Cover #NewComicBookDay 5th September 2018


New Comic Book Day including Cover and The Dreaming

It’s Wednesday and of course that means new comic book day. Here are Geeky Brummie’s picks for the comics available from your local comic book store including Cover and The Dreaming.


Title: Cover

Publisher: DC Comics/Vertigo

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team: Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack. Cover by David Mack. Variant Cover by Zu Orzu.

A concepts for a comic go this one is a doozy. Two of comics greatest creators tell us a tale that may or may not be based on reality of their industry. 

From the Publisher:

“Years in the making, from the award-winning team of Brian Michael Bendis and multimedia sensation David Mack, comes a brand-new graphic novel experience. And it’s all kind of based on a true story. Sort of…

Deep in the American intelligence community, someone realizes that comic book creators, who travel all over the world to sell their wares, may make the perfect cover for operatives in the dangerous, topsy-turvy world of intelligence and counterintelligence…and that’s when all hell breaks loose. This is the story of the time the world of comics and the world of international spywork smashed together-with unexpected results!

Artist David Mack, follows his Emmy nominated work on Jessica Jones, and his critically acclaimed video work for Dashboard Confessionals and Amanda Palmer, brings another completely unique vision to this driving comedic spy story that is also a beautiful Valentine to all those creators who sit alone and make beautiful stories. “


Title: Sandman Universe – The Dreaming

Publisher: DC Comics/Vertigo

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team: Simon Spurrier and Bilquis Evely. Cover by Jae Lee. Variant Cover by Yanick Paquette.

There was a lot to like about the return of Sandman and his Universe to comics. Of the series previewed in the recent Sandman Universe #1 this and The Books of Magic held the most appeal for me and I’m hoping this regular series lives up to the comic that birthed it.

From the Publisher:

“From the upheaval of THE SANDMAN UNIVERSE #1 rises THE DREAMING-a kingdom in chaos. There is a place where stories are born. Today its walls lie slashed and bleeding. Dream has abandoned his realm, and until he is found, its residents must protect its broken borders alone. But the most senior storysmiths are tormented by invasive secrets, the warden Lucien is doubting his own mind-and beyond the gates something horrific waits with tooth and talon. Only Dora, the monstress, finds opportunity in madness, stealing dreams for the highest bidder. But she has no idea how deep the danger lies. Meanwhile, in Dream’s gallery, something new is growing…
