Happy New Comics Wednesday! Here are the comics that I’ll be getting from this week, plus it’s Batman Day!
New Comics this week (covers here)
- AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #4
- AQUAMAN #33
- ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #22
- BACK ISSUE #74 focuses on the Fantastic Four in the Bronze Age, an era of FF comics of which I am sorely ignorant.
- BATMAN #33: The grand finally to the Zero Year story. Interesting that the end of the of the New 52 Batman origin story ends on Batman Day.
- BATMAN AND ROBIN #33: I love the cover to this issue, which demonstrates Batman’s singular focus.
- BATMAN ETERNAL #16
- BUFFY TVS SEASON 10 #5: My last issue.
- DAREDEVIL #6
- LETTER 44 #8
- MIGHTY AVENGERS #12: More of the 1970s “Mighty Avengers”, featuring Luke Cage’s dad and the Blue Marvel. The first part of the story was so much fun, and I expect the same in this issue.
- NEW 52 FUTURES END #12
- REVIVAL #22: What a cool looking cover!
- SAGA #21
- SECRET ORIGINS #4
- SUPERMAN #33
- UNWRITTEN: APOCALYPSE #7
- VELVET #6: A new arc starts! That cover though, is not very indicative of the awesomeness inside every issue.
- WONDER WOMAN #33
Go here for a complete list of comics releasing this week.
DC Comics has declared today Batman Day to celebrate 75 years of the Dark Knight (mostly as a lead-in to Comic-Con, which is fine). Be sure to pick up your Batman mask and special edition of Detective Comics #27. For more information, go to www.Batman75.com.
comiXology is also helping to spread the love via its Batman 750 Sale. There are a ton of $.99 digital comics to buy. Today only, you can also get some essential Batman digital graphic “novels” for $2.99.
It will come as no surprise to anyone that I’ve always enjoyed reading Batman comics, but my first exposure to the character was probably from the Super Friends first, then repeats of the Batman television series. But it was some reprints that made me love the Batman, the Dark Knight Detective version. First was “The Joker’s Five Way Revenge” as printed in the Best of DC digest #2, and the Ra’s Al Ghul story nin Limited Collectors’ Edition C-51, both by Denny O’Neil and Neal Adams. With that talent, how could I not fall in love with Batman? What was the circumstance in which you discovered the greatness of the Dark Knight?
