The Magicians #1
Created by Lev Grossman
Written by Lilah Sturges
Art by Pius Bak
Colors by Gabriel Cassata
Letters by Mike Fiorentino
Covers by Qistina Khalidah, Alexa Sharpe
Archaia Entertainment
Release Date: November 6, 2019
Cover Price: $3.99

Lev Grossman made my year when he wrote The Magicians. But he made my millennium when he continued the series and made it a trilogy. Syfy went a step further and turned it into a (not so accurate) television series that is still ongoing. And a few months ago I reviewed The Magicians: Alice’s Story. I therefore felt that I should alert any and all fans of the franchise to The Magicians #1, the first comic in a five-part mini-series.

Once & Future #1
Written by Kieron Gillen
Art by Dan Mora
Colors by Tamra Bonvillain
Letters by Ed Dukeshire
Cover by Dan Mora
Boom! Studios
Release Date: August 14, 2019
Cover Price: $3.99

A modern take on an Arthurian legend? Abso-freaking-lutely! I grew up reading everything I could about Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Many authors, many tales, but the message always bled through as being simultaneously heroic and tragic.

But what if things were not always so cut and dry? What then? Perhaps Once & Future #1 will be a pleasant change from the norm.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Vol. 1: High School Is Hell
Created by Joss Whedon
Written by Jordie Bellaire
Art by Dan Mora
Colors by Raul Angulo
Letters by Ed Dukeshire
Cover by Matthew Taylor
Boom! Studios
Release Date: May 29, 2019
Cover Price: $14.99

With all the reboots that happen in the movie industry, you would think that people would eventually rebel against all the rehashing. But then a gem like this one comes along and renews everyone’s faith in the concept of re-imagining.

Joss Whedon created one of the most dynamic characters to ever grace the page or screen, this was enhanced through television, film, comics, and books. These all built upon one another, creating what is essentially known as the Buffyverse. BOOM! Studios has rebooted this and given it a more modern update for today’s fans. And with that, I present to you a short spotlight on Buffy The Vampire Slayer Vol. 1: High School Is Hell!

Letters by Ed Dukeshire
Cover by Lee Garbett
Boom! Studios
Release Date: May 1, 2019
Cover Price: $14.99

We all know that drugs can kill. But what if they were made from the dead? Because that is straight up what Bone Parish: Volume 1 is about from the get go.

Suppose you could live as a celebrity, experiencing the feelings they felt, all for the low, low price of your moral compass. But there are far worse things than simply robbing the dead of their bones to make drugs. In fact, those far worse things have just started to take notice.

Covers by Matthew Taylor, Kevin Wada, Royal Dunlap, Becca Carey, Jen Bartel, Miguel Mercado, Kaiti Infante
Boom! Studios
Release Date: January 23, 2019
Cover Price: $3.99

It seems only fitting that I should make this comic my first review of 2019. I have been absent due to a new job that was far more than I could have anticipated but I wanted to make my comeback this week and start writing again. To that point, Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 is the perfect vehicle for this as it is also a reboot of epic proportions!

I haven’t written anything about Buffy Summers since 2011, so I would definitely say it is about time. So without any further jabbering on my part, let me get to it!

Judas
Paperback | Kindle
Created and written by Jeff Loveness
Art and cover by Jakub Rebelka
Letters by Colin Bell
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: September 4, 2018

I recently had the pleasure of reading the new graphic novel Judas. I was curious what sort of spin this comic would take, but was astounded when I actually did get to read it in its entirety. Thought-provoking, emotional, complicated. Those are probably the most apt words I could use to describe this release. Curious? Well then, read on, friends!

Letters by Jim Campbell
Cover by Jae Lee, June Chung, Andre De Freitas
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: July 19, 2017

Sisters of Sorrow #1 is possibly one of the most violent comics I have read in months. So obviously I loved it from start to finish, of course. You know that saying that starts with “Hell hath no fury…” and has been around longer than we can remember? Yeah, it’s not wrong and this comic is a perfect reflection of that same righteous anger.

Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #2 (of 6)
Written by Victor LaValle
Art by Dietrich Smith
Colors by Joana Lafuente
Letters by Jim Campbell
Cover by Micaela Dawn
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: June 21, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I seldom like modern twists on what I would consider a classical piece of literature, even when I’m not a huge fan of the original work. There is something almost perverse about modifying something that old. However, I will be the first to admit that sometimes what I think is going to be a modification or a reboot is instead an invigorating chapter or work unto itself. Case in point, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #2 is a spectacular sequence of events that do not in any way tarnish Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Never would I have thought this would entrance me so.
