Black Cloud #1

Mar 22, 2017

Black Cloud is well on its way to being one of the best series of 2017. In a market flooded with post-apocalyptic nightmares and constantly changing iterations of Superhero lore, this dark fantasy adventure is a welcome change of pace. The story is very fast-paced, but with the worlds evolving and interacting, there are no limits to where this story can go.

Magdalena (2017) #1

Mar 23, 2017

Overall, The Magdalena #1 definitely has what it takes to revive this character and take her to new levels that meet the demands of modern comics. Hopefully, this creative team can take an established story, mix it up with a gothic vibe and a dash of Buffy, and give us a new ongoing series worth remembering.

X-O Manowar (2017) #1

Mar 24, 2017

X-O Manowar has not been on the new comics radar for a while. He has his fans, but the book was often limited to pre-existing readers. Valiant put a lot of work into bringing this series into the modern age and making a clean jumping-on point for new readers. As someone who has not finished the last series, this was accomplished well, and the new introduction isn't missing anything. It feels like a new book, but is still true enough to the original character and universe that returning fans won't be disappointed, either. If you are interested in beautifully written and illustrated battle scenes, a compelling story with a powerful hero, and rad 80's fantasy vibes, pick up X-O Manowar #1. You won't be disappointed by this first issue, and I expect the rest of the series to follow suit.
