Powers Run Out of Charge in Getting Dizzy #3

BOOM! Studios has revealed the first look at Getting Dizzy #3, the next issue of the original four-issue limited series, from New York Times bestselling author Shea Fontana, acclaimed artist Celia Moscote, colorist Gloria Martinelli, and letterer Jim Campbell, with a superhero story that reveals a true hero is nothing without her friends, available on January 26, 2022.

Dizzy and the rest of The Rollers have had a quiet couple of days, tracking any possible Negatrix activity and getting Dizzy ready for the big skating competition. But as Dizzy’s confidence in her abilities climbs, arrogance becomes a mask for self-doubt, to the detriment of her friends. Even as Dizzy starts to doubt herself, and pushes her pals away, she realizes that Mayor Fox is infected by the Negatrixes and is spreading their negativity all over town! Before she can get her thoughts in order, Dizzy discovers the dark, unexpected cause of her ego-trip at the worst possible time… when her powers run out of charge…

Review: Getting Dizzy #1

Getting Dizzy #1

Dizzy wants to be the best! But in the case of everything she’s tried, including roller skating, this teen has only been able to achieve one thing — disaster. Just when she is ready to pack it in, everything changes when the Negatrixes attack, forcing her to take up the mantle of ‘Burb Defender! Getting Dizzy #1 is part magical girl and part superhero and really fun and cute. It’s a debut that’s hard to not enjoy that features a heroine you want to cheer for, mostly because she feels like the dorky mess we all are.

Written by Shea Fontana, we get a lead in Dizzy that’s just not good at… well… pretty much everything. She’s a mess of a person who constantly fails in her activities and sits in chocolate. She’s a lovable “loser” who through fate has to become a hero. But, what Fontana does that’s great is she’s still a mess of a hero. She doesn’t know how her powers and equipment works and smashes into friends while skating around. She gets her abilities and new role and doesn’t automatically get excellence. She’s going to have to work for it. And there’s something very endearing about that. It makes the comic more relatable and Dizzy a hero we want to cheer for because she’s a little bit like us all.

The art by Celia Moscote is fantastic perfectly capturing the tone of the comic. It has that mix of magic, humor, and action, and that’s helped with Natalia Nesterenko‘s colors. Jim Campbell‘s lettering too is key giving a greater personality to the evil Negatrixes through the lettering style. There’s just something about what this trio brings to the style of the comic. Anything else and the comic wouldn’t nail down its fun and goofy tone. And that tone is such a good thing. There’s a lacking of heroes who stumble stories out there and this hopefully will fill that gap delivering action and laughs.

Getting Dizzy #1 is a solid debut. It’s one of those comics that put a smile on your face with its goofy premise that has some great roots. There’s a bit of video game fun, superhero escapades, and pratfalls. It all comes together perfectly. There’s a lot hinted at in this debut and I’m excited to see where it all goes from here speeding on its roller skates to awesome.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Radio Apocalypse #1

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) 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

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

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

A Chance (Graphic Mundi) – A story about a family’s struggles and triumphs about raising kids, adoption, and struggles with health.

Almost American #3 (AfterShock) – This based on a true story comic series about Russian FSB agents who defect has been intriguing so far and as the tension and danger ramps up, we want to see how crazy this story really is!

Batman #117 (DC Comics) – “Fear State” has been one of the best Batman events in years and we’re excited to see how it ends and where it leaves the status-quo.

Batman Secret Files: The Gardener #1 (DC Comics) – The Gardener has been an x-factor of a character. We don’t know much about her but that’s going to change here!

Carriers #1 (Red 5 Comics) – A band of weaponized carrier pigeons, they soar the night sky looking for new threats and find their largest one yet when the Croc King comes climbing up out of the New York sewer!

Chicken Devil #2 (AfterShock) – A fast food chain owner seeks revenge against the mob who killed his family. There’s something very 80s about this series and we’re excited for that.

Commander Rao #1 (Scout Comics) – On the final dawn of an exhausted war, a rogue commander sets out on a warpath to confront a tyrannical baron. A year later, stories are sung of her heroism, but the mystery of her motives remains.

Dark Ages #3 (Marvel) – This alternate world story has been great so far and the twists have been excellent. Apocalypse looks like he’s unstoppable with the “heroes” he’s gathered, will the rest be able to stand up against him?

Robins #1 (DC Comics) – What’s better than one Robin? All the Robins!

Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 (DC Comics) – There’s been some high-profile news lately about Jonathan Kent and his sexuality. This is the issue eyes are on. It’s already getting a new printing, so don’t miss the “event” that has made the mainstream news!

Wonder Woman: Evolution #1 (DC Comics) – We’re always excited to check out a new Wonder Woman series and where it’ll take the character. In this series she’ll stand trial as aliens judge humanity’s worthiness to exist in the universe!
