New Super Hero Comics On Sale: Week Of April 30


When I was a younger lad, five Wednesdays in a month meant that one would have virtually no new super hero comics. Both Marvel and DC tended to take it easy on the fifth week unless they were doing events of some sort, sometimes coming up with gimmicks specifically for that week.

Marvel sure isn’t doing that today. Not only is there a large helping of Avengers goodness, there’s something really big on sale today: the return of Amazing Spider-Man! Even though it’s strange discussing a new first issue for ASM, it’s good to see Peter Parker back in his own mind and body. Props to Marvel for making Otto Octavius’ run as the wall-crawler interesting though, as the Superior Spider-Man era was more entertaining than I would have originally thought.

Things are quieter on the DC side, where roughly half of what’s out today consists of annuals or limited series. We also see the long delay for Forever Evil #7 have a real impact, as the Forever Evil Aftermath Batman vs. Bane issue (obviously) deals with what happens in Gotham City right after the event. At least we know Batman and Bane both make it out alive. Oops, spoilers!
