DC Direct should really make a Ragman costume. That would be perfect to wear while lounging around the house in the winter. In the meantime, the only Ragman-related product DC has available for purchase this week is Ragman: Suit of Souls #1, a seemingly random, $4 one-shot by writer Christos N. Gage and artists Stephen Segovia.
Batman Beyond #5: Dustin Nguyen did a really nice Unknown Soldier cover for this issue, didn’t he?
What’s that you say? Hush? In Batman Beyond? No way.
Bruce Wayne: The Road Home: Catwoman #1: Coupled with Bruce Wayne: The Road Home: Commissioner Gordon #1, that will make a grand total of six books featuring appearances by the resurrected Bruce Wayne that have been released before the conclusion of Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne. I wonder how many there will end up being before the sixth an final issue of the miniseries about Bruce Wayne’s return actually ships? The Catwoman book is by Derek Fridolfs and Peter Nguyen and the Commissioner Gordon one is by Adam Beechen and Szymon Kudranski.
Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus Vol. 1: This CLAMP manga about an adorable grade school girl, her pretty outfits and her cute stuffed-animal looking guardian spirit trying to recapture lost magical cards isn’t for everyone, but if this is up your alley, this looks like a pretty good format to read it in —a $20, 575-page trade paperback.
Carnage #1: Carnage is back! Surely this means something about cyclical popularity, nineties nostalgia or the state of the direct market, but I’m not sure what—probably not anything good! Zeb Wells is writing this five-issue series, Clayton Crain is drawing it, and Marvel is charging $4 for each issue. There are four different covers for this title, and Carnage himself is only on two of ‘em. Preview here.
