On The Radar: Comic Book Coming Attractions 06/12/13

Radar

In this feature I’ll highlight the upcoming comics that I’m looking forward to the most, the ones that are On My Radar:

Batman #21
Batman #21
Creative Team
Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo
Solicitation
“Witness The New 52 origin of The Dark Knight in BATMAN: ZERO YEAR! Twists and turns are around every corner as Bruce Wayne takes the final steps toward his destiny! And in the backup story, learn more about how different Gotham City was at this dangerous point in time.”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
This is it! From the team that brought us “The Court of Owls” and “Death of the Family” comes their next epic storyline, a storyline that will illuminate Batman’s modified origins. After some filler issues, it’s nice to see this series get back on track. I can’t wait to take the first step in this journey of discovery!

Smallville Season 11 #14
Smallville Season 11 #14
Creative Team
Bryan Q. Miller and Daniel HDR
Solicitation
“Reunited with Supergirl, Clark must find a way to keep the peace between EarthGov, the Legion, and all of. . . New Krypton?! Plus, Booster Gold and Skeets struggle to find their place in a world that doesn’t want — or need –their help. Superman’s 31st-century adventure continues in “Argo” part 2 of 3.”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
Supergirl. Booster Gold. Skeets. The Legion. Time Travel. Humor, action, and more await us with this latest offering. The first issue of this three parter was excellent and the next part doesn’t look like it’s going to disappoint. This storyline is a perfect example of something that would have been too expensive to do on the show but is possible here, something I’m really grateful for.

Superman Unchained #1
Superman Unchained #1
Creative Team
Scott Snyder and Jim Lee
Solicitation

“When thirteen satellites fall from the sky in one day, the logical suspect is Lex Luthor-even though he’s still locked up in prison! But a stranger question remains: If Superman didn’t stop the last satellite from falling, who did? There’s a mystery hidden where even Superman can’t see it-Can The Man of Steel drag a decades-old secret into the light?”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
NEW SERIES ALERT! The new flagship Superman title starts here, perfectly timed to coincide with the release of the Man of Steel in theatres. With Snyder as the writer and the legendary Jim Lee on art, how can you possibly go wrong? Need I really say more?

The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #1
True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #1 (Becky Cloonan cover)
Creative Team
Gerard Way, Shaun Simon, and Becky Cloonan
Solicitation
“Years ago, the Killjoys fought against the tyrannical megacorporation Better Living Industries, costing them their lives, save for one-the mysterious Girl. Today, the followers of the original Killjoys languish in the Desert while BLI systematically strips citizens of their individuality. As the fight for freedom fades, it’s left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI or else join the mindless ranks of Bat City! The follow-up to the album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
Yet another NEW SERIES ALERT! Gerard Way’s Umbrella Academy was absolutely brilliant and I’m still waiting to this very day for another go around. Until that day comes we’re treated with this creative new comic that looks to replicate the formula that worked for Umbrella Academy: out there ideas mixed with fabulous art. If it’s half as good as Umbrella Academy was, we are all in for a major treat.

Wolverine and the X-Men #31
Creative Team

Jason Aaron and Nick Bradshaw
Solicitation
“HELLFIRE SAGA PART 1! Welcome to the Hellfire Academy, there’s little chance you’ll survive the experience. The most villainous school you’ve ever seen has its grand opening. With teachers like Mystique, Sauron, Mojo, Wendigo and Master Pandemonium there’s no limit to the terrible things you’ll learn. Can Wolverine and the X-Men find the school before their kidnapped students are turned into villains?”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
The grand reveal of the antithesis to the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning is finally here. We’ve been building up to this moment for a while and now we’re rewarded with the payoff. What’s life like at this super villain academy? Whatever it’s like, it’s guaranteed to be one “hell” of a good time!
