“LOST” part one! When the Justice League is confronted by three concurrent threats, a sleep-deprived Batman makes a crucial error that causes an unthinkable-and potentially unforgivable-tragedy. Legendary Eisner Award-nominated writer Christopher Priest (Deathstroke) is joined by artist Pete Woods for a brand-new must-read Justice League story like you’ve never seen before!

The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson from Eddie Gorodetsky and Marc Andreyko this January

Image Comics will debut The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson created by Emmy Award winning writer-producer Eddie Gorodetsky and Eisner Award winning writer Marc Andreyko. Gorodetsky, whose credits include MomBig Bang Theory, and Theme Time Radio Hour with Bob Dylan, teamed up with Andreyko whose recent collection Love Is Love united the comics world to raise money and awareness in the wake of the Orlando LGBTQ shootings.

Nick Wilson, their first collaboration, is illustrated by comics veterans Steve Sadowski and Ian Churchill. Colored by Hi-Fi Colour Design, lettered by A Larger World Studios, and edited by Shannon Eric Denton with covers by Pete Woods and Ian Churchill.

The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson is a story for anyone who failed publicly, who didn’t prepare for a second act in their life, who hit a wall and didn’t know how to recover. For a few years in his early 20s, Nick Wilson had super powers and all the acclaim associated with them. When those powers vanished, so did his fame, sending him from national hero to late-night punch line. By the time we pick up his story, he is not yet 30 and barely a name in a trivia contest. Faced with a life in a rear view mirror full of lost powers, faded glory, former enemies, ex-girlfriends, and forgotten grudges, Nick struggles to figure out who he is today. Packing on an extra 20 pounds and peering through a medicinal marijuana haze, he is trying to build a future when all that’s left is just a man who hasn’t been super for a very long time. These are THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NICK WILSON.

Nick Wilson #1 Cover A by Woods (Diamond Code NOV170648) and Cover B by Churchill (Diamond Code NOV170649) will be available on Wednesday, January 17th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 18th.

“You know what’s cool? Being a superhero. You know what’s cooler than cool? Killing anyone in my way that makes me seem like less of a super cool superhero and tries to make me look like the chump that my former boss used to make me out to be, but I sure showed him when I deathrayed him and now who is the big man super hero? I am! That’s who! And everyone likes me! And if someone doesn’t, I will karate chop them so hard, they will change the word karate to Tim!!!” – Excerpt from Tim’s daily affirmation

Review: Archie #22

Archie22Main

*Warning Spoilers Below*

Archie #22 is the latest addition to the “Over the Edge” event in the relaunched Archie books, and it raises the stakes even further. Told in the same patchwork style as the previous issue, Archie #22 gives us flashbacks in to Betty Cooper’s origins, from her days as a screaming baby, to her childhood friendship with Archie, to the day she met Veronica. Unlike previous issues, the comedy is completely dropped from #22, keeping tension high throughout the book and giving the final moments the gravity they deserve.

Mark Waid’s script brings drama to the series in a way that’s been on hold since “Death of Archie” in 2014, the last major event when life or death played a part in the Archie universe. This time, however, there’s more “life” than “death”, as we finally discover that Betty has in fact survived the crash from issue #20. She flatlined at the end of issue #21, but in #22 the doctor’s bring her back from the brink. The accident still had a major impact on her, however, as the issue ends with a big reaveal: Betty can’t feel her legs.

While Betty’s fate is resolved here, there are still plenty of questions to answer. What consequences will Reggie face (Archie was released from questioning by police in issue #21, but they made reference to “dealing with” Reggie later)? Is Betty’s condition permanent? How will this effect Archie’s relationships with both Betty and Veronica? And is someone’s life still on the line?

Pick this one up for yourself–it looks like “Over the Edge” is building up to something bigger.

Oh man oh man oh man! Okay! Everybody cool out! We just need a second here and we will figure this out. Or not. I don’t know. Tim and the gang messed up pretty big and I’m not sure how they are going to handle it. And not just them. How are the superheroes gonna deal with this? Captain Battle doesn’t seem too easygoing…not with a name like CAPTAIN BATTLE!
Let’s just think about this logically. Maybe Sparky, Captain Battle Jr., and Tim can turn this monumental screw-up to their advantage. I mean, they have a lot of inside information and maybe a town without crime isn’t so great after all…
