DC Rebirth has done an amazing job re-energizing my interest in the publisher’s fictional universe. The DC Rebirth Special was a brilliant way to begin the new direction and it’s so obvious that DC has a clear focus with each of these titles: celebrate what people love about these characters and teams. Go back to the basics, and then do something fresh with it. Don’t change things just for the sake of changing them. Instead, embrace the positive and run with it! So far, each and every title has managed to capture my interest; some more than others, obviously, but the fact that all of the titles have me wanting to see more proves that the publisher really has given this new direction everything they’ve got. Okay, I could go on and on about why I think DC Rebirth is a step in the right direction (you can read a coworker’s editorial about that here), but that’s not why you’re here. You’re here because you want to see what DC has to offer on this week’s new comic book day! So grab a drink, get comfortable, and prepare to get excited for brand new DC Rebirth issues!

In today’s age of increasingly short attention spans, a cover may be a book’s only chance to catch a reader’s eyes. A single moment, a glance that has to tell them everything they need to know about what lies within. A great cover artist is a valuable talent in the comic book industry, working diligently to entice their audience. Using various inks, brushes, and computer programs, they create the images that etch themselves into the minds of millions. At Midtown Comics, we truly love a cool cover, and we want to show them off every Monday. Here are our picks for some of the best looking books this week, and some honorable mentions worth exploring.

Deadpool comics & merch here:

Read All-New Wolverine here:


Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, and Laura Kinney/X-23, a.k.a. Wolverine, may both have accelerated healing factors and enjoy using pointy weapons in a fight, but they’re drastically different people. The Merc with a Mouth loves to babble and use his impressive agility to throw off his opponents, but X-23 tends to apply a very no-nonsense approach – and now it’s done in a non-lethal way. Will Wade annoy the new Wolverine and take her down, or will X-23 defeat the motormouth merc?  With Civil War II currently tearing apart the Marvel Universe, we thought it would be fun to imagine these two at odds in the big event! So, who will you side with?

Marvel Netflix and Daredevil: Born Again SPOILERS are ahead! Obviously, the following article is 100% speculation.


Article by Gregg Katzman

I remember the very first time I saw Marvel’s The AvengersWatching Earth’s Mightiest Heroes unite to take on an alien invasion brought me a ridiculous amount of joy. Immediately, I felt like a five year-old kid watching cartoons – it was that level of fun. Now, Marvel and Netflix are hoping to capture that kind of magic on the small screen with Marvel’s The Defenders.

Daredevil. Jessica Jones. Iron Fist. Luke Cage. (And maaaaaaaaybe a cameo from the Punisher?) It won’t be very long until we see these heroes interact and fight a common threat. Will I get goosebumps all over again when I see these characters join forces? Considering how excellent Marvel and Netflix’s shows have been, the answer will very likely be “yes”. But what will make them unite? What could make the Man Without Fear need some help in his ongoing struggle to clean up Hell’s Kitchen? The Kingpin forming an alliance with The Hand, that’s what! For a show this big (which presumably has Daredevil in a key role), I think they should draw inspiration from a big comic: Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s Daredevil: Born Again. If you haven’t read it, you really should fix that asap. (While you’re at it, here are five other reading suggestions.)
