All-New Wolverine, Bearded Punisher, Warren Ellis, The Dominion and Deathstroke!
All New Wolverine 1 ( Fried Pie Variant )
The hottest comic rumor concerning a film’s character change since Sebastian Stan taking over as Cap hit this week. It’s looking pretty good for X-23 and if she becomes Wolverine in the film then look out for the All New Wolverine books. I’m with the guy who brought up All New, All Different Marvel Point 1 ( variant, 2015 ) as her first appearance/first cover but I also kind of like this Fried Pie Variant that no one is really talking about.
The Punisher Volume 4 #18
Filming for Netflix’s Punisher series started up this past week and Frank Castle has a beard! Will he for the entire season? If you are a collector of bearded heroes then here’s Frank Castle’s first appearance with one. It’s also a final issue so the print run is probably smaller than any other issue from this series.
Fire From Heaven: Sword of Damocles
Warren Ellis is returning to Wildstorm which is returning to the DC universe. Ellis might be the only really good writer to have even done anything of importance at Wildstorm. His Stormwatch run is the only Stormwatch run worth reading. There are some other, far superior stories that Ellis worked on for Wildstorm but his first effort was in this prelude.
Shonen Jump September 1987
Takashi Miike is adapting Jojo's Bizarre Adventure into a live action film. Miike is one of the more over-the-top directors ever to work on movies and is perfectly suited to bring this wacked out comic to the big screen. I'm pretty sure this is the first appearance.
Adventure Comics 361
First appearance of the Dominion
The CW is planning a big crossover event which is going to adapt the invasion of Earth by the advanced, alien species the Dominion! Fans of comic crossover events might remember Invasion from the 80’s. It wasn’t the best crossover but DC the mini featured art from industry legend Todd McFarlane! Issue 1 is an impressive cover. This comic is worth a look if you can find a high grade newsstand version.
New Teen Titans 9
Second appearance of Deathstroke
I’m not sure why so many people thought issue 10 was his second but it’s clearly issue 9.
