Pick(s) of the Week: The Star Wars #4

the star wars #4 coverThe Star Wars is the comic version of the unpublished original draft of George Lucas’ Star Wars. For three issues we’ve been introduced to a world that’s so familiar and at the same time different, new and exciting.

General Skywalker and Jedi-in-training Annikin Starkiller have a deadly encounter with mounted Stormtroopers! An encounter with outlaws in a cantina leads to a meeting with smuggler Han Solo! And a Jedi makes the ultimate sacrifice to save one of Princess Leia’s younger brothers!

It’s a duel in the desert for this awesome and fresh Star Wars series.

Check out below for the rest of our picks!


Top Pick: Terminator Salvation Final Battle #1 (Dark Horse) – Straczynski pens a 12-issue, time hopping Terminator series. Why would you not read this?

The Black Bat #7 (Dynamite) – This is a wicked good pulp series that pays homage to a near century-old antihero. It’s early enough to start from the beginning, do it.

Detective Comics #26 (DC Comics) – I had put this series down for a while (I can only read so many Batman storylines), but the cover art and genetically altered bat-people plotline has brought me back.

The Star Wars #4 (Dark Horse) – The places and names still take some time getting used to (Annikin Starkiller…), but overall it’s interesting to see the first draft of one of the world’s most iconic stories.

Graphic Novel/TPB Top Pick: Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard Vol 2 HC (Archaia) - I have just started reading Mouse Guard and it is, by far, one of best stories in print. I am now scouring eBay and Amazon for every collected edition, anthology, and Free Comic Book Day one-off issue.


Top Pick: Trillium #5 (Vertigo) – The time travel love story has delivered with every single issue. This will go down as one of the best mini-series of the year. A shining example of Vertigo’s resurgence.

The Fox #4 (Archie Comics) – The classic character has a new life courtesy of Mark Waid, Dean Haspiel and Archie comics. The first issue was solid and actually has me excited for a super hero comic from Archie!

Inhumanity #1 (Marvel) – Infinity is over and now starts the rise of the Inhumans. This’ll be a huge issue setting the tone and direction of the Marvel Universe for at least the next year.

The Star Wars #4 (Dark Horse) – See above why this is on my list.

Velvet #2 (Image Comics) – This spy series from writer Ed Brubaker and artist Steve Epting had an amazing first issue. Can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in the second.

Graphic Novel/TPB Top Pick: Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard Vol 2 HC (Archaia) – I devour each individual issue and when they’re collected as hardcovers. The fantasy series starring mice is absolutely classic and perfect to share with the whole family.

NYCC 2013: DC Announces Weekly Batman Eternal and Detective Comics #27 Details

DTC_Cv27Launching next spring, Batman Eternal is an all-new weekly series that comes to you from “showrunner” and Batman writer, Scott Snyder, along with writers James Tynion IV, John Layman, Ray Fawkes, and Tim Seeley, and artist Jason Fabok.

Snyder in a release gave some details about Batman Eternal will “set the stage for a new Gotham and new characters and a new set of stories that will take Batman into 2015.

We want this to be a place where you get to tell a story about anything you want in Gotham, so long as we’re also moving this big story forward in the background. You’ll see bombastic arcs as well but there’ll be plenty of room for Ray to explore some of the darker, more mystical aspects of Gotham that he loves or Tim to explore some of the crime we haven’t seen before. We’re five guys doing our best to give you an exciting Gotham that’s changing under the feet of its characters.

But Batman Eternal is not the only Batman news revealed this morning. DC Comics also announced that next year’s Detective Comics #27 will be a mega-sized anniversary spectacular! Spanning 104 pages, Detective Comics #27 serves as an homage to the original Detective Comics #27, which marked Batman’s comic debut in 1939, and features an all-star roster of Batman creators past and present!

In stores January 8, the issue includes a modern-day retelling of the Dark Knight’s origin by the incredible team of writer Brad Meltzer and artist Bryan Hitch! Plus, all-new stories by Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy, Peter J. Tomasi and Guillem March, Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen, Gregg Hurwitz and Neal Adams, new art by legendary Batman writer/artist Frank Miller, and more! This issue – which will include variant covers by Neal Adams, Jim Lee, Greg Capullo, Chris Burnham, Kelley Jones, Patrick Gleason and Mike Allred – also includes John Layman and Jason Fabok’s final storyline, “Gothtopia,” before the new creative team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato take over writing duties for the series in the spring.

Manupal said about their plans:

We want to bring him closer to his roots and be more of a street-level type of hero. His superheroics will still be present, but the investigative part of Batman will be at the forefront …We’ve always written stories about hope, and it will be very interesting to see what comes out when we walk through the sullen streets of Gotham City.

Buccellato added:

Stylistically, we will use the tools in our toolbox to capture what we think the Bat-universe looks and feels like. Gotham won’t look like Central City, so you won’t be seeing all the bright reds, oranges and yellows that defined Flash’s world.
