Y’all know me. Know how I earn a livin’. I’ll catch this bird for you, but it ain’t gonna be easy. Bad comic. Not like going down the pond chasin’ bluegills and tommycods. This comic, swallow you whole. Little shakin’, little tenderizin’, an’ down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that’ll bring back your tourists, put all your businesses on a payin’ basis. But it’s not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I’ll find him for three, but I’ll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you’ve gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don’t want no volunteers, I don’t want no mates, there’s just too many captains on this island. $10,000 for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn comic.

Hulk: Season One

By Fred Van Lente, Tom Fowler, & Jordie Bellaire

This? This is a hell of a team. The fact is, I don’t care what’s on that cover, with this team, I’m buying the book. Ask any cartoonist worth their salt out there, and they’ll tell you that Tom Fowler draws his face off on every page. Folks who follow the Weekly Sketch Up know that. Van Lente? He’ll put in the goods every time, and Bellaire always makes it look better than it was. Jeff Parker and Gabe Hardman showed me that I don’t hate The Hulk, and these folks should be backing it up.

Revival #2

By Tim Seeley & Mike Norton

There’s a long legacy of comics coming out and bursting on the scene and folks scrambling to catch up.  With just the second issue, Revival is shaping up to be one of those titles. With it’s eerie northern vibe and some of the best art from Mike Norton we’ve seen ever, you’re definitely going to want to say you were on the Revival train from the beginning.

DC Universe Presents #12

By Fabian Nicieza, Jorge Jimenez, Guy Major, & Dezi Sienty

I want this anthology to survive so much I can taste it. Back in the old days, anthologies were ways that readers were introduced to either new characters or were exposed to characters they wouldn’t normally read about. These days, the superhero anthology isn’t all that popular and that’s sad because while the first two stories in this series weren’t that strong (admittedly, that’s a big problem for a new series) the last story featuring a serial killer Vandal Savage written by James Robinson was fantastic. And now we’ve got a Kid Flash story by Fabian Nicieza who has done nothing but great work for DC in recent years. Also, that Ryan Sook cover is awesome.


  1. I got a great Tom Fowler sketch of Hawkeye so I agree that he can bring it.

  2. Looking forward to Hulk:Season One!

  3. The preview pages for the Hulk book looked fantastic. It’s on my list of things to check out for sure.

  4. If that DCU Presents is a one-shot, I might pick it up. I would love a capes ‘n’ cowls anthology series if they were all one or two issue stories. But after a five or six issue arc, I’ve forgotten that the book is an anthology.

  5. Sooooo excited for Kid Flash. Between this and the upcoming Black Lightning/Blue Devil story, I think there’s a chance for this book, yet!

  6. The preview pages for Kid Flash look sooooo good, and really well written to boot. Why can’t we get more books like this please?

  7. I had totally missed the fact that DCU Presents is about Kid Flash this month. I may pick up the Savage three-issue arc on the cheap sometime soon if it really is that good. I want this to survive as well, but I wasn’t interested in Deadman, and I didn’t enjoy the Challengers of the Unknown story–at least not the first two issues of it, which are the only ones I read.

  8. I’m getting DC Universe Presents #12 because of the sort of tie-in to Teen Titans. Also I didn’t know the last story in DCU Presents was written by James Robinson. I might buy those issues digitally and read them.

  9. It slipped by me that James Robinson did a Vandal Savage serial killer story in DCU Presents as well, gonna have to g back and get those and I like KId Flash solo adventures and never read much Teen Titans but love the Young Justice animated series so might have to check that out as well, just wish Sook did the interior as well.

    • So technically DC is gonna run two anthology based titles? DCU Presents and National Comics Presents? Personally I hope they both last and bring back Brave and the Bold as well,and I know its been said before but these are the pages in which many characters get or got they’re start and love the idea of keeping that classic comic nostalgia alive for new generations of readers and old alike. I’m 33 and know this from research and years of collecting off and on but new readers might wanna or need to hear it once in awhile to put a little history behind they’re hobby/passion or read em and throw em in the garbage habit.

  10. One of the reasons why I read the solics. for series I don’t usually get. You don’t never know what gem you might overlook.

  11. No thanks on the Marvel book (or any Marvel book for me until their whole line goes back to 2.99 – which I am neither hoping for or expecting), but Revival #1 was fantastic, and the Kid Flash solo book looks fun. 2 outta 3 ain’t bad!
