Are you a comic book fan? Looking for the next best thing to read? Comic guru Mike Zapcic offers his recommendations in comic book reading from this Wednesday’s new releases.
MONSTERS UNLEASHED #4
“Earth is the battlefield for giant monsters from outer space and our own homegrown Kaiju, with Marvel’s superheroes getting caught in the middle. Luckily, Earth has young inhuman Kei Kawade, a.k.a. Kid Kaiju, on our side, joined by Moon Girl and Elsa Bloodstone — but if they can’t pull off a miracle, our planet is done for!”
RIVERDALE #1 (ONE-SHOT)
“Following the tone of the new CW series of the same name, the Archie gang is given a 21st century makeover in this 48-page one-shot comic that serves as a primer of sorts to the new series: darker and more, well, sexy is the word that best fits. Readers tag along with Betty, Veronica, Jughead and Archie in four short stories that are much more adult than ‘America’s Typical Teenager’ is used to.”
“The ‘SUPERMAN: REBORN’ arc kicks off here! In the first DC Rebirth crossover of the Superman and Action Comics runs, Lois and Clark celebrate their anniversary, but someone — or something — has their sights set on erasing them from this plane of existence. The shocking truth behind Mr. Oz’s words from DC Universe: Rebirth #1 will be revealed.”
