Batman: LOTDK #200 – This landmark series finally reaches its 200th issue! When this series first started, it was a darker, more mature-themed Batman book, and nobody thought it would last. Well, with this issue, it proves all the nay-sayers wrong! Of course, the book isn’t the same today as it was back then; it’s gone through a great many stylistic changes, but if you want to pick up a collectible issue of a long-running series, this may be a good one to start with.

Ghost Rider #6 – This limited series comes to a close with this issue, which is going to sadden a lot of people. Anyone who has ever had the slightest interest in the fiery skulled Ghost Rider has been wowed by this series; the story definitely has a different take on the Ghost Rider character, and the artwork is absolutely incredible. I think there will be more stories to come…hopefully the movie, starring Nicholas Cage, will be as good as this series has been.

Marvel Zombies #3 – I thought it couldn’t get much more grotesque than the first issue, but the second issue proved me wrong very quickly. And this issue looks like it will keep right on going in that same direction. This book is horribly grotesque, but, for whatever reason, I can’t help but read it. If you’re like me in that regard, you better pick this up fast; believe it or not, it’s selling out…

Son of M #3 – Quicksilver can’t stand being a normal human; so he’s trying to do anything he can think of, including stepping into the mutating Terragen Mists of the Inhumans! Is it bad that I’m really hoping he sprouts tentacles out of his nose or something instead of regaining his super speed? If only Black Bolt would whisper a sweet nothing or two in his ear, that would make me happy too.

Supergirl #4 – I almost forget this series exists, because it sells out so quickly, we never have any left for the back issue bins. The only thing I can think this means is that this series is awesome. Everyone I know who has been able to get their hands on a copy has verified this. I’m going to snag a copy myself this week if I have to hit someone over the head to do it!

Ultimate Extinction #2 – It’s the end of the world as we know it! It’s the end of the world as we know it! Everybody sing! C’mon! Okay, fine. Ultimate Gah Lak Tus is coming, and we don’t know what he is, but he’s been here all year long – man, no one is going with me on the songs today. Read this book to find out what the heck is going to happen to earth and see if the planet survives. Jerks.

X-Men: The 198 #2 – With only 198 mutants left in the world, there are bound to be some interesting consequences. House of M and the fall out from it have finally put the X-books back on the map – let’s hope the storylines are good enough to keep them there!
