This Week In Comics: 11/21

By Michael R. Murray,

This week the November orders for items scheduled to start shipping in January 2013 are due.  Pull lists are already taken care of by your respective ‘comic book guy,' but if you’re interested in something out of the ordinary it’s better to ask for it in advance.  I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight Dark Horse ComicsLast Day in Vietnam: A Memory hardcover, $17.99, by Will Eisner.  Scheduled to be on sale March 6th, this first time hardcover collection, done in black and white and sepia, recounts Eisner’s own experiences with soldiers not only engaged in the hostilities of daily war but also in larger, more personal, combat…

As far as what to expect this week, it’s a relatively small week (by my account) but you can look for Baltimore Play one shot, $3.50 from Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, Ben Stenbeck, Dave Stewart, and Dark Horse Comics

Wonder Woman assists Batwoman as she hunts down Medusa in Batwoman #14, $2.99, by J. H. Williams and Haden Blackman and DC Comics

Your appetite for Rise of the Third Army can be sated with Green Lantern New Guardians #14, $2.99, written by Antony Bedard with a cover and interior art by Aaron Kuder.  Find out what Kyle Rayner fears right here at the hands of Arkillo, the god of terror…

Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson turn out Frankenstein Alive Alive #2, $3.99, picking up where Mary Shelley’s classic novel left off for IDW

Based on what I’ve read in Bloodshot for Valiant Comics, just the idea that Duane Swierczynski is writing the new Judge Dredd #1, $3.99, is enticing enough for me.  He’s joined by Nelson Daniel, Paul Gulacy, and Zach Howard, and the new ongoing Dredd series, in its 35th year, is also by IDW

Marvel Comics sends out the first sold out book of the week in Amazing Spider-man #698, $3.99, written by Dan Slott with art by Richard Nelson and a cover by Paolo Rivera.  The last story arc kicks into high gear and the end of Spider-man’s world begins when Doctor Octopus discovers who Peter Parker really is…

Marvel Now continues its makeover on the Marvel U with Captain America #1, $3.99, by Rick Remender and John Romita.  When Captain America’s thrust into an inhospitable world far from home, with no country and no allies, what’s left for the Sentinel of Liberty to protect?  The saga of Dimension Z starts here…

Mark Waid and Leinil Francis Yu, with cover art by Chung Yu have produced the Indestructible Hulk #1, 3.99, and Banner, once again in complete control of the Hulk, is now an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.!...

From Boom Studios we get the return of a Fan-favorite phenomenon in a new ongoing series.  Written by Grace Randolph and illustrated by Russell Dauterman with cover art by Stephane Roux and Jonboy Meyers, Supurbia #1, 3.99, chronicling life after the masks come off and the super heroes have to come home to the sordid problems of everyday life in the suburbs…

Valiant Entertainment has left behind the Summer of Valiant and continues their march towards destiny with Harbinger #6, $3.99, by Joshua Dysart, Philippe Briones, and Mico Suayan.  Peter, critically wounded after his battle with Toyo Harada, turns to childhood friend Kris, and will find either forgiveness and help or vengeance…

X-O Manowar #7, $3.99, by Robert Venditti, Lee Garbett, and Doug Braithwaite, get ready for the latest confrontation between Aric and Ninjak, all while the Vine invasion force approaches Earth…

And plenty more that’s not listed.  For a more complete list feel free to visit your local comic store or favorite site.  If you’re interested in more of what I think, follow me on Twitter at Mycomicstore001 or like my Facebook page.
