Hot Comic Book Releases: 7/8/2015

Guess what day it is?! Hump Day!! It’s new comic book day! Marvel is buzzing after their big All-New All-Different announcement last week and some big things shaking elsewhere in the comics world. Oh yeah, and this little shindig called San Diego Comic Con! So let’s dive in to the top shelf on this week’s Fresh Picks!

Fresh Picks

  • First up, from Archie Publications comes the reboot almost 75 years in the making. You’ve seen him hang out with his friends, fight zombies, fight the Predator, and even die; now see him like never before in Archie #1. Mark Waid and Fiona Staples join forces to archie1re-imagine the gang from Riverdale and shake things up a bit. There are over 20 variant covers to choose from, so grab this first issue of Archie’s new, ongoing series at your Local Comic Book Store today.
  • DC Comics is releasing Batman #42. I’m really amped about this new story arc. Some people aren’t too happy with robo-bunny-Batman, but I think it’s a really compelling story and definitely worth your time to check it out.
  • IDW is putting out a crossover that sounds. interesting? The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise meets the Green Lantern Corps in Star Trek / Green Lantern #1. In what IDW is calling the crossover event of 2015, Kirk and Spock discover something unusual on a lost planet, which kicks off The Spectrum War.
  • Marvel is taking full advantage of their Star Wars comic line by giving a miniseries to none other than Lando Calrissian. In Lando #1, we get to see a younger Lando before his days with the rebellion and running Cloud City. He’s planning on stealing a valuable ship, and I’m sure his story will be chock full of charm and swag.
  • In this week’s Marvel Secret Wars round-up, we have some great tie-ins: 1872 #1, Age of Apocalypse #1, Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #2, Civil War #1, Ghost Racers #2, Inferno #3, Master of Kung Fu #3, Mrs. Deadpool and the Howling Commandos #2, Runaways #2, Secret Wars 2099 #2, Spider-Island #1, Spider-Verse #3, and Squadron Sinister #2.
