Time for a quick look at a few issues that are coming out on #NewComicWednesday for November 13, 2019.

DC COMICS

Far Sector 1 Superman 17

FAR SECTOR #1
Official Description: N.K. Jemisin, the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Broken Earth and Inheritance science fiction trilogies, makes her comic book debut with bestselling Naomi artist Jamal Campbell as they thrust you into a stunning sci-fi murder mystery on the other side of the universe! For the past six months, newly chosen Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein has been protecting the City Enduring, a massive metropolis of 20 billion people. The city has maintained peace for over 500 years by stripping its citizens of their ability to feel. As a result, violent crime is virtually unheard of, and murder is nonexistent. But that’s all about to change in this new maxiseries that gives a DC Young Animal spin to the legacy of the Green Lanterns!
Writer: N.K. Jemisin | Artist: Jamal Campbell

SUPERMAN #17
Official Description: Superman’s new Fortress of Solitude sits in the most remote corner of the Bermuda Triangle. Constructed using Kryptonian technology far beyond anything our world knows, filled with intergalactic, pan-dimensional secrets from all over the Multiverse…how could it possibly be missing?
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis | Artist: Kevin Maguire

MARVEL COMICS

Morbius 1 Squirrel Girl 50

MORBIUS #1
Official Description: MORBIUS IS THE LIVING VAMPIRE…OR IS HE MORE? ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES! For years, Nobel Prize winning biologist Michael Morbius has been struggling to cure himself of his vampirism, and now, for the first time in years, one may be within reach! But the path to it is littered with dangers and worse!
Writer: Vita Ayala | Artist: Marcelo Ferreira

THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #50
Official Description: FINAL ISSUE! This is it! After 58 issues (comics numbering is, dare we say: nuts), an OGN and a whole bunch of both eating nuts AND kicking butts, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl reaches its 50th and final issue! When we say “The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl’s final issue” though, we mean the *comic book*, not the character. Doreen Green will be fine! She’s fine!…OR IS SHE? Because in our previous issue it really seemed like things WEREN’T fine and since it’s our last issue maybe we’re feeling that since anything COULD happen then anything SHOULD happen! There’s only one way to find out, and you’re looking at a solicit text for it! Friendship, explosions, and friendships forged during explosions: it all comes down to this!
Writer: Ryan North | Artist: Derek Charm

BOOM STUDIOS

It’s been over a hundred years since the Plague That Ate Greed wiped out half the population, and it’s the only world that b.b. has ever known. But when b.b. rebels against her overbearing father, she realizes that everything she believes in could be a lie. On the run from her own family, b.b. will learn the truth about the world she lives in, and about the power she never knew she had. Writer Gabby Rivera and debuting artist Royal Dunlap present an adventure for fans of Blackbird and ‘mysterious destiny’ heroic fiction like Naomi about finding your family when the whole world is against you.

Writer: Jordie Bellaire | Artist: David Lopez

Lots of good stuff is coming out on Wednesday. What are you picking up?


Buffy Season 10, Issue 4

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #4
Official Description: Getting help from Dracula seemed like a good idea, until he stole the Vampyr book—and Xander! Now Buffy, Spike, Dawn, Willow, and Giles must save Xander and retrieve the book before it’s too late. Dracula has already begun to study how the lack of magical rules can work in his favor… The team from Angel & Faith takes over Buffy! Executive produced by Joss Whedon! Nicholas Brendon (Xander) joins Season 10!

I love it when Buffy-verse cast members join the writing team for issues. Who better to get into Xander’s head then the actor that brought him to life for so many years. The team of Christos Gage and Rebekah Isaacs continue to impress. After a stellar “season” of Angel & Faith, it is great to see them steering the main ship. Was surprised to see the team reintroduce Dracula, but I’m intrigued by the direction they are taking with the “big bad” caliber villain who has never reached that status in either the Buffy TV series or comics. It would be great to see him as a real threat.

The issue will be published by Dark Horse Comics on June 18th, 2014 from writers Christos Gage & Nicholas Brendon, along with artist Rebekah Isaacs, and of course executive producer Joss Whedon.

Following Buffy the Vampire Season 10? Enjoying the reintroduction of the classic vampire?

