Kaguya-sama: Love is War author Aka Akasaka announced on Thursday that he intends to stop working as a manga author. This was later explained that he wants to focus solely on writing. He intends for Kaguya-sama: Love is War to be the last manga he was responsible for drawing. Lastly, Akasaka added that he still plans to draw as a relaxing hobby.

The author also noted that while the Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga recently ended, there is some foreshadowing for a future story. Akasaka confirmed that as an author, he is working to “make good” on that foreshadowing “in the best way possible.”

Akasaka is also known for writing for other manga such as Oshi no KoHe also previously drew the Sayonara Piano Sonata manga. Earlier this year, Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine held auditions for a new manga artist, with the opportunity to work with Akasaka on a new manga.

Aka Akasaka’s ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War ‘ Story: Cunning Warfare for Love

The Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga started in Shueisha’s Miracle Jump magazine in May 2015. However, it then moved to Young Jump in March 2016. The manga ended on October 26th, along with a 12-page booklet commemorating the series’ completion. Shueisha published the manga’s 27th compiled book volume on October 19th and will publish the 28th volume on December 19th. Currently, the anime is on its upcoming 4th season.

Kaguya-sama Author, Aka Akasaka

Currently, the manga and anime story for Kaguya-sama: Love is War is described as follows;

From a good family? Check! A good personality? Check! Shuchiin Academy is where all these elite students with bright futures flock to. As the two leaders of the student council, Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane have supposedly fallen in love… but after almost half a year nothing has happened? They both have too much pride and can’t be honest. Things have gotten troublesome, and they are now caught in a war of “How to get the other to confess their love first.” This is a whole new romantic comedy, following an outbreak of cunning warfare between two elite students in love.

Akasaka and Yokoyaru (Scum’s Wish) launched the Oshi no Ko manga in Young Jump in April 2020. Shueisha’s Manga Plus service began releasing the manga title in English. Currently, Yen Press licensed  Kaguya-sama and Oshi no Ko. The manga is also inspiring an upcoming Oshi no Ko anime series.

Currently, it is available to stream on Funimation and Crunchyroll. The Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga is available to read on Viz Media.

Geiger, a comic book series by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank, will officially be getting a TV series adaptation from Justin Simien alongside Paramount Entertainment. The adaptation is reportedly part of an overall deal between Simien and Paramount and will see Johns serving as an executive producer alongside Simien.

First published by Image Comics in April 2021, Geiger tells the story of Tariq Geiger, a family man struggling to survive in the radioactive wastelands of 2050, years after a nuclear war decimated the planet. The official comic description describes Geiger as “a man even the Nightcrawlers and Organ People fear,” giving the man a fearsome reputation as he battles all kinds of wasteland scavengers, but after Geiger fights the wrong set of violent outlaws, he’s forced to come head-to-head with the criminal empire they’re connected to.

‘Geiger’ TV Series: A Deal Between Paramount and Culture Machine

According to Deadline, the planned TV adaptation of Geiger will be created as part of a three-year overall deal between Paramount Pictures and Culture Machine, Justin Simien’s production company, which also reportedly includes Plan A from Steven J. Kung for Starz and Lionsgate. Culture Machine was also behind all four seasons of Netflix’s Dear White People, a 2017 comedy series based on Simien’s 2014 feature film of the same name, which starred Tyler James Williams (Detroit) and Tessa Thompson (Thor: Love and Thunder).

Geoff Johns, the comics’ writer, will be responsible for the Geiger  TV series plot, while also serving as showrunner and executive producer alongside illustrator Gary Frank, Simien, Kyle Laursen, and Jamie Iracleanos from Mad Ghost (Stargirl, Superman & Lois). Aside from the Geiger TV adaptation, Geoff Johns and Gary Frank have most recently collaborated on Junkyard Joe, a Geiger comic spinoff centered around a heroic robot soldier.

Details surrounding the TV adaptation of Geiger, including the series’ cast and projected release date, are not available at this time but will likely be released as the series continues production.

Marvel released a new trailer for its Deadly Neighborhood Spider-Man limited series. The new trailer, which coincides with the release of issue #1, features new music by issue writer Taboo. The five-issue run follows Peter Parker as he lands on the West Coast and into a waking nightmare.

What’s the Limited Series About?

The series, written by Black Eyed Peas member Taboo and B. Earl, features art from Juan Ferreyra. The limited series features a much darker take on Spider-Man. It all kicks off with Peter Parker making his way to sunny Los Angeles. However, L.A. is overrun with demons that want to prey on the wall crawler’s greatest fears. If that wasn’t enough, Parker’s own dark side is awakened by these demons. This sends him on a journey that ends with the emergence of the Deadly Neighborhood Spider-Man!

