Welcome to What To Look Forward To!

Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. The new year rolls along with new issues as well as a few new TPBs and HCs to check out. There’s a new segment at the bottom of the page, so without further ado let’s dive in…

New This Week:

Black History In Its Own Words OGN – A collection of quotes throughout black history, with illustrations by Ronald Wimberly. Among some of the people featured are Angela Davis, Dave Chappelle, Spike Lee, and many more. Just in time for Black History Month. If you are looking for more like this, I highly recommend March by Georgia Congressman John Lewis.

Justice League of America: Rebirth #1 – Batman has assembled a new team, including Black Canary, Vixen, The Atom, and Lobo! According to early solicits, this is already looking to be a cool book, with the second arc focusing on The main Man, so don’t miss out on it.

Steven Universe #1 – Steven is back in his new ongoing series, featuring all your favorite S.U. characters!

Kingpin #1 – Daredevil’s arch-nemesis and one of Marvel’s most ruthless villains gets his own ongoing series!

John Carter: The End #1 – It’s been a long time since anyone has seen John Carter and Dejah Thoris, but now they’re needed to help restore Mars. From Brian Wood, this is one that Carter fans won’t want to miss.
