Happy new comic books day, Ninja Nation. From Detective Comics #2 to new Skullkickers, here is what we couldn’t wait to get our little lethal hands on today.
Detective Comics #2
From DC Comics and Tony S. Daniel, Batman sets his sights on the Gotham Ripper, who in turn has his sights on Batman. Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne explores a budding romance with television journalist Charlotte Rivers, who’s visiting Gotham City to cover the gruesome slayings – while also trying to uncover Bruce’s own mystery. But time is running out as both Commissioner Gordon and Batman work to uncover the true identity of this new serial killer.
X-Men: Schism #5
From Marvel Comics, the future of mutantkind begins this October in X-Men: Schism #5! Superstar artist Adam Kubert joins Marvel Architect Jason Aaron for this explosive finale that will change everything you know about the X-Men.
From Image Comicsand Jim Zub, “FIVE FUNERALS AND A BUCKET OF BLOOD,” Part Five of Five. Problem with solicitations, right? You have to make people believe in the book, your dependability and tap into their excitement for comics in 50 words or less. It’s tough, especially when so much gets hyped to a ludicrous “Nothing will ever be the same” level, leaving them nowhere else to go… Or you could give the no frills hype like the Walking Dead does below.
From Image Comics and Scott Snyder, “IT’S A JUNGLE OUT THERE.” Things heat up as our cannibalistic salesman meets the kids and invites them over for dinner.
From Marvel Comics, BARON ZEMO RETURNS?! In the midst of their greatest escape in history, will the return of Captain America’s best fiend push the Thunderbolts to making a Devil’s pact with a certain Red Menace? Find out, as the series’ stoic sentries Jeff Parker and Kev Walker bring you FAIL SAFE!
From Image Comics and John Layman, “BASEBALL, HOT DOGS AND APPLE PIE,” Part One.
Mike Applebee’s good day, Tony Chu’s first day and John Colby’s last day. An issue of beginning and endings, as we head into the fifth story arc of the multi-Eisner award nominated series about cops, crooks, cooks, cannibals, clairvoyants and… meter maids?
