Valiant Entertainment

Cover Price: $3.99

I don’t know what I was expecting from Ninjak #1, but I was not expecting what I read in this first issue. It just goes to show that when a publisher puts some quality talent on a title with a great concept, the result is amazing comics!

Valiant Comics decided to put writer Matt Kindt on this book, and the result is nothing short of fantastic. When you have a concept that’s a mash-up of a James Bond-type spy and a super ninja, and you put a writer who’s got the chops of Matt Kindt, again, fantastic things happen.

Comic Review: Bill & Ted’s Most Triumphant Return #1

Bill & Ted’s Most Triumphant Return #1
Written by Brian Lynch
Pencils by Jerry Gaylord
Inks by Jerry & Penelope Gaylord
Colors by Whitney Cogar
Letters by Jim Campbell
Covers by Felipe Smith, Rob Guillory, Goni Montes, Trevor Hairsine & Jordan Boyd, Chuck BB, Joe Eisma, and Brandon Lamb
Boom! Studios
Release Date: March 11, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Bill & Ted’s Triumphant Return #1 is a comic that I’ve been waiting for since 1991! When we last left Bill and Ted, they had just won the San Dimas Battle of the Bands, and were on their way to musical greatness and changing the world as we know it. And, they lived happily ever after, right? Not so fast….

BOOM! Studios got writer Brian Lynch to tackle the, well, triumphant return of Bill and Ted, and they couldn’t have made a better choice. This comic truly captures the spirit of the Bill & Ted films, and moves the story along a natural path to what would happen next. And Lynch managed to find a logical place for all the characters that we loved in the movie: The good robot versions of Bill and Ted, The Princesses, Station, The Grim Reaper, and everyone else. With a cast so big, you’d think that someone would get lost in the shuffle, but thankfully, none of them do.

Divinity #1
Written by Matt Kindt
Pencils by Trevor Hairsine
Inks by Ryan Winn
Colors by David Baron
Letters by Dave Lanphear
Covers by Jelena Kevic Djurdjevic, Tom Muller, Tom Muller and Trevor Hairsine, and Lewis LaRosa with Brian Reber
Valiant Entertainment

Cover Price: $3.99

Alternative history has always fascinated me, mainly because our past is full of pivotal points in time. If we were to alter a single incident, what else would change? Similarly, time travel offers the exact same scenarios unless you are among those who believe that fate is decreed and cannot be changed. The only reason I mention this is because Divinity #1 works on the premise that during the Cold War, the Soviets were far more advanced than we Americans were. But as oftentimes happens, fledgling science has repercussions. Which leads us to our story…

DC Comics Introduces National Comics To Debut In July
  |  

DC Comics announced on Monday that it would be introducing a new done-in-one brand named National Comics to explore single characters within the DC universe.

This new series of one shots will focus on four announced characters that exist within the “New 52” universe, but do not have a complete home or place, so far. The titles announced are Eternity, Madame X, Rose and Thorn, and Looker. Each comic centers around previously explored characters in the old, even pre-Crisis DC Universe. Which makes all of this very interesting. We’ll take a look at the idea of National Comics as a brand after we take a look at each series and the creators that are involved. Ready to go?
