Tyler’s Recommendation …
flash10Flash #10
“When Shade appears in any comic I’m stoked, so his visit to Central City for the new story arc has my full attention. Josh Williamson definitely has the writing chops to do the character justice, and the preview pages from Felipe Watanabe look pretty great.”

tarzanontheplanetoftheapes1Tarzan and the Planet of the Apes #1
“I think the strangest crossover this year, and that’s saying something, is this book. I’m a sucker for both Tarzan and PotA stories though, so I have to see what the top-notch talent have in store for such two distinct but classic properties.”

Cosmo’s Recommendation …
TalesOfBatmanTales of the Batman Alan Brennert HC
“There is a long list of talented authors who have written for The Dark Knight, and Alan Brennert deserves to ranked as highly as any of them. This long overdue hardcover collects all of his Batman stories in one place, including “To Kill a Legend” & “The Autobiography of Bruce Wayne” which are two of the best Batman tales ever. You also get some additional The Brave and the Bold team-ups and fan favorite Elseworlds The Holy Terror. Artistic collaborators include Jim Aparo, Norm Breyfogle and Joe Staton. What else do you need?”

The Rough Guide To DC Rebirth

Like Marvel comics has had before them, today I’m taking a look at the new DC Comics Rebirth lineup of titles announced last weekend. DC Comics attempted to reboot in the summer of 2011 with their New 52 initiative. Though initially successful, readers quickly tired of the redundant writing & art styles that was often overtly in your face with little substance and dated concepts, while creative talent left the books in droves over accusations of overreaching editorial mandates. In 2015, the publisher began walking away from the concept; first with their Convergence event whose story was used to reestablish the Multiverse and then the DC You initiative,  a sincere attempt to diversify the style and creative talent on their line of books. In spite of some really great comics, DC You failed to reestablish the publisher’s already shrinking market share while the one two punch of Star Wars & Secret Wars allowed chief competitor Marvel Comics to dominate the direct market. During WonderCon 2016, DC Comics announced another new initiative with a relaunch of the publishers comics with new #1’s and creative teams for their series of titles. Some look great, some of the creators brought in during DC You have leveled up, some familiar faces are sticking around, some new writers have been brought into the fold and some comics vet’s are returning after years away from the publisher. Some books look great, some have potential, some look kind of bland and some look like hot garbage. Will divide the contenders from the pretenders with Yay, Mayhaps or Nay. As always, remember that not even all of the creative teams have been announced let alone all the possible series so this lineup is subject to change.

The Rough Guide To All New, All Different Marvel

Fall is upon us but while Secret Wars and it’s many tie in’s sit in delay purgatory for the time being, Marvel is once again relaunching it’s superhero line with a whole bunch of #1 issues for their comics. With that said, the publisher is moving from a different position than they were in with Marvel Now & All New Marvel Now. With the former, Marvel had a lot of young creative talent that they were able to re-position during the relaunch to give their line a fresh make over and give creators they had brought up on  their lower tier titles a higher profile like Jonathan Hickman, Jerome  Opena, Esad Ribic, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Jason Aaron or Rick Remender. After Marvel Now was a success, they added several new talents into their fold by building off the success of the original relaunch, giving creators like Ales Kot, Tradd Moore, Michael Walsh, Felipe Smith or Michel Fiffe their first shot at a major comics launch with the publisher. Now, much of the talent from both those initiatives has moved on from the publisher. In their place, Marvel has new creators coming on from all sorts of different mediums in addition to some of their old standby’s like Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Waid or Greg Land, and they are publishing a lot of comics. Probably too many. Below is a list of all the announced new series categorized into grouping of Yay, Mayhaps or Nah like we did with Secret Wars. Keep in mind that I won’t be including series that are basically the same creative talent and that Marvel will surely have more books to announce in the months ahead.

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
 
Dean’s Recommendations: 
Batman #44

“The bad news, Greg Capullo didn’t pencil Batman #44. The good news, Jock did. Remember how great The Black Mirror was? Don’t miss Batman #44 where Snyder and Jock once again come together to tell a story of the Dark Knight.”

 

 

Red Skull #3

“Josh Williamson is so hot right now he could write a buddy comic about a terrorist and a Nazi and make it charming. Don’t miss the concluding issue of Red Skull this week. I don’t even have a guess at what might go down.”
