In the height of 1980s nostalgia, The Sequels dares to question whether our grasp on the past is endangering our future.
Remember the ‘80s? Avery, Gwen, Russell, and Dakota will never forget. As children, they each experienced unique adventures . . . saving the life of a sentient robot, partying with an intergalactic alien, battling the likes of vampires and werewolves, and defeating a nightmarish monster to protect imagination itself. Now, 30 years later, they’re directionless adults, still obsessed with their pasts. When a mysterious figure brings the group together to cope with their experiences, will they be prepared to live out the "sequels" to their childhood adventures?

As if there weren’t enough complications, more arise in issue #6 of Coda. Plus, there may be a potential solution to Hum’s ultimate goal. Hum is a do-gooding bard turned into a self-centered bandit. When the civilization of magic that had thrived then fell, he lost his wife Serka to bouts of rage, in which she’d disappear into the desert for weeks or months at a time seeking revenge. Now, the only bit of magic left in the world comes from a substance called Akker. Hum needs as much Akker as he can get to undo the curse that is coursing through Serka. The head of an Ylf that he now carries with him (Ylfs are magic beings that are full of Akker and regenerate.) accuses Hum of wanting to change her. He insists he wants to help her, and, with that, the strong and potentially tragic allegory at play here becomes very topical.
Hola, Wonder Warriors. Welcome to another edition of Wonder Woman Wednesday. It’s still a long way before June 5, 2020, arrives and we finally get the Wonder Woman sequel we’ve been salivating for since the credits rolled to the first
installment. In the meantime, I wanted to share some interesting facts and theories coming from the set. Since none of these are set in stone, things could definitely change, but I feel the need to warn of possible spoilers in the event they do see the day of light.
Cold Spots follows the story of an absentee father who is hired by his wealthy stepfather to find their wife/daughter, Alyssa, respectively, but, more importantly, the daughter that she has taken with her, Grace. Cullen Bunn enjoys crossing his genres, and this horror story is no exception, falling somewhere between gothic and noir. The father, Dan, sets off on a supernatural detective story that finds people instantaneously frozen to ice when touched by the supernatural predators.

Last year, Robert Arnold successfully crowdfunded the first two issues of Replicator, a series that he created and wrote. Replicator is a future-noir crime drama liberally seasoned with corporate intrigue. In the first issue, the story focused on border patroller Ryker Jones and his wife Sarah, a scientist, who has discovered a cure for a virus outbreak known as the Red Death. Things go awry and in the second issue, and the story shifts to a military battle with mechs and the introduction of a new character. The latter half of the issue rejoins with Ryker and Sarah.
The Resurrected is an ongoing series set in the near future where science has advanced to the point of ending death and suffering by offering eternal life. As readers learned in the first pages of the series, the cost of this technology was high: the death of 30 million people. In this future-noir series, writer/creator Christian Carnouche critically analyzes the philosophical ramifications of that cost. Additionally, Carnouche draws on the plight of the aboriginal people over the centuries, giving voice to a group of individuals that have had little to no representation in Westernized comics. It is a factor that sets this independent series apart and makes it a worthy read.
