New In Comics - February 13

By Michael R. Murray,

Another week’s passed and this one was marred by a huge snowstorm.  I didn’t get half here what some other areas received and it was still a colossal Charlie Foxtrot of time and effort to clean.  Yet clean it is (for the most part) and it’s time to get on with ‘normal’ life.  Normal being comics, of course.  There’s this article to write, I’ve got some reading I’d like to get done, and some reviews of things I’ve read that need to be done, and I still have to reconcile my invoices from last year so I can get my taxes done.  All of that should keep me busy enough for today, but in spite of already having books I want to read, here’s what I’m looking forward to this week;

From Dark Horse Comics and Faith Erin Hicks comes Adventures of Superhero Girl HC, $16.99.  Sure I enjoy my comics, and yes, my tastes are influenced by whom I’d like to share my favorites with, but sometimes magic comes in the form of a simple story.  This is the story of a young female superhero battling monsters, both supernatural and mundane, in an all to ordinary world.  She can leap tall buildings in a single bound and buys her capes at second hand stores but has a weakness for kittens…

Star Wars #1 was explosively successful and with this week’s release of Star Wars #2, $2.99, we’ll get to see if Brian Wood, Carlos, D’anda, Alex Ross, and Gabe Eitaeb can really bottle success.  Princess Leia hunts out the Imperial spy with Luke while Han and Chewy run afoul of Boba Fett and Darth Vader’s sent on a secret mission for the Emperor…

Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman #17, $3.99, is a very popular title for DC Comics among a popular storyline in Death of the Family.  I am interested in reading it just as soon as it hopefully is packaged like the Batman HC The Night of the Owls, $29.99.  In this kind of packaging I don’t have to get every different collection to read where this story went.  It’s all done here for me as one story collecting Batman #8 – 9, Batman Annual #1, Detective Comics #9, Batman The Dark Knight #9, Batwing #9, Batman and Robin #9, Red Hood and the Outlaws #9, Birds of Prey #9, Batgirl #9, Nightwing #8 – 9, and All Star Western #9.  Some of these individual stories I have no interest in but now I’ll read the whole story…

Marvel Comics had the Eisner award winner for best comic of the year in Daredevil and now with Daredevil by Mark Waid HC vol 1, $34.99, by Waid and Paolo Rivera, I can finally read the first 10 issues in one sitting and see how it stacks up against what I thought deserved to win…

Uncanny X-Force Prem HC Final Extinction book 2, $24,99, wraps up the final issues by Rick Remender, David G. Williams, and Julian Totino Todesco.  What’s left of the team must rally together to face the new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants…

Valiant Entertainment’s Bloodshot #8, #.99, by Duane Swierczynski, Manuel Garcia, and Arturo Lozzi as it gears up for the Harbinger Wars and the book I’m going to read before I finish even checking in the order?... Archer and Armstrong #7, $3.99, by Fred Van Lent and Emanuela Lupacchino.  Not only is this a book that I dearly love, but I’ve been anxiously waiting for this issue since the first time I saw the cover solicited.  It's one of my most favorite covers ever...

There is still plenty more that aren't 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.

 

Michael R. Murray is a full time Letter Carrier for the United States Postal Service who could have made it to work on Saturday, and kind of wished he did, but is thankful that the Postal Service canceled deliveries because snow clean up took a long time and a large toll.
