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.

ADVANCE REVIEW: 'Babyteeth' #1 by Donny Cates, Garry Brown, and Taylor Esposito

Donnie Cates is one busy man. As if writing two concurrent titles for Image Comics - Redneck and God Country - wasn't enough, Cates has found more time and inspiration to pen one for AfterShock Comics. That's where 'Babyteeth' #1 comes in. It's the latest page-turner from one of the hottest creators in comics.


★★★★★ (5/5)
This is Sadie Ritter's story. A first person account as told to her smartphone recording a video for her new offspring. The teenager recounts the incredible details leading to giving birth to the antichrist. That's right, the antichrist. At this point, you couldn't blame Cates for going hog wild with the supernatural fireworks from riding a wave of success and critical cache in his career. Instead, Cates shows some restraint adhering to some professional discipline and lets the story unfold quietly. 
With any pregnancy, there's enough anxiety and stress to deal with. Imagine your water breaking unexpectedly and having your older sis…

Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman are Back With The Sequel GENIUS: CARTEL

From writers Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman (Castle Rock, Alphas, X-Men Origins: Nightcrawler, The Authority, The Highwaymen) and rising-star artist Rosi Kampe, comes a sequel series that promises to set Destiny’s world—and ours—ablaze in GENIUS: CARTEL. The five-issue story arc is set to launch from Top Cow this August.


In GENIUS: CARTEL, 17-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 (Diamond Code JUN170655) hits stores on Wednesday, August 16th. The final order cutoff date for retailers is Monday, July 24th.

Read the first volume, Genius Volume 1 Trade Paperback by Marc Bernardin, Adam Freeman, and Afua Richardson from Amazon:


REVIEW: 'Wonder Woman ’77 Meets Bionic Woman' #4 by Andy Mangels, Judit Tondora, and Roland Pilcz

By this point, you have to love Wonder Woman and Bionic Woman as we enter issue four. Andy Mangels and Judit Tondora have brought not only a nostalgic crossover of television icons together but a great duo of heroic and kind-hearted women with great respect for each other and justice.


★★★★☆ (4/5)
The heart and joy of 'Wonder Woman '77 Meets the Bionic Woman' #4 is seeing Jamie Sommers being welcomed to Paradise Island as Wonder Woman brings her home for a visit. It's a scene fans may not have ever imagined before this comic arrived but get to relish the love and hospitality of the Amazons. The beauty of crossovers like this is making things that seemed impossible possible. Two characters from different worlds brought together to fight a malicious menace that combines the idiosyncracies of each into one fantastic fun read. 
Along with Diana's mother, Queen Hippolyta, we get to see a couple of fan favorites from the television series. Drusilla, played by Debra Winger …
