NEW COMIC BOOK DAY: Notable Releases for 4/27/16


This week in comics we say goodbye to the superstar team of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo as the creative force behind DC Comic's flagship series 'Batman.' The comic book that keeps the #2 comic book publisher afloat and relevant will usher in a new era with Tom King and artists David Finch and Mikel Janin after today's #51 issue. Not to worry though, Snyder will remain in the Bat-verse as writer on 'All-Star Batman' with art by John Romita, Jr., Jock, Sean Murphy and others. Capullo will be working with Mark Millar on a creator-owned project. The talented duo have already cemented their place in comic book lore with one of the best runs in the Batman's history. Get their last issue today.

Also, check out this week's recommendations of notable new releases as well as this week's musical slideshow featuring the music of the legendary Prince who passed away too soon.

REVIEW: 'Spencer and Locke' #1 by David Pepose, Jorge Santiago, and Jasen Smith

★★★★★ (5/5)
It takes some courage and confidence to take one of the most beloved comic strips ever and reinvent it as a dark crime noir comic. Yet, David Pepose and Jorge Santiago, Jr. find a way to honor Bill Watterson's seminal work while creating a pulpy murder mystery that stands on its own. 

'Calvin and Hobbes' follows the humorous antics of Calvin, a precocious, mischievous, and adventurous six-year-old boy, and Hobbes, his sardonic stuffed tiger. In that same vein, Spencer is a stuffed panther that Detective Locke carries with him, apparently unnoticed by others, and interacts with him as they investigate the murder of Locke's grade school love. Pepose walks a thin line between parody and drama but finds the perfect balance in tone and dialogue. The scenes with Spencer and Locke conversing are humorous but doesn't overstep the importance of the investigation. In fact, the story is dark and only lightened by Spencer's observations and the flashbacks but tho…

'Bingo Love' Graphic Novella Offers New Gail Simone Kickstarter Stretch Goal

The Kickstarter campaign for the Inclusive Press graphic novella, Bingo Love, by Tee “Vixen” Franklin, Jenn St. Onge and Joy San was fully funded in 5 days, and now with just a week to go, is celebrating with new tiers and stretch goals. Backers of this warm-hearted romance about two Queer Black women rediscovering their love for each other after decades apart, can now receive two softcover copies of Bingo Love for a $44 pledge or donate copies to LGBTQ youth centers. 



Bingo Love is currently over 210% funded and quickly approaching $45k. Once Bingo Love reaches $60k, digital and physical backers will receive a short story, set in the Bingo Love world, written by Gail Simone (Clean Room, Batgirl, Secret Six).

"It is not exaggeration to say this [Bingo Love] is absolutely going to be a smash," said Simone. "It's one of the best comics of the year. I ADORE IT TO PIECES."

During the third week of the Kickstarter, it was announced that Tee "Vixen" Franklin…

REVIEW: 'Karma Police' #1 by Chris Lewis, Tony Gregori, and Jasen Smith

★★★1/2 (3.5/5)
The monks of the Karma Grove Monastery try to ease spiritual suffering and promote peace, but when an evil that spans lifetimes challenges them, they’ll have to call upon their skills to liberate it from existence.

Karma Police is a unique story that positions monks as a sort of evil spirit-busters. The world is under siege and only a reincarnated Buddhist master and her elder can cleanse the world of them. A flashback sets the stage for what happens in the present. The duo is tasked with hunting down a major threat and it leads them to a strip club in Oregon, naturally. There is a certain sense of fun and quirkiness that shows Chris Lewis isn't taking it all too seriously.

The result is a colorful universe that includes a possessed toddler, luchador demons, and fiendish strippers.  There's also an enchanted dagger from her previous incarnation’s bloody past. She’ll have to resist its power and concentrate on stopping the reckless spirits from any more violence.
