New Comic Book Recommendations | April 12, 2023
Superman: Lost #2
(W) Preist (A) Carlo Pagulayan
As Superman struggles to re-enter his life on Earth, we begin the story of his epic 20-year journey home with an encounter with spacefaring scavengers who transport the Man of Steel to an unnamed earthlike planet whose properties redefine the limits of his powers, while the world’s ecological and political turmoil beckons for his help.
The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country: The Glass House #1
(W) James Tynion IV (A) Lisandro Estherren
The Corinthian has been turned loose on our realm once more, and this time he sets his sights on the very root of rapacious American capitalism–Silicon Valley. His relentless pursuit of the Smiling Man will carve a bloody path from the C-suite of Prophet Capital to the bowels of a demonic nightclub, and no one will be safe from his reach. Not Ken, living large in the Bay Area since parting ways with Barbie all those years ago. Not Max, a nervous hedge fund manager on the rise who’s never quite fit anywhere. Not anyone. Multiple Eisner Award-winning writer James Tynion IV reunites with superstar horror artist Lisandro Estherren to bring you the nightmare-fueled follow-up you’ve been craving, a tale that will plumb the bottomless depths of our yearning for more at the heart of the American dream.
Danger Street #5
(W) Tom King (A) Jorge Fornes
What does a small-town murder have to do with the mysteries of the Multiverse? Lady Cop is on the case, but time is running out! Gods from beyond the stars are battling over the boy who could save all their lives, the Manhunter is stalking his prey, and, meanwhile, the Dingbats are tired of waiting for answers…and they’re about to take revenge into their own hands!
Guardians of the Galaxy #1
(W) Collin Kelly & Jackson Lanzing (A) Ken Walker
One year ago, the Guardians of the Galaxy were destroyed. Their optimistic future shattered by the betrayal of one of their own. Now they ride the space lanes of a lawless corner of the galaxy, trying to outrun their tragedy. Can they rediscover their heroism and humanity on the bleakest frontier? Can they forgive the failures of their past? Or will they fade into the dark, eternally unforgiven? Writers JACKSON LANZING and COLLIN KELLY (CAPTAIN AMERICA: SENTINEL OF LIBERTY) team up with artist KEV WALKER (PREDATOR) for a Guardians story like no other!
Miles Morales Spider-Man #5
(W) Cody Ziglar (A) Federico Vincentini
New foe RABBLE is superior to SPIDER-MAN in every way. With terrifying abilities, an army of deadly attack drones, and a new class of Spider-Slayer with the stolen powers of CLASSIFIED, she’s got MILES running scared, desperate to find a way – any way – of fighting back. Miles finally has a plan, and he’s ready to counterattack to save the ones he loves… but he’s just played into Rabble’s hand and thwip-d right into the jaws of her trap!
Phantom Road #2
(W) Jeff Lemier (A) Jodie Bellair
Dom is a long-haul truck driver who finds himself on a strange highway trip after he pulls an unusual artifact from the wreckage of a car crash along with his new companion, Birdie. Figuring out where they are is the first mystery…figuring out how to get out painlessly is the second.

The monumental ode to worldwide wish fulfillment completes its story with an exploration of THE FIRST EIGHT CENTURIES after the moment eight billion genies appeared on earth.
