It’s the last pull before the anniversary of new 52 and can you believe a year has gone by? It’s almost as if DC has a gift for me this week - two new #1s both with female leads! Yay. But then this also the week that Wonder Woman becomes Superman’s sexy sidekick so you win some, you lose some.
First up another one shot from DC’s National Comics:
Looker used to be part of Batman’s Outsiders (which looks a lot like the new Justice League announced earlier this week. But now she’s just a supermodel turned vampire. I’m not familiar with the team on this who worked together on the Kane and Lynch comic last year, but I will give it a try. Update: Not buying it the artist is a homophobe. Sorry not putting money in his pocket.
I am, however, very familiar with the team on the next first issue and it is a good one — Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray with Cat Staggs on art.
That cover artists looks like she has some potential, too.
Also from DC Comics this week:
The New Deadwardians #6 - still loving this.
Superman Family #4 - Look a comic book with Lois Lane on the cover!
And now moving on to the world of Marvel it’s Captain Marvel #3 by Kelly Sue DeConnick.
I like that cover. If you perused any of the Women Read Comics in Public site there was a lot of Captain Marvel. I believe this book just might be a hit!
And now moving away from the big two, two books I can’t wait to read:
Teen Age Ninja Mutant Turtles #3
Why am I pick this up? Because it is written by Barbara Randall Kesel who was one of the best writers Barbara Gordon ever had. Besides I always liked April and I can just look at the cover and pretend its Babs! This looks like fun.
I don’t think I’ve written much about Locke and Key by Joe Hill, but I just love the series. This week there is a one-shot and I can’t wait to read it.
That’s it on my side. What’s on your list?
