“World of Tanks: Roll Out!” Issue #4 has unleashed today! Limited time Comic Book Mode takes over Tanks on Console

First Comics News - Wed, 01/04/2017 - 21:34


January 4, 2016 — Issue # 4 of the World of Tanks: Roll Out comic is available today in comic book stores across North America, Australia, Western Europe and Eastern Europe. Digital editions of the issue can also be purchased directly from Dark Horse Digital. Alongside the launch of the latest issue, tankers on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 can play the game in a special comic filter, with the Comic Book Mode available today.

In this exciting issue, all hell breaks loose in “God of Battles”, the penultimate chapter of the World of Tanks: Roll Out comic book series. Wargaming’s tale of hard-hitting tank combat continues on the smoky battlefields of post D-Day Normandy. British tanks receive heavy fire as they are overwhelmed by a hidden Sturmgeschütz (StuG) sneak attack, while the German soldiers and armored forces despair when the combat reaches its crescendo.

Commemorating the launch of the latest issue of the World of Tanks: Roll Out series, the in-game art has been redrawn to match the comic book style. Tankers will be greeted with a penciled sheen that will immerse console players in a genuine comic experience. Additionally, a special Open Fire Bundle will be available in all printed copies of issue #4, exclusive to tankers on console. This bundle is loaded with in-game items, a platform specific T1 Tank and in-game content including garage slots, fully trained crews and more!

Marvel’s Deadliest Denizens Square Off in DEADPOOL VS. THE PUNISHER #1!

First Comics News - Wed, 01/04/2017 - 21:19

New York, NY—January 4th, 2017 — It’s the grudge match of the century! Two Marvel mainstays will clash in a barrage of bullets and blades! Lock and load, True Believers, because one humorless anti-hero is about to go head-to-head with one odorous super-zero! Oh yeah, we’re talking about DEADPOOL VS. THE PUNISHER #1 – the brand-new 5-issue limited series coming your way this April! Creators Fred Van Lente (Slapstick, Deadpool) and Pere Perez (Power Man and Iron Fist, Archer and Armstrong) put two of the Marvel Universe’s deadliest on a high-octane collision course that will have you on the edge of your seat!

Frank Castle – a man of unstoppable will, and a powerful desire to punish those who do wrong, rooted in the tragic killing of his family. Wade Wilson – the mercenary with the unstoppable mouth, and an knack for annoying those around him, rooted in the thought that he’s funny. An old friend from Deadpool’s past, codename: The Bank, has re-emerged. With financial ties to criminal operations all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before Frank Castle looks to put an end to The Bank once and for all. Just one problem, Deadpool isn’t going to let that happen without a fight!

“When the Punisher decides to bring The Bank down,” says writer Fred Van Lente in an interview with Marvel.com. “He’s gotta go through Deadpool to do it, and you know what? Frank doesn’t really have a problem with that, since he doesn’t like Wade all that much anyway.”

These two are in for the most brutal fight of their lives. As the destruction ratchets up to unthinkable levels, who will be left standing when the dust settles? Find out when both DEADPOOL VS. THE PUNISHER #1 & #2 come to comic shops and digital devices everywhere this April!

Wednesday Comics: Storm: The Creeping Death

Sorcerer's Skull - Wed, 01/04/2017 - 12:00
My exploration of the long-running euro-comic Storm, continues. Earlier installments can be found here.

Storm: The Creeping Death (1982) (part 4)
(Dutch: De Sluimerende Dood)
Art & script by Don Lawrence

Storm and Huatl, back in the hands of the Manatecs, will be forced to face someone named Kuadro in the duel. At the appointed time, they are led into an arena where ancient missiles risen--worshipped as gods by these people too.

Kuadro awaits the two prisoners on the opposite end of a narrow walkway across a pit filled with mordillos. It's time for the fight to begin, and Kuadro drops his poncho:


Storm is overmatched by a foe with four arms. He's knocked from the walkway but manages to hang on until Kuadro stabs him in the hand. Storm's other hand reaches for something to save him. He grabs a metal bar--which turns out to be a lever. The platform begins to turn. Kuadro is thrown off balance and falls into the pit.

Storm is declared the victor and the new leader. Storm demures from the office, offering Huatl in his place--after he returns. Before the Manatec people can respond, the two race into the tunnel the god-missiles emerge from. The two jump on the transports that carry the missiles along a track through the subterranean tunnel. Huatl thinks this all is the work of the gods, but Storm explains that ancient humans made this (though he wonders at what the power source must be).

The two reach an area where the air is thick. Vegetation has grown over the ventilation. The two lose consciousness. When Storm awakens, the transports have stopped in a massive assembly hall, and a horror is in front of them:


The spider grabs Huatl and begins to enrapt him in webbing. Thinking quickly, Storm wipes grease from the transport's axle so he can climb over the web without sticking. He manages to do that without drawing the attention of the spider and free Huatl.

