The Rebirthey One
To be completely honest, I could have just selected 2 books this week and be over with the article. As always, though, it's a good exercise to go through the list and see what I forgot to pre-order. Also, when are DC comics stop being returnable? That might spice up the market a bit?
|Suicide Squad #1
We have talked enough about this lately but it seems like a certified hit. While it might seem like a terribly obvious choice, just check the prices on N52's Justice League #1, nothing earth-shattering, but doing good …
Supergirl, Lupacchino on art and a Hughes cover … Add to that a TV series that's going to explode this season with the switch to CW. And don't forget about Steve Orlando, who seems like he might be one of the next big writers.
|Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #1 Kamome Shirahama Variant
Batgirl (instead of Oracle), Black Canary and the Huntress should have an interesting dynamic. And yes, this is the Nth Shirahama cover I feature here, love the art …
|Backstagers #1 Guillory 1:25 Virgin Variant
Boom doing what they do best with their indie but nice style, Tynion IV on writing duty and a ratio Guillory variant should make this an interesting buy.
This concept was originally created for Top Cow's Pilot Season. While it didn't set the world on fire back in 2010 (and it was created by Kirkman and Silvestri and had Joe Benitez on art), it's probably the kind of book that will benefit from having a fresh approach by less known creators.
|The Fallen #1 Yu 1:50 Variant
Pretty cool Yu cover, might heat up this week and then who knows? People who like skeletons (and we are legion) might always be on the lookout, I guess.
If Pearson is doing the art, I will probably mention it. This is the last issue he will be doing the art for, but just because he's back on Body Bags and that's really amazing news.
|Is This Tomorrow?
Always keep meaning to check these Canton Street facsimile editions as they are publishing some crazy good-looking comics at prices that will allow you to be able to buy food and other non-comic stuff. Has anyone checked them out?
That's it for this week. What would you buy? There can be only one!
