New Comic Book Day including Euthanauts and 2000AD Sci-Fi Special
It’s Wednesday so that must mean it’s new comic book day so here are Geeky Brummie’s picks for the comics available from your local comic book store including the first issue of Euthanauts.
Publisher: Black Crown
Issue No.: 1
Creative Team: Tini Howard and Nick Robles. Cover by Nick Robles. Variant Cover by Lindsey Way.
Black Crown have been putting out some great books and this looks likely to continue that trend.
Death is like outer space-a seemingly unknowable, terrifying blackness that yields beautiful discoveries and truths-if only you’ve got the right kind of rocketship. Thalia Rosewood has had a lifelong obsession with death, keeping her from living her life to the fullest. Mercy Wolfe has a brain tumor the size of a billiard ball, and a need for a new recruit before her next journey begins. Inigo Hanover is a reluctant tether to the world beyond, seeking to continue a cycle that exploration would halt. Go toward the light. Then go beyond. EUTHANAUTS.
Title: The Life of Captain Marvel
Issue No.: 1
Creative Team: Margaret Stohl and Carlos Pacheco. Cover by Julian Totino Tedesco. Variant Covers By Artgerm, Joe Questada, Fiona Staples and Sana Takeda.
Captain Marvel is heading for big things on the big screen next year so now is the perfect time to discover the most powerful Avenger.
Carol Danvers was just a girl from the Boston suburbs who loved science and the Red Sox until a chance encounter with a Kree hero gave her incredible super-powers. Now, she’s a leader in the Avengers and the commander of Alpha Flight. But what if there were more to the story? When crippling anxiety attacks put her on the sidelines in the middle of a fight, Carol finds herself reliving memories of a life she thought was far behind her. You can’t outrun where you’re from – and sometimes, you HAVE to go home again. But there are skeletons in Captain Marvel’s closet – and what she discovers will change her entire world. Written by best-selling author Margaret Stohl and drawn by fan-favorite comics veteran Carlos Pacheco, this is the true origin of Captain Marvel.
Title: Archie Meets Batman ’66
Publisher: Archie Comics/DC
Issue No.: 1
Creative Team: Jeff Parker, Michael Moreci, Dan Parent and J. Bone. Cover by Michael and Laura Allred. Variant Covers By Derek Charm, Francesco Francavilla, Sandy Jarrell, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Dan Parent, J. Bone, Ty Templeton, Michael Allred and Laura Allred.
Had enough of dark and gritty heroics? The Batman ’66 comics have been pure unadulterated joy and now he’s heading for his most epic team-up ever.
Two iconic comic book characters meet up for the FIRST TIME in this historic crossover mini-series! A battle in Gotham City extends its reach into Riverdale – with Mr. Lodge becoming enemy #1 of the dynamic duo! Now it’s up to Veronica to recruit some help and place a call… to the Batcave!
Title: Future Quest Presents
Issue No.: 12
Creative Team: Jeff Parker and Mauricet. Cover by Mauricet. Variant Covers By Carlos D’anda.
I’ve really been enjoying the Future Quest series at DC and now they’re bring back one of my favourite characters,Frankenstein Jr.
We saved the biggest for last: a long-abandoned gene-splicing project created by Dr. Zin has been reactivated, and even the F.E.A.R. agents who brought it back to life can no longer stop it! Who can? How about Buzz Conroy and Frankenstein Jr.!
We also recommend the following 2000AD Special released this week –
Title: 2000AD Sci-Fi Summer Special 2018
