In the blue corner, we have the Last Son of Krypton: Superman! And lurking over in the shadows, we have the Dark Knight: Batman! Everyone knows the Man of Steel is way more powerful than the Caped Crusader, but despite being just a human, Batman should never be underestimated! Thanks to his resources and brilliant mind, Gotham’s hero was able to build a suit that allowed him to take strikes from the immensely strong Kryptonian. This suit first appeared in Frank Miller’s iconic comic The Dark Knight Returns, and it recently made its big screen debut in Batman v Superman. Now, this ridiculously cool-looking armored Batman can make an appearance right in your collection!

Thanks to David Ayer’s latest movie, the Suicide Squad has become a household name, and that really is something that I never thought I’d say! Suddenly people who have never picked up a comic book before are talking about Deadshot, Killer Croc, Katana, and others – it’s so cool seeing people interested in these characters. Now that we’ve seen what Warner Bros. and DC’s big screen direction is for Task Force X, it’s time for DC to flesh out a brand new adventure for the team where it all began: the comics!
Suicide Squad #1 is totally new reader friendly. It doesn’t matter if you’ve read every Suicide Squad comic before or if the movie was the very first time you saw this deadly group of characters – this comic has what it takes to keep dedicated and new fans entertained.
Two teams enter, one team wins a poll. Well, unless there’s a tie, then… everybody’s a winner. Yay!
Deadly and unpredictable or skilled and coordinated? Do you think the Suicide Squad’s lethal and intimidating ways will allow them to overcome the new team in Detective Comics? Or do you think the combination of tactics and talent will allow Batwoman’s group to take down Task Force X? To make things as simple as possible, assume everyone is acting in character and they’re facing off in a city that has no interference from other heroes, villains, and law enforcement. So, which team do you think should earn the victory? Think it through, vote in the poll, and then maybe elaborate a bit in the comments! When all is said and done, don’t forget to read their respective DC Rebirth titles, too! Seriously, it’s good stuff.

We’re looking to really step up the amount of content on the blog, so if this performs well enough, we’ll make this a weekly segment, and maybe even include video of the Midtown Comics staff sharing their thoughts on the brawl. As always, we’re open to hearing what YOU want to see, so please share your feedback with us!

An image is everything. It can capture an emotion, an excitement, an unexplainable exhilaration. Comic book covers are crafted specifically to capture these feelings, these larger than life concepts and distill them into a single moment. Whether it be a feeling of solitude and quiet remembrance or the boundless joy of possibility, these moments stick with us and linger. We here at Midtown Comics like to celebrate these moments and the spectacular artists who work to bring them to life. Gathered here today are some of our favorite covers of the week, as well as some honorable mentions we have to give a shout out to!
This week, we’re on vacation! But that doesn’t mean we forgot about you! Gregg has a chat with super star comic writer Scott Snyder about his new book All-Star Batman!
