Auteur #1AUTEUR #1
ONI PRESS
(W) Rick Spears (A/CA) James Callahan
$3.99

Fresh off the biggest bomb in Hollywood history, disgraced and desperate producer Nathan T. Rex enters a downward spiral of drugs and depravity in a quest to resurrect his career and save his soul. Over budget and behind schedule on the latest installment of the horror franchise, PRESIDENTS DAY, T. Rex is backed into a corner by bad publicity, a crap project, and a jerk studio exec, but finds salvation at a strip club by huffing glue, and a chance encounter with cable news. Welcome to the most deranged, notorious, and hilarious comic of 2014! We apologize in advance.

Man, Oni Press is just cranking out the goods these days! This is a crazy book, chock full of strange “Hollywood” action. It’s as if Ed Wood was merged with Hunter S. Thompson, and someone gave them a bag full of drugs and a blank check.

Rogue Trooper #1ROGUE TROOPER #1
IDW PUBLISHING
(W) Brian Ruckley (A) Alberto Ponticelli (CA) Glenn Fabry
$3.99

Nu-Earth, just another planet ravaged by a galaxy-wide war, its atmosphere poisoned by chemical weapons. Created to fight in such conditions were the G.I.s – genetically engineered infantrymen. But now only one remains, the man known as… Rogue Trooper. IDW is proud to re-introduce Rogue Trooper in this all-new series!

As they did with Judge Dredd, IDW has put together a great re-launch (for America) of the classic 2000AD character. All of the vibe of hte orignal stuff is still there, and it’s easy for anyone to jump in fresh.

Starlight #1STARLIGHT #1
IMAGE COMICS
(W) Mark Millar (A/CA) Goran Parlov

Forty years ago, Duke McQueen was the space hero who saved the universe. But then he came back home, got married, had kids and grew old. Now his children have left and his wife has passed away, leaving him alone with nothing except his memories… until a call comes from a distant world asking him back for his final and greatest adventure. This issue launches the much-anticipated Millarworld Universe. Get in on the start of something MASSIVE!

I’m usually 50/50 on Millar’s work these days, but I have to say that STARLIGHT was a lot better than I thought it would be. Being a huge Flash Gordon fan, I was not looking forward to Millar’s “version” of the character (I did not care for his take on Captain Marvel in SUPERIOR). That being said, I gave it a shot, thanks to Goran Parlov on the art, and I was not disappointed in the least.
