It’s another big week!

Echolands – I’ve been a fan of JH Williams III’s art since the late 90s, and really enjoyed his run on Batwoman. I’m very much looking forward to this creator-owned series, which is going to be gorgeous.

I’m looking forward to new issues of Alien, Cable: Reloaded, Chu, Department of Truth, Die, Dune: House Atreides, Ninjak, Oblivion Song, Old Guard: Tales Through Time, Once and Future, Robin, Star Wars: Darth Vader, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, Superman: Son of Kal-El, That Texas Blood, Thor, United States of Captain America, Vampirella, and Wolverine.

Moon Knight – Jed McKay seems to be the new Marvel wünderkind, with a large number of titles across the line that I’ve never read. I’ve always had a fondness for Moon Knight, and while I feel like Jeff Lemire’s recent run said just about all there is to say about his mental health issues, I’m curious to see a new take. I’ve decided to give this book one arc and see how I feel about it.

Superman & The Authority – I don’t have the trust in Grant Morrison that I used to, but I definitely think it’s time that the Authority returns to comics, and I’m curious to see how he’s going to weave them into the latest version of the DC Universe. This looks like it could be good.

This week I’m looking forward to new issues of Alien, Ascender, Black Hammer Reborn, Chu, Deadly Class, Gamma Flight, Guardians of the Galaxy, Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem, Marauders, Miles Morales: Spider-Man, New Mutants, Star Wars: Darth Vader, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, and Undiscovered Country.

I’ve recently discovered that Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo’s Nightwing is very very good, and I’m adding it to my pullfile as of this week’s issue.

I’m not sure about Shazam. Generally, I find it hard to get into comics that feature him, but I’ve been liking the work that Tim Sheridan has been doing in Teen Titans Academy, and he’s also writing this book. Maybe I’ll give the first issue a shot.

John Babos

8 books this week.

  • Blue and Gold #1
  • Flash #772
  • Justice League #65
  • Nightwing #82
  • Radiant Black #6
  • Shazam #1

  • X-Men Legends #5

James Fulton

I just figured out this last week that I should have been reading Nightwing. What a great run!

John Babos

In Tom Taylor I trust. I’ll at least sample any project he’s working on. I concur about Nightwing; it’s well done on story and art. I’m also curious what he’ll do as writer on Superman: Son of Kal-El.

Anyhow, what did you gentle reader pick up last week?

Aliens Aftermath – The main Alien series has been pretty good, so I’m down to give this one-shot a try. It follows up on the Aliens movie, and I’m curious to see what they have to say about that.

The Lot – I’m not too familiar with Marguerite Bennett’s writing, but I like Renato Guedes’s art, and I’ve generally been really happy with the Bad Idea comics I’ve read so far. I’m not sure what this is about, but I’m game to check it out.

Ninjak – I’ve been disappointed with the recent comics being put out by Valiant, but Ninjak is one of their cooler characters, and this comic is being made by Jeff Parker and Javier Pulido, who could make anything interesting and gorgeous. This should be great.

I’m also looking forward to new issues of Die, Iron Man, Oblivion Song, Rorschach, The Silver Coin, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters, Thor, Way of X, and X-Corp.

X-Men #1 – I’m not sure that we need to relaunch X-Men yet again, but I like the idea of the flagship X-Title focusing on an X-Men team again, instead of being a random showcase for different characters at different times. Gerry Duggan is an inconsistent writer, but his recent Krakoa work has been pretty good, so I’m looking forward to this. I like the new lineup too, but I hope that it stays flexible, as there are too many other characters I’d like to see in this book.

This week I’m also looking forward to new issues of Beasts of Burden: Occupied Territories, Captain America, Fire Power, Hellfire, Hollow Heart, Immortal Hulk, Post Americana, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, Suicide Squad, and X-Force.

United States of Captain America – It’s weird that this book is coming out the week before the final issue of Ta-Nehisi Coates’s run. I’m curious to see all the Captain Americas together again, although my trust is Christopher Cantwell’s writing has been shaken by his Iron Man, which is less impressive than his Doctor Doom.

This week I’m looking forward to new issues of Beta Ray Bill, Cable, Crossover, Daredevil, Department of Truth, Dune: House Atreides, ENIAC, Eternals, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, That Texas Blood (so happy to see this back), Two Moons, Undone by Blood, Vampirella, We Only Find Them When They’re Dead, and X-Factor.

I’ve been enjoying Teen Titans, so depending on how many story pages it has (vs. Who’s Who type pages), I’m probably going to grab the Teen Titans Academy Yearbook (even if it’s too early in the run for a ‘yearbook’). Maybe midterm report cards…

Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem – Mark Millar brings these characters back, with Tommy Lee Edwards providing art. I’ve always liked the Jupiter’s books, and enjoyed the Netflix series this is sort of coinciding with.

