Hi, welcome to our weekly post where we tell you “What to Watch For On Wednesday.” In these posts, we will tell you what comics are coming out on Wednesday that look interesting. This week is moderately busy and looks like it will feature some gems.
Catalyst Comix #1
“Joe Casey is good at bringing reinvigorating ideas to the table . . . [he] doesn’t like to play in that sandbox so much as kick a lot of dirt around within the confines of that sandbox, and that’s wonderful.” —ComicsAlliance
If you are looking to take a shot on something new and interesting, Joe Casey is a good creator to roll the dice with. One could say that he is a catalyst for new and interesting stories. Joe Casey doing innovative superhero stuff? Yes please.
Batman Incorporated #12
No matter how you feel about Grant Morrison and Chris Burnham’s epic run on Batman Incorporated, it is coming to an end rapidly. Issue 12 and 13 will finish something that was great. With Morrison, you never know what you’re gonna’ get, but you can typically be assured that it will be challenging in a supremely awesome or bizarre way. I think that that is worth a read this week, especially with the heavy emphasis of Leviathan. Yuck.
Deadpool Kills Deadpool #1
Deadpool killed The Marvel Universe. Deadpool killed the Literary Classics. Now, under the evil machinations of Cullen Bunn, Deadpool is killing himself. This is the final act of the “Deadpool Killogy.” A tag-line given to this series is “contains over 700% of your daily recommended Deadpool!” If that is something that you’re into…buy this.
Swamp Thing #22
The Solicit for this issue is as follows:
“The mysterious Seeder has given a desperate town in Scotland an astonishing gift: a tree that bears whiskey like fruit! It’s a disturbance in the natural order that draws the Swamp Thing’s attention—trouble is, it’s caught the eye of John Constantine as well!”
I’m not sure if I need to say anything else. Whiskey trees in Scotland = -$2.99
The Private Eye #3
This wildly popular series from Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin has a clever plot set in a not-too-distant future and celebrates all of the things culturally relevant now in a nostalgic way. People are loving this comic and it is giving independent creators hope that if they can one day be top-tier famous, they can release publisher-free books however they want. It also doesn’t hurt that the price has been “Radioheaded” and is determined by the consumer. You can literally, pick up issue 1,2, and 3 digitally for $.03…
