Mar. 12 Comics Preview: Captain Marvel flies again, Hawkguy and his bro team up and Batman battles the Riddler

It’s always a big deal when another Batman comic comes out, but this month it’s outshone by the relaunch of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s marvelous Captain Marvel #1. Plus, more Hawkguy!

She’s back!

If you didn’t read Kelly Sue DeConnick’s first go at Captain Marvel – the finale feels like it was a generation ago – then you missed one of Marvel’s most enjoyable titles last year. Written in the day-in-the-life vein of Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye (Fraction just so happens to be DeConnick’s husband), Captain Marvel is a down-to-earth and feel-good approach to a high-flying superhero.

With art by David Lopez (for now) and a tradition of swapping in different off-beat artists every couple of issues, Captain Marvel has been, and will no doubt continue to be, a treat for the eyes and the intellect.

And she kicks a lot of ass, too.

Speaking of Fraction, he’s back again with Hawkeye #17.

And no, it’s not a crossover involving Saga‘s Prince Robot IV.

When last we saw Clint and Barney Barton, they’d taken a licking against the tracksuit mafia and their crazy clown boss. Somebody let the bad guys into the apartment building. But who?

This is as close to a climax as anything in Hawkeye is going to get, as it deals with a lot of elements set up in the very first issue.

Buy it, bro.

Batman #29

Dark City? Finished?

Is this the end of the Batman?

Okay, so we know it’s not, but forgive the questions: this issue is full of them.

After a brief foray into the future last month, Scott Snyder brings us back to the past in this issue to continue Batman’s epic clash with the Riddler.

I could tell you it’ll be awesome, but if you’re reading it, you already know that.