Deadly Neighborhood Trailer

To give fans a taste of what awaits within the pages of the Deadly Neighborhood Series, Marvel released an all-new trailer. The trailer features never-before-seen artwork of Spider-Man facing off against the series’ main villain, Demon bear. Plus, it features an all-new track from Grammy Award-winning artist Taboo called “Welcome to the Neighborhood.”

Speaking to Marvel, Taboo shared how this project was an absolute “Fanboy dream come true.” Not only does it bring Spider-Man to his city of Pasadena, but it lets Taboo live out a dream he never thought possible. While the story is a crazy roller coaster of a read, that is not all that fans can expect from Deadly Neighborhood Spider-Man. It also pays homage to the classic horror films of the 80s that Taboo and B. Earl love.

Meanwhile, B. Earl shared that it is not “everyday you get to live your 11-year-old dream and play with Marvel’s biggest toy in the toy box”. He enjoys the chance to get really “weird and wild” with Spider-Man. Taking the Marvel hero to places he has never been before.

The limited series, Deadly Neighborhood Spider-Man #1 is out now.

DC Comics is teasing an appearance of the Court of Owls in its upcoming Batman/Spawn crossover. A new trailer for the crossover, which hits shelves December 13, shows off glimpses of what awaits in the pages of the issue. It also flashes to the masks worn by the mysterious group of villains, hinting at their involvement.

Batman, Spawn, and the Court of Owls, Oh My!

Of course, plot details are being kept quiet for the crossover event. However, DC is giving fans just enough to get them excited. Per CBR, it is revealed that Spawn becomes a weapon for the Court of Owls. He is used in their plans to destroy Batman once and for all. Of course, this leads to one of the greatest crossovers in DC history.

An official synopsis for the issue reads: “Two dark heroes, cursed by tragedy, find their paths crossing again…but not by choice! What sinister foe is at work, pitting the Dark Knight against the Hellspawn? From the shadows of Gotham City to New York City, this epic event is the blockbuster you’ve been waiting almost two decades for!”

Tell Me More!

The issue is written by Todd McFarlane and features art from Greg Capullo. Speaking on the Spawn and Batman crossover, McFarlane shared his excitement at the prospect of putting these two characters together. Not only does he get to reunite with Capullo, but he gets to “play with one of the greatest comic characters ever.” Not to mention he gets to return to his own creation, Spawn. He hopes to accomplish two things with this book. The first is to create a story that is fun to read, both visually and story-wise. Second, he hopes this is a reason for people to continue to collect superhero comic books.

Meanwhile, Capullo shared in an interview a little more about the Court of Owls’ presence in the book. He shares that there is so much potential to use them, alongside Spawn and Batman, for an interesting story. After all, this is a group of villains who have been around longer than Batman. Plus, they have been working right under his nose.

Batman/Spawn is out on December 13.

Marvel is teasing its upcoming Captain America & The Winter Soldier Special #1 with a look at Black Widow’s Return. The special, expected next month, picks up in the aftermath of Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #5. Some preview panels reveal Natasha Romanova AKA Black Widow is back in the fray, alongside a made over Bucky Barnes.

Black Widow Returns Captain America

Why Does Black Widow Return?

The events of Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #5 saw the culmination of Steve Rogers digging into the Outer Circle. As part of that, the issue saw Bucky Barnes shoot Steve Rogers in order to murder one of the villains within the mysterious organization. Now, thanks to CBR, we see some of the aftermath to that in these preview panels. Specifically, Black Widow returns, hopefully, to help stop this organization and Bucky Barnes is sporting a whole new look.

In the preview showing off Black Widow’s return, the super spy is shown in her iconic black suit. She is in a room surrounded by a large screen showing several photographs and documents. It appears the sometimes-Avenger is trying to piece together the mystery of the Outer Circle.

What Do We Know About the Special?

A synopsis for the special doesn’t offer too much information on what we can expect. It simply states that “Power. Money. Machine. Love. Revolution. The 20th century progressed at a more rapid pace than any other in history but not without help from the shadows”. The issue comes from writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing, as well as Kev Walker. The issue explores the origins of this Outer Circle. Plus, the future status of the Winter Soldier AKA Bucky Barnes hangs in the air.

Speaking of the Winter Soldier, the issue also shows off a new look for Bucky Barnes. Carmen Carnero designed a brand new look for Steve Rogers’ partner. The look, complete with man-bun, was shown off at this year’s NYCC.

Meanwhile, this special leads into next year’s big Cold War event where Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers join forces to fight the Outer Circle.

James Tynion IV announces a new ongoing series with Image Comics, W0rldtr33, slated for release next year. The comic creator shared the news with his premium substack subscribers saying it is his “first ongoing” comic since 2021’s The Nice House on the Lake. While the comic is not expected until Spring 2023, readers can see the first chapter in next month’s Image! 30th Anniversary #8. 

