Wednesday Comics: Storm: The Slayer of Eriban (part 4)

Sorcerer's Skull - Wed, 11/08/2017 - 12:00
My exploration of the long-running euro-comic Storm, continues with his adventures in the world of Pandarve. Earlier installments can be found here.


Storm: The Slayer of Eriban (1985) 
(Dutch: De Doder van Eriban) (part 4)
Art by Don Lawrence; script by Martin Lodewijk

In the unwilling service of  the assassin Renter Ka Rauw, Storm and friends set sail for the capital of the strangely shaped planetoid of Marrow. Not long after they are underway, Storm discovers a stowaway, a young boy who really wants to learn to play chess.

Renter immediately wants him thrown overboard. Storm tries to argue, but Renter reminds him who's boss:


Renter suggests a fishing vessel will like pick him up, but then two eel-like sheels come swimming toward him! Storm swims out to try and save him, and surprisingly Renter tries to help out as well. 


Ultimately, It falls to Ember to rescue Renter with a well-placed arrow, though he insists he never needed her help at all. Still, her efforts convince him to let the boy stay aboard until the next port.

Along the way, Storm teaches the boy chess, Renter even gets in on the game after picking up the rules by watching, but he throws a bit of a tantrum when Storm wins.

Soon, they arrive in the capital city of Rommily:


After docking, they say goodbye to the boy, Tillio, who plans to make a living teaching people chess. Renter plans to go into the city and find where the Barsaman games are going to be held. He takes Ember with him and commands Storm and Nomad to stay with the ship.

As soon as Renter is out of sight, Storm goes ashore too. He plans to find the authorities and warn them of Renter's planned assassination of their ruler. It reassures Nomad he'll be back before Renter and Ember return.

Storm locates some guards, but when he warns them of the assassination, he does get the response he hoped for.

VIOLET SHADOW #0 FREE INCENTIVE WITH FEMFORCE #182

First Comics News - Wed, 11/08/2017 - 05:03

It’s a cornucopia of treasures and treats as The FEMFORCE open their 34Th year of publication with issue #182.

First off, the man who created it all, BILL BLACK is on board, both writing AND drawing a 15-page SYNN story that is just TOO COOL to describe here!!

Rest assured that if you are an old-time reader pining for “the good old days”, this story will satisfy those longings- IN SPADES!!

Then, the full team is back in action fighting together in a very DIFFERENT kind of FEMFORCE story; “The Taming Of The Shrew”, written by longtime AC fan favorite Eric Lindberg., fondly remembered for his long-running “Rowena” series. This is Eric’s first foray into writing the FF girls themselves, and he hits THIS one OUT of the BALLPARK on his FIRST SWING!!

The FEMFORCE have fought a LOT of different villains over the years, but NO ONE like…The SHREW!!

Next, acclaimed UK writer (currently writing the screenplay for a horror flick to be lensed on TWO continents, by the way)Andrew Hawnt teams up TARA and The Snarling SHE-CAT in “Pursuit of Paradise”. A misguided NASA scientist uses stolen technology to do the WRONG thing for all the RIGHT reasons, and the FF duo must fix the de-evolution of large parts of Central Florida.

Then, an UNTOLD TALE of the 1950’s sends MS VICTORY near the Arctic Circle to unravel “The Polar Bare Affair”; again written by Bossman Bill Black, and illustrated by Dave Matsuoka.

All this and lots more in FEMFORCE #182, 80 pages; black and white with color covers, standard comic book size and saddle-stitched. Available at your local comic dealer in March 2018 for $9.95.

But wait; there’s more!!

In conjunction with the release of FEMFORCE #182, AC COMICS is producing a special promotional comic book starring writer Andrew Hawnt’s breakout guest-heroine that has caused a sensation appearing in the last few issues of FEMFORCE; the mysterious martial-arts vigilante known as The VIOLET SHADOW!!

The concluding chapter of this book will complete the VS storyline that has run in Femforce #’s 179 and 180, and getting one will be the only way to read this powerful denouement.

VIOLET SHADOW #0 will be a 24-page, full comic book sized “freestanding” black and white comic book with color covers that reprises and completes the full VIOLET SHADOW trilogy. If you want this book, you’ll need to make arrangements with your local retailer, as the only way it will be available is as a comic shop retailer incentive promo; one copy absolutely FREE to any retailer that orders three copies of FEMFORCE #182.

