TNTM: Top 10 comics list for December 2016

It’s a tie! The Top 10 comics for December are an even 50/50 split between Marvel and DC. None of the smaller publishers were able to crack the top 10 this month.

DC Comics again relied heavily on Batman related titles. All 5 of their top 10 comics have Batman in them. Batman #12 & 13, Dark Knight Master Race Book 7, All-Star Batman #5, and Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #1. Not sure if this is a statement about the popularity of Batman or if DC is just having trouble elevating another character to Bruce Wayne’s level.

2 of Marvel’s top 10 titles are in the Star Wars Universe. Star Wars #26 kicks off the Yoda story. We get to learn a little about the diminutive Jedi’s early exploits. Doctor Aphra #1 gives one of the newer Star Wars characters her own book. She is like Indiana Jones of outer space. She is accompanied by 2 re-purposed Imperial droids, 0-0-0 specializing in torture) and BT-1 (assassin droid). You’ll also see more of Black Krrsantan, a Wookie bounty hunter.

There are also 2 Marvel titles dealing with big fights in Inhumans vs X-men #1 and Civil War II #8. The last Marvel title in the top 10 is Hulk #1 which sees She-Hulk take over the mantle of “Hulk” as she wrestles with her growing inner rage.

Let us know what titles you are reading and why you believe they should be in the top 10. Just leave a note in the comments section.

TNTM: Doctor Aphra to get Own Star Wars Title

If you are like most of us nerds, you like anything dealing with the Star Wars franchise (not counting Jar-Jar). There is an interesting character in the Star Wars Universe that will be getting her very own title.

She is a human female archaeologist who was recruited by Darth Vader after the Battle of Yavin.  Aphra is accompanied by her two assassin droid companions, 0-0-0(Triple-Zero) and BT-1 (Beetee).  Aphra has become a very popular character in the Star Wars comics.

One of the things making the Doctor Aphra comic book series special is that she’s a character who debuted in Marvel’s Darth Vader #3 comic book. This makes the series the first time Marvel has released a Star Wars comic book centering around a character who originated somewhere other than onscreen canon. (It’s not the first non-movie character comic, however; Star Wars: Kanan focused on the character from the Star Wars: Rebels animated series.).

I am looking forward to a long and entertaining run for Doctor Aphra.

BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT!

Following the blockbuster finale of Darth Vader #25, the fan-favorite character begins a new journey in STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA #1 – the new ongoing series coming this December! From superstar writer Kieron Gillen (Darth Vader) and fan-favorite artist Kev Walker (Marvel Zombies) comes Marvel’s first ongoing series starring an original character created in the comics!

Following her time in the clutches of Darth Vader, Doctor Aphra has barely escaped with her life. If he ever learns of her survival, he’ll hunt her to the ends of the galaxy. But for now, it’s time for a return to what she does best. With the droids 0-0-0 and BT-1 in tow, she’s off in search of rare artifacts from the galactic center to the Outer Rim and everywhere in between. Aphra’s got debts to pay after all. Just as long as she can stay one step ahead of the Empire, some Bounty Hunters and just about everyone else in the galaxy!
