What a new comic books day! We’ve got Batman #1, Wonder Woman #1, Super Girl #1, Green Lantern Corps #1, Ghostbusters #1 and more! Here is what we couldn’t wait to get our little ninja hands on today (honorable mention by the way to this week’s Avengers and Thunderbolts as well)!
From DC Comics, Be here for the start of a new era for The Dark Knight from writer Scott Snyder (AMERICAN VAMPIRE, BATMAN GATES OF GOTHAM) and artist Greg Capullo (Spawn)! A series of brutal killings hints at an ancient conspiracy, and Batman learns that Gotham City is deadlier than he knew.
Wonder Woman #1
From DC Comics and Brian Azzarello, here comes the relaunch of our favorite girl in short shorts…wait, what do mean the short shorts are gone?! Well anywhoo, from DC ‘The Gods walk among us. To them, our lives are playthings. Only one woman would dare to protect humanity from the wrath of such strange and powerful forces. But is she one of us – or one of them?”
Dark Horse Presents #4
The hallmark anthology continues with another spectacular 80-page issue! In this installment, stories by creators Howard Chaykin (“The Chronicles of Solomon Kane”), Carla Speed McNeil (“Finder”) and Sanford Greene continue. Joined by exciting new shorts from Sergio Aragones, Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse, and Filipe Melo, this issue is certain to have something for everyone! Plus, the first chapters of brand-new “Beasts of Burden” and “Criminal Macabre” stories! If that wasn’t enough, we’ve included another demented strip by Patrick Alexander and an exclusive interview with Geof Darrow! (Preview pages are taken from Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson’s “Beasts of Burden” story.)
The DC relaunch marches, from Michael Green and Mike Johnson, meet Supergirl. She’s got the unpredictable behavior of a teenager, the same powers as Superman – and none of his affection for the people of Earth. So don’t piss her off!
From Erik Burnham and IDW, are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night? Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic? Have you or any of your family ever seen a spook, specter or ghost? If the answer is yes, call the professionals! Psychokinetic energy is on the rise again, business is booming for the boys, and Ray is troubled by what could be a prophetic dream… Is this an ill omen of an upcoming apocalypse, or just a little indigestion? These questions and more are raised in the first issue of the all-new, ongoing Ghostbusters.
Green Lantern Corps #1
From Peter J. Tomasi, yet another DC relaunch coming out today but it is a #1 so… When deadly conflicts emerge across the universe, it’s up to Guy Gardner, John Stewart and an elite Green Lantern strike force to keep the peace – or else.
