The latest supernatural thriller from writer Eric Palicki and artist Wendell Cavalcanti, Atlantis was not built for tourists, was an exciting surprise, which established its own mythology and quickly developed new characters in a satisfying 4-issue story. Palicki and Cavalcanti return to the genre in Black’s myth, an LA detective story starring a werewolf detective and his jinn assistant from Ahoy Comics. Palicki appreciates brevity as the soul of the wit and has already shown readers that he can complete a narrative while leaving the door open to more, an approach perfectly suited to the episodic and conspiratorial nature of detective novels. Cavalcanti has a knack for facial expressions that allows characters to act clearly and develop sympathy. Before you even sit down to read Black’s myth # 1, I am well aware that I will be sticking around until the end; these two creators simply tell a great horror thread. When you combine their background with Ahoy’s practice of providing readers with an abundance of additional material, including short stories and other quirks, readers can rest assured that Black’s myth # 1 is a sure-fire bet for an entertaining Wednesday afternoon. – Chase Magnett

Described as “Gladiator meets The hunger Games“, Fight girls # 1 not only signals Frank Cho’s return to comics, but also has an intriguing premise. Ten women from different parts of an empire come together to participate in an ancient and deadly competition for the Queen’s throne – but with an unexpected twist. Now, for me personally, stories like Gladiator and The hunger Games are favorites, so a comic that claims to be some sort of female-centric collision is going to be machine read for me, but it’s a really interesting book and the art is awesome as well. While Cho is known for her specific style and perhaps for her emphasis on certain feminine traits, the art in Fight girls # 1 is actually pretty awesome. It’s just a fun genre book worth checking out. – Nicole Tambour

the Justice League and Unlimited Justice League the animated series has provided a gateway to the DC Universe for a whole generation of fans. For some, these shows were their first contact with DC characters. Others followed the creators who built Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated Series into their next venture, telling new stories and adapting DC Comics classics with an expanded character cast and high level of quality. For many, the DC Animated Universe remains the definitive version of the DC Universe for years after its last episode. These fans will be happy to know that Unlimited Justice League producer James Tucker and writer JM DeMatteis team up with artist Ethen Beavers to tell new stories set in this same universe after Unlimitedthe final of Justice League Infinity. Even if you’re unfamiliar with the DC Animated Universe Justice League – and you really should watch these shows – Justice League Infinity seems to offer a strong storytelling and endearing style that any fan can appreciate. – Jamie Lovett

Honestly, the first two Justice League of America The Bronze Age Omnibuses are basically sacred tomes in my house, and the release of this third installment has been a long time coming, especially after its initial cancellation in 2019. This massive compilation reprints over 40 stories from “Satellite Era” “of the Justice League of America. Which saw the iconic squad continue to grow and evolve in the late 1970s. The satellite era is arguably the Justice League at its best, and every change in the roster, new opponent or shocking team with a other superhero team is really fascinating to see. Although I have already read almost all of the issues included in Flight. 3, I couldn’t be happier to add this omnibus to my shelf. – Jenna Anderson

Sas Milledge’s work with writer Michael Moreci on The lost carnival was exceptional, making the announcement of their own original series mamo a real thrill. They set out to tell a story of hedge witches, growth and responsibility in an increasingly chaotic world. The story centers on Orla, a young witch called home to manage her village’s relationship with fairies and magic after the death of her grandmother. This premise fits perfectly with Milledge’s style, which captures both the soft wonders and harsh edges of adolescence, while also bridging the gap between the mundane and the fantastic. Milledge provides a sense of Ghibli awe as she explores the strange or the uncertain that will no doubt be incorporated into the many small struggles that Orla faces. Mamo promises to be one of the most beautiful and subtly alluring new comics of 2021, and I can’t wait to see it in person. – Chase Magnet

It’s been over a decade since My Chemical Romance came out Danger Days: The Real Life of the Fabulous Killjoys, an ambitious concept album that chronicles a group of punk-rock aliens in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, and was briefly turned into a comic book series by Gerard Way and Shaun Simon in 2013. All these years later, the themes of individuality, oppression, and found family throughout the Killjoys the universe has only grown in relevance, which made the release of the recent National anthem all the more special comedy miniseries. In National anthem, the Killjoys are assimilated into society without their memories, only for an explosive series of events putting Mike Milligram and the rest of the group in a chaotic – but familiar fight. Way and Simon take the familiar ‘bringing the band together’ trope and turn it into an energetic, meaningful, and surprisingly eerie journey accessible to both die-hard fans and new readers alike. The art of Leonardo Romero and the colors of Jordie Bellaire take the series in an even more incredible direction, with an impressive punk-rock aesthetic. The national anthem ended up being one of the biggest pleasant surprises the comics gave me last year – and there’s a good chance it’ll be for you, too. – Jenna Anderson

It is strange to think that since 2019 when House of X and Powers of X turned the X line into the hottest thing in superhero comics, the X-Men ceased to exist as a superhero team. We had one going X Men series focusing on the Summers family and other icons of the mutant community. Still, the mutant narrative has grown larger than a single team and less involved with the usual superheroes in the Marvel Universe. That changes this week as Gerry Duggan, Pepe Larraz and Marte Gracia, three creators responsible for some of the best mutant-centric comics of the past two years, launch an all-new X Men series in X Men # 1. During “X of Swords,” Cyclops and Marvel Girl recognized the need for mutant heroes. Now, they will lead the first democratically elected X-Men team as they once again commit to protecting the world that fears and hates them. Fans will have to check it out to see if they survive the experience. – Jamie Lovett
