What's on the Rack issue #4: New Comic Book Day Wednesday 27th January 2021.

It's Sunday, and that means it's time to see "What's on the Rack" for New Comic Book Day, 27th January 2021. There some good stuff coming this week - DC continues its Future State event, and while there aren't all that many issue #1s, there are a couple of excellent "jumping on" points for existing series.


CLICK HERE TO SEE THE WHOLE RACK


but if you're in a hurry,


HERE ARE OUR HIGHLIGHTS:



DEAD END KIDS: THE SUBURBAN JOB #1

(W) Frank Gogol (A) Nenad Cvitcanin (CA) Criss Madd

Seven years after the deadly events of September 11th, three teens struggle with the long-term fallout of that tragic day. But these former friends are brought back together when they find themselves in the crosshairs of a local drug dealer who's out for blood. Can they put their personal traumas aside long enough to work together and survive? No Heroine's Frank Gogol re-teams with Nenad Cviticanin for an all-new entry in the Dead End Kids saga.







FIREFLY #25

New Characters! New Enemies! The BRAND NEW VERSE starts here!


For the FIRST TIME EVER, it's the most-demanded Firefly story ever, as the series jumps forward in time after the battle with the Reavers that left Wash & Book dead.


Mal and the new crew of Serenity set a course for the EARTH THAT WAS!


That's right, fans will see what's happened to Earth for the first time in Firefly history - and that means all the rules are going out the window, in ways even Mal can't imagine…


A Perfect Jumping-On Point For New Fans!


I WALK WITH MONSTERS #2

Mentioned here for two reasons - first because we loved #1 so much. This really is Paul Cornell at the very top of his game, working with some astounding talent. Second, because it was actually out a couple of weeks ago but we didn't get our copies on time, and we don't want anyone to miss out.


In this issue the horrors of Jacey's past are unpacked as she and David walk into the lion's den. And what exactly is this monstrous form that David can assume?









LOOT #1

(W) Don Handfield, Richard Rayner (A) K. Lynn Smith

Scoot! Imprint! Orphaned at birth, serial kleptomaniac Emily 'Doe' was lucky to be adopted by Viola Jackson, the cop who kept arresting her.


Now grown-up (sort of), Emily D. Jackson works for her newly retired mom in loss prevention at a big box superstore by day and turns her passion for theft into part-time treasure hunting on the side.


From the writers of History Channel's Knightfall Don Handfield and Richard Rayner.







THIS WEEK'S "FUTURE STATE" TITLES:


DARK DETECTIVE #2

As the forces of the Magistrate zero in on Bruce’s location, it’s a race against time to unlock the secrets of their surveillance tech and take the fight to the very top! But is the knowledge that Bruce’s own legacy helped to enable the greatest authoritarian force the city of Gotham has ever seen too much to bear?

Also in this issue, Jason Todd is a haunted man. He’s working a job he hates on the violent streets of Gotham City as a mask hunter for the Magistrate! He takes contracts to catch villains—or heroes—and brings them in alive—mostly. But when the Red Hood gang reemerges, Jason must solve a mystery that could doom the city.





FUTURE STATE: BATMAN SUPERMAN #1

Back in the early days of the Magistrate’s occupation of Gotham City, Bruce Wayne found himself pushed to the edge like never before.

So calling the Man of Steel in for backup makes sense, right? Wrong. Gotham’s sinister overlords have already sprung the ultimate trap on the Last Son of Krypton… and with Kryptonian power at your command, no one can stand in your way!

Plus…where on Earth did Professor Pyg get a Kryptonite scalpel? Brace yourselves, because things are going to get gross in the caverns below Gotham…

FUTURE STATE: AQUAMAN #1

When Jackson Hyde accepted the mantle of Aquaman, he didn’t expect to also have to mentor Andy Curry, Arthur and Mera’s teen daughter. Nor did he expect that he and Andy would get sucked into the Confluence, an interdimensional nexus that connects distant planets and galaxies through the One Great Ocean.

And he certainly didn’t expect to lose Andy in the process of trying to find their way back home. Now Jackson’s not sure how long he’s been stuck in a prison on Neptune (five years?) or how many times he’s tried to escape (200 at least!).

But today Jackson saw something in the water that gave him hope for the first time in a long time, and his captors have no idea what he’s got in store for them.




FUTURE STATE: SUICIDE SQUAD #1

Suicide Squad enters the Future State era as Amanda Waller uses Task Force X to save the world and remake it in her image—but what happens when the team shows up to stop her?

And in the second story in this extra-sized issue, Black Adam, the immortal one-time champion of the wizard Shazam, rules the planet Kahndaq in the 853rd century. Can he save the future from a threat rooted in the past?











FUTURE STATE: LEGION OF SUPERHEROES #1

Whatever happened to the Legion of Super-Heroes? The team is no more, and the United Planets are in total chaos as one of the Legion’s own has turned on the entire galaxy!

Everyone is affected… and not everyone survived! Ultra Boy tries to put the Legion back together to face the future head on! Find out the fates of all your favorite Legionnaires like Shadow Lass, Triplicate Girl, Brainiac Five, and Bouncing Boy.

Plus, a shocking twist in the Legion mythology—and a long overdue appearance by the Legion of Substitute Heroes! It’s all here in a truly way-out tale by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist extraordinaire Riley Rossmo!
