Staff Picks 4/5/17


Black Cloud #1: Zelda was born in a world of dreams, and hers burned bigger than anyone had ever seen. Now she's on the run in our world, the dreams broken in her hands.
But the pieces are for sale, the rich and the powerful are buying, and suddenly her world isn't the only place Zelda's running from. From the creators that brought you Spider-Gwen, SOUTHERN BASTARDS, and DRIFTER, and the incredible colorist of THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, comes a place where dreams come true--and today, they go to war.

Nightwing #18: "Nightwing Must Die" part three! Someone Dick loves is being held by one of the deranged foes of his past: Professor Pyg! Nightwing and Robin race to stop Pyg's attack, but an even darker villain may be waiting for them in the aftermath...

Tank Girl - World War Tank Girl #1: With a few bars of gold left, and Sub Girl's uneasy feeling that she left something behind, Tank Girl hires her scientist friend to reinvent time travel. The Third Reich have no idea what is coming their way!


All New Wolverine #19: New Suit! New Direction! Same Laura and Gabbi! I'm really excited to see where this book goes moving forward.

Black Cloud #1: Zelda was born in the world of dreams! This comic is bright and colorful, with deep running waters. This comic is awesome and I'm also super proud of shop friend Maria, who is the comic's editor.

Extremity #2: Thea finds a new ally and maybe she can find more than a need for vengeance in this world. This comic's approach to trauma and loss is powerful and I'm eager for each new issue.

More Awesome comics: America #2, Eleanor & Egret #1, Hawkeye #5, Kim Reaper #1, and Motor Girl #5.


All New Wolverine #19: After a little working vacation in Madripoor, Laura is back to being the best at what she does! This issue also debuts Wolverine's new costume(which I am kind of excited about)!

Goldie Vance #11: This book is a perfect mash up of Nancy Drew and Scooby Doo! There is something in this book for everyone (a good thing since it is rated for all ages) from car races to Russian spies and of course mystery! 

Green Lanterns #20: This is one of the best things to come out of Rebirth! Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz are one of the best Odd Couples in comics! The way that they clash and compliment each other has made for some very interesting stories.


PENNY DREADFUL #1 - I LOVED the first season of this show -- penny dreadfuls themselves have been a quiet interest of mine since I was a teenager. The second season got a little wonky. My hope is that a series based on the premise rather than an outright adaptation will fair better and not go completely off the rails. If you're into twisty horror ("Penny Dreadful" really says all that this series is), this will be a good read.

AMERICA #2 - Possible unpopular opinion ahead: World War II stuff is soooo overdone. BUT! A woman of color getting to punch Hitler in the face? Sign me up. I am super digging the college shenanigans thusfar. More please.

KIM REAPER #1 - Lesbian romance between the grim reaper and an angel? On brand.

STAR WARS ROGUE ONE ADAPTATION #1 - So, I'm in the camp of Star Wars fans that was disappointed by this movie. I liked what it was trying to do, but the lack of character involved in the storytelling made it hard for me to enjoy (minus everything to do with Krennic and also all of the Vader scenes. KILLER!) My hope is that we get a bit more of it in the adaptation comics...but that's probably wishful thinking.