Okay, I’ll be honest here, I usually skip comic anthologies. Random stand alone stories just don’t interest me as much as ongoing stories do. These are usually throw away stories that you can skip and not feel like you missed a beat... But Dark Horse Presents #25 has Buffy the Vampire Slayer on the cover and I’m a sucker for Buffy tie ins. This particular stand alone story spins right out of the newest issue of Buffy (#22) and deals with one of the slayer’s newest allies, Billy, as he returns home to fight off the growing Zompire population that is wrecking havoc. What the heck, I’ll give it a shot. What other stories does the anthology have?

Dark Horse Presents #25
Official Description: After training with Buffy, Billy the vampire slayer heads back to his hometown to deal with the zompire epidemic! Delve into a time-travel story from Eisner Award–winning writer Matt Fraction! Mike Richardson adapts Andrew Vachss’ vision of violence in the big city in Undergound! Read an installment of The Chapel Chronicles by fifteen-year-old Emma T Capps!  Plus, new installments of Trekker, Blackout, Nexus, Crime Does Not Pay, Brain Boy, King’s Road, and Bloodhound!

The issue comes out from Dark Horse Comics next Wednesday, June 19th, 2013, from more writers and artists than I can count.

Everything in the past 22 issues has been leading up to this. All of Angel’s planning and his journey with Faith is coming to a head. Did the spell work? Has Giles been resurrected? The issue’s description does not lead on, but thankfully for us, the issue came out last week. I’ve really enjoyed how this series has played out and I hope that it ends as well as it has been. Big props to writer Christos Gage and artist Rebekah Isaacs. I know were only on issue two of the last arc, but I hope that we have some resolution to the “season’s” journey.

Angel & Faith #22
Giles’s resurrection has been pushed to the back burner while Angel and Faith tackle Season 9’s Big Bads—Pearl, Nash, and Whistler—who threaten to release boundless magic over the planet. Only the strong will survive!

Why are you still here? Go find out if Giles is back!

How cool is it that for the past few months we have had weekly Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe comics? The Spike and Willow limited series’ have help to expand the scope of “Season 9” and its theme of a magic-less world without making the season drag on forever (my main criticism of “Season 8”).

Spike’s journey to “A Dark Place” has dealt with him getting over his feelings for Buffy and finding his inner “badass” again. The adventure has taken him from the dark side of the moon to the wreckage of Sunnydale and along the way he has knocked heads with Pearl and Nash,two of the “big bads” that Angel has been facing off with in Angel & Faith. Will the conclusion of Spike’s personal journey take him back to his former friend/foe/grand-sire?

Spike: A Dark Place #5
Official Description: Spike and his new demon companion are getting along really well… On Easter Island, the duo work to activate a remnant of magic to help get Nadia home. Spike has stars in his eyes, but the bugs are wary of Spike’s newest friend and their master’s overly relaxed attitude. Something seems off. He’s come out of his self-inflicted dark place a bit too swiftly… The conclusion! Coincides with events in Buffy Season 9.

The new issue hit stands this past Wednesday from Dark Horse Comics, writer Victor Gischler, artist Paul Lee, and executive producer Joss Whedon.

I can’t wait to see where we go from last issue’s cliffhanger ending (spoilers) that saw someone or something in Gile’s body claiming to know a lot about resurrection. Whether this twist is a good or bad thing for Angel’s quest to revive the former watcher is anyone’s guess. More to talk about after the description…

Angel and Faith #17
Official Description:
Longtime nemesis Ethan Rayne has set the final piece of Giles’s soul practically in Angel’s lap. To complicate things further, the loss of a Slayer has sent Nadira and her group into the fray with their sights set on Angel now more than ever! Coincides with events in Buffy Season 9.

The last time we saw Gile’s friend turned foe was in Dark Horse Comic’ s Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 where he helped Buffy and seemingly died in the process. Could the villain have found a way to save himself through Gile’s corpse? It should be interesting to see how this plays out and even more so how it connections to the current storyline that is running through Buffy (spoilers– where Angel’s former love is face to face with Illyria).

The issue went on sale last week from Dark Horse Comics, but I’m a little backed up due to the Holiday (who isn’t?). The issue is from Christos Gage and artist Rebekah Isaacs and “executive producer” Joss Whedon.
