New Avengers #15 – After the revelations in last issue, I’m dying to find out where this is going. Spider-Woman is working for everyone, it seems, and Captain America has to decide how best to use that to the Avengers’ advantage without getting her killed. Also, when do we find out more about Echo? You can’t just drop something like that on us and then walk away, Marvel! You hear me?!

Next Wave #1 – Someone decided it would be a good idea to let Warren Ellis loose in the Marvel Universe to do whatever the heck he wants, so he came up with Next Wave. Best I can tell, this book is about a superhero time comprised of losers. It’s kind of like a superhero sitcom, from the descriptions, I’ve read – so take that for what it’s worth. Warren Ellis is usually either superb or terrible; check this book out and see which camp it falls in…

Serenity TP – YES!!! At long last, the collected edition of the 3-issue Serenity comic comes out! This story bridges the gap between the end of Firefly and the beginning of the Serenity movie. Any and all Firefly/Serenity fans will want to own this. It’s awesome!

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic #1 – The massive and complex Star Wars universe is being compressed into two comics, and this is the first one. Star Wars fans will appreciate only having to pick up two titles, and they should be happy with this series; all the reviews I’ve read so far have been extremely positive. If you’ve always kind of liked Star Wars but didn’t want to jump in in the middle, this would be a great time to pick it up!

Ultimate Fantastic Four/X-Men Special – This is the second issue of this crossover that I thought was going to be wretched. As it turns out, it was fantastic! How can you not love this conversation?

Human Torch: You destroyed my stereo!
Thing: You were playing Fifty Cent!

This book is definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of any of the Ultimate universe titles. Talk about a pleasant surprise!

Wolverine #38 – Wolverine’s origin story continues! After the events of House of M, Logan remembers who he is and where he comes from; he remembers the women he’s loved and the things he’s done. But that doesn’t mean he knows how or why everything happened the way it did, and he wants to know. And he’s willing to go to any extreme to find out. This story arc in the Wolverine comic has been incredible; I highly recommend it!
