BLACK PANTHER #1

Marvel | Teen | $4.99

Story: John Ridley | Art: Juann Cabal | Cover: Alex Ross

Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) will helm Marvel’s next Black Panther comic book series alongside Marvel’s Stormbreaker artist Juann Cabal (Guardians of the Galaxy).

In this new ongoing series, secrets from T’Challa’s past have come back to haunt him. Fresh from returning from his adventures in space, Black Panther receives an unexpected and urgent message from a Wakandan secret agent. T’Challa must race the clock not only to save his agent, but also to keep his true agenda under wraps. Because if the truth comes out, it could cost T’Challa everything …

“It’s a hybrid espionage-superhero thriller, but at its core, it’s a love story,” Ridley told The New York Times. “And I don’t mean just romantic love, although there’s some of that as well. It’s love between friends.

“We’re coming out of a summer where we saw Black people fighting for our rights, standing up, fighting in ways that we haven’t had to do in years,” Ridley added. “And it was really important to me after the year we had where we can have these conversations with Black people and we can use words like love and caring and hope and regret and all these really fundamental emotions that everybody has.”

 

CAPTAIN AMERICA/IRON MAN #1 (OF 5)

Marvel | Teen+ | $3.99

Story: Derek Landy | Art: Angel Unzueta | Cover: Alex Ross

Brought to you by acclaimed creative team, writer Derek Landy (FALCON & WINTER SOLDIER, THE BLACK ORDER) and artist Ángel Unzueta (IRON MAN, STAR WARS), CAPTAIN AMERICA/IRON MAN will be a first-of-its-kind series, taking two of Marvel’s A-listers on an epic adventure that will explore the pair’s fascinating dynamic and history as they go up against a mysterious new threat from Hydra!

A government agent turned Hydra provocateur stages a daring breakout on her way to prison, attracting the attention of both Iron Man and Captain America. When Steve and Tony realize they both have a connection to the slippery fugitive, they team up to track her down — only to discover she’s not the only player on the board with big plans and sinister motives …

“Ever since the pandemic hit, I've been making my way through the old Marvel omnibuses, reading all the stories from the '60s that I'd only heard about/absorbed through osmosis — with Steve Rogers and Tony Stark being uppermost on the reading pile. Little did I know that this was actually a prolonged bout of diligent and thorough research for which I should be roundly admired — nay lauded,” Landy said. “The opportunity to write these characters is as daunting as it is thrilling, but with Ángel Unzueta on art duties, I'm reassured that it'll at least LOOK gorgeous.”

“For me, it's a dream come true to draw Iron Man and Captain America. They are my two favorite characters in the Marvel Universe (in and out of costume),” Unzueta said. “Working with Derek has been a GREAT pleasure. He is always enthusiastic about the artwork and encourages me to make changes as I see fit so it is really easy to work with him. He is a great novelist and a really skilled horror film writer, but he’s also wanted to be a comic book writer since he was 12 years old and his love for the medium is shown on every page of the script. He gives the script a great cinematographic sense in every panel and the choreography pushes me to be clear, detailed and dynamic at the same time. There is a lot of things to say about the relationship of these two Marvel heroes and Derek shows in this miniseries his deep understanding of their dynamic and services it into a great and relevant story: An instant classic!"

Shades of Tales of Suspense! Don't we already have a Captain America/Iron Man book called Avengers?

GIANT-SIZE BLACK CAT: INFINITY SCORE #1

Marvel | Teen+ | $4.99

Story: Jed Mackay | Art: C.F. Villa |Cover: Pepe Larraz

This summer, fans discovered the whereabouts of Marvel Comics’ most legendary artifacts in INFINITE DESTINIES! Unfolding over a series of epic annuals, this unpredictable story saw heroes from all corners of the Marvel Universe on a chase to prevent the powerful Infinity Stones from falling into the wrong hands. Central to the action was Marvel’s iconic thief Black Cat who walked away as the new wielder of this great cosmic power. The events of this story spun out into INFINITY SCORE, the current arc in her hit ongoing series. Now, fans will witness the stunning conclusion to this grand saga in GIANT-SIZE BLACK CAT: INFINITY SCORE. Written by BLACK CAT writer Jed MacKay with art by C.F. Villa, this oversized special will be a character-redefining one-shot with huge repercussions for the future of the Marvel Universe …

Black Cat has brought half of the Infinity Stones together, collecting a level of power that hasn’t been seen in years! But to what end? This hasn’t taken her out of the crosshairs of Nick Fury OR Nighthawk, and with the Infinity Stones involved, can Thanos be far behind?!

Here’s what MacKay had to say about bringing his Black Cat saga to its finale:

“ ‘One last job.’

