Comics shipping 5-29-08

by Matthew Price Modified: April 22, 2013 at 2:19 pm •  Published: May 27, 2008

Just a reminder – due to the Memorial Day holiday, comics ship on Thursday this week.  If you go looking for “Final Crisis” on Wednesday, it’s not going to be there. 

That said, what a beefy week of comics.  The much-anticipated “Final Crisis” #1, of course.  The original Toyman returns in “Action Comics” #865.  The second part of Grant Morrison’s “Batman RIP” ships.

Marvel’s not being left out of the party, either, as the grand finale to Joss Whedon and John Cassaday’s “Astonishing X-Men” hits this week, in “Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men” #1.  Mark Millar goes Marty McFly in taking us back to “1985.”

On the indy front, Dave “Cerebus” Sim releases his Holocaust-themed “Judenhass.”  

Full list and commentary after the break.

ACTION COMICS #865
I’m loving the Kevin Maguire covers, and “Action Comics” has been outstanding since Johns took over.

ALL STAR SUPERMAN #11

Good time to be a Superman fan — “All-Star Superman” is also an amazing take on the Man of Steel.  The penultimate issue, and I have to say, I think the 12 issues of “All-Star Superman” will be one of those runs people will still be reading 10 years from now. (No, not because the last issue will be that late.)

ANGEL REVELATIONS #1 (OF 5)

By the creative team of Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Adam Pollina.  This is a Warren Worthington series, not Liam/Angelus.

FINAL CRISIS #1 (OF 7)

Please, please be good.  Really looking forward to this one. DC says: Witness the historic start of the final chapter in the Crisis trilogy that could only spring from the mind of Grant Morrison — Final Crisis, featuring stunning art by J.G. Jones (52 Covers)! Worlds will live and heroes will die in this epic tale spanning the beginning and end of the DC Universe!The entire Multiverse is threatened as the mysterious Libra assembles an army of the DCU’s most terrifying super villains. But what is the ultimate plan, and who will live to find out?

FIREBREATHER SERIES #1

FUTURAMA COMICS #37

GI JOE  AMERICAS ELITE #35

GIANT SIZE ASTONISHING X-MEN #1

The long-awaited conclusion. After this, we can all debate where this rates along the all-time “X-Men” runs. (My thought: Unless Whedon totally blows the ending, it’s near the top.)
