A Comic Show – Fascist Batman And Socialist Captain America

Aaron Haaland of A Comic Shop in Florida writes,

Hey Fandom! I didn't record a video last week because about half of my new comic were shorted. They've been replaced, this we is good, and it's time to enjoy some new comics! Also, I'm getting super stoked for NC Comicon, November 13,14, and 15th in Durham! Charlie Adlard will be there, check it out and party with us: http://nccomicon.com/ !

I run down a few of last week's book's like how Warren Ellis' Karnak is essentially the show House (and that's fine). Captain America #2 has more of that tension between Steven and Sam…and maybe they'll be on opposite sides of Civil War II. Squirrel Girl is more of the exact same flavor of nut. Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a horror spy mash-up by the guy from the Image book Five Ghosts. And Chewbacca vs slavers is the best use of Chewie! I'm ready for a Chewie/Django crossover!

Justice League Darkseid War Batman one shot is worth reading even if you're not picking up Darkseid War! Seriously, Batman vs Joe Chill! Also, Batman & Robin Eternal is the story most bat fans have been wanting. It promises to answer why Bruce trained so damn many kids, and this issue gives a certain fan favorite some depth not seen since the old 52.

Image's Black Magick #1 is Nicola Scott's first creator owned work, and is basically a horror/cop procedural. I mean the cop badge has always been a pentagram… And while Rucka is a masterclass writer, it's Scott's art and the atmospheric coloring that make this one pop. Rick & Morty #7 gives us another fix to hold us over a little longer as we wait for season 3. And damn, Fight Club 2 #6 deepens the conspiracy down the rabbit hole!
