Batman’s new neighbors hate his guts DC’s latest Dark Knight comic
Batman is broke. However billionaires don’t go broke like the rest people. Bruce Wayne might have needed to vacate magnificent Wayne Manor, however he handled to swing a trendy brownstone in Gotham appropriate with adequate space for a stripped-down satellite Batcave. There’s simply one issue: His next-door neighbors dislike him.
Well, really it’s not that much of an issue, because they’re all abundant assholes.
What else is taking place in the pages of our preferred comics? We’ll inform you. Invite to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of the books that our comics editor enjoyed this previous week. It’s part society pages of superhero lives, part reading suggestions, part “look at this cool art.” There might be some spoilers. There might not suffice context. However there will be terrific comics. (And if you missed the last edition, read this.)
For example, this one guy goes on a walk every day to look for gossip reporters to gripe to. As newly reformed vigilante Ghost-Maker tells Batman, he’s enraged by his greed. “You’re twice as rich as he is despite having just very publicly lost all of your money, and now he gets to be reminded of it every day.”
The first issue of Keanu Reeves’ long awaited Kickstarter darling BRZRKR is on shelves, and our own Charlie Hall quite liked it.
The DC Universe is changed forever (again), and Infinite Frontier #0 is a rather charming and snappy one-shot issue summing up the new every day of the newly infinite DC Comics multiverse.
Also, it’s 2021 and Wonder Woman still spins to change outfits, which is terrific.
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe hurtles towards America Chavez’s big screen debut in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Marvel Comics debuts the character’s newest solo miniseries from Kalinda Vazquez and Carlos Gómez. I wanted a second issue immediately after finishing the very first, in which America’s powers go haywire and she pays a visit to some brand-new characters: the caring household that took her in when she showed up on our Earth. Huge Superman vibes.
Scott Snyder’s most current initial series is Nocterra, about a kick-ass woman trucker who carries individuals and freight on an Earth where the sky turned black years earlier, and any organism left in the dark for more than 10 hours becomes a dreadful beast. Post-apocalypse stories loaded with almost real-science are type of ending up being Snyder’s thing, and Nocterra will likely be as unusual, weird, and action loaded as stories like Batman: Last Knight in the world or Undiscovered Nation.
Japanese illustrator Peach Momoko’s Devil Days is an Edo Duration reimagining of Marvel staples, and, well, the art is simply to crave.
Delighted Monday. Here’s a really naughty infant gargoyle.
