New Comic Books Spotlight for the Week of 12-17-14
Last year was an anomaly for new comics because two consecutive Wednesdays were Christmas and New Years, so the December schedule was jammed into two fewer weeks. This year only has New Years to contend with so that fifth week is essentially a wash. Regardless, this week is action-packed, especially for DC fans.
Speaking of, DC has lots of great reads for continuing and new threads. You can pick your poison from Batman and Robin #37, Batman Superman #17, Batwoman #37, Green Lantern New Guardians #37, Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #5, Supergirl #37, Teen Titans #5, and Wonder Woman #37.
The House of Ideas (Marvel) reaches their penultimate issue of AXIS #8 while also wrapping up their ancillary series with AXIS Hobgoblin #3 and AXIS Revolutions #4. Elsewise they have some good, all-new choices with All-New Captain America #2, All-New X-Men #34, Black Widow #13, Deathlok #3, Fantastic Four #14, Guardians of the Galaxy #22, Inhuman #10 (which will probably get a big bump after the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. mid-season finale), Ms. Marvel #10, Scarlet Spiders #2, and Spider-Woman #2.
Image trots out a new Rumble #1 by John Arcudi (W) and James Harren (A), Wayward #35, and Wicked + The Divine #6. IDW has a double dose of G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #209 and G.I. Joe (vol 7) #4, as well as Transformers More Than Meets the Eye #36.
Batman #37 (DC)
It’s Batman, of course it gets the spotlight. The Joker returns and had previously taken over the Justice League as he works his way to the Bat. What hijinks are in store this time?
Justice League #37 (DC)
The Amazo virus continues to wreak havoc, but what is Lex Luthor’s ultimate motivation? Again, what surprises are in store with a virus that means the human race will evolve even further?
Multiversity Thunderworld #1 (DC)
Captain Marvel takes center stage as this installment is on Earth-5, Thunderworld! A throwback to the Golden Age as the Marvel family takes on classic Captain Marvel villains like Mr. Mind and the Monster Society of Evil!
