NEW COMICS DAY Twitterama YOU Review Comics! 03/30


Here at Newsarama central, we're gearing up for another major comic book convention — this weekend's WonderCon in San Francisco — but before we can get to that, we've got New Comic Book Day. For preview's of this week's comics, including an exclusive look at the Nick Spencer-written Jimmy Olsen one-shot, head over here.

If you've ever had an uncontrollable desire to see J. Caleb Mozzocco draw Godzilla in a stereotypical king outfit, you're in luck (and you have very specific tastes): you can find that in this week's ‘Twas the Night Before Wednesday… on Blog@Newsarama, plus adroit commentary on this week's new releases.

It's a big year for Steve Rogers — Captain America is getting a feature film this summer, and he's celebrating his 70th anniversary in comic books this month, with the oversized Captain America #616 out this week, featuring contributions from regular series writer Ed Brubaker, plus Howard Chaykin, Ed McGuinness, and a whole lot more.

As far as DC goes, the penultimate chapter of "The Black Ring" unfolds in Action Comics #899, featuring a reunion of sorts between the famed Lex Luthor and Brainiac team. And if you're looking to catch up on that story, a hardcover for the first six issues of the Paul Cornell-written arc is out today, too.

In the creator-owned field, Joe Casey and Mike Huddleston's Butcher Baker, The Righteous Maker #1 debuts from Image Comics, following a rather extensive marketing campaign this past fall. Also, Avatar premieres Caligula #1 written by David Lapham; akin to peanut butter meeting jelly meeting bread.

The sharply tuned Best Shots crew has reviews of those last two comics — plus Detective Comics #875 here, but you know how this goes: We want to hear from you! So pick up some comics, read them closely, then 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. Just add the hashtag:


and it'll go into our stream right here! So share your thoughts, spread the word, and let's talk comics!
