Bold and Heartfelt: New Black Mask Ongoing Series 'Destiny, NY' Coming from Pat Shand and Manuel Preitano,

 What if there was a magical prophecy that you were destined to save the world, and you fulfilled it so young you don’t know what to do with the rest of your life?     That’s the problem facing Logan McBride in DESTINY, NY, the ongoing comic book series launching in March 2021 from Black Mask Studios, the Los Angeles-based indie publisher of acclaimed titles including CALEXIT, LOUD, 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK, KIM & KIM, and BLACK. Together, writer Pat Shand (Black Mask’s SNAP FLASH HUSTLE), artist Manuel Preitano (DC Comics’ THE ORACLE CODE), and cover artists Elisa Romboli (upcoming ALICE IN LEATHERLAND) and Rosi Kämpe (SPIDER-GWEN) have created a grounded story about the magic of young adulthood, star-crossed modern romance, delayed coming of age, and finding your place in a world too busy to notice you. “Destiny, NY is a story about what happens next.

EXTENDED PREVIEW:'Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy' #2 by Jody Houser, Adriana Melo, Mark Morales and Hi-Fi

It’s a battle for the Green that is likely to leave a lot of people black and blue in this frantic first look at this week’s 'Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy' #2.


Harley Quinn thought she had lost her soulmate Poison Ivy during the events of Heroes in Crisis and she…um, didn’t handle it very well. So, how do you think she’s going to take someone threatening Ivy a few weeks after she gets her back?

If you’re thinking that’s likely to go over about as well as a mallet to the skull, you’re on the right track as we quickly discover in the second issue of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, the new miniseries spinning out of Tom King’s recently collected title. Dr. Jason Woodrue, perhaps better known these days as the Floronic Man, has shown up mere moments after Ivy started feeling more like her old self—thanks to one of Lex Luthor’s mysterious “gifts”—but he’s in no mood to congratulate Ivy on her recovery. Rather, he sees the Gotham City siren as the very thing that will allow him to finally take control of the Parliament of Flowers. Unfortunately, for that to happen, he’ll have to eat Ivy.

I mean, they say we should be moving to more plant-based diets, but I’m not sure this is the best way to go about that. Especially since Harley’s not likely to react well to seeing someone important to her that she just got back from death eaten by a creepy, bark-faced psychopath with a weird name. As for Ivy, she’s not about to go down without a fight either, and she’s now stronger than ever before as we discover in this bruising, branching preview of Wednesday’s Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy #2.
