New Comics Released 2/20/2013

New Comic Books are released in retail shops across the United States every Wednesday, and every week the Degobot makes it to his local comic book store (Floating World Comics in Portland, OR) to purchase a small stack of comic books.  Comics aren’t cheap, so the Degobot has to be selective on which comics he chooses to spend his hard earned money on.  The decision to buy or not buy a particular comic is based on the book’s creative team, character, publisher, and cover.

The Degobot is excited to read the following comics today:


JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA # 1 (by Geoff Johns and David Finch)
Geoff Johns expands the Justice League franchise this week by launching the brand’s third title. This League works for the American government, a team of C-listers led by Col. Steve Trevor. Johns has a talent for bringing out the best in obscure characters, and is already writing the “main” Justice League book. David Finch has been drawing Batman for the last couple of years, so it’ll be nice to see him draw some characters outside of Gotham City. (Published by DC Comics)


SAGA # 10 (by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples)
The newest issue of Saga is never a disappointment, and the Degobot expects issue 10 to bring the high quality storytelling this series is known for. Main character’s Marko and Alana have been searching for their lost babysitter Izabel the last few issues, and if this week’s cover is any indication of what happens in the story, it looks like they find her!

Nova 1

NOVA # 1 (by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness)
Marvel NOW! goes cosmic this week with the release of “Nova”. Creators Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness have worked on several character focused runs together including, Superman, Batman, Red Hulk, and Cable. Each of these series has been a critical and commercial success; “Nova” should be no exception. Digital readers should help keep their local comic store in business by purchasing a print version of this issue; it comes with a code for a free digital copy, at no extra cost. (Published by Marvel Comics)

Avengers # 6
Captain America # 4
