Tomorrow is the most magnificent day of the week: new comic book day. Each and every Wednesday, the comic industry unleashes a bunch of brand new issues for you to enjoy. From fun action to compelling drama, there’s always going to be something for everyone out there – and obviously, tomorrow is no exception! Plenty of interesting comics will go on sale – click here for the full list of new releases – but we’re giving four issues some extra love.


Batman/TMNT Adventures #1


TWO Batman and TMNT crossovers in a single year? IDW Publishing and DC Comics, thank you so very much. The previous crossover – which was published by DC – focused on the comic book incarnations of the Dark Knight and the Heroes in a Half Shell. Now, IDW is publishing a crossover that’s focused on the animated incarnations! Kevin Conroy’s Caped Crusader from Batman The Animated Series is joining forces with the current animated Ninja Turtles from Nickelodeon! This is clearly mandatory reading for all of my fellow Batman TAS and TMNT fans out there. Oh, and Ninja Turtles fans, give the latest TMNT show a shot! I was skeptical at first but it’s legitimately great.

Invincible Iron Man #1


There’s a new hero in the Marvel Universe and her name is Riri Williams, a.k.a. Ironheart. Taking place after Civil War II, Bendis and Caselli’s opening chapter is totally new reader friendly and a bunch of fun. This issue is mostly focused on helping readers get a better understanding of Riri while also mixing in a some amusing superhero action and just a bit of emotion. Bendis’ script is consistently engaging in this one but the art team – Caselli and Gracia – deserve praise for their work on creating some believable expressions throughout the issue.

  • Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
  • Artist: Stefano Caselli
  • Colorist: Marte Gracia
  • Letterer: VC’s Clayton Cowles
