New Comics Wednesday (1/15/20)

Happy New Comics Wednesday!

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

My comics

  • FREEDOM FIGHTERS #12
  • LEGION OF SUPER HEROES #3
  • OVER MY DEAD BODY GN – A new Jay Faerber comic book!
  • UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY #3
  • VALKYRIE JANE FOSTER #7
  • FIVE YEARS #7
  • SECOND COMING #6 – Pick of the week! – I’m very curious how this story will end. The premise sounded interesting to me from the get-go (superhero taking Jesus under his wing at God’s request), then it was cancelled at DC Comics, and later it launched at Ahoy. It’s a strange comic in many ways, but that’s one reason I like it.

Interesting that I have two limited series ending and two #3 and #7 issues. I’m not a maths guy, but I love symmetry in numbers (and, really, everything else).

Other comics

  • HELLBOY WINTER SPECIAL 2019 – A part of me still wishes I’d ordered this.
  • CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS GIANT #1 – If this giant has “new” Crisis content, I am VERY curious what it is. I might have to keep an eye out for it at my local Wal-Mart and inspect the comic for, umm, defects or something.
  • LAZARUS TP VOL 06 – You can never go wrong with a Lazarus collection.
  • JESSICA JONES BLIND SPOT #1 – I have a soft spot for Jessica (I’m waiting for the trade).
  • THOR #1 – Considering the great Jason Aaron-written run that just ended was, I’m curious how this will go.
  • COURTNEY CRUMRIN TP VOL 06 THE FINAL SPELL – I’ve only read the first volume (so far), but I quite enjoyed it to the point that I’m keeping an eye out for new content all these years later.

Best comic I read recently

BATMAN #85 by King, Janin, Petrus, Bellaire, Cowles, Daniel, Morey, Wielgosz, Meares, and Rich

Batman85

The end of the Tom King-written Batman run. I have loved this King run from day 1! Add artistic collaborators Janin and Mann (and others) and we got a delicious helping of Batman comics! It hasn’t been all fantastic — King sometimes overwrite and can be didactic, but he helped create a unique vision of the Batman that we haven’t seen before, at least not to this extent. I’m definitely looking forward to the Batman/Catwoman limited series from King and Mann.

What are you getting this week?
