We’re on the cusp of San Diego touching down upon the comic book industry, but that hasn’t stopped the new releases from being discussed. Here’s what’s on tap:

5) Zatanna #15
It was a good run while it lasted under the leadership of Paul Dini, but it looks like it’s getting the boot come September. Enjoy this while it lasts – it was a great insight into the life of one of the premier magicians of the DCU.

4) Flashpoint – Deadman and the Flying Graysons #2
This was a unique take on the Grayson crew with Deadman as the tag-along. Incorporating it into the Amazon/Atlantean war will make this next issue interesting as we see what fate lies ahead for Flashpoint Dick Grayson.

3) Daredevil #1
I avoided this book like the plague during its Shadowland run. Getting Mark Waid to re-launch the title is enough to get me back in.

2) Flashpoint – Wonder Woman and the Furies #2
Had Knight of Vengeance not been knocking our socks off, this would be right up there as the strongest Flashpoint tie-in. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning know what it takes to juggle wars and they’re proving that as they set up the seeds for what caused Diana to declare such a war on the Atlanteans.

1) Batman : Gates of Gotham #3
It’s Scott Snyder time! Although to be fair, Kyle Higgins deserves just as much credit for the architectural story revolving around a plot to destroy the descendants of the founding families of Gotham. Just when you think you run out of good Batman stories to tell, new writers come in and prove you wrong.


  • Sorry to hear they are ending Zatanna. One of my favorite characters. I tend to go with the magic.

    Didn’t we used to do a podcast together? I need to change that soon.

    It’s amazing it went as long as it did in this market.  I’d be curious if she’d work well in a Vertigo imprint, knowing that Vertigo books tend to sell better in trade.

    You were the caterer for those podcasts, right?
