Astonishing X-Men #13 – Season 2 of Astonishing X-Men is underway! Joss Whedon’s awesome take on everyone’s favorite mutants finally picks back up and gets rolling. The first 12 issues were the best that the X-Men have been in years; this set of 12 promises to be just as good, if not better. But then, you all knew that already.

Green Lantern #9 – Having Hal Jordan back sure is nice. He IS Green Lantern. This series has been blowing people’s socks off, and if you’ve ever liked the Emerald Knight, then you should definitely check this book out. Seriously. It’s good. Don’t just take my word for it; read it for yourselves…

Supergirl #5 – Is it just me, or did #4 of this book just come out last week?! Despite what I said about snagging a copy for myself before they disappeared, I wasn’t able to do it. This book just sells out too darn fast. Maybe I’ll be able to sneak one this week…

Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk #2 – FINALLY!! After that awesome first issue, this book is finally shipping. I can’t wait to dig into this issue and see what exactly transpires that got Wolverine to the point where he got freakin’ ripped in half by a really ticked off Hulk. This book is written by one of the creators of the ultra mega-hit TV show, LOST, by the way. That explains a lot, doesn’t it?

Warlord #1 – The Warlord is finally back! The title made famous by Mike Grell in the 80’s is being revived by fabulous writer Bruce Jones and superstar artist Bart Sears. That alone should compel you to pick it up. However, if that doesn’t suffice, check this out: a fighter pilot is going along, doing his thing, when his plane crashes and he finds himself in an arcane world of sword and sorcery. He doesn’t know that yet, of course; he’s just lost and a lot of weird things are happening. When he realizes he’s stuck there, he makes the best of it and does his best to survive in this completely alien world. Yes, this book is going to be flat-out awesome!

Wolverine #39 – This story arc, a continuation of the ground-breaking Origin story from a couple of years ago, is fantastic. The story is great, the art is great, and there’s no way you should be missing this story! If you’ve ever been a Wolverine fan, you definitely need to be reading this book…

See you at Haven!
