NEW COMICS & G/N'S MAY 13TH 2015



New Comics and Graphic Novels for New Comics Day Wed 13th May.
As usual we are open until 7pm to give YOU ALL a chance to get a lovely fix of comics.


Well then
 if you found #1 of Secret Wars an incoherent lighting narrative akin to a last minute booking, a chaotic pack and a one way ticket to the great unknown you'll be relieved that #2 is a different species of sequential treacle to pour upon your eyeballs.
Number 2 reads like a Lonely Planet guide to a Game of Thrones / Marvel U mash-up.
This is world building by a pro aided by an elegant pencil and teary tones as if Boris Vallejo had wept upon the page.
In this world 'The Iron Throne' is a MAN (I think) ruling a (seeming) patriarchy leaving only standing room for the ladies who are cursed with an equity minimum of dialogue but...

This was GREAT stuff! 
REALLY great stuff and suddenly all those wonky solicits for inaugural issues to come makes more sense.
Yes there is exposition a plenty that hits you hard but its woven tight within the chat at court.
and yes there is a lot of chat.

 And yes we have seen this 'What If' 'Age of Apocalypse' thang a zillion times before but this feels fresh and teases out a world rich with promise!
 So raise an Iron goblet filled to the Ribic brim to Mr Hickman and sup away!
I'M IN LOVE & ALL IN!
How about you?

Lantern City #1

Boom Studios Comics

(W) Paul Jenkins (A) Carlos Magno (CA) Benjamin Carre

Sander Jorve just wants to keep his wife and son safe. Living in the brutalized lower class of Lantern City means living in near constant darkness, the enormous walls of the city always looming overhead, while the upper class enjoys the elevated, interconnected towers and airships above. When Sander's brother-in-law, the persuasive activist Kendal, convinces him to infiltrate the brutal ranks of the Guard, he's set on a dangerous path that will test his abilities and beliefs, all in the name of making a difference for his family and his caste.
