Adam WarRock to release My New Warriors EP

Another unique appearance may be coming up.

Nerdcore rapper Adam WarRock looks to be planning to release a new EP, similar to last year’s The West Coast Avengers, which included a track about Darkhawk.

Comics writer/journalist Kevin Church posted his cover design for My New Warriors E.P. (left) to his Tumblr page.

The exact release date is not yet known, although it appears it was going to be this Monday at one point.

All of the covers used are from the first 18 issues of the original New Warriors series, specifically issues #1, 3, 4, 10, 11 and 18.

Rare New Warriors Sketch Cards

Cartoonist Fred Hembeck (Petey Parker, Marvel Age, Fred Hembeck Destroys the Marvel Universe) has created wonderful New Warriors sketch cards. These one-of-a-kind trading cards depict the original 6 New Warriors in their costumes from New Warriors #1. They’re available now on eBay until the auctions end on April 13, starting at $6.99 each, so get them while you can. Click the image to be taken to each character’s auction page.

Fred Hembeck wrote and drew the first chronological appearance of Speedball in Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #11 “With Babysitting Comes Great Responsibility!!”, one of his Petey stories of Peter Parker the future Spider-Man as a kid. He also wrote and drew Nova in a couple of issues of Marvel Age where Rich Rider explained his return and the name confusion with Frankie Raye. Nova by Hembeck also appeared in the Fantastic Four Roast.

J is for Justice

Artist/graphic designer Fabian Gonzalez has made a neat poster called ABC Superheroes. And our own Justice (aka Vance Astrovik) was used for the letter J, appearing alongside Superman, Batman, Wolverine and other iconic heroes.

Can you identify all of them?

If you’d like to add this unique appearance to your collection, you can buy different sized prints starting at $13.99, as well as hoodies, t-shirts and other goodies.
