Five New Comics Hitting The Shelves This Week

Immortal

Immortal

Writer: Rob Potchak
Artist: Owen Gieni
Publisher: Keenspot

When you’re seven-hundred years old, you think you’ve seen everything. This is the case for the immortal Elisa, once a 16th-century noblewoman who partied with Nostradamus. Now her everlasting life marches on in present day 1997, where she’s a sword-swinging adventurer who moonlights as a librarian, and she’s about to discover that there are always new things to discover!

Kick ass leading lady – check. Sexy librarian – check. Party girl – check. If I could be any woman in the world, I think it might have to be Elisa, and I haven’t even seen what she’s capable of yet. She’s the whole package, and did I mention Immortal! Plus she’s illustrated by Owen Gieni, who has done such an amazing job on the latest run of Rat Queens – you just know she’s going to look stunning.

Wynonna Earp

Wynonna Earp

Writer: Beau Smith

Artist

: IDW

Outlaws. Mavericks. Werewolves. These are The Banditos, the gang Wynonna ran with in her wildest, pre-Black Badge days. Somebody, or something is killing them off, one by one. It’s up to Wynonna to return to her roots, and find out why!

If you’re a fan of Syfy’s Wynonna Earp TV series – which explores the life of the legendary Wyatt Earp’s great great granddaughter – you’ll want to check out Beau Smith’s new series. It tells the story of Wynonna’s outlaw past, before she showed up in Purgatory, for the first time ever. As the original creator of Wynonna Earp, Smith is more than qualified to spill all her secrets.

Calexit

Calexit

Writer: Matt Pizzolo

Artist
: Amancay Nahuelpan

Publisher
: Black Mask Comics

What if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States? And what if that President lost California, the sixth largest economy on Earth, by nearly 2-to-1…a margin of almost 3 1/2 million votes? What if the day after that President took power, the largest mass demonstration in history occurred, and the state with the largest turnout was California. And then, the following week, two of the largest international airports in the world, California’s LAX and SFO, were blockaded by protesters? What if California refused to be ruled?

Potentially the most relevant comic out there at the moment, Calexit is written by one of Black Mask Studios creators, Matt Pizzolo, who is no stranger to politically charged comic book series. Calexit is by no means factually based, but it provides an insight into what a very real America could look like if people were to band together. I think this will be a very fascinating read, especially for those who actually live in California.

Spider-Men II

Spider-Men

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis

Artist
: Sara Pichelli

Publisher
: Marvel

The first time Peter Parker and Miles Morales met ended with a question – WHO IS THE MILES MORALES OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE?! Now that the Miles you know and love is with Peter in the Marvel Universe, you’re finally going to get that answer to who the OTHER Miles Morales is! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Following the events of Secret Wars, Miles Morales now resides in the same universe as Peter Parker, and withย a new Spider-Man movie tearing up the box office, and the prospect of an animated Spider-Man film showcasing alternate Spidey – Morales, the web slinger has never been more talked about, which makes it the perfect time to bring both of them together. Hopefully this new series will fix all the continuity issues between the two alternate Spider-Men.

Skin & Earth

Writer: Lights

Artist
: Lights

Publisher
: Dynamite

Skin & Earth is a story of a girl looking for hope in a hopeless world. Caught between romance and cults, gods and mortals, and just trying to find a good borscht, Enaia Jin is lead down a dark path by new lovers that reveal a twisted fantasy world and her own true nature. Set in a post-apocalyptic future where corporations rule, this adventurous tale of loneliness, deceit and self-discovery begins here! Written and drawn by alt-pop phenomenon Lights, Skin & Earth ties directly into her next full length album, released in Fall 2017 on Warner Bros Records.

Electro-pop artist, Lights, who has a new LP due out later in the year, has decided to branch into the comic universe and paired her latest musical venture with it’s very own comic book. Having never heard of Lights, I’m more intrigued by the artwork that goes along with Skin & Earth. The simple yet beautiful images are drawn by Lights herself and depict a story about an alter ego that inspired her latest album – something i’m now quite looking forward to listening to.
