It’s been a while, but we are back!!! And what a great time to be back. There are a lot of great comic picks for the week of April 13, 2022. At the top of the list is the first issue of Image, kicking off the comic publisher’s 30th anniversary. This is followed by the penultimate issue of Tom King’s Batman/Catwoman maxi series. Finally, Dynamite presents an entirely new look at a classic heroine with the Immortal Red Sonja by Dan Abnett. With so many great titles, let’s just dive on in. Here are our comic picks of the week for April 13, 2022.
Topping our list this week is Image #1. Thirty years ago, some of the industries top creators, including Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Todd McFarlane, and Marc Silvestri left their jobs at the Big 2 publishers, DC and Marvel, and started their own venture in comic book publishing. They created Image Comics, a publishing company where the creators owned and controlled their content. To celebrate their 30th anniversary, Image will present a series of stories across 12 issues by some of the publisher’s past and current talent.
Also out this week is the penultimate issue of DC Comics’ Batman/Catwoman. Selina Kyle is wanted for the murder of the Joker and Commissioner Dick Grayson is certain her daughter, Helena – aka Batwoman – knows where she is. This is bound to work out well.
