Talking Comics – Discussing This Week's Upcoming Titles From We Stand On Guard To Barb Wire, Secret Wars, Red Skull, And More!

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!

There's one book that's going to be huge this week and that's going to be We Stand On Guard #1. There's no doubt that it's going to be another smash hit for Brian Vaughan and Steve Skroce, probably even along the lines of Saga. We definitely see this first issue going to multiple prints, so you need to get a first print asap! What's it about? Well, it's about a group of Canadian military survivors trying to survive an invasion from another country…specifically the United States!

Not only do we get Secret Wars #4 this week, but we get another brand new series from Battleworld with Red Skull #1! This story focuses on the Red Skull legend in Battleworld, a legend that seems to keep growing and growing! Now, Magneto, Winter Soldier, and Lady Deathstrike will go into the Deadlands to find out the truth…and it may just cost them their lives!

Superman is tested even more this week with the Truth storyline that's going on through all of the Superman titles. Who are Superman's true friends now? Who really is covering his back? More is explored this week with Action Comics #42!

Don't miss our Question of the Week! We're talking DC Comics and we want to hear from you!
