Athena Voltaire: Flight of the Falcon #1 – The first two issues of this book were originally published by Speakeasy, just before Speakeasy went under. But this book was saved from oblivion by Ape Entertainment (same guys who publish the very cool Black Coat title). Athena Voltaire is, basically, a female Indiana Jones, really cashing in on the whole pulp serial fiction of the ‘30s/’40s. This is an awesome book, and I highly recommend everyone pick this up!

Batman and the Mad Monk #1 – Matt Wagner tells a tale of the first ‘super’ villain Batman ever faced: the Mad Monk! This is Batman. This is Matt Wagner. This is worth it! There’s not a lot else to say besides that.

Battlestar Galactica #1 – The 25-cent preview issue of this series was surprisingly good; if you’re a fan of the new TV series – and even George RR Martin likes it! – then you should enjoy this title. Give it a shot and let me know what you think!

Boys #2 – Didn’t the first issue of this book *just* come out?!?! Garth Ennis says he’s going to out-Preacher Preacher in this series and, judging by some of the events in the first issue, I think he may be well on his way to doing just that. Holy cow. If you liked the first issue, you should love the second.

Gremlins HC – Roald Dahl, classic author of books like the BFG (Big Friendly Giant), James and the Giant Peach, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wrote Gremlins while in the Air Force in WWII. This was just rediscovered and Dark Horse knew it had found something good when it found the original Disney adaptation of this story; so now it’s being republished in a brand new Hard Cover, and it will be great! Can’t wait to read it!

Heroes for Hire #1 CW – If you missed Heroes for Hire #1 this past week, don’t fret. We got shorted on the title, and Diamond is making it up to us by shipping the rest of them this week! This a fun title with good artwork, and it ties well into the Civil War story without being overly serious about it. Definitely check this one out!

Trials of Shazam #1 – Fresh from the pages of DC’s Brave New World, Shazam gets his own 12-issue maxi-series. Fans of the red-clad Captain Marvel definitely need to get in line for this series; it looks like it’s going to move fast. Most of DC’s new series have been very popular of late, and this one looks like no exception.

Ultimate Fantastic Four #33 – What happens in the Ultimate U now that the zombie threat has been negated? Well, for starters, a new creative team takes the reins on the book, and from what I’ve seen, there won’t be a reduction in quality. Ultimate FF has seen its share of creative teams over the course of the past 32 issues, but they’ve all been very good, and this one is no exception. If you’ve been wanting to check this book out but you’ve been waiting for a good new story arc to start, this is your chance!

See you at Haven!
