Spy Island #1 Sells Out Before Its April Release

Spy Island #1, the Bermuda Triangle spy-mystery miniseries from the Eisner-nominated team Chelsea Cain, Lia Miternique, Elise McCall, Rachelle Rosenberg, and Joe Caramagna sells out ahead of its on-sale date. Dark Horse Comics has announced a second printing, featuring an all-new cover by co-creator Lia Miternique. 

The highly anticipated dark-humored espionage-adventure is told from the point of view of wry super spy Nora Freud, and takes place on a tropical island where surfers are more likely to be attacked by mermaids than by sharks, and cheap super villains take advantage of the deep discounts during the off-season.

Spy Island #1 arrives in your local comic shop April 1, 2020 featuring a main cover and variant cover by Lia Miternique. Dark Horse Comics will publish the new, second printing variant of issue 1, featuring an all new cover by Lia Miternique on April 8th, in order to meet the high demand from comic book stores and readers.

Review: Star Wars: Darth Vader #2

Star Wars: Darth Vader #2

The debut issue of the series ended with a shocker, Darth Vader facing down Padmé Amidala. Though we saw her die, there she was, alive and well. Star Wars: Darth Vader #2 doesn’t keep the mystery going long and the explanation is pretty obvious. But, the comic continues to excel at exploring Vader’s motivations and close up a nagging question from the prequels.

Writer Greg Pak delivers a solid second issue that delivers some action but mostly focuses on Vader. Through flashbacks, we get the sense of an individual torn by his history and haunted by it as well. There’s an overarching familiar tone to the comic. Pak presents Vader as a looming ghost stalking faux-Padmé. There’s an infusion of the familiar slasher/horror trope of the slow plodding killer hunting down his victim. It’s a genre infusion that I’ve yet to experience in Star Wars. It’s also an interesting mix for a universe whose various recent releases have reached out more to other genres to explore the familiar world.

Raffaele Ienco‘s art is key for the issue. Star Wars: Darth Vader #2 uses similar visual queues as the first issue. It bounces between Vader’s memories and the current situation. Neeraj Menon‘s colors are important for that. Vader’s memories are shown in red giving us a cold but angry perspective. We see the world and memories through his eyes. Literally coloring our view of his world. We get to see his perspective and how it has warped his mission. It makes his motivations understandable as the reader. But, it also doesn’t justify them since we know it’s a false viewpoint.

Star Wars: Darth Vader #2 is a solid second entry that continues Vader’s quest. What’s interesting is it also seems to address the open question of who knew about Padmé’s death? Star Wars: Darth Vader #2 has interesting implications about information and how it’s wielded and controlled in the Star Wars universe.

Closing unanswered questions while adding depth to Vader, it’s a series that expands Marvel’s positive mark on the world of Star Wars.
