A Comic Show – Secret Wars Stands On Guard!

Aaron Haaland of A Comic Shop writes,

Hey Fandom, I’m back with another week of New Comics Now! Brian K. Vaughn’s new Image #1 is here, and you need it, even if you hate Canada. We Stand On Guard is a double sized $2.99 book you won’t regret buying. Airboy #2 continued James Robinson’s creative renaissance. And The Autumnlands: Tooth and Claw volume one’s a $9.99 that’s Kurt Busiek’s best work yet.

Secret Wars #4 is perfection. While all the Battleworlds and Warzones tell their smaller localized stories, Hickman’s main book is super compressed, and moving at a fast clip. Sure it’ll probably end with Doom and Richards taking each other out, but I’m having a hell of a time getting there.

Over in the DC You, I’ve made Detective Comics mine! Omega Men and Midnighter are two new titles with their own fresh voice breaking out of the pack.

Also, don’t leave your comic shop until you get a free All New All Different Marvel Preview magazine of the books coming in October. It’s an exciting time for comics.

After Nearly 25 Years, Care Bear Comics Are Coming Back!

Some exciting news came out of the American Library Association’s Annual Conference earlier this week. Roar Comics and AG Properties debuted a new reading experience for children of the ‘80s (and their kids). An all new series of Care Bears comics! For the first time in nearly 25 years, the comics will continue, written by Georgia Ball (My Little Pony, Scooby Doo), with illustrations by Melanie Gillman (As the Crow Flies). The series will start out in a digital comics app with interactive educational content. A print trade paperback will follow in May of 2016.

Writer Georgia Ball shared her experience writing Care Bears and working on the project overall:

The best thing about writing Care Bears is that each of the core characters has a distinct personality and a role to play in stories that take them on exciting adventures to new places. I’ve worked with American Greetings on comic books before and loved every minute of it; I’m thrilled to be writing with them again on a property that was such a major part of my childhood. Melanie Gillman’s art is just terrific — cheery and bright, just like Care-A-Lot itself. Kids are going to love it.

Care Bears, which started as a line of greeting cards in 1981, quickly became a smash hit children’s entertainment franchise with a series of animated films and television and a blockbuster-selling toy line. The comics will launch ahead of the highly anticipated new animated series, Care Bears & Cousins, set to debut on Netflix in 2016. AG Properties and Roar Comics plan to reveal more artwork from the series and announce further licensed comic titles at a panel during SDCC, which will feature members of the original 1980s creative team.
