the enemies continue their assault and we finally know how he got the arrow on his wrist.

Another character wearing riot gear mixed with camouflage comes to the main character’s rescue as he killed the enemies that attacked him. At the end of the issue, the man who saved the main character asks him “The Rider. WHO ARE YOU?” as this ending left myself wanting to know more behind the character and the story.

Overall, i love this issue. This felt very different than the normal post-zombie outbreak world. Right from the beginning, we have been hinted that the world has been like this for many years and that the characters were very accustomed to everything that was going on. This issue is jam packed with action from start to finish and it has me excited for the next issue. I also did like how the suspense was built on how the first page happened as it did not felt forced or rushed at all. The Artwork is also great as the colors and shades and shadows blended very well in each page. I recommend for everyone to read this because it is a completely different take on the zombie genre. Doomsday Kingdom releases digitally first before the print version releases.

Ronny Haze is on twitter @RONNYHAZE and you can find him on YouTube as Make A Path Presents. I have also interviewed him on The Wrestling Court Episode 85 which you can listen to right here.

Sean Murphy’s BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT Arrives October 4 

Sean Murphy’s BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT Arrives October 4

 

In a world where Batman has gone too far, the Joker must save Gotham City.

 

Superstar writer and artist Sean Gordon Murphy (PUNK ROCK JESUS, THE WAKE) brings you his tale of a twisted Gotham in a seven-issue miniseries with a massive cast of heroes and villains. BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT is told on an epic scale, but at the heart of it all is the tragic story of a hero and a villain, The Batman and The Joker. The question is, which one is the hero and which one is the villain…?

 

The Joker’s been called a maniac, a killer, and the “Clown Prince of Crime” but “white knight”? Never. Until now…

 

“We know Joker’s a genius, we know he’s relentless, and we know he can play the crowd, so why not make him a politician?” said Murphy. “Why not strip away the psychosis (the thing that’s holding him back) and let him challenge Batman unimpeded? And to make it even scarier, what if he did it legally and without breaking any rules, so that Batman couldn’t stop him?”

 

Set in a world where the Joker is cured of his insanity and homicidal tendencies, The Joker, now known as “Jack,” sets about trying to right his wrongs. First by reconciling with Harley Quinn and then by trying to save Gotham city from the one person who he thinks is truly Gotham’s greatest villain—the Batman.

 

“Seeing Gotham for the first time with clear eyes, his psychosis now cured, he starts to understand the absurdity of vigilantism and how Batman’s actions are only contributing to Gotham’s endless crime cycle,” said Murphy. “Joker sets out to beat Batman by becoming the White Knight that Gotham really needs.”

 

BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT #1, written and illustrated by Sean Murphy, arrives on October 4. Cover artwork by Murphy with color by Matt Hollingsworth.

 

Head on over to WIRED for more from Sean Murphy about BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT!

GOTHAM CITY MEETS RIVERDALE IN NEWCOMIC BOOK CROSSOVER

GOTHAM CITY MEETS RIVERDALE IN NEW

COMIC BOOK CROSSOVER

 

DC Entertainment and Archie Comics are proud to present the adventure of a lifetime with HARLEY & IVY MEET BETTY & VERONICA. Their hijinks are brought to you by the real-life team-up of Paul Dini (HARLEY QUINN) and Marc Andreyko (WONDER WOMAN ’77), with art by Laura Braga (DC BOMBSHELLS). It all starts this October as these teams of best gal pals cross paths between Gotham and Riverdale!

 

“It’s the sort of offer you scream out ‘YES!’ to before your eyes reach the middle of the email,” said Dini. “I’ve always wanted the chance to play in Riverdale, and to help Harley and Ivy invade it is a dream come true.  Marc’s a great talent and a good friend. Writing this series with him has been like sitting on the lawn during summer vacation and reading a big pile of DC and Archie comics.  Except we have to stay indoors and type a lot.”

 

“It’s going to be a blast to bring these amazing ladies together in this once-in-a-lifetime crossover,” said Braga. “Each character is different and special. While Harley is one of my favorite characters ever, Betty and Veronica are giving her a run for her money! I love all these ladies, and this book is going to be non-stop fun. ”

 

“When I got the call for this, I was in disbelief!” said Andreyko. “Getting to co-write with Paul on a series bringing four of the most iconic ladies in comics together under one roof for the first time? This must be what winning the lottery feels like! I cannot wait for readers to see what mischief Paul, Laura and I have dreamed up!”

 

HARLEY & IVY MEET BETTY & VERONICAstarts with a plan for free college tuition for all Riverdale residents. The town just needs to build a new campus by draining the wetlands that lie between Riverdale and Gotham City.

 

The only snag? A certain botany-obsessed super-villain.

 

When Poison Ivy enlists her bestie Harley to kidnap both Veronica Lodge, daughter of Riverdale’s most important citizen, and her friend Betty, she’s counting on some assistance—and mayhem. Are these two teams of BFF’s headed for disaster?

 

“Betty and Veronica are the most iconic friends in comic book history, and now, thanks in no small part to the success of the Riverdale TV show, in pop culture,” said Archie Comics Publisher/CEO Jon Goldwater. “It made tons of sense to have them crossover with DC’s own female powerhouses, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. What you’ll get is a fun story that honors the history of both pairs and adds to it – which is what all great crossovers do. We’re excited by this partnership and we can’t wait for the fans to see what Paul, Marc and Laura cook up.”

