In Stores This Week

Finally, this week sees the release of Magdalena #12, bringing to a close the present “One, True Cross” storyline. As usual, my partners-in-crime are Nelson Blake 2nd, Dave Marquez, Sal Regla, Dave McCaig and Troy Peteri. You can see a preview of the issue here:

Some advance reviews for the issue have already been released. Newsarama’s Best Shots scored it 8 out of 10, saying, “…it doesn’t let up on strong characters and the potential of what’s to come.” The full review is here:

Meanwhile, Geeks of Doom calls Magdalena herself “…a well written, driven character that shows purpose in her actions and is in it for the long haul.” The full review is here:

My Shelf Life column at CBR this week will be about the last dozen issues of Magdalena, and the ultimate fate of the book. Look for the column around 5 p.m. Eastern on Thursday.

Cheers,

In Stores This Week

It’s not new, per se, but it is a new edition. In stores this week is a new pritning of the previously sold-out First Born trade paperback, now branded as part of an Artifacts line of collected editions. The volume contains the First Born mini-series as well as the tie-in Witchblade issues, featuring art by Stjepan Sejic, as well as the incomparable Kevin Nowlan inking over Luke Ross, Stephen Sadowski, and Rick Leonardi, plus a gorgeous Magdalena short story by Ryan Sook.

The storyline is one of my favorites, both because of the gorgeous art, and because we were able to bring a permanent of status quo-altering change to Sara Pezzini’s life. Even if you’re not familiar with the Top Cow Universe or characters, everything you need to know is within the pages of First Born.

Cheers,

Ron
