Welcome back to COMICS TO FEAST ON! Everyone can rest easy now that the anticipation of The New 52 has subsided. No more number 1’s, all we can do now is sit back and enjoy the ride as the DCnU carries us forth into a new era. But, enough romanticism, let’s get on to some comics!
With the ever-increasing number of books coming out between the tie-ins, the crossovers, and the new series, we’ve got to limit our list of comics for the week somehow. Rather than cramming so many previews down your throat that you barely breathe, I’m going to give you my ten most anticipated books of the week. So feast your eyes on these! Whether you’ve been into comics since you were a young’un, or you’re new to the game, I’m here to help you decide which books to read. Read on for the skinny…
A few years ago Grant Morrison redefined the character of Superman, in a way, with his widely praised ‘All-star Superman’ series. Morrison worked to give Clark Kent a new persona, changing the way fans perceived the most superlative superhero of all time. As part of the New 52, Morrison graces us with his return to the Man of Steel. Anyone who knows Morrison’s work knows that he continually explores new concepts and phases just as a great artist should. As one of the most definitive and prolific comic writers of our time, Morrison’s brand spankin’ new ‘Action Comics’ ongoing is a landmark in comic history. Due on September 7th, this is one new series that you can’t miss, so peep this epic preview from DC Comics. Read on for the skinny…
Welcome to COMICS TO FEAST ON, which is a slightly altered version of the usual Pull and Hold. Rather than cramming so many previews down your throat that you barely breathe, I’m going to give you my ten most anticipated books of the week. So feast your eyes on these!
With the ever-increasing number of books coming out between the tie-ins, the crossovers, and the new series, we’ve got to limit our list of comics for the week somehow. Rather than focus on every major comic hitting the shelves I’ll narrow it down to ten books that stand out from the rest. Whether you’ve been into comics since you were a young’un, or you’re new to the game, I’m here to help you decide which books to read. If we’ve left out anything important, let us know what you’re stoked for in the comments. Read on for the skinny…
This morning Warner Bros graced us comic fans with a beautiful gift, the first official image from the reboot of the Superman film franchise. Superman: Man of Steel is directed by Zack Snyder (300 and Watchmen) and produced by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight). The image shows the new face of Superman as well as the brand spankin’ new costume, and boy does that giant “S” look good. Why he’s breaking into/out of a vault, I will leave for your curious minds to ponder. Read on for the skinny…
Now that the long running (and highly successful) “BRIGHTEST DAY” story-arc is finally coming to an end, publisher DC and the rest of their Uni are going to have no choice but to sift through the aftermath for the months, maybe years, to come. One such title is the newly announced “BRIGHTEST DAY AFTERMATH: THE SEARCH FOR SWAMP THING”, and no, you didn’t read that wrong, it actually does say “SWAMP THING”. Below you can check out the cover art and get the full synopsis, but details on the project thus far are pretty sparse.

“Following the events of Brightest Day, the new protector of Earth has been chosen. But one reluctant hero making his return to the DCU is trying to convince Batman, Superman and the others heroes of the DC Universe that this may not be a good thing, because he can see that things are not right and mankind’s brightest days are indeed over.”
