Short entry this time, for a couple of reasons. For one, I’m packing up for a long weekend at a music festival, and don’t have much time (no
time for pictures either, alas). For another, Comixology seems very tied up
with the sale it’s running today, and there really aren’t any new expansions of
the lines… it’s all continuations.
One thing of note, though, was the Comixology redesigned the interface in time for the sale. My monitor now only shows 3 comics to a row
instead of 9, but each comic has the beginning of a shot description, and also
a button that lets you buy it immediately. Which is a big improvement in the
sense that you don’t have to pull every comic up to select and buy it – it
saves a lot of browser steps. On the downside, it’s a little tougher to get a
sense of everything that’s being released at a glance.
It’s all one-issue continuations, with no surprises, so I’m just going to list titles.
DCU: All-Star Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Jonah Hex, The Origin of the JSA (free), Superman/Batman. (Six titles; JLA, for some reason, isn’t on here.)
Vertigo: DMZ, Fables, Sandman, Y: The Last Man. (Four titles; all of last week’s entries represented.)
Wildstorm: Three of the Core Four (Authority, Stormwatch, and Gen 13 – no Wildcats), Ex Machina, Planetary, Supernatural: Rising Son
(okay, this second Supernatural series was sort of a debut!) and X-Files. (Just
Zuda: Deadly and Safe Inside get continued. (Two titles.)
Now, the Zuda blog also says that High Moon is scheduled to be continued this week, and Street Code should debut today. (And, it turns out, it regularly
announces the coming week’s releases, too! How convenient!) I suspect that the
Comixology people have their hands full with the sale, and that there’ll be a
few stragglers over the next day or two. Including, most likely, JLA and
Wildcats. Otherwise, at only 18 titles, this is DC’s smallest week yet.
(Actually, even with the four books I’m pretty sure are missing, it’s still the
Anyway, I’m off to pack. If I see any updates, I’ll put ‘em in the comments!
