New Comics Thread - 1st June


#1

Hello there, Wednesday, new comics. Here are some:







If you read those or any other new releases then this is the place to have a little natter about what you thought of them, good or bad. Don’t be all silly and spoil the stories for others though, hide any plot points using the spoiler feature:

To set spoiler text: use the tags around your text.
To read spoiler text, click on it and the blurred lines will become clear.
Don’t start a new paragraph between the tags or it doesn’t work.

Do I see a @carlos_pedro getting a credit on the front of Elephantmen?


#4

I read Batman Rebirth. Very prologue-y, but enjoyable. I’ve liked Janin’s art on Grayson; good to see him moving up to the big title.


#5

Just Providence for me this week (unless the new Cinema Purgatorio is out, in which case I’ll be getting that too).

I think we’re all so far overlooking the most important release of the week on Comixology though, don’t you agree @mattgarvey1981? :slight_smile:


#6

CHUNKS - Like Crack, it’s a little bit moreish?

Note: That’s a reference to a joke in the comic. I have never tried crack… Back me up here Matt.

So yeah, buy CHUNKS if you haven’t already done so. It’s funny as hell.


#7

You most certainly did. Millarworld creative section veterans get a priority place on the new comics thread.


#8

So, Calendar Man in Batman Rebirth… wtf?


#9

That’s slightly my concern. Rebirth was a very continuity heavy introduction, I liked it but large parts passed me by as I didn’t understand the relevance. The iFanboy reviewers commented that Superman died again but nobody made any comment, it was all about the Hydra thing with Cap.

I hope DC understand there’s a nice middle ground, you don’t have to junk all the continuity but if you wallow in it you get books full of exposition and/or confusion.


#10

Yes @SimonJones. I did that issue and the previous one.

Here’s a couple of pages from that one since it comes out today so you guys can have a quick taste of what is inside.





#11

Are you sure Empress #3 is out this week and not next, Gar?

I’m probably checking out Superman Rebirth #1.


#12

Marvel told me: Published: June 01, 2016

Curse them if they are lying to the fans!


#13

Never trust them. Always check Midtown. :wink:


#14

I’m not adding a 3rd or 4th source in a rather complicated game anyway. I’d rather let it be wrong than turn a thread into a full time fact checking job. :wink:

Image are always 100% correct, Mr Immonen’s exclusive contract is the problem I see.


#15

Just use Midtown for all of it. You can go to 1 site and even get images that are all the same size that way. :wink:


#16

Personally, I always check the Diamond confirmed list on Sunday/Monday to be sure what to expect each week :wink:

#17

Their images are tiny and I was picked up on them being wrong in my first 2 weeks of starting the thread so stopped.

It’s not something that is a major issue, in the last 2 years I’ve been picked up on a wrong release maybe 3 times, Mark can consider it an extra promo :smile:


#18

Can you not spoiler this stuff for those who prefer to go in knowing nothing please? It’s not even up on Comixology yet.


#19

What spoiler? He was mentioned in the solicitation as being in the issue?


#20

I don’t read the full solicitations for something I know I’m going to read
