Showcase Saturday 4.21.18
There’s no mystery as to what I’ll be talking about tomorrow, but have a look-see at everything I bought this week anyway:
ACTION COMICS #1000 – Celebrate 1000 issues of Action Comics with an all-star lineup of top talent as they pay tribute to the comic that started it all! From today’s explosive action to a previously unpublished tale illustrated by the legendary Curt Swan to the Man of Tomorrow’s future—this very special, oversized issue presents the best of the best in Superman stories!
DEADMAN #6 – Just as Ra’s al Ghul is hidden in this six-part miniseries, so is his near-demonic influence hidden and slowly revealed in this final issue! Boston Brand’s death was no accident, but a planned and ruthless murder…orchestrated by none other than the Head of the Demon. What Deadman needs now is either death—or the help of the World’s Greatest Detective!
MISTER MIRACLE #8 – This issue, it’s back to Apokolips—and a return to war. Scott Free is engaged in a bloody battle against Darkseid’s forces, this time without Barda by his side—because her hands are full, thanks to a domestic situation at home. With his attention split by his concerns for his wife’s commitments back on Earth, can Mister Miracle hold his own against the minions of darkness?
SUPER SONS #15 – “end of innocence” part one! Robin and Superboy have been to hell and back again, but this time their friendship must stand the ultimate test: the Amazo Project! Kid Amazo returns as the pieces of this deadly plan fall into place and reveal a secret that might tear apart Damian and Jon’s growing friendship.
SUPERMAN #45 – “BOYZARRO RE-DEATH” finale! The challenge of the Bizarroverse continues as the Super Foes battle the Legion of Fun! As Superman and Son return to Hamilton for a quick recharge, they learn what the little town truly meant to them—and what they meant to the locals of the town.
THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD: BATMAN AND WONDER WOMAN #3 – Batman arrives in Tir Na Nóg to help Wonder Woman solve the mystery of a murdered god. But while he may be the World’s Greatest Detective, he soon learns that the techniques he uses on our world may not aid him in this strange new one. As the investigation continues and new suspects are revealed, this dynamic duo learns that each may be more dangerous than the last.
JOHN WICK #2 – John Wick’s origin story continues! In the underworld of El Paso, Texas, a familiar face introduces an ex-con named John Wick to the local branch of the mysterious Continental Hotel, a neutral zone where professional killers spend their down time. But can John adhere to the rules of the Continental? Or will his search for vengeance destroy his chances for a peaceful life? Also… does John Wick actually have…a cat?
Come back tomorrow to see if you’ve managed to correctly deduce just what comic I’ll be writing about. This is a tough one!
it will be!
