MPLS Sound

In Shops: Apr 14, 2021
SRP: $19.99

Theresa Booker was hardly the first singer-songwriter to be inspired by His Royal Badness-but she was the most determined.

Minneapolis, 1982. Dozens of young bands, playing day and night in bars and clubs across the city, dream of being noticed by the musical genius Prince, revered as a guru and a powerbroker. But when Theresa and her band, Starchild, are offered the opportunity of a lifetime-to be taken in and mentored by their idol-they soon find that there’s a dark side to fame and fortune that could turn their dream into a nightmare.

MPLS Sound is the ultimate love letter to the legendary Minneapolis funk-rock sound of the 1980s.

Barbarella: Intégrale numérique

Written by Jean-Claude Forest
Art by Jean-Claude Forest
Purchase

Les aventures de l’affriolante Barbarella, terrienne en exil qui explore les planètes les plus éloignées de la galaxie. 1 VOLUME PARU – HISTOIRES INDÉPENDANTES. L’oeuvre mythique des années 60 enfin rééditée ! Créée en 1964, Barbarella bouleverse le monde de la bande dessinée et scandalise dès sa parution. Fer de lance de la bande dessinée adulte et de genre, l’oeuvre est censurée. À l’heure de la libération sexuelle, les traits sensuels et l’érotisme que dégage l’héroïne éponyme ne laissent en effet aucun lecteur indifférent. L’image de la femme dans la bande dessinée, jusqu’alors le plus souvent cantonnée à des rôles de figurante asexuée, explose donc avec Barbarella, qui ouvre la voie vers une bande dessinée adulte et libérée. Rapidement devenu une référence, l’oeuvre était introuvable depuis de nombreuses années.

In a story ripped from today’s headlines, the U.S. government taps Cap to embark on what might be his most life-changing mission ever – to serve on a military tribunal being held for a foreign antiwar activist charged with supporting terrorist actions against the U.S.! Cap’s involvement leads him to discover the existence of militant fringe groups planning a legislative overthrow of the United States government. But an even more startling discovery for this true American patriot is millions of disenfranchised citizens who feel abandoned and neglected by both major political parties.

He is the son of Mar-Vell, once the greatest warrior the galaxy had ever known. Spawned in a test tube and prematurely aged to maturity, Genis now struggles to fill the boots of his late father–the boots of Captain Marvel. Therein lies the problem. For Genis has inherited his father’s greatest gift, the ability of Cosmic Awareness, a oneness with the universe that allows him to know what will happen, what may happen, and what should happen to every living thing in the universe. You might think such knowledge would drive a person mad… and you’d be right.

Vingt-cinq ans ont passé depuis l’échec de la Cinquième Croisade, anéantie par la peste en 1221. Guillaume de Sonnac, Chevalier du Temple, enquête au sein d’une Commission créée par le Pape Grégoire IX, sur les raisons réelles de l’échec des Croisés. Tout le porte à croire en effet que cette histoire de peste n’a été qu’un écran de fumée, destiné à dissimuler un drame auquel semblent mêlées d’étranges et dangereuses créatures tapies dans les catacombes de la cité. Pour percer le secret de ces « spectres aux yeux d’argent », Guillaume de Sonnac réunit quelques hommes de confiance. Ils vont découvrir une vérité qui dépassera de très loin leurs suppositions les plus folles et leurs craintes les plus irraisonnées.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

BeQuest #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.

Bequest #1 (AfterShock) – Magical items from the world of Tangea are being traded on the black Market in Chicago.

Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade #1 (Marvel) – Black Knight is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe so we’re always interested in seeing how the comics reflect that.

Count (Humanoids) – A sci-fi take on the classic The Count of Monte Cristo.

Hero Hourly (21 Pulp) – Working as a superhero isn’t easy. The critically-acclaimed hit is collected! If you missed it, here’s your chance to catch up.

Muhammad Ali: Kinshasa 1974 (Titan Comics) – The graphic novel is a mix of fantastic art and photography. We have some glowing reviews here and here.

Orphan & the Five Beasts #1 (Dark Horse) – James Stokoe delivers a kung-fu epic featuring an adopted warrior having to kill their masters’ former disciples who are now corrupted.

Radiant Black #2 (Image Comics/Skybound) – The first issue showed off a lot of potential and was a fun read. We want to see where it all goes and this issue will be key to see how much longer we stick with the series.

Red Atlantis #5 (AfterShock) – We want to see where this action/political thriller goes. There’s so much to cover and so many different ways it can go.

Savage #2 (Valiant) – Savage has been captured. What’s the plan? The first volume of the series was great and the first issue caught us off-guard in a good way.

Science Comics: Digestive System (First Second) – These graphic novels have been educational and we want to learn about the digestive system!

Superman: Red & Blue #1 (DC Comics) – Publishers continue their “color” anthology kick, this time Superman is up! We always want to see what various creators do with the same character.

The Trials of Ultraman #1 (Marvel) – The first volume was solid. And we’re excited to see how this classic character evolves in the hands of Marvel.

Ultramega #1 (Image Comics/Skybound) – People are turning into kaiju and only three people with incredible powers can stop them! The final reckoning is coming but is this a way they can even win? Kaiju have been popular recently so we’re interested in seeing how this series differs from the pack.

Today Features Over 40 New Comic Releases from DC, VIZ, Yen Press, Kodansha, and More!

Review: Space Bastards #3

Space Bastards #3

Space Bastards #3 shifts the focus of the series a bit. This issue focuses on Manny and his seeking revenge against Proton. The result is another hilarious issue that’s over the top in action, violence, and pretty offensive things. In other words, it’s par for the course for the series.

The series follows the Intergalactic Postal Service, a space based postal service with a twist. It’s not as simple as delivering a package. Instead, the race to deliver is a contest with the package being able to be stolen from other delivery people. For each handler, the price of delivery goes up. Also, anything goes. Kill your competition if you need to snag the package and complete the delivery. That last bit results in what’s been an over the top comic where the guns go ablaze and blood splatters.

Manny is pissed he had his package stolen by Proton resulting in an attack after the package has been delivered. This gets Manny suspended for 24 hours and even more pissed.

Writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey deliver another crazy issue where Manny is on the warpath and a package has to be delivered. Bombs go off. Bullets fly. Flamethrowers BBQ the competition. And that’s more on the tame end of things.

The issue introduces Zordakk, my new favorite character who has an interesting speaking pattern and says whatever’s on his mind. It’s hard to not laugh at what he says, no matter how offensive and off it is.

Darick Robertson is the maestro of chaos with color by Diego Rodriguez and lettering by Simon Bowland. The visuals are the usual entertaining with almost glee at the destruction. The story sets up the joke but it’s the visual that delivers the punchline. The comic just wouldn’t work as well with a different style to it. Everything is exaggerated visually with large explosions and blood flowing. The characters too deliver that over-the-top aspect with their emotions flowing.

Space Bastards #3 is another fantastic issue. The issue, and series, seems to revel in the death and destruction. It bathes in it. The series is a fun one with a bit of a throwback to Heavy Metal aspect about it. It’s a fun series where you have no idea what’s coming next, keeping readers on their toes for the next kill.
