InvestComics Wonder Woman Checklist – All Ebay Sellers – Buy/Bid – Click Image

DC Comics will begin two new storylines this Wednesday. Flash #25 ‘Running Scared’, written by Joshua Williamson and art by Carmine Di Giandomenico. This issue will give you more bang for the buck, it’s ‘extra sized’. Suicide Squad #20 begins the ‘False Flag’ story. Written by Rob Williams and art by Stjepan Sejic.

DC’s Wonder Woman #25 extra sized issue focuses on every storyline since the Wonder Woman Rebirth era. That’s four major stories and maybe a few more sprinkled in. Writer Greg Rucka brings all of this together in one issue. Greg has been killing it on these pages of Wonder Woman, he will kill it here in this extra sized issue as well. Art from Liam Sharp and Bilquis Evely.
Out of all of the DC/Looney Tunes crossover comics from recent weeks, Batman/Elmer Fudd Special #1 seems to be the most interesting. The ultimate hunter hunts the ultimate darkness of night. This special is written by Tom King (no stranger to Batman!) and art by Byron Vaughns.

The ever so popular Venom character picks it up a notch in a new summer event starting in Edge of Venomverse #1. This series of books will create a bit of a frenzy as the next big breakout mash-up character will probably emerge. Who will it be? Will it be Venom Gwenpool, Venom Ghost Rider, Venom X-23, Venom Rocket Raccoon, Venom Doctor Strange, Venom Cap, Venom Deadpool, and the list goes on. So the best advice we offer here is to buy anything regarding the Venomverse so you don’t miss that boat on any mash-up that may breakout. First and foremost you’ll be getting a Venom story delivered by excellent writer Cullen Bunn, so it’s a win right there even if a character never does breakout into a spin-off or create a ridiculous speculative aftermarket surge.
Readers will learn more about the character named Malarus in Star Wars: Poe Dameron #16. The first time we saw Malarus was back in Star Wars: Poe Dameron #13.

And speaking of Star Wars, if you like stories with very little dialog, then maybe Star Wars Droids Unplugged #1 will be for you. The comic drives on the concept of following three Droids and their adventures; R2D2, BB-8 and the Probe Droids. So with that synopsis, we assume there won’t be much story dialog getting driven here. Safe to assume this, no? They’re Droids! On the contrary though, back in 1986, Marvel went this route with Star Wars: Droids #1 from their Star Comics imprint. However, lots of dialog in this eight-part series. C3PO led the way with his talkative self, hence lots of dialog. He never shuts up! One of the true highlights of the first five issues has to be the legendary John Romita Sr. penciling all five covers and did the interior for the first four issues. That in itself is a reason to have this series in your collection.
The amazing writing skills of Greg Pak continues as his mash-up will come to life sooner or later; Hulk/Wolverine….or whatever they call ‘it’. Check out Totally Awesome Hulk #20 for part two of Weapons of Mutant Destruction. We really cannot wait for the title ‘Totally Awesome..’ to go away. It’s so silly and juvenile. It’ll happen, just need Marvel to realize how silly it really is and that will happen eventually. We guarantee it.

Spawn fans get a double dose of their favorite demon torn hero this Wednesday. Spawn #1 Encore Edition features lots of goodies from the original Spawn #1 issue 25 years ago. It’ll have art boards, McFarlane commentary and Image promises some surprises as well. Todd McFarlane’s cover is a direct homage to Joe Quesada’s Ultimate Spider-Man #1 (2000). We love it. Also, Spawn #275 sees the return of Sam and Twitch. They first appeared in Spawn #1.

Valiant Entertainment is about to release their latest comic to rave reviews. The comic is Secret Weapon #1 and it will sell out, thus leading to a second print by next week. The stories leading player is Livewire. She was first introduced into the Valiant Universe in 1993’s Harbinger #14. Livewire then was reintroduced into the NEW Valiant Universe in 2012’s Harbinger #3. We’ve said this before (lots of times before….lots), if you really want to READ a comic book and get 100% viable substance from a well told story(s), Valiant Entertainment is the way to go. We cannot stress this enough. Secret Weapon #1 is going to get comic fans talking, best be on it so you’re in the know and not the what.
Look for another sell out/hit from Black Mask Comics. Beautiful Canvas #1, written by Ryan Lindsay and art by Sami Kivela.
Two new comics to check out from Scout Comics this week. Tinkers of the Wasteland #1, writer/art by Raul Trevino. Scout Comics releases a second issue never released before with a hit number one comic, together. Super cool to read Necromantical Ultimate Collection 1 with that second issue this Wednesday.

Keenspot’s Softball #1 follows a YouTube series pulling in over 100 million views. That’s a whole lot of views! Writer/art Bill Blankenship.
Alterna Comics continue their torrid pace within the industry with the reintroduction of the ‘old comic print’ comics. This week they continue that onslaught with Scrimshaw #1. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this new (old) comic format, we suggest you do. It’s nostalgic to the older crowd and the newer crowds get to see how cool it was to read a comic book the ‘old’ way. The material inside the pages of all the Alterna Comics releases within this new format has been on point too, so you’ll be purchasing a good story/art as well. What else does a comic fan need? Scrimshaw #1; written by Eric Borden and art by Dave Mims.
