New comic book releases 7/18/12

New comic book releases for the week of 7/18/12. Here we are post SDCC 2012, one of the biggest and best for the annual event. Industry announcements were made regarding upcoming events in the comic industry and related popular culture. A few Con high-lights included the revelation that Neil Gaiman will return to produce a “prequel” of sorts to his seminal work on “The Sandman” is in the works was news that was well received. Also fans of Marvel ComicsThe Punisher” were treated to a surprise by actor Thomas Jane in the form of a fan film that captured the spirit of the character in aces. Cos-play was in full swing as fans dressed as their favorite characters and displayed a range of creative capabilities of attendees (check out the slide show for a sampling of some of the cool sights of this incredible event). Adventurous attendees participated in the “Walking Dead“obstacle course (check out the video to get a sense of the mayhem that unfolded at this popular activity) But, as always, the true heart of Comic Con is the opportunity to interact with comic industry creators/innovators such as Orlando Harding (writer and creator of Revolution Comics: NightStalker, which was reviewed here), Daniel Cooney (writer and creator of Red Eye Press: Atomic Yeti and the Valentine series), Tim Daniel (writer and creator of Image Comics: Enormous) and Michael Davis (Milestone Media co-founder and mediator of the Black Panel) It is the accessibility of these types of innovators that allows fans an opportunity to really connect with those who create some of popular cultures most enduring images and experiences.

You would think that coming off such a packed week, the comic industry might slow down to catch its breath, but this is not the case. We’ve got some incredible reads this week in the form of titles from some of the industries’ best. Over at Marvel Comics, we have the release of Captain Marvel #1 (creative team Kelly Sue DeConnick, Dexter Soy, and Ed McGuinness). DC Comics hits Wednesday hard with one of its staple titles Justice League #11 and the continuation of the origin of SHAZAM! (creative team: Geoff Johns and Jim Lee) Image Comics contributes with the next issue in the ongoing title Saga #5 (creative team of Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples) Lastly, Valiant Entertainment strong showing continues with X-O Manowar #3 (creative team: Robert Venditti, Cary Nord, Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic). So until next week stack them high and enjoy the read!