No sooner is that done than the two have to sprint after the transport, which has began moving again.

ALTERNA KICKS OFF NEW YEAR WITH NEW LOGO AND LOWER PRICES

First Comics News - Wed, 01/04/2017 - 09:06

For 10 years, Alterna Comics has produced over 50 different graphic novels for distribution in comic shops and bookstores.  Now entering their 11th year, Alterna is announcing plans for a single issue lineup that will feature throwback style covers, a new logo, prices under $1.99 an issue, and the distant but familiar feel of newsprint.

Alterna publisher Peter Simeti explains, “When I fell in love with comics, it was an entire experience.  The stories, the imagery, and the paper.  There was almost nothing else like reading a comic book.  It was a fragile thing, but durable at the same time.  Printed on newsprint with a thin, but glossy, cover, you could roll the comic – not that you’d necessarily want to – and they were lightweight and had a floppy feel.  The smell and feel of the pages is something that no longer occurs on the new comic book day release wall, yet it’s prevalent in back issue bins across the country.  Our goal is to create a comic book that would “feel” like it just came out of a shop from 30 years ago.”

Alterna is a creator-owned company with an open door submissions policy.  Known for producing the FUBAR series, THE CHAIR (which has been adapted to a film that stars the late Roddy Piper), the IF anthology, NOVO, LILITH DARK, MOTHER RUSSIA, CROAK, and many more.  Alterna’s lineup has been an eclectic one over the past ten years.

Simeti not only aims to replicate the feel of yesteryear’s comic books, but also the pricing, “While most companies seem to be trying to out do each other with premium paper stocks and escalating price tags, we’re aiming to make comics affordable and bring back a practicality to single issues. We’re not in the business of making collectibles first and comics second.  These won’t be variant covers or variant issues, just basic comic books.  We’re happy to leave the premium paper stocks to our graphic novel line, which we will still be producing.  Right now, we’re aiming to launch this line with a few issues priced from $1 to $1.99, in Spring/Summer 2017.”

Homicide charges against Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka are dropped

First Comics News - Wed, 01/04/2017 - 08:30

A Pennsylvania judge Judge Kelly Banach has dropped the homicide charges against Jimmy Snuka, who was accused of killing his girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, in a case that dates back to 1983.

The decision to dismiss the charges were based on Jimmy Snuka’s medical records, the 73-year-old, was determined not mentally fit to stand trial. Snuka is suffering from dementia, which was caused in large part due to head trauma sustained in the ring.

The Lehigh County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement. “We’re considering our options and will decide at the appropriate time what action we’ll take,”

Debuting January 15, 2017- Bibliorati-For Readers and Those Who Write For Them

First Comics News - Tue, 01/03/2017 - 18:22
Finally, there is (or will be on January 15) a place for readers to connect with Writers and discover new and older works while keeping up with the latest in publishing and reading news.  That place is Bibliorati.
Bibliorati will feature daily news from publishers and authors, from the brand new to the old guard, and will also reach out to readers through writers of today. From reviews to interviews to articles on a particular aspect of books or genre or reading, writers and readers alike will introduce readers, brand new as well as lifelong practitioners of the art, to new vistas, raising awareness of works by current authors and publishers today as well as revealing past works that readers may enjoy.Bibliorati is where readers can find out about books, genres, authors, and publishers they may not be aware of and want to support. And contributors to the site will enrich readers, sending them in new directions. It is also where Publishers and Writers may find one another, where audiences can be expanded, and books that deserve more attention can finally get it.

  There will be a core group of columnists, most who will have one column appear weekly. These columns will either be reviews, interviews with writers and publishers, or articles that focus on a certain type of book, themes, genres, etc.  This isn’t a ‘how to write’ site, but more of a ‘how and what to read’ experience.  The goal is to connect readers with writers they either have never known or maybe are familiar with and just want to know more about.  As a side note, ideally, we want three columns a day each week of new material, done by one columnist. We will be starting with two columns on most days, one on others.   The rest of the content for the site will be made up of news that we hope writers and publishers, such as Yourself, will provide.     We want to keep readers informed of all the things that are going on in the reading/literary world, but as this is a labor of interest without pay, we don’t have someone who can go out scouting all the news.  That’s why if You wish to have news featured on Bibliorati, please be sure to regularly send it along to Biblioratione@gmail.com and we’ll get it posted when the site goes live on January 15, 2017.  We will also simultaneously post it to the Facebook page, which will be live today, and our Twitter account, which will be set up about the time the site is.  New releases, promotions, submissions calls, etc., all news is welcome.   What is the price for this service? Well, there is one….   We want Bibliorati to be a go to place for readers. To that end, we are going to be regularly promoting the site in as many venues as possible and putting the site in front of, so to speak, publishers and press outlets of all types, wanting them to not only use Bibliorati as a source of content, but to discover writers and such that should be discovered.  So, what we would ask all of You to do is to mobilize Your market, Your fan base, Your regulars to not only read Bibliorati, but to talk about it and spread the word.  We can’t force you to do this, but we’d like Your help in making Bibliorati work for us all.     Join us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Bibliorati-1735817210070643/?fref=ts. Email any news to Biblioratione@gmail.com and ask any questions You may have there or at this email.   Hope We can Help You, Tommy Hancock

DARK HORSE ADAPTS MELVILLE’S WHALE OF A TALE INTO A GRAPHIC NOVEL!

