DC COMICS

EARTH-PRIME #1
Manus: Natalie Abrams, Kelly Larson, Camrus Johnson
Illustration: Clayton Henry

”Spinning out of the hit CW shows, Earth-Prime continues the adventures of your favorite heroes from the small screen. While each issue focuses on a different Arrowverse series, a threat lurks in the background, out to finally bring these heroes to their knees!
Ever since the tech that created many of Batman’s rogues hit the streets, Ryan Wilder has been running herself ragged trying to contain the new villains popping up around Gotham City. But when Clayface’s mud binds itself to a local high schooler, Batwoman will need help from an unexpected source in order to contain this muddy foe! Also, follow how Luke Fox balances his life as a superhero and a boyfriend!”

Kommentar: En ny följetong byggd på karaktärer ur TV-bolaget CW:s Arrowverse där varje nummer fokuserar på olika hjältar i fristående äventyr. Först ut är Batwoman följt av Superman & Lois, Legends of Tomorrow, Stargirl, The Flash, med flera.

THE SANDMAN UNIVERSE: NIGHTMARE COUNTRY #1
Manus: James Tynion IV
Illustration: Lisandro Estherren

”Sometimes, nightmares walk the Earth. Every night when you sleep, the Lord of Dreams chooses the path you’ll follow…into a sylvan Elysium, or down the hallways of your darkest fears. And sometimes, if it is Dream’s will, those nightmares escape those halls, and go out into the world. But it is not a choice he makes lightly.

Today the Corinthian walks the Earth again. The most feared of all Dream’s nightmares, his ravenous mouths have made him a legend among serial killers. Letting the Corinthian out among mortals is the most dangerous thing Dream could possibly do. But he has no choice—because there is another nightmare walking the Earth, one that must be hunted…and this monster is one that Dream, lord of all nightmares, did not make.#

Kommentar: Mångårige DC-skribenten James Tynion IV har levererat flera bra skräckserier på sistone, såsom Something is Killing the Children, The Department of Truth eller The Nice House on the Lake,  och nu får han sätta tänderna i en mardrömslik följetong som utspelas i The Sandmans universum.

MARVEL COMICS

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1
Manus: Zeb Wells
Illustration: John Romita Jr.

”Peter’s on the outs with the FF. He’s on the outs with the Avengers. He’s on the outs with Aunt May! No one wants to see Spider-Man – except for Doctor Octopus. Ock’s on Spider-Man’s tail and the Master Planner has something truly terrible planned for when he gets his tentacles on Spidey. All that, and what does Tombstone have planned? Just in time for Spider-Man’s 60th Anniversary, a new volume of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN begins, and 2022 is going to be the biggest year for Spider-Man EVER! Don’t believe us? We brought John Romita Jr. back JUST FOR THIS!”

Intresse: 3
Kommentar: Spider-Man fyller 60 år 2022 och det kommer Marvel uppmärksamma hela året, bland annat med en del obskyra titlar (som Spider-Punk??!!), nytryck av klassiska äventyr men också en nystart av huvudtiteln med den gamle trotjänaren John Romita Jr. som tecknare.

X-MEN RED #1
Manus: Al Ewing
Illustration: Stefano Caselli

”WHO CAN SAVE THE RED PLANET?
The mutants of Arakko spent millennia scarred by war — but on what was once called Mars, they’re learning to live in peace. STORM knows the red planet needs something greater than a queen. But ABIGAIL BRAND has other plans, along with an unstable VULCAN on her side and CABLE keeping his own secrets. Welcome to X-MEN RED. It’s a new world…and someone has to fight for it.”

Intresse: 4
Kommentar: X-Men har fått en egen planet nu, nämligen Mars som nyligen terraformerats och fått ett nytt namn, Arakko, och där huserar flera X-relaterade mutanter från Jorden, såsom Magneto, Cable, Sunspot och Vulcan. X-Men gör anspråk på att göra Arakko till solsystemets centrum, med Storm som dess ledare och drottning, och den främsta försvarslinjen vid eventuella invasionsförsök från andra galaxer.

KNIGHTS OF X #1
Manus: Tini Howard
Illustration: Bob Quinn

”THE QUEST BEGINS HERE, WHERE MUTANTS ARE HATED AND FEARED ONCE AGAIN!
The gates to Otherworld are closed — and Captain Britain is trapped on the wrong side! Usurpers Merlyn and his right-hand man, King Arthur, are now in control of Lunatic Citadel. Furies the size of Sentinels raze villages to the ground in their hunt for the ”witchbreed.” Cutoff from Krakoa, Betsy Braddock is Otherworld’s only hero — and to save her people, Betsy must recruit a round table of her own. The Knights of X gather to restore the rightful order and rescue desperate mutants — but their quest is about to get so much bigger than that. This is the era of destiny…and the fate of Otherworld lies at the center of mutantkind’s future. Don’t miss this essential piece of the new Krakoa!”

Intresse: 4
Kommentar: Den senaste Excalibur-serien slutade med att den elake Merlyn tog kontroll över Otherworld och spred skräck i det mystiska riket med hjälp av en armé av Furies. Betsy Braddock, den nye Captain Britain, gör allt hon kan för återställa ordningen och rekryterar ett nytt team så består av kända ansikten från Excalibur-serien.

