Sh*t My President Says: The Illustrated Tweets Of Donald J. Trump
Hardcover | Kindle
Story and Art by Shannon Wheeler
IDW Publishing | Top Shelf Productions
Release Date: August 15, 2017

In my world, as I’m sure it is in yours, when someone drops an LOL into a text or tweet, it is often because they have nothing else to say and want to let you know they saw it. In Sh*t My President Says: The Illustrated Tweets Of Donald J. Trump, however, I absolutely laughed out loud. Maybe it was the tweets or maybe it was the hilarious illustrations from author Shannon Wheeler. But whatever it was, it had me in stitches.

Comic Spotlight: Sheena: Queen Of The Jungle #0

Sheena: Queen Of The Jungle #0 header

Sheena: Queen Of The Jungle #0
Written by Marguerite Bennett and Christina Trujillo
Art by Moritat
Colors by Andre Szymanowicz
Letters by Thomas Napolitano
Cover by Emanuela Lupacchino and Fabio Mantovani, J. Scott Campbell and Sabine Rich, Moritat and Andre Szymanowicz, Ryan Sook
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: August 9, 2017
Cover Price: $0.25

Talk about a convoluted history! This character has seen more revisions than the MLA Handbook! In Sheena: Queen of the Jungle #0, we see a modern take on a vintage character. Older than Wonder Woman but just as overtly sexualized for decades, Sheena has been both a powerful role model and a scantily clad vixen. Time after time, people have tried to create the perfect version of this character only to fall short of their goals. Not only have a multitude of comic companies tried to invigorate this character over the years, but a feature film and two different television series. Other adaptations, sans the name, have occurred but that is clearly more influence than attempt.

This particular issue is obviously a set up for the upcoming series and it is not quite a full length comic, weighing in at fifteen pages of story. But when something costs you merely a quarter, you should not complain even a little. Portraying the heroine in a strong, thoughtful manner, this sneak peek is little more than an introduction but still has a bit of adventure wedged into its small frame. There is quite a bit more dialogue than expected but she does speak with animals in several past versions. This oratory seems, however, to be mainly for the reader and not really to drive the plot.

Comic Review: The Mummy: Volume 1: Palimpsest TPB

The Mummy: Volume 1: Palimpsest TPB
Written by Peter Milligan
Art by Ronilson Freire
Colors by Ming Sen & Dijjo Lima
Letters by Simon Bowland
Titan Comics
Release Date: June 28, 2017
Cover Price: $19.99

Cycles. Everything in existence seems to be cyclical. Take this comic for instance. The Mummy: Volume 1: Palimpsest is a rebirth of the mummy movie franchise that Hammer Films brought to the silver screen in 1959. These were, to some extent, a rebirth themselves from the old black and white films decades earlier. But what Hammer Films did was modernize the characters and connect to a whole new generation of fans.

So, in the spirit of it all, Titan Comics has partnered with Hammer to create this all new adventure. Originally a five issue mini-series, this trade paperback combines all of Ronilson Freire‘s sequential art with a whole lot more in the way of galleries, history, and commentary. With each resurrection of our iconic main character, we see some subtle (and not so subtle) differences that reflect the times in which we live. This concept is explored by Peter Milligan in the comic script in such a way as to make as obvious point of different life is today than what it once was.

Release Date: July 19, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Footloose and fancy free. That is the first phrase that comes to mind when reading Time & Vine #1. If someone I knew had direct access to time travel and it involved imbibing wine, I would be all in. No hesitation, nothing. Just give me a drink and let’s go enjoy the ride.

Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

John Carpenter's Tales of Science Fiction James Ninness

Last Wednesday, Storm King Comics released the first book in their new monthly anthology series, Tales of Science Fiction Vol 1.

The first book in the series is “Vault” by writer James Ninness, a space thriller combining elements of Aliens and Event Horizon. The “Vault” story will run three issues before giving way to a new story.

You can read my review here, and meet the creative team, including James Ninness, below.

Letters by Neil Uyetake
Cover by Derek Charm, Nelson Daniel, Nick Roche & Nelson Daniel
IDW Publishing
Release Date: July 19, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I certainly hope you took my advice last month and read the first issue of this series because Clue #2 is where the action is and I would hate to think you were not up to speed with the goings on after the death of A. Boddy. With so many suspects, though, it will be difficult for the two detectives on site to catch the villain. And now, one more person is found murdered!

What do you get when cross the girl next door with a little bit of risqué photography? Why Bettie Page, of course! Add in a tad of espionage and you get Bettie Page #1! This comic book series from Dynamite Entertainment is based quite loosely on one of the greatest pin-up models of all time. And while she is renowned for her fearless attitude on and off camera, this explores her “secret diaries” that have been kept from the public until now.

SDCC 2017: Todd McFarlane To Direct New ‘Spawn’ Movie From Blumhouse Productions
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Todd McFarlane's Spawn

For fans of Spawn who have been anxiously awaiting word on a new movie, San Diego Comic-Con brings you a gift.

While hanging out on IMDb’s boat at the convention with Kevin Smith, creator Todd McFarlane had a big announcement: producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions are now developing a dark, R-rated Spawn movie. And because Blumhouse is known for doing things low-budget—with titles including the Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Purge movies, and more recently Split and Get Out—McFarlane is going to direct the movie himself.

More below, including videos of McFarlane making the announcement and talking about some other stuff as well.

Cover by Jae Lee, June Chung, Andre De Freitas
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: July 19, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Sisters of Sorrow #1 is possibly one of the most violent comics I have read in months. So obviously I loved it from start to finish, of course. You know that saying that starts with “Hell hath no fury…” and has been around longer than we can remember? Yeah, it’s not wrong and this comic is a perfect reflection of that same righteous anger.
