NEW COMICS DAY Twitterama YOU Review Comics! 02/23


It's going to take more than the long Presidents Day weekend to delay New Comic Book Day, happening this week as normally scheduled, on Wednesday. We've got all sorts of previews of this week's comics, including exclusive looks at IDW's Fallen Angel: Return of the Son #2 and Who is Jake Ellis? #2 from Image Comics — right here.

Up until very recently, Muppets interacting with Larfleeze seemed like just a beautiful dream — until this week's ‘Twas the Night Before Wednesday… column on Blog@Newsarama, where J. Caleb Mozzocco looks at both the collected edition of Muppet Sherlock Holmes and Action Comics #898, starring the lovably greedy Orange Lantern.

The trial of Bucky Barnes concludes in Captain America #615, promising big changes to the future of that comic. The alternative timeline story "Age of X" continues in both X-Men: Legacy #245 and New Mutants #22, plus the march towards "Death of Spider-Man" continues in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #154.

Over at DC Comics, American Vampire #12 is out (read an interview with series writer Scott Snyder here), along with fellow Vertigo titles Scalped #46 and New York Five #2. DC Universe-wise, a big cliffhanger — the fate of the Blue Beetle! — gets picked up on with Justice League: Generation Lost #20.

Of course, there's so much more: Morning Glories #7 starts a new story arc from writer Nick Spencer (who also has Iron Man 2.0 #1 out today) and artist Joe Eisma; Dynamite's got Queen Sonja #14 and Red 5 Comics releases a new Abyss #1.

The always game Best Shots crew has reviews of the last three comics — plus Who is Jake Ellis? #2 — right here, but, you know the drill by now, we want to hear from you! So get out to a shop, buy comics, read 'em, develop some cogent opinions and get on Twitter (Don't forget to follow us!), and let the world know your 140-character-or-less thoughts on this week's releases.
