We're almost through the first half of Jodie Whitaker's first season as the Doctor. Not to spoil anything, but in my house, it's very enjoyable to see these new stories. As a comics fan, I'm left wondering where the comic books featuring the first female Doctor have been. On November 7, the first issue of the next series in the adventures of everyone's favorite Time Lord hits shops. Titan Comics has sent out preview pages and cover images in anticipation of the launch.
Marvel Comics has made real efforts to reflect the popularity of certain aspects of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it continues with Shuri, sister to the Black Panther. Hawkeye's costume adapted to reflect the character's appearance in the films. Jessica Jones' appearance began to resemble Kristen Ritter a little more. Thanos became more and more prominent in the comics. Now, Black Panther's little sister, a runaway favorite in the films, has gotten her own series by award-winning author Nnedi Okorafor. Check out the preview pages, because this looks like it just might be a fun ride.
DC Comics sent us a preview of Batman #9, and while it's since made the rounds everywhere, I thought we should still share it with you, because I have some serious love for Psycho Pirate as a villain. Maybe it was his appearance in the All-Star Squadron/Infinity, Inc. crossover that cinched it for me, but his role in Crisis On Infinite Earths certainly helped and his story in Grant Morrison's Animal Man run was some of what proved what could be done with a meta-type of story.
Midnighter And Apollo is one of those titles that fans of Steve Orlando's Mignighter series have been eagerly awaiting. Fans of the characters' story in the pages of the Authority have also been clamoring for them to be reunited after events unfolded in the New 52 that saw new versions of them meet and once again become a couple, only to split in Midnighter.
Kim & Kim is the latest series from Black Mask Studios that impresses us. The first issue stood out due to it's fun tone and a willingness to show the characters just being real. We'll definitely have a review of this issue later. For now, we hope you are satisfied with the preview pages Black Mask sent us. We are warning you, that the press release does have some profanity in it.
We simply haven't been giving enough previews here of comics, but with Troy Little's adaptation of Hunter Thompson's Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas in a new format, I had to share some of it with you before it passed us by completely. Troy Little does a great job of adapting one of the best known books and making it feel fresh. Check out the preview and then go find the entire series if you like it!
Until we get to read the issue later tonight, we wanted to share the preview Dark Horse sent us of Lady Killer 2 #1, once again by Joëlle Jones. The last day for your local comic shop to order it is July 11, so let them know that you want a copy. Can you tell we're excited? In the meantime, check out this preview from Dark Horse.

Invincible immediately grabbed readers' imaginations in no small part thanks to the artwork of co-creator Cory Walker. Over thirteen years of stories has seen the title character grow from a courageous teenager to a hero and a father. The most recent story line saw Mark begin his story over, but choose to go back to the life and the family he had in the present. Unfortunately, it never quite works out that simply.
Dark Horse has sent us some preview pages for The Shadow Glass #1, by an absolutely amazing artist, Aly Fell. Yeah, she's coming up in one of our Artist of the Week spotlights, but in the meantime, check out these preview pages of her series for Dark Horse, The Shadow Glass.
Titan Comics released a collection recently that may have slipped under your radar. Heralded in a recent press release as Heavy Metal meets Big Hero Six, it looks like a wonderfully fun little bit of science fiction goodness.
