This Week’s Comics – March 1

It was going to be a relatively slow week in terms of new comics, but I managed to find some things to stretch out my reading, with a few new number 1 issues to check out.

Of the books I read regularly, only six were coming out this week, which gives me the opportunity to find some new stuff here and there. Of course, I also bought four Superman collections on sale at Comixology – The Death of Superman, Funeral For a Friend, Reign of the Superman, and Return of Superman. I couldn’t pass up the deal at $5.99 each. Look for a post about these later.

For a complete list of this week’s releases, remember to check out the Previews website.

I’m purchasing all my books digitally through Comixology, but if you want to find your local comic shop, click here.

Let’s take a look at what’s in store for me this week:

AfterShock Comics

Rough Riders Nation 1 – It’s like League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, only with 19th Century literary characters  being replaced by great Americans brought together by Teddy Roosevelt’s daughter. Too weird a concept to pass up!

Archie Comics

Riverdale 0 – A primer for the new TV show that maybe should have come out a month ago…

Dark Horse Comics

The Once and Future Queen 1 – The creators of Amelia Cole kick off some Arthurian adventures with a gender swap. 

DC Comics – Rebirth:

Batman 18
Green Arrow 18
Nightwing 16
Superman 18 – Superman Reborn kicks off here, a crossover between the Super-books to answer the questions kicked off since Rebirth. I am VERY excited for this. 

DC Comics – Other:

The Flintstones 9
Shade, the Changing Girl 6

Image Comics

Royal City 1 – A new book from Jeff Lemire means a new book I am picking up because Jeff Lemire is awesome. 

Sounds like a fun week of comics reading! What were you buying this week? Sound off in the comics or let us know on Twitter!
