NEW SUPERMAN BOOKS FOR THE WEEK OF 01/11/2017

Below is a list of Superman related comics that I bought this week.

  • Action Comics #971
  • Supergirl #5
  • New Super-Man #7
  • Red Hood and the Outlaws #6
  • Titans #7
  • Justice League vs Suicide Squad #3 (from last week)

I am behind on my reading so Action Comics is the only one that I managed to get to at this point.  I have written a review which will be up later on the Superman Homepage.  I really need to get caught up on New Super-ManRed Hood and Titans but time has not been on my side recently.

Additionally Comixology has released the following Superman back issues digitally.  They are:

  • Action Comics (1938) #s 13, 14, 739 and 740
  • Adventures of Superman #s 552 and 553
  • DC Comics Presents (1978) #s 39 and 40
  • Superman (1987) #s 129 and 130
  • Superman: The Man of Steel (1991) #s73 and 74

Comixology (and by extension DC Comics) have been phenomenal about getting more Superman content in their back catalog.   There are still some serious gaps such as Adventures of Superman issues 445 – 450 and Action Comics issues 643-658 and, randomly, 729 but a lot of the Post Crisis material is there for the download.  I would love to see more Golden and Silver Age material up for sale but I guess I’m going to have to be patient for that.

The fact that more of the Superman Blue era keeps getting released also makes me happy.  They have gotten to the month where all of the DC books had huge close-ups of the characters’ faces on the cover, which means they are almost to 1998.  Hopefully this means that the Superman Red/Superman Blue and Superman: Forever specials will be available sooner rather than later.

The physical comics I got this week were bought at First Edition Comics in Peachtree City, GA.  Jared runs a great shop so if you are on the south side of Atlanta definitely pay him a visit and barring that check out his site.
