Mongul Is Coming, But Poison Ivy Has Her Own Agenda In Francis Manapul’s ‘Trinity’ #5 [Exclusive]

TRI_FEATURED

When your main characters are Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, you're going to need to have big stories, and big powerful villains. Not just physically intimidating villains, but those who bring a broader sort of power to the table. And as we reach a turning point in "Better Together," the first storyline of Trinity, written and illustrated by Francis Manapul, the mastermind behind the entire plot has come to light, and it's just that sort of powerful villain: Mongul.

Kingpin_1_Featured

Even as the line between criminal mastermind and respectable businessman seems to grow ever-thinner in real life, Marvel's Kingpin of Crime is doing his best to cross that line in Kingpin #1, written by Matthew Rosenberg with art by Ben Torres.

The high concept behind X-O Manowar has always been the book's biggest strengths, but when the series returns for its new volume in 2017, Matt Kindt, Tomas Giorello, and Diego Rodriguez are diving into the nature of his story in a way that I don't think we've ever seen.

The ongoing series will feature four distinct arcs that will chart Aric of Dacia's rise on an alien planet: "Soldier," "General," "Emperor," and finally to "Visigoth." Now, with the debut of the series slated for March, we're getting an early look at X-O Manowar #2 --- and unsurprisingly, it looks like it's going to be pretty brutal. Check it out below!

A new Lobster Johnson one-shot is always a cause for celebration, and the pulp hero always gives Mike Mignola and his collaborators the opportunity to expand the history of the Hellboy universe while telling rollicking adventure stories in the great American tradition.

Written by Mignola and John Arcudi, with art by Stephen Green and colors by Dave Stewart, Lobster Johnson: Garden of Bones sees the hero investigating a possible zombie uprising, and we have an exclusive preview from the one-shot.

Shadowman Returns In ‘Divinity III: Shadowman And The Battle Of New Stalingrad’ #1 [Preview]

Divinity III: Shadowman and the Battle Of New Stalingrad #1, Valiant Entertainment

Shadowman had his own ongoing series with a new take on magic and mysticism early in Valiant's relaunch back in 2012, but after that title ended, he's been conspicuous by his absence. Now, with Divinity III rewriting the Valiant universe with a new history where the Soviet Union took over the world, the stage is set for Shadowman's return and a supernatural battle for the fate of New Stalingrad --- or as we might know it in this timeline, New York City. Check out a first look below!

Sith Versus Rathtars In ‘Star Wars: Darth Maul’ #1 [Preview]

Darth_Maul_1_Featured

We always hoped that Darth Maul was more than just a pretty face. He was introduced way back in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, where he looked cool and was great at fighting but barely had lines, displayed little personality, and (seemingly) died at the end. He's appeared since in various tie-in stories and animated episodes, but now he's getting a spotlight like never before in a new Marvel comic --- and Marvel has provided a first look at issue #1.

Take A Tour Of Britain’s Greatest Super-Prison In ‘Ninjak’ #23 [Preview]

Ninjak #23, Valiant Entertainment

Listen: At this point, we all know that I am deeply, fervently in the tank for Ninjak and its incredibly rewarding blend of over-the-top high concept action and deeply strange psychological storytelling, mostly because I talk about how much I love it at literally every opportunity. Because of that, I've been excited about the upcoming "Seven Blades of Master Darque" storyline since it was announced, and while some of you might still be on the fence, they didn't need to do anything else to lure me in. But they did it anyway.

As this preview reveals, the storyline that kicks off in next week's Ninjak #23 from Matt Kindt, Marc Laming, and Ulises Arreola will feature a cutaway diagram of an underground prison full of deathtraps. Don't miss it!

Nick_Fury_1_Featured

Marvel's number one superspy is back in his own solo comic with April's Nick Fury #1, written by James Robinson with art by ACO. The book looks to be a lot of fun, focusing on single-issue capers that take Fury all over the world and even into outer space. But the really exciting thing is ACO's art.

Barbara Changes Her Major And Meets The Son Of A Bat-Villain In ‘Batgirl’ #7 [Preview]

BG_Featured

Barbara's back from her travels in Asia, but she and Burnside are both different from when she left. The preview for Batgirl #7, by Hope Larson and new ongoing artist Christian Wildgoose, finds Barbara back in school, but now in the Library Science program. This is a nice callback to the original concept of Batgirl as a librarian in her secret identity, but a much more modern take, with her emphasis on community, information, and access.

‘Gotham Academy: Second Semester’ #5 Proves That Smoke Bombs Are The Solution To All Your Teen Problems [Exclusive Preview]

Gotham Academy: Second Semester #5, DC Comics

I think we can all agree that the American educational system could use some improvements, and no institution embodies that idea more than Gotham City's prestigious Gotham Academy. There's high tuition that prices quality education out of the reach of the middle class, an emphasis on standardized testing that doesn't prepare students for real-world problem solving, and, perhaps most pressing, the fact that pretty much everyone on staff has committed some kind of thematic crime that has led them to fight the vigilante known as Batman.

Actually, in retrospect, that might be one of the school's more positive points, but as its second semester rolls on, promising students like Colton Rivera and Pomeline Fritch are having difficulty pursuing a proper education thanks to the fact that most, if not all, of their teachers are in fact arch-criminals. Check out a preview to see for yourself!
