On The Radar: Comic Book Coming Attractions 04/23/14

Radar

It is time once again to highlight the upcoming comics that I’m looking forward to the most, the ones that are On My Radar:

Avengers Undercover #3
Avengers Undercover #3

Creative Team

Dennis Hopeless and Timothy Green
Solicitation
“FACE-TO-FACE WITH ARCADE! What happens when the Murder World survivors confront their former captor? Hint: Someone doesn’t survive!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
It is the showdown we’ve been waiting for since the conclusion of Avengers Arena: Arcade VS the Kids. How will the confrontation play out? And just whose life will end? The most intriguing issue yet for this young series by far!

Batman Eternal #3

Creative Team
Scott Snyder and Jason Fabok
Solicitation

“A gang war erupts in Gotham City, but the G.C.P.D. doesn’t plan to help Batman stop it. Plus: The return of a fan-favorite Batman supporting character: Stephanie Brown!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
You had me at the mere mention of Stephanie Brown.

The Flash #30
Flash #30
Creative Team
Robert Venditti and Brett Booth
Solicitation
“An all-new creative team makes its debut to show the deadly consequences of The Flash’s speed powers. During the traumatic events of FOREVER EVIL, Central City suffered the worst that the Crime Syndicate could dish out. Now The Flash has returned to make things right, but there are limits to what even the Fastest Man Alive can do!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
Ever since Manapul left this series it has been severely lacking. Finally a new creative team has arrived albeit one I’m approaching with some hesitation. I’ve not been a big fan of Venditti’s run so far on Green Lantern but perhaps his Flash will win me over? I’m crossing my fingers…

Justice League United #0
Justice League United #0
Creative Team
Jeff Lemire and Mike McKone
Solicitation
“Top comics writer Jeff Lemire teams with superstar artist Mike McKone for the all-new monthly series JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED, starring the new team of powerful heroes Earth calls Justice League Canada! In the aftermath of FOREVER EVIL, Adam Strange is caught up in an adventure across the far reaches of the cosmos that will unite an unexpected team of heroes including Supergirl, Hawkman, Green Arrow, Stargirl, Martian Manhunter and Animal Man–but if they’re on the team, who exactly is Canadian? Plus: Don’t miss the debut of a new Canadian hero who will have a huge effect on the group!”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
 A comic that takes place in Canada? A Justice League with Supergirl, Green Arrow, Stargirl, and Animal Man? The talented tandem of Lemire and McKone? The debut of a new Canadian hero? What more could I possibly want?

Original Sin #0
Original Sin #0
Creative Team
Mark Waid and Jim Cheung
Solicitation
“IT’S THE PROLOGUE TO THE BIGGEST MARVEL SERIES OF THE SUMMER! WHO IS THE WATCHER? That’s what Nova is wondering after his latest brush with the moon-dwelling enigma he’s encountered before! But what he discovers will have a profound effect on the young hero, as well as priming the pump for the most cataclysmic event in Marvel history! WHAT DID HE SEE?”
Why I’m Looking Forward To It
It’s time for yet another big Marvel event and you can tell they’re serious because of the sentences entirely composed of capital letters. In all seriousness, I’m looking forward to this series as a whole for the whole whodunit murder mystery plot and you really can’t go wrong with Waid and Cheung as the warm up team.

  1. Awesome, I’m looking forward to Batman Eternal and The Flash as well, also The Walking Dead #126 as its the final of the All Out War storyline. Have a great new comic book day 😀

  2. I’m picking up nothing this week. There’s actually not a single comic coming out this week that I’m willing to spend money on. Which isn’t a problem, since I have so little of it.
