This week in the DC universe, Endgame Part 4 continues! The Joker is back and this time, no more funny stuff. Meanwhile, in the backup story, five Arkham Asylum escapees share their encounters with The Joker. This is the book you don’t want to miss so pick up Batman #38! Also have you been confused with Multiversity and all of its many worlds? Well look no further! The Multiversity Guide Book #1 is here! The guidebook with a detailed concordance featuring each of the 52 worlds in the Multiverse, a complete history of DC Comics’ universe-shattering Crisis events, a map of all known existence, and an action-packed dual adventure, this 80-page mountain of MULTIVERSITY madness cannot be missed!
DC’s More mature readers imprint Vertigo this week gives us a new book! After a sex-tape scandal, former Hollywood child star turned Z-lister Chondra Jackson returns to her hometown of Effigy Mound, IL, to find a seemingly impossible crime – a fresh corpse in an ancient Indian burial site. Even weirder, the murder resembles a scene from an episode of her old TV show, Star Cop, a live-action children’s show about a kid detective. Will Chondra become the hero detective she played as a child or is she in fact the cult’s unwitting messiah? If you’re as curious as we are then you need to get Effigy #1!
The supernaturally awesome conclusion to the blockbuster crossover is here! Ghostly forces converge on the Ghostbusters HQ, and the Turtles’ opportunity to get back home is fast dwindling! The two teams’ last-ditch efforts may come too late! Will they prevail? Find out in TMNT Ghostbusters #4!
Image this week has a bunch of stuff coming out including some new titles by some popular writers! Marooned in Los Angeles with no memory of his past, Casanova Quinn takes on the mystery of his criminal benefactor’s tangled and bloody history as strange occult forces from the future conspire to do stuff. To him? To Los Angeles? To you? YES. The next part of Matt Fraction’s Espionage series, he brings us Casanova Acedia #1! Also from Image this week, A murder at a wedding reveals a fifty year-old secret. At great cost, a man with a dying wife is given the opportunity to save her. A lost tribe is reborn in another time. Seemingly disparate events that force relics from the greatest generation to come together for one last hurrah. It’s Indiana Jones for old People. There are no fedoras, only bedpans. Jonathan Hickman brings us his new series The Dying and The Dead #1!
In Marvel this week Spider-Man and the X-Men #2 comes in! Spidey’s already gotten his X-students captured by Sauron and Stegron! Can they stop the Savage Land from colonizing Staten Island? Also Deadpool #41 comes in this week! Deadpool has been through a lot recently and he needs to relax. Time for a good, old fashioned, simple merc job. And Deadpool in the Middle East should be nice and uncomplicated. Right? Spider-Man 2099 and Lady Spider must reunite with the rest of the spiders in time for the final battle against the Inheritors in Spider-Man 2099 # 8! And are we ever gonna find out who this new Thor chick is? Hopefully this week in Thor #4!
