NEW COMICS DAY Twitterama YOU Review Comics! 06/08


It's another New Comic Book Day, but given the major DC news of the past week, we're going to do things slightly different this time around. Along with your reviews of this week's comics, we also want to hear your thoughts on all of the new titles and creatives teams announced by DC Comics! Feel free to tag those with #RamaRev as well, and let us know what books you're looking forward to, and the ones that you may not be quite as stoked about.

Previews of this week's comics? Those are here, including exclusive looks at comics like Magus #5 from 12 Gauge, DC's Flashpoint tie-in Booster Gold #45, and Image/Top Cow's Netherworld #2.

To get a picture of what's worthwhile (or at least somehow notable) among this week's new releases, set your GPS to Blog@Newsarama, specifically J. Caleb Mozzocco's ‘Twas the Night Before Wednesday… column. This time around, he's sharing some thoughts on such comics as Marvel's 15 Love #1 and Dark Horse's Empowered Special #2.

Last year, 1991's X-Men #1 was declared the best-selling comic book of all time by Guinness. Twenty years later, we're looking at X-Men: Legacy #250, which fittingly has Professor X and Magneto — stars of current box office No. 1 X-Men: First Class — on the cover. Elsewhere at Marvel, the Iron Age series starts with an Alpha issue.

You may have read a thing or two about DC lately here on this site, and the company is debuting four new three-issue Flashpoint tie-in miniseries this week: Citizen Cold, Deathstroke: The Curse of Ravager, Emperor Aquaman and Frankenstein: Creatures of Unknown. Vertigo's got Scalped #49 and Unwritten #26.

Image has plenty of new material, including Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma looking to continue their hot streak with Morning Glories #10. Love And Capes: Ever After #5 wraps up the Thomas F. Zahler-helmed IDW miniseries, and BOOM!'s kaboom imprint imports a European Star Wars parody titled Space Warped.

That wily Best Shots team has managed to sneak in advance reviews on the past three comics — plus American Vampire: Survival of the Fittest #1here, but here on Twitterama, we want to hear from you! So buy some comics through your legal means of choice, give them a thoughtful read, and then get on Twitter (Don't forget to follow us!), to deliver your 140-character-or-less thoughts on this week's releases — and the recent surge of DC announcements. Just add the hashtag:
