New Comics Wednesday 4/9/14

Happy New Comics Wednesday! Here are the comics that I’ll be getting from this week, plus some news.

New Comics this week

  • ALL NEW X-MEN #25
  • ASTRO CITY #11: Also available this week is the Shining Stars tpb, featuring some issues of Astro City that I’ve never read, so I’m not quite sure how I missed preordering this trade. Also out is the first hard cover collection of the Vertigo run, Through Open Doors.
  • BATMAN ETERNAL #1: The first of the post-New 52 weeklies arrives!
  • COFFIN HILL #7: A stand-alone story with a creepy looking cover. Please give this series a shot if you haven’t already, or give it another. Just read it, ok?!
  • DAREDEVIL #1.50: Celebrating 50 years of ol’ Hornhead!
  • EAST OF WEST #11
  • IRON FIST: LIVING WEAPON #1: I’m really looking forward to reading this.
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000 #5: A good, only two more issues of this dreck.
  • ROYALS: MASTERS OF WAR #3: I’ve only read issue one so far, but I’m digging this so far.
  • SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #7: After last issue’s explosive (heh) finale, what will happen next?!

Go here for a complete list of comics releasing this week.


  • Oh, hey, I can read Inhuman #1 after all since I’ll be getting Amazing Spider-Man #1. How do you like that Marvel is giving you two comics in one to entice you to try something else? It hasn’t worked on me … yet.
  • In the next move in the DC NOW! initiative, er, I mean … umm, Teen Titans is relaunching this July with writer Will Pfeifer and artist Kenneth Rocafort, and featuring much of the same cast as before. What?
  • First, Afterlife with Archie is a hit, and now they’re killing the titular character off in a heroic way? What have I been missing all of these years in Riverdale?!
  • Finally, Jim Starlin’s Dreadstar may become a motion picture? I’d much rather watch that than the Guardians of the Galaxy (I’m going to end up eating those words, aren’t I?).

    Nothing for me this week except for late shipments: TMNT #32.

    Was tempted to reserve Batman Eternal #1 and especially All New X-Men #25. I read that Max Wittert’s “Jean & Scott” is in it. If I had cash, I would definitely buy that issue just for “Jean & Scott.”

    As to Teen Titans, I’m guessing this is how DC will handle relaunches of dead/cancelled titles? (Bring back Demon Knights!) I wonder how their trade numbering will work. It would be confusing with a simple thought about it but I’m pretty sure they’ve got if figured out (I damn hope they do).

      I second your call to bring back Demon Knights! That was one of my favorites from the New 52 launch. As far as the Teen Titans go, I am very skeptical about the new series. Thanks for the comments!
