DC Comics:

TEEN TITANS: RAVEN TP
written by KAMI GARCIA
art and cover by GABRIEL PICOLO
When a tragic accident takes the life of seventeen-year-old Raven Roth’s foster mom—and Raven’s memory—she moves to New Orleans to live with her foster mother’s family and finish her senior year of high school.
Starting over isn’t easy. Raven remembers how to solve math equations and make pasta, but she can’t remember her favorite song or who she was before the accident. When strange things start happening—things most people would consider impossible—Raven starts to think it might be better not to know who she was in her previous life.
But as she grows closer to her foster sister, Max, her new friends, and Tommy Torres, a guy who accepts her for who she is now, Raven has to decide if she’s ready to face what’s buried in the past…and the darkness building inside her.
From the #1 New York Times best-selling co-author of Beautiful Creatures Kami Garcia and artist Gabriel Picolo comes this first graphic novel in the Teen Titans series for DC Ink, Teen Titans: Raven.

Kommentar: Denna är aningen mer spännande än alla andra tie-ins till War Of The Realms (med tanke på att jag tycker väldigt illa om event och tie-ins) eftersom författaren är Jason Aaron själv och att giganten Andrea Sorrentino står för bilderna. Dessutom är Daredevil allt som oftast intressant.

SIX DAYS: THE INCREDIBLE TRUE STORY OF D-DAY’S LOST CHAPTER HC
written by ROBERT VENDITTI and KEVIN MAURER
art and cover by ANDREA MUTTI
June 1944. World War II. D-Day. One hundred eighty two members of the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division parachute into the French countryside—a full 18 miles southeast of their intended target. This original graphic novel from DC Vertigo is the true story of an obscure World War II battle that took place in the small village of Graignes, France, for six days and the men who survived to tell the tale.
In the worst misdrop of the D-Day campaign, a group of soldiers are rattled to the core to find themselves even deeper behind enemy lines than anyone had intended. Miraculously, the citizens of Graignes vote to feed and shelter the soldiers, knowing that the decision will bring them terrible punishment if their efforts are discovered by the Germans. That day of reckoning comes faster than anyone could expect.
As a small German militia passes through, the world’s war comes to their remote town in the countryside, and for the next six days, the small band of American paratroopers and French citizens must fight for their lives to hold back 2,000 enemy combatants.
Six Days is a true story of survival, loyalty, the brutality of war, and a triumph of the human spirit so rarely brought to the comics form. Writers Kevin Maurer (the #1 New York Times bestseller No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden) and Robert Venditti (Green Lantern)—whose uncle fought in the Battle of Graignes and is a key character in the tale—completed comprehensive archival research in preparation for this unbelievable untold story of World War II.

MARY SHELLEY MONSTER HUNTER #1 (AFTERSHOCK COMICS)
(W) Adam Glass, Olivia Briggs (A/CA) Hayden Sherman
For nearly two centuries, scholars have wondered how on earth Mary Shelley, a nineteen-year-old girl, was able to conjure one of the most frightening and enduring horror stories of all-time: Frankenstein.
But with the recent discovery of Mary Shelley’s secret memoir, the truth is finally revealed: Mary Shelley didn’t just write Frankenstein, she lived it. Traveling back to that historic Geneva winter of 1816, Mary, her fiancé Percy, sisters Claire and Fanny, and the celebrated poet Lord Byron, find themselves guests of the eerie Frankenstein Estate. The macabre and frightening events that follow lead Mary to both a gruesome and shocking discovery. Their mysterious host is not at all what they expected, and their intentions will change the course of Mary’s life for-ever.

Brought to life by Adam Glass (ROUGH RIDERS, THE NORMALS, THE LOLLIPOP KIDS) and Olivia Briggs (E TV’s The Arrangement) with art by Hayden Sherman (COLD WAR, The Few, Wasted Space), Mary Shelley: Monster Hunter is historical fiction at its most (After)shocking!

ORPHAN AGE #1 (AFTERSHOCK COMICS)
(W) Ted Anderson (A/CA) Nuno Plati
One day all the adults died, all over the world, at the same time.
Now it’s twenty years later, and the children – all grown up – are still rebuilding the world. Horses and caravans are the only thin lines connecting tiny, scattered settlements – little sparks in the great dark night. Gasoline is gone, phones long-dead, television a memory. The only power in America is the New Church, the religion of the angry children, that blames the destruction of the old world on the dead adults.
In the settlement of Dallastown, a stranger comes riding in one day, telling a story of escape from the New Church’s unstoppable Firemen. The Church is on the march, and the world might burn again – and the only hope might be a scared teenage girl, a gunslinger keeping his secrets, and a woman of few words and long knives. Welcome to the Orphan Age.

Now the youngest child in the family is convinced his paralyzed father didn’t truly fall ill but is possessed by something sinister. He believes a demon, THE REPLACER, has come to take away his jolly, agreeable, tech-obsessed Dad. But no one seems to see the monster – and with every passing day, his father falls deeper into the clutches of evil.
Based on Zac Thompson’s true story of coming to terms with a disabled parent, THE RE-PLACER is a complete 64-page graphic meditation on loss, tragedy and fear told through the eyes of a nine-year-old – a horror tale about learning to walk again, even if a demon has to teach you how to do it. A bizarre mashup of IT, The Exorcist and The Diving Bell and The Butterfly, with stunning visuals by Arjuna Susini (Made Men), THE REPLACER is not for the faint of heart.

Kommentar: Jag är ganska förtjust i denna här typen av berättelser där övernaturligt korsas med hanteringen av emotionella problem. Där skräcken främst ligger i rädslan för det verkliga och mer svåruppklarade.

FAITHLESS #1 (OF 5) (BOOM! STUDIOS)

FEB191249

(W) Brian Azzarello (A) Maria Llovet (CA) Paul Pope

Faith. Sex. The Devil.
Faith likes to dabble with magic. Her friends think it’s cute-and not just a little off-putting, but it’s part of her charm and her warped search for purpose in a world that makes too much sense. But she’s a true believer and knows there is a power within her reach. She’s right, of course. It just took a while for that magic, that temptation, that unknowable thing to find her . . .
In short- Faith is bored as hell. And Hell has noticed.
New York Times bestselling writer Brian Azzarello ( 100 Bullets , Batman: Damned ) and artist Maria Llovet ( Loud ) with Eisner Award winning artist Paul Pope on covers coalesce in a story of self-exploration, eroticism, and maybe even love.

Kommentar: Denna kombinerar så mycket som drar in mig. Om att hitta sig själv, undersöka sex och sexualitet genom att koppla ihop det med magi och tro. Har varit sugen på att utforska Llovets serier sen jag hörde om henne för några månader sen och är den som drar in mig mest. Azzarello har riktigt bra höjder, men är ojämn och jag undrar hur bra han kan hantera det sexuella materialet utan att det blir ”male gazey” som en del av hans serier haft en släng av tidigare. Jag är dock mycket beredd att bli motbevisad.

Hoppas att ni har hittat något bra (även bland sådant jag sågat) och Comics Of Future Past återvänder i slutet på nästa månad.

    Mina favoriter för april månad är fortsättningen på ”Descender”, det vill säga ”Ascender”, och fortsättningen på ”She Could Fly”, som jag tycker är en av förra årets bästa titlar. Mest av allt ser jag dock fram emot den efterlängtade sista arcen av Jonathan Hickmans ”The Black Monday Murders” där varje nummer kommer att innehålla 64 sidor. Mums!
