Grant Morrison “killed” the original Batman, Bruce Wayne, and now he is bringing him back in “The Return of Bruce Wayne”.  The first issue of the six-part series hits stores next Wednesday, May 12th. Since the events of “Final Crisis”, Bruce Wayne has been displaced through time. This is his journey. Each issue features the cape crusader in a different era of time with a different artist giving each issue a distinct style. Issue #1 features art by Chris Sprouse.  Meet… “Caveman Batman”.

Other comics on sale Wednesday include:

  • Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis #1 from Marvel Comics. Warren Ellis continues his run with the X-Men, now pulled away from the main Marvel Universe.
  • The second issue of Dark Horse Comics’ sci-fi series Hellcyon comes out. The series reminds me of Avatar and is written and drawn by Lucas Marangon.
  • Image Comics has Savage Dragon #160 and Sam & Twitch: The Writer #1. Dragon sees the brutal end of the “Dragon Wars”, while Sam & Twitch is a new bi-weekly crime mini-series.

What will you be picking up this coming week?

DC Comics has a new animated show coming to the Cartoon Network in the 2010-2011 season, based on the comic book Young Justice. The comic featured the adventures of Superboy, Robin, and Impulse, and along the way spotlighted a ton of the other young heroes, like Aqualad and Wonder Girl. From Cartoon Network’s press release:

Young Justice: In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over—to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you’re not just a normal teenager? What if you’re a teenage super hero? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? That’s exactly what the members of Young Justice—Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis—will found out, whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero. This all-new series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based upon characters from DC Comics. Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is the executive producer. Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman Doomsday, The Batman) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man, W.I.T.C.H.) are the producers.

I wonder if the series will be more like the clasic Batman/Superman animated series, or the Cartoon Network’s current campy series, Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

The Mid-Week Pit, Wolverine, Star Wars, Lost, Harry Potter, Action Movies

Lots of stuff is going on, but most importantly…

  • LOST! If you haven’t watched the new episode yet, click here! Tuesday night revealed… Just watch…
  • The Siskel & Ebert less At The Movies has been canceled. Without either of them, the show never felt right, and while it is sad to see the classic thumbs up/thumbs down review show end, I guess it was about time.
  • TV Tonight: Jason Sudeikis returns to 30 Rock. The show has had a rocky season, but it is still funnier than most things on TV. Catch it on NBC’s comedy block at 9:30p.
  • Yesterday from DC Comics, Green Lantern #52 was released with the penultimate chapter to Black Night. Also released (from Marvel Comics) was Amazing Spider-Man #626, introducing the all new (and female?) SCORPION. “The Gauntlet” has been kicking poor Peter Parker in the butt.
  • It is a done deal! Scream 4 is happening with the original cast returning along with writer Kevin Williamson and director Wes Craven! I can not wait for this film to come out.

If you are a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan than you better drop what you are doing and get to a comic book shop! Today, the identity of Twilight will be revealed…

Sorry about the slow updates. There really hasn’t been much to talk about and I’ve been distracted by the returns to two of my favorite shows, Lost and Chuck. In fact, if you haven’t yet, you should really watch the first 6 (awesome) episodes of the new Chuck season! (Note: See the previous article for a link to the new Lost episodes)

  • Howard Stern to replace Simon Cowell on American Idol? Sure, Stern has been in radio for as long as I can rememeber and is just as mean as Cowell, but would you call him a music genius? Or even an expert? He is not a record producer, he hasn’t ushered into countless talents. If they choose him, the show is becoming even more of a joke than when they announced Ellen replacing Paula. When will this show end? With X-Factor coming, is it really needed?
  • The Super Bowl is on tonight, and that means there is another Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet! ABC brings us a Modern Family marathon (with reruns of Cougar Town and The Middle thrown into the mix). Fox has reruns of their usual Sunday toons. And CBS is following the big game with the new reality show, Undercover Boss.
  • Over at Marvel Comics, the Avengers are changing things up again and relaunching with a new #1. Who has been revealed on the new team so far? We have Captain America (looks like it’s the Bucky version), Jessica Drew the Spider-Woman, Iron-Man, the recently revived Hawkeye, and the soon to be a big motion picture Thor! None of these guys are unexpected, but it shows that Marvel is getting away from the “Dark Marvel” age and bringing back the traditional “Hero” aspect of their universe.
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 #32 hit stands earlier this week. This is part 1 of “Twilight”, the story that will finally reveal the identity of Season 8’s “big bad”.

Nation X Issue 2 and Spiderman Issue 617

It has been a while since we’ve done comic spotlights, and sadly, it has been weeks since I’ve been able to pick up any of the new issues that are collecting dust in my pull box. I’m going to work hard to rectify both counts. Among the crowd of books coming out today are two very different titles from Marvel Comics.

First up (pictured on the left above) is Nation X #2.  I have not read Nation X #1, and I have no idea what is currently going on in the X-Books. The reason I’m spotlighting this title is two fold, 1) the promised return of Jubilee and 2) Gambit (the cover looks pretty cool also).  The issue is written by John Barber, C.B. Cebulski, Becky Cloonan, and Tim Fish with art by Cloonan and Fish. The official description: Jubilee returns to the X-Men,returns to the X-Men, Gambit has trouble adjusting to life on Utopia, Northstar deals with the distance that island living necessitates and No-Girl has to save all the X-Men from a foe living right under their noses.

Also coming out today is Amazing Spider-Man #612 from Joe Kelly with art from Max Fiumara. In the new issue, “The Gauntlet” continues with Spider-Man stuck in the middle of a battle between two Rhinos.  I’ve always been a fan of the original Rhino and I can’t wait to see how this issue unfolds.  Next week “Gauntlet” brings us the return of Mysterio.
