It’s a quirky little fifth Wednesday this week with some really off the wall stuff.
Here’s the featured new releases for Wednesday, March 29th, 2017.
DC does not have regularly shipping books when a fifth Wednesday happens in a month, so they have to fill the week with cool one shots and non-regular series. Somehow it all came together into a really stellar week.
Let’s begin with four one shot specials spotlighting the first team ups between DC and the new Hanna Barbera characters. Each one also has a back up story modernizing a classic Hanna character.
Suicide Squad and The Banana Splits with a side of Snagglepuss.
The Splits get mistaken for criminals and locked up in Belle Reve!
Green Lantern and Space Ghost with a Ruff and Reddy chaser.
Expect the boys to be stripped of their weapons as well as exchanging them with each other!
Adam Strange and the Future Quest team with a Top Cat/Batman team up.
Future Quest if the coolest and I’ll always love Adam’s Strange. Yes, I did say Top Cat/Batman too.
Time Travelin’ with Booster Gold and the Flintstones, plus you get to see the modernized Jetsons!.
If that’s not enough, we’ve got Lobo guest starring in a stand alone issue of Harley’s Little Black Book with art by SIMON BISLEY.
Simon Bisley is the man who defined the character in the 80’s and 90’s, and it’s been forever since he’s revisited the character.
You still have time to hop on board the Kamandi Challenge! Issue #3 comes out this week with full artwork by AMANDA CONNER!
This tribute to Jack Kirby series is a must read this year. I even ordered more copies of the sold out issues #1 and #2 from a shop in New Hampshire so everyone could catch up. There’s even an issue coming up written by Tom King with art by Kevin Eastman!
Inhumans Verse X-Men is over, and this week we get a glimpse into the direction both teams are headed with two new one shots.
X-Men Prime #1 features the return of Kitty Pryde to a leadership position, and lays out the two new teams, X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold. (Yup, a call back to the 90’s.)
Inhumans Prime #1 will wrap up some plot threads before launching into Royals next month and Secret Warriors in May.
Last Saturday we invited the girls from Black Girl in Cle out to check out our shop.
We noticed a recent trend in strong Black Female Characters and thought it would be a good opportunity to present them with copies of Riri Williams Iron Heart, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Image’s Motor Crush and Action Lab’s Fight Like a Girl for them to review.
They’ve posted a review of their visit here <https://www.blackgirlincle.
Oh hey, there’s a new Spider-Man Homecoming Trailer!
As well as an official Justice League Trailer:
Summer can’t come soon enough, but first we’ve got www.freecomicbookday.com to get through!
