The GoD List: Comics For April 2, 2014
Henchman21   |  

The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “The First Avenger” Henchman 21 and “Sentinel of Liberty” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of April 2, 2014. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

For me, it’s not the best week of comics ever, as it seems like there are not a ton of books I’m excited about coming out. On the other hand, I can look at this as a chance to try some new titles that I might not usually check out. This is also a week to celebrate one writer’s accomplishment for staying on the same series for a really long time. So, don’t worry, it’s April 2nd and I am not making any jokes today, because I never joke about The GoD List!

DC Comics Goes Steampunk In February With ‘New 52’ Variant Covers
Ryan Midnight   |  

DC Comics Steampunk Variant Covers

In February 2014, DC Comics will be bringing the increasingly popular sci-fi subgenre, steampunk, to their New 52 lineup in the form of variant covers. The covers will span their most popular titles from Action Comics and Batman to Justice League and Wonder Woman. A collection of artists including Dave Johnson and Klaus Janson will be providing the covers.

The covers will feature all the trademarks of steampunk, which is a sci-fi subgenre that is generally set in an alternate Victorian era where steam and clockwork have become the predominant technology. These covers feature it all – from dirigibles and steam-powered machines to cog-driven robots and brass button covered apparel. So, so many brass buttons!

You can check out the full list of comics getting these variant covers and their artists below, along with previews of the covers.

The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “All-New,” and “Afterlife with” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically.

John Layman To Take Over ‘Detective Comics’
Hunter Camp   |  

Detective Comics by Jason Fabok

A few days ago, we reported that the current writer/artist of Detective Comics, Tony Daniel, would be leaving the title after the #0 issue that is scheduled for this September. Well, in a surprising turn of events, DC Comics announced both a new writer and artist for the title. Chew co-creator John Layman will be taking over the writing duties while Batman: The Dark Knight art collaborator Jason Fabok will be taking on the art. This truly is an interesting turn of events.

While an excellent writer, the last book I expected to see Layman on was Detective Comics. Detective is usually known as the darker of the two mainstay Batman books, and while I’m sure the creator of the quirky detective comic book Chew has a sense of darkness in him, the majority of his work I’ve read has quite a bit of humor, which is not something commonly found within the pages of a standard Detective comic. Another interesting note here is that it will be the first DC comic that Layman has written, and it’s at the same time one of the most high profile comics and characters from the company. Good for him, honestly, I love Layman’s work and I can’t see what he’s got in store for my favorite character. It is just a little odd, though. Especially when you consider the pairing of the artist.

Tony Daniel Leaving ‘Detective Comics’ This Fall
Hunter Camp   |  

Detective Comics #1 by Tony Daniel

Tony Daniel announced Friday via Facebook that he would no longer be contributing his creative talents to the Batman-starring Detective Comics after September.

Daniel noted in his Facebook post that his last written issue will be Detective Comics #12, while his art will last appear in Detective Comics #0 in September. Daniel goes on to say that he will still be working with DC on new projects that have yet to be announced, but expects the public to hear about them starting next week and leading into San Diego Comic-Con.

One of the more interesting things to take from this news is that when Daniel is referring to his run, he says “Batman/Detective” as in he may be done with the character for the time being. The reason that this is interesting is that, for the past several years, Daniel has been in some way involved in major storylines and titles regarding Batman. Starting with Grant Morrison’s Batman run, Daniel was either on writing or art duties on RIP, Battle for the Cowl, Batman, and Detective Comics with last year’s DC relaunch. He’s been involved in Batman’s world for a very long time, so for fans of the character and Daniel’s work, this is a big change.

Comic Books Including First Appearances Of Superman and Batman Score $3.4 Million
The Movie God   |  

Action Comics No. 1 & Detective Comics No. 27

Every once in a while one of the ultra-rare copies of the Holy Grail of comic books, Action Comics No. 1, surfaces somewhere and scores massive amounts of money when auctioned off. Nic Cage had one in almost perfect condition that was returned to him 11 years after being stolen last year, which went on to bring in $2.1 million.

But what happens when you blow over 50 years of dust off of that old box in the attic and not only is there a copy of Action Comics No. 1, which introduced some dude named Superman to the world, but a whole collection of old comics that also includes Detective Comics No. 27, the comic that introduced another dude named Batman? Coins rain from the skies, ladies and gentlemen.

Hunter Camp   |  

Detective Comics #1

DC Comics announced today that its recently relaunched title Detective Comics by writer/artist Tony Daniel is getting a fourth printing, which makes it the second “New 52” series to get this many reprintings.

So people really like this run of Detective Comics, huh? Well, I’ve gotta say that even though I wasn’t expecting much from the series, I’ve been really impressed thus far. And so if you’ve missed the Tony Daniel-conducted Detective Comics train, you’ll be getting another opportunity to catch it.

Digital Comics Deal: Batman 101 Sale
Hunter Camp   |  

Batman 101

DC Comics and ComiXology are offering a really sweet deal this weekend with 101 of their Batman (or Batman related) comics for just $.99 a piece.

The deal only lasts through this weekend — Saturday, September 10, and Sunday, September 11, 2011. So get your Bat-devices ready, because you’re not going to want to miss this.

You can download select titles from Batman-related comics and stories for the iPad, iPhone, any Android device, the iPod Touch, and your own personal computer. Some of the titles on sale are Batman Beyond, Batman: Year One, Batman: The Long Halloween, Batman and Robin, and many more.

This is a really great deal, and although DC did a Batman 101 sale over the New Year’s holiday, this sale is more inclusive with more titles. Also, considering potential new readers from the recent DC Comics relaunch, it’s a great place to get a hold of a lot of classic Batman comics that some people may not have read. Me, though? I’ve read and have copies of all these comics, so I’ll be missing out on the sale. However, you should definitely buy all the comics they’re offering.

Oh, you don’t know what comics they’re offering? Well, here’s a handy little breakdown of all the titles that are on sale.

The GoD List: Comics For July 27, 2011
Hunter Camp   |  

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “The Second City Saint” Henchman21 and “The Murfreesboro Madman” MK2FAC3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of July 27, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

On last week’s The GoD List, the evil Henchman21 messed up his death trap when he mistakenly put boiling hot voile into a pit that was to fill with boiling hot oil, but this week he has developed another dastardly plan to destroy the dynamic MK2FAC3. This week, “Two Ton Twenty-One” tries to abolish “THE FAC3” when he’s strapped into an egg chair and is forced to listen to nothing but 70’s and 80’s prog rock until he sinks into a Floyd Hole. Will “THE FAC3” be able to escape the demented deathtrap of “THE HENCH”? Or will “THE SECOND CITY SAINT” finally be able to exact revenge for “THE WEEK OF TWO FAC3S”?

You can give this edition of The GoD List a CGC rating of 9.6, as long as you promise not to read it.
