Previewing Previews for April 2018 Catalogue

Hello everyone and welcome back to Previewing Previews! The April Catalogue has tons of cool stuff so let’s get into it.

Bendis is comics! Bendis is Coming! Gabbo is coming! Bendis is coming! With the coming of Action #1000, the next iteration of Superman will be written by Brian Michael Bendis, doing his first ever DC work. The Action and Superman titles will return after a six issue mini-series called Man of Steel. You want to be there for the beginning of the Bendis Superman run? You want to start with this Man of Steel series. Justice League is relaunching with Scott Synder and Jim Cheung with pretty much the animated series lineup. Batman is getting married, but it would be really boring if everyone just got along and nothing bad happened so there are VS-themed one shots to precede the occasion.

Marvel has lots of relaunches with new creative teams coming up real soon. The big ones are Thor #1, The Immortal Hulk #1, and Tony Stark Iron man #1, but Deadpool and Doctor Strange are getting new creative teams as well. All good jumping on points if you’re looking for one.

There are tons of upcoming indy books that look interesting. Mark Millar has a new book with superstar artist Oliver Coipel called The Magic Order.  If you’re into urban exploration (I am), take a look at By Night and Lost City Explorers. Mike Hammer and Nancy Drew are both getting dusted off for new series. Oh yeah, and there’s Vikings, Rosketships, and Pirates too! When’s the last time you can remember a pirate book on the stands? On the trade side, we have trade collections for Judas and Giants, both really great mini-series. Sienkiewicz fans will want to take a closer look at the upcoming Artifact edition. Planet of the Apes nuts (me) should check out the upcoming adaptation of Rod Serling’s original screenplay. Sullivan’s Sluggers is a rad James Stokoe book that has a really complicated Kickstarter story that has kept it on the fringe, but now everyone can check out this incredibly drawn baseball players vs monsters story.
See you at the bottom…
