Light Week? Try Guarding The Globe #1, Science Dog #1, and Superman/Batman #75

Let's face it. It's rare that we have a light week, but what if.. just what if that turns out to be the case?  What if the quantity is rich but the quality, the content, the meat, the stuff of love is light and unsatisfying?  That, my friends, is what we are here for.  Our recommendations will fulfill you, if only for the 10 minutes you're reading.  But you… you'll remember. Oh yes, you will.

Guarding The Globe #1

Guarding The Globe #1

By Robert Kirkman, Benito Cereno & Ransom Getty

You know, I have to admit it took this long to get a team book, with the characters as introduced in the pages of Invincible by Robert Kirkman, published.  It seems as if every time the "JLA-esque" team popped up in Invincible, I thought that it would be cool to see a book with these characters.  Well finally, my wishes have come true.  It may not be the original name Kirkman intended, and he may be just co-writing the book, but I'm sure as hell going to give Guarding the Globe #1 a shot, if nothing for the artist's name…Ransom Getty.  Now that's a name.

Science Dog #1

By Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker

What if you missed out on Science Dog? What if you were an Invincible trade reader, and you just didn't even know what it was.  What if Kirkman did a fun little story about a wonderfully designed character named Science Dog drawn by Cory Walker?  What if this whole story was drawn by Cory Walker and you never read it?  It would be pretty sad is what it would be.  I think this is a first where a creator has 2 books in Light Week, but who am I to deny the man his 79th moment in the sun.  However, keep in mind that if you did buy the 25th and 50th issues of Invincible, you already have this.  I don't want to hear any complaining later, got it?  But if not, did I mention Science Dog?!

Superman/Batman #75

By Paul Levitz, Jerry Ordway, Rafael Albuquerque, Brian Azzarello, Lee Bermejo, Shane Davis, David Finch, Michael Green, Gene Ha, Adam Hughes, Mike Johnson, Joe Kelly, Teddy Kristansen, J.T. Krul, Francis Manapul, Duncan Rouleau, Steven Seagle, Thompson, Peter J. Tomasi & Billy Tucci

This 56 page special that chonicles tales of Superman and Batman from the past to the future has just about everybody working on it.


  1. Superman has one freaky-lookin’ neck.

  2. Jesus, George Lucas’ evil neck-fluence is everywhere!

  3. @jackietam why do you think Batman is looking so intently at him.

  4. Thats because it’s not Superman, it’s Supermand!! 

  5. You people are ruthless.

  6. WTF?! Batman is looking at that freaking loooong neck! LOL

  7. Another issue for a light week would be:

    Punisher MAX: Happy Endings by Charlie Huston and Juan Jose Ryp.

    If you like what you saw in the new Wolverine preview yesterday then you’ll love this one shot. Ryp has a reputation of being an extremely violent, but very detailed artist. Works perfectly for a Punisher comic.

  8. My store isn’t  getting science Dog and I was so excited for it! I read Invincible in trade though, and I feel like this might be in a trade eventually, maybe.

  9. Could they fit a few more names on that Superman/Batman cover?

  10. Is that letter-play on the "G" with the arrow purposely meant to look like the Avengers "A?"  Don’t read too much Image, so I’m not sure if this has been mentioned already.

  11. @Ryn, my store isn’t getting it either, but hopefully they’ll get it eventually.

  12. Maybe this will finally be when Batman and Superman just kiss and get it over with. This "Will they? Won’t they?" thing they have been doing for the past 75 issues is getting old.

  13. Wait, Science Dog isn’t real!

  14. that is the creepiest Quitely art i have ever seen…may need to shoot the "over" colourist.
