Revolutionaries #1

THE REVOLUTION MAY BE OVER–but the future is just beginning! Ripped from the pages of the hottest crossover of the year, the REVOLUTION team of John Barber and Fico Ossio continue the action! KUP is a CYBERTRONIAN literally older than the universe; ACTION MAN is the ultimate special agent trying to live up to an impossible legacy; MAYDAY is a G.I. JOE leader trying to rescue her first command; and BLACKROCK is a CYBERTRONIAN that thinks he’s a human. It takes the mind-bending clash of ROM versus MAJOR BLUDD and the OKTOBER GUARD to bring this unlikely team together… and the secret they learn threatens to unravel the entire universe.

Revolutionaries #1 is for fans of IDW’s franchise lineup. All others will need to study up before reading.

Let’s start with the basics: the art is wel...

Box Office Poison Color Comics #1

The story of Sherman, Dorothy, Ed, Stephen, Jane, and Mr. Flavor as you’ve never seen it before: IN FULL COLOR! Alex Robinson’s masterpiece of dreary jobs, comic books, love, sex, messy apartments, girlfriends (and the lack thereof), undisclosed pasts, and crusty old professionals remains one of the most delightful and whimsical comic stories—and with colorist Pat N. Lewis’ fantastic color work, BOP is ready to return to comic stands!

First as a quick note, you can get the original B&W version in one complete volume at – IDW – Box Office Poison

I say this because it’s better value to buy the black and white version for 30 dollars versus paying 75 dollars for the 19 colored issues they will produce.  And that raises another interesting point...

G.I. Joe #1

G.I. JOE IS BACK! In the wake of IDW’s Revolution crossover event, G.I. JOE’s mission has become a global one–they aren’t just Real American Heroes, they’re Real Earth Heroes. Get ready for an explosive, innovative take on Joe, as writer Aubrey Sitterson (Street Fighter x G.I. Joe) and artist Giannis Milonogiannis (Prophet, Old City Blues) bring you the crown jewel of the Hasbro Universe: lasers, intense sci-fi action, and the return of Scarlett, Roadblock, Snake Eyes and more!

This is an odd kind of a first issue.  I really am not caught up on the happenings of IDW’s Hasbro books, so I thought a first issue would be a good introduction to what they’re doing. It’s a bit of a surprise when the book starts with a “Previously” recap of the GI Joe story...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Kevin Eastman Notebook Series: Michelangelo

TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman has been making comics for 30 years—and across three decades he’s amassed mountains of developmental character sketches, script notes, page roughs, and even alternate pages. Along the way he’s created one-of-a-kind notebooks filled with the detritus of his process, entirely unique collections exploring the inner workings of his creative methods. But now these unattainable treasures are ready for fans far and wide, tirelessly reproduced from the original notebooks, and curated by the foremost TMNT authority in the world!

There are certain creative names that you automatically light up when you hear or see them. I think for many people, myself included, one of those names would have to be Kevin Eastman...
