This Week In Comics 9/26

By Michael R. Murray,

What's new in comics this week:

Well it’s not quite October yet, but Diamond Comics through Previews Publications is shipping out the Halloween mini comics that your favorite retailer may have ordered for you, and while some stores may hold them for the festive occasion, this will give you plenty of time to finish your favorite super costume to wear on All Hallow’s Eve when you go to get some of these lovelies, which may include, but are not limited to, Strawberry Shortcake, New Crusaders, Zombie Kid, and Ghostbusters…

Axe Cop President of the World #3 (of 3) from Dark Horse Comics and Malachai Nicolle, Ethan Nicolle, and Dirk Eric Schulz gets the nod as that book is sold out.

DC Comics is shipping out copies of American Vampire #31 variant edition by Scott Snyder, Rafael Albuquerque, and Francesco Francavilla.  “The Blacklist” builds to it’s horrible conclusion as Skinner and Pearl wipe another name off their list and Pearl gets a terrible shock as she realizes things aren’t as they appear to be.  I don’t see the regular edition of this comic shipping today but this one is another that’s sold out already…

Geoff Johns, Ivan Reis, and Joe Prado have churned out Aquaman #0 in which we have the first appearance of Atlantis as well as the first encounter with Atlanteans.  Having just recently read the Trench hardcover this series has a whole new excitement for me that it didn’t previously have.  They really have made a great character out of Aquaman…

In National Comics Rose and Thorn #1 Tom Taylor, Neil Googe, and Ryan Sook answer the question can a teenage girl with a dark secret, readjusting to life after being institutionalized, learn how to live again?  It’s a classic DC character taken in a compelling new direction…


Joe Kubert Tarzan of the Apes Artist Edition is coming from IDW and I can’t say enough about these artist editions.  We opened up my Mazzucchelli Daredevil Reborn here at a party a couple of weeks ago and even the non comic people were impressed with it.  IDW’s really struck gold with these books and I’m looking forward to having more of them.  This particular volume was completely done by Joe Kubert and the art was scanned from the original pages and reproduced at the original size.  It collects six stories from Kubert’s run on Tarzan including his standout four part adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs Tarzan Lord of the Apes, the story of Lord Greystoke being orphaned in the African jungle and adopted by Kala.  This volume is also sold out.  So if you care, find it and get it while you can…

From Marvel Comics I’m very much looking forward to Spider-man: Lizard premiere hardcover No Turning Back by Kurt Busiek, Dan Slott, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Ron Frenz, and Stefano Caselli.  This volume collects Amazing Spider-man #688 – 691 and Untold Tales of Spider-man #9 as Morbius The Living Vampire attempts to cure Curt Conners of the curse of The Lizard.  I prefer the hardcovers to the individual comics and actually have a number of them sitting and waiting.  I’m thinking by the time I get through Amazing Spider-man #700 collected I’ll have myself a very nice Spider-day…

And plenty more that’s not listed.  For a more complete list please check with your favorite web site or store and if you care to read my thoughts on what I’ve read lately feel free to check out my Facebook page here.
