DCU: Brave New World #1 – When DC first kicked off Infinite Crisis, they released an 80-page book for $1.00 to set the stage for the event. This time around, they’re letting you catch a peek at six new titles starting up in the next couple of months, again in an 80-page book for $1.00. Can’t beat that! The titles previewed in Brave New World are:
Martian Manhunter - by AJ Lieberman & Al Barrionuevo
OMAC - by Bruce Jones & Renato Guedes
Uncle Sam & the Freedom Fighters - by Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, & Daniel
The Creeper – by Steve Niles, Justiniano, & Walden Wong
The All-New Atom – by Gail Simone, John Byrne, & Trevor Scott
The Trials of SHAZAM – by Judd Winick & Howard Porter
Plus, this book features the return of a character we all thought we’d never see again – they’re not saying who it is, but they’re promising it’s someone good. Definitely check this book out – it’s only a buck! What have you got to lose?!
Moon Knight #3 – These issues read really fast, but they leave you wanting more too! Charlie Huston is really shining a light on the troubled past of Moon Knight’s character before bringing him back into action, and the result is an awesome book. It doesn’t hurt that David Finch’s artwork is absolutely gorgeous! If you’re not reading this book already, it’s not too late to start! This is one of the best new titles on the market.
New Avengers #21 – That’s right, #20 just shipped last week, but the Civil War is finally breaking into the New Avengers book, and you know it’s going to tear the book apart when the two men who founded this Avengers team are on different sides of this issue and, now, the law. In this issue, the team is fractured, possibly beyond healing, and Captain America is on the run with a handful of other superheroes who also defy the registration act. Expect tons of intense action in this book; New Avengers is the crux point of the whole Civil War, and it’s all building up to a huge conflict.
Sidekick #1 – Paul Jenkins, one of the best writers in the business, is trying out some new territory: comedy. This new book from Dark Horse is about superhero sidekicks and how, as often as not, they do all the work and get none of the credit. It’s also about how they use their status and fame to score dates with hot chicks. Yeah, it’s that kind of funny. Give it a whirl and enjoy a good laugh!
Solo #11 – I haven’t cared for most of DC’s Solo books, where one creator tells a story and is responsible for the writing and the art. This time around, it’s different. This time around its Sergio Aragones, creator of the hilarious Groo the Wanderer! The hyper-busy backgrounds are enough to warrant their own comic when Sergio Aragones is involved! Definitely check this book out!
Wolverine #43 – Wolverine is hot on the trail of Nitro, the villain who kicked off the whole Civil War when he used his power to blow up a huge chunk of a small town, including an elementary school full of kids. For some reason, the government seems more focused on making sure Speedball, the only survivor of the New Warriors team who tracked Nitro and his other super villain friends down, takes the fall for the whole thing. Wolverine is out to make sure the devil gets his due – if you think Nitro isn’t going to pay, you don’t know Wolverine very well!
See you at Haven!