FF #182 and VIOLET SHADOW #0 incentive promo comic book are only available through your local comic book retailer out of the January 2018 issue of the Diamond Previews catalog.

Move Over SECRET EMPIRE, The Most Controversial Graphic Novel of the Year is Here

First Comics News - Tue, 11/07/2017 - 20:16

Introducing: UnPresidential

A Book So Polarizing, Political and Provocative

It Had to be Printed in Korea

(Also, It was Cheaper to Print in Korea. But Still.)

November, 7, 2017) If you think comic book readers and retailers were outraged about Captain America being a Nazi in the pages of Marvel Entertainment’s SECRET EMPIRE event, wait til they get their hands on UnPresidential, the new graphic novel from Man Vs Rock. In the sure-to-be controversial book, Kim Jong Un runs for President of the United States…. And wins.

Co-writers Kevin Bieber and Victor Reynolds and artist Jeremy Labib deliver a SOUTH PARK-style, no holds barred takedown of all parties. Donald Trump and Mike Pence. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Chris Christie, Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz. Kathy Griffin and Bono. Edward Snowden and Nate Silver. The NFL’s Roger Goodell. No one is safe from UnPresidential’s spray of satire—not even founding father, George Washington. Deemed too dangerous to be printed in the United States, UnPresidential is being printed in Korea and will be published by Man vs. Rock and distributed by  Z2 Comics on November 21st, a year after last year’s explosive election.

“UnPresidential is the book for everyone who buys Hillary Clinton’s What Happened, but doesn’t have time to read it,” said writer Kevin Bieber. “It’s the perfect book for everyone who wants to read a thoughtful and insightful look at the future of our political system but ends up channel surfing 1980’s action movies instead.”

In UnPresidential, President Trump has mysteriously disappeared between tweets. The United States must hold a special election to replace him, but Americans are sick and tired of the crooked, low-energy candidates churned out by the right and left. Due to a little-known loophole in the U.S. Constitution, a surprising candidate emerges to take America by storm… a man of action who comes from a family of strong leaders and isn’t afraid to push the button. Enter: Kim Jong Un.

“The book is still weeks from publication, and already One Million Moms won’t return our calls,” said Victor Reynolds. “We know if they just give this book a chance, they will be offended. Whether you were with her or wanted him to build a wall, UnPresidential will make your jaw drop.”

God bless America.  This November, let’s make North Korea great again.

Valiant’s Unveils EXTREME ULTRA-FOIL Covers for QUANTUM AND WOODY! #1-#4 – Lighting Up Comics Shops Beginning on December 20th!

First Comics News - Tue, 11/07/2017 - 19:56

Valiant is proud to reveal the pupil-scorching “EXTREME ULTRA-FOIL” shelf covers debuting on QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1-4 – the opening salvo of the ALL-NEW and UNPREDICTABLE ONGOING SERIES from rising star Daniel Kibblesmith (The Late Night With Stephen Colbert) and explosive artist Kano (Daredevil)! Beginning on December 20th, kick nostalgia in the nards as the world’s worst superhero team returns to comic shops everywhere with a dynamic, new(ish) cover treatment EMBOSSED and ENHANCED with AUTHENTIC COMICS FOIL FROM THE ‘90s (really!) and featuring artwork by superstar artist Geoff Shaw (God Country) across the series’ first 12 issues!

Now, for the first time, we’re also pulling back the curtain to reveal just how Valiant’s publishing team set about recovering and repurposing real, unused production materials from the height of ‘90s comic book excess! Last summer, Valiant sent a small group of employees to a specialized embossing and stamping factory outside of Montreal, Canada, where they discovered a treasure trove of unused comic foils once thought lost to history… Released from the archives for the first time in more than two decades, these rare foils will now find a new life on the first 12 issues of QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) as EXTREME ULTRA-FOIL shelf covers, as chronicled in this exclusive production featurette:

Available at the standard cover price with no minimum order qualifications for retailers, relive the face-melting radditude of the era that gloriously birthed Quantum and Woody into comics history with the best foil covers ever produced by a major comics publisher when Valiant’s EXTREME ULTRA-FOIL VARIANTS come stomping back into comic shops everywhere!

