Every Monday on G&C I’ll be previewing the new comics I’m most looking forward to in the coming week. These are the comics that I expect will be fun, exciting, and worth your monies. If you think I’ve missed anything, leave a note in the comment section and let me know what you’re eagerly anticipating. Here’s my top three, and then a short list of other books to be aware of.

Personally, I felt like issue three of “The Midas Flesh” moved a little bit slower than I would have liked. No complaints this week; “The Midas Flesh” 4 throws the warp drive into hyper-gear as the action picks up and story gets darker and deeper.

I’ll admit it, I am a little biased; I love the “Bravest Warriors!” If you’ve never heard of them before, “Bravest Warriors” is a crazy fun cartoon created by Pendleton Ward (the same guy from “Adventure Time”) and available on the Cartoon Hangover channel from YouTube. The episodes are each five minutes long and seriously you guys, you owe it to yourself to go check out that awesomeness  before you read any further. Seriously. Go.

Dark Horse Comics’ #WheresSerenity teaser released in August

In just 14 short episodes, Joss Whedon was able to create an instant cult classic that has left fans begging for more Firefly since its premature cancellation back in 2003.  Fortunately, fans will be able to follow the old gang in the form of a comic book series published by Dark Horse Comics entitled Serenity: Leaves On the Wind, which will release 29 January 2014.

Star Wars

You heard right, after over two decades of Star Wars being published by Dark Horse Comics, the franchise will be making the move to Marvel in 2015.  Disney, who purchased Lucasfilm in October of 2012, has announced that they intend to move the Star Wars publishing license to Marvel in a statement sent out by Mike Richardson (Founder, Dark Horse Comics) and Jeremy S. Atkins (Director of Public Relations,  Dark Horse Comics).

‘Hawkeye’ #7 cover by David Aja

In January, Marvel will release a special issue of their best-selling book ‘Hawkeye’ as a tribute to the many inspiring acts of real-world heroism on display since Super Storm Sandy ravaged much of the East Coast.  Matt Fraction, the writer of the ongoing series, promises to donate all of his royalties from the issue to the hurricane relief efforts by the American Red Cross.  This is just the latest example of a charitable cause championed by the comics industry in recent years.

If you could not make it to New York Comic Con last month, you missed out on two great comic art shows: the 2nd Annual NYCC Charity Art Auction to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and DC Entertainment’s “Darkness & Light” exhibition and education tour to benefit relief efforts in the Horn of Africa.  However, if you’re in the New England area you may be inclined to visit the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA.  Showing now until February 24 is famed comic illustrator and painter Alex Ross’ exhibit, “Heroes & Villains.” (more…)

I’m sure many of you saw the recent pilot episode of Arrow.  Here is a breakdown of what I thought.

Zan and Jayna.  Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.  Professor Charles Xavier and Cassandra Nova.  Psylocke and Captain Britain.  Some are good, some are evil, and some hang out with a blue monkey named Gleek.  Twins are everywhere in comic books, and it turns out I’ve got one, too.  Cooler yet, my twin brother Shaun loves Comicology as much as I do, and he’s hoping to provide a place for a dialogue on and deconstruction of the comics industry with his new project: “ComicsTheory.”
