NEW COMIC BOOKS TODAY: Notable New Releases for July 9, 2014

New Comics 7/9 by Slidely Slideshow

Some fantastic choices today on comics and trade paperbacks. DC Comics doesn't always make the best decisions. The New 52 books is a good example as most books that started the company-wide reboot have gone to the dusty bookshelf in the sky. They are still trying to innovate a little and shake things up. Debuting today is Grayson #1 by Tim Seely and Mikel Janin. Dick has hung up his (night) wings and is now playing super spy. At the very least it provides for some new exciting stories with a fan favorite at its center.

DC is also restarting Suicide Squad #1 with a new creative team and some new members. Sean Ryan and Jeremy P. Roberts will be responsible for this new international team as they head to Russia.  

Joshua Hale Fialkov and Gabo make an impressive debut with The Life After #1. The story of an unmotivated worker drone who finally takes a risk and lands himself in a realm between heaven and hell. A potential gem of a series so get on this now.

Justin Jordan and Kyle Strahm debut with The Spread #1 at Image Comics. An intriguing dystopian monster story that should be a monthly thrill ride. 

Fan favorite Spider-Man 2009 returns in a new ongoing series from Peter David and Will Sliney. More Spider-Man as the 100th Anniversary issue is out from Sean Ryan and In-Hyuk Lee

Marc Andreyko takes a break from Batwoman to reboot Chaos character Chastity for Dynamite. 

Two must-have trades come out today. Rocket Girl Vol. 1 from Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder. A fun time-traveling adventure involving a teenage cop from the future in New York. It's a steal at $9.99 for a great story and amazing artwork. 

Justice League of America Vol. 1 collects issues #1-5 from Geoff Johns and David Finch. A team built solely to counter the Justice League "just in case" the need ever arises to put them down. A far more interesting group of heroes in Vibe, Catwoman, Martian Manhunter, Stargirl, Green Arrow and Green Lantern. 

Enjoy your new comics!

REVIEW: 'Bonehead' #2 by Bryan Edward Hill, Rhoald Marcellius, and Sakti Yuwono

Bryan Hill pumps the brakes a little in the follow up to the fast-paced debut of 'Bonehead' with more great world building. The mystery surrounding Bonehead 56 deepens but we at least get some backstory and details about what his arrival means for a pair of brothers with opposing viewpoints.


BONEHEAD #2   
Writer: Bryan Edward Hill Artist: Rhoald Marcellius, Sakti Yuwono Letterer: Jaka Ady Graphics: Comolo Editor: Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: January 31, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99

REVIEW: 'Hit-Girl' #1 by Mark Millar and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz

Hit-Girl is most certainly back and as deadly and crazy as ever. She's gone international looking to fight injustice and find a worthy sidekick. Mark Millar is in top form with help from artists Ricardo Lopez Ortiz and Sunny Gho. The heart of the Kick-Ass legacy lives on as bloody and as thrilling as you remember.


HIT-GIRL #1
Writer: Mark Millar Artist: Ricardo Lopez Ortiz, Sunny Gho Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: February 21, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★★ (5/5)
The retirement of Dave Lizewki as the original Kick-Ass has left a void in Mindy's crime-fighting life. Trying to recruit his replacement has been challenging to say the least. She's going to go it alone and taking her skills global as a cry for help leads her to Colombia.

Millar hits the floor running with a wild prison break, Mindy parting ways with an unworthy partner, and a grieving mother looking for justice. The sudden blitz back to the world of Kick-Ass is like comfort food for comic book fans. …
