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

New Comics this week

  • AQUAMAN #30
  • BTVS SEASON 10 #2
  • BUNKER #3
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #30: My final issue. What wasted potential.
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED #0: I wasn’t excited about this so much until I heard Jeff Lemire talking about it at ECCC 2014.
  • LAZARUS #8
  • LETTER 44 #6
  • ORIGINAL SIN #0: I wasn’t going to get this, but I heard an interview with Jason Aaron, and his enthusiasm was infectious.
  • SECRET ORIGINS #1: My pick of the week! I don’t care that I know these origins (in general)–I just love this format, and who knows? Mayne I’ll learn something interesting.
  • STAR TREK #32

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


Here are some new comics that I’ve preordered from this month’s Previews catalog.


  • New Avengers Annual #1: Interesting that Hickman isn’t writing this.
  • Thanos: the Infinity Revelation OGN HC: Two words x 3: Jim Starlin, Jim Starlin, JIM STARLIN!


  • Infinity Man and the Forever People: Fourth World goodness? A lot of people went ga-ga over DiDio and Giffen’s OMAC when the New 52 launched, but I haven’t read it yet (though I have the issues). More people think DiDio is the devil, so it all balances out, I guess? Regardless, I’m interested. (Truth time: when I first heard the title of this comic, I immediately thought of the Infinite Man from the Legion, and I thought that this would mash up the two franchises. Now I know better. Oh, well.)
  • Superman #32: Geoff Johns writing? Sign me up. John Romita Jr. on art? Ehh. I do have an issue with that preview cover image: Superman should never drool (or is it miscolored?). Regardless, I’m curious what this team will bring to the Man of Steel.
  • There’s another Legends of the Dark Knight Super Spectacular. ‘Nuff said.
  • Tiny Titans is back!!! It’s a mini-series, but still. I’m actually ordering two copies–one for me and one for my granddaughters to read.


  • The team behind Phonogram and the Young Avengers (Gillen and McKelvie) is working on The Wicked + the Divine. When this was announced at Image Expo, and I saw the preview images, I knew I would be buying this.
  • Speaking of Phonogram, I finally ordered the first trade.
  • I love it when I turn the pages of Previews and discover something of which I was totally ignorant, but knew instantly that I wanted to read it. In this case, Joshua Luna’s Whispers tpb is that thing.
  • I read the first volume of Peter Panzerfaust recently, so when I saw that I could order the second volume, it was a no-brainer.
