Hey there comic book fans, here is just a quick note about the February offerings from DC Comics. As you can see there are NOT a lot in terms of the first issues which is all that we focus on here in our own solicitations posts. Take a look and then its some closing thoughts from me after the cover art and provided press copy from their press side peoples.
HARLEY QUINN VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL #1: Love is in the air in New York City! The planet’s richest bachelor, Bruce Wayne, is in town for a charity auction – and the highest bidder gets a date with Mr. Tall, Dark, and Brooding! Good thing Harley Quinn just came into some money (please, whatever you do, don’t ask how). But can Bruce really spend a night with Harley without her learning how he spends his nights?

SUICIDERS #1: In the post-apocalyptic city of New Angeles, killing isn’t just a crime – it’s entertainment. When the “big one” finally hit the West Coast, Los Angeles was left in ruins. And when the U.S. government decided to cut the city loose, things went from bad to worse. To survive, L.A. did what it does best: It turned survival into entertainment. Now, thirty years later, the city of New Angeles is thriving once more thanks to the blood sport known as SUICIDERS – a TV series that combines the spectacle of hand-to-hand combat with elaborate, high-tech obstacles that test each competitor’s ability to survive. But these competitors have an edge: They’ve been freakishly enhanced by drugs and technology. The results are both marvelous and monstrous, as the man called The Saint begins to rise above his fellow Suiciders. SUICIDERS is a dark, post-apocalyptic epic that tells the story of a strange, brutal world, written and illustrated by Lee Bermejo, the #1 New York Times best-selling writer/artist behind JOKER, BATMAN: NOEL, LUTHOR and BEFORE WATCHMEN: RORSCHACH.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll probably be passing on “The Suiciders” myself since my monthly comic book allowance is set on a handful of regular titles these days but there is always room for a little bit of whatever Harley Quinn is up to. She just cracks me up and has become super, mega popular over the last few years. Go to Comic Con once and you will know what I mean. So that is all I have to say on the matter and I will see you again in this category soon enough for more comic book solicitations postings but now it’s back to the Metal stuff. Let me know what your thoughts are on these offerings even though there are a meager amount of launching titles.
