IT’S NEW COMIC BOOK DAY! #NCBD

The best day of the week just got a lot better with a new round of awesome comics arriving in stores this week. Staff members at Major Spoilers are here to help you with your comic book selection this week, with their roundup of comics they recommend.

ALL-STAR BATMAN #5
Writer: Scott Snyder
Artist: John Romita Jr., Declan Shalvey

Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: “MY OWN WORST ENEMY” conclusion! Batman, Duke and Two-Face square off in a fight for Harvey Dent’s soul. With assassins flooding in from across the countryside, Batman learns that even his most trusted allies might choose evil over good.

WAYNE: What better way is there to wrap up 2016 than with the conclusion to a Scott Snyder Batman story! Yes!

BLUE BEETLE #4
Writer: Keith Giffen
Artist: Scott Kolins
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $2.99
SOLICITATION: The origin of Blue Beetle begins! Jaime relates the story of how he came to acquire the scarab on his back that grants him his powers and more is revealed about its magical foundation. Meanwhile, Ted Kord is tied up with a new arrival in El Paso—and wait till you see who it is!

STEPHEN: This issue gives us not one, not two, but THREE Blue Beetles! Of course not all of them may be alive by the end of the book, but if this is how we are getting the origin story, I’m all in for the ride. I just hope DC Comics doesn’t Hawkman this character…

DARK KNIGHT III MASTER RACE #7 of 8
Writer: Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello
Artist: Frank Miller, Andy Kubert, Klaus Janson
Publisher: DC Comics

Cover Price: $5.99
SOLICITATION: Batman and Superman are back together again-but is their reunion too late?

WAYNE: I know, it’s late – seems like every time Mr. Miller does a Batman book, it’s behind. But I think it’s going to be so worth it, though!

DETECTIVE COMICS #947

Artist: Raul Fernandez, Alvaro Martinez
Publisher: DC Comics

Cover Price: $2.99
SOLICITATION: “THE VICTIM SYNDICATE” conclusion! Has the First Victim succeeded in dividing and conquering Batman’s team? The final attack will come from someone they’d all put their faith in…

WAYNE: This big Bat-week features yet another wrap-up! Can’t wait to read it! Highly recommended!

SOLICITATION: The comic book industry comes together to honor those killed in Orlando this year. From IDW Publishing, with assistance from DC Entertainment, this oversize comic contains moving and heartfelt material from some of the greatest talents in comics – – mourning the victims, supporting the survivors, celebrating the LGBTQ community, and examining love in today’s world.

All material has been kindly donated, from the creative to the production, with ALL PROCEEDS going to the victims, survivors and their families via EQUALITY FLORIDA.

Be a part of an historic comics event! It doesn’t matter who you love. All that matters is that you love.

STEPHEN: If you buy one book this week, make it Love is Love. Great stories, great creators, and the money goes to a good cause. Pick it up!

SUPERGIRL: BEING SUPER #1
Writer: Mariko Tamaki
Artist: Joëlle Jones
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $5.99
SOLICITATION: Flying and crushing coal into diamonds may come easy, but try popping a Kryptonian zit! Caldecott Honor-winning and Eisner Award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer) teams with Eisner Award-nominated artist Joëlle Jones (Lady Killer) for a coming-of-age tale like you’ve never seen before. But while growing pains shake up Kara’s world, a deadly earthquake rocks the small town of Midvale beneath her feet! The Girl of Steel has a choice: let her world die, or overcome her adolescent insecurities and be super!

STEPHEN: This is a great “out of continuity” tales of Supergirl. Note they aren’t calling this an Elseworlds title, but it sure does feel like it. I love the depiction of all of the characters that appear in the book, and I can’t wait to see a big bad reveal that will push Kara to being Supergirl.
