Friday has arrived and things are just a little bit different this week in what may be an interesting approach. This week has the next installment of Batman: Arkham Knight arriving from DC Comics as their digital first release and we also get Archie releasing a new mini collection with Fixer-Upper, for those looking for old school stories. The curious part this week is the arrival of the One-Punch Man special preview from Viz Media. Encouraging fans to try out new material is always good and free previews can definitely draw folks in. With this series having released its seventh volume just a couple of weeks ago on ComiXology, the potential to add some new readers is strong.
Arkham Knight: After a successful prison break, Bane finally has the Dark Knight right where he wants him…until a surprising ally joins the fight!
Archie: Archie and his pals are getting ready for some home improvement! Join the Riverdale gang in this digital-only collection of painting, sawing, fixing, hammering and more! We’re not sure if clumsy Archie is the guy to call when you need your roof patched, though. Will they do more damage than good?
One-Punch Man: Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem- he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on! Every time a promising villain appears, he beats the snot out of ‘em with one punch! Can Saitama finally find an opponent who can go toe-to-toe with him and give his life some meaning? Or is he doomed to a life of superpowered boredom?
