New Comic Book Recommendations | March 10, 2021
(W) Stephanie Phillips, Matthew Rosenberg, Brandon Thomas & Chip Dzarsky (A) Eddy Barrows, Ryan Benjamin, Laura Braga, Max Dunbar, & Marcus To
Batman may be the biggest name in Gotham City, but there are lots of other heroes-and villains-who will get a turn to shine in Batman: Urban Legends, a brand-new monthly series tying into the biggest events in Gotham City. The series begins with these can’t-miss tales:
• Superstar writer Chip Zdarsky enters the world of Gotham City with celebrated Detective Comics and DC Future State: Robin Eternal artist Eddy Barrows for a six-part story chronicling Red Hood’s investigation of a new drug sweeping through Gotham. It’s a night that will change his life forever and put him in Batman’s crosshairs.
• Writer of the DC Future State “Grifters” story Matthew Rosenberg picks up where he left off, continuing from the pages of Batman #101! Superstar artist Ryan Benjamin joins the team as we learn why Cole Cash is in Gotham in a tale that hints at what Halo might be…and we also get Batman vs. Grifter-round two!
• New Harley Quinn writer Stephanie Phillips and DC Future State: The Next Batman artist Laura Braga join forces for a Harley tale set just before the launch of her new series. Harley’s determined to sort out her history with Poison Ivy-but first, she’ll have to find her!
• Coming off the DC Future State “Outsiders” tale, writer Brandon Thomas begins a three-part saga reuniting Black Lightning, Katana, and Metamorpho. But this reunion quickly turns into a confrontation with a figure from Katana’s past, in a story drawn by fan-favorite artist Max Dunbar (Champions, Dungeons and Dragons, Judge Dredd)!
(W) James Tynion & Sam Johns (A) Guillem March & Mariko Andolfo
Following the events of Infinite Frontier #1, The Joker is the most wanted man in the world! But the Clown Prince of Crime is several steps ahead of law enforcement and he’s on the run overseas. James Gordon, facing retirement, realizes this is the manhunt of his life and the last piece of a storied career…but what mysterious and deadly forces are also in pursuit of The Joker?
And in the backup story, following the events of the smash-hit Punchline #1, DC’s most controversial new villain navigates the infrastructure of Blackgate Penitentiary-while on the outside, Harper Row takes up the mantle of Bluebird to stop her brother from falling under Punchline’s influence.
(W) Chip Zdarsky (A) Marcco Checchetto
Matt Murdock is a killer – but while he’s serving his time as the masked vigilante called Daredevil, Hell’s Kitchen has suddenly been left without a guardian devil. Or it was until ELEKTRA NATCHIOS took it upon herself to protect Murdock’s neighborhood and his legacy as the NEW DAREDEVIL!
But she’s already got her work cut out for her: WILSON FISK remains seated as New York’s mayor, with TYPHOID MARY, THE OWL, HAMMERHEAD, and other lethal – and FAMILIAR – foes at his beck and call.
(W/A) Guillem March
Spanish writer and artist GUILLEM MARCH is best known for his ongoing, extensive work with DC Comics on Batman, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn and has worked as an artist on several graphic novels including the English editions of Monika with Titan Comics and The Dream with Europe Comics. Here, he takes up his pen for an edgy new FIVE-PART SERIES about a highly unconventional angel named Karmen and the young woman she takes under her wing when a case of heartbreak strikes hard. Packed with surprises and metaphysics, this gorgeously drawn series deploys tenderness and humor as it dives deep into topics that matter.
(W) Geoff Johns (A) Scott Kolins, Bill Crabtree & Nate Piekos
DC superstar Geoff Johns joins the Hammerverse with this creepy tale about a young boy who flees a kidnapper only to find himself trapped in the Cabin of Horrors and face-to-face with the mysterious Madame Dragonfly.
