GI Joe: America’s Elite vol. 1 TP – This new GI Joe series has been as good or better than GI Joe has ever been…and this from a lifelong fan of the old comics and the toys. I love me some GI Joe! This new series is very well written and the art work, though highly stylized and very different, is awesome. I highly recommend this new series, and the first trade is a great way to get started!!

Giant Size Ms. Marvel #1 – With the new Ms. Marvel series coming out soon, Marvel thinks it might be a good idea to dredge up some key stories from her past and reprint them so folks can be caught up on the character before the first issue of her new series hits the shelves. Give it a look-see if this character interests you at all…

Justice #4 – Alex Ross’s new JLA story has been a little weird and occasionally hard to follow so far, but it’s been really good too. I’ve enjoyed the heck out of it. What the heck are these villains up to? Since when are they doing the right thing and helping people out?! I think they’re setting up one heck of a con, but we’ll have to read the book to find out. And, as usual, Alex Ross’s artwork is captivating. Definitely give this title a shot!

New Avengers #16 – It’s always a happy week when New Avengers ships! I’ve been enjoying this book immensely – if you’re not reading it, hop on the bandwagon already, because it’s extremely good. Don’t have a lot more to say about that at the moment.

Serenity TP – That’s right, we sold out of it in less than 20 minutes when it came in two weeks ago. Hopefully this time it will last a day or two before disappearing off the shelves! All you Firefly and Serenity fans, come in and pick up the trade now! It will fill you in on the events that transpired between the end of the show and the beginning of the movie. I conjure you can handle it.

Ultimate Fantastic Four #27 – Unlike Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Fantastic Four has been kicking tail and taking names lately. This is one of the better books in the Ultimate universe these days, and it has been all kinds of fun. The introduction of Ultimate Namor in the last story arc absolutely knocked me off my feet; I can’t wait to see where they go from here…

X-Men: Apocalypse/Dracula #1 – Normally, I’d say that any crossover featuring Dracula automatically sucks. Historically, this has been an accurate assessment. Now, I may regret suggesting that people give this title a once over, but, inexplicably, my gut instinct says this book is going to be good. Cross your fingers, everyone!

X-Men: Deadly Genesis #4 – Now, I know that this book rocks! This series has been absolutely one of the best X-Men stories in years, and I’m thrilled to see the X-Men, at least in one of their titles, achieve the level of story telling we were all spoiled to years and years ago – you know, before the books all started going down the toilet. This book gets my absolute highest X-recommendation!!


See you at Haven!!
