Happy New Comics Wednesday 10/12/15 - Twilight Children; Hernandez & Cooke!, Walking Dead, Uncanny Avengers #1, Star Trek / Green Lantern, Ms. Marvel edition!

 Vertigo is back! Every week from Oct.-Dec. Vertigo will be releasing 12 new series (some of them are mini series)! I've read several of them via comic store retailer PDFs and I'm here to say that Vertigo is back! A lot of what Image is today would have once been Vertigo series, and for some time, Vertigo looked liked an imprint of DC that wasn't that important to them, well starting with this Twilight Children mini series by Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets) and Darwyn Cook (Parker, New Frontier), Vertigo will be giving Image a run for the best in creator owned titles! Without saying too much about Twilight Children that would spoil its surprises, I would just say if you liked Paper Girls last week, Twilight Children works as a great companion to that series!

Uncanny Avengers with Deadpool was a lot of fun - I never thought I would type / say those words, but if you read this first issue, you'll see that I'm not jiving! Chewbacca was really good too! And the second issue of Brian Haberlin's Faster Than Light really amps up the suspense in this great new sci-fi series (and 32 pages for only $2.99)!
 Not picture her, but two of my favorite comics I read this week were Ms. Marvel and A Force! This issue of Ms. Marvel is a great look at how the cast of this comic deal with the end of the world 9or whatever is going on in Secret Wars) and this last issue of A Force is a great ending to this Secret Wars mini series before it comes back in December with the same creative team!
Batman! Hitch's Justice League of America, and the first issue of Superman: Lois and Clark - really good!
