Happy New Comics Wednesday! Here are the comics that I’m getting this week (what are you buying?), along with a smattering of other comics to consider, and some news.
- AQUAMAN ANNUAL #1
- AVENGERS #22
- GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #2
- INFINITY #5
- JSA: LIBERTY FILES: THE WHISTLING SKULL tpb: I really enjoyed the JSA: the Liberty Files tpb, so I had to get this one.
- NIGHTWING ANNUAL #1
- SAGA #15
- SANDMAN OVERTURE #1: Yes, I did buy two copies of this comic because of the cover artists involved, what of it?
- SUPER #2
- SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #20
- X-MEN: BATTLE OF ATOM #2: It’s over already?
Here’s a few more items out this week for you to consider:
- First up, there’s Archie Comics’ The Fox #1. I have a fondness for those Archie superhero characters (though, not enough to buy this).
- Is anyone picking up Damian, Son of Batman? After DC killed that lovely boy, I have no desire to help line their pockets with this.
- DC’s One Million event (something I all but totally missed out on) gets the omnibus treatment.
- I’m getting Powerpuff Girls #2 for my granddaughter.
- In case you missed the singles, you can read Image Comics’ Mara tpb (and I recommend that you do).
- Vertigo Resurrected is reprinting The Extremist: “The trailblazing Vertigo title, which stretched the limits of comics storytelling, is finally back in print!” (DC Comics website). This surprises me. I read it and it’s still in my collection, but I didn’t think it had enough of a following to get a spotlight like this on it.
Go here for a complete list of comics releasing this week.
- DC Comics to move its offices to Burbank?! WTF?!
- The Walking Dead gets a season 5 (psst–I haven’t watched it beyond season 1!).
- There’s a new trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past.
- I enjoyed the Justice League: War trailer more for some reason (despite Aquaman being snubbed).
- Finally, Mark Waid’s Daredevil is apparently ending with #36. ‘Tis a pity. I have loved every single issue of this comic for the last 2+ years, and I can’t say that about too many comics being published these days.
