Once again, my selections are below.
- CATWOMAN #55 – The solicitations still talk about
Catwoman” without revealing who she is. She’ll be
going to a JSA
member for training, so she’s probably pretty new at
the hero game.
I’m interested in how this will play out.
- ROBIN #150 – It sounds like a big culmination
issue for the #150.
- BATMAN: UNDER THE HOOD VOL. 2 TP – Continuing DC’s
recent trend of
advance solicitation, this TPB continues the Red Hood
story and is due
- SUPERMAN RETURNS: THE MOVIE ADAPTATION – Advance
- ALL STAR SUPERMAN #4 – Morrison and Quietly
continue their run.
- SUPERMAN #652 – Kurt Busiek and Geoff Johns are
the writing. I admit, that peaks my interest.
- ACTION COMICS #839 – Again, Johns and Busiek.
- SUPERMAN/BATMAN #27 – Mark Verheiden takes over
the writing with
- SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN VOL. 2 TP – More
Silver Age Superman.
Volume one is being resolicited; I’ll try to get that
it comes out again.
- SUPERGIRL #8 – Greg Rucka is on the writing now.
I enjoyed the
Superman/Batman arc that introduced her, so I’m
tempted to pick this
up. I’ll probably try for the TPBs first, possibly
with this next
- SUPERGIRL: POWER TP – Collecting Jeph Loeb’s run.
solicited for June 14, so I’ll probably look at the
and then decide if I want to add this to the
- CRISIS AFTERMATH: THE SPECTRE #1 – A three issue
the Spectre’s new host.
- 52: WEEKS 1-4 – This is an ambitious project. 52
written in collaboration by Grant Morrison, Geoff
Johns, Greg Rucka
and Mark Waid that cover the time between “Infinite
Crisis” and “One
Year Later.” It’s been revealed that Superman, Batman
Woman will not be present during that year. This
could be a very
interesting project. Still, even at $2.50 an issue,
it adds up over a
year. Picking this up would be like adding four
titles to my pull
list, so I think I’ll have to pass.
- GREEN LANTERN #12 – The Cyborg Superman is back,
so this could
have a lot of anger involved on Hal’s part.
- GREEN LANTERN CORPS: RECHARGE TP – Collecting the
series that I’ll review upon completion. It’s advance
June as well.
- ION #2 – The Ron Marz 12 issue series
- SECRET SIX #1 – Gail Simone continues what she
“Villains United” last year.
- ULTIMATE EXTINCTION #5 (of 5) – This completes
- ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR #30 – A new story arc,
with the return of
- ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #94 and 95 – Issue 94 wraps up
arc, and issue 95 kicks off the Ultimate Morbius arc.
Issue 95 is
part 1 of 5, so issue 100 should be either stand-alone
or the start of
a new storyline.
- ULTIMATE X-MEN #70 – It’s the continuation of the
- AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #532 – Part one of the Civil
- CIVIL WAR #1 (of 7) – Mark Millar and Steve
McNiven are kicking
off Marvel’s summer event. It’s an interesting
concept, with the
Registration Act that has been plaguing the X-Men for
so long being
expanded out to include all supers. I’ll be picking
- SHE-HULK #8 – A Civil War tie-in.
- WOLVERINE #42 – A Civil War tie-in.
- FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN #8 – Peter David
Wieringo continue their run.
- SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN #26 – Part four of five of
- DAREDEVIL #85 – Brubaker’s run continues.
- FANTASTIC FOUR – A DEATH IN THE FAMILY – ONE-SHOT
– This could be worthwhile. I’m picking it up, as
there’s no regular
FF title this month.
- FOUR #30 – The final issue of this series.
- NEW AVENGERS #19 – Warning, there are more
- SQUADRON SUPREME #3 – I’m really looking forward
- INCREDIBLE HULK #95 – The Planet Hulk story
- EXILES #80 and 81 – More World Tour stuff. Chris
replaces Tony Bedard as writer with issue 84.
- UNCANNY X-MEN #473 – Part 2 of 3 of Claremont’s
last story arc for
- X-MEN: THE END – MEN AND X-MEN #5 (of 6) – This is
almost done as
- ESSENTIAL CLASSIC X-MEN VOL. 2 – Includes Uncanny
X-Men #25-53 and
