IDW Publishing has revealed that Marieke NijkampNew York Times bestselling author of This Is Where It Ends and writer of DC’s The Oracle Code graphic novel, will pen the latest entry in the long-running children’s horror series, Goosebumps!

Written by Nijkamp, the monthly Goosebumps: Secrets of the Swamp comic book miniseries will debut in September, featuring the artwork of Yasmin Flores Montanez and colors by Rebecca Nalty.

The five-issue Secrets of the Swamp introduces Blake, a twelve-year-old girl who is shipped away to her weird aunt’s home in Fever Swamp for the summer. Expecting her weeks to be filled with video games, mosquito bites, and a whole lot of nothing, she instead finds herself in a spooky turf war between wolf hunters and werewolves. With monsters on both sides, it’s up to Blake to use all of her gaming skills to escape alive.

Bettie Page Returns in New Series from Karla Pacheco, Vincenzo Federici, Rebecca Nalty, and Becca Carey

Bettie Page is back and better than ever, with a new alternate history twist making her a true Hollywood star in the making – and suspect to a murder!

Writer Karla Pacheco brings her kickass skill and sensibilities to another iconic babe, building up a new yarn for Bettie that’s part pulp noir, part pin-up, stylized yet realistic. She’s joined by Italian artist Vincenzo Federici, who’s drawn the “Dark Angel” before. Rounding out the team are colorist Rebecca Nalty and letterer Becca Carey.

In this series, Bettie has moved from New York to Hollywood sometime around 1954. She’s transitioned into more minor acting working, with theater success and bit parts in B-movies. Though she’s still challenged navigating the sticky swamp of producers, perps, pumps, and pushers who call La La Land home and want a piece of the pie – and Bettie. The question is – does Bettie Page find trouble, or does trouble find her? Signing on for a supporting role in a “tastefully sensual” fantasy film set on an idyllic tropical island, she’s wrapped up in a new environment and colorful cast of characters. Until someone is murdered and a massive storm hits!

For such an iconic woman, a crop of all-star artists are contributing covers! Junggeun Yoon leads the pack, joined by Kano and of course the legendary Joseph Michael Linsner. Riki Le Cotey marks a first with a cosplay cover. The real-life Bettie herself is featured on two photo cover variants, one nice and one naughty. Plus a slick homage to Frank Miller from Stephen Mooney.

Review: James Bond #1

James Bond #1

With a new film on the horizon, the excitement for more James Bond is in the air and Dynamite Entertainment delivers a new direction and series kicking off with James Bond #1.

Written by Vita Ayala and Danny Lore the comic is an entertaining heist story but feels a little short when it comes to 007.

The first issue revolves around a missing painting which has been stolen with a forgery put in its place. Much of the issue is the discussion around and investigation involving that. Bond’s role is limited to an action sequence opening and a much later appearance. Instead, the issue is mainly focused on the two investigators attempting to figure out who stole the painting.

The comic is a good setup, don’t get me wrong. We get taken through the investigation and logic to figure out who the most likely thieves are. But, with a lack of Bond and lack of action, the comic feels more like The Italian Job from the police perspective than Bond. Still, the comic is good for those that enjoy that sort of story. By the end, we get at least more of a glimpse of our hero and the main attraction. Unlike recent Bond comics, this one doesn’t throw you into the action instead it gives us a slow build of the mystery.

The art by Eric Gapstur is good. Colored by Roshan Kurichiyanil and Rebecca Nalty with lettering by Ariana Maher, the comic’s art keeps the story entertaining despite the lack of action. It’s difficult to make what’s presented visually engaging but the team does a solid job. It doesn’t have the big explosions are crazy sequences but there’s something expressive about the characters that hooks you.

As a heist story, James Bond #1 is a solid start. As a Bond story, it’s a bit mixed. The issue is a lot of buildup to whatever villain awaits. It’s just a bit different in how we get there. The threat too feels a bit scaled back for a character who in the past has stopped global threats, another interesting change. There’s more to come and the debut is interesting enough to check the rest out. It just might be a disappointment for those expecting the typical Bond over the top action and threats.

When the school’s barely-a-basketball-team unexpectedly attempts to recruit her, Charlie’s adamant that she’s left that life behind…until she’s won over by the charming team captain, Liv, and the ragtag crew she’s managed to assemble. And while Charlie may have left the cut-throat world of competitive basketball in the dust, sinking these hoops may be exactly what she needs to find the person she truly wants to be.

From Carly Usdin, the writer behind the hit series Heavy Vinyl, and artist Noah Hayes (Wet Hot American Summer) comes an ensemble comedy series that understands that it’s the person you are off the court that matters most.
