WHAT COMICS I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT WEEK 9/3/08
Out of the books coming out on 9/3/08 these are the ones I’m looking forward too and a couple I’m not.
LOOKING FORWARD TO
“Witness the biggest shake-up in X-Men history. With the mansion in Westchester destroyed, the X-Men are moving to San Francisco. But it’s not just a change in the zip code. Come see what the momentous change in status quo means to the X-Men. In every issue of MANIFEST DESTINY Mike Carey (X-MEN, ENDANGERED SPECIES) brings you an installment of a story featuring one the first X-Men,Iceman. Also in this first issue are stories by C.B. Cebulski (X-MEN:DIVIDED WE STAND, LONERS) and Skottie Young (X-MEN:DIVIDED WE STAND, NEW X-MEN).” – midtowncomics.com
- I want to love X-MEN again, and hopefully this will serve me better than the regular series. This book might just become the new X-MEN UNLIMITED if it keeps going.
Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman lead the heroes of the DCU against the machinations of their malevolent counterparts, resulting in a cataclysmic event that will change the world – but not like anyone involved expects. Plus, Hawkman and Gangbuster make their move to rescue Tarot, and Konvikt breaks loose. -midtowncomics.com
- I’m liking SUPERMAN acting like BATMAN and WONDER WOMAN, he’s wrecking peoples faces.
A powerful enemy from Buffy’s past confronts the Slayer and Fray in the future, having allied with Fray’s greatest foe. Meanwhile, Dawn’s gone through another bizarre change. Joss Whedon and Karl Moline, co-creators of the hit comics series Fray: Future Slayer, reunite in Buffy Season Eight with the highly anticipated story arc “Time of Your Life.” Jo Chen and Georges Jeanty provide covers. -midtowncomics.com
- by far Season 8 is the best season since BUFFY left high school.
Because you demanded it! The Secret Six are back in an all-new ongoing series that promises to deliver some of the darkest, most twisted action-adventure the DC Universe has seen since…well, the last time the Secret Six got together!Writer extraordinaire Gail Simone (BIRDS OF PREY) is reunited with BIRDS penciller Nicola Scott to chronicle the adventures of the Six, and you will not believe what they have in store. Join Catman, Scandal, Deadshot, Ragdoll, and ?? as they prepare for an adventure that will take them through a gauntlet across the seediest parts of the DC Universe, and will ultimately pit them against a foe more monstrous and murderous than any they’ve had to face! Don’t miss the beginning of the most ferocious and scandalous Six story yet! -midtowncomics.com
- I loved the mini series and anywhere NIKOLA SCOTT goes I’m down.
A “Batman: R.I.P.” tie-in! “Heart of Hush” Part 3 of 5! To save the sanity of a kidnapped child, Batman must confront the Scarecrow! But their battle is just a part of Hush’s plot against Batman and Bruce Wayne, setting the stage for the most shocking surprise ending of the year! Guest-starring Catwoman! –midtowncomics.com
- I’m calling it now, I think this will be the pick of the week. Last issue was awesome and it’s a light week.
The penultimate chapter of “”Secret Origin””! Hal Jordan and Sinestro face off against Abin Sur’s killer – Atrocitus! But what dark secret has Atrocitus uncovered about the impending “”Blackest Night?”” And what revelation will forever change the relationship between Hal and Carol Ferris? -midtowncomics.com
- I love Green Lantern, but I’m starting to tire of this story…They keep teasing the build up to BLACKEST NIGHT and I’m trying to be patient but come on get on with it already. Thankfully this is the next to last issue of this arc.
WHAT I’M NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO
- Just when I thought they could sink no farther…they do. The only good thing is they’ve finally stopped with the ZOMBIE covers to everything, but now we’re being “treated” to APE variant covers for a ton of books….ugh. I didn’t really care for this idea when DC did it in the 90’s…at least it was part of a larger story that spread into the annuals of the JLA members, and they had GORILLA GRODD. And they’re charging $3.99 for this, anybody who buys this book needs to be kicked in the head.
- I still have all my copies from the last time they tried to do a old school TITANS book and they’re still awesome…but this book is awful.
