Marvel Comics has been delivering their “Marvel Now!” initiative for over a year now and I wanted to take a moment to share with you readers some of the brand new first issues that we shall be seeing in April of 2014. There is some exciting stuff heading our way with some long known about heavy hitters and some newer takes on the heroes that will continue to keep us on edge.
I’ve been posting broadcast blog items when Marvel Comics has new debut issues hitting the stands and after offering up so many summaries of the DC Comics offerings I felt that I should add their new first issues or beginning mini-series as each month goes along. That being said here are the premiere editions coming out this April from DC Comics “The New 52” grouping.
Keeping up with the Marvel Comics delivery of first issues that are a part of their now labelled “All-New Marvel Now!” campaign here are the titles that readers can count on being on the shelves for the month of March. These will join the batch of stories that are already in progress so you clearly have some back issue shopping or trade paperback seeking to do when time and financials allow.
So here we are in February and now it’s time to showcase some of the stuff that is coming out in a first issue format from the folks at DC Comics. There are concurrently running titles of course but I am only sharing those new launches and their descriptions along with the cover art from the press copy. Check them out below and I will return afterward.
BATMAN: JOKER’S DAUGHTER #1: Who is The Joker’s Daughter? What horrors lurk in the mind of this deranged lunatic, and why is there more to her than meets the eye? More than just a crazy person who stumbled upon The Joker’s face, more than just a woman with a mission, The Joker’s Daughter sees herself as a woman on the path of greed, dominance and lordship over the Gotham Underground. This special issue tells a sordid tale in the life of one of DC’s most popular new villains!
