Tyler’s Recommendation…
Doom Patrol/JLA Special #1
“The finale to the Milk Wars is here! I have enjoyed this mini event comic very much, each issue offered something fun to chew on, and the alternate versions of some of our favorite DC characters were awesome. Check this one out if you enjoy some old fashioned weird!”

“The Sandman Murder”: A Crime, a Comic, and a Creator’s Conscience

Published by DC Comics in 1990, The Sandman #19, entitled “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” is arguably one of the best single issues of the acclaimed series; in 1991 the story won the World Fantasy Award for best short fiction — the first comic book to win the award. But shortly after it was published, a copy of the comic was found at a crime scene that shocked a small college community and the comic’s creators, part of an apparent effort to portray a murder as a comics-inspired suicide.

This Week’s Finest: Captain America #698

From Captain America #698 by Chris Samnee & Matthew Wilson

by Mark Waid, Chris Samnee & Matthew Wilson

From November 2010 to March 2011 Mark Waid wrote a five issue mini series called Captain America: Man Out Of Time. It retold the story that first appeared in the pages of the original Avengers series; about how a frozen American war hero was thawed out 60 years later to fight for the Avengers. Some thought it didn’t need to be retold, however, Waid brought something new to it. The writer focused on the emotional struggles of Steve Rogers, a man realizing he can never go back to the life he once knew. Here we are in 2018 and Waid is once again telling the story of Captain America, a man out of time. Although, this time, it is Avengers Cap who has been frozen and inevitably thawed in a not so distant dumpster fire America. Waid impressed me then with Man Out Of Time and he impressed me now with Captain America #698 Out Of Time Part 1, enough to be the finest comic of the week.

“Joshua Williamson and Riley Rossmo team up for a new comic at Vertigo! The world’s greatest adventurer returns from the–presumed–dead to recount the  tale of where he’s been. I’m very intrigued by this concept, and the creative team is awesome!”
