New Super Hero Comics On Sale: Week Of January 22


Another new comics day, another healthy dose of snow here in Central Pennsylvania. It’s almost like there’s a conspiracy to keep me from getting to my LCS, and Mother Nature is prominently involved.

What will I miss if I can’t make it? Some more “All New” stuff from Marvel, including a new incarnation of everyone’s favorite World War II super-team, the Invaders (though as a kid, I was partial to DC’s All-Star Squadron myself). “Avengers” #25 is promising that someone dies, “FF” wraps up its run with #16, and “Iron Man” has a top secret solicitation, so who knows what happens there?

Despite the gnashing of teeth that occurred in some corners when DC realunched all of its books at the beginning of its New 52 initiative, a bunch of those titles have arrived at #27 this week, meaning they’re longer-running volumes than almost anything Marvel has on the shelves right now. The highlight for me is “Justice League” #27 as it continues to deal directly with the impact of “Forver Evil.”
