New Super Hero Comics On Sale: Week Of April 23


It’s hard to believe that the New 52 relaunch of DC’s super hero comics happened two and a half years ago. But it’s true, as seven different titles hit the #30 mark this week, including Aquaman, Superman and The Flash.

Ironically, that means those series have been running in their current volumes longer than every Marvel book on sale this week. And there’s no way I would have guessed that Ultimate Spider-Man and Thunderbolts would be the longest running titles of that bunch, but there they are, both sitting at #25. Since Miles Morales is about to get a new #1 soon, maybe Thunderbolts will be the torch-bearer for long runs. That would be a strange state of affairs, to say the least.

Numbering of comic book series is a divisive issue, with some readers absolutely hating the current trend of constant restarts and others not minding at all. It strikes me as the kind of thing that only we comic fans, and that non-readers probably think it’s pretty silly that we even think about or discuss it.