THEN: Don’t relax, we’re not through here yet… Fans and collectors can get their chase on with Valiant’s EXTREME ULTRA-FOIL CHASE VARIANT subset! Each month, in the tradition of comics’ most highly sought-after oddities and error editions, Valiant will produce a single, STRICTLY LIMITED-RUN VARIANT of Geoff Shaw’s EXTREME ULTRA-FOIL artwork with A RARE, SPECIALIZED and SUPREMELY WACKY ‘90s FOIL!

And of course, let’s not forget the piece de resistance! Valiant is doing something it can’t take back with QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1: THE MOST VARIANT COVER OF ALL TIME! This unholy and experimental combination of comic book history’s most noted, notorious, and obnoxious cover gimmicks will feature AT LEAST EIGHT SEPARATE PROCESSES – chromium, lenticular, embossing, die-cutting, iridescent ink, glow-in-the-dark and more – onto one highly limited, meticulously crafted variant cover featuring the artwork of acclaimed artist Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG)!

(Makes Italian kissing sound with fingers)

All the milestones of comic book history have led to this! Stand back and take notice as QUANTUM AND WOODY (2017) #1 comes out swinging on December 20th – featuring covers by Julian Totino Tedesco (Hawkeye), Geoff Shaw (Thanos), Nick Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects), comics legend Neal Adams (Green Lantern/Green Arrow), and Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS) alongside every single gimmick known to man!

ARCANA STUDIO JANUARY 2018 SOLICITATIONS

First Comics News - Mon, 11/06/2017 - 21:47
ARCANA STUDIO PRE-ORDERS FOR NOVEMBER – GENE SIMMONS & LOS VALIANTS – LEATHER, FUR, & FEATHERS

Vancouver (November 6, 2017) – Arcana Studio welcomes you to a month filled with heroes – some covered in leather and vinyl, others by feathers and fur! Edgar Delgado returns to the world of his successful UltraDuck series with Los Valiants, while Gene Simmons is punching in with another installment of Dominatrix, as well as the first collected edition of Zipper vs Dominatrix: Hellbent in Heels AND the first Arcana edition of Zipper volume one. Let’s dig in to our November Diamond Previews Solicits, which will be released in January, 2018, shall we?


Regular collaborator, Humerto Ramos (Champions, Superior Spider-Man), says, “from the genius of Edgar Delgado, the UltraDuck universe grows bigger and better. It is the age of heroes, time to stand up for something, time to fight back and be VALIANT.” LOS VALIANTS Vol 0 (NOV171229) brings us back to the world of UltraDuck. This time around, we have a collection of seven short stories, all written by Edgar Delgado (UltraDuck, Superior Spider-Man, Darth Vader), and featuring UltraDuck and his fellow heroes from Canis Hill. They are Los Valiants! If you missed UltraDuck the first time around, this is a great jumping on point, and expect more from this great series. WRITER: Edgar Delgado
ARTISTS: Various
COVER ARTIST: Edgar Delgado
Let’s start our foray into the mind of Gene “The Demon” Simmons by checking out Dominatrix Issue 2! Of Dominatrix: Hellbent in Heels, people are definitely talking! “Dominatrix has sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll and everything you would expect in a Gene Simmons book! It is hotter than hell!” – Mike Deodato (Marvel’s Old Man Logan & Astonishing X-Men) World Comic Book Review says Dominatrix’s “characters crackle with personality, ranging from sassy to slightly creepy, and the dialogue is polished,” and, “it takes skill and courage to write a story about a dominatrix which is more than mere titillation for a male audience, and Mr Hendrix… demonstrates his trade craft… with skill and nuance.” ComicCrusaders.com says, “The talent of writer Erik Hendrix is evident. The story moves at a good, fast pace and never lost my interest… There has truly been some very good character development and quite a bit of time building the world we’re reading about.” In Dominatrix: Hellbent in Heels Issue 2, Dom is trapped on an island with the rich and powerful, each with their own reasons for buying illegal and “exotic” weapons. What can go wrong? Assassinations, narcissistic escorts, brawls, gunfights, and living weapons for starters! As trouble escalates, we learn the mysterious origin of some powerful new friends. But, can Dom save them before they hit the auction block and are unleashed on an unsuspecting world? Be prepared; you won’t see the end coming!
