Midtown Comics Newsletter Archive

Welcome back to the best week ever!
Batman is reborn—Superman and Green Lantern, too! Also, Civil War rages on—with an exclusive Midtown cover by J. Scott Campbell, and we may not be able to handle much more excitement in one week—but we have no choice!  Look for a massive Deadpool issue, new Timely Comics from Marvel, our upcoming exclusive cover by Terry Dodson for Batman #1, and Mike Mignola delivers a helluva double header for Dark Horse!

Superman and Green Lantern have nothin’ on Batman:
Okay, we just wanted to quote the classic song by Donovan, but Bats, Supes, and GL all get the Rebirth treatment next week! Batman Rebirth #1, is co-written by Scott Snyder and Tom King, with art and covers by Mikel Janin! Superman Rebirth #1 is by Peter J. Tomasi, with art and cover by Doug Mahnke, variant cover by Andy Park! Creative powerhouse Geoff Johns puts the ring on again as he, cowriter Sam Humphries and artist Ethan Van Sciver debut a new era of emerald greatness in Green Lanterns Rebirth #1!

Wonder Woman in the disco era:
Travel back to the sizzling ’70s as the undercover Amazon Princess joins forces with special agent Steve Trevor to defend America against Cold War-era criminals. A search for an escaped Soviet scientist brings Wonder Woman to the hottest disco of the day, Studio 52, where a live stage act might prove more of a threat to Wonder Woman than the Russian Roller Derby girls out to bring the scientist home. Wonder Woman ’77 TP Vol 01 collects Wonder Woman ’77 Special #1-2.

Civil War II begins:
A new Inhuman emerges, and the ramifications ripple into every corner of the Marvel Universe (did we mention that this Inhuman has the ability to profile the future?). The Marvel U will be rocked to its very core! Civil War II #1 is by Brian Michael Bendis with art by David Marquez, cover by Marko Djurdjevic, and variant covers by none other than Terry Dodson, Steve McNiven, Kim Jung, David Marquez, Michael Cho, Phil Noto, and a certain Midtown exclusive cover by J. Scott Campbell!

Four comics in one:
This issue of Deadpool contains two issues of Deadpool, one issue of Daredevil, and one issue of Power Man & Iron Fist! It’s all in Deadpool #13, by Gerry Duggan, with a bunch of contributing artists, cover by Francisco Herrera, and variant covers by a bunch of great artists, including Brent Schoonover, John Tyler Christopher, Rob Liefeld, Ron Lim, David Nakayama, Khoi Pham, and Chris Stevens!

Monsters, murder, mystery, Mignola:
Hellboy transforms into what he was always meant to be, in Hellboy in Hell #10, by Mike Mignola! Baltimore continues his journey to Constantinople, where his search for the Blood-Red Witch leads to the royal family, in Baltimore Empty Graves #3, by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden, with art by Peter Bergting, cover by Ben Stenbeck! Both titles are from Dark Horse!

Believe it,
G-Man and Gregg!
