What to Watch for Wednesday

Posted by Luke Brown On August - 31 - 2011

For comics shipping 08.31.11 or The Week DC Got All New Wave On Your LCS. Every week I’ll check Diamond’s shipping list to see what you absolutely, positively need to spend all your hard earned cash on at the Local Comic Shop.

DARK HORSE COMICS

Angel and Faith #1 – $2.99

I know that a lot of people lost interest in BTVS Season 8 towards the end, but I still enjoyed the whole shebang. This new mini will I believe be bridging the gap between Season 8 and the upcoming Season 9, and stars everyone’s favorite bad girl slayer. I haven’t even mentioned yet that it’s being drawn by Rebekah Isaacs. That alone should be enough even for non-Whedonites.

DC COMICS

Justice League #1 – $3.99

It all begins here. The new wave of DC Comics starts with the launch of a brand-new Justice League comic by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee. They’ll be battling Darkseid. New costumes. New universe. New rules. This book will also be available same day digitally, but Jim Lee pages deserve to be studied by hand. And not to get off topic, but when did it become so popular to hate Jim Lee all of a sudden? Sure, he’s not the most timely of pencilers, but damn if the man isn’t still one of the best storytellers working today.

MARVEL COMICS

The Mighty Thor #5 – $3.99

Thor vs. The Silver Surfer. Odin vs. Galactus. Volstagg vs. … um… well… somebody. It’s Fraction and Coipel. You can’t go wrong.

That’ll do for this week. See you next time when there are even more new DC titles to get excited about.
