Battle of the Atom also rolls on in X-Men #6, with the future X-Men teaming up with the present X-Men to stop the other future X-Men from messing with the past X-Men! You got all that, right?

Perfect Pulls: It’s finally here! The moment Bat-fans have been waiting for is upon us, as Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo bring us the most important chapter of Zero Year yet. In a massive, double-sized issue, we finally get a look at the New 52’s first everything; first Batsuit, first Batmobile, and first appearance of Bruce as Batman! If that’s not enough for you, Forever Evil gets it’s first tie-in with Forever Evil: Arkham War, bringing the villains of Arkham and Blackgate Prison against each other in a war with no Batman to stop it! This week isn’t just about Batman, though. Lantern fans haven’t been forgotten, as Lights Out gets its second chapter in Green Lantern Corps #24, which promises to be as explosive as the first.


Walking-Dead-115-NYCCImage Releases

America’s Got Powers #7 (Of 7)
Bushido #2 (Of 5)
Chew #37
Ghosted #4

Peter Panzerfaust #15
Rocket Girl #1
Sidekick #3
Think Tank #10
Three #1
Walking Dead #115

Perfect Pulls: War has come to The Walking Dead! Celebrate ten years of the comic (yes, ten years!) with the next huge event, All Out War. The Kingdom clashes with Negan’s army, with Rick’s crew in the middle of it all, begging the question: who will survive? Wait, no, this is Walking Dead… we should be asking whether anyone will survive at all! But don’t let the zombie horde keep you from seeing two cool new books from Image this week as well. Three is Kieron Gillen’s next masterpiece, telling the story of three slaves attempt to survive against the wrath of 300 Spartans, in what promises to show the other side of some of history’s greatest warriors. Rocket Girl couldn’t be more different, instead telling the tale of a teenage cop from the future coming back to 1986 to investigate crimes against the future, where she discovers her “future” shouldn’t even exist! Moral of the story? Image fans have a lot to be excited about today!

Perfect Pulls: I don’t normally include Archie comics in my list of indie publishers, but lately I’ve been noticing they’ve been putting out really great books that break the mold of what you’d expect from them. This week, they’ve got a book so insane that I had to officially bring them into the Comic Corner: Afterlife with Archie! Yes, that’s right; zombies have come to the Archie universe, and if that doesn’t make you notice Archie for the first time nothing will! But that isn’t all from the indies this week. Dark Horse’s Shaolin Cowboy promises to prove that “the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a chainsaw,” which is a promise I can get behind. Also, fans of horror comics will want to grab Dynamite’s Cryptozoic Man, from the guys behind AMC’s Comic Book Men!

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, October 9th. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
