Who knew a book about Jim Gordon hunting down the Clown Prince of Crime would be something I looked forward to so much?
After the second issue came out, I boldly declared that The Joker was MY NEW FAVORITE comic book, as James Tynion IV is telling a fun story so far that could easily become compelling. The third issue of the comic, which came out this week, promises a face-to-face meeting between Gordon and the Joker, which should bring an interesting perspective to the young series.
The publisher is also offering up the first issue of Chip Zdarsky’s Justice League: Last Ride, with a fractured League being forced to reform.
Outside of my DC Comics haul, we have the latest issue of BOOM! Studios’ Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They’re calling issue 25 an anniversary issue, which seems a bit much, but not a whole lot of books survive that long any more, I suppose. The solicitation copy calls this “the biggest Buffy story of the Century,” and given how LAST ISSUE ended with the Scooby gang landing in the middle of the TV series’ BAND CANDY episode, it feels like there’s little hyperbole there.
As always, I’m buying my comics digitally, through Comixology. Most of the week’s new books are listed over at the PreviewsWorld website, though DC Comics’ new releases can be found on their own website. Let’s take a look at what I’ll be reading this week.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer 25
The Dreaming: Waking Hours 10
The Joker 3
Justice League: Last Ride 1
Wonder Woman 772
Mad Cave Studios
Beyond am exciting list of comics, we continue our rankings of WWE Pea-Per-Views (because their on the Peacock streaming app now) with WrestleMania Backlash on Sunday. And early next week, we have new episodes of both LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and the returning SUPERMAN & LOIS to look forward to! And don’t forget about the next SONG OF THE WEEK installment! Plenty of stuff to look forward to this Geek Week!
What are you looking forward to this week? Let us know in the comments!
