Take It On The Run With Spurrier and Gooface’s Godshaper #1 in April 2017

BOOM! Studios has announced Godshaper, an all-new monthly comic book series from Eisner Award-nominated writer Simon Spurrier and rising-star artist Jonas Goonface in April 2017 as two unlikely friends embark on the ultimate road trip to escape their past and shape their own futures.

Discover a world where super-powered gods have replaced technology, and every human has a private, guardian-deity of their very own…though unfortunately for Ennay, some exceptions apply. Men and women like him are Shapers: born godless, but with the ability to mold and recalibrate the gods of others. Paired with Bud, a friendly deity without a human, they go on the road looking for food, shelter, and a paying gig. Despite their efforts to keep a low profile, Ennay and Bud stumble upon a mystery that will have lasting ramifications for god and man alike.

Godshaper #1 will feature a main cover by Goonface, along with a variant cover by Sonny Liew.

ComiXology Originals Launches Today with Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular

atmls_coverComiXology launches their comiXology Originals program today with the fun, all-ages title Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular from BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network Enterprises. Unveiled last October, comiXology Originals is a new program featuring exclusive comic content available only on comiXology and Kindle. Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular is available today for $3.99 on comiXology and Kindle or free at launch to comiXology Unlimited subscribers and as part of the comiXology Unlimited 30-day free trial.

Based on Cartoon Network’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Adventure Time, the Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular from BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network Enterprises features the fan-favorite character Marshall Lee, the Vampire King. Marshall Lee is the male counterpart of Marceline the Vampire Queen from the hugely popular Fionna and Cake universe.

Framed by a fully painted cover by cartoonist Fábio Moon, the 22-page Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular contains three all-new original Marshall Lee stories and an original song:

  • “Not Funny” by writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Audrey Mok. The lead story features New York Times bestselling writer Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer, Supergirl) with artist Audrey Mok (Josie and the Pussycats) and follows Marshall Lee and his uncontrollable laughter at unfunny things.atmls_its_hard_not_to_be_bad_preview
  • “The Bravest Prince” by Melanie Gillman and artist Trungles. Writer Melanie Gillman (As the Crow Flies) teams up with artist Trungles (Fresh Romance) for a story in which Prince Gumball witnesses Marshall Lee’s fear of…flowers.
  • “Disqualified” by S.M. Vidaurri and artist Asia Kendrick-Horton. Writer S.M. Vidaurri (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches) joins with artist Asia Kendrick-Horton (Steven Universe) for a story in which Prince Gumball attempts to win a competition by trying to be more villainous than Marshall Lee.
  • “It’s Not Hard To Be Bad” Written and drawn by S.M. Vidaurri. Vidaurri closes out the issue by composing a song for Marshall Lee to sing while playing guitar in a spectacular one pager.

In addition to this exciting launch, comiXology is having a BOOM! Studios discount sale on an array of Adventure Time comic books and trades. Readers new and old can stock up and save today through January 23rd.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

div3-aric_001_cover-b_bernardWednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Joe

Top Pick: Kill or Be Killed #5 (Image) – Ed Brubaker, Elizabeth Breitweiser, and Sean Phillips are back and I cannot be more excited. They have done a tremendous job on this book and have proven once again, they hold the crown for pulp crime comics. This comic has me nervous and excited each time a new issue comes out!

U.S.Avengers #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was such a blast, and Al Ewing is on a roll lately, and one of the best things Marvel has going for it. We will see more of the Gold $kull by the looks of it, and probably go a bit deeper on this whacky team. More Red Hulk, he’s great.

The Clone Conspiracy #4 (Marvel) – I am a massive Spider-Man fan, I won’t apologize for that, so therefore I am excited for this issue, and actually enjoy the event. Now obviously if you’re not enjoying what they are doing, don’t listen to me here, but I want to see how this wraps up, and we are almost there. We also get a double Spidey dose with Amazing Spider-Man this week!

Superman #15 (DC Comics) – You get a Superman! And you get a Superman! I’ve loved this run by Tomasi and Gleason and the last issue was so much fun and just crazy. This is one of DC’s most consistent comics and I want to see where they are going after the last wild issue. Also, Red Son Superman, Captain Carrot, and more!

Trinity #5 (DC Comics) – Francis Manapul should be reason enough for anyone to read and drool at this comic. His art is just completely on another level to me, and this book rivals The Mighty Thor for the “prettiest” comic. Also, I actually am enjoying the story of our legendary trinity quite a bit.

 

Alex

Top Pick: Divinity III Stalinverse: Aric Son Of The Revolution #1 (Valiant) – There’s a sense of something awesome about Valiant’s Divinity III, and while the first tie-in was good, it’s this one that has me most excited. Getting a chance to read some more about Aric of Dacia in this setting has me chomping at the bit to get my hands on the comic.

Harbinger Renegade #3 (Valiant) – What can I say? I’m a fan of Harbinger, and with Peter returning to Earth I’m looking forward to seeing how Rafer Roberts reunites the Renegades.

Deadpool the Duck #2 (Marvel) – When the first issue didn’t make me want to claw my eyes out, I kinda got curious to read the next issue. I mean… now that Deadpool The Duck is finally in the comic, I want to see what we get.

 

Brett

Motor Girl #3 (Abstract Studios) – Sam has problems. UFO’s are keeping her up every night, dropping in for parts and coffee, and a suspicious Area 51 fanatic is determined to catch it all on video. To make matters worse, the bank wants to repossess the junkyard and build a casino. But Sam is determined to stop them, especially when she learns the junkyard is sacred ground. This new series by Terry Moore is fun, funny, cute, and the first two issues are some of my recent favorites from anyone.

Curse Words #1 (Image) – A wizard comes to Earth to… conquer it? It’s a bit nebulous in this first issue that introduces is to Wizord, a hipster-ish wizard bringing realy magic to Earth. The first issue is entertaining and launches a stylish new series.

The Mighty Captain Marvel #1 (Marvel) – I think Carol Danvers really came off poorly in Civil War II, but I’m still interested in seeing where Marvel takes her and this series.

Monsters Unleashed #1 (Marvel) – Marvel heroes versus kaiju. Nuff said.

Revolutionaries #1 (IDW Publishing) – IDW and Hasbro’s “Revolution” is over and this series looks to bring together some of the characters from the now shared universe into a team book.

 

Shay

Harley Quinn #12 (DC Comics) – Joker + Harley = War of the Roses style mayhem.

Raven #5 (DC Comics) – Raven calls for familial back up to save San Francisco from the orb.

Gamora #2 (Marvel) – Gamora is on a collision course with revenge and things might not be what they seem or go as she planned.

SLAM! #3 (BOOM! Studios) – derby drama and love in comic book form, what more could you want?
