Beginner’s Luck

Batman / Superman: The Archive of Worlds   Kingdom Come    Swamp Thing

The DC Start Here Sale runs through Monday, 1/15.

This is one of those sales where they give you a discount on volume one and hope to entice you into buying volume 2 for full price. We seem to recall that’s similar to how Comixology originally pitched Comixology Unlimited to publishers.

We’ll be contrarian and look at some volumes that stand a little better on their own, as opposed to being a cliffhanger.

Batman/Superman: The Archive of Worlds – Gene Yang / Ivan Reis – Fun-forward adventure as Batman and Superman chase a mystery across parallel, film-themed worlds.

Batman The Long Halloween Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale – The classic tale of Batman chasing a killer who only strikes on holidays… and the case’s toll on Harvey Dent.

Doom Patrol: Book One – The first few arcs of the Grant Morrison / (mostly) Richard Case run on Doom Patrol. Good enough for TV, it seems, although we liked the book better.

JLA Vol. 1 – The first two arcs of the Grant Morrison/Howard Porter run on Justice League.

JSA: The Golden Age – A forgotten classic as James Robinson and Paul Smith take the post-WWII Justice Society through the horror of McCarthyism. This might not read quite as dated as one might initially think…

Kingdom Come – Mark Waid and Alex Ross explore a dystopian nightmare that’s also a critique of the 90s grim’n’gritty fad. (90s? OK… maybe that fad lasted a little longer…)

Superman Vs. Mongul – A bit more under the radar, this would be the original DC Comics Presents encounters between Superman and Mongul, mainly by Len Wein and Jim Starlin. Plus a certain Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons tale.

Swamp Thing: The Bronze Age, V.1 – The original Swamp Thing run by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. One of DC’s shining lights of the early 70s.

Above and Beyond

Batman Beyond: Industrial Revolution  Batman Beyond  Batman Beyond: The Final Joke

The DC Batman Beyond 25th Anniversary Sale runs through Monday, 1/8.

Feeling old, yet?

For those coming in late, this is the comics continuation of the ’99-’01 animated series that finds young Terry McGinnis stepping in as a new Batman for the elderly Bruce Wayne in futuristic, vaguely cyberpunk Gotham.

Batman Beyond hasn’t had a constant presence in comics, but there was a concerted effort to keep it in print for 10 years and Dan Jurgens had a pretty respectable run. 66 issues across the two titles is a lot more than most people manage these days!

Here’s the chronology of the titles:

And a reminder that Monday is last call for the annual holiday Marvel Masterworks sale.