HULK: GRAND DESIGN – MADNESS #1
Manus/Illustration: Jim Rugg

”Writer/artist Jim Rugg concludes his creative reimagining of the entire history of THE INCREDIBLE HULK in this can’t-miss oversized issue. You’ll never look at Bruce Banner the same way again!”

Intresse: 5
Kommentar: Förra Månadens Tips gick till Hulk: Grand Design – Monster av Jim Rugg och även om den avslutande delen Hulk: Grand Design – Madness rekommenderas varmt så finns det ytterligare en titel i april som förtjänar titel Månadens Tips lite mer. Missförstå mig rätt: Jim Ruggs fantastiska sammanfattning av Hulks första 40 år i Marvels universum kan vara en av årets bästa titlar som både riktar sig till hängivna äldre fans, som mig själv, och nya läsare som aldrig fått bekanta sig med min smaragdgröne väns alla underbara eskapader genom åren.

IMAGE COMICS

MÅNADENS TIPS: THE GHOST IN YOU: A RECKLESS BOOK HC
Manus: Ed Brubaker
Illustration: Sean Phillips

When a movie scream queen asks her to prove the mansion she’s renovating isn’t haunted, Anna will stumble into the decades-long mystery of one of Hollywood’s most infamous murder houses…a place with many dark secrets—some of which might just kill her.”

Intresse: 5
Kommentar: Den fjärde boken i Ed Brubaker och Sean Phillips underbara Reckless-serie blir ett måste och utses härmed till Månadens tips för april månad. Här får Ethan Reckless hjälpreda Anna stå på egna ben i ett härligt skräckmysterium med ett hemsökt hus, bestialiska mord och höga insatser.

”“A MESSAGE FROM HOME,” Part One
Henry West is brutally kidnapped in the middle of the night while his wife Julie watches, terrified. Henry awakens to the reality of his whereabouts, but Julie, with no evidence of the phantom crime, is unable to get help to search for him.”

Intresse:
Kommentar: Skräckmästaren Steve Niles är hjärnan bakom rysare som 30 Days of Night och Criminal Macabre och hans nya samarbete med Szymon Kudranski (Spawn) handlar om en hemlig plats full av hemska monster som härjar i full frihet.

DECORUM HC
Manus: Jonathan Hickman
Illustration: Mike Huddleston

”There are many assassins in the known universe, this is the story of the most well-mannered one.”

Intresse: 5
Kommentar: Jonathan Hickman är en av mina favoritförfattare, speciellt gillar jag hans minnesvärda äventyr med Fantastic Four, Avengers och nu senast nystarten av X-Men, men också hans egna titlar hos Image Comics, såsom East of West och The Manhattan Projects. Tyvärr har flera av hans serier på Image drabbats av långvariga förseningar, till exempel The Black Monday Murders och The Dying and the Dead, vilket är oerhört frustrerande. Detta öde har dock inte drabbat hans senaste titel, Decorum (tecknad av Mike Huddleston), och nu kommer äntligen hela serien ut i inbunden utgåva.

BLOOD-STAINED TEETH #1
Manus: Christian Ward
Illustration: Patric Reynolds

”Atticus Sloane—misanthrope, criminal, asshole, and vampire—lives in a world where blood isn’t the only thing vamps crave. And for the right price, he’ll make you a vampire too. After all, immortality isn’t cheap.”

Intresse:
Kommentar: Christian Ward är en fenomenal tecknare som bland annat samarbetat med Matt Fraction (Ody-C) och G. Willow Wilson (Invisible Kingdom) men han har också skrivit manus till Machine Gun Wizard (tecknad av Sami Kivelä) samt den nya titeln Blood-Stained Teeth där han tillsammans med tecknaren Patric Reynolds levererar en actionpackad kriminalhistoria i 100 Bullets-stil med vampyrer.

DARK HORSE COMICS

BREAK OUT #1
Manus: Zack Kaplan
Illustration: Wilton Santos

”When massive cube spaceships from another dimension materialize over our cities and routinely abduct teenagers to be held inside their mysterious floating prisons, Liam Watt’s younger brother, Tommy, is taken. But while governments and adults across the world accept this loss as inevitable, Liam refuses to give up hope. Now, in a ”take back our future” anthem, Liam assembles a skilled team of ordinary high school students to risk it all–but can they pull off the impossible and succeed in an out-of-this-world prison break?”

Intresse:
Kommentar: Zack Kaplan (Port of Earth, Join the Future) presenterar ett science fiction-äventyr där kubliknande rymdskepp kidnappar Jordens tonåringar och de enda som verkar bry sig är ett team av high school-elever som klarat sig.

THE BRITISH PARANORMAL SOCIETY: TIME OUT OF MIND #1
Manus: Mike Mignola, Chris Roberson
Illustration: Andrea Mutti

”British Paranormal Society members Simon Bruttenholm and Honora Grant arrive at Noxton together, but with separate goals: Honora hopes to uncover information on the town’s strange traditions, while Simon is searching for his missing assistant. But their separate investigations lead down the same twisted path that hides a dark secret behind Noxton’s innocent façade! Mike Mignola and Chris Roberson expand the Hellboy universe with a spooky new tale featuring art by Andrea Mutti with colors by Quinton Winter.”

Intresse: 3

Intresse: 3
Kommentar: Dan Panosian och Giorgio Spalletta presenterar en skruvad uppföljare till Alice i Underlandet.
