Hey Fandom, it’s me Aaron for A Comic Show talking about New Comics Now! It’s not a big week, but a few of my favorites came out.

DC’s Justice League is finally moving towards July’s Trinity War. This issue has Batman trying to break up Wonder Woman and Superman. Vibe continues to endear it’s self to me and since Sterling Gates is the Vibe of DC’s writers he’s a perfect fit for the book. Red Hood has Tynion writing which is very welcomed by me, and not just because it means this title will have stronger ties to Snyder’s Batman. Here he plays clean up and then set up, perhaps giving us a Jason Todd reboot. And Wonder Woman is kissing just anybody now! Dial H volume one is truly a unique book in the New 52, it’s dark corner of DC Dark isn’t the magic stuff, but more the weird old Doom Patrol flavor of Vertigo. If this title was an Image book it would have so much more buzz, it’s a smartly strange look at heroism.

Marvel’s Age of Ultron finally reveals the two paths to getting our familiar Marvel Universe back; destroy Ultron in the future or kill Pym in the past. Superior Spider-man has Cardiac unknowingly help Ock’s war of the mind with Peter (can’t wait for next issue). Nova #3 again was good, I love Rocket Raccoon!

TMNT’s Krang felt like an episode of Squidbillies at times, but I like these villain books and the Secret History of the Foot more than the regular ongoing. There are rumors of something big going down with Shredder, Casey Jones and Raphael in TMNT #22 though. Revival is consistently one of the best Image books out there and that’s saying a lot. Manhattan Projects volume 2 is out, and didn’t let up one bit from volume one. Every issue of this book is dense, and there’s just something about space animals and me…I love that dog!