Planet-Size X-Men – I’ve been enjoying the Hellfire Gala, and am curious to learn what Emma’s big announcement is all about. I assume that will be in this issue.

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow – I’ve been enjoying Tom King’s miniseries that focus on lower-tier DC characters. I have no idea who Supergirl is these days, but trust King to make her story interesting.

I’m also looking forward to new issues of Alien, Grendel: Devil’s Odyssey, Miles Morales: Spider-Man, New Mutants, Sacred Six, Silver Coin, Star Wars, Stillwater, and X-Corp.

Hank Howard, Pizza Detective in Caligula’s Safe
– This sounds dumb, but it’s $1, and drawn by David Lapham, so there’s a safe bet that I’ll get something out of it. This is another Bad Idea publicity stunt – apparently you can only buy this book on Wednesday, but that was part of my plan anyway.

X-Corp
– Back when Grant Morrison first introduced the idea of X-Corp in his run, I thought it was a good, if under-explored concept. I like that we’re finally getting a title that’s going to look at the business side of the mutant empire. I only hope that it’s not like every other story that’s ever featured Monet prominently, and it doesn’t become about her brother.

This week I’m looking forward to new issues of Grendel: Devil’s Odyssey, Guardians of the Galaxy, Resident Alien: Your Ride’s Here, Rorschach, The Silver Coin, Star Wars, and X-Factor.

Felix Thomas is the second to don the mask and cape of the legendary ALLEYCAT of Nebelung Bay City. But, is he ready for what he’ll learn once he comes face to face (to face to face) with the insidious CERBERUS?!

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha – If Marvel has taught me anything, it’s to be very nervous about events that need to begin with an ‘Alpha’ issue. The Star Wars line is in need of a shakeup, even though both the parent book and the Vader series are pretty great right now. There’s a lack of cohesion to them, so maybe an event will help. I just like that this means more Boba Fett.

Whalesville X Rocks and Minerals – I feel obligated to complain about how annoying Bad Idea is as a company, but a story by Matt Kindt with art by Adam Pollina? I’m going to buy it no matter what. Then they add a second story by Kindt and Tony Millionnaire, without raising the price? I’m in for this, even though I don’t know a whole lot about what it is.

This week I’m looking forward to new issues of Beasts of Burden, Dead Dog’s Bite, Die, ENIAC, Fear Case, Fire Power, Hellions, Hollow Heart, Immortal Hulk, Marauders, Suicide Squad, and Vampirella.

I’m on the fence about picking up the first issue of Robin. I usually love Damian, but don’t know that I entirely trust Joshua Williamson’s writing, and don’t know the artist. I’m going to give it a flip-through at the pick up window (store closures have such an impact on impulse shopping).

Old Guard: Tales Through Time – I like Greg Rucka’s take on Eternal Warriors, and am curious to see what different creators do when given any point in history to play with.

Way of X – Simon Spurrier is a unique writer (I think of him as the new Peter Milligan, with way fewer misses), and I’m glad he’s the one who gets to explore Nightcrawler’s new sense of Krakoan spirituality. I am enjoying stories where the new Mutant culture gets explored, and have missed seeing a lot of Kurt Wagner in comics. This should be good.

I’m also looking forward to new issues of Alien, Eternals, Orphan and the Five Beasts, Post Americana, Rain Like Hammers, Sacred Six, SWORD, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, and X-Force.

Beasts of Burden: Occupied Territory – I’m a big fan of Beasts of Burden, so I’m always happy to see a new miniseries. No Jill Thompson on this one, but Benjamin Dewey is always a good second choice.

Silver Coin – Michael Walsh is a terrific artist, and I think it’s cool that he’s got this new series, which pairs him with different writers. The first issue is by Chip Zdarsky, so it’s going to be good. I don’t know if this is an anthology or a larger story, but I’m all in.

Tankers – I’m checking out most of the new Bad Idea titles, and this one, about time travel and combat suits or something, looks good. I like Juan José Ryp’s art and Robert Venditti’s writing, so I’m in.

I’m also looking forward to new issues of Dead Dog’s Bite, ENIAC, Far Sector, Fear Case, Fire Power, Hollow Heart, Immortal Hulk, and Marauders.

I’m on the fence about the second issue of Suicide Squad. The first issue was interesting, but if the entire series is just a big setup for the Future State story we’ve already seen, I don’t know what the point is.

I’m also going to try to give the new Green Lantern a flip-through. I’d love to read a John Stewart book, but I’m not sure this is the one…

Beta Ray Bill – I’ve become a big fan of Daniel Warren Johnson, and have always liked Bill, so this purchase is a no-brainer. Johnson is so good at drawing unconventional characters, and his recent Wonder Woman series was very cool. This should be good.

Alien – While this property was at Dark Horse, the quality of the comics they put out was wildly inconsistent, but the best of them were really pretty good. There’s a lot of potential in the Alien universe, with its corporate greed and privatized armies, and I’m curious to see where Marvel might take things. I figure it’s worth getting the first arc at least, and then I’ll see how things go.

