Something For The Weekend: Your Regular Weekend Round-Up

by Olly MacNamee

So, what was everyone reading this week on our site? Here’s your ten to take away for this weekend.

  1. News of new titles begin to appear, offering up a look into the future and the return to some kind of new normal. Two new tie-ins to Scott Synder and Greg Capullo’s Dark Nights: Death Metal were announced this week here.
  2. One of our popular new columns, New To You Comics, in which  our Tony Thornley and Brendan M Allen catch-up over comic book series one or the other haven’t read before, looked back at Donny Cates, Mark Reznicek and Geoff Shaw’s Buzzkill series here.
  3. The guys also looked back at The Valiant mini-series covered this past week here.
  4. We had a few interviews you may have missed this week, starting off the week with a chat with Curt Pires, co-creator of new troubled teen superhero saga, Youth. A far cry from the Young Avengers, that’s for sure, Check out the full interview here.
  5. Serial killer horror, Nailbiter, is due to return from Image Comics this summer and we caught up with creators Joshua Williamson (The Flash) and Mike Henderson (Old Man Logan) here.
  6. Duncan Jones’s forthcoming graphic novel project, Madi: Once Upon A Time In The Future was in the news again as he teased it’s launch this coming May 19th. Obviously as a site that broke this story, we’ll be awaiting Tuesday May 19th for more news on a book that will cap off a trilogy of stories that started with the Moon film and continued with Mute.
  7. On the TV front, we got news of new casting for The Mandalorian season 2 here.
  8. Star Trek announced a spin-off from Star Trek: Discovery with the announcement of Star Trek: Brave New Worlds, which EiC Erik Amaya broke here. That Captain Pike certainly made an impression with fans it would seem.
  9. New Mutants once again gets a new release date here.
  10. And, finally, bringing it back to comic book new, we said a sad goodbye, this past week, to writer and editor, Marty Pasko here.

A week of some highs and some lows, but one in which we were able to bring you more previews that in recent weeks. We’ve a long, long way to go yet with this current pandemic, but it’s good to see – whether rightly or wrongly – comics getting out there again.
