Annihilation: Super Skrull #1 – The cosmic mayhem continues! Annihilus, an old, old enemy of the Fantastic Four is wreaking havoc in the Marvel Universe, and an unlikely group is assembling to keep him from destroying, well, everything. Check out Super Skrull getting his own limited series as part of this!

BPRD: Universal Machine #1 – BPRD, from the pages of Hellboy, has continued with a collection of limited series, all building toward the end of the world. A lot of questions long unanswered in Hellboy are being answered here, and this new series looks to be particularly geared toward satisfying the readers’ curiosity. If you’re even remotely a fan of Hellboy, you’re going to want to check this series out.

Ms Marvel #2 – The first issue sold out within hours, and this one is likely to do the same! At the end of the first issue, Ms Marvel flew off to check out what just happened to a small town that more or less went black. When she gets there…well, the cover to #2 says it all: THE BROOD! Let’s see how she fares…

Star Wars: Boba Fett (1-Shot) – Yes, I’m recommending a Star Wars book. It’s been a long while since a Star Wars book caught my eye, but this one focuses on everyone’s favorite bounty hunter (“No disintegrations.”) and, judging from all the promo material, this one’s actually going to be a cool story with good art. It’s definitely worth giving a look-see.

Tales of Alvin Maker: Red Prophet #1 – If you’re an Orson Scott Card fan, you’re going to want to check out the comic adaptation of his alternate history Alvin Maker series. This is one of Card’s most popular series, and the artwork for this comic is top notch. Definitely check this out!

Ultimate Extinction #4 – Here comes Gah Lak Tus! Professor X has tried to make mental contact with the completely alien hive mind of Gah Lak Tus, but with no success. This swarming creature is here for lunch, and nothing they’ve discovered so far is going to dissuade it. This issue will have you on the edge of your seat as all the heroes and great minds are grasping at straws, trying to save the planet from destruction. My money’s on Reed Richards…I think he’s got the Ultimate Nullifier up his sleeve…

Young Avengers vol 1: Sidekicks TP – This collection is finally in paperback! The series came out of nowhere and surprised everyone (me more than anyone else) by its quality: interesting stories, intriguing characters, and great art. A hardback edition of this trade has been out for six months, but they are just now getting around to letting the public have this series in paperback. I HIGHLY recommend this book. Check it out – you’ll be glad you did. This book is nothing like you expect and everything like what you’d want to read.

See you at Haven!
