Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but new comics are so delightful! Good thing we’ve got another wednesday on the way, and this week’s bounty is guaranteed to bring more joy than a fireplace full of yule logs. We’ve got a ton of new shirts, the Justice League of the future, more Inhumanity, more Pop figures, a new WWE comic, and that’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg! Here’s the Monday Update.
The spotlight this week goes to Justice League 3000 #1 from DC. What sort of heroes does the future hold? Is there a new Batman, Flash, or Wonder Woman? How is old Superman holding up? What the heck is future Green Lantern wearing? All those questions and more will be answered this Wednesday in this all new ongoing series from the writing team of Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis.
In other DC news, there’s plenty of action right here in the present day! First up is the conclusion to Batgirl: Wanted in Batgirl #26. It looks like the truth about her brother’s death is about to come out, but will it come at the cost of her own secret identity? Next, Zero Year continues in Batman #26. It looks like Batman and Jim Gordon are going to have to learn to work together, because the Riddler has created more than enough Chaos for just one of them to handle. Finally, we have several Forever Evil tie ins for you. This week’s Forever Evil books are Constantine #9, Justice League of America #10, Justice League #25, Forever Evil: Arkham War #3, and Suicide Squad #26.
Over in the Marvel Universe, some big stuff is afoot! First, the Ultimate Universe’s apocalyptic event “Cataclysm” continues this week with Cataclysm: Ultimate Spider-Man #2, and Cataclysm: Ultimates #2. Will the heroes of the Ultimate Universe be able to save their world from destruction? Next, we’ve got 4 Inhumanity tie ins this week in the form of Inhumanity: Awakening #1, Avengers AI #7.INH, Mighty Avengers #4.INH, and Uncanny X-Men #15.INH. Finally, Wolverine and Cyclops are on the same side of a fight? What a refreshing change! I suppose when SHIELD is making their own sentinels, it’s not hard to find common ground. Don’t miss the action in Wolverine and the X-Men #39.
Meanwhile, there’s all sorts of Batman retro 8-inch figures coming in, there’s some stylish Captain America, Punisher, and Spider-Man polo shirts on the way just in time for the holidays, and not one, but two new issues of Amazing Spider-Man! Plus, there’s some Batman ’66 pops on the way, the WWE gets its own ongoing comic series, and there’s some new tshirts featuring Galactus, and Iron Man!
