New Super Hero Comics On Sale: Week Of January 8


As Selina Gomez would say, that’s more like it! Wow, did I just reveal that I know the lyrics to some of Selina’s non-radio songs? Ahem. This is… awkward.

Anyway, what I was talking about was the fact that after two light weeks over the holidays, the spigot that controls new super hero comics has been turned so that it’s wide open this week. In particular, Marvel has a full slate of new releases as its All New Marvel Now initiative gets going. That means a new #1 issue for X-Factor along with a new solo book for Black Widow (sporting a much higher profile thanks to the Marvel films of the past few years) and the promising “Avengers World.”

DC counters with an extra large “Detective Comics” issue that celebrates making it to the same number (27) that first gave us Batman way back in the day. It includes a modern New 52 retelling of his origin and an all-star cast of contributors, and if you’ve got any love for the Dark Knight at all, you probably want to pick it up.

Without further ado, here’s the whole list:


  • “A+X” #16
  • “All New Marvel Now Point One” #1
  • “All New X-Factor” #1
  • “Avengers A.I.” #8.NOW
