Okay, first off, if I have to try to convince you to buy a comic that contains eight premiere issues for a measly six bucks then I might just have to reassess what I am doing here.
I have reviewed any number of these titles at different times and I cannot even begin to stress to you how great of a deal this is. Dark Horse Comics continues to amaze me with their marketing strategies. I can think of no better way to test out some new comics than with this compilation. Folks, I present to you Dark Horse Number Ones!
Each and every week, I, “Man of Steel” Henchman21, and “Woman of Steel” 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 June 12, 2013. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
Who’s ready to see Man of Steel? I know I am, and just like always I’m going to get myself in the mood with some good old fashioned comic booking. There’s a ton to enjoy this week, including a new series featuring everyone’s favorite big blue boy scout. But that’s not all, so read on gentle reader, and see what else you’ll want to buy this week as we go faster than a speeding bullet into this week’s The GoD List!
Dark Horse has just released The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #1. This bizarrely fashioned post-apocalyptic superhero story is written by Gerard Way and Shaun Simon with art from Becky Cloonan. Check out my thoughts below:
Here’s what we know: The superhero team known as The Killjoys fought against Better Living Industries “” an evil mega-corporation shedding individuality from the citizens of Battery City. The Killjoys also protected a young girl whom they believed to be a messiah of sorts; however, The Killjoys were all killed and only the girl survived. Now, twelve years later, the Killjoys’ followers, The Ultra V’s “” a group of reckless, careless punk teenagers “” are in the midst of continuing the fight against the B.L.I. and anyone else who might get in their way. The nameless girl wanders the streets with her cat and a radio, avoiding danger at all costs. When she meets up with The Ultra V’s, she quickly learns that the term “superhero” does not have quite the same meaning as it used to and that the B.L.I. are on her trail.
