Sirens, Gypsy, Patience and lots more!
Detective Comics 850
The formation of the Gotham City Sirens was based on the fortune Catwoman stole from Hush. She did this with the Oracle’s help and dispersed the wealth to her friends. This group later became the Sirens which ran for 26 issues. Issue 1 of Sirens picks up pretty much right where this story left off.
Though Ayers is going to direct, nothing has been able to slow the explosion of sales for key books. As far as they go ( and possible first appearances ) this one is now an undervalued gem with no variant. Hit those bins collectors.
Justice League of America 233
First Cindy Reynolds/Gypsy
I know you all are own on TV spec but remember that all it really takes is the right appearance for a cheap book to make you a little cash. This pick is more for collectors but one never knows.
The Flash show is getting another female hero. This time it’s Cindy Reynolds who was first introduced in volume 1 of the JLA.
Note: She appears in the DC Sampler 2 which predates this book.
Batman: Secret Files and Origins
First appearance of Lego Batman
The Lego Batman movie looks great and I expect it to be a real treat for hardcore fans. Billy Dee Williams has been cast to voice the Tim Burton Two-Face that never was. With moves like that fans have to be excited. This 2006 comic from Lego appears to be the first comic appearance of Lego Batman.
Indie comic legend, Daniel Clowes has already has some of of his Eightball comic characters come to live action films. This one is a bit different. If you haven’t read this time traveling, sci-fi love story it’s worth hunting down. It was only released in HC format from Fantagraphics.
Credit to Eric Mendes from the G+ group for pointing out that a preview of Patience appeared in Vice Magazine Vol. 23 #1 the same month as the Patience HC was released. It has yet to be determined if the magazine was in fact released prior to the HC but it probably was.
Amazing Spider-Man 695
First X-23 in Amazing Spider-Man
If you are trying to put together a complete X-23 collection then you are gonna need this sneaky appearance. She appears via this incredible image of future events set to happen in the Marvel universe.
