Welcome to What To Look Forward To!
Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. Several number 1’s, returning favorites, plus a healthy stack of new TPBs and HCs, so without further ado let’s dive in…
New This Week:
Doctor Fate #18 – Final issue! This was one of the best series to come out of DC, post-Convergence, not to mention one of my favorites. Felt kind of like DC’s response to Ms. Marvel: young student takes up the mantle of a hero while being mentored by another, using their religion to guide their judgement. Personally, I liked Fate more. Hopefully he’ll be back, whether in his own series or making appearances in others.
The Comic Book History of Comics #1 – Get a thorough look into the history of some of comics greatest creators, including Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and so many more! For more history, check out She Changed Comics, in stores now!
Reborn #2 – The first issue was a huge success last month, and this issue looks to be the same! Millar and Capullo make a great team, and I’m excited to see how this story plays out.
Thanos #1 – The Mad Titan returns! Now he’s fighting battles on two fronts: his regular enemies as well as his own family.
Yakuza Demon Killers #1 – A museum heist goes south, and the thief finds themselves stuck between gangsters and demons!
Other issues to look forward to:
- Archie #14
- Hadrian’s Wall #3 – Murder mystery in space! What more could you want? I’d argue this is some of Kyle Higgins’ best writing so far.
- Justice League #9 – Bryan Hitch is doing great on this series, he’s really putting the team through the ringer. I hope he’ll be with the Justice League for awhile.
- Lady Killer 2 #3
- Moonshine #2 – Issue #1 was great, classic Azzarello/Risso kick off. I foresee lots of violence.
- Superman #11 – Damian, we talked about this when Teen Titans came out: that’s not how you make friends! I’m glad to see Tomasi & Gleason writing Batman and Robin again.
Collected Editions and OGNs:
Multiversity TPB – Grant Morrison’s DC Multiverse spanning event!
Flash by Francis Manapul & Brian Buccellato Omnibus HC – A great run for the fastest man alive!
Army of Darkness: Furious Road TPB
Supermen: The Coming of The Supermen HC
X-Men: Wolverine & Gambit TPB – Fan favorite creative team Jeph Loeb & Tim Sale tell a story of two of the greatest X-Men!
Alex + Ada: The Complete Collection HC – This sci-fi romance series explores the lines of love we understand and shows us relationships which may be near in our future, though many may be uncomfortable with it.
