INTRODUCING THE IRREDEEMABLE WASP!
Renowned colorist and writer Jordie Bellaire makes her Marvel writing debut with a story that will make you shrink in fear! Bidden to draw forth five archetypal heroes, the Scarlet Witch chose Janet Van Dyne as “the artist” – the hero whose ingenuity and strength of will could prove the lynchpin in the coming battle against Chthon. To enter Chthon’s dimension and face his darkness head-on, the Wasp read from the ill-fated Darkhold text…and it drove her insane. Now her entire life is subject to question. Janet is no stranger to mental illness; she spent years trying to redeem ex-husband Hank Pym despite his violent breakdowns. But now, she has the power to reclaim her story…and fight back. Bellaire brings you the most twisted comic you’ll read this year!

In this highly anticipated mystical saga, five heroes—Iron Man, Blade, Wasp, Black Bolt, and Spider-Man —will be recruited by Scarlet Witch to travel to Chthon’s dimension to stop him before he can invade Earth. But in order to survive there, each hero must first read from the Darkhold and let themselves be driven insane, leading to twisted new versions of themselves! These mind-melting adventures will unfold over a series of exciting character-focused one-shots including November’s Darkhold: Wasp and Darkhold Black Bolt!

Renowned colorist and writer Jordie Bellaire makes her Marvel Comics writing debut alongside rising star artist Claire Roe for a story that will make you shrink in fear in Darkhold: Wasp! Scarlet Witch chose Janet Van Dyne for her ingenuity and strength, will she prove to be the lynchpin in the coming battle against Chthon or will she be consumed by darkness?

Critically acclaimed writer Mark Russell teams up with sensational artist David Cutler to brings you a scream-worthy story that will break an empire in Darkhold: Black Bolt! Black Bolt’s mighty voice is his greatest gift…and since childhood, it has been his greatest curse. Black Bolt thought he was signing up for a battle befitting a king but after reading from the Darkhold, he’ll discover the true battlefield will be his own mind.

Review: Nebula #1

Nebula #1

Nebula is often a character that plays second fiddle to others. She orbits her sister Gamora or their father Thanos. Since her breakout in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she’s dipped her toes a bit more into individuality. Nebula #1 is a big leap for the character putting her squarely in the spotlight.

And that spotlight delivers something that could be interesting though not what was expected.

Writer Vita Ayala has Nebula do what she does best, kill people as she plunders. Some of the early action is hinted at. That decision allows the reader’s imagination to go wild upping the awesome of Nebula’s mission. And that mission is… intriguing. Ayala uses the unique cybernetic nature of the character as a driver for the story and it’ll be interesting where it all drives the character. Her relationship with her sister and abuse of Thanos are characteristics I know of and I fully expected an exploration of what that does to someone. This might touch upon that in a direction I wasn’t expecting or it might go somewhere else getting here away from that. In Ayala we trust.

Claire Roe‘s art is decent. With color by Mike Spicer and lettering by Travis Lanham the issue I see is a drop in detail in some panels. Overall, the comic is consistent and looks good but there’s some work as far as Nebula’s cybernetics where the detail isn’t quite there. That detail gives the character a bit of personality as far as design. Instead of lines defining panels, it’s just a solid color. Where Roe really stands out is the upgrade Nebula gets and how she begins to see the world. Teamed with Lanham’s lettering (assuming that’s his work) the perspective is cool and different.

Nebula #1 goes in an unexpected direction and one that opens things up in numerous ways. The open road is not just for plot but also for the character. There’s something about this debut, it has a lot of potential and it’s definitely one to keep an eye on as far as a series.
