Buy/Bid – Edge of Venomverse #3

Buy/Bid – Venom 13.4

Buy/Bid – Weapon X #6

Buy/Bid – 1st Appearance Weapon H

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For each issue that arrives within the Edge of Venonverse, we will keep a constant reminder of how one of these issue could be a potential major breakout for a new mash-up character. This week’s Edge of Venomverse #3 is no exception. The introduction of Host Rider. That’s Ghost Rider and Venom mashed-up for those not in the know. Although this really isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Venom host take over Johnny Blaze. Back in 2012, the story-line ‘Circle of Four’ in Venom #13.4 saw the host take over and combine the Red Hulk with Ghost Rider. Red Hulk Rider? Ghost Hulk? Yes, this really happened. Bottom line, get each issue of the Edge of Venomverse as they arrive. You never know when one of these mash-ups will explode in the aftermarket, if ever. More importantly though, you’re getting a sweet story and art by Tigh Walker.
Batch X makes its move of several players in Weapon X #6. Weapon H (aka Hulk/Wolverine) will be arriving soon so says Marvel in Totally Awesome Hulk #22. This comic, with that ridiculous title still, will be flying off the shelf when it arrives. Get an early jump on Ebay right HERE (some available early). As always, from ALL available Ebay sellers.

We saw it on some new release sheet someplace, but it could be a re-release or an older book. Who cares though? Still a cool book.
In case you haven’t noticed lately or maybe in the last few years actually, Valiant Entertainment are strictly bull market. Google ‘bull market’ if you do not get the reference, but yes Valiant is moving onward and upward. Searching for a comic with great art? Great storytelling?

As the new Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 movie hits, so does a new GOTG comic book(s) and cash cow Disney. Marvel will go on a twice monthly schedule with the ‘All-New’ title. The All-New Guardians Of The Galaxy #1 is brought to you by writer Gerry Duggan and artist Aaron Kuder. The same Wednesday sees an all-star duo on Guardians of the Galaxy: Mother Entropy #1, writer Jim Starlin and artist Alan Davis. You have a movie to watch and two comics to buy.
Black Bolt gets his first solo series this week; Black Bolt #1, written by Saladin Ahmed and art by Christian Ward. We cannot help ourselves but to say, this series will come to a halt soon enough. Not because of anything bad really, but when the Inhumans television series comes out, a new number one will be presented. It’ll be (insert sarcasm here) Black Bolts’ second solo series!
Fanboys can begin their descend upon that mountain-top since climbing up there quite a few months ago. Secret Empire #1 comes out this Wednesday. Well the descend will be a bit slow because Marvel will probably push the proverbial envelope just a tad more before finally bringing Cap back to the Jedi side. The dark side has not only consumed our beloved Steve Rogers, but the fanbase have lost their minds dealing with Cap playing for Hydra this whole time, thus bring them to a dark place in their lives. Here’s the thing, and we were the first to say it when Steve uttered those words ‘ Hail Hydra’. Storytelling is subjective guys/gals. Anyone can devise a story and bring it forward, as long as it brings fannies back to the book to turn that page. Besides it doesn’t really matter at the end of the day because, we all know Cap is true Red, White and Blue and he will in fact be back eventually. Can we all relax a bit here? Let the story play out. Wait for the big hoopla 51 variant covers from Captain America’s new number one issue. It’s the 51 variants fans should be more annoyed about. Secret Empire #1; writer Nick Spencer, art Steve McNiven.
So many debuts from Marvel this week. Jean Grey #1; written by Dennis Hopeless and art by Victor Ibanez.
Spider-Gwen #19 will introduce a new character. Jason Latour (writer) and Robbi Rodriguez (artist) still doing their Spider-Gwen thing.

Bane begins a twelve-issue maxi-series. (The 80’s old timers will know what a maxi-series is). Bane Conquest #1 written by Chuck Dixon and art by Graham Nolan.

Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood is coming back. The original Youngblood #1 came out in 1992. That’s 25 years ago. Feel old yet? The new series is written by Chad Bowers and art by Jim Towe. Artist Jim Towe is a a newbie in this business. His first comic book work (minus the hardcover book) came in December of 2016; Cyberforce Artifacts #0.

Lenore creator Roman Dirge in hit-and-run accident.

Roman Dirge, creator of the darkly funny series, LENORE, along with his girlfriend, were the victims of a hit-and-run accident late last month.  TITAN BOOKS, the current publishers of imagesCA0LRK4ULENORE have issued the following statement, including his status, and a link where fans can donate support for his medical bills.  Also included is a comment from Roman himself.

Roman Dirge, creator and illustrator of the Lenore comic book series, and his girlfriend Amber were injured in a hit-and-run accident in Hollywood, CA, on February 26, 2013. One of Dirge’s legs was severely damaged, but he is said to be in good spirits despite facing a long recovery.
As a long time collaborator with Roman on his many exceptional projects, we at Titan Entertainment Group wish to offer him good health and a speedy recovery. We would also love to spread the word that Roman’s friend’s and family have set up a fund to help him with his medical bills as they will be exceedingly large.
If you are a fan of Roman’s work and would like to wish him all the best by making a contribution- please visit Give Forward at the link below:

Here’s a comment from Roman himself:

“I’m a self employed artist and I do not have insurance. The bills will start arriving next week, which I assume will add up to the cost of a small private island. One of my good friends set up a donation page to help with this. Believe  me, anything helps. I’ve been blown away by the outpouring of support from friends, fans and family. I thank everyone, from the bottom of my jerky-like heart, and I’m just so thankful of everything.” – Roman Dirge

Titan Books To Publish the Definitive Flash Gordon Library

Titan Books has announced the publication of The Complete Flash Gordon Library. Compiling every strip and every story, this series of restored full-color hardcover volumes will showcase the action and artistry that thrilled audiences for decades.

Everyone knows Flash Gordon–the most iconic science fiction swashbuckler ever to burst forth from the newspaper pages. His adventures wielded so much energy that they inspired everyone who followed, no matter what the medium. Filmmaker George Lucas famously revealed, “Growing up in California, I was enchanted by two things…race cars and Flash Gordon. The first love I put to use in American Graffiti, the second eventually turned into Star Wars.” 
 
Flash Gordon first hit superstardom in 1934 with his comic strip adventures, which continued unabated for seven decades. His influence spread like wildfire into every medium–films, television, novels, comic books, radio plays, and more. Every generation has had its incarnation of the character, and yet another major motion picture is reported to be in the works. 
 
The mission of The Complete Flash Gordon Library will be to collect every strip and every story, offering them in affordable, full-color hardcover volumes, carefully restored and revealing the action and the artistry that thrilled audiences for decades. Through the painstaking efforts of renowned comic strip historian Pete Maresca, readers will experience the heroics of Flash Gordon, the beauty of Dale Arden, the evil of Ming the Merciless, and the exotic setting of the distant planet Mongo. Each installment will be meticulously reworked so that the intricate artwork, the vivid colors, and the unparalleled action will explode off of the page. 
 
Beginning with the renowned stories written and illustrations by Alex Raymond–the genius behind the hero–The Complete Flash Gordon Library will continue with the other brilliant illustrators who took the helm and ran with his creation: Austin Briggs, Mac Raboy, Dan Barry, and many more. Each page will be 11″ x 10″ — specifically designed to spotlight the action-packed artistry of the creators, and each volume will feature 176 or more pages of full-color action. Volume One, “On the Planet Mongo,” will feature a foreword by renowned illustrator Alex Ross, and future installments will offer other special features revealing the secrets behind the strip and its creators.

 
The Complete Flash Gordon Library joins Titan’s other long-running newspaper strip collections including the critically acclaimed  Simon and Kirby Library, and the Modesty Blaise and James Bond 007 series. Once the library is complete, readers will forever thrill to an epic adventure unparalleled in American popular culture.
