What are you most anticipated comics for the 2nd half of 2019 and beyond? Certain announcements that just flat out have you stoked?
Here are mine.
Superman: Year One by Frank Miller -Pretty self-explanatory. Frank Miller? Superman? Year one? Sign me up please.
Batman and Superman by Joshua Williamson August 2019
-What Ive read of his acclaimed Flash run, Ive liked. Batman and Superman are two of my favorite characters, cliche I know, but nothing beats the Worlds Finest. These 2 characters have so much chemistry when their together, with a writer like Williamson, you can bet Im looking forward to this.
Young Justice by Bendis (Ongoing)
-This series is ongoing currently and pretty well recieved. Anybody who knows Bendis, cant deny he has a talent when it comes to “younger” heroes. Bendis teased that the series will be venturing into the Kingdom Come Universe. This excites me a 1000%. Kingdom Come is one of my favorite DC books of all time.
Batman: Three Jokers by Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok. 2019/2020???
-Okay, this is gonna be a big deal when it releases. With Johns and Fabok its already gonna attract a ton of people, and the three joker being a conspirach theory among fans for years finally coming to light. Johns is an all-time DC great and with Fabok this book is gonna be stellar no doubt.
Justice League by Scott Snyder Ongoing
-One of DC’s best books and I have a feeling its gonna continue to impress. Its been teased that Starro, ahem, Jarro, is gonna continue to be a key player and were gonna have the “Doom War” in August which is also exciting. Snyder is a writer who really doesnt seem to care what anyone thinks and just goes for it on his crazy ideas and its great.
The Green Lantern by Grant Morrison Ongoing
-One of DC’s best books right now, haha I say that a lot. Morrison is an all time fan favorite and this Green Lantern story has been absolutely stellar and one for the history books. Hes teased a “multiversal” green lantern event upcoming in the series featuring all kinds of different Green Lanterns from different universes. Any Green Lantern fan should know this series is a must have.
Freedom Fighters by Venditti(Ongoing)
-A few issues into this absolutely stellar series. I love this New Age of Heroes line of DC. The Terrifics by Lemire was soooo good. Some of these creator teams are absolutely stellar. Venditti has been cconsistently a great DC writer. His Hal Jordan and the GLC was stellar, Hawkman was also amazing!
Justice League Dark by James Tynion(Ongoing)
-Tynion is the Snyder apprentice thats killing the game. His detective comics run was great, this Justice League Dark has been no different. Very interested to see where he will take it, the roster for this Dark series has been one of my team rosters yet too.
Detective Comics by Peter Tomasi(Ongoing)
-Tomasi’s Superman run was one of my favorite DC runs in recent years, this detective comics run has been fantastic as well. An excellent followup to Tynions great run, Tomasi has been very consistent in his quality with Superman, Super Sons and Batman and Robin.
So these are some of the series that I know of that are ongoing or coming soon that Im looking forward to.
What are YOU looking forward to? Im curious if there has been other awesome stuff announced that Im not aware of.
