Valiant Comics X-O MANOWAR #1 (2017) – OFFICIAL TRAILER

First Comics News - Thu, 03/23/2017 - 17:17

Valiant is proud to reveal your first look at the fully animated video trailer for X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Divinity, Ninjak, Mind MGMT) and a rotating cast of powerhouse artists – including Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: War Mother, Bloodshot Reborn), Doug Braithwaite (Armor Hunters, Bloodshot U.S.A.), Clayton Crain (Rai, Carnage), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), and Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn) – that together will span the series’ first year in 2017 and beyond!

The single biggest Valiant release of 2017 is here! In comics shops everywhere now, find out why Matt Kindt & Tomas Giorello are delivering one of the year’s most acclaimed new series debuts with an awe-inspiring vision of superhero-driven science fiction.

A stunning new beginning for Valiant’s most enduring icon begins now with part one of “SOLDIER” – a punishing, three-issue introduction that will push Aric of Dacia beyond the farthest limits of our galaxy…and into the brutal opening salvo of the ultimate X-O Manowar tale ever told!

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.

But that was a lifetime ago.

Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.

But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!

This spring, Matt Kindt and Tomas Giorello forge a new comic book legend for the 21st century as Earth’s most relentless warrior brings conquest to the stars, only in X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 – featuring covers by Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn), Kenneth Rocafort (Inhumans vs. X-Men), Mico Suayan (Thor), J.G. Jones (Final Crisis), and Monika Palosz (Divinity III: Stalinverse)!

Presented in the brand-new VALIANT PREMIUM format – complete with a deluxe matte finish cover stock cover, heavyweight interior pages, and minimal advertisements for an uninterrupted storytelling experience – this deluxe form of comic book packaging was created specifically to supplement each issue of X-O MANOWAR in 2017 and beyond. Don’t miss Aric of Dacia’s one-man domination of a battle-scarred alien world – one that will force him onto the front lines of an eons-old extraterrestrial battlefield, and will send him into the deepest reaches of space – in X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1…in stores now!!

JIM ROSS’ WIFE JAN PASSES AWAY

First Comics News - Thu, 03/23/2017 - 04:00

03/29/2012 – Mr & Mrs Jim Ross – WWE Art & Fashion Show Arrivals – Star Island – Miami Beach,FL. USA – Keywords: WWE Superstar Orientation: Portrait Face Count: 1 – False – Photo Credit: robert mulrenin / PR Photos – Contact (1-866-551-7827) – Portrait Face Count: 1

On Tuesday Jim Ross reported “My wife Jan, my little angel, was hit while riding her Vespa & has multiple skull fractures. She’s in surgery now. We need a miracle.”

Today Jim Ross tweeted “A Priest gave my wife Jan her last rites tonight. My little Angel is gone.”

Jim Ross wrote on his blog:

We were a team in WWE. I was a “coach” and Jan was the best coach’s wife ever. She loved the talents and their spouses, invited them into our home, cooked for them and even did some of their laundry that they would bring over. Some of the Attitude Era’s biggest stars were made to feel welcome in our home over the years thanks to my wife.

She helped me battle thru multiple bouts of depression as a result of the multiple, Bells palsy attacks, my dependence on Ambian, and nursed me to back health after serious, colon surgery that threatened my life and she never complained one time.

This woman loves me more than I’ll ever deserve and simply knowing her has enriched my life to levels that I can never repay.

RICH REVIEWS: Killing Moon # 1

First Comics News - Thu, 03/23/2017 - 03:14

Title: Killing Moon # 1
Publisher: PigDog Press
Script: Chris Denton
Art/Cover: Bhuna
Colour: Darren Stephens
Lettering: Bolt-01
Consulting Editor: Richmond Clements
Back Cover: Matthew Soffe
Price: £3.50
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Website: comicsy.co.uk/pigdogpress/
Comments: Three Killing Moon assassins for hire are paid to assassinate an evil necromancer. Moses, McKie, and Ingrid make up this team.
The castle of the necromancer is a dark ominous site. You can tell evil resides within. Then we see Fred and Nobby two of the necromancer’s guards and they are portrayed as just ordinary working Joe’s. These guys are likable.
The art illustrating the characters could use more detail. For the most, it is well done. The walking dead are not overly frightening but they do convey their violent intentions easy enough.
The action starts out fairly slow but steadily builds in intensity. They even take on a dragon of sorts. The necromancer adds a twist to the story that will catch you by surprise.
All the pin-ups are beautifully rendered.
This is a wonderfully entertaining tale of adventure of sword and sorcery that will leave you wanting more.

Price: $ 3.99 US
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Website: www.actionlabcomics.com
Comments: This book contains 27 pages of comic book content too intense for the faint of heart.
Here the two supernatural fighters Zombie Tramp and Vampblade seem to have switched bodies? Now as they fight an alien space vampire things take an unexpected turn. Ok, things really turn weird.
We find out who is leading these alien space vampires, the Suck Lord. Yes really.
Two hot babes in skin-tight black outfits face the Suck Lord and yes there are sexual references in the art. Then they are all naked.
More body switching and everybody is back where they belong. Vampblade sticks her butt out for a big close-up butt shot.
Two babes fighting alien space vampire worms and one Suck Lord, of course, make for one weird book that is kind of sexy too.

Wednesday Comic: Head Lopper #5

Sorcerer's Skull - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 11:00

Andrew MacLean's quarterly heroic fantasy comic Head Lopper returned last week with the first part of a new story arc: "And the Crimson Tower." I've discussed Head Lopper before, pimping the collection of the first storyline. In brief, it's the adventures of a burly, bearded warrior with a flair for decapitation and an unusual sidekick--the still-living, severed head of a witch he decapitated.


This new arc starts off with a setup pretty much as D&D as you can get. Head Lopper, his friends, some plucky little humanoids, and some ne'er-do-well adventures, enter the Crimson Tower of Ulrich the Twice Damned. It's pretty much a killer dungeon with puzzles, deadly traps, and a fight with a three-headed dragon automaton.

BEST REVIEW EVER: Valiant High #2

First Comics News - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 00:25

TITLE: Valiant High #2 (of 4)
PUBLISHER: Valiant
WRITER: Daniel Kibblesmith
ILLUSTRATOR: Derek Charm
COLORS: David Baron
LETTERS: Simon Bowland
EDITOR: Lauren Hitzhusen
COVER: David Lafuente
PRICE: $3.99
RATING:
WEBSITE: comixology.com
SUMMARY: Welcome back to Valiant High! The big homecoming dance looms ever closer for Amanda, Faith, Pete, and everyone else at Valiant High. Will Charlene get her revenge on Amanda for embarrassing her via text to her crush? And will Faith finally reappear? But most importantly: will Amanda pass her practical driving exam – and will she survive Bloodball (Coach Bloodshot’s vicious, powers-allowed version of dodgeball) without her bestie’s help?
COMMENTS: What if the Valiant Universe existed inside Riverdale High? That is the question here. If you are a fan of Archie and a fan of Valiant this is clearly a comic you can’t miss. The art is by Derek Charm of Jughead fame so that really gives this comic an Archie Comics feel. In this alternate Valiant Universe, the heroes are broken up into to faculty and students. Dr. Miage is a Teacher, Bloodshot is the Gym Coach and Toyo Harada is the school Principal, and everyone else is a student. The Eternal Warrior becomes the Eternal Sophmore, etc. The kids are learning to be heroes but with all the teen angst that goes with high school. It a fun and different take on some classic characters. I really enjoyed the story so far and well worth checking out. There are plenty of moments to appreciate for long time Valiant fans and it should still be fun if you haven’t read Valiant before.
