A handfull of titles / a gazillion varient covers
This week we see a receding tide of titles. No doubt the calm before the tidal wave of announcements that will come with next month’s SDCC. There are however a few gems of note.
We Are Robin #1 DC
Story Lee Bermejo Art Jorge Corona, Rob Haynes, Khary Randolph
Duke Thomas is abandoned by circumstance and takes it upon himself to find his parents and maintain order around him in the wake of Joker Virus. He is approached by others, also seeking to restore order to the chaos. Inspired by the Boy Wonder the forever young Gotham protector and partner to the city’s Dark Knight, Duke and the rest of the Robins are a new take on the sidekick character.
Also out from DC this week Grayson #9, Teen Titans #9, Deathstroke #7 and Batgirl #41 ( sans the controversial Joker cover)
Fight Club 2 #2
STORY Chuck Palahniuk Art Cameron Stewart
Tyler has been getting out. Only now Sebastian has a wife and kids to look out for.
The industry is going a little cray with this variant cover thing they’ve been doing. Ever since Kirkman’s Walking Dead variant cover payday last year the comic book big wigs are acting like its the 90’s again with multiple versions of cover art. Maybe somebody should remind them how that worked out.
