Another big week for new comic books with the continued wave of Future State comics from DC Comics continues. While that has dominated the last few weeks there were two new Marvel series that start and a nice showing of independent books that round out the week.
I’m back! So the good news is that I’m covering this weeks new comic books, the bad news is that I still haven’t caught up with the ones from a few weeks back that I’m still working on so please be patient with me on that one.
Wonder Woman #759 DC Comics Writer Mariko Tamaki, Artist Mikel Janin, Colorist Jordie Bellaire, Letterer Pat Brosseau It’s pretty rare that I get an early copy of a comic to review but I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of Wonder Woman #759 with the new creative team of Tamaki and Janin and was excited to see what they would bring to the book because it’s sadly been staggering along from the Greg Rucka run in the beginning (IMHO).
Welcome back to our third week in a row that is a new current record for reviews. Just wanted to give a shout out to my local comic book store where I get my comics at Pulp Fiction Comics Long Beach is a great local shop and they do mail order also.
So two weeks in a row is a new record at this point. The holiday this week kind of threw off the schedule and a rough week at work delayed getting the reviews up on Friday but the good news with that is that I was able to get some of the backlog of comics in this weeks reviews so we are nearly caught up (well as nearly as I can get and still get some sleep and Diamond Comics still not getting all of the comics to the shop) So it was a light week for new comics but there are some recent ones that you might still want to check out.
Sorry its been so long in updating the website. The apocalypse will put a crimp in you’re life and then with Diamond comics shutting down everything went off the cliff from there.
Amethyst #1 DC/Wonder Comics Writer and Artist Amy Reeder, Letterer Gabriela Downie I was a big fan of the original Amethyst series back in the 1980’s and have been intrigued with her appearing in the Young Justice but there are so many characters in that comic it was hard for her to stand out.
Wonder Woman: Dead Earth #2 DC Black Label Writer and Artist Daniel Warren Johnson, Colorist Mike Spicer, Letterer Rus Wooton After a stunning first issue it was going to be hard for Johnson to top it and yet he does here but not in the usual way.
