Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis #40 – It’s not a new #1 issue, but Aquaman is starting over with this new issue. All you die-hard DC fans will want to at least take a look at this new beginning. DC swears this is going to get back to basics with the character. Keep the fingers of your water-hand crossed, folks!

Hellboy: Makoma #2 (of 2) – Hellboy in Africa continues! The first issue was decidedly…weird…but it’s awesome to get another dose of Hellboy after so long without, and it’s cool to see him fighting different foes than the Nazis. Can’t wait to see where he goes from here!

Infinite Crisis #5 – So, is DC going to rip up the last 20 years of their collective history and more or less start over where 1984/85 left off? It’s possible, but I doubt this shake-up will be that extensive. It’s definitely a possibility. A lot of titles are being cancelled or restarted after this book winds down, and there are a lot of individual and team shake-ups in the works too. How exactly does that Earth 2 Superman tie into it all?!

Ms Marvel #1 – One of Marvel’s most misused characters of the past 15 years is getting another chance, and Marvel is going all out to impress with this new series. This ex-Avenger is going solo, and she’s out to make herself what she realized she should be: the best superhero on the planet. In House of M, she got her wish – she was the best – now that reality has kicked back in, she’s got to start earning that all over again. Story and art both look really good – definitely check this one out…

Thunderbolt Jaxon #2 – The first issue of this book flew in waaaaaaay under the radar, but it was really, really good. Three kids in Britain, all best friends, are digging around in some old church ruins with a metal detector, looking for old treasure. They find it. Buried under the flagstones of the weathered floor are a belt, a crown, and a torc (an ancient symbol of royalty). The weather turns bad, so all they run back home, and one of the kids discovers there’s more to his piece of the loot than just a nice shine. I can’t wait to get my hands on the second issue!

Ultimates 2 #10 – Where, oh where has this book been?!?!?! No matter, it’s here now! Time to find out how in the world Cap, Iron Man, and the rest of the Ultimates are going to pull their fannies out of the fire and save the United States from certain destruction. Keep your fingers crossed for your favorite characters, everyone! It’s rumored that not everyone will survive this.

X-Factor #4 – Man, this book is good! Layla Miller, she who “knows stuff,” is creeping me out, but Peter David is really delivering with this series, and I, for one, am most anxious to see where this book is heading. If you’re not reading this series, you really need to pick it up and give it a shot. It’s worth it.

See you at Haven!
