Happy New Comic Books Day (and Cinco de Mayo) Ninja clan, rejoice! Man, some week’s we have only a couple comics to go over and other weeks, like this one, are just loaded. Here is what we couldn’t wait to get our little ninja hands on this week:
Arriving just in time for Cinco de Mayo with a cover variant in Spanish. During the 1950s, Hellboy caravans across Mexico with a trio of vampire-killing luchadores, finding the undead; evil turkeys; a terrible bat god; and a little too much tequila. Reuniting Mike Mignola and Richard Corben, the creative team behind the Eisner Award-winning miniseries Hellboy: The Crooked Man!
SPIDER-GIRL’S BACK – AND SHE’S BROUGHT THE PUNISHER WITH HER! As a gang war threatens to tear her world apart and her clone, the Venom-like hybrid April Parker adopts a deadly new identity, MayDay Parker’s share of the old Parker luck gets cranked up to eleven when Frank Castle comes out of retirement! Meanwhile the daughter of Captain America is back on the streets of the MC2 Universe – in a world racked with crime and despair, can even AMERICAN DREAM keep hope alive? Here’s your chance to get in on the ground floor and see why Spider-Girl has the most dedicated fans of all!
In this special issue, five writers get together to tell one fantastic tale. Join HOUSE OF MYSTERY regulars Matthew Sturges and Bill Willingham, former Vertigo editor Alisa Kwitney, newcomer Dave Justus, and industry legend Paul Levitz to find out what happens when a single story is passed from one creative mind to the next – each one trying to write the next into an impossible corner. It could be brilliant, it could be utter madness… but it will definitely be interesting!
