Post-Crisis Comic Book Previews for 10/01/08

There's only four comics on my pull list this week. I'm at a loss of words to describe this empty feeling. No, I'm not cutting back on my spending or comic book purchases. There really are only four comics from my regular list of books and random event titles I frequent that are coming out this week. In fact, there are no Marvel titles on my list either. I couldn't believe that with how many books they put out, there wasn't a single one I wanted coming out this week.

Anyways, I'll let you guys check out the rather brisk set of previews after the jump. If there's something I missed or that Diamond did not have listed, let me know and I'll try and check it out since there's nothing else to spend my money on this week.

Before hitting the jump, don't forget to check out the Final Crisis Second Opinion Comic Book Reviews for last week from fellow reader, Justin Miousse. They were posted earlier and I know some people just check the first post for updates, so don't miss out on those either!

It's "Batman R.I.P." part 5 – and this issue features two events so monumental that one comic can barely contain them! First, Batman faces off against The Club of Villains. Then, The Joker makes his stand, challenging the Dark Knight to the ultimate battle of wits. Will Batman survive either of these threats – or could this be the end of Gotham City's greatest hero?

Kirk Says: I've been hard on Batman RIP and I think my complaints are justified, but, after all the delays, I find myself actually looking forward to seeing the conclusion to this storyline. Go figure.

A few issues back, Titan tricked Invincible into helping him take over Machine Head’s arm of the criminal organization knows as THE ORDER — and Invincible is not too happy about being tricked.

Kirk Says: Invincible has been at the top of its game lately and it's nice to see it back on its monthly schedule again.

Kate uses the Fed's own weapons against them, and Manhunter does the same to the DCU's biggest heroes. And the most shocking secret of Ciudad Juarez is revealed!

Kirk Says: That's one creepy looking cover. Manhunter is a great book and you should feel bad for not buying it. Grab a trade or jump in with this storyline. You won't regret it.

A "Batman R.I.P." tie-in! With Batman missing in action, Nightwing faces off against The Dark Knight's most dangerous enemies – Killer Croc, Penguin, Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, Two-Face and The Joker – to save the life of a woman marked for death.

Kirk Says: I wouldn't call this storyline a Batman RIP tie-in. It's as much a tie-in as the rest of the vaguely related tie-ins have been - ie. one or two sentences mentioning Batman is "missing" and that's it.

Thankfully, Tomasi has been doing some good things with the book. I stress the good part of that last sentence. It's yet to make the leap to great or Must Read status, but it's definitely a solid read for fans of the character.

After last week's heavy load, this week is extremely light. I don't have any marvel pulls either (the biggest titles are Eternals, New Exiles, and Cable? Say Wuh?). I'm going to be reading Batman, Nightwing, and I think I'll start on Manhunter (I'll probably order the TPBs if these recent issues are good).

One issue that hasn't been mentioned is Supergirl 34, which was talked about alot at Baltimore Comic-Con. It's the start for the new creative team, which I'm looking forward to. Anyone else?

Invincible is the only book I'm going to buy this week.

Andrenn said...

Wow...only 2. I don't think I'm getting anything Marvel, outside of leftover books from last week.

More Invincible. Yay.

IslandLiberal said...

Just one title for me this week, Manhunter.

Kelson said...

I actually don't have anything coming out this week, but I skipped going to the store last week (I know, sacrilege) because there were only 2 books out and they were both books I was willing to wait for.

Haven't yet decided whether to pick them up today or just wait another week.

I have Batman and Jonah Hex and some stuff I missed last week. At least my wallet is thankful.
