The Zebra Batman vs Chainsaw Batman One
Before we get into it remember that the Art Challenge auctions finish tonight (so bid bid bid) and that we have a great contest going on that also ends tonight. I won’t be talking about the wrestling books because I don’t have a lot of faith in them, so sorry about that! Kinda nice week, but I am so excited about one book in particular that it might be clouding my judgment …
Some awesome covers
|Clone Conspiracy #2 by Gabriele Dell’Otto||Powerman & Iron Fist #10 Eric Canete 1:25 Variant|
|New Super-Man #5 Bernard Chang Variant||Batgirl & The Birds of Prey #4 by Kamome Shirahama|
Blink and you’ll miss them
It seems Marvel got permission to reprint the Shang Chi stories featuring Fu Manchu, but they are going to publish all the Shang-Chi omnibii in a few months and then they’re gone forever (unless they arrange another print with the owners of Fu Manchu, which they probably will … I mean you don’t see kids wearing Fu Manchu t-shirts lately, do you?). These will probably heat up for a while. And the Deadly Hands book has a Dell’Otto cover!
Book I’m looking forward to the most
There’s no other way to put it … I’m a Giffen fanboy! Even though some of his latest work leaves me a bit cold, when he’s on anything he does is a guaranteed good read. He’s responsible for some of my favorite runs ever (Justice League or the “5 years later” Legion of Super-Heroes to name a couple), so I will always check anything with his name on it.
This TPB collects the Sugar & Spike stories from the Legends of Tomorrow anthology. I never touched that book and hoped it would get collected and fortunately that’s finally coming out today. What it’s about? Sugar and Spike reinvented as “private investigators who specialize in cleaning up embarrassing problems for the DCU’s greatest heroes” and that sounds like classic Giffen to me. Just a look at the cover should tell you if this is up your alley. They had me with Zebra Batman!
That’s it for this week. What would you buy? There can be only one!
