Tomorrow, Wednesday, is New Comics Day.
So here is a list no one asked for!
Tomb Raider #2:
"Lara Croft and her friends are experiencing horrific visions in the aftermath of their ordeal in the lost kingdom of Yamatai. But those visions herald a darker fate than they could have imagined!"
"Catwoman is tired of slumming it, so she's making her bid for high society. There, she'll find her greatest challenge yet: proving herself the best thief in the world! "The Race of Outlaws" starts here!"
Written by Ann Nocenti. For some reason, until recently, I thought she was retired. o_O
Worlds Finest #21
"The "First Contact" crossover with BATMAN/SUPERMAN reaches its conclusion as Kaizan Gamorra unleashes a plot to depower Power Girl and unlock the secrets of Superman of Earth 2!"
Legends of Red Sonja #5
"FINAL ISSUE!!! The epic mini-series featuring all-star creators concludes! This prestigious series, celebrating the She-Devil's 40th anniversary goes out with a bang, including stories written by Gail (Batgirl) Simone, Blair (Attack of the Show, Heart) Butler, and Kelly Sue (Pretty Deadly) DeConnick, with gorgeous art by Jack Jadson, Valentine, and Jim (Secret Six) Calafiore. Sonja makes her final showdown against the brutal and deadly Grey Riders!"
All New Ghost Rider #1:
"A street race leads a young man on the FAST and FURIOUS road of destiny. Amid an East Los Angeles neighborhood running wild with gang violence and drug trafficking, a war brews in the criminal underworld! With four on the floor, Marvel's newest GHOST RIDER puts vengeance in overdrive!!!"
Avengers Assemble #25:
"ALL-OUT WAR IN NEW YORK CITY!
• The demented Dr. June Covington has taken on A.I.M., and is winning. The Avengers are caught in the middle of this Mad Science War! • But, now, this situation is more important — because there's a second Terrigen cocoon in New York, ticking like a time bomb, about to go off, Covington wants it and A.I.M. has it.
• SPIDER-GIRL, who has been mentored by the Avengers in her search for her teacher, abducted by Covington for Nefarious Genetic Purposes, now leads the charge, as the Avengers Assemble to end this conflict before the Terrigen cocoon explodes and New York is doooooomed."
"MEANWHILE IN LOS ANGELES: Who is Kate's mystery friend in the cat food aisle and why is he so darn helpful all the time? How close is Madame Masque to extracting her revenge? WHAT IF there was a connection between the Cat Food Man AND Madame Masque AND Kate? How many index cards will America's Favorite New Young Girl Hero-slash-Private-Eye need to crack THIS case? Like seven? Eight."
I wonder how many people were pissed about the last issue.
Iron Patriot #1:
Jim Rhodes has quit the SECRET AVENGERS!!! As the IRON PATRIOT, he's bringing his fight against the bad guys to the home front. But a new villain emerges with a brutal plan that could turn Iron Patriot into America's most wanted!!!
Also, there is a petition for Marvel to cast an Asian American actor as Danny Rand, Iron Fist. Here is a thing about it:
Honestly, I agree with him. I've always liked Danny Rand/Iron Fist but had major problems with his backstory. Brubaker and Fraction at least changed it enough so it wasn't so screwy, but yeah... Anyway, sign if you like.
Ms. Marvel #2 seems to be selling well digitally. I hope this bodes well for the print version as well.
I saw the other day that a young Selina Kyle was cast on Gotham, which is the upcoming show that's basically "Jim Gordon: The Early Years".
