This Week's Releases: November 1, 2006

Happy spooking tonight, all. I intended to do a Halloween post, but didn't: consider it a trick.

Though I agree with the general hivemind that more series examining the early days of Batman and Superman is as welcome as idea as pre-toasted bread, I'm still excited for Superman Confidential. I don't care if the series as a whole is a bomb, just give me some Cooke/Sale Superman and I'll be happy. I'm also looking forward to the Fossen family event that greets a new Mouse Guard, and the assuredly not-family-friendly Enis/Sprouse Midnighter.

I'm generally a sucker for What If, and its look at the "Disassembled" fiasco holds just enough interest for me I'm considering a purchase ... but the Newsarama preview seems to indicate it's another piece of the "Suddenly Ms. Marvel is important again!" house of cards that I'm just not buying. I may turn that money towards Fantastic Four: The End which will at least contain Official Alan Davis Purtiness.

Mark Fossen said...

Yeah - that's from Superman Confidential, and he's doing all the art for the first six-issue arc.

You not getting Nightwing? Were you able to try out Wolfmann's first issue last month?

Mark Fossen said...

I missed the first issue - was it any good?

Kevin said...

Nightwing 125 was a pretty good book. Nothing spectacular but not at all bad. There's two mysteries introduced in Wolfman's first issue, not sure if they are related or not. I think the title would be better if Nightwing made his way back to Gotham, but it looks like Wolfman is keeping him in NY. If you like Nightwing, you'll be happy with the issue, but it's not something that a new reader might jump on if they aren't a Nightwing fan (unless you are a Wolfman or Jurgens fan of course).

Rokk's Comic Book Revolution has a good summary of it: http://comicbookrevolution.blogspot.com/2006/10/comic-book-review-nightwing-125.html
