Hey Towelites! It’s New Comic Book Day and there’s a slew of new funny books hitting shelves. What’s on the top of your stack this week? Here are my pulls! 

Jim Henson’s Beneath The Dark Crystal #11 (Of 12) (BOOM!) Adam Smith, Alexandria Huntington, Benjamin Dewey

It’s almost August and that means we are about to be gifted a brand new Dark Crystal adventure on Netflix! Until then you can explore the other stories thanks to BOOM! comics. This series is nearing its end, have you enjoyed it?

 

Black Hammer / Justice League: Hammer Of Justice! #1 (DC) Jeff Lemire, Michael Walsh, te Piekos, Dave Stewart

The crossover of the summer is here! Jeff Lemire crosses his Black Hammer universe over into DC territory when the Justice League comes to town! Can’t wait to read this one! 

Batman #74 (Cover B Juan Gimenez) (DC) Tom King, Mikel Janin, Juan Gimenez

City of Bane continues! Only 10 or so more issue from Tom King’s magnificent run left, how is he going to leave our Dark Knight?

 

Batman Universe #1 (Of 6) (DC) Brian Michael Bendis, Nick Derington

HAHA Walmart! I never had to spend any of my money at your soul-sucking place of business, even though I wanted to when DC was releasing their “exclusive” Giant-sized books there. Now I can read my Bendis Batman without feeling too guilty. 

 

Event Leviathan #2 (Of 6) (DC) Brian Michael Bendis, Alex Maleev

The event of the summer rolls on and the mystery of Leviathan gets TOO real for our heroes. Welcome to the new status quo for the DC Universe! 

 

Flash #74 (Cover B Evan Doc Shaner) (DC) Joshua Williamson, Howard Porter

Flash Year One continues! Will Barry be able to defeat the Turtle? Find out as Williamson rewrites the Flash’s history! 

 

Hawkman #14 (Cover B Bill Sienkiewicz Card Stock Variant) (DC) Robert Venditti, Will Conrad, Bill Sienkiewicz, Pat Olliffe, Tom Palmer

Can I say that if DC cancels this book, and I’m sure they will, I’ll be upset. Anyways, if you aren’t reading Hawkman you probably should be.

 

Naomi #6 (DC) Brian Michael Bendis, Jamal Campbell, David F. Walker

Season 1 has come to a close for our newest DC hero. This book has been hot and I am happy that I was able to score first prints since the start of the run. If you missed it your best bet will be a trade when it hits stands later this year, or maybe sooner…

 

Unearth #1 (Image) Cullen Bunn, Baldemar Rivas, Kyle Strahm

The latest creepshow from Image Comics is here and Cullen Bunn is at his best. 

 

Invisible Woman #1 (Of 5) (Marvel) Mark Waid, Mattia De Iulis, Adam Hughes

Casey just met Mark Waid the other day at the Syracuse comic con, very cool! You all know I’m a sucker for the F4 so I’ll be checking out this title one way or the other.

 

Wolverine Vs Blade Special #1 (Marvel) Marc Guggenheim, Dave Wilkins

When it rains it pours and now that Blade is back in the limelight we will be seeing more of him. Like this title which doesn’t need to make any sense, you just need to buy it because it features everyone’s favorite Day Walker teaming up/fighting with Wolverine. Nuff said.

Star Wars Age Of Resistance Captain Phasma #1 (Marvel) Tom Taylor, Leonard Kirk, Phil Noto

If you haven’t read the Phasma novel, do it. Do it now. The most underappreciated character in the Star Wars universe is back with a special Age of Resistance one-shot by Tom Taylor who has been killing it for DC. 

 

Fallen World #3 (Of 5) (Valiant) Dan Abnett, Adam Pollina, Brett Booth

Last but not least, Fallen World continues today with issue 3 and I have not had the opportunity to read it as I usually do. All I’m going to say is I can’t wait to see where this story is headed! 

 

See you next week!
