NEW COMICS DAY Twitterama YOU Review Comics! 03/02


Do try and tear yourself away from fantasizing about the iPad 2 — because there's tons of stuff out today on your regularly scheduled New Comic Book Day! Previews of this week's comics? Why, of course, check 'em out here, including an exclusive look at Batman Confidential #54, the last issue of that series.

A little something like illness won't keep J. Caleb Mozzocco down — well, not for long anyway. He's got a slightly delayed look at this week's comics in the form of his regular Blog@Newsarama column ‘Twas the Night Before Wednesday…, talking about Wolverine/Hercules: Myths, Monsters and Mutants #1 among other releases.

Axe Cop — the webcomic by brothers Ethan and Malachai Nicolle, currently 30 and 6-years-old, respectively — has been an international sensation for more than a year now, and this week the strip makes its comic book debut in the form of Dark Horse's Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth #1. (Our interview with the brothers is here.)

Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming have two releases this week through Marvel's creator-owned Icon line, that being the all-ages original graphic novel Takio, and Powers #7, the first new issue of that series in a few months. Wade Wilson gets his Point One issue in Deadpool #33.1.

Over DC Comics way, biweekly series Brightest Day nears its end with issue #21, and the First Wave miniseries — bringing together several pulp heroes — wraps with #6. Vertigo's got two books from DC Universe creators — Jeff Lemire's Sweet Tooth #19, and Grant Morrison's Joe the Barbarian #8.

Elsewhere in the comicsphere, we've got an annual from the popular Darkwing Duck series from BOOM! Studios, a new issue of Image's ever-buzzworthy Chew (#17 of that series), and the Atlas Comics revival starts with the Steve Niles-written Wulf #1.

The cunning and cogent Best Shots crew has reviews of the last three comics — plus Dean Koontz's Frankenstein #4 — right here, but as you surely know by now, we want to hear from you! So make your way to a comic book store, buy some stuff, read, form some salient 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.
