NEW COMICS DAY Twitterama YOU Review Comics! 04/13


Exploratory committees are being announced nearly daily by prospective presidential candidates, but while some people are looking towards November 2012, we're focusing on the here and now — specifically, another New Comic Book Day. For previews of this week's comics, including an exclusive look at IDW's Spike #7, head over here.

Every single week at Blog@Newsarama, the intrepid J. Caleb Mozzocco looks at the week's comic book releases in the column ‘Twas the Night Before Wednesday. This week, he's struck by (artistic) inspiration from Marvel's massive Thor by Walt Simonson omnibus, clocking in at right under 1200 pages.

The penultimate issue of DC's biweekly series Brightest Day contained a rather unexpected return, and this week brings the Maxwell Lord conflict closer to climax with the second-to-last issue of companion title Justice League Generation Lost, #23. Elsewhere at the publisher, the build towards Flashpoint continues with Flash #10.

It's a big week — well, big month in general — at Marvel for writer Kieron Gillen. This week, his run on the newly retitled Journey Into Mystery starts with #622, and he's also got Uncanny X-Men #535. Marvel's also got the Jonathan Hickman-penned one-shot Shield Infinity, plus X-Men: Legacy #257, the latest chapter of "Age of X."

Image Comics is putting out a big ol' hardcover anthology for Joe Madureira's '90s creator-owned title Battle Chasers, plus the final chapter of five-issue miniseries Kody Chamberlain's Sweets. While that's ending, Starborn #5 starts a new story arc for the BOOM! Studios Stan Lee-line title.

Thanks to the adroit Best Shots team, advance reviews of those last three releases can be found by right about here, but you know what this space is for — we want to hear from you!
