Angelic #1, Simon Spurrier & Caspar Wijngaard To be perfectly honest with you, I’ve never been one for monkeys. With the exception of orangutans, I’ve never seen the appeal (they have fangs and walk on their hands, so no thanks.) Needless to say, I was
Moonstruck #1, Grace Ellis & Shae Beagle Like most nerds, I love stories filled with monsters, mythological creatures, and a touch of romance. Luckily, Image Comic’s new ongoing series, Moonstruck combines all of the above (with the added bonus of Grace Ellis & Shae Beagle
Slam! Vol.1, Pamela Ribon & Veronica Fish If you’re anything like me then you binged the first season of Netflix’s GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) in a few days. And if you’re anything like me the wait for season two is slowly crushing your soul.

Goldie Vance Vol. 1, Hope Larson & Brittney Williams Move over Nancy Drew, there’s a new ace detective in town and her name is Goldie Vance. Fans of the titian-haired girl detective (as well as Harriet the Spy and Flavia de Luce) are bound to
Godshaper #1, Simon Spurrier & Jonas Goonface While the story takes place during 2017, Godshaper begins by explaining to readers that in 1958 the laws of physics went a bit screwy. Not only that, but time seems to have come to a standstill as well.
