It’s a Cybernetic Summer for DC in July

In this sizzling summertime anthology special, Harley Quinn and Sy Borgman conquer a truly titanic water slide, Cyborg, Superman, and Cyborg Superman find it difficult to have a conversation, much less a fight, and Batman tries everything to escape a summer cookout—even taking on the omnipotent Brother Eye and his newly infectious O.M.A.C.s!

 And it’s not just the cyborgs hitting the surf! Flashes from across the multiverse gather for a race to claim the fastest flash in the multiverse! Mercury Flash from Earth-44 is out to win it all this year, the only person standing in his way is…Barry Allen! And Red Tornado’s on a camping trip with his wife Kathy and his daughter Traya, but he’s distracted by Justice League matters! When a threat emerges, will Red Tornado be able to protect his family?

All these and more sunburnt stories that are worth getting sand in your motherboard for!

AHOY’s grindhouse sensation puts the pedal to the metal and speeds toward a shocking climax! Barbarians vs. Martians! Father vs. son! Ape vs. certain death!

And the customary AHOY prose stories.

Three Comics Enter, One Comic Leaves in AHOY’s Steel Cage Match. The Winner is…

AHOY Comics has been shaking the comic industry up by having fans “expecting more” and getting it in lots of content in a single issue. Recently, the publisher released Steel Cage, a comic featuring three stories from three creative teams. Fans were then encouraged to vote as to their favorite who would then get its own series.

And now we know who the winner is…. Tom Peyer, AHOY Comics Editor-in-Chief, released the below statement:

AHOY Comics’ election to determine which STEEL CAGE feature is to be awarded its own series has ended. The deadline for online voting has passed. The ballots have been counted.

Three deserving candidates vied for this important honor: Noah Zark by Mark Waid & Lanna Souvanny; Bright Boy by Stuart Moore and Peter Gross; and True Identity by artist Alan Robinson and myself.

As editor-in-chief of AHOY Comics I must now inform you, with deep regret, that evidence exists of serious voting irregularities. The total number of ballots cast bears no discernible relation to STEEL CAGE’s circulation figures. One feature, which trailed significantly over the first week, gained a huge majority in one day, perhaps in minutes–an insurmountable lead it maintained to the end.

Our technicians inform me that this could have been the work of a few quick keystrokes, perpetrated by almost anyone–from the despicable agent of a rogue government to a lonely, misguided teenager.

Make no mistake. No one at AHOY is accusing any STEEL CAGE creators of wrongdoing. Every one of our writers, artists, colorists, letterers, designers, and production staff comported themselves honorably and with dignity throughout this process. We respectfully salute one and all.

Nevertheless, due to the alarming evidence of tampering–I do not, I will not, I cannot certify this election.

Instead, in fairness to the creators and to the readers who voted for them, all three candidates will be awarded their own series. Beginning next year, watch for the announcements of NOAH ZARK #1, BRIGHT BOY #1, and TRUE IDENTITY #1, worthy comics all.

We launched this effort with every intention of carrying out the will of the majority. It is the precious right of all comic book fans to go about their work, pursue their studies, and tuck their children in at night secure in the knowledge that their votes have been counted. AHOY’s commitment to the democratic system of comics remains unshakable. With the support of our publisher, Hart Seely, and our entire staff, I call upon all relevant authorities to investigate this unspeakable outrage and bring the offenders to justice.

Thank you, and God bless comics.

–Tom Peyer, AHOY Comics Editor-in-Chief

Upcoming issues will include a new spooky, sugary cereal story by Mark Russell and artist Peter Snejbjerg as well as stories by Alisa Kwitney, Paul Constant, Carol Lay, Linda Medley, and Greg Scott. Each and every issue of EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR features Hunt Emerson’s slapstick “Poe and the Black Cat” backup story as well as a cover by legendary Mad Magazine artist Richard Williams.

AHOY will publish the EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR Volume One trade paperback in comic shops on October 2nd and in bookstores on October 15th. EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR Season Two debuts on October 9th.

CAPTAIN GINGER Season Two

Review: Second Coming #1

Second Coming #1

After so much controversy, Second Coming #1 is finally here. The series sees Jesus sent to Earth by his father to learn from a superhero Sunstar. Part comedy, part homage, part exploration of religion, the first issue delivers on expectations.

The comic opens taking us through history and God’s interaction with humans. From Adam and Eve to Jesus’ resurrection, we get a quick look at how things went so wrong.

Created by Mark Russell and Richard Pace, the comic is an entertaining look at religion and superheroes without fear of pushing buttons for either. We’re presented with a rather naive Jesus and a father frustrated with his creation.

What’s interesting though is the lack of any real controversy. The truly religious will recognize Jesus depiction not as mockery but as a focus on his real message of love and healing. Then there’s Sunstar, a punch first ask questions later superhero from another world. The two together deliver a juxtaposition of philosophy and action. And how the two must deal with the evil that is mankind is one of the more interesting aspects.

Russell and Pace give us a modern debate as to the best course of action. Is punching and violence the way to defeat evil? Is listening, compassion, and love the way to go? They present their debate in an over the top method that brings humor to it all and keeps it from being a bit too serious. This culminates in the first issue with Sunstar going after counterfeiters of a Pokemon-like game and dispensing with extreme justice.

The art of Second Coming #1 is solid with a style that shifts depending on the time period. Pace’s art, with “Earth pages” finished by Leonard Kirk and colored by Andy Troy delivers a comic that shifts in tone visually. The scenes in Heaven or the past have a more serious aspect about them. The superheroics have a more comedic look with over the top violence. There are also small details that bring about the humor as readers are forced to pay attention to entire panels to get every joke. It’s a comic that uses the art to deliver a second and third laugh beyond the obvious initial one. The lettering by Rob Steen also enhances the situation giving us a more wrath of God feel when appropriate with a simple switch of style.

As with AHOY Comics, we’re also presented with a prose story by Stuart Moore featuring art by Cayetano Valenzuela. While there’s not really a thematic connection between it and the main comic, it feels like the added bonus we’ve come to expect from this publisher. It’s a value-add and even without it, the comic would be a must get.

In reality, Second Coming #1 is much to do about nothing when it comes to the protests against it. The blasphemy isn’t there. Russell continues his dissection of religion, boiled down to the basics, we’ve seen from him before. It’s an interesting debut that entertains and makes you think and definitely will have you coming back for more.
