Collapser #NCBD 17th July 2019



New Comic Book Day with Collapser.

Time to pick up some new comics from Worlds Apart Birmingham (formerly Nostalgia & Comics). These are Geeky Brummie’s picks of the comics available today from your local comic book store including Collapser & Silver Surfer: Black.


Title: Collapser

Publisher: DC’s Young Animal

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team: Shaun Simon & Mikey Way – Writers : Ilias Kyriazis : Artist & Cover Artist : Cris Peter – Colorist : Nick Derington – Variant Cover Artist

As an imprint DC’s Young Animal has been putting out some great books. That trend looks to continue with Collapser the story of nurse/DJ Liam James who has a black hole in the middle of his chest. The book features some amazing looking art from Ilias Kyriazis and story by Shaun Simon & Mikey Way (brother of Young Animals guardian Gerrard). This book ticks all the boxes for me and I’m excited to see where it goes. 

From the Publisher:

“There’s a voice in the head of Liam James questioning everything he does—from his job at the nursing home to keeping his relationship with his girlfriend afloat. Liam suffers from anxiety, and the only thing that quiets it is music, which makes a weekly DJ gig his one saving grace. But Liam’s life changes forever when he receives a black hole in the mail (yes, you read that right), one that takes up residence in his chest, grants him insane superpowers, turns him into a celebrity and draws him into a cosmic conflict beyond his wildest imagination. Where did this black hole come from? Why Liam? Is power the cure? Or will superstardom turn Liam into a black hole himself? Find out in COLLAPSER, a superhero story that could only come from DC’s Young Animal!


Title: Silver Surfer: Black

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Issue No.: 2

Creative Team: Donny Cates – Writer : Tradd Moore – Artist & Cover Artist : Dave Stewart – Colorist : Marcos Martin & Ron Lim – Variant Cover Artists

Issue one of Silver Surfer: Black was gorgeous. Tradd Moore knocked it out of the park. That it was coupled with a really great story by Donny Cates made this book soar. This is how the Silver Surfer should be done. I highly recommend you pick this one up. Look out for a stunning variant cover by Marcos Martin.

From the Publisher:

“• Marooned across the cosmos!

• The Surfer will have to risk everything, to beat back the void that threatens to swallow the galaxy whole…

• …including his very soul!
