Star Wars comics are going back to where it all began in this new series which picks up right after the events of the original 1977 Star Wars film and follows the exploits of Luke, Han, Leia, and Chewie as they battle the Galactic Empire alongside the rest of the Rebel Alliance.
The Rapture has come and millions of good people are whisked away to Heaven, including, in a clerical error, one Bram Carlson, a man whose skills as a roommate alone would probably disqualify him from passing through the pearly gates, not to mention his history of womanizing, theft, and a plethora of other sins. After Heaven realizes their mistake, Bram is sent back to Earth with the knowledge that the end of the world has arrived and he, along with his roommate Ben, intend to make the most of the time they have left.
I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of “what would have happened” if I had done something different with my life, or if characters had done something different in a variety of mediums that I pay attention to. There’s always been at least one thing in my life that I would like to change, though I know that I can’t, because it would change who I am—for good or bad, I’m stuck with who I am, because I’m not sure I would like who I would have been instead.
On the eve of Cybertron’s first free elections, everything has fallen apart. Megatron has returned, inciting Decepticons across the capital of Iacon to riot. The political jockeying of Bumblebee, Starscream, and Metalhawk has consequences, foreseen and otherwise. And, Prowl’s notorious machinations have been building to this moment, and it all revolves around what’s contained in the Black Room. (Not the Black Room where DC keeps all of its powerful magical artifacts, probably. That would be crazy.)
In recent years, alien invaders have had it rough. They’ve fought cowboys, they’ve fought Texans with jetpacks, they’ve even fought dinosaurs. Earth’s lucky to have so many anti-alien fighting forces, and it still has at least one ace up its planetary sleeve: genies. That’s the premise of Jinnrise, a new series written by Sohaib Awan and drawn by Tony Vassallo.
"I play right field; it's important, ya know? Ya gotta know how ta catch, ya gotta know how ta throw. That's why I play in right field, way out where the dandelions grow."
If you were a childhood Turtles fan, before you wore the tape out, you knew every word of that song from the Pizza Hut commercial before the beginning of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie. You knew where to get the scrolls in the sewer of the NES game, where the Neutrinos are from, and that the Foot Clan was a bunch of hunchbacked robots wearing purple masks . . . maybe not that last part. This might be a good place for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secret History of the Foot Clan #1 to lend a hand . . . or toe . . . or . . . whatever.
In Issue #4 of the Doctor Who comic, Rory and the Doctor are unable to get back to Amy, who is stuck in 1814 in London. Rory and the Doctor find themselves a few years early (or possibly later) during the War of 1812, a century and a half late and on the Moon, and about 115 years late in New York City. Amy, however, is left to deal with one of the most odd (Doctor-Donna-Friend) tragedies in London’s history: the London Beer Flood.
We all know the story of Womanthology by now, the fantastic comic anthology series created entirely by women. Womanthology: Space continues with an amazing issue containing three very different stories, all set around the theme of a star.
