This Week in Comic Collecting: Snake Eyes, DC x Fortnite and Injustice

Michael Caloca / ONE37pm

As has been the case throughout the past few months in the media world, this week saw the release of a few major trailers and sneak peeks of forthcoming comic-inspired projects. From Injustice to the Fortnite x DC collab, here are some of the most important recent moments driving the comic market as we approach the weekend.

Snake Eyes Trailer Debuts

It feels like every single week, Hollywood is rolling out a new group of trailers onto the market teasing the next crop of films hitting cinema and streaming services. Most of these trailers hit Youtube and social media apps/sites with little fanfare, while a select few seem to have everyone talking on the very same apps. Within that group of newsmakers, comic book IP seems to be the source material for many of these noteworthy teasers and trailers.  This week was no different, with Snake Eyes starring Henry Golding landing online and getting people talking. Some were excited to see the actor front and center as well as some cool martial arts action sequences. Others were less than enthused to see Snake Eyes unmasked and vocal, a major departure from his comic inspiration. Either way you land, Hasbro seems to have gotten everyone's attention.

And if you missed an issue or 3, have no fear, DC is reprinting all issues and the reprints have the codes as well. You can find your local comic shop via

Fans of the video game who are real bullish on its foray into comics should check out the current volume of Fantastic Four; Issue #24 features the Nexus War story from the previous season written by the top comic writer in the game, Donny Cates. This backup story serves as Fortnite’s 1st comic book appearance.  Cover B features a Fortnite Variant Cover and both Cover A and Cover B seem like great investments with virtually no slabbed copies on the market at the moment.
