DC Comics First Issues Coming March 2018

Hello again my friends and yes, you have arrived at yet another comic book summary. I’m hitting you hard with the new DC Comics launches that are coming out this March and several of them follow the recently told “Milk Wars” storyline that featured the Young Animals line of characters. Let’s have a look. The premise and art come from the DC resources but the closing editorial is all me. Here we go.

“Immortal Men” #1

THE IMMORTAL MEN #1: “THE END OF FOREVER” part one! There is a secret history to the DC Universe of heroes who have protected humanity from the shadows since the dawn of time…and who can live forever. Enter the Immortal Men! The team, headed by the Immortal Man, has waged a secret war against the House of Conquest for countless years—but Conquest has dealt a devastating blow. When their base of operations, known as the Campus, is savagely attacked, the Immortal Men must seek out their last hope—an emerging metahuman known as Caden Park! Caden’s emerging powers may be able to ensure the Immortal Men’s survival—but will Conquest get to him first?

DC Comics First Issues Coming February 2018

So here we are in February and according to one groundhog, the winter is going to last for another six weeks. Of course the other one said its an early Spring but who can really trust what these critters feel will be the case. It’s been a promising January in terms of all things music and mass media but now its time to get into the new month with a wide assortment of the comics that are hitting the racks from the DC Comics side of the fence. As usual, the overall premise and cover art comes from their resources but the editorial closing is all me. Let’s begin with a couple of titles that were re-solicited for this month after being expected last month.

“Sideways” #1

SIDEWAYS #1: During the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, high school junior Derek James accidentally fell through a rift into the dark matter dimension! Now, as Sideways, he can create rifts in midair to leap through dimensions at will! But with that much power comes great liability—and cracks are starting to form in the fabric of the space-time continuum…

Holy Time Jump Batman! I cannot believe we are already in November. Did you readers have a fun Halloween yesterday? If you dressed up for any party or did it just in spirit of the day I hope you had an awesome time. So yeah this month of November is ready to rock our socks with the geek stuff because we have three things to enjoy in terms of the shows and films with “Thor: Ragnarok” opening at the end of the week and then “Punisher” on Netflix and then it’s the “Justice League” film which we should celebrate a little louder on a post about DC Comics. While we are on that topic of “Justice League” and comics, there are a number of variant covers being released this month and I shined a spotlight on them in an earlier post that you can find on THIS LINK. Since today is also New Comic Book Day you are going to want to double check with your retailer when you pop in for your titles this week if any of those covers interest you. Okay let’s get on down to the nitty gritty. As usual the press copy and images come from the DC Entertainment folks but all this fine editorial stuff comes from me – Here we go.
