#NUVOpop: Backstagers!

8/19 Backstagers from Bridget Wilson on Vimeo.

Hey everyone! Welcome back.

This week in comics... Batgirl, Black Canary and Huntress form an unsteady alliance in Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #1, and Task Force X is assembled once again in Suicide Squad #1. IDW is releasing a series of creator owned comics starting with a World War 2 adventure called Jackboot and Ironheel.

In the Marvel Universe, the funeral of Bruce Banner is underway and something tells me that some of the mourners' sorrow will quickly turn to rage. Spider Woman will have to make some tough decisions in her tenth issue as well!

But honestly? None of it matters because Spawn is going to kill everyone. Yes, I said everyone. Spawn VS. Batman? Spawn wins. Spawn VS. Deadpool? Spawn wins. Spawn VS. Goku? Spawn! Seriously, what did I JUST say? Spawn is killing everyone so enjoy your favorite heroes while they last.

It follows a band of misfits that work as a stage crew for actual bands. But the stage crew isn't what it appears to be. It turns out there's a door backstage that's a portal to different worlds!

Supergirl
(W) Steve Orlando (A) Ray McCarthy

Supergirl Rebirth is upon us! This new series ties in a little with the TV show a little better, so you may be seeing some familiar faces in this series. In the first issue, Supergirl joins the DEO in order to regain the powers she lost. In the latest experiment they are performing on her, she's sent straight to the sun! However, things get a bit hairy when a Kryptonian werewolf attacks her hometown while she's away...

That's all for this week! Next week, from DC's Rebirth, we have Blue Beetle and Hellblazer starting up. We also have a Civil War 2 prequel comic revolving around the guy that started it all... Ulysses!
