New Comic Book Day with Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds.
Time to pick up some new comics from Worlds Apart Birmingham (formerly Nostalgia & Comics). These are Geeky Brummie’s picks of the comics available today from your local comic book store including a few from DC this week – Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds and Doomsday Clock.
Title: Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds
Publisher: DC’s Young Animal
Issue No.: 3
Creative Team: Gerard Way & Jeremy Lambert – Writers : Evan Shaner – Artist : Nick Derington – Cover Artist
A very personal choice this week. There are some other major comics events happening elsewhere (see Spawn #300 in my roundup) but I just want people to be reading Doom Patrol. Gerard Way has done a bang up job of bring new life to some of DC’s weirdest heroes and I love them all as much as ever. He’s even introduced some new friends to the team who fit in just fine. After two issues of this current series things appear to take a swerve in a completely different direction. I won’t pretend that I have any clue what is happening now after the last issue ended with the introduction of The Positive Man. Whatever happening I’m sure it will be weird and wonderful.
From the Publisher:
“Special 287th-anniversary issue! Someone in the city of Goliath is killing cops—robot cops, that is!—and it’s up to the Doom Patrol Detective Agency to find out who…but their only clues are pages torn from a pulp paperback littering the streets of this neo-noir nightmare of a city. The secret of Goliath will die along with their hope of escape unless the team can band together once again, just like the old days.“
Title: Doomsday Clock
Publisher: DC Comics
Issue No.: 11
Creative Team: Geoff Johns – Writer : Gary Frank – Artist, Cover Artist & Variant Cover Artist
Some things are worth waiting for. Now I’m surprised to hear my self saying that about a title I was less than looking forward to. But over the last 10 issues Geoff Johns and Gary Frank have put together a story that has not only held my interest but has changed how I felt about the introduction of the Watchmen characters into the wider DC Universe. The story is deep and complex and Gary Frank has been delivering superb art every issue and if that means we have to wait for this story to play out as the creators wanted – then I’m more than happy to wait.
From the Publisher:
“The critically acclaimed series by the renowned team of writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank marches towards its conclusion. In this penultimate issue, the truth behind “Rebirth” is revealed as Batman searches for the one person he believes can help him save the world… Rorschach!“
Also out this week are some other comics I recommend you take a look at including Spawn #300, House of X #4, Supergirl #33 (delayed from a few weeks ago), Legion of Super-heroes: Millennium #2 and The Dreaming #13.
