Who’s Getting What This Week?

WHO'S GETTING WHAT THIS WEEK? 2013 LOGOComic Picks 8.28.13

All Star Western #23, Angel & Faith #25, Green Hornet #5 & Thumbprint #3

There’s a lot of really good comics coming out this week.

That said, I am wondering why there has to be a Director’s Cut comic for virtually every DC comic book Scott Snyder writes? Don’t get me wrong– he’s an excellent scripter and all… But does every comic he creates deserve to be given this hallowed deluxe treatment?

And in doing this only for Snyder, how are these Director’s Cut comics supposed to make the rest of the DC writers feel? How about a Director’s Cut for one of John Layman’s excellent issues of Detective Comics? Or one of Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray’s unsung monthly gems? I could go on and on… But you get the idea.

My point is, if you are going to call a creator (and his/her output) out for being excellent… Why not also extend this favor to some of the other underrated comics in your line– to show fans you support all your creators equally?

By doing so, you also make these Director’s Cut comics look like less of a cash grab foisted on the fans of already popular writers and artists… And more like an effort to shine a light on some more of the genuinely talented creators working hard for your company.

Ack. I feel like I just wasted ten minutes of my life writing the above editorial– the ideas seem to make far too much sense for this lenticular cover loving iteration of DC Comics to ever consider them seriously.

Ummm… So what are YOU getting this week?

    Maybe something else to go along with these two comics. Don’t X-Men and The Wake usually come out on the last week of the month? Maybe they’re late?

      This week, “The Wake #1 Director’s Cut” is being released instead of a new issue. I don’t know why they’re doing that. Either it’s a pure ca$h grab stunt, or Vertigo is trying to stall a bit in order to give a few more weeks for the creative team to write and draw without too much pressure.

  5. Extinction Parade #2
    Occupy Comics #3
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #25
    Deadpool #15
    Thor God of Thunder #12
    Fables Vol 7 Deluxe Edition HC

    When is/was the Strangers in Paradise being Omnibus released?
