The Flash #47 – $2.99
Writer Joshua Williamson | Artist Howard Porter (DC Comics)
This is the start of the biggest Flash story in years: Flash War. While the conflict between Barry Allen and Wally West has been brewing in this series for a bit, this is where it kicks off in earnest. For those interested in reading Flash War but are worried you won’t know the full story because you haven’t been following along up until this point, worry not. We’ve already read this issue, and while it does make a couple references to past events, it’s largely a clean, accessible jumping-on point that reads like the start of a big event comic. If you’ve always debated who is the better Flash – Barry or Wally – then strap in and prepare to find out.
Detective Comics #981 – $2.99
Writer James Tynion IV | Artist Eber Ferreira | Cover Eddy Barrows (DC Comics)
Writer James Tynion IV started his run on Detective Comics with a mission to establish a new team of Gotham’s next generation of heroes trained by Batman and Batwoman. He succeeded wildly, telling a complex, emotional story that challenged each member of the Bat-family in impossible ways. There were dark moments of tragedy and loss as well as inspiring moments that reminded us what it means to be a hero. With this issue, Tynion delivers the final chapter of his run, closing things out with a team that looks a lot different from the one we started with, which acts as a stark reminder of the dramatic journey the group took to reach this climactic point.
Lumberjanes #50 – $4.99
Writers Shannon Watters, Kat Leyh | Artists Dozerdraws, Brooklyn Allen | Cover Kat Leyh (BOOM! Studios)
Lumberjanes has reached a landmark 50 issues! And to celebrate we’re getting an oversized anniversary issue that includes a short story illustrated by co-creator Brooklyn Allen. It’s actually quite the feat for any comic book to successfully reach 50 issues these days, especially one that’s not from the Big Two, so we tip our hats to the whole gang for reaching this special milestone and thank them for giving us so many fun memories out in the woods with its cast of quirky, lovable characters.
