New Comics for 4/1

Happy April Fool's Day! It just occurred to me that if Marvel should have solicited Ultimate Hulk vs Wolverine #3 for today to see if fans thought it was a joke or if the issue was really going to come out.

So here's what I'm planning on getting today. Strangely enough, my list is very DC-heavy this week...

FLASH REBIRTH #1 $3.99 - I wasn't planning on getting this title because I think Barry Allen should stay dead. There were a couple of reasons though, why I changed my mind. One, it's only 5 issues. Two, I want to see what Geoff Johns, who is a very accomplished writer and one I trust, is going to do with a character that hasn't been relevant for over 20 years.

HAUNTED TANK #5 $2.99 - Last issue for this modern war tale/ghost story from Vertigo Comics. Still enjoying the heck out of it, but now that it's over I want to reread all 5 issues.

JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #25 $2.99 - I could be coming to the end of this title. It's been great for a long time, but the last few story arcs have been kind of confusing and leaving me feeling flat.

MIGHTY #3 $2.99 - I hope this book continues to find an audience and get support, but unfortunately books like these, with new or unknown characters, don't usually last long.

JERSEY GODS #3 $3.50 - Everyone should check this book out. Fun, fun, fun.

AGENTS OF ATLAS #3 $2.99 - See above.

GI JOE #4 $3.99 - GI JOE: ORIGINS and GI JOE: COBRA are really knocking it out of the park, making the main book look like it's standing still. That being said GI JOE is still a lot of fun and very true to the spirit of the original GI JOE.
