Top 5 New Comics for October 10th, 2012

By Vince

Batman #13

DC Comics
Story: Scott Snyder
Art: Greg Capullo

DC Says: The Joker returns in ‘DEATH OF THE FAMILY’!

He crippled Batgirl. He killed Robin. What will The Joker do now that he’s returned to Gotham City? What must Batman do to protect his secret identity and that of those who fight alongside him?

Vince Says: Snyder was amazing in his first year of Batman and Capullo’s design for Joker is just plain creepy. This should be awesome.

Fantastic Four #611

Marvel Comics
Story: Jonathan Hickman
Art: Ryan Stegman

Marvel Says: FINAL ISSUE!

Jonathan Hickman’s groundbreaking run comes to an end in this climactic issue!

Vince Says: The finale of Hickman’s epic three-year saga. Of course this makes the list.

Point of Impact #1

Image Comics
Story: Jay Faerber
Art: Koray Kuranel

Image Says: A gripping, provocative four-part crime series from acclaimed writer JAY FAERBER and stunning new artist KORAY KURANEL.

It begins with one woman’s murder and branches out to follow the investigation by three people with personal connections to her: her husband, an investigative reporter; her lover, an ex-soldier; and her friend, a homicide detective. Her death will change all of their lives.

Vince Says: I like crime/mystery comics, and getting the clues from three different perspectives should be fun. I’m also interested in the comic’s pure black-and-white art. Not greyscale like The Walking Dead; just black and white.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #10

IDW Publishing
Story: John Barber
Art: Livio Ramondelli

IDW Says: OPTIMUS PRIME IN SPACE!

Orion Pax-the former OPTIMUS PRIME-follows a rogue group of DECEPTICONS into one of the greatest mysteries ever to face the AUTOBOTS! Time will bend-and heroes will fall!

Vince Says: I’ve been really enjoying this current run of Transformers comics and it’s nice that they’re taking time away from the core story to check in with everybody’s favorite Autobot. Plus, I just really like that cover.

Uncanny Avengers #1

Marvel Comics
Story: Rick Remender
Art: John Cassaday

Marvel Says: THIS IS IT! The greatest era of the Marvel Universe starts here! From the ashes of AvX an all-new, all-different Avengers assemble!

Dive headfirst into Marvel NOW! as the superstar dream team of Rick Remender (Uncanny X-Force, Venom) and John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men, Captain America) deliver high stakes action in UNCANNY AVENGERS #1 – sporting a jaw-dropping cover by Cassaday!

No fan can miss the blockbuster debut of an all-new Avengers team featuring members from all across the Marvel Universe…a team uniting Avenger and X-Man alike!

Captain America begins his quest to create a sanctioned Avengers unit comprised of Avengers and X-Men, humans and mutants working together – so why is Professor Xavier’s dream more at risk than ever?

The funeral of one of Marvel’s greatest heroes! The first attack of the most loathsome villain in history will quake the Marvel Universe forever! But following the devastating events of Avengers VS X-Men, can Captain America pull together a team that can get along for its first mission?

Vince Says: I think Marvel said enough on this one.
