By writer Mark Waid & artist Chris Samnee | Marvel
Is there a more dependable creative team in comics right now than Mark Waid and Chris Samnee. The duo already worked their magic on Daredevil and Black Widow, and now they’re turning their attention to Captain America. Even without reading the book, it’s pretty much a given that this issue will rank among the best of the week.
It’s a very crucial time for the Sentinel of Liberty. Steve Rogers is coming off the events of Secret Empire and dealing with the profound damage his doppelganger has done to his reputation and the world at large. Waid and Samnee will explore Cap’s cross-country journey as he attempts to reconnect with the American people again.

DC gave the Flintstones a postmodern makeover when they kicked off their new Hanna-Barbera line last year. It’s only fair they do the same for George Jetson and his space-age family. Following the example of The Flintstones, The Jetsons will deliver a major overhaul to the usual formula. In this series, Jane is a respected NASA scientist, Rosie the Robot contains the consciousness of Jane’s mother and George himself is the only man alive who’s not enamored with modern technology. We’re looking forward to another clever, thoughtful update to an iconic cartoon property.
By writer Wes Craig & artist Toby Cypress | Image
Artist Wes Craig has earned himself a legion of fans thanks to his work on Deadly Class, but can he manage the same feat as writer? That’s what we’ll find out as Craig teams with artist Toby Cypress for a new creator-owned horror series. The Gravediggers Union is set in a goofy world where the titular organization is the only thing standing in the way of the apocalypse. Image has no shortage of great horror comics at the moment, but we’re hoping this series’ sense of humor will set it apart.
By writer/artist Enrico Marini | DC
Superheroes aren’t nearly as popular in the European comics scene as they are in the US, which is why it’s always fascinating to see the great masters take on a big-name superhero property. Italian artist Enrico Marini (Gipsy, Le Scorpion) is tackling the biggest hero of them all with Batman: Dark Prince Charming. And between the unique sense of style and the intriguing plot twist introduced in this book, there’s a lot to set Dark Prince Charming apart from your typical Bat-book. It’s also interesting to see DC follow the European publishing model for this project, releasing the story in the form of two 60-page hardcovers rather than a traditional miniseries.
