New In Comics; February 20th, 2013

By Michael R. Murray,

All right, so I’ve noticed that I’ve received some Twos, Threes and Fours on my ratings and I always give myself the Five… I actually spend a couple of hours every week working on these columns.   I do put some amount of thought into weekly themes, even if they’re not immediately apparent.   Yet, I’ve not ever received an email or a comment. 

If you’ve got something to share, please do so.  I am by no means the be all, end all of comics.  I don’t know nearly half of everything and my opinion is my own.  If you disagree with something I say, tell me why.  If you think I’m wrong, please share.  I’ve no intention of taking my book and leaving, I plan on continuing to post here, and on my own site, regularly and welcome differing views.  Sometimes I beg for them.  With that said, let’s see what’s worth going to the store for this week…

Dark Horse Comics has got Black Beetle #2 (of 4), $3.99, by Francesco Francavilla.  No Way Out is the story of Black Beetle investigating the mass murder of Colt City’s crime bosses.  This surprised me in the following it has with some of my older readers…

Fables #126, $2.99, written by Bill Willingham, with art by Mark Buckingham and Steve Leialoha and a cover by Joao Ruas for DC Comics was a HUGE surprise to me.  I have only one regular subscriber to this book and found it kind of in a backwards sort of way, and love it.  I’m having an easy time moving the hardcover collections right now, but that’s all based on the quality of this series.  Fables is fun…

Fables deluxe edition hardcover volume 6, $29.99, collects Fables #46 – 51 of the Eisner Award-winning series.  My only complaint is that with the release of #126, the deluxe edition hard covers should be coming out more frequently.  We’re not even halfway caught up, yet…

Justice League of America #1, $3.99, by Geoff Johns and David Finch has the American flag on the standard cover, but features a variant cover for every state in the union, and then some.  The District of Columbia and Virginia appear to be the only sold out variants.  Yes.  You can also find a Puerto Rico variant and for $149.99 you can find a complete set…

Saga #10, $2.99, from Image Comics, Brian K. Vaughan, and Fiona Staples was a surprise in that I didn’t think it was as good as everyone says.  I did enjoy it.  I just didn’t think it was all that…

Marvel Comics has got Superior Spider-man #4, $3.99, by Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli.  Can the new “improved” Spider-man live up to the promise that Massacre will never kill again?  I cannot believe that this was the best-selling book in January.  I cannot believe this particular copy is sold out!  You people are slowly killing this Spider-fan…

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 last week received the Tetris stress block he had ordered.  It got a lot of immediate use when he realized that his one unit equaled one case of 28.
