Go here for a complete list of comics releasing this week.
For Your Consideration
- CREATURE COMMANDOS TP (DC): Somehow I missed preordering this trade featuring classic horror movie monsters battling Nazis in WWII! How can you not like that premise?
- INJUSTICE YEAR TWO #1 (DC): I have no desire to read this, but apparently it’s very popular.
- TEN GRAND TP VOL 01 (Image): I jumped on this mostly for Ben Templesmith’s art, but then he left the book after a few issues. Still, an interesting premise.
- MIRACLEMAN #1 (Marvel): The reprints of one of the seminal deconstruction of superhero works from the 80s begins! I have the original issues from when they were published (except for the last two Gaiman issues), but I plan to get the hardcover omnibus when Marvel publishes that.
- THOR GOD OF THUNDER TP VOL 01 GOD BUTCHER (Marvel): Please, go buy this and read it. You won’t be sorry.
- LIL BATTLESTAR GALACTICA #1 (Dynamite): If you like those Art & Franco Lil’ Tiny whatevers, here’s a Battlestar Galactica version. I may pick this up off the comic book shop shelf.
- DC is really going out on a limb (or a tentacle) and will be publishing TWO! Aquaman books starting in April with the publication of Aquaman and the Others, written by Dan Jurgens, with art by Lan Medina and Ed Tadeo.
- The Ant-Man movie will get two of the comics’ Ant-Men in the form of Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. Yeah, I didn’t care either.
- More news about Gotham: apparently, the series will focus on James Gordan, but also track Bruce Wayne’s life from about age 12 through the series end when he puts on the cape. Also, big-name villains from Batman’s rogue’s gallery may appear as well.
- The new Flash creative team plan to bring back Wally West. So, Wally will be back, Stephanie Brown is coming back in Batman: Eternal, so can Cass Cain be far behind? (And will fans at conventions now curtail their demands that DC bring back [insert favorite character here]?)
- Vertigo plans a quarterly anthology series called Vertigo Quarterly: CMYK, and will feature a plethora of writers and artists.
- Finally, DC will be publishing a series, called Secret Origins, that focuses on the beginnings of the DCU heroes. I’ve only wanted this very thing since the New 52 launched. I will be buying this.
