Civil War: Frontline #7 – If you ask me, the Frontline story is better than the primary story going on in the Civil War title. The threads with the two newspaper reporters have been handled extremely well, and Speedball’s legal case has been intriguing. Good stuff.

Fables #54 – Plans for the Adversary’s attack on Fabletown and the world of the Mundy’s continue to be revealed, and they ain’t pretty. Your favorite Fables are NOT going to have an easy time of it. As always, this book is at the top of the heap; Fables gets my highest recommendation!

Gen 13 #1 – Remember, back in the day, when Gen 13 first showed up and J. Scott Campbell’s artwork was brand spanking new? Well, happy days are here again if you remember that era in comics fondly! Gen 13 #1 more or less starts over with your favorite characters from the original series; give it a whirl if you feel like a little drive down Nostalgia Lane. And a lot more of the old Wildstorm Image books are coming back under the DC/Wildstorm label; keep your eyes peeled for Wildcats (written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Jim Lee!), Wetworks, Stormwatch, etc.

Irredeemable Ant-Man #1 – A bored and disgruntled SHIELD agent hijacks one of the now deceased Ant-Man’s suits of armor, replete with shrinking capability, and goes on a spree. This book is an irreverent, zap/pow/zing kind of romp; if you feel like a good laugh, you should definitely pick this book up!

Revelations TP – From Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos, this murder mystery set in the heart of the Vatican is a must read. Paul Jenkins almost always delivers, and this book is not one of the exceptions. Humberto Ramos’ highly stylized art seems out of place on a book like this at first blush, but actually suits the book perfectly. This is one heck of a story, containing the entire limited series. Check it out!

Tales of the Unexpected #1 – The Spectre, the instrument of God’s wrath, is unleashed on anyone and everyone who chooses evil over good. If you’re a DC fan and you want to watch some serious bad guy butt-kicking, you will definitely want to give this limited series a once over.

Ultimate Power #1 – What happens when Marvel’s Ultimate Universe and its Supreme Power Universe collide? Well, guessing from what we know of these two worlds, there’s going to be a mighty big turf war. Once again, in an effort to cure Ben Grimm, Reed Richards punches through to another universe – no zombies this time, thankfully! – and the men and women of Supreme Power are not happy about him popping in uninvited. Written by Bendis and featuring Greg Land’s art, this limited series is sure to knock your socks off. Definitely pick this one up!

Ultimate X-Men #75 – Introducing…the Ultimate Cable. And Marvel is telling us he’s not who we think. The critics are all jumping on the bandwagon with this issue though; so it must be something interesting, at least. Check it out and let me know what you think…

Wolverine Origins #7 – Logan’s past continues to affect his present, and now Omega Red is here to kick some butt and take some names. So far, this series has been a lot of fun; if you’re not getting your recommended daily allowance of adamantium, then pop a copy of this issue and – snikt! – you’ll be feeling better in no time.

See you at Haven!
