New comics 7/16 

There's one shocking, albeit well publicized, event occurring today in comics with the death of Archie Andrews in Life with Archie #36 by Paul Kupperberg and Pat Kennedy. This series finale is already sold out in print so check with your local store or go online for digital copies. 


Harley Quinn Invades Comic-Con International San Diego #1 by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti is pretty self explanatory and a fun one-shot following her at the con trying to get her book published. It's only right that the best selling anti-hero is taking the industry by storm in print and in real life. 

After a delay Kurtis Wiebe and Roc Upchurch have Rat Queens #7 out today. The entertaining sassy maidens continue to battle some monstrous creatures while cracking wise. 

It seems every week there's a title by Frank J. Barbiere out and this week is no different. He along with artist Victor Santos debut a new book for BOOM! Studios entitled Black Market #1

The most exciting Star Wars title in comics, Darth Maul: Son of Darthomir is back with #3 as Maul and Dooku are forced to join together as Jedis are hot on their trail. Jeremy Barlow, Juan Frigeri, and Mauro Vargas have a hot series on their hands. 

There's also a batch of #1's debuting today. Take a look below for some notable new releases. Happy reading!

RAVEN YEAR 2 Begins: The Teenage Lesbian Pirate's Quest for Love and Vengeance

RAVEN is a pirate revenge adventure, a soap opera full of messy teenage love stories, and about a dozen coming of age stories set on the high seas. Think "Legend of Korra" at sea with an all female cast.


This series has one of the most diverse and exciting casts of any comic on the market. It's full of action, adventure, and revenge - but even more full of love stories and soap operas. RAVEN is one of the first YA comics with an openly gay leading lady. But on top of that, it has a cast of women who represent a wide spectrum of the LGBTQ community. It's equal parts soap opera and actual opera.
Writer Jeremy Whitley hopes readers experience "Joy, connection, and love" when reading this book. He goes on to say that "It's a book where different types of people are heroes than what we're used to, especially in YA fiction. I feel like everybody should be able to find at least one character they either relate to or fall in love with in the pages of t…

REVIEW: 'Postal' #21 by Bryan Hill, Isaac Goodhart, and K. Michael Russell

This wouldn't be 'Postal' without a major scheme in the works by someone in the criminal haven known as the town of Eden. The fact that it's coming from Mark and Maggie is the surprising part. Meanwhile, Laura has her hands full trying to maintain her grasp on the town. Bryan Hill and Isaac Goodheart bring another exciting chapter in this briskly paced issue.


POSTAL #21  Writer: Bryan Hill Artists: Isaac Goodhart, K. Michael Russell Letterer: Troy Peteri Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: July 26, 2017 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Watching Mark and Maggie coupled up is a little weird but feels right. After all the drama they've been through it would only seem just for them to finally come together. They've had a seemingly unbreakable bond amid a neo-Nazi attack, the murders of the psychopathic daughter of the FBI director, and a near rebellion against Mark as the interim mayor. With all that out of the way, Mark and Maggie can finally decompress. How…
