NEW COMICS DAY Twitterama YOU Review Comics! 05/11


Can you feel it in the air? Comic book event season is in full swing, with two issues of Fear Itself out in the world and Flashpoint making its debut in comic book stores today. The latter is among the many releases on this New Comic Book Day, and for previews including an exclusive look at 12 Gauge's Magus #4, head over here.

For one of the Internet's snappiest takes on the week's new releases, get yourself over to Blog@Newsarama and soak in the J. Caleb Mozzocco-ness of it all in ‘Twas the Night Before Wednesday…. This time around, he looks at everything from Fear Itself: Youth In Revolt #1 to the Joe Kubert graphic novel Jew Gangster.

Yes, Flashpoint #1 is getting all the headlines this week from DC Comics, but it's not the only book the publisher is premiering. The Paul Dini-written video game tie-in Batman: Arkham City #1 also hits this week, the first of a five-issue miniseries. DC also wraps up The Flash (for now) with issue #12.

Over Marvel way, the always-busy Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning move over to the X-side of things and start a co-writing stint with New Mutants #25. For fans of the meticulous work of Jonathan Hickman, FF #3 is out, plus things wrap up for Matt Murdock's small-town adventure with Daredevil Reborn #4.

John Layman and Rob Guillory skip forward a few months with Chew #27, and it's a big week for Image in general with the launch of Moriarty #1, and Top Cow's Netherworld #1. Dynamite's putting out Lone Ranger #25, along with a strikingly stark, mostly black cover.
