So we have a big first issue this week and I wrote a bit about it and posted the preview here. I’m very, very excited about this book so go out and support it!
Two female superheroes - including a legacy of the other - what’s not to love?
And speaking of female superheroes from Marvel
Have you been enjoying this? Gah I love Noto’s art.
Remember how people were all excited for Mighty Avengers but then they put Greg Land on art and everyone who is not a fan of porn tracing was like “I’m out”?
I have most excellent news for you! Valerio Schiti who did the art of Immonen’s Journey into Mystery with Sif is now on the book and he is AMAZING. I can’t wait to read this book now! So go give it a try - where else are you going to get your fix of Monica Rambeau and Jessica Jones (neither of who are on this cover … just say’n - also don’t be afraid - again Land is only on covers now)
Loki, Loki, Loki. I know some people adore him. And now he has a comic all his own. I’m not in the “adore” category but I do have to give them props for a book where the main character whose sexuality will be fluid. And that makes two Al Ewing books on the list this week.
Awesome Jenny Frison cover.
Let’s jump over to Image because there’s a new issue of Lazarus out!
So, so good.
This is the final issue of Batman Black and White but given these are standalone stories - I’m going to pick it up. It’s got a story by Cliff Chiang and Becky Cloonan sowhatelsedoIneedtotellyou?
The Joker’s Daughter hasn’t really worked for me but this issue may turn me around.
Have you been reading Trillium? You really should.
The Movement gets a guest star this week - hope it helps the sales of this book.
I’ve been staying away from Earth 2 for a variety of reasons but this issue I’m gong to try based on this:
That’s three female characters on the cover including two women of color. I’m in - at least for this issue.
I am going to look for the Cat cover variant of X-Men because it is awesome.
So that’s it for me - If you can buy just one comic this week I’d say buy Ms. Marvel.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with buying online you can go to Comixology.com and purchase the digital copy.
Two sets of posters for The Dark Knight Rises have been released. The first is themed “Rise”:
The second is “The Legend Ends”

AT SDCC, both DC and Marvel signed up with Lego to license their line to Lego. And now here’s a peek at some of the first figures.
First up DC. We saw the Batman figure previewed at SDCC but that Joker is a new addition.
And here Marvel’s figures.
I think I can feel the money pouring out of my pocket …
We knew this was coming after promotional playing cards from SDCC showed the character, but we now have confirmation:

The Team is on the hunt for Red Tornado, determined to find out once and for all whether the robot was the mole – even if it means kidnapping new friend Zatanna and dragging her along on their quest!
