This is BOOM!’s first attempt at an anthology of slayer stories in the mode of Dark Horse Comics’ Tales of the Slayers collection. In this collection, we explore the stories of three slayers of the past: a Chumash protector in Sunnydale in 1808 (“The Mission”); a young noblewoman in Bologna in the 14th century (“The Eating of Men”); and a party girl in Paris in 1820 “Behind the Mask.”
Lifeformed: Volume 2 - Hearts and Minds from Dark Horse Books is exactly what fans of the first volume needed. Writer Matt Mair Lowery and artist Cassie Anderson are back together for the second volume in this sci-fi adventure series, releasing September 4, as they dive deeper into the world surrounding Cleo and her shapeshifting alien friend, who also happens to look like her dad.
I can’t get over how fantastically talented Phoebe Waller-Bridge is. Not only is she the writer, creator, and star of the Emmy-nominated Fleabag, she’s also the showrunner for the spy thriller, Killing Eve – a completely different show in both style and tone, but still excellent and fun to watch. Additionally, she’s the creator/star of a 2016 BBC show called Crashing and was the voice of L3-37 in Solo: A Star Wars Story last year, among many other things. Still, her crowning achievement, in my opinion, is Fleabag. It’s a very simple, very understated show, but it blew me away. Twice.
The year is 1931, set in Chicago. History buffs will probably recognize this as being set during the Prohibition era… In this case, the contraband is not hooch, but magic. Issue #1 comes with all of the standard fixin's of a standard crime thriller, but with a magical twist. You get cops with personal demons, Al Capone, mysterious wizards, a pentagram, and, this being Chicago, the Church.
What in the world is going on at Manor Black? And, why do the residents of Birch County keep spontaneously combusting? Issue #2 of Manor Black brings readers closer to answers, but leaves just as many questions as the mystery of the magical Black family and the curious Ari deepens.

Power-Con, as in prior years, delivers heavily on quality programming for its attendees, and this year was no different, with panels discussing everything from toys to the big news of Kevin Smith bringing He-Man to Netflix. As big of a news item as that is, the acclaimed She-Ra and the Princess of Power had just started its third season on Netflix earlier in August. To commemorate the event and all that the cartoon has accomplished thus far, Power-Con gathered the writers of She-Ra for an in-depth panel on not just the She-Ra cartoon, but what it is like to be a writer for the show and the important aspects – from diversity to creating a safe space – that they encourage.
