The GoD List: Comics for April 28, 2011
  |  

Each week, MK2Fac3 and Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull list, grab some issues and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of April 28, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

ISSUES

Batman, Incorporated #5 (DC Comics – $2.99): I know I say this a lot, but every week that Batman, Incorporated comes out is a week that I will list Batman, Incorporated as my top pick of the week. It’s an addiction, truly it is. I’ve read Grant Morrison’s Batman run multiple times, and the new addition keeps me salivating for more clues on the future for The Dark Knight. Each issue, is a romp through camp, complexity, and insanity, while giving nods to all eras of The Caped Crusader by showing us the Batmen of all nations. Yannick Paquette returns to the title to show us a tale of the other British Batman, and I could not be more excited. Each issue is a blast, and each issue is my favorite issue of the series. Yes, if you’re wondering, I’m both a Morrison and Batman fanboy. And this book makes me proud to be one.

Very First Superman Comic Book Saves Family From Losing Their House
  |  

Well if anyone said that a comic book wasn’t good for anything else but reading, they were wrong. A family whose house was being foreclosed found an issue of Action Comics #1 in a box as they were packing up their things. Everyone knows that Action Comics #1 is the ‘holy grail’ of comic books. This was the book that first introduced the world to Superman and its cover is very significant and will be known and recognized forever.

The house had been in the family since the 1950s when the issue was put in the box by the wife’s father. They contacted Stephen Fishler who co-owns Comic Connect and Metropolis Collectibles in New York City. Fishler was hesitant at first because a lot of people that come to him with Action Comics #1 usually have reprints that have no real selling value. But the family was smart and sent a picture message to him and he realized that this issue in fact was the real thing.

Death Is Coming to ‘Action Comics’ This Fall
  |  @   |  

By Jedi of Doom

Comic book fans will be surprised this October with the release of Action Comics #894.

The issue will have a guest appearance by the character Death from Neil Gaiman‘s beloved Vertigo comic book series Sandman.

According to DC Comics, Action Comics writer Paul Cornell thought of the idea himself to bring Death into the issue and then got approval by Gaiman, who he said has been supportive of bringing Death and Lex Luthor face to face. This big move is part of a huge story arc for Action Comics where Lex Luthor will not only go against people he is used to, but other characters he has never met before.

DC had very limited information about the storyline, but they did reassure that way they use Death “will be true to the spirit of what has gone before.”
