Hey Fandom! It’s me, Aaron, for A Comic Show’s NEW COMICS NOW! This week we got in some stuff I liked and I’m gonna tell you about it!

For DC is books by writer’s I love. First up is Scott Snyder on The Wake (from DC’s Vertigo imprint) with Sean Murphy on art…that’s really all you need to know. It’s a sci-fi horror mash-up that shows Vertigo still has ideas in motion. Jeff Lemire has an awesome story in the Adventures of Superman #1 (and OSC doesn’t). Matt Knidt’s Martian Manhunter back up is worth the price of Justice League of America’s #4, but Geoff Johns’ Catwoman is perfect too. And Tynion made Red Hood readable and the New 52 Arsenal relevant (while getting rid of that stupid Liefeld ballcap)!

Marvel has Brian Wood’s X-Men #1, and all female franchise first that transcends the gimmick. Using the all girl gimmick as a tool, I’m giving out the issue free to all females this Wednesday to build good will because I’m a tool sometimes.

Franchise books had a good showing with the Adventure Time Annual and TMNT #22. Check out that TMNT Phantom variant homage cover! I know I’m not supposed to like variants, but it hits my Hulk vs Wolverine and TMNT nostalgia buttons (and I’m selling it for cover price in the shop).

The strange but great book of the week for me was Clive Barker’s Next Testament #1. Basically it proposes the Old Testament God had actually been imprisoned since the end of that run, and the Jesus guy wasn’t him. Oh, and now he’s free and ready to rumble!

Richa adds – He’s not the only retailer talking Orson. Two Californian comic book stores are pledging 20% of their store profits from May 29th to June 4th to Freedom to Marry, The Comic Bug on Manhattan Beach and Illusive Comics & Games in Santa Clara, as a result of the change by DC, removing Orson Scott Card’s story from Adventures Of Superman #1, out tomorrow.
