Each and every week, I, “What did you get at NYCC?” Henchman21, and “Con Crud!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of October 16, 2013. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
I don’t know about you, but I’m still a little warn out from New York Comic-Con, so it’s a bit of a short list this week, with just a couple of new hardcovers for you. But what we lack in quantity, we make up for in quality with two can’t-miss books and one title that the Empress has been waiting for since the summer. And if you’re looking for the hot new single issues out this week, there’s a new issue of Hawkeye, Invincible, Morning Glories, The Sixth Gun, and Batman/Superman to keep you entertained. Now if you don’t mind, we’re going to go take a nap while you enjoy this week’s GoD List!
Greg Pak is no stranger to comics, writing a whole swath of them for Marvel, including such modern favorites as Planet Hulk and Incredible Hercules. The much beloved writer has jumped the aisle and is now writing for DC Comics and his first series has been announced. As first announced at USA Today’s website, Pak will be working on the new volume of Batman/Superman along with artist Jae Lee. The series launches in June 2013.
The series will be set in the early days of DC’s New 52 universe, back when Batman didn’t have anyone backing him up, and back when Superman was running around in jeans and a t-shirt. The first story will feature the pair fighting a powerful threat as well as each other. From the sound of things, this will not be the buddy-buddy Batman and Superman relationship that readers may be used to.
