The Disciples #1
The Disciples #1
Written by Steve Niles
Art by Christopher Mitten
Colors by Jay Fotos
Letters by Thomas Mauer
Black Mask Studios
Release Date: May 27, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Part bounty hunter saga with nods to Alien and Firefly, The Disciples starts off with a slow build that turns into a big bang in the first issue of what may shape up to be a very exciting series.

The Disciples #1 starts with three companions heading to Ganymede, one of Jupiter’s moons. It and the other moons in the solar system have recently been colonized in a Gold Rush-style land rush. Ganymede was settled by a religious cult (that started in Florida, obviously). One of the members of this cult is the daughter of a senator, and our three heroes have been sent to bring her back. Of course, the start of their journey doesn’t go as planned, and right from the beginning they encounter one creepy-ass alien who does not seem to come in peace.

The GoD List

Each and every week, I, “Free Comic Books?” Henchman 21 and “Free Comics Books!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for May 2, 2015 — Free Comic Book Day. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Hooray! It’s Free Comic Book Day 2015, the best day of the year to find a local comic book store, head on down, and get some comics. If you’ve got a good store in the area, they should be having special events, creators signing books, or special sales. When you go to that good store, make sure you try to buy something from them today, because while these books may be free to you, they are not free for your friendly neighborhood retailer. It really helps them if you buy something. If you’ve got a bad comic store in your area, then they may be trying to charge you for these special FCBD issues. Do not let them!

We are going to do our normal thing and give you the heads up on some of the issues that you can find today. Pretty much every publisher has a special issue, although availability may depend on the stores in your area. You can also go online to find a lot of good digital deals today from online sellers.

So, let’s get out there and spread some comics love and enjoy a free as always The GoD List!

Comic Review: Star Trek – Gold Key Archives, Volume 1

BAADASSSSS!   |

Star Trek
Star Trek: Gold Key Archives, Volume 1
Hardcover | Kindle
Story by Dick Wood
Art by Nevio Zaccara and Alberto Giolitti
IDW Publishing
Release Date: April 15, 2014
Cover Price: $29.99

The first Star Trek comics began publication under the Poughkeepsie, NY-based Gold Key Comics (which at one point or another in time held the comic license to nearly every popular show on television, from The Avengers to Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea) in July 1967, three months after the television show’s debut season ended. Since it was never a ratings bonanza, Star Trek had to rely on support from fans and critics in order to stay on the air and the exploitation of the property in multi-media aided the cause immeasurably.

The Gold Key comic proved to be a hit with readers, ultimately running for 61 issues – a 62nd issue was planned but went unpublished – and helping to establish Star Trek as a viable property outside of the cathode ray box. Subsequent titles in the franchise would be released by Marvel, DC, and currently IDW Publishing. In Star Trek: Gold Key Archives Volume 1, IDW, which has owned the Trek comics license since November 2006, reprints the first six issues of the Gold Key run that were released from July 1967 to December 1969 and presents them in a single full-color hardcover volume, complete with the original photo covers.

LCS 2012

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past few weeks, chances are you have heard about the latest social issue flooding the Internet, the media, and hipster activists everywhere. Well, this geek sat down and thought to himself, “How can I make a difference for people I care about, and things I care about?”

Folks, here’s my answer: LCS 2012.

Basically what I’m proposing is that if you buy comics (and if you’re a reader of Geeks of Doom, that’s a pretty solid bet), I urge you to do as I do — Support your local comic shop.

Local comic shops are very high on the list of endangered geeks species. “They’re just another business,” I hear you say. But even as you say that, you know that’s not true. Local comic shops are something so much more than just a business, and they need our help.

Marvel Four

Marvel has been releasing preview images this week to announce the next big story for one of their flagship titles, Fantastic Four, and specifically the return the of currently left-for-dead Human Torch.

Monday Fantastic Four teaser

The images started on Monday with a simple “4” over a picture of the Earth, possibly signally a return of the original line up. We got a bit of a change up with Tuesday’s image, which showed the current team, complete with Spider-Man, in their Future Foundation uniforms. Wednesday brought us the big one though, with a big beautiful image of the original team, complete with Johnny Storm. Wednesday’s teaser was drawn by Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada. The only words in the announcement were a simple “Coming November 2011.”

TokyoPop Closes North American Publishing Division

A few years ago, you couldn’t go into a bookstore without running into an aisle of kids in the manga section, and odds are, they were reading a series published by TokyoPop. Unfortunately, the last few years have not been kind to the company, and TokyoPop has announced this week that they are closing their North American publishing division as of May 31, 2011. They will maintain their film and television operations, as well as their European offices. The news was first reported on The Beat and the Anime News Network and then TokyoPop CEO and founder Stu Levy also confirmed the move on the company’s webpage.

TokyoPop was one of the major publishers of manga boom of the early and mid 2000s. Over its lifetime, the company has released hundreds of volumes of manga, video game and anime soundtracks, magazines, and DVDs. Even more surprising is the timing of the move, as it comes just before the release of the first film produced by TokyoPop, Priest. Priest is based on a Korean Manhwa by Min-Woo Hyung, and was released in the U.S. by TokyoPop, and is reaching the big screen on May 13th, and stars Paul Bettany. Apparently, even the potential money the movie could have made would not have been able to change this decision.

Are You Buying More DC Comics Titles This Month?

DC Comics

We’re well into the first month of DC Comics new initiative to lower (or maintain) prices across the board on all of their regular monthly titles without sacrificing the quality of stories [Read DC Comics Drops Price On Comics To $2.99].

But in addition to sharing the $2.99 price point, most regular titles have something else in common: white backgrounds.

Not only does it make the artwork “pop,” but it dominated the new comics wall at my local shop, causing me to consider picking up a few new titles to my mostly Marvel hold file.

If you want to see what I mean, check out the thumbnails embedded below courtesy of DC’s official blog The Source. Also, let us know which new titles you added this month from DC in our comments section.

New ‘Black Panther’ Film In The Works From Marvel Studios
space
Tom Cheredar   |

A new film based on the comic book super-hero Black Panther is in development by Marvel Studios.

Black Panther is the alter identity of T’Challa, king of the African nation of Wakanda, who made his debut in Fantastic Four #52 and later starred in a solo title that is credited as being the first to feature a black super-hero as the lead.

Marvel has tapped documentary film maker Mark Bailey to pen the new movie, which may give some sort of indication about the overall tone we’re likely to see on the big screen.

One notable element present in Black Panther comics has been the ability for the fictitious African nation to juggle its political relationships with other countries who would like trade deals of Wakanda’s most valuable resource — a nearly indestructible metal called Vibranium. It would be interesting to see a District 9-style telling of Black Panther as opposed to the standard super-hero movie that has become all too common in the last decade.
