This fall, renowned storyteller Walter Mosley, known for his definitive and bestselling international work in mystery and crime fiction, brings his signature fiction writing style to a sweeping saga of Yancy Street’s favorite son in The Thing. The six-issue series debuts in November 2021.

Written by Mosley and with art by Tom Reilly, the story will range from the urban sprawl of the alleys of Manhattan to the furthest reaches of the cosmos itself. In The Thing, a lonely evening and a chance encounter (or is it?) sends Ben Grimm embarking on a sojourn that will have him confronting—and battling—figures both old and new.

Featuring guest appearances from throughout the Marvel Universe, as well as precision artwork by Reilly, THE NEXT BIG THING will remind audiences why The Thing is one of the most popular and beloved characters in the history of comics!

Jay Edidin; From X-Plaining to Writing the X-Men

X-Pert podcaster Jay Edidin wrote his 1st Marvel comic X-Men: Marvels Snapshots, and I love it! So of course I had him on my show to talk about the obvious topics like DC Comics, Victorian Literature, and Fun Home.

And yes, of course, his take on Cyclops in this highly personal yet accessible comic.

You can hear Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-men and read his tweets.

He’s been on Graphic Policy Radio before to talk about stopping harassment and abuse in the comics industry and Punisher Season 2.

The Marvels Snapshot tour through Marvel history continues, showcasing Marvel’s greatest characters through the eyes of ordinary people! Or does it? In this case, the “ordinary person” is teenaged Scott Summers, witnessing the dawn of the Marvel Age from a Nebraska orphanage and wondering what his place in it might be. What was it like to experience the debut of the FF, the Hulk, Iron Man and more? To wish you could be a part of it all? Writer Jay Edidin (Thor: Metal Gods, Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men) makes his Marvel comics debut, teamed with Tom Reilly (Immortal Hulk), to tell a story of upheaval and decision that would shape the X-Men (and the Marvel Universe) forever after.

• Are your children normal? Are they respectful of you and other approved authority figures? Do they have a poster of the Punisher on their wall?
• Or are they angry and discourteous? Do they embrace difficult and/or dangerous concepts, such as protest and the environment? Do they stand with the Hulk?
• Ask yourself: Are your children normal… or have they joined the TEEN BRIGADE?

Review: Astro Hustle #1

Astro Hustle #1

Chen Andalou, the black sheep of a prominent activist family, returns after being accidentally put in cryo-stasis for sixty years. Chen, a cosmic criminal, wakes up to find his younger brother is now the President of the Galaxy. Chen does what he knows best: he steals stuff and causes a problem.

Let us not pretend you don’t think you know exactly what Astro Hustle #1 will be like before you even open the cover. A cover which looks like a 70’s or 80’s science fiction poster in the vein of Star Wars, but with a lot more pink.

With an art style reminiscent of the same era, Astro Hustle has a strange retro feel to its presentation, but there’s nothing retro about the story itself. Tom Reilly‘s art is both evocative of the space operas of yesteryears comic books and also freshly appetizing for today’s new readers. Ursula Decay brings a vivid life to the book, which is exactly what I hoped for and expected after staring at the cover before opening up the comic. visually, this is a brilliant comic; the interplanetary locations feel individual and alive while retaining visual queues that help the reader take in information regarding the story; things like cleanliness, weather and atmospheric conditions that you don’t think you notice.

Jai Nitz pens a swift escapist space crime story that should bring all your fond memories of the various pirates and space pirates and their adventures that you’ve ever read (or watched), but despite the sense of an old friend coming back to see you, this is a story that’s more than original enough to stand on its own.

There’s a rich history hidden within these pages, both of the universe and of the characters, that’s hinted at throughout the comic that’s just waiting for exposure over the course of the story (of course it could be that I missed the first series/miniseries, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t. If I did, then credit should be given for never once making me feel lost in the story).

Rarely do I read science fiction comics I enjoy as much as I have Astro Hustle. All the hallmarks of a great story is here, from the commentary about privilege, punishment and corruption for those willing and wanting a deeper story, but there’s also a flat out exciting story if you just want to be entertained.

Plus, space pirates.
