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.
Let’s take a look at what’s in store for me this week:
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!
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:
Green Arrow 18
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
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!
