The Ongoing New Comics Thread


#1686

I’m really pumped for Bendis’ Superman.


#1687

I wasn’t so much but his recent Marvel work has been some of his best and he laid out his plans in a Word Balloon interview that sold it very well. I’ll be trying out Man of Steel.


#1688

Someone just reminded me that there’s only 11-12 issues of Uber left in general.
That made this issue extra enticing. Gillen is gearing up for something big.


#1689

I didn’t get a chance to read everything I picked up last night but enjoyed the two I did read.

Superman #42 - I’m honestly not the biggest Bizzaro fan but this was pretty fun. I would have to go back and compare them side by side but I’m pretty sure the first part of the issue mirrors the Rebirth Superman #1 except as Bizarro. The big introduction with this issue is Boyzarro. I’m looking forward to the rest of this story.

X-Men Red #2 - The first issue of this book was likely my favorite read last month. This one didn’t let me down. It’s playing just the right notes between classic X-Men and something new and fresh. Even the cliffhanger feels like something classic and fresh at the same time.


#1690

I hope he meets up with Lobdell’s Bizarro. GOAT Bizarro. He needs a fam.


#1691

Oh, thanks. That means about 3 trades then - hope it makes it.


#1692

I think it will.
Avatar Press might be winding down still, but the new Crossed mini that comes out in 2 weeks means they’re still in it for a few more months.


#1693

Finished my pile for the week.

Captain America #699 - Another great Waid and Samnee issue. This storyline seems to have wrapped up a little quicker than I expected. Cap is still stuck in 2025 but the big bad just introduced in this issue is already defeated. I’m curious what issue #700 will handle now and if/how Cap will be sent back to the modern timeline. I’m also a bit sad realizing that Samnee will leave next issue and Waid a couple issues after that. This really could have been a long fulfilling run.

Wild Storm #12 - This really felt like another wink wink nudge nudge to the old days of Wildstorm issue. I have to admit that I really didn’t pick up on a lot of it especially whoever the guy in the cliffhanger reveal at the end of the issue was supposed to be. I really like a lot of this book but feel sometimes it leans a little heavy on the too cool for school nostalgia trip.


#1694

I don’t know, I think that part has been set up for several issues. I have no memory of his role in old Wildstorm books but (and look at the dedicated spoiler thread for more) he has been mentioned several times as a threat and it’s clear who he is because of the seal on the document.


#1695

Didn’t even seen the document. Will look back over it. Thanks, Gar.


#1696

it was when Jacqui King opens the folder called Thunderbook. I actually did not see any nostalgia except for the end. see my post in the Wildstorm thread if you are still confused.


#1697

Jacqui King thinks it’s a failed explosive but it’s actually trigger for him to know the file has been opened, which is why he is activated at the end.


#1698

He’s Midnighter right?
I know he is.


#1699

I was a bit confused by the ending of The Wild Storm #12 too, but it was quite late on Wednesday night that I read it and I missed some of these pointers. Sounds like I need to give it another look.


#1700

Tom, Tom, Tom. that joke failed in the Wildstorm thread yet you try it again here? shame on you


#1701

Hey, last time it was Voodoo.
And yet you say failed?


#1702

jokes fail when they are not funny.


#1703

I suspect the greater issue is Ellis’ usual style, really more than any current writer, of writing for the trade, this actually had a cliffhanger of sorts rather than ending in the middle of a scene.

I did binge 3 or 4 in a row before #12 so it may be clearer read that way.


#1704

I guess it will work well in trade as #12 will (presumably) be the end of the second collection, so a good place for a proper cliffhanger.


#1705

Pardon the phrasing, but a taste of Nicola Scott from Action #1000.