First Comics News - Tue, 01/03/2017 - 17:54

Dark Horse Books is proud to announce the Vents d’Ouest graphic novel adaptation of Herman Melville’s timeless classic Moby Dick, available in English for the first time on February 8, 2017.

A masterpiece of French literary comics, this hardcover edition collects both Vents d’Ouest volumes and features illustrations by the award-winning French author and artist Christophe Chabouté (Purgatoire, Tout Seul). Striking black-and-white frames faithfully capture this Great American Novel as we follow the revenge-seeking voyage of Captain Ahab.

The graphic adaptation is perfect for literature lovers looking for a unique spin on the tale of the great white whale. The English edition includes a foreword by John Arcudi (Dead Inside, Rumble).

“No comics adaptation I’ve seen has come close to doing what Christophe Chabouté does right here in this graphic novel…His storytelling, his pacing, matches Melville’s perfectly,” said Arcudi. “He does it with obvious love for Melville’s poetic writing, and he has the advantage of a great gift for drawing that allows him to give light to those potent words. He can almost hypnotize us with his gorgeous, grand, rhythmic art.”

Moby Dick is available for preorder at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, IndieBound, Things From Another World, DarkHorse.com, and more!

Comments: The art is simple.
Amelia is faced with a strange man who happens to have magical powers. Amelia is still having conversations with that voice in her head.
Amelia finds her two younger sisters in the graveyard. The girls are having an adventure and acting realistically in the given situation. The story is moving along like a movie. It does though stay low key.
There is a lot going on and no explanation as to why. The Hesperan Gate is a magical gateway to the universe. It is very simply drawn. The adventure does start going into high gear.

Comments: The fate of the Earth hangs in the balance on what Robo and his friends do. Plus one scientist Doctor Lu that knows how to either fix or destroy a weapon of mass destruction.
Robo gets to keep fighting the man with the reality warping energy inside him. The fight gets strange as does the man. The warping energy seems to be warping him. The ending to this battle is explosive but anti-climatic.
Poor Robo he wins the battle but loses the girl. It makes you feel sad for him. He is a world savior but still unlucky in love.
Robo shows us his main weapon is his fist. It would be better to have more to him than just a robot that punches things. t would be great to see him use his brain more.
The imaginary of the villain the glowing man is nicely done. He standing out on a page. The coloring makes him pop out at you.

Comments: Faith is trying on new takes on her costume. None look all that good on her. The original though is still the best.
Here why people watch horror movies is explained.
Faith does start to see things here. Or are they real? Is this some sort of attack? Those that died around her and were close to her are haunting her. Faith though is strong enough to know there deaths were not her fault.
Faith is handling it but is she really. Hiding from something is not handling it. She is not one to hide from something though. A good nights sleep though never hurt.
It is easy to see she is troubled by this and uncertain how to fight against it. How does one fight your dreams or imagination?
Faith does show us she is so strong as she does not once give in to her fears.

Comments: Here the Green Lanterns who survived their Universe’s destruction have joined with Star Fleet.
In outer space the Enterprise and Green Lanterns are illustrated beautifully as they protect a space station.
Hal Jordan’s personality and Captain Kirk’s are very similar. They are both take charge types and they both are willing to take chances.
This issue basically sets up for the next ones. So not a lot of action but more information.
Sinestro now rules the Klingon Empire. He has figured out that Oa and the Guardians of the Universe may exist in this new Universe he finds himself in. At least a version of them. It looks as if Hal may figure it out to. So the race will be on.

Comments: Harley Quinn makes an escape and goes right to her Puddin’. Harley Quinn in costume looks amazing and yes sexy to.
Joker and Harley have joined with Shredder and his henchmen. The art is animated style like in the animated cartoon.
Batman, Robin and Batgirl team-up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
There are some fun moments. There are also more villains.
The classic fight scene between the good guys is well done. We get to see April and Batgirl mix it up to. Batman and Robin against the Turtles have fun while battling each other.
The story well there is none. You get lots of characters but there is no plot at all.
The art works well enough but is for a younger audience. Batman is tough, grim and angry looking and Batgirl is cute. The Turtles are a bit weird. April is drawn very nice looking. Robin is a kid wearing red with an R. Read the comic that last sentence wil make sense and make you laugh.
