This Week In Comics - 9/12

By Michael R. Murray,

New In Comics: Sept 12th

Dark Horse Comics kicks things off with Star Wars: Crimson Empire III Empire Lost tp written by Mike Richardson with art by Paul Gulacy and a cover by Michael S. Bartolo and Dave Dorman which concludes the story of Kir Kanos, the last surviving member of Palpatine’s Royal Guard…

What I’m more excited about, though, is that I missed the Crimson Empire books and while I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to pick them up, solicited at the same time as Crimson Empire III and also on sale today is the Star Wars Crimson Empire Saga HC.  Written by Mike Richardson and Randy Stradley with art by Paul Gulacy and various others with covers by Dave Dorman, this is a dust jacketed hardcover collection of all three Crimson Empire stories in one printing.  I’ll be reading this soon…

DC Comics continues it’s Zero month event with Batman #0 by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo.  This book is the New 52 version of Year One, chronicling the first few efforts after Bruce returns from his worldwide quest to become the Batman…

Deathstroke #0 by Rob Liefeld allows us to witness the horrors that led Slade Wilson to become the most dangerous killer in the world.   I know there are a lot of critics of Liefeld’s work, but all I can think of is just how much the man entertained me in my younger days.  He’s still creating for a reason…

The Before Watchmen representative this week is Before Watchmen Comedian #3 by Brian Azzarello , Len Wein, J. G. Jones, and John Higgins…

Judas Coin hardcover is an original graphic novel by legendary creator Walter Simonson that tracks one of the silver coins Judas was paid to betray Jesus through the history of the DCU, culminating in an epic clash between Batman and Two Face before concluding in the future with Manhunter 2070…

Avengers versus X-Men #11 (of 12) by Brian Michael Bendis, Olivier Coipel, and Jim Cheung promises to be a huge event in itself as Marvel Comics preparing national media attention for the beginning of the end here…

So far the Season One books have been simplified as seemingly targeting a younger reader while updating the origins of the Marvel characters and Greg Pak is writing the new Dr. Strange Season One hardcover.  An original graphic novel illustrated by Emma Rios with a cover by totino Tedesco…

Scarlet Spider # 9 by Christopher Yost and Khoi Pham with a cover by Ryan Stegman has to be mentioned by me because I recently read the Scarlet Spider hardcover and was quite surprised that I liked it as much as I did.  I am looking forward to more of these…

The best of the rest has me eyeing Valiant Entertainment’s XO Manowar #5 written by Robert Vendetti  featuring the glowing art of Lee Garbett and a cover illustration by Phillip Tan.. The more I read about Valiant’s return to comics the more excited I am that they’re here.. I haven’t seen a single bad review about this and if you haven’t tried it yet, maybe you should…

 

And plenty more that’s not listed.  For a more complete list feel free to visit your favorite comic shop or site and if you’re at all interested in my thoughts on what I’ve read recently feel free to check out my facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mycomicstorenet/172073462926176
