Apparently, I have missed some amazing comics lately. Ether: The Copper Golems #1 is the first issue of the second series. That’s right, second series. So guess who gets to go shopping for some back issues? That’s right, this guy. But before I do, let me tell you a little about this comic gem.

I have yet to read Persephone but just flipping through it I am struck by the amalgamation of so many different styles blended into one unique, yet disturbing, tale.

Cover by Sara Richard
Action Lab Comics
Release Date: May 2, 2018

I stumbled upon this quite by accident but I had to do a quick spotlight to show it off! The Ghost, The Owl is possibly one of my top ten favorite graphic novels I have read this year. It’s a touching story about a lost soul who is on a journey of discovery. With the help of a newfound friend, the way is found but obstacles appear and the struggle begins.

Dungeons & Dragons: Evil At Baldur's Gate #1 header

Dungeons & Dragons: Evil At Baldur’s Gate #1
Print Edition | Digital
Written by Jim Zub
Art by Dean Kotz
Colors by Stefani Rennee
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Covers by Max Dunbar and Joanna Lafuente, Dean Kotz and Joanna Lafuente, Dean Kotz, Max Dunbar
IDW Publishing
Release Date: April 25, 2018
Cover Price: $3.99

Straight from the hip, there is nothing serious about Dungeons & Dragons: Evil At Baldur’s Gate #1 except that it is seriously fun. Imagine, if you will, that we had a mashup of the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon with Teen Titans Go! and it was presented in comic book form. That is essentially what we have here. It’s certainly entertaining, but also, just as certainly, not deep in plot or characters.

When you think of the James Bond films or really any of Ian Fleming’s 007 tales, you think of cool cars, quirky bad guys, and amazing gadgets. But James Bond: M, a new one-shot comic from Dynamite Entertainment, approaches things a little differently. This time it is all about the man behind the agent.

Black Betty #1
Written by Shawn Gabborin
Art by Michela Da Sacco
Colors by Rosa “Rosakaz” Rantila
Covers by Michela Da Sacco, Marco Maccagni, Dan Mendoza
Action Lab Comics: Danger Zone
Release Date: February 14, 2018
Cover Price: $4.99

I just stumbled onto this one, folks. Interesting thing about Black Betty #1 is that we start off seeing her use her power and she’s just as confused as we are. Black Betty is not just a paranormal bounty hunter, she’s also got a neat little retro vibe going on. She is a fixer of the highest order but she’s not free.

I am curious to see where this character goes based on the first issue. I liked it but it really kept me in the dark, even ending on a high note. Give it a whirl, you fight find it as enticing as I did.

Archaia Entertainment
Boom! Studios
Release Date: September 13, 2017
Cover Price: $24.99

I’m a bit late to this party, friends. But I can tell you that it was worth waiting for, without any reservations. Jane is inspired by the classic Jane Eyre but this graphic novel is a work of art unto itself. I have no idea why I waited so long to pick it up but I would literally kick myself if I could, no pun intended.
