DC Comics First Issues Coming In May 2017

Good morning readers, we are here once again with another crop of the first issues that are coming out for this month and up to the DC Comics stuff. There aren’t a whole lot to scoop up but some nice annuals for sure along with some new launches. We are heading towards “Free Comic Book Day” which is Saturday and hopefully you’ve caught the post that I did with the few “Wonder Woman” film spots. You can learn some more about FCBD by clicking “HERE” and see the “Wonder Woman” clips by clicking “HERE”. Now let’s get into the comic books and as usual the press copy comes from the press office along with the images. I’ll close up with some opinion at the end. See you soon.

“Bane: Conquest” #1

BANE: CONQUEST #1: The co-creators of Bane make a triumphant return to the character, with a twelve-issue series that will push him to the limit! Bane is seeking to create a global criminal empire with the help of his original gang, Bird, Trogg, and Zombie. The Man Who Broke The Bat moves beyond Gotham to find new cities to conquer and new enemies to crush. He won’t stop until he stands at the top of the world of crime! For Bane, it’s all about CONQUEST.

“Bug The Adventures Of Forager” #1

BUG!: THE ADVENTURES OF FORAGER #1: An all-new Young Animal miniseries begins! Forager is just one of the Hive before he breaks out of his cocoon and finds himself in a mysterious house in an unknown realm. There he meets all kinds of strange creatures: a ghostly girl, a talking teddy bear and otherworldly weirdos that have literally jumped out of his worst nightmares. But these interdimensional oddballs are nothing compared to the evil General Electric, who is on the hunt for a reality-bending metal that could alter the fabric of life itself. To stay one step ahead of him and preserve the multiverse, Forager must travel through alternate dimensions to seek the metal and, hopefully, catch up with that cagey stuffed bear. If he does it, will he finally be able to distinguish himself as a New God? DC’s Young Animal celebrates Jack Kirby’s centenary with this new six-issue miniseries—and who better to tackle this task than the Eisner Award-winning Allred clan! Featuring scripts by Lee Allred (BATMAN ’66), art by Michael Allred (Silver Surfer) and colors by Laura Allred (Lady Killer), BUG! is truly a family affair.

“Injustice 2” #1

INJUSTICE 2 #1-2: The all-new prequel to the highly-anticipated Injustice 2 video game begins here! Original INJUSTICE writer Tom Taylor continues the story from the hit series INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US. Superman is imprisoned, and it’s up to Batman to put the world back together. But with Superman’s iron-fisted regime eliminated, other forces rise up to fill the void. And Batman doesn’t have a lot of allies left to help stop them.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Off the bat I can see myself picking up the annuals since I always love those and am pretty solid on the first issues of the latest batch of DC Universe Rebirth storylines. The Bane and Bug title I will likely be browsing from the shelves and since “Injustice” comes out in collected editions rather fast I will likely wait for a few issues to be collected and then pick it up. That’s all I got for this one but what do you readers think? Let me know in the comments section below.
