With Bloodshot's relaunch in October as the four-issue Bloodshot USA looming large, that raises the question of just how Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite are going to top what they've already done. And now, with a preview of the first issue, we know exactly how.
First, they're going to infect the entire population of Manhattan with Bloodshot nanites that'll turn them into mindless killing machines, and second --- oh hell yes --- Ninjak's getting involved.
Jeff Lemire is a writer who can balance working on sensitive and thought provoking creator owned work such as Trillium and Descender with working on some of the biggest franchises in mainstream superhero comics. While at Marvel Comics he currently writes Extraordinary X-Men and Moon Knight, he had a lengthy stint at DC Comics recently, and Comixology has assembled those runs into a neat little sale.
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.
Marvel Comics' wave of announcements for its post-Civil War II line-up keeps on trucking with news of four more ongoing series with high-profile creative teams that give us a peek at the new Marvel NOW. As part of the new status quo, Carol Danvers is more popular than ever, there's a new Iron Man who isn't Riri Williams, Thanos is getting his shot at a title, and we finally get that new Jessica Jones series we've been waiting a year for.
When Marvel Comics resumed normal publishing with the All-New, All-Different initiative in the wake of Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic's Secret Wars, the timeline had jumped eight months ahead to a world where the Terrigen Bomb had made Inhumans more prominent than ever, but had begun killing off mutants, forcing the X-Men to retreat to Limbo.
We knew something went down between the mutants and the Inhumans, and we know that Cyclops did something that took him off the board, but we don't yet know the full details of what happened in that eight month gap. That's about to change as this October Extraordinary X-Men writer Jeff Lemire and Uncanny Inhumans writer Charles Soule team up to tell that story in Death of X.
This summer, Valiant is flashing forward nearly two-thousand years into the future and checking in on what’s going on with their most popular characters in the year 4001 AD with a series of special one shots. Valiant has released a preview of 4001 AD: Bloodshot #1 by Jeff Lemire, Doug Braithwaite and Brian Reber!
The Flash has been one of the most consistently enjoyable and downright fun comic book adaptations since it debuted, and more than most of its peers it is blisteringly unafraid to embrace its comic book origins. In the space of two seasons we've got multiverses, time travel, and an honest-to-gosh Gorilla City, and it paved the way for shows like Arrow and Gotham to lighten up and have more fun.
With no new episodes of The Flash until later this year, you might be looking for something to fill that science-based superhero hole in your life, and we've got five great independent comics for you that, while they might not all feature a super-speedster punching a gorilla in the face, do live up to The Flash's absurdity and unrelenting inventiveness in one way or another!
The second annual Valiant Summit just wrapped at the UCB Theatre in New York City, the Belle of the East Coast. Broadcast on livestream, the summit saw several writers and artists take to the stage to talk about a string of new books from the publisher that will fall under the banner “The Future of Valiant”, including Rafer Roberts, Jody Houser, and Matt Kindt.
The event was Valiant's answer to Image Expo, with five new titles announced, including the long-rumbled Britannia, plus the previously announced Faith ongoing. Here's the full rundown.
Star Wars is more popular than ever after the release of last years' seventh installment The Force Awakens rekindled everyone's love for stories set a long time ago in a galaxy far away, and the trailer for this year's Rogue One has that excitement rolling right along.
Comics and sci-fi have a long history together going way back to serialised comic strips of the '30s such as Flash Gordon, and they've only grown in size and scope since then. Star Wars itself has experienced a comics renaissance at Marvel Comics thanks to the likes of Jason Aaron, John Cassaday, Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca, but once you've caught up on those, we've assembled a list of some of the best contemporary independent sci-fi comics on the stands.
Moon Knight is a character that has gone through a lot at Marvel, and he's one of those characters that's so adaptable that everyone wants to do something different with him, to the point where it's eventually hard to square all the many versions into one coherent character. However, Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire managed to craft possibly the definitive Moon Knight take with six issues of their 2014 run, to the point that everything that comes after it is going to be compared to that yardstick.
This week sees the release of a new Moon Knight volume, by Jeff Lemire, Greg Smallwood and Jordie Bellaire, which seemed to be going in an opposite direction from the previous run by returning Marc Spector’s dissociative identity disorder and placing him in what the book calls an “insane asylum.” It’s a take on the character that seemed fairly archaic and in poor taste, but on the page the creative team has turned in a first issue on par with the previous run, while doing something completely new.