I’m also looking forward to new issues of Barbalien: Red Planet, Black Panther, Cable, Die! Die! Die!, Dune: House Atreides, Guardians of the Galaxy, Miles Morales: Spider-Man, Once & Future, Post Americana, Rain Like Hammers, Scumbag, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, and Year Zero.

I’m curious about Teen Titans Academy, and might give this first issue a shot. I liked the last iteration of the Teen Titans a lot, and am sad to see it ended so soon. Still, the idea of having the former New Teen Titans teaching the next generation has some potential to it.

Dead Dog’s Bite – Tyler Boss’s art on Five Kids Walk Into A Bank was incredible, and I’ve been looking forward to this new series he’s written and drawn since it was first solicited.

ENIAC – The new publisher Bad Idea is trying to do things very differently. They are self-distributing their books to a small number of stores, and are insisting on bucking most of the conventions of the comics market. I have no idea if it’s going to work or not, but their first series is by Matt Kindt and Dougie Braithwaite, so I think it’s worth checking out.

Undone By Blood or The Other Side of Eden – I loved the first Undone series, by Thompson, Nadler, and Kivelä. It was a mix of dime store Western and Stray Bullets, and it was great. I’m happy to see that the same creative team is getting together to tell another story, although I imagine it’s not connected to the first other than through the device of having a character read a Western throughout.

I’m also looking forward to new issues of Fear Case, Fire Power, and Hellions.

I’m on the fence about Infinite Frontier and the new Suicide Squad. I really feel distanced from DC these days, and wonder if IF will help me understand it, or just leave me lost. I love the Suicide Squad in theory, although I’ve not ever liked it since John Ostrander left; putting Peacemaker in charge has me interested, because I love his ridiculous helmet.

Two Moons #1 – A historical series set during the Civil War, written by John Arcudi? I didn’t need to know anything more about this to know I’d want to read it, so that’s all the information I have. I’m excited to see what it’s about.

Hollow Heart – Paul Allor and Paul Tucker impressed me with their series Tet, and Tucker has attended TCAF, so I figured I’d give this new Vault series a shot. I’m not going to lie, the ROM tribute cover caught my eye in Previews, or I might have missed this.

I’m also looking forward to new issues of Abbott: 1973, Barbalien: Red Planet, Cable, Captain America, Excellence, Family Tree, Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Man, Marauders, Miles Morales: Spider-Man, Once & Future, Sacred Six, Stillwater, and Thor.

I’m undecided on Black Hammer Visions – I know I’m going to get some issues of this series, but don’t know if I care about every issue…

Fear Case – I’m not sure what this is about, but both series that Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins have made together before this (Grass Kings and Black Badge) were great, so this goes on the pull file list automatically.

I’m also looking forward to new issues of Far Sector, Fire Power, Hellions, Immortal Hulk, Star Wars, Tartarus, and X-Factor.

I’ve been ignoring the King in Black event, but might get the KiB: Marauders one-off, since it’s written by the regular Marauders writer, and I enjoy that book.

Future State: Legion of Super-Heroes #1 – I usually hate these types of Elseworlds-y alternate looks at the future of characters, but I decided to go with the LSH one, since it is being written by regular series writer Brian Michael Bendis, and I like artist Riley Rossmo. I didn’t realize that this might be the end of Bendis’s run, and that it looks like he’s dealing with the Gold Lantern story here, so I’m glad I preordered it. At the same time, I’d be happier with the Legion book continuing, but DC seems determined to lose me as a customer these last couple of years.

I’m also looking forward to new issues of Colonel Weird: Cosmagog, Daredevil, Department of Truth, Dune: House Atreides, New Mutants, Post-Americana, Sacred Six, Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, Strange Adventures, We Only Find Them When They’re Dead, Wolverine, X-Men, and Year Zero.

Only 2 books this week.

  • Future State: Legion of Super-Heroes #1
  • Future State: Suicide Squad #1

Hopefully, next week I will have more titles from across a few companies.

Abbott ’73 – I recently read the trade to the first Abbott series, and I really liked it. Saladin Ahmed and Sami Kivela told a great story about a black journalist who got wrapped up in a supernatural story. I’m happy to see this title return, especially given how much both creators have grown over the last couple of years.

I Breathed A Body – Zac Thompson’s Lonely Receiver just ended, and it’s already time for another creepy foray into body horror. I’ll bite.

Rain Like Hammers – I’m excited to see a new Brandon Graham comic. His stuff is always wild – stuffed with sight gags and puns, while telling a story that could be linear, or could be free associating. Graham is always great, so I’m down for it.

I’m also looking forward to new issues of Barbalien: Red Planet, Cable, Legion of Super-Heroes, Once & Future, Rorschach, Scumbag, Seven to Eternity, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, Stillwater, and X-Force.
