Civil War II #1Civil War II #1 (of 7)

-Okay, sure, issue #0 came out two weeks ago, but Civil War II #1 is the real kick-off this epic Marvel event.

-Having set-up the conflict and the fight over Ulysses, the young Inhuman who can predict the future, Captain Marvel and Iron Man will begin throwing down!

-One of the Marvel Universe‘s primary architects, Brian Michael Bendis (Invincible Iron Man, All New X-Men, House of M) is guiding this event.

-Bendis will also be joined by his Invincible Iron Man artist, David Marquez.

Spider-Woman v.1 tpb “Baby Talk”Spider-Woman v.1 tpb Baby Talk

-We know you’ve heard about it online.  We know you’ve heard about it on the Longest Shortest Time podcast.  We know you’ve heard about it from us.  Spider-Woman v.1 is the pregnancy arc, and it’s wonderful!

-Written by Pulp’s own, Dennis Hopeless, following up his previous, acclaimed run on Spider-Woman.

-Having recently welcomed twins into the world with his wife, Dennis pours his heart-and-soul into this personal arc, as Jessica Drew has to fight her way out of a hostage situation as she goes into labor.

-I have read Dennis’ work since he started getting it published.  I can honestly say that Spider-Woman #5, that is collected in this trade, is the work of his career, combining humor, action, and personal influences flawlessly.

Power Rangers Pink RangerPower Rangers Pink #1 

-Boom Studios! recently launched and found quick success with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series, so, of course, they’re going to follow it up with a spin-off series.

-The first in a series of solo Power Rangers comics, Pink focuses on Kimberly the original Pink Ranger.

-Kimberly will take part in various adventures across the series, with each issue featuring a new conflict.

-To write the series, Boom! has brought together two popular writers, Brenden Fletcher (Gotham Academy, Black Canary, Batgirl) and Kelly Thompson (Jem and the Hologram, A-Force), to tag team the series.

DC Rebirth Week OneBatman Rebirth

-After the mind-blowing reveal of DC Universe Rebirth #1, the relaunch begins this week with four Rebirth one-shots that lead into their respective ongoing series.

-Leading this Wednesday’s line-up is Batman Rebirth #1, co-written by new ongoing writer, Tom King (Vision, Grayson), and out-going writer, Scott Snyder!

-The Superman you love is back!  Having survived the destruction of the pre-New 52 timeline, the Superman starring in this series is the original from 1938!  However, he is married to Lois Lane and has a child, so not everything stays the same.

-Finally, the two green Rebirths.  There’s Green Lanterns, plural, starring Jessica Cruz (from Justice League) and Simon Baz, now in charge of Earth’s protection.  Then there’s Green Arrow, reuniting the Emerald Archer with his one true lady love, Black Canary.

Game of Thrones House Stark playmatEven though the members of the various Game of Thrones houses may be dwindling thanks to stabbings, dragon flames, beheadings, and other grisly forms of death, you can still represent them with the brand new Fantasy Flight playmats out this weekend.  Each playmat features the sigil of a house, including Stark, Targaryen, and Lannister.  Perfect for Magic the Gathering, the A Game of Thrones LCG game, or any other card game where you don’t want everything to slide all over the table.Waka Tanka

If you can look past the racism of Waka Tanka (trust us, the previous box art was worse), then you’ll probably have a great time with this bluffing game for three to six players.  In the game, players control shamans from the Sioux Nation, each attempting to conjure spirits in order to commune with them.  Each turn, players lay a spirit card face down in front of that spirit’s totem.  The catch is that a player is allowed to put down a card that does not match, something they’ll get away with Storyline Fairy Talesif no other player calls them on it.  Get rid of all your cards to claim victory.

Once upon a time there was a storytelling game that was not called Once Upon a Time and added mechanics from Apples to Apples.  That game was called Storyline Fairy Tales.  The first in a series of group storytelling games, Fairy Tales allows three to eight build their own fable with over 100 cards labeled with characters, locations, actions, and so forth.  Each player takes turns as the “narrator,” asking other players for a character or place or some other card descriptor.  The other players then place down their selection, leading to the narrator choosing the best one.  In the future, expansions will provide cards for other styles of story outside of fairy tales.My First Stone Age

The resource management game Stone Age is a great time for adults, but a little overly complicated and lengthy for children.  Z-Man games and designer Marco Teubner have solved that problem with My First Stone Age.  A kid friendly version of the game, My First Stone Age still involves two to four players moving figure around the board, collecting cute, wooden resources, and using them to construct their own settlements.  Unlike the original version of the game, My First Stone Age also plays in fifteen minutes, meaning a distracted child doesn’t have to pay attention that long in order to enjoy the experience.

Captain America Steve RogersCaptain America Steve Rogers #1

-After qualifying for AARP benefits for the last several months, Steve Rogers is back to his youthful self!

-Nick Spencer, writer of the Sam Wilson Captain America series, Astonishing Ant-Man, and The Fix will also be handling writing duties on this series.

-Those who have been missing classic Captain America action, this is the series for you!  Cap is forced to go up against a resurgent Hydra, as well as two iconic enemies from his past.

-If you’re a fan of Sam Wilson, don’t worry.  Not only is Sam sticking around as Captain America, he will also be co-starring in this series.

Nighthawk #1Nighthawk

-Spinning out of the Marvel‘s Squadron Supreme series!

-Nighthawk is the Batman of the Squadron Supreme, but far more deadly and vicious.  So, fans of the Caped Crusader, Moon Knight, and other Batman-esque superheroes should give him a look.

-After leaving the Cyborg series at DC, David F. Walker is talking over writing duties on Nighthawk!

-Housed out of Chicago, Nighthawk is faced with a rash of serial murders.  To solve the case, he’ll have to dig deep into his own dark fears and doubts.

Scooby ApocalypseScooby Apocalypse #1

-This ain’t your momma’s Scooby Doo!

-Covers and writing duties are being handled by legendary comic creator, Jim Lee!

-Interior art, though not by Jim Lee, is from another veteran, Howard Porter.  Porter cut his teeth on Grant Morrison’s famous JLA run from the nineties and has recently been illustrating Superman and Justice League 3000.

-Still featuring classic Scooby-monster-hunting action, but in a setting more akin to The Walking Dead or Mad Max:  Fury Road.

DC Universe Rebirth #1DC Universe Rebirth

-DC is relaunching all of their series at #1, making it easier to jump into the universe.  And it all starts here!

-Likely the last comic issue written by Geoff Johns for the time being (as he’s, you know, kinda in charge of the DC Cinematic Universe now)!

-Everything you’ll need to know about the DC Rebirth timeline and universe will be established here!

-Not only will this one shot feature the death (his name rhymes with Looper Dan) and/or a return of character (his name rhymes with Jolly Guest), it’s price tag is only $2.99!
