COMIC BOOK DAY: Notable New Releases 11/19

new comics 11/19 by Slidely Slideshow

This week's comic book offerings include some of the best horror stories in the business - Goners #2, Criminal Macabre: The Third Child #3, and Afterlife with Archie Magazine #2. Each with their own spin on suspense and gore. There's never been a greater time to be a fan of supernatural storytelling. 

Meredith and David Finch take over Wonder Woman this week in issue #36. After the incredible run of Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang to reboot the Amazon warrior for the New 52 the Finchs have large shoes to fill. The veteran creators should be up to the task. 

Harley Quinn #12 continues to dominate the sales chart for DC Comics while Ray Fawkes debuts Intersect #1, Michael Avon Oeming releases Sinergy #1 for Image and Dennis Hopeless unleashes Spider-Woman #1 for Marvel.

As far as trades go, Greg Rucka's Lazarus The First Collection covers the first 9 issues of the acclaimed series in a hardcover edition. Jeff Lemire reinvents the Teen Titans in the highly anticipated Earth One Teen Titans Volume One.

Happy reading!

REVIEW: 'Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman' #6 by Andy Mangels and Judit Tondora

The series has been great fun but for fans of the original Wonder Woman TV series starring Lynda Carter and the Bionic Woman starring Lyndsey Wagner it's been a time machine to what could have been when these two iconic heroines meet.


WONDER WOMAN '77 MEETS THE BIONIC WOMAN #6  Writer: Andy Mangels Artist: Judit Tondora Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment Release Date: September 20, 2017 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
 Andy Mangels and Judit Tondora have put together a sprawling crossover event that faithfully captures the tone and aesthetic of the 1970's shows. Often complicated and full of exposition, the camaraderie between Diana and Jamie is genuine and to see them in action makes the cover price worth every penny. Bringing together not only the titular heroes but incorporating their respective supporting characters like Wonder Girl and combining villains was no easy feat but Mangels and Tondora pull it off with enthusiasm and precision.
The plot to use Fembots to…

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

CROSSWIND #4 Writer: Gail Simone Artist: Cat Staggs Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: September 27, 2017 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
The last issue was a satisfying chapter but things get inevitably messier.