  

“Two of comics’ coolest villains paired with two of comics’ hottest icons are what cross-publisher team-ups were made for,” said DC Entertainment Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras.

 

HARLEY & IVY MEET BETTY & VERONICA #1 is on sale October 4, 2017. Cover is by Amanda Conner (shown) and variant cover will be by Adam Hugh

AN ANIMATED NEW COMIC FOR HARLEY QUINN AND HER BEST PAL…BATMAN

AN ANIMATED NEW COMIC FOR HARLEY QUINN AND HER BEST PAL…BATMAN

The digital series includes a prequel and sequel to the animated film this August

 

It’s the team-up we’ve been dreaming of as the cute psychopath Harley Quinn joins the brooding Dark Knight for a brand-new Digital First comic series, HARLEY QUINN AND BATMAN. The series, from Batman: The Animated Series writer Ty Templeton and artist Rick Burchett, is an exciting new five-chapter prequel adventure to the Batman And Harley Quinn animated film coming out this August from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.  

 

“Batman and Harley, Joker and Ivy, Nightwing and Catwoman. Is there a better cast of characters anywhere in fiction?” says Templeton. “I spent some of the best years of my career working with these icons and could not be happier to be returning to Gotham City and their adventures. And to top it off, I get to work with the incomparable Rick Burchett again! Pinch me, I’m dreaming. We’re getting the band back together!”

 

Harley Quinn is a legend in her own mind, so when she realizes the Joker thinks of her as a sidekick, she takes her revenge. Harley’s now faced with a hard decision to break out as her own super-villain, and she’s willing to go for it!

 

“I spent quite a few years working with these characters in this art style,” says Burchett. “It’s like visiting old friends. For me, though, the best part is having the opportunity to work with Ty Templeton again. It’s been way too long.”

 

The digital series will launch Monday, July 31, with the five chapters being released bi-weekly.

 

But wait! Where’s the sequel?

 

Beginning in October, seven sequel chapters will be released digitally each week, and to make it extra-crazy, we flipped the names! BATMAN AND HARLEY QUINN is a collection of stories tied to the events of the film. These chapters will feature stories and art by Jeff Parker, Craig Rousseau, Luciano Vecchio, Amanda Deibert, David Hahn, Dario Brizuela, Matthew Dow Smith, Sandy Jarrell, Ty Templeton and more.

 

All 12 chapters will be collected in trade paperback in summer 2018. Digital chapters will be available for download beginning July 31 via the DC Comics App, readdcentertainment.com, iBooks, comiXology.com, Google Play, Kindle Store and Nook Store.

Fighting American To Debut On Joe Simon’s Birthday With Terry Dodson Cover!

To celebrate Simon & Kirby’s legendary patriot hero, Fighting American, 

​returning to comics

​ –

 Titan Comics’ new series debuts on October 11, 2017 – the date of Joe Simon’s birthday, and also during the Kirby centennial year – with an incredible cover by fan-favorite artists, Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson


Hard times require hard heroes and in Titan Comics’ all-new series, written by Gordon Rennie (2000ADStarship Troopers) with artwork by Duke Mighten (Judge Dredd), the original patriot superhero returns with faithful sidekick, Speedboy! 


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.

Dark Horse Books to Publish Bestselling Author Chuck Palahniuk’s First Coloring Book Novella Announcing LEGACY: AN OFF-COLOR NOVELLA FOR YOU TO COLOR

Illustrated by Mike Norton and Steve Morris

 

June 19, 2017) This fall Dark Horse Books is publishing bestselling author Chuck Palahniuk’s novella, Legacy: An Off-Color Novella for You to Color, which features colorable illustrations by Steve Morris and Mike Norton. The novella is a dark but colorful fable with aspiring immortals, an amoral banker and his despicable family, a stalker and the kind of extreme storytelling and biting social satire that the readers of Fight Club, Choke and Survivor have come to expect. The new book follows Dark Horse’s release of Palahniuk’s first ever coloring book for adults and most recent short story collection, Bait: Off-Color Stories for You to Color, and the hardcover release of the #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel Fight Club 2 graphic novel last year. Legacy is Palahniuk’s first long form prose publication since the release of his novel Beautiful You in 2014.

 

“Imagine if Joseph Campbell produced a coloring book,” said Palahniuk. “Legacy will be one part Art Bell, one part Carl Jung, part George Noory, and right brain from cover to cover.  All cultures have their myths about attaining immortality, but Dark Horse, Mike, Steve and I are the first to slap such high culture anthropology into the low culture world of coloring.”

 

Legacy: An Off-Color Novella for You to Color is a 8.5 x 11 inch hardcover album, with uncoated and white interior paper stock, accompanied by a cover illustrated and colored by Duncan Fegredo and designed by Nate Piekos. Fegredo is arguably best known for his art on several acclaimed Hellboy graphic novels, including Hellboy: Darkness Calls (the first storyline to not feature art by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola) and Hellboy: The Wild Hunt, featuring the fan favorite Blood Queen storyline.

 

Two acclaimed artists provides colorable illustrations throughout the book: Mike Norton, the creator of the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning webcomic Battlepug, and Steve Morris, who’s best known for his art for Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic books. Legacy: An Off-Color Novella for You to Color goes on sale from Dark Horse Books in both comic book stores and bookstores on November 7, 2017.

 

“Each reader will bring his or her final details to the story,” said Palahniuk. “When colored, each book will be a one-of piece of collaborative art worth keeping for the ages!”
