Phillip Kennedy Johnson has always wanted to write Superman ever since he watched Joe Donner’s original Superman film, and he will now get his opportunity as the new writer on Superman and Action Comics starting this March.
With all of the Batman anthologies currently on the stands and in the works, Superman was feeling a little blue…Red and Blue that is!
This week’s picks include the end of a Superman era, the return of the Black Cat and Taarna, and sequels to two fan-favorite and critical hits, one based on Blade Runner and the other based in the foundations of the original super hero.
DC Comics ambitious event called Future State will put all current DC titles on hold and introduce a whole new take on many of DC’s classic heroes.
This week’s picks include a perfect stocking stuffer from Dark Horse Comics (but please don’t actually put it in one), the debut of a new villain-lead series from Marvel, and three perennial DC heroes, including one that will sadly fly into the sunset (for the time being).
This week we highlight series featuring the original super hero, a revitalized X-Universe, the end of a cosmic conflict, and the return of two perennial favorites, one inspired by Japanese folklore and manga and one taken directly from the pop culture zeitgeist of the Land of the Rising Sun.