James Tynion IV W0rldtr33

James Tynion IV’s W0rldtr33

Joining James Tynion IV for the series is artist Fernando Blanco, colorist Jordie Bellaire, and letterer Aditya Bidikar. In announcing the project, Tynion shared that he could not be more excited about both the project and the team. More so, he is excited about a character debuting within the series that he likens to “an iconic figure on the level of an Erica Slaughter or a Fictional Woman”. However, fans won’t meet this iconic character until closer to the series release.

He also teased an incredible lineup of cover artists ready and waiting to adorn the series in some fantastic art. Alongside the announcement, the creator shared some of the art readers will see in the upcoming Image! 30th Anniversary #8.

What Will The Comic Be About?

Per Bleedingcool, the synopsis for the series reveals it is set in 1999 and follows a group of friends; Gabriel, Amanda, Liam, Yoshi, and Darren. The group discovers something they call the “Undernet,” a secret architecture beneath the Internet. Together, they plotted and charted their exploration of the Undernet on a private message board called, you guessed it, W0rldtr33. However, they soon lose control of the Undernet, releasing unimaginable horrors.

If that isn’t enough for you, Tynion promises another announcement in the coming week. This time it will be for a project even crazier than W0rldtr33. It is something that has been in the works over the past year and that the writer has been dying to unveil to everyone. While he remains tight-lipped on what it could be, he does share that it is not a comic project, and it is a little outside of what you may expect from him. Sounds promising.

SEGA and the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter page has revealed that a two-part prequel comic will be released for Sonic Frontiers this upcoming Tuesday, October 18, 2022, written by Ian Flynn. The page account confirms that this prequel will go along with the Sonic Frontiers prologue animation that was announced by IGN back in June, though it is unknown if they will release at the same time.

Sonic Frontiers Two-Part Prequel Comic: What to Expect

The first part of the Sonic Frontiers prequel comic will be released on October 18, 2022, and SEGA and Sonic Team have confirmed via Twitter. The comic will be a digital comic released in parts, though it is unknown at this time when the second part will be released.

Ian Flynn, the official writer for the Sonic IDW comics and character writer for Sonic Frontiers, will be spearheading this comic as well, according to his most recent Tweet.

SEGA also confirmed that the upcoming Sonic Frontiers prologue animation will also be released soon, and it will be separate from this prologue. Because the trailer released by IGN First showcases Knuckles and this comic seems to focus on Sonic, Tails, and Amy, it is will likely the animation will be about Knuckles and have little to do with the plot of the comic. More details are expected in the near future.

Sonic Frontiers Prequel Logo

Since the game’s announcement, SEGA has released numerous promotional materials for Sonic Frontiers, such as a brand-new trailer showcasing the combat.

It was also announced that the game will be receiving free, Monster Hunter-themed DLC a week after release, which will include new skin and items.

Sonic Frontiers is less than a month away and will release for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Seris X|S, and Microsoft Windows on November 8, 2022. Players can pre-order the game now to receive special in-game rewards and power-ups.

Spider-Man villain, and ruthless killer, Kraven the Hunter has set his sights on Krakoa. X-Force #32, from Benjamin Percy and Robert Gill, sees the villain begin killing any and all mutants he finds. This continues the X-Force storyline of Kraven hunting down mutants after the events of Judgment Day.

Spider-Man Villain Kraven the Hunter

Why Would A Spider-Man Villain Hunt Down Mutants?

Per CBR, Kraven’s new mission stems from the events of Judgment Day. After the Progenitor came to life and forced all of Earth to justify their existence, Kraven became obsessed with proving himself worthy. The villain assumes that taking out the fiercest warriors on Earth will justify his existence in the eyes of the Progenitor.

At the beginning of his new mission, Kraven is accompanied by the head of Deadpool. However, he soon loses Wade Wilson somewhere on the island of Krakoa. Although, that is the least of his problems, as the mutant island soon takes notice of his presence.

Kraven on Krakoa

After landing on the island, the Spider-Man villain wastes little time acting out his mission. He immediately sets about destroying a ton of the mutant resurrection eggs that bring fallen mutants back to life. He does this while thinking how little their existence means when they can so easily come back to life. By taking the eggs away, Kraven believes he is making them “truly alive.”

After making a mess of the resurrection eggs, Kraven begins killing any mutant he comes across. This includes Maggott and Icarus. However, before killing Icarus, Kraven asks who the most dangerous mutant is on the island. Naturally, Icarus points him to the most dangerous mutant out there; Wolverine. From then on, Wolverine is the main target for the mutant-slaughtering Hunter.

To lure Wolverine out, Kraven decides to kidnap Beast and lure him to the Shadow Room. Meanwhile, the island and its inhabitants soon realize someone is there and sends Wolverine to investigate. The issue concludes with Wolverine entering the Shadow Room, which Kraven has turned into the Savage Lands. Kraven, the Spider-Man villain, emerges and challenges Wolverine!

X-Force #32 is out now.
