Wednesday is nearly upon us which means it’s nearly new comics day, so it’s time to take a look at three new and noteworthy additions to your pull list. Here are my picks for the Wednesday 2nd of April as we say a happy seventy fifth birthday to grandpa Batman.
Detective Comics #30
A bold new direction for Detective Comics as The Flash creative team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato take over the creative reins! Batman finds himself knee-deep in a new mystery involving a deadly new narcotic that has hit the streets of Gotham City.
Edgar Allan Poe’s The Premature Burial
The fear of being buried alive is presented in two horrifying Poe adaptations by Eisner Hall of Fame inductee Richard Corben—“The Premature Burial” and “The Cask of Amontillado.”
“Richard Corben’s art. Man, the guy just gets better and better. There is no plateau. Corben is like an aged single malt whisky, with depth and maturity added by years.”—Comics Bulletin
Caliban tells the story of a deep space freighter that unexpectedly encounters the last thing anyone expected, alien life. Humans have been exploring and exploiting resources in space for years. They never encountered life or even real evidence of other races among the stars. Until now. An accident in hyperspace sets forth a terrifying story that will take you into dark places in the human psyche. As a violent chain reaction begins, the crew of the Caliban will find themselves in a living nightmare that they can’t wake up from.
