SOLICITATION: Throughout the 1970s, Barbara Gordon, a.k.a. Batgirl, was one of DC’s most popular heroes. Now, the adventures of Gotham City’s greatest heroine are collected in an oversized omnibus collection, BATGIRL: THE BRONZE AGE OMNIBUS VOL. 1! This massive title features numerous appearances by Batman and Robin and collects DETECTIVE COMICS #359, #363, #369, #371, #384-385, #388-389, #392-393, #396-397, #400-401, #404-424, #481-499, #501-502, #505-506, #508-510, #512-519, BATMAN #197 and BATMAN FAMILY #1, #3-7 and #9-11.

MATTHEW: For a time, she was DC’s highest-profile female hero, and frankly, she has never gotten the consideration and respect she deserves among the Bat-family or the greater DCU. Hopefully, this collection (perfect for your Matthew holiday giving!) can change that, especially since it contains her stint as Congresswoman Gordon!

Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack #4BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA OLD MAN JACK #4
Writer: John Carpenter, Anthony Burch
Artist: Jorge Corona
Publisher: BOOM! Studios
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Jack and Lo Pan follow Pete into the lair of the Demon of Vengeance, only to face a stunning betrayal!

STEPHEN: This is a weird twist on a beloved property, and as crazy as it is, I can’t stop reading issue after issue. Definitely, something I look forward to each month.

 

HELLBOY KRAMPUSNACHT #1
Writer: Mike Mignola
Artist: Adam Hughes
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: The only thing more exciting than pitting Hellboy against this Satanic spin on Santa is the team-up of Mike Mignola and Adam Hughes.

MATTHEW: While I’m not the Hellboy fan (or Mignola fan ((or Hughes fan (((HELP! I’M TRAPPED IN TRIPLE PARENTHESES!)))))) that Stephen is, I’m looking forward to this book’s take on the dark side of the Yule traditions. With luck, this will be a new holiday classic! If not, it’ll at least be a good read…

STEPHEN: It may be a few weeks late in terms of the true Krampusnacht, but still it feels like I have received the greatest gift in the form of Mike Mignola and Adam Hughes teaming for a spooky Hellboy tale.

INVINCIBLE #143
Writer: Robert Kirkman
Artist: Ryan Ottley
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: “THE END OF ALL THINGS,” Part 11
This is the one where Mark Grayson learns he has a son he didn’t know about. But the good news is…that son is AWESOME! Holy crap! One more issue after this until the end. We’re as sad as you are.

STEPHEN: It is all coming to an end! What will happen!? Say what you will about where this book went in the past, Kirkman and Ottley are bringing this to a close in exactly the way they should. January is going to be brutal when the final issue arrives.

MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #1
Writer: Chip Zdarsky
Artist: Jim Cheung
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: THE FOUR ARE NO MORE, SO TWO MUST DO! Something is very wrong with THE HUMAN TORCH and only THE THING can help him! It’s the Marvel Universe reunion you’ve all been waiting for (well, HALF of it, at least!). Plus: What monumental secret has DOOM been hiding since the end of SECRET WARS, and how will it completely change the lives of Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm?

MATTHEW: Is the terrible exile of the Fantastic Four finally over? I don’t know, but with this creative team reuniting Johnny and Ben, I’m happy with having this as our substitute.
