Welcome to What To Look Forward To!
Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. Lots from DC and Marvel (so much for a quiet 5th week, huh?) plus a healthy stack of new TPBs and HCs, so without further ado let’s dive in…
New This Week:
Batman Annual #1 – By my recollection, it’s been awhile since DC published an annual like this, at least for Batman; themed for the season and featuring several contributing artists and writers. Batman takes on Gotham in winter with the help of Scott Snyder, Paul Dini, Neal Adams, Riley Rossmo, and many more! This is a must for any Bat-fan.
Inhumans vs. X-Men #0 – First we had AvX, now it’s IvX! Man, everyone wants to fight the X-Men, huh? Check out this prequel to Marvel’s next event before it begins next month!
Injustice Gods Among Us Year Five Annual #1 – The last issue left on…well not exactly a cliffhanger but definitely a sign where we’re heading in Ground Zero (out next month!) But before we get there, Brian Buccellato has three more ‘Year Five’ stories for us, in the form of a flashback as-per-usual for these annuals.
Star Wars Annual #2 – Leia’s got her work cut out for her as she tries to recruit into the rebellion a race of beings who just wants to stay out of the war!
New Talent Showcase #1 – Some of today’s newest and greatest writers and artists come together between two covers to bring us one-of-a-kind stories! A must-have for fans of collab’ books and one-and-done stories featuring your favorite DC characters.
Other issues to look forward to:
- Deadly Class #24
- Deadpool: Back In Black #4
- Ghost Rider #1 – Can Robbie Reyes retain control, or is uncle Eli behind the wheel?
- Jughead #11 – Jughead and Sabrina’s date continues. Nothing else could go wrong, yeah?
- Justice League of America #10
- Ms. Marvel #13 – Kamala is back in Jersey City, but are her friends still by her side?
- Saga #40
- Serenity: No Power In The ‘Verse #2 – RIP Ron Glass, no one can take the sky from you.
