New Comic Day 2.23.2011

Light week. Which is good because, as you may have noticed because of the lack of a "Reading and Writing" blog, I haven't even got through last week's books.

I dunno, I'm busy...give me a break.

Detective Comics #874 $2.99

"There are some cases that come screaming back at phone calls in the night..."

For years, Jim Gordon has been haunted by the unsolved case of Gotham's notorious "Peter Pan Killer." Now, armed with new evidence, Gordon is determined to put the case to rest.
But as he digs deeper, he'll unearth a shocking discovery about his own past – a revelation that will shake him to the core. Skeletons will be exposed and secrets revealed in this special issue featuring art by Francesco Francavilla!

Wow. That is a cool cover.

I always love stories that bring Jim Gordon right into the fray. I've never liked seeing Gordon as an old fart sitting around waiting for Batman to solve everything. I felt like Frank Miller put an end to that with Batman: Year One. Yet, it really feels like a lot of writers don't know what to do with, or how to handle Gordon. Hopefully this story will work.

Captain America #615 $3.99
Writer: Ed Brubaker
Penciller: Butch Guice
Artist: Marko Djurdjevic

The shocking finale of THE TRIAL OF CAPTAIN AMERICA! Did we mention nothing would ever be the same again? Because seriously, it won't. 

I really hope that mean Steve back in the proper costume.

I mean, come on, Joey Q, clock's ticking until the movie comes out. You'd hate to see a Marvel product that doesn't match up with the movie...

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #154 $3.99
The exchange between the Black Cat and Mysterio has leveled a portion of New York City. What mysterious power does the artifact in Mysterio’s possession hold? Find out here!

Marvel: Your solicit information sucks.

When is Bagley coming back? Certainly Bendis is the writer here, but...

Oh, y'know, whatever. Marvel sucks, and their books are too expensive.
