Welcome to What To Look Forward To!
Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. I’ve also included a list of Trade Paperbacks and Hard Cover Editions if you’re looking for some extra stories. A few DC titles hit #51 this week, meaning “Rebirth” is just around the corner, plus a gaggle of new TPBs and HCs, so without further ado let’s dive in…
New This Week:
Batman #51 – Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s legendary run comes to an end. I’m amazed they were able to see it this far through, but I was shocked to learn they wouldn’t be doing the final issue. I’m still confused on that (it’s one more issue!) but they’ve had a good run. When it’s time to go, it’s time to go. Cheers, boys.
Saga #36 – Because it’s Saga. This is the final issue before another hiatus, where we’ll get to breathe again for a few months.
Over The Garden Wall #1 – Now an ongoing series! Only gaining more fans after airing on Cartoon Network, its original One-Shot comic and mini-series follow-up, writers Jim Campbell and Amalia Levari with artist Cara McGee return us to the Unknown!
Aliens: Defiance #1 – Brian Wood and Tristan Jones launch us back into the world of Alien!
X-Files #1 – Though there have been many X-Files comics before, this is the first to take place after the mini-series that aired earlier this year.
A few other issues to look forward to:
Micronauts #1, Batgirl #51, Black Canary #11, We Are Robin #11, Sex Criminals #15, Star Wars #18, Vikings #1, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #7.
Lady Mechanika Vol. 2 The Tablet of Destinies TPB
Cluster Vol. 1 TPB – I was surprised how much I enjoyed this series. Highly recommended for fans of sci-fi and jail-break stories.
The Fiction TPB
Black Magick Vol. 1 TPB – Another hit from Greg Rucka, joined by Nicola Scott. The at is especially interesting, and it blends well with the gothic-noir feel of the story.
