Comic Book Wednesday: August 9th Picks

Happy Comic Book Wednesday!

What's everyone picking up this week? I can't believe Gotham Academy Second Semester is ending, the last issue is out today. It's a cute little series and I really surprised that it's not continuing.

Now as for my list, it consist of my regular group of books (Scooby-Doo, Wonder Woman, etc.) but there is a special Star Wars issue: Rogue One: Cassian & K2O that I will be picking up.

DC Comics

Detective Comics #962

Book: Detective Comics #962



Ascalon, the deadly artificial intelligence created by the Order of St. Dumas, is ready to replace Azrael and purify Gotham City... and all that stands in the way of the world's most flawless computer brain is the mind of Batman himself!

Gotham Academy Second Semester #12

Book: Gotham Academy Second Semester #12


'The Ballad of Olive Silverlock' finale! It all comes down to this. With Olive poised to raze the city to the ground, Maps is determined to make one final crusade in the name of friendship. But life isn't school, and if she fails... all of Gotham could pay the price! Don't miss the final issue of this beloved series!

Scooby Apocalypse #16 (Lupacchino Variant Cover Edition)

Book: Scooby Apocalypse #16


It's life or death! Faced with the choice between the two, the warring groups led by Scrappy and Scooby must join forces in order to survive the menacing mega monster! Will they survive the fight? Or will they be absorbed into the belly of the beast forever?! Then, in a special bonus story... international mammal of mystery, Secret Squirrel, is back in action!

Scooby Doo Where Are You #84

Book: Scooby-Doo! Where Are You? #84


Medieval theme restaurant Joust in Thyme has it all: minstrels wandering between tables, live jousting tournaments...and the terrifying ghost of an 800-year-old knight! There's only one way Sir Scooby and Sir Shaggy can uncover the face beneath the mysterious knight's helmet: by raising swords and lances to take on the ghost in a tournament themselves!

Wonder Woman #28 (Frison Variant Cover Edition)

Book: Wonder Woman #28


'HEART OF THE AMAZON' part three!

With the immediate threat subdued, Diana thought she could take time to help Etta Candy recover from her wounds...but will her presence put Etta in even more danger?

Marvel Comics

Star Wars Rogue One Cassian & K2SO Special #1 (Larraz Variant Cover Edition)

Book: Star Wars: Rogue One: Cassian & K-2SO Special #1


Cassian Andor is one of the top intelligence agents in the ranks of the Rebel Alliance, ably assisted by his reprogrammed Imperial security droid, K-2SO.

But naturally, the two weren't always on the same side of the Galactic Civil War.
Now, for the first time, read the story of the pair's first contentious meeting! It is very likely not to go well.

Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #23

Book: The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #23


Remember last issue, when we went to the SAVAGE LAND, the nature preserve full of dinosaurs?
Guess what? We're still in the amazing SAVAGE LAND, and there're even MORE dinosaurs!

Will Squirrel Girl FIGHT a dinosaur? Will Squirrel Girl fight TWO dinosaurs? Will we come up with really excellent reasons why these fights would take place, reasons that both justify the fights while also telling the story of what led to this dinosaur-punching smashup: a story which, even though it stars dinosaurs and Squirrel Girls, contains within it the chance for us to recognize, perhaps for the first time, our most personal and secret selves??

Of course we will; that's literally our job.

This issue also features jokes and a super villain who's causing major problems, so it's the complete package, really.
