Jon Says:

I think this is the end? Pretty sure it was just a six-issue mini. Even if it is meant to be ongoing, it’ll probably stop here and then start up again in a copule of months with a new title and a new #1. I don’t know. Anyway, it’s been pretty good, even though I’m so tired of evil Superman stories.

City Boy


Minkyu Jung Regular

After barely fighting off Intergang with the help of Metropolis, the city itself in the form of a dragon avatar, City Boy realizes the more he taps into his powers, the louder it is inside his head…hearing and feeling everything about the city and its history all at once, nonstop. So, he goes to ask for help from someone else who hears all of Metropolis all the time: Superman!

Jon Says:

While Spirit World has had some existing DC characters from the start, this and The Vigil have been acking in that department, so I’m glad to see Superman making an appearance. Not that I don’t think these “Dawn of DC” books can’t stand on their own, but they do need to feel connected to the larger universe they’re part of.

Conan the Barbarian (Titan Books)


Dan Panosian Regular

Jon Says:

For my thoughts on this, see my Unbagging of the Free Comic Book Day issue.

I forgot to grab the variant cover by series artist Roberto de la Torre, and there is another variant I’d like to have, but I’m not sure that I’m going to try getting it. If there are any left at the shop next week, I’ll probably pick up the de la Torre cover.

Oh, and I got in the spirit of things and wore the right shirt when I went out to the shop today.

It’s Knight Terrors time. These issues wrap up the initial crop of tie-in minis.

Once Upon a Time at The End of The World


Kevin Wada Regular

In the post-apocalypse, paradise can’t last for long! The cracks in Maceo and Mezzy’s oasis turn to chasms as their relationship stability (and that of the community) faces its first disasters. Will Golgonzola, and their relationship, survive the horrors of the wasteland?

Jon Says:

I’ve been enjoying this, but I have to wonder how much longer it can continue, given the way things have been going, and, y’know, the title. Of course, we have had a jump ahead in time earlier on that provided some idea of where things are headed.

Peacemaker Tries Hard!


Kris Anka Regular

Betrayed, bleeding, and broken, Peacemaker drags his finely toned body to a local watering hole where he can existentially question his violent pursuit of peace from the safety of a barstool. But his wallowing is short-lived. He’s going to get his dog back…but he’s going to need some help. Lucky for Peacemaker, his parole officer, Richard, has a colorful costumed past…

Kris Anka Regular

Release: Aug 01, 2023

FEATURING DEATHSTROKE! WELL…KINDA! Things go from bad to worse when Peacemaker, with the help of some Golden Age superheroes, infiltrates General Immortus’s secret island base–but ends up captured by a drug smuggler with a penchant for his own goods. Bullets, powder, and punches fly, and Peacemaker’s geriatric squad have victory in sight. But first…they’ll have to get through Deathstroke! Well…kinda…

Jon Says:

I forgot to pick up #3 last month. Rectified that while picking up #4. It’s been fun so far.

The Sandman Universe Special: Thessaly


Reiko Murakami Regular

The immortal witch Thessaly is no stranger to dead ends. But she’s won the hearts of gods and beings more powerful than gods, and persistence has always been her strong suit. Following her scheming machinations in Nightmare Country and Dead Boy Detectives, Thessaly is more determined than ever to suss out the seemingly impenetrable mystery surrounding the death of Madison Flynn. To do that, she’s going to have to get close to the source material–close enough to magic herself into the job of screenwriter on Madison Flynn’s biopic. But she’s going to need a little help to keep the gig…perhaps from one of those Muses the King of Dreams told her about long ago… The Sandman Universe Special: Thessaly reunites Nightmare Country visionary James Tynion IV with star Faithless artist Maria Llovet to take you on a journey through the festering darkness pulsating beneath Hollywood’s glitz and glamour!


WriterJames Tynion IV
ArtistMaria Llovet
Cover ArtistReiko Murakami

Jon Says:

As I said before, I wish this storyline could just play out in a single series instead of all of these minis and one-shot. Still, this one is by Tynion himself, so it should be good.



Jerry Gaylord Foil Variant

AT THE MERCY OF THE SILVER MIST! Natasha Irons may have solved the mystery of the strange intruder at Steelworks Tower…but will she live to tell the tale? The Silver Mist’s plan to sabotage Steel’s technology takes a twisted new turn, and murder is in the air! Meanwhile, John Henry’s bold vision for Metropolis has driven a wedge between him and the Super-Family, all on the eve of Metropolis’s biggest celebration: Centennial Day.


WriterMichael Dorn
ArtistSami Basri

Jon Says:

I’m running out of steam here. Making these posts takes more work than you might expect, and hardly anyone is reading them anyway.

*Sigh* This one has been fine. Well done for a first-time comic-writer, and all part of what I’ve been saying about how it’s a good time to be a fan of the Superman Family.

Swamp Thing: Green Hell HC

The Earth is all but done. The last remnants of humanity cling to a mountaintop island lost in endless floodwater. The parliaments of the Green, the Red, and the Rot have united their powers to summon an avatar-a horrific, humanity-killing monster who could only be stopped by Alec Holland. Shame he’s been dead for decades… Collects the complete miniseries SWAMP THING: GREEN HELL #1-3.

Jon Says:

I decided to wait on this when it was coming out in individual issues. I generally like Lemire’s work, and I’ve heard good things about this.

As always, special thanks go out to my comic shop, Comic Logic Books & Artwork. Please remember to support your local comic shop, and if you need to find one, click here.
