All New Atom #1 – DC has revamped or replaced a lot of their heroes lately, and the Atom is the latest to get the new-guy-in-an-old-identity treatment. I don’t know who the new guy is, but DC is pushing pretty hard to promote him; so they’ve clearly got plans for this new character. Get in on the ground floor!

Astro City: Life in the Big City – Astro City doesn’t come out often, but you can always count on one thing when it does: it is awesome. This is an invariably cool comic, set in a really unusual world; it’s loaded with nostalgia for Silver Age superheroes, but Kurt Busiek still tells modern stories that are compelling to any comics fan, and the Brent Anderson/Alex Ross artwork is reliably excellent. Highly Recommended!

Dark Horse: 20 Years – This book is only a quarter but, like always, you’ll get a lot for that hard earned 25 cents. Dark Horse is celebrating 20 years in the business, a feat not accomplished by many comics companies, and they’re doing it by selling a compilation book of new stories featuring some of our favorite titles over the years: Hell Boy, Sin City, Usagi Yojimbo, Star Wars, etc. Support quality independent comics and check Dark Horse out – you can’t go wrong for only a quarter.

Devi #1 – Speaking of independent comics, there’s a new player on the scene: Virgin Comics. That’s right, this is the same billionaire who introduced Virgin Records to the world, is now running Virgin Airlines, and is getting into the comics biz. This is the first title to ship from the new label (other than last week’s free giveaway – we’ve still got some at the shop!); so pick it up and give it a shot; it’ll be worth checking out!

OMAC #1 – That’s right: stepping right out of the pages of Infinite Crisis, OMAC is getting its own series. OMAC kind of reminds me of Marvel’s Ultron, and you can imagine what a series featuring Ultron would be like. This series will no doubt be worth reading. Give it a look-see.

Uncanny X-Men #475 – A new era for the Uncanny X-Men begins now! With a new creative team and a basic redirect to old-school X-Men, this series should make a mad dash right back to the top of the charts. This story picks up where the incredible X-Men: Deadly Genesis series left off. Cyclops and Havok have another brother, one they didn’t know about until just recently. The problem is, he’s off the chain. If you read that limited series, you know what’s going on; if not, just trust me – this is going to be good. You MUST pick this book up if you’re an X-Men fan whose been more than a little disappointed with the X titles in recent years; I think you’re going to like it again.

TRADES! TRADES! TRADES! As you can see in list up top, we’ve got a ton of trades shipping this week, especially of the Ultimate variety. If there are more trades that you need, just let me know and we’ll get them on order for you!

See you at Haven!
