DC COMICS

Far Sector 1 Superman 17

FAR SECTOR #1
Official Description: N.K. Jemisin, the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Broken Earth and Inheritance science fiction trilogies, makes her comic book debut with bestselling Naomi artist Jamal Campbell as they thrust you into a stunning sci-fi murder mystery on the other side of the universe! For the past six months, newly chosen Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein has been protecting the City Enduring, a massive metropolis of 20 billion people. The city has maintained peace for over 500 years by stripping its citizens of their ability to feel. As a result, violent crime is virtually unheard of, and murder is nonexistent. But that’s all about to change in this new maxiseries that gives a DC Young Animal spin to the legacy of the Green Lanterns!
Writer: N.K. Jemisin | Artist: Jamal Campbell

SUPERMAN #17
Official Description: Superman’s new Fortress of Solitude sits in the most remote corner of the Bermuda Triangle.

THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #50
Official Description: FINAL ISSUE! This is it! After 58 issues (comics numbering is, dare we say: nuts), an OGN and a whole bunch of both eating nuts AND kicking butts, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl reaches its 50th and final issue! When we say “The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl’s final issue” though, we mean the *comic book*, not the character. Doreen Green will be fine! She’s fine!…OR IS SHE? Because in our previous issue it really seemed like things WEREN’T fine and since it’s our last issue maybe we’re feeling that since anything COULD happen then anything SHOULD happen! There’s only one way to find out, and you’re looking at a solicit text for it! Friendship, explosions, and friendships forged during explosions: it all comes down to this!

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep Cover Issue One

I briefly mentioned this new series in the last Pit, BOOM! Studios has put together a very interesting 24 issue series adapting Philip K. Dick’s classic book, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, into a comic. The book of course inspired Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, but this is its first telling in comic form in my knowledge.  In fact, I don’t know any other comics that have adapted a book by combining panels and actual text. It is so faithful, that they are giving sole writing credit to Philip K. Dick. The issue hits stands tomorrow.

BOOM! Studios is becoming a comic publisher to look out for. They were completely off my radar until very recently, but between this series, new ongoing books for Pixar’s library of films (including  The Incredibles), and Mark Waid’s Irredeemable, about a Superman like hero who becomes the world’s most powerful villain, they putting out some new and very interesting comics.

What else is worth getting this week?

  • Marvel: X-Factor #46 – Siryn vs Monet. Madrox and Layla vs Sentinels in the future. ’nuff said.
  • DC: Blackest Night #1 – Another DC Comics crossover sucks me back in. Hey, I’m a sucker for heroes returning from the dead.
  • IDW: Doctor Who #1 – It is about time that the good Doctor got an ongoing series. In the first issue, he travels to Hollywood in the 1920s, where he befriends Charlie Chaplin and uncovers an alien plot. Aweome.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer 26 Oz is back!

The moment most Buffy fans have waited for since the middle of season 4 is here, Daniel “Oz” Osbourne is back! (as seen in the awesome cover on the left)  As I did with the television series, I have blocked myself away from spoilers and the only thing that I know is that the gang goes to Oz for help.  While I have enjoyed the Buffy comic series, it has been a little disjointed and hit or miss. The pacing and flow of the “season’s” story has been off.  With Buffy writer Jane Espenson penning the next few issues I have a lot of hope for this arc.  In fact, I’m keeping this preview short so I can run to the store right now to pick up the issue…

What else is worth your time?

  • Marvel: Cable #16 – Continuing directly from the “Messiah War” crossover with X-Force, Cable is in a bad place and might not be long for this world.
  • DC: Nothing is worth your time this week.
  • Image: Chew #2 – A twisted concept that is both engaging and… well, pretty twisted.
  • IDW: Angel #23 – This book still stinks, but maybe it will get a little better with the return of “After the Fall” writer Brian Lynch. I want to root for this book so badly, except every week that gets harder (and it is not worth the high $3.99 cover price!).
  • Boom! Studios: Irredeemable #4 – My comic book guy recommended this to me. Mark Waid at the top of his game? I’m in.
