Here’s a look at your Geek Picks for June 3rd, 2020!
I’m most excited for the Birds of Prey one-shot. Written by Brian Azzarello and printed under DC’s Black Label imprint. Plus the solicitation says the book is the length of a graphic novel (in Prestige format no less!). Pretty excited to see Azzarello write a story set in Gotham who’s main characters isn’t The Bat. A darker take on the BOP will be a nice change of pace from the team’s series penned by Connor or released at the beginning of Rebirth.
Writer: Brian Azzarello
Artist: Emaneula Lupacchino, Ray McCarthy
Black Canary’s life has spiraled out of control: her personal life is going through the ringer and her band is in crisis when an old flame resurfaces only to flicker out and set her on an all-new mission against an all-new opponent. The only thing she has to be grateful for is the fact that she’s not alone, as Huntress finds herself on a collision course with Black Canary’s quarry at Detective Montoya’s urging. Meanwhile, Harley Quinn has resurfaced outside of Gotham City and out of the Suicide Squad, with a new lease on life that is sure to make everyone else’s life more complicated.
And that’s only the first five pages of this high-octane, graphic novel-length one-shot that pushes the Birds of Prey far beyond their limits and puts them up against the most brutal crime syndicate to ever sweep into Gotham City! Hardboiled superstar writer Brian Azzarello and the bombshell art team of Emanuela Lupacchino and Ray McCarthy take the Birds into the no-holds-barred world of Black Label, and none of them will ever be the same! PRESTIGE FORMAT
Publisher: DC Comics/Black Label
This is a book I’m looking forward to, & it seems so is everyone else. If you didn’t pre-order it, be prepared to find it online. Of course with the popularity of the Amazon Prime series, there’s extra buzz.
Writer: Garth Ennis
Artist: Russell Braun
Twelve years after the events of The Boys, Hughie finds himself back home in Scotland where he intends to finally marry Annie in the company of friends and family. But the sudden appearance of a peculiar document sends our hero into a tailspin and threatens to bring the events of his nightmarish past crashing down on him in the worst possible way. There was one story about The Boys that Hughie never knew. Now, whether he likes it or not, he’s going to.
