We tried to find the exact date Batman 3 Jokers was announced, just to see how long it took DC to get this 3-issue mini-series out, but we couldn’t find it. It was AT LEAST 3 years ago…
--NEW BOOKS OF NOTE-- BATMAN THREE JOKERS #1 After years of anticipation starting in DC Universe: Rebirth #1, the epic miniseries you've been waiting for is here: find out why there are three Jokers, and what that means for the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime. It's a mystery unlike any Batman has ever faced! FANTASTIC FOUR ANTITHESIS #1 The first full-length Fantastic Four story ever illustrated by classic creator Neal Adams! An unstoppable meteor of unknown origin has just erupted from hyperspace--and unless the Fantastic Four can find a way to stop it from hitting Manhattan, millions will die! LOCKE & KEY IN PALE BATTALIONS GO #1 The impossible, reality-bending keys of Keyhouse have always been weapons of war. In the spring of 1915, Chamberlin Locke's oldest son, John, is desperate to be a part of the greatest war of all... and never mind that he's too young to enlist. He means to use the power of the keys to turn the tide, and will tell any lie, and try any manipulation, to have his way. Prepare to open a door onto one of the grimmest battlefields of the 20th century, whose darkness might even strike fear into an army of supernatural shadows. CANTO II HOLLOW MEN #1 Once, a little tin slave with a clock for a heart broke all the rules-he found love, he was given a name, and he escaped his masters to go on an epic journey to save his love's heart. He met strange allies and terrifying enemies and, ultimately, though his adventure didn't turn out as planned, he returned to his people and led them to freedom.
Luckily you only need to wait until Wednesday to read these great New Comics and Graphic Novels!
Hello! Here’s this week’s list of all the really great comic books and graphic novels that we’re lucky to be able to read. I say lucky because the world seems to be increasingly volatile both globally and locally, and now more than ever the future of some of these very comics are in doubt, so let’s revel in the fact that we have access to them now. Huzzah!
--NEW BOOKS OF NOTE-- MAESTRO #1 Almost 30 years after the landmark story Future Imperfect, legendary INCREDIBLE HULK scribe Peter David returns to the far-future version of the Hulk known as Maestro - the master of what remains of the world. How did the world fall and the Maestro rise? What happened to the world's heroes in between? And where is the Hulk we know and love? BERNIE WRIGHTSON'S FRANKENSTEIN HC Few works by comic book artists have earned the universal acclaim and reverence that Bernie Wrightson's illustrated version of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein was met with upon its original release in 1983. A generation later, this magnificent pairing of art and literature is still considered to be one of the greatest achievements made by any artist in the field. This book includes the complete text of the original groundbreaking novel, and approximately fifty original full-page illustrations by Bernie Wrightson.
Here’s to this week’s New Comics and to all the New Comics yet to come!!
We’ve been waiting for a creator-owned comic by Tom Taylor for a long time, and one is finally available next week in the form of SEVEN SECRETS! There’s also 4 more EMPYRE comics and the latest issue of DARK NIGHTS DEATH METAL with all its variant covers (on a related note, someone was just in looking for Death Metal #2, which they called “Scott Snyder’s Dark Metal,” and while we still have 3 different variant covers, the fact that we didn’t have the main cover was reason enough to make this gentleman say, as he was leaving, that this store is “bu!!$#!t”) and so many more new comics and graphic novels!
--NEW BOOKS OF NOTE-- SEVEN SECRETS #1 We're very excited for this book!! For centuries, the Order has trusted in Keepers and Holders to guard the Secrets in seven briefcases against all harm, but when their stronghold is attacked and the secrets put in peril, the entire Order must face their greatest fear-an enemy who knows too much and is willing to kill to get what he wants. Now, the Order's newest member, Caspar, must discover the truth of the Secrets before the enemy does, or risk losing everything. BIG GIRLS #1 When men become giant monsters hellbent on destroying the world, only girls can stop them-BIG GIRLS. Meet Ember-she writes poetry, loves to read, and she's a 300-foot-tall full-time monster killer! She and the other big girls are all that stand in the way of our world's complete annihilation! LOIS LANE AND THE FRIENDSHIP CHALLENGE From New York Times bestselling author Grace Ellis (Lumberjanes) and artist Brittney Williams (Goldie Vance) comes a new graphic novel about 13-year-old Lois Lane as she navigates the confusing worlds of social media and friendship. This book looks adorable!
Challengers! Come for the comics; leave abruptly because of the “bu!!$#!t”!
