Agents of Atlas #1 – The new (old) series from Marvel pulls some characters out of Marvel’s old ‘50s lineup and gives them another peek at the light of day. If you remember the “Man from UNCLE” TV show, this book reminds me an awful lot of that; also, for reasons I can’t quite put my finger on, it reminds me of Magnus: Robot Fighter for some reason. Plus it has a big, talking gorilla. You can’t really go wrong with a book that features a beret-wearing, gun-toting, talking gorilla. Really. It should be a lot of fun – if you like old-school comics, definitely pick it up and give it a shot.

All New Atom #2 – Seeing as how we ordered quite a few All New Atom #1’s and they’re all gone, I’ll go out on a limb here and say that #2 is probably going to go pretty quickly. If you want to check out the adventures of the new man in the old suit, pick this issue up fast!

Creeper #1 – The Creeper has been around in DC for quite a while, but I’ve never known much about him other than that he looks frighteningly like the Joker. Well, he was featured as one of the stories in the 80-page, $1.00 comic: DC Brave New World, and now he’s getting his own series. If you’re a DC fan, and I know there are a lot of you out there, give this a whirl and let me know what you think.

Detective Comics #822 - The Batman titles kind of hit the wall for me a year or two ago; they just flat out weren't any good. Now, at long last, quality is back, and my favorite super-hero is worth reading again! Detective is being written by Paul Dini, the guy who made the Batman cartoons so good, and he's writing every issue as a stand-alone story, which is a very refreshing change of pace. Plus, his first issue was awesome, which leads me to believe this issue will also grab my attention. Bring it on!

Fantastic Four #539 CW – This Civil War tie-in is shaping up to be one of the most critical events in the history of Marvel’s First Family. These guys have been through a lot, but it’s never caused them to really disband before. But that’s what’s coming. You heard it here first.

Moon Knight #4 – Who is Moon Knight going to damage this month?! So far, Moon Knight has done a lot of tail-kicking and name-taking, and he’s just getting started. Khonsu is the Egyptian god of vengeance, and apparently Moon Knight has some lost time to make up for. Yeah, this book is absolutely action packed, but it’s a great read and always leaves you wanting more. Can’t wait for Wednesday!

Uncanny X-Men #477 - The X-Men are back! Ed Brubaker, writer of the awesome X-men: Deadly Genesis series, is on Uncanny now, and he picked up right where Deadly Genesis left off. The new Summers brother, Vulcan, having learned the truth about the childhood he couldn't remember, has set off to destroy the Shi'ar Empire for what they did. Professor X and a handful of X-Men are on their way to try and stop him. This is excellent stuff!!!


See you at Haven!
