Wizard October 2008 highlights

Wizard Magazine Issue#204 October 2008Now that my new November 2008 Wizard has arrived, it’s time to replace out my October 2008 Wizard. But before I let it go, I thought I’d quickly skim through it one last time and make some notes:

  1. Trolling Online – page 6
    1. comment from LORDD3R3K “I highly recommend going back and rereading Morrison’s run [on Batman] from the begining. Seriously dude, done in one sitting, the series has an amazing flow.
    2. “Man, what a great end for the first arc. Booster Gold is the bomb. It’s sad to see Geoff [Johns] and Jeff [Katz] leave, but the next arc seems fantastic.” – AJORTON
  2. “Whatever happened to the Caped Crusader?” by Neil Gaiman coming in January
  3. Kevin Smith’s 3-part Batman: Cacophony coming in November
  4. Geoff Johns and Ethan van Sciver’s Flash: Rebirth
  5. Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk finally received the final script from co-creator Damon Lindelof, putting an end to the series that started in December 2005.
  6. The Pull List – pg. 16 – Ghostbusters Manga Vol.1 (Tokyopop) – “A host of short stories starring your favorite Ghostbusters as they get slimed in true manga fashion.”
  7. Trade Show (pg. 86)
    1. Superman: Krytonite – Darwyn Cooke and Time Sale (Sept 10) – $24.99(though it should be worth noting there is one review so far on Amazon for this, and it’s an average rating.)
    2. Batman: The Black Glove – Grant Morrison – Sept 3
  8. Batman: Broken City – Brian Azzarello & Eduardo Risso.
  9. Cleburne seems a bit intriguing. “The riveting and controversial Graphic Novel based on a true story” comes out in November 2008. It’s by Murphy, Milgrom, and Brown. And it revolves around Confederate General Patrick Cleburne who wants to free the slaves so they can fight. More on rampartpress.com
