Adventure Time: Playing with Fire is a complete story in a manga-esque digest volume from Boom! Studios, relating a special adventure between Jake, Finn, and Flame Princess. For the first time ever, Flame Princess has decided to leave the Fire Kingdom, venturing beyond its boundaries in order to find some new thrills. Spinning out of the highly successful ongoing Adventure Time series, Playing with Fire is drawn by series regular Zack Sterling who’s perfect at aping the look of the television show. So stop being a lumpy lump butt and pick up a copy.
Following in the footsteps and paw prints of Finn and Jake, Mordecai and Rigby are parking their golf cart in the vicinity of Pulp Fiction. After Boom! received such a wild reaction to their ongoing and miniseries for Adventure Time (something in the range of Whooooooooooooooooaaaaahh!) they decided to mine Cartoon Network for some other material and came up with Regular Show. Don’t be a hambone and miss out on the first issue as I’m sure Fist Pump is going to make an appearance.
If you haven’t heard, it’s the fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who. And as the longest running sci-fi show on television turns fifty years old IDW has been turning out some impressive comic adventures for The Doctor. Namely, Prisoners of Time, which is a twelve issue miniseries starring every incarnation of The Doctor in their own solo adventure. Now that Doctors one through four have had their issues released, IDW has turned out the volume one trade paperback, collecting the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Doctors’ adventures. Though each issue is standalone, a dark force is plotting against the Doctor, stealing his companions throughout time, taunting the Doctor to follow him. Now, though this hasn’t been confirmed, the assumption is that issue twelve of the series will feature all eleven Doctors together, fighting to reclaim their companions. So, hop onto the TARDIS while you can with Prisoners of Time v.1, because you never know when the next regeneration is coming.
When The Hulk isn’t offering sound psychiatric help (hope you stuck around after the credits), he’s punching a time card for S.H.I.E.L.D. The Indestructible Hulk v.1 HC smashes into the store this Wednesday, and you’d better take a look at it if you don’t want to make Banner angry. Written by comic legend Mark Waid (who’s been murdering the hell out of the Daredevil comic for the last two years), Indestructible Hulk revolves around a simple principle: Bruce Banner doesn’t want to be remembered as a monster anymore, so he’s agreed to work for S.H.I.E.L.D. in return for the opportunity to invent world-changing thingies. And what happens when he Hulks out? They point him in the right direction. High stress environment + scientist who explodes when angered = entertainment.
