By Randy Young and Chris Hunter

Bleeding Cool welcomes the return of Talking Comics, from Excalibur Comics, Cards, and Games in Shreveport, Louisiana, to discuss this week's upcoming books, speculating about where they are headed, and discuss their favorite storylines.

Hosts Randy Young and Chris Hunter say:

Thanks for pressing play!

It's another great week of comics for August 26, 2015, and this week we get to see the actual origin of the Arkham Knight in the new series, Batman: Arkham Knight Genesis #1, from DC Comics. Fan favorite writer, Peter Tomasi, takes over writing, and any time he touches anything Batman, it's pure gold. Do not miss out on this miniseries starting this week!

Zodiac Starforce #1 hits the shelf this week, and if you are a teenage girl or know one, then you will love this series. This series focuses on a group of young girls that have super powers and do what they can to save the world in between math tests. That's right. They're still in school, but they have enough power to fight off evil forces trying to destroy the world! Don't miss this brand new fun series from Dark Horse Comics!

Another very interesting story we get to see this week from IDW Comics is Drive #1. If you need something done, done right, no questions asked and no mess left behind, this is the guy that you call to get that done for you. Enjoy the pop-crime-noir story of the year!

Tons of other storylines hit this week, and we get to see the "Truth" storyline continue with Superman #43 hitting the shelf, and also, if you've ever loved comedy shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, then you will not want to miss Hank Johnson, Agent of Hydra #1, this week because it is written by the executive producer of Curb Your Enthusiasm, David Mandel. Take a look at the life of just an ordinary henchman and what goes on in being an underling for the evil corporation known as Hydra.

Also this week guys, we have another Question of the Week that focuses on Batman, and we want to know how you're going to deal with him in the comments below!
