Oh shit, they let us do another one. We didn't plan this far ahead. I am so sorry. The title is probably dreadful too. OT creation was a mistake.

Superman #10 By Tomasi, Gleason, Gray (Nov 2nd) - or the first time, the Man of Tomorrow and the Boy of Steel team up with the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder in a father-son adventure you won’t want to miss! This is going to be the best book. Prime team back in action. Gleason/Gray gonna slay.
Sheriff of Babylon #12 By King, Gerads (Nov 2nd) – I am not reading the solicit, final issue of season 1 of this book. Its been amazing. I am sure this will be heartbreaking. You will be buying it if you are already reading the series. If not buy the trades. Its a great fucking book.

Given all the bizarre, unexplainable things that have come into her life over the last couple of days—robot men and talking ambulances and a guy who literally thrives on negative energy—surely this new and surprising world she has uncovered can’t be any weirder. Right?
Mother Panic #1 By Houser, Edwards (Nov 9th) - Meet Violet Paige, a celebutante with a bad attitude and a temper to match, who no one suspects of having anything lying beneath the surface of her outrageous exploits.

Valiant comics presented by our resident Valiant super-fan LaunchpadMcQ

HARBINGER RENEGADES #1
Six months have passed since the battle with Harada left the Renegades broken. Now, as the
ramifications of these events are felt across the globe, Kris Hathaway must gather the Renegades once more to face the consequences of their actions and protect the Psiots they’ve turned the world against. I was told to expect some trippy Doom Patrol-type stuff.

SAVAGE #1
Welcome back, Turok! After being unable to regain the rights to the Gold Key characters when they relaunched, Valiant has been slowly adding facsimiles to those characters to its universe. This doesn’t really sound like an actual solicit, so what is this comic actually about? DINOSAURS!

GENERATION ZERO #4
Generation Zero further investigates the town of Rook, Michigan as more of its secrets begin to unravel. But really, we’re mostly tuning in for Gamete the Super Fetus and the rest of Van Lente’s crazy cast of characters. Yes, there’s a character that is a fetus. Yes, you should be reading this book.

BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #2
It’s Bloodshot vs Bloodshot vs Ninjak, as the infection of New York City by the nanite virus continues. Can Bloodshot win against 8 million of himself and convince Unity this is totally not his fault? There’s one thing you can expect - there’s going to be a lot blood!

BRITANNIA #3
After realizing that this book is pretty good despite the gratuitous amounts of old man nudity, tensions are high as Antonius’ investigation is delving deep into the supernatural and he must work with an unlikely ally to uncover the mystery of these demons. However, will his mind be able to handle the strain? Hey, who would have thought Milligan in 2016 was a good thing?

FAITH #5
2016 Election Special! In a weird move that calls back to that Amazing Spider-Man issue with Obama, Faith meets Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton! And while her alter-ego is the one who will be meeting Clinton, it is her superhero persona who will inevitably save the day! What impending threat will Faith have to save the Presidential nominee from, at a crucial moment with all of America watching?




Giant Days #20 By Allison, Sarin, Fleming (Nov 2nd) - The second year begins! When Esther, Daisy and Susan discover that every piece of furniture in their new home was destroyed by the previous occupants, they head to IKEA, where things get complicated.
Grand Passion #1 By Robinson, Feister (Nov 16th) - Doc's a cop. Mabel's a crook. They're two wayward souls, fated to fall in love at first sight... even as Mabel swears to kill Doc if it's the last thing she does. 
Josie & The Pussycats #2 By Bennett, Deordio, Mok (Nov 2nd) - As the girls look to play their first gig outside Riverdale, they run into some unexpected complications. Can they bust up a crime ring, help the criminals see the error of their ways, and jump-start the band's music career, all through the power of rock, friendship, and, Melody assures us, entirely legitimate comic book science?
Lumberjanes Gotham Academy #6 By Clugston-Flores, Matthews, Matthews, Ayoub (Nov 9th) - The Lumberjanes and Gotham Academy kids have finally got to the truth of things, but is it too late to fix the spell? 
Motor Girl #1 By the incredible Terry Moore (Nov 2nd) - When Samantha's junkyard is visited by a UFO looking for spare parts, she is only too happy to oblige. But when word gets out she is a reliable source, Sam's booming alien business catches the attention of an Area 51 investigator determined to shut her down!
Tank Girl Gold #2 By Martin, Parsons (Nov 9th) - There may be no "I" in team but there's certainly a "U" in onslaught! Break out your jock straps and crash helmets, folks; we're going full contact for theTank Girl Gold Super Sports Special!

Whether you read webcomics, ongoings, or even if you just stick to trades-- everyone is welcome to post their thoughts here. Unless you are a Valiant fan, if you are a Valiant fan please find somewhere else to talk about their comics, thank you for understanding.

Members in ComicsGAF are expected to follow the NeoGAF TOS just like everyone else. I know it can be hard, but try and be excellent to your fellow members guys (Except Zombine, he deserves the shit he gets).


We've been having some talk of spoilers a lot lately, so I figured it's a good idea to have a section for it.
-If you must post a spoilery panel or a page from a comic (recent or otherwise), please link to them with a proper spoiler warning.
-Please at least allow one week before posting unmarked spoilers.
-Think about whether or not you would have liked to have a moment spoiled on you before reading it. Use discretion when posting spoilers. You know people love Saga/Deadly Class try not to openly post huge spoilers even if they are months old. Link to them and tag them properly.
-Announcements/Solicitations are not spoiler worthy, no need to tag
- Don't spoiler tag images, it doesn't work on mobile so its not reliable.
-MARK YOUR SPOILERS

A book you didn't know existed until I posted about in the thread. Thats how important it was to you.

Glitterbomb deserved love.

Actually I came across it when looking over the January solicits. I saw the cover for #3 and was like ! Nice cover!! Johnathan Hickman!?!? #1 in November!!??!? Also it's now coming out on Nov. 30th. It will get delayed again and make this entire chain of events completely irrelevant.

My descent into Valiant continues, as I just finished Harbinger Wars in the Valiant reading order. Man, was kind of weird seeing the exact same scenes keep repeating (which they did manage to thankfully largely keep consistent) over all 3 titles. And now it's time to continue on from the Bloodshots and Harbingers into all kinds of different stuff, looking at the list!

Wonder if the book Mark Russell pitched is another Hanna Barbera book or an actual DC character. Don't know who I'd put him on tho. Maybe Green Arrow if Percy wasn't killing it.

Manifest is a great book. I'm a few issues behind. I need to catch up and stop buying quite so much of this Marvel fiddle-faddle.

Messi, real talk, great job on that OP. I read through the whole thing. Loved how many comics you showcased. Really helps me as someone who doesn't actually read single issues to keep track of what's going on.
