Buy This Book: ‘DC Bombshells’ #1 Knocks It Out Of The Park

DC Bombshells #1

At first glance, DC Bombshells seems like it's operating on a pretty weird premise. It is, after all, a digital comic based on a line of statues that reimagine the company's heroines with retro, pinup-inspired designs, and while a lot of them have been pretty great, trying to create a narrative based around an aesthetic seems like a tough task. In practice, though, Marguerite Bennett and Marguerite Sauvage don't just rise to the occasion, they demolish it.

In a summer that's been marked by some of DC's strongest new titles in years, from Black Canary to Prez, the first digital chapter of Bombshells came out swinging and knocked it out of the park with what might just be the best first issue of the bunch.

The ‘A-Force’ Experience: A Perplexing Read for a Lapsed True Believer

Jim Cheung
Jim Cheung

A-Force is an alternate reality limited series that's a part of the current Marvel Comics crossover event, Secret Wars. Written by G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett and drawn by Jorge Molina, it's been greatly anticipated due to its pile-up of Marvel's best and lesser-known female superheroes, leading many to believe that it would be an all-women adventure.
At first it seems like an island full of women, and then it seems like an island full of superheroes. It’s neither. It’s not. This is no Themyscira.

Marvel Unveils ‘A-Force’, The All-Female Avengers, But Not On ‘The View’

AFORCE_001-hed

Marvel promised a "forceful" announcement on ABC's daytime talk show The View today, and the entire world was ready for a Secret Wars/Star Wars crossover comic that would pit Jar-Jar Binks against Adam The X-Treme (or something), and then... nothing. There was no Star Wars announcement. There was no announcement of any kind; it got bumped off the show. Still, someone at Marvel has hopefully learned an important lesson about not using the word 'force' to promote things that don't involve Star Wars.

What Marvel did announce today was a new Secret Wars tie-in that is legitimately exciting in its own right, just sadly overshadowed by the Star Wars announcement that never was and the epic DC announcement that kicked off the day. The real announcement, unveiled through various outlets, is a new all-female Avengers book from writers G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett, and artist Jorge Molina, called A-Force.

‘Sleepy Hollow’ #1 Is As Bonkers As Its Source Material (And That’s A Good Thing) [Review]

SH00

Sleepy Hollow is my favorite show on television, and has been since that scene in the first episode where the Headless Horseman showed up and tried to kill Ichabod Crane by blowing him away with a machine gun in each hand. It was, and remains, the single most beautiful thing I had ever seen, and while I initially worried about whether the show would be able to keep that energy up as the story rolled on, well, there was an episode last week with the premise of Benjamin Franklin building a Frankenstein's Monster out of the most powerful soldiers who died in the Revolutionary War, so, y'know, they've pretty much maintained a constant level of being absolutely bananas.

So needless to say, I was pretty excited when Boom Studios announced that they were going to be releasing a comic tie-in by Marguerite Bennett, Jorge Coelho, Tamra Bonvillain and Jim Campbell, because if nothing else, Sleepy Hollow's particular brand of horror-themed kookiness is exactly the sort of thing that would lend itself well to comics. Having read the first issue, out this week, I can confirm that the team did their absolute best to make the comic as weird as the show, and while it's not a perfect translation, it's definitely a good one.

Boom’s ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Comic Goes For Bigger-Than-TV Action [Preview]

SleepyHollowCoverMain

Fox's action/horror/comedy Sleepy Hollow is one of the best shows on TV right now, and it deserves a tie-in comic that captures its oddball charm. Luckily, it looks like that's what fans are getting in the new Boom Studios series by writer Marguerite Bennett and artist Jorge Coelho.

The team isn't just shoehorning TV plots into comics form, though. While Bennett and Coelho do a really nice job of capturing the voices and looks of lead characters Ichabod Crane and Lt. Abbie Mills, the team also adds in some big action that you can't really pull off on a TV budget. Check out the first six pages here at ComicsAlliance.

Archaia Goes Deep Cover With New Father-Daughter Spy Comic ‘Butterfly’

Butterfly1main

The subgenre of woman-led spy comics seems to be making a healthy surge right now, and Archaia is adding another title to the mix.

Butterfly, a new, four-issue series written by Marguerite Bennett (Angela: Asgard's Assassin) and Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco), and drawn by Antonio Fuso (G.I. Joe: Cobra), will start up Sept. 24 with a Phil Noto cover. It'll follow a deep cover agent who is a complete ghost--no birth certificate, no Social Security number--meeting her long-lost dad after being set up for murder. Turns out her dad was a spy, too.
