Sonic Is Ready To Party In ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ #284, Assuming He Lives That Long [Preview]

Sonic the Hedgehog #284, Archie Comics

I've been pretty up front about the fact that I know very little about the world of Sonic the Hedgehog, but I do know that it can be pretty shockingly complicated. I know, for instance, that Sonic likes to run fast and is always ready to party, but when it comes to figuring out how the world he lives in was shattered by a global cataclysm, or why he's hanging out with cyborgs and a sentient AI who takes the form of a holographic lynx, I'm a little more hazy.

But if you're in the same boat, good news. The next issue of Archie's long-running Sonic the Hedgehog starts off with a series of quick captions to explain everything --- and a More Than Meets The Eye/Arrested Development party to celebrate something that they actually have not accomplished yet. But will the answers themselves become more questions? Decide for yourself with the preview below!

A First Look At New ‘Supergirl’ Comics From the DC All-Access Panel [SDCC 2106]

SG_featured

At this afternoon's DC All-Access Panel at San Diego Comic Con, unlettered pages were revealed from both Supergirl: Rebirth #1, the one-shot that relaunches Supergirl as part of DC's Rebirth event, and Supergirl #1, the first issue of her new ongoing series.

Both books are written by Steve Orlando, with Emmanuela Lupacchino, Ray McCarthy, and Michael Atiyeh providing art for the Rebirth issue, while Brian Ching and Michael Atiyeh handle art for the ongoing. The art in the one-shot has more of a "DC House Style" look to it, while the ongoing's art is a little more stylized and "cute." But both feature an upbeat-looking Supergirl in basically her classic costume, which is something we haven't had in the DC Universe for years. And that's exciting.

Get A Crash Course In Barbara Gordon’s History In ‘Batgirl And The Birds Of Prey: Rebirth’ #1 [Preview]

Batgirl and the Birds of Prey: Rebirth #1, DC Comics

If you've been keeping up with the reboots, relaunches and Rebirths of the DC Universe that we've had over the past few years, then you probably already know that the women who make up the Birds of Prey are very, very different from the way they were a decade ago. Barbara Gordon is the hip young Batgirl who protects Burnside from the threat of evil social media apps, Black Canary's a rock star, and Helena Bertinelli just lost her job as the Matron of a worldwide spy organization based out of a boarding school.

With all that said, you could be forgiven for being a little bit lost, but fret no longer, dear reader. When Batgirl and the Birds of Prey: Rebirth hits shelves next week, it'll catch you up on the current status of the team --- starting with Barbara Gordon. Check out a preview below!

Tag Along On Archer And Faith’s First Date In ‘A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong’ #5 [Preview]

A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong #5, Valiant Entertainment

If you're a fan of Valiant's Faith --- and you should be, she's great --- then you're in for a pretty good time next Wednesday. Not only does July 20 see the release of the all-new Faith ongoing series from Jody Houser, Pere Perez, Marguerite Sauvage and Colleen Doran, which picks up where the fantastic "Hollywood and Vine" miniseries left off and introduces an all-new supervillain, but we're also going to see her in a pretty significant guest appearance.

In A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong #5, by Rafer Roberts, Mike Norton, and Allen Passalaqua, Faith and Archer are finally going on their first date, and if you thought seeing Archer trying to use emojis was cute, wait'll you see the conversation they have over dinner. Of course, given their night jobs --- and the fact that there's a shady dude watching them over mozzarella sticks --- I'm going to guess that the night might not go as smoothly as they'd like. Check out a preview!

Tim Seeley, Scott Godlewski, and Patricia Mulvihill Bring ‘The Lost Boys’ to Comics

LOST_BOYS_featured

"Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die." The Lost Boys made vampirism seem pretty cool back in 1987, and like so many other things that were cool in the '80s, they've now made their way to comics, thanks to Vertigo and Warner Bros. The Lost Boys is a direct sequel to the film, following the Emerson brothers and the Frog brothers into a new adventure when a gang of female vampires emerges to fill the power vacuum left by the defeat of Max, David, and their boys.

Experience The Smells Of Gotham City In ‘Batman’ #3 [Preview]

Batman #3, DC Comics

As much as they're my preferred medium, I have to admit that comic books have a pretty major flaw. For visuals, they've got it covered with their unique combination of art and text, but for the other senses? Nothin'. I can tell you all about the history of Batman's war on crime and the different ways that it's changed over the past 77 years, but if you asked me to tell you what Gotham City smells like, I'd be completely unable to. Until now!

It seems that Tom King and David Finch have recognized this problem and taken steps to correct it in the pages of Batman #3, thanks to some very evocative descriptions of the sights and scents of the Dark Knight's hometown. Check out a preview!

Valiant Lines Up Lemire And Braithwaite For ‘Bloodshot USA’ In October

Bloodshot USA, Valiant Entertainment

If you've been keeping up with the events of Bloodshot Reborn, then you already know that Ray Garrison isn't the only person to ever be modified into the unstoppable soldier known as Bloodshot. In the current "Bloodshot Island" story arc, readers have seen prototypes that date back almost a hundred years --- including a dog named Bloodhound, which is a pretty solid contender for the Sensational Character Find of 2016.

But in October, it seems that writer Jeff Lemire and artist Doug Braithwaite are taking that idea to the next level with Bloodshot USA, a four-issue miniseries that finds Project Rising Spirit releasing its nanites on New York City --- and turning the entire island of Manhattan into Bloodshots.

Deadman featured

Gothic romance returns to DC Comics this October with the arrival of Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love by Sarah Vaughn and Lan Medina. The three-issue series tells the story of a young woman named Berenice who has the ability to see ghosts. She's also caught in a love triangle with her boyfriend and her non-binary best friend, but her conflicted heart may be the least of her problems, as the mansion they occupy is haunted by a very angry revenant. Thankfully another ghost soon arrives to offer his help, and it's none other than Boston Brand, the Deadman.
