It’s that time again when we look at the new, exciting, and upcoming releases in the world of comic books in our March 2021 Solicitations. Though these titles are listed in March they’ll come out in May.
Eve #1 – Boom! Studios
I like Boom! Studios. They always seem to take risks in the sort of books they publish. Faithless was one of those books that really pushed the envelope right there on the edge of the table.
So when I looked at the synopsis of Eve from Victor Lavalle and Jo Migyeong my mind almost had a heart attack. Seriously. What is this thing? I mean it’s different from Faithless yes, but for those that complain that comic books tend to go in the same direction then you haven’t checked this out. Here’s the said synopsis.
* When the ice caps melted, most of humanity was lost to the hidden disease that was released.
* Now, a mysterious girl named Eve has awoken in secret and must deal with a world that’s nothing like the virtual reality she was raised in.
* In order to save her real father, Eve must embark on a deadly quest across the country, but she has no idea of the threats that await her – or the price she will pay to restore life to a dying planet…
And the cover is a little girl riding a raft with her teddy bear. I’m in.
Wonder Girl #1
This isn’t a surprise to anyone. And not just because I think DC announced this a while back, even before they published their Future State books. But like I said at one point, I will buy anything that Joëlle Jones does. She’s absolutely fantastic and her on Wonder Girl seems like a serendipitous moment.
Also I’m hoping they put out some of the books that were on the backend of the stories from Future State. Arkham Knights was incredible.
Stargirl Spring Break Special
Okay I will admit it. I missed the whole Stargirl and JSA thing in the 2000’s. But damnit if that Stargirl series on HBOMax isn’t just so damn charming. I’m hooked. Hooked I tell you! Joey from House of M Comics, the prestigious comic book store here in Rotterdam, told me I needed to jump in on Geoff John’s first book, Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. So why not hit this one up in the meantime before I catch up on everything? The premise is quirky and it’s pretty much what hooked me on the show.
Invincible Red Sonja #1 – Dynamite
Mark Russell’s run came to an end and I was out of there. Until now. Let’s start at number one again and see what Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner can do. Also, who actually wants pirates AND mermaids AND princesses WITH political intrigue? Everyone, that’s who!
Oh Valiant, where art thou? As I count the days. Until I can finish The Visitor that has yet to be released. I think issue 6 is solicited for April but I can’t seem to find issue 5. This book just disappeared after COVID hit but I still really want to see how this Levitz banger ends. Come on! RELEASE IT!!!!!!
And that’s my March 2021 Solicitations! Curious on any of my other picks? Well shucks. Go ahead and head on over to my dedicated Solicitations page and bask in my in-depth knowledge and exceptional taste of everything related to comic books
