In its first year, Magnetic Press made quite a dent, earning two Eisner nominations for Tony Sandoval’s Doomboy and Dave Dorman’s Wasted Lands Omnibus. Magnetic is heading into its second year with some big followup plans. The publisher announced Wednesday that it will launch 10 new titles --- a mix of original graphic novels, reprint material and what looks to be monthly comics, though Magnetic hasn't made entirely clear what the formats for each book will be.
You know Blade, right? He's the Daywalker, a vampire hunter with some vampiric abilities of his own. Grew up in a brothel. Hunted Dracula. Hung out with Dr. Strange a lot.

Beauty pageantry is the name of the game in April's Bravest Warriors #7 by Joey Comeau and Mike Holmes. Continuing the team's undercover operation that kicked off in issue #5, the ongoing adventure comes wrapped in covers by Tyson Hesse (Diesel, Boxer Hockey), Nick Edwards (Dinopopolous), Jake Lawerence (Time Cowboy) and Logan Faerber (Adventure Time) that explore the wonders of
If Susan Strong turns your heart on, Zack Giallongo's Adventure Time #11 backup will likely prove worth the issue's physical/digital cover price alone. Joining the main story by Ryan North, Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb, Giallongo's "The Meaning of Bravery" turns the book's attention on the super buff subterranean maybe-human known as Susan as her naivety about the wider world gets exploited by a sinister force. There's a good heart ins
Logan Faerber's art drips and stretches with a shocking amount of finesse. It's easy to get carried away with exaggerated proportions, and many artists do; but Faerber sets himself apart with his vivid, looney interpretations of Harry Potter and Thor
