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: 'Crosswind' #2 by Gail Simone and Cat Staggs

Chicago hitman Cason Bennett and mousy Seattle housewife Juniper Blue have inexplicably switched bodies and lives. A mysterious stranger has called them each to tell them they have to play the game. 'Crosswind' by Gail Simone and Cat Staggs is a juicy satisfying crime fantasy that sizzles with intrigue.


CROSSWIND #2 Story: Gail Simone Art / Cover / Variant Cover: Cat Staggs Published: July 26, 2017 Diamond ID: MAY170671 Digital : $3.99 Print: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
The mind-breaking crime fantasy continues! Slick Chicago hitman Cason Bennett and mousy Seattle housewife Juniper Blue have inexplicably switched bodies and lives, and a heartless, relentless killer seems intent on killing them both. Don't miss this edge-of-your-seat thriller by fan-favorites GAIL SIMONE and CAT STAGGS!
Cason and Juniper are forced to play their new roles in their new bodies. Juniper has to clean up a bloody crime scene from the end of the last issue and Cason has to make a killer dinner for Jun…

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: 'Genius: Cartel' #1 (of 5) by Adam Freeman, Marc Bernardin, and Rosi Kampe

"Seventeen-year-old Destiny Ajaye took on the LAPD in her South Central Siege and paid for it-not with her life, but with her freedom. Now, Destiny is sequestered in the Madrasa Institute, a government school for prodigies. But will she use her gifts to wage war at the military's behest-or is she already planning another revolution?"


GENIUS: CARTEL #1 (OF 5) Story: Adam Freeman, Marc Bernardin Art / Cover: Rosi Kampe Colorist: Brad Simpson Letterer: Troy Peteri Published: August 16, 2017 Diamond ID: JUN170655 Digital : $3.99 Print: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
As you can imagine it hasn't been an easy transition from street-level revolutionary to government think tank subject. Destiny Ajaye is frankly too smart, too many steps ahead of the class to find the black ops simulations stimulating. It also drives her crazy that her field boss doesn't listen to her suggestions resulting in disastrously executed operations. But what is a teenage prodigy to do when your only ch…

KICKSTARTER SPOTLIGHT: 'Death Metal Zombie Cop' Issue #1 by Felipe Smith

A Superstar LAPD Rookie (Marco Miranda) & his disillusioned Training Officer (Rhonda Riley) discover that a corruption-plagued Justice System and the tightening stranglehold of the Drug Cartel are just the tip of the iceberg when L.A.'s deadliest Urban Legend reveals itself to be very REAL.


The creator who brought Robbie Reyes, the All-New Ghost Rider, back to life for Marvel is back with another high-octane adventure with his Kickstarter passion project, Death Metal Zombie Cop. If the title alone doesn't grab you then check out the amazing art. 


DEATH METAL ZOMBIE COP is an Action/Horror comic originally conceived in Japan (shortly after ending serialization of PEEPO CHOO with Kodansha) & now made in Los Angeles. It's infused with Dark Humor, real LAPD situations, West Coast slice-of-life antics, and over 5 years worth of development and HEART!
