In this feature I’ll highlight the upcoming comics that I’m looking forward to the most:
The Flash #15
“Flash forward in time as Barry Allen goes to extreme measures to defeat Grodd! Barry uses the Speed Mind to glimpse the future, and things are not looking good for him and the Rogues. And that’s before things get much, much worse!” If that solicitation doesn’t pique your interest I don’t know what will. I’m a sucker for all things time travel so I may be a little biased in that proclamation.
Justice League Dark #15
The Justice League Dark are off to rescue Zatanna and Tim Hunter after their shocking disappearance at the end of the Annual. Supposedly they’re in a “technologically advanced dimension where magic is outlawed and magic users are hunted and executed” and tthe JLD only have 48 hours to save them or be trapped there themselves forever. JLD has been consistently good since Lemire took over and the premise of this new arc has me excited.
New Avengers #1
Hickman has been nailing it so far on Avengers and now it is time for his New Avengers run to begin. The team line-up is simply brilliant featuring Black Panther, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Mr. Fantastic, Namor, and Beast. Their first epic mission is to “prevent the collision of our universe with another” as they stand against “an infinite legion of parallel realities”. The premise has me stoked and with Hickman on board you are guaranteed a great read.
In order to stop H’El, Superman has to turn to his arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor. Yes, a Superman/Luthor team-up. Will Lex accept? What will Superman have to agree to in order to secure Lex’s services? The crossover has been hit and miss so far but with the inclusion of Luthor and more excellent art from Rocafort, this is shaping up to be one enjoyable issue.
Teen Titans #15
It’s time for another “Death of the Family” tie-in. Not only is the Joker guest-starring but Red Hood, Arsenal, Starfire, and Batgirl are as well. The cover looks fabulous and if properly executed this could be a worthy addition to the crossover event. Don’t let me down!
