I don't really write blogs that often, but it's something I wanted to do for a while. The idea here is to recommend upcoming series, as well as current ones, that others might enjoy, its all about sharing right? besides, we all seem to complain about not finding anything new, but I say balderdash to all that. The things people do want are out there, we just need pointing in the right direction.
1. New Crusaders. Does anyone remember Hickman's Secret Warriors? When the young descendants of young heroes are recruited by Nick Fury? Okay, take that premise and make it less dark. The new crusaders are the teenage children of the mighty crusaders of red circle fame. Something happens to their parents and they are recruited by the Shield into becoming a team. This book is being written by Ian Flynn (current writer of sonic the hedgehog and mega man) with art by Ben Bates. It's an all ages title, now I know when you hear the term "all-ages" one would immediately think of sugary sweet books with no drama, but Ian Flynn understands that "all ages" means that books are fun for everybody, its a superhero book that isn't ashamed of it, it doesn't try to be dark or edgy. The book was originally supposed to be digital only, but they recently announced that there will be a print version. The digital version debuts on May 16. For more information, you can go here or the article from cbr here
2. The Hypernaturals. Are there any cosmic marvel fans in the house? What about LSH fans other than me? Okay, you are going to want to seriously check out the Hypernaturals, written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, or DnA from Boom Studios. Its about a team of superheroes in the future that protect humanity throughout space. Now there are no aliens in the book, the characters themselves are actually evolved humans from space colonies. Team members serve in tours, like being in the military. Issue #0 debuts on Free Comic Book day the series begins its regular run later this year. There are various artists on the book. Its got mystery, action, science-fiction, and come on people, it's a free issue. Check out this article here
3. Empowered. My final recommendation is Adam Warren's Sexy Superhero Comedy Empowered. It's about a young superheroine who tries to make it in the big leagues. She is often tied up and humiliated by villains and even her own teammates. Now at first, it looks like Warren has some vendetta against women, but I would argue that she comes off as an actual person, not some invincible superwoman. The only thing that's really holding her back is her insecurity. Literally. She keeps going because that's who she is, and that takes strength. Now Warren's art style, if you didn't already know, is sort of Manga-ish. I know that's a turn off for some people. Now there isn't just comedy, there is also a lot of drama, mystery, and romance, along with pirates, ninjas, and zombies. The first six volumes and the deluxe version are on amazon, and the seventh volume will be out this summer.
I hope that you take these books into consideration. I liked doing this blog, I'll have to do it again.
