Last Minute DC Previews for ALL NEW 52 Feb. 1 Titles

Last minute previews of ALL the NEW 52 #6 issues going on sale this week, including ACTION COMICS and DETECTIVE COMICS.


Justice League #6 Slips Into Fifth Week In February

Retailers have been complaining about the DC New 52 fifth week. When a month has five Wednesdays, with all the New 52 titles slotted into the first four weeks, it leaves kids books, Vertigo titles and the lower selling non-52 comics, which don’t quite have the punch to the pocket that the New 52 comics do. So retailers lose out.

Well, they have found a partial solution for this February and its five weeks.  And also helping DC out of a little shipping schedule issue.

Justice League #6 will slip from February 15th to February 29th, a whole two weeks. January’s Justice League #5 had performed a similar trick, slipping one week from the 18th to the 25th.

Hwever, after issue 6, Jim Lee will take a three issue break, which I would expect would see the schedule of DC’s premier New 52 title recover, in time for his return. Jim Lee and his wife have recently welcomed a new child into the world, and as I recall, the schedule of pretty much anything goes to pot for the first three months.

And retailers have a DC book they can sell a whole shedload of at the end of February.

We saw a few unlettered pages from Avengers Vs X-Men #0 earlier today, by Brian Bendis and Jason Aaron, drawn by Frank Cho. Well, here are some more. Lettered. And featuring Cyclps scolding Hope for being, basically, Batman with a jet pack.

See, that right there should be a spinoff series.

Comic Book Men Advertises With The Walking Dead In Comic Stores

One’s a reality TV show about men who work in Kevin Smith’s comic shop. The other is a harrowing ongoing zombie drama. But both are from AMC, both air on the same night and both involve comic books. Which means… piggy back advertising!

Here are some posters, stickers and banners appearing in a comic shop near you soon.

“Putting the Ker Pow into the Ker Ching.” Really?  Seriously AMC, have ten on me.

The greatest powers on earth are at their fingertips.

You don’t need a cape to be a superhero. Just work in a comic store.

They don’t sell comics. They sell dreams.

Selling comics, it’s in their jeans.

Seriously, didn’t you always want to work in a comic store when you were a kid?

They’re not just salesmen. They’re supermen.

The Walking Cred

In the kingdom of the geek, the comic shop clerk is king.

Want to unlock the secrets of the universe? Just ask.

Hey look everyone, it’s Kevin Smith.

One of those has to be better, doesn’t it?
