3.The Big Stuff this week

  • Man of Steel #1 - Brian Michael Bendis is starting his first major comic this week with the 6 issue Man of Steel Miniseries. The series is paced slowly but well worth the read and with the weekly schedule, the Bendis Burn doesn’t apply!! This series will result in 3 new Superman titles (Though no new Superman…)

  • Justice League: No Justice #4 - The end of Justice League: No Justice ends in an explosive finale before setting up many of the No Justice Spinoffs. (No Teen Titans or Titans Set up)

  1. Starting Points
  • Man of Steel #1 is definitely the best starting point. With it setting up the next Era of Superman

  • Green Arrow Annual #2. Though a Justice League: No Justice Tie-in, it sets up the Green Arrow’s next big story!

  • Batman Prelude to the Wedding: Robin vs. Ra’s Al Ghul #1 for people who want to jump into Batman starting with the Wedding (Which is perfectly viable), this one shot is the first of a series of oneshots to look at how the wedding will affect Batman’s supporting cast. Simultaneously a cash grab and a celebration of Batman’s Villains, this series has NO right and I mean NO RIGHT to be as good as it is. Every read is incredibly well written. I’m rambling aren’t I…… Well check it out!!

Many thanks, as always. Hope there’s more Hourman to come. I love that series and I’m so happy it’s being digitized.

All of the prelude to the wedding stories are very good indeed. My favorite was The Joker story from DC Nation, I think it was called “Your Big Day”.

It was!!
