Here's the Top 3 new items we are most excited for on New Comic Book Day this week:
Writer: Jason Aaron ; Artist: Mike Deodato ; Cover: Mark Brooks
Synopsis: When Darth Vader accidentally finds himself facing off against the Rebel Fleet on his own, the rebels will learn the true strength of the Dark Side of the Force! Once Vader crashes on a nearby planet, the Rebellion is willing to risk everything for this once-in-a-lifetime chance to take out one of their biggest enemies! Luke! Vader! Leia! Aphra! Han! Chewie! And all manner of Droid, good and evil!
Why We Are Excited: It's Vader unleashed! We are about to see why he is the most feared person in the Galaxy. And alone with his back against the wall...we can't wait to see him tap into all the hate and anger the Dark Side wants. This one-shot begins the crossover that will continue in both the Star Wars and Darth Vader books the next few issues.
Hero Hourly #1 (of 3) (21 Pulp Comics) $3.99
Writer: James Patrick ; Artist: Carlos Trigo; Cover: David Dumeer
Synopsis: Welcome to Hero Hourly! If Saul thought that working as a superhero would be any different than asking if you want fries with that, he was mistaken. Now he has to deal with bad pay, passive-aggressive bosses, and work politics. Well, we all have to start somewhere...
Why We Are Excited: Most of us hate our jobs, but love superheroes. But what if your job was being a superhero? Could we hate that? We're hoping this series has just the right mix of humor similar to The Tick and The Office so that we can finally have our answer!
Batman: Europa #1 (of 4) (DC Comics) $4.99
Writer: Matteo Casali, Brian Azzarello; Artist: Giuseppe Camuncoli, Jim Lee; Cover: Jim Lee
Synopsis: The impossible has happened and Batman is on the verge of being taken down by an enemy he cannot defeat: a virus for which there is no cure! And the only hope for his salvation is The Joker! Who infected Batman, what does the Clown Prince of Crime know, and how will the Dark Knight get that information? Together, the enemies crisscross Europe, desperate to find answers before time runs out. This first issue is pencilled and inked by none other than Jim Lee!
Why We Are Excited: Batman. Joker. Virus. Casali. Azzarello. Lee. Do we need to say any more?? I didn't think so.