“It's a powerful phrase. Sometimes that's how crime stories start, and sometimes that's how they end. In this case, it's the latter. But never fear, we're sending Felicia and her crew off in style with GIANT-SIZE BLACK CAT #1, the 30-page finale to the INFINITY SCORE, where we see Felicia pull off the final hair-raising heist of her series, where the risks are high and the stakes are even higher. Juggling the job, the various cosmically powered misfits she's collected, the shady movers who are after the stones and their hosts for their own reasons, and her own personal problems, Felicia's putting it all on the line for the greatest payoff she can imagine. And when the smoke clears, will the Black Cat have landed on her feet, or will she land herself in jail — or a grave? Find out in GIANT-SIZE BLACK CAT #1 this November!

“BLACK CAT has been a gift. In the two-and-a-half years or so since we started this book, Felicia Hardy went from a character that I was passingly familiar with to my favorite, and in the course of that time I've been privileged enough to work with some of the best artists, colorists and letterers in the business. For a book we weren't sure was going to make it past #5, we'll have wrapped up 25 issues in total and have taken Felicia all across the Marvel Universe and back. It's a book I'm going to miss dearly, but we've shown the world that the Black Cat can hang with anyone and deserves her seat at the table!”

"I am so proud to call Dark Horse Comics home! From Dark Horse Presents all the way up to Black Hammer, Dark Horse has been at the forefront of the kind of creator-owned comics I personally adore and aspire to. This partnership has been brewing for a very long time,” says Brian Michael Bendis on bringing Jinxworld to Dark Horse. “Mike Richardson, Daniel Chabon, and everyone else at Dark Horse has welcomed us with open arms and it’s very exciting to start rolling out our brand-new epics like Joy Operations and reintroduce you to some of our classic Jinxworld titles like Powers, Torso and Jinx. Any of my friends will tell you I wished those books were published by Dark Horse back when we first made them. To the future!”

“Brian Bendis is one of the comic industry’s premier talents and we are so excited to welcome him here to Dark Horse,” Dark Horse Comics President and Founder, Mike Richardson said. “As Brian can confirm, I’ve been chasing him for a very long time. Not only will Brian be bringing new stories here for his many fans, but we will be re-releasing new editions of his existing work for a whole new generation of readers.”

MAFIOSA

Dark Horse | $19.99

Story: Sunshine Barbito | Art: Alessia Alfano, Debora Carita | Cover: Jenny Frison

The Roaring Twenties are back! With all the romanticism and brazen violence of mafia-dominated New York, Mafiosa sets the status quo ablaze — with style, class, and a smoking barrel.

Developed from an original story by Thomas Brooke of Portland’s Rainwerks Studio, creators Sunshine Barbito, Alessia Alfano, Débora Caritá, Ronda Pattison and Mariacristina Federica bring you into the life of Nicoletta. The youngest in a Sicilian-American family, Nicoletta has aspirations to join her brothers in the family business — an organized crime syndicate running the streets of Manhattan. But when Nicoletta confronts her father and announces her desire to join the family business a crisis ensues. Refusing to take no for an answer, Nicoletta takes it upon herself to prove she has what it takes, moving steadfastly into a world of brutality with her own ideas to capitalize on the cocaine drug trade.

What transpires is not just a tale of a woman’s rise within the Marchesi crime family but a genre-busting look at how the players in this mafia story are transformed when Nicoletta proves better at the deadly game than her male coworkers. New York has a new player in town, and they ain’t seen nothing yet!

"What draws me into the world of organized crime is the juxtaposition of tradition, loyalty, hyper-morality and what boils down to murderous greed. We wanted to take this familiar and popular storytelling genre; set in the Roaring Twenties, but show you this world from a different perspective in order to create a dialogue. For me, this story is about desire and how it affects people once it takes over completely." — Sunshine Barbito

“Mafiosa has one of the most intriguing premises for a crime comic I’ve read in years, and it’s executed (!) with style and guts … breathless and bloody and wonderful in a way few comics are. I can’t wait for more!” — Gail Simone

But good things never last — a few hours later, Goldie is dead, murdered by his side without a mark on her body. Who was she? And who wanted her dead?

“Frank Miller’s association with Dark Horse has flourished for over 30 years. The original publication of Sin City was a watershed moment for our company, and we are very pleased to celebrate its 30th Anniversary with a brand-new edition. Readers will find that Sin City is just at powerful today as it was the day it was first released, exactly what you would expect from one of comics’ master creators." — Mike Richardson

"Speak up, Liefeld fans. What's the attraction?"

I used to buy Liefeld comics just to make fun of how bad they were, but I'm getting too old for that now. Even Liefeld himself is over 50. (Doesn't that make you feel old?)

FRANK MILLER'S SIN CITY:

"Am I gonna have to buy this again?"

If you get Frank Miller's BIG DAMN Sin City you'll never need to a buy a "Sin City" again.
