DC Comics logo 2012Mayo es un mes curiosón para Geoff Johns. Por un lado calienta motores para ése chachievento que se sabe desde hace bastante tiempo que es la Trinity War que cambiará la vida para siem… ¡¡bah!! Lo de siempre, vamos… Y por otra parte se despide de la serie de Green Lantern tras casi una década escribiéndola. Y la verdad es que le doy la razón. Desde el Nuevo 52 la verdad es que no me tiraba demasiado ya el tema de los anillicos de colores. Dice que es para centrarse más en la JL. Y también le doy la razón, porque la verdad es que de la Liga lo que más leo y disfruto es el complemento (la historia de Shazam) y la serie tampoco es que me mate demasiado. Sólo nos queda sentarnos a esperar qué sale de todo ésto.

Por otra parte, la siempre interesante Tierra-2 de Robinson nos ofrece un anualico con la aparición del nuevo Batman de ésa Tierra. Si no estáis siguiendo la serie no sabéis lo que os perdéis. Echadle un ojete, que merece la pena. Aunque no es el único annual de éste mes. Por ahí tenéis pululando unos cuantos.

Otra curiosidad que nos aparece es el tomete tapadurizado de HARLAN ELLISON’S® 7 AGAINST CHAOS que si bien el argumento no me dice ni fu ni fa, se trata de PAUL CHADWICK!!! Y sólo por éso a la saca directamente.

Y en el apartado tomero, como era de esperar, nos sacan en formato Deluxe (tapa durilla y tamaño superior a la grapa) el Before Watchmen. Y lo hacen emparejando series, quedando Ozymandias con Crimson Corsair y el one shot de Dollar Bill (me da igual), MInutemen con Silk Spectre (¡¡me lo pido!!), Nite Owl con Dr Manhattan y el par de numeretes de Moloch (que me trae sin cuidado) y finalmente Rorschach con el Comediante (que tambien me da lo mismo). Así que enhorabuena por DC por colocar en un tomo las únicas dos series que realmente me apetece tener y en un formato que queda bien. Ya me pensaba que iban a sacar un Absolute con todo y fastidiarme. De todas formas le doy tres meses o así para sacar el mentado Absolute. Ya lo veréis…

Siguiendo con los tomos, y dejando aparte los de las series actualmente publicándose, mi gusto personal me hace decantarme por ésa sexta entrega de Crisis en Tierras Múltiples (para que acompañe en la estanteria a las otras cinco) y el tomo de historias de Batman escritas por Archie Goodwin que toca resolicitar de nuevo. Y por si alguien no lo tiene todavía, es un buen momento para pillar los Año Uno de Robin y Batgirl en un solo tocheche y a un precio razonable. Os aseguro que merecen muy mucho la pena.

En Vertigo nos encontramos con nueva serie de Scott Snyder, que desde que lo ha petao con Batman, American Vampire y otras lindezas se ha convertido en el niño mimado de la editorial (o lo parece) y Unwritten prepara el camino para su crossover con Fables (miedito me da)

En el apartado de tochazos es Vertigo la que se lleva el gato al agua éste mes. Entre el Omnibus de Animal Man de Morrison y el de Promethea de Moore. Y ahora viene la curiosidad. El primero tiene 712 páginillas reuniendo del 1 al 26 de la serie más la historia del Secret Origins. El segundo dice tiene 496 páginas y recoge los 32 números de la serie original. ¡¡MAL!! Si hacemos la división nos da 15 páginas y media por grapa. Evidentemente hay una errata en la cantidad de páginas. Lo que imagino que no será una errata pero hace que nos llevemos las manos a la cabeza es que el primero cueste 75$ y el segundo ¡¡EL DOBLE!! 150$ nada más y nada menos… Susto sustoso de los gordos… Aunque igual lo hacen porque como no es apta para menores, pues se aseguran de que no lo compren poniéndolo a precio de encuadernación con piel de unicornio e impresión con sangre de elfo… digo yo.

Por otra parte, si sois de los que aún no tienen el Preacher de Ennis ahora os comienza la edición tebeperizada a 20 pavos el tomo. Lo único es que son seis tometes, por lo que al final se quedan en 120$. Casi casi que lo mismo que pillar el cofre famoso que costaba el famoso cofre que sacó Planeta (y del que ignoro si está todavía disponible por alguna parte).

Como siempre, el listado completo aquí mismo:

We are faceless. We are limitless. We see all. And we do not forgive.
Who
defends the powerless against the GREEDY and the CORRUPT? Who protects
the homeless and poverty-stricken from those who would PREY upon them in
the DARK OF NIGHT?
When those who are sworn to protect us abuse
their power, when toxic government calls down super-human lackeys to
force order upon the populace…finally, there is a force, a citizen’s
army, to push order BACK.
Let those who abuse the system know this as
well: We have our OWN super humans now. They are not afraid of your
badges or Leagues. And they will not be SILENCED.
We are your neighbors. We are your co-workers. And we are your children.
