Happy New Comics Wednesday! Here are the comics that I’ll be getting from this week, and a new thing: the best comic I read recently.
New Comics this week (covers here)
- ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #14: The cover to this issue reminds of the John Byrne drawn cover to Superman (1987) #9.
- AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #3
- AQUAMAN #32
- BATMAN #32
- BATMAN ETERNAL #12
- JUSTICE LEAGUE #31: Yes, there’s a new Power Ring being introduced, but what I want to know is how that conversation between Lex Luthor and Bruce Wayne goes.
- LETTER 44 #7
- NEW 52 FUTURES END #8
- NEW AVENGERS #20
- NEW AVENGERS ANNUAL #1: I like this dark, though very simple, Dr. Strange cover.
- RACHEL RISING #26
- REVIVAL #21
- SAGA #20
- SECRET ORIGINS #3: That’s a nice Lee Bermejo cover.
- SERENITY: LEAVES ON THE WIND #6: Hmm, the end of the follow up to the film. Maybe I’m just getting jaded, but this story has so far been real ho-hum. I don’t know if it’s the story or the art or the combination (yes I do: it’s both).
- SINESTRO #3
- SUPERMAN #32: I’m sure that I’ve said this before, but I’m not a big fan of JRjr (and on that cover–Superman should not be drooling!), but I’m really curious what Geoff Johns will do to one of my favorite comic book characters.
Go here for a complete list of comics releasing this week.
Best Comic I Read Recently
Archer and Armstrong #21 by Fred Van Lente, Pere Perez, & David Baron
When Valiant relaunched a while back, I totally dismissed the effort. It was only through persistent positive reviews from a fellow comic book reader that I started picking up every Valiant book at that time. But my enthusiasm waned for every title except one. Archer and Armstrong is one of those consistently entertaining, good comic books. It never fails to at least bring a smile to my face, if not make me LOL with every issue. This issue was no different as Archer and Armstrong have to contend with dead celebrities out to kill them. If you haven’t given this book a chance, I highly recommend it.
Runner Up: Legends of the Dark Knight 100-Page Super Spectacular. Check out the not-so ending of “The Beautiful Ugly” (I also really liked the art), the gruesome Batman death scene in “Break the Mold”, and the odd final story, “The Echo of Pearls”–Jim Krueger took personification to a whole other level, and with Batman stories, that’s saying something.
