Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases For July 29 2015

BestComics_0729

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

Bizarro Back Issues: Astro Boy Against Lord Satan! (1962)

Astro Boy: Robot Land, Osamu Tezuka

If you've read one Astro Boy story, then the odds are pretty good that it's 1964's "The Greatest Robot On Earth." It's considered to be a high point not only for Astro Boy, but for Osamu Tezuka's career, a massive, sweeping story full of Earth-shattering fight scenes and a villain who, despite his horrible acts, isn't entirely evil. It was even revived as the basis for 2003's Pluto, one of the greatest comics of all time, where Naoki Urasawa retold the story as a murder mystery from an entirely new perspective. It is, by any measure, one of the all time greats.

But let's be real here: Why would anyone ever talk about that comic when the very next volume has a story where Astro Boy fights Lord Satan in an amusement park full of robot deathtraps?

There’s No Such Thing As An Ending: Paul Tobin Unveils ‘Mystery Girl’ [Exclusive]

MG0

This week at Comic-Con International, Dark Horse announced a new project from writer Paul Tobin and artist Alberto Albuquerque: Mystery Girl, a new ongoing series about a girl who knows everything. Her name is Trine Hampstead, and if you ask her a question, any question, no matter how big or small, she'll know the answer. As you might expect, she puts her skills to good use as a detective, but there's a catch: She doesn't know anything about her own past.

The first issue of the book will hit stands in December, but to get the answers to a few of the mysteries about the series itself, ComicsAlliance spoke exclusively to Tobin about where he and Albuquerque will take the series in its first arc, the push for world-traveling adventure, and how it all starts with a frozen mammoth.

Bizarro Back Issues: ‘RoboCop vs. The Terminator’ Is The Greatest Crossover Of All Time (1992)

RoboCop vs. The Terminator, Frank Miller and Walt Simonson

You might not realize it, but we're currently living in a Golden Age of licensed crossovers. I mean, really, you can go out right now and pick up a comic about the Ninja Turtles hanging out with the Ghostbusters and it'll be a rewarding experience that ties in logically to both ongoing series about those characters, and when you really think about it, that's mind-blowing. There was, after all, a time not too long ago when the big boom brought us a new installment of Such-and-Such vs. So-and-So almost every month, and getting excited for any of them was almost always a recipe for disappointment.

Except, that is, for the time Frank Miller and Walter Simonson decided to do a book about RoboCop fighting the Terminator and gave us the greatest crossover of all time.
