Next week sees the return of the world of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead in the new weekly series Skybound X. And I’m not even talking about the lead story in the series being “Rick Grimes 2000” (pictured above left), which is a sci-fi based re-imagining of the fan favorite zombie killer (as introduced in TWD #75). What I’m talking about is the first comic appearance of Clementine from Telltale’s The Walking Dead video game. She will be introduced in a stand alone story in Skybound X before spinning off into her own ongoing titled Clementine, that will be written and drawn by Tillie Walden. I’m excited that we can return to the world established in The Walking Dead, and while I love Kirkman, I’m also excited to see someone new playing in his sandbox. Check out these awesome variant covers featuring Clementine (I’ll be picking up the cover on the right):

What is in your pull list today? Do you prefer physical issues or digital?

After the craziness of “Dark Knights: Death Metal” & “DC Future State”, the Man of Tomorrow is back to form with the return of his two ongoing titles Superman and Action Comics, now with an all new creative team. 

Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson is taking over writing duties on both titles with Phil Hester providing pencils for his first two part story that opens in Superman #29. 

Description: “The Golden Age” features both Kal-El and his son, Jonathan Kent, in a story that looks at the legacy of one of the world’s greatest heroes and asks a difficult question—as Superman ages, could we lose him once again? Facing an otherworldly threat powerful enough to truly hurt, or even kill, the Man of Steel, Jon must sort through his feelings towards Superman, both as a beloved and needed superhero and as his dad as they face a battle that will change both of their lives forever.

Preview images cropped from the new issue:

Superman #29 hits stands, shops, and digital on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 from DC Comics.
