Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, KING SPAWN, Aquaman & More: The GWW Draw List

Between King Spawn and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Last Ronin, there was no shortage of good comics. Here’s what the writers at GWW thought of this week’s big books:


King Spawn # 2
Picture comics

Written by: Sean Lewis
Art by: Javi Fernadez
COLORS BY: FCO PLASCENCIA
LETTERS FROM: ANDWORLD DESIGN

Sean Lewis and Javi Fernandez loudly set the tone for King Spawn in the opening issue of the series. Somehow they took things up a notch with King Spawn # 2.

Essentially picking up where King Spawn # 1 left off, readers uncovered this problem that is behind the last acts of violence in the world of Spawn. For those wondering if you’ll have a new friend or a familiar face in front of Spawn – I expected the latter – you get your answer on the first page. Nick brother… CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL NOTICE

Frontier n ° 1
Picture comics

Written by: Patrick Kindlon
Art by: Marco Ferrari
Letters from: Jim Campbell

Make sure what you are doing counts. If you ask me, that sums up the message I got while reading the first issue of FrontiersMan from Image Comics. We often get lost looking in the forest for trees and vice versa these days. But basically this argument is really the same thing and nothing at all. – B Ferg … CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL NOTICE

Aquaman: Becoming # 1
DC Comics

Written by: Brandon Thomas
Pencils by: Diego Olortegui
Inks by: Wade Von Grawbadger
Colors by: Adriano Lucas

Writer Brandon Thomas gave readers a glimpse into Jackson Hyde’s future in Aquaman: Future State. Thomas explored a future where Jackson Hyde was Aquaman and Arthur Curry and Mera’s daughter was Aquawoman. Wisely, Thomas avoids the tangled DC continuity Future state books. Instead, aquaman: to become provides a solid foundation and a reintroduction to the character of Aqualad. – Percy WaelchlCLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL NOTICE

BATMAN SECRET FILES: MIRACLE MOLLY # 1
DC Comics

Written by James Tynion IV
Drawing by: Dani
Color by: Tom Napolitano
Letters from: Lee Loughridge

Mary Kowalski was just your average robotics expert who ultimately decided to break out of mental prison to become the person she always wanted to be. We learn how Miracle Molly, leader and primary inventor of Unsanity, appeared in this issue. – Brian Villar … CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL NOTICE

TEMPORAL CRIMINAL MAJORIE FINNEGAN # 5
AWA / Upshot Studios

WRITTEN BY: GARTH ENNIS
ART BY: GORAN SUDZUKA
COLORS BY: MIROSLAV MRVA
LETTERS FROM: ROB STEEN

You know you’re generally in a certain weirdness when you read Garth Ennis. Of course, that can be said with most comics, but Ennis takes things to another level. Naturally, some of that was on display throughout the first four issues of Majorie Finnegan Temporal Criminal – which are now available in a Collected Edition. But my jaw still hadn’t dropped like Majorie Finnegan Temporal Criminal # 5. – Nick brother … CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL NOTICE

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin #4
IDW Publication

Written by: Tom Waltz, Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman
Art by: Kevin Eastman, Ben Bishop, Esau Escorza and Isaac Escorza

This is a must-read series for anyone who likes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the least – hence the absurd number of variant covers. Now four issues in the series, the reader had learned how nearly all of the turtles had met their demise. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin # 4 highlights the last turtle whose fate we had yet to learn, along with that of someone else close to Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, and Donatello.

Hopefully the finale lives up to what readers got in the first four issues of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin. – Nick brother

STAR WARS ADVENTURES: GHOSTS OF VADER CASTLE # 1
IDW Publication

Written by: Cavan Scott
Creation: Francesco Francavilla & Megan Levens
Colors by: Francesco Francavilla & Charlie Kirchoff
Letters from: Shawn Lee

When entering a Star Wars book, you can usually expect certain things. There will be space, ships and if you’re lucky even a sword fight or two. Despite their importance to the overall theme of the series, the spiritual and supernatural elements tend to be understated. However, IDW Publishing’s debut issue of Star Wars Adventures Vader’s Castle gives readers a glimpse into one of the most mysterious ways to use the Force. – B Ferg … CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL NOTICE

Once and future #20
Boom Studios

Written by: Kieron Gillen
Drawing by: Dan Mora
Colors by: Tamra Bonvillain
Letters from: Ed Dukeshire

Just when you think Oz and Future can’t get wilder, Kieron Gillen is outdoing himself once again. By introducing even more myths into an already crazy story, Gillen pushes Once and Future up to 11.

Not only does Once and Future # 20 book storytelling, but it also features great character work. Gillen’s writing on Gran has been one of my favorite parts of this story, since its inception. While I’ve always appreciated Gran’s harsh, stubborn ways, it was his moment of honesty and personal reflection in Once and Future # 20 that really stood out and uplifted his character.

As always, Once and Future remains a must-read story that never fails to deliver. – Joseph gilmore
