Moon Knight #1 — Writer: Jeff Lemire; Art: Greg Smallwood; Colors: Jordie Bellaire The Unbelievable Gwenpool #1 — Writer: Christopher Hastings; Art: Gurihiru with Danilo Beyruth Spider-Gwen #7 — Writer: Jason Latour; Art: Bengal; Colors: Rico Renzi Only two Marvel debuts this week — Moon Knight starts in a One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest setting, with its title character in an insane asylum, trying to decide whether the whole Konshu/superpowers thing is real, or just a symptom of his madness; considering that multiple personality disorder’s been hard-wired into his origin from the beginning, it’s probably a little of both. … Continue reading

Davis and Farmer … Continue reading
The Astonishing Ant-Man #1 — Writer: Nick Spencer; Art: Ramon Rosanas; Colors: Jordan Boyd The Uncanny Inhumans #1 — Writer: Charles Soule; Pencils: Jay Leisten; Inks: Steve McNiven; Colors: Sunny Cho Karnak #1 — Writer: Warren Ellis; Art: Gerardo Zaffino; Colors: Dan Brown Marvel continues its reboot rollout with three new titles this week: Ant-Man has some imaginative ideas from Spencer — like a Silicon Valley entrepreneur who’s created an Uber-like app for supervillains: need a hero assassinated? It’ll find whoever’s closest and dispatch them to do the job, as Scott Lang finds out to his dismay. There’s a little … Continue reading
There were only six Secret Wars tie-ins this week (and, even more encouragingly, five were conclusions), but instead of starting with them let’s look at another genre: a batch of quirky, smart kids’ comics: Archie #3 — Writer: Mark Waid; Art: Fiona Staples; Colors: Andre Szymanowicz Jem and the Holograms Outrageous Annual 2015 #1 — Writer: Kelly Thompson; Art: Various The Amazing World of Gumball 2015 Grab Bag Special #1 — Creators: Various Rick and Morty #6 — Writer: Zac Gorman; Art: Andrew Maclean; Colors: Nick Filardi Bee and Puppycat #9 — Writer: Patrick Seery; Art/Colors: Ji in Kim Archie’s … Continue reading
