Batman #659 – Grant Morrison & Andy Kubert’s run on Batman continues! Now that the first story arc is out of the way, they move on to phase 2. If you read the first arc, you know these guys aren’t kidding around. Between this book and Paul Dini’s run on Detective, Batman hasn’t been this good in at least a decade. You should be reading this book!

Batman/The Spirit – Batman teams up with Will Eisner’s iconic, fedora-clad hero, The Spirit, in this one-shot. This has been touted as a classic Batman detective tale with a retro take on the character – if you like really, really old-school Batman and you’re a fan of Will Eisner’s, this is the book for you.

Crossing Midnight #1 – A couple of kids are sought after by some mysterious samurai babbling about the future and horrible things coming to pass which they are, somehow, connected to. Set in contemporary Nagasaki, this new series from Vertigo taps into Japanese and Korean horror to mix the mythology of The Sandman with the fantasy of films like Hayao's Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away.

Immortal Iron Fist #1 – Now that his partner in crime Luke Cage has found a home in the New Avengers and Colleen Wing and Misty Knight, their former friends/colleagues, are enjoying some success in Heroes for Hire, it’s time for Iron Fist to make a comeback too! He’s been helping out Matt Murdock by running around in a Daredevil costume while Matt was in jail for, um, being Daredevil, but now it’s time to return to the green and gold and kick some mystic martial arts booty. Sounds a little hokey, I know, but I’m really looking forward to this new series. Definitely check it out!

Ultimate Power #2 – This bizarre crossover event hits town with its 2nd issue on Wednesday, and if sales of the first issue were any indication, you’re going to want to pick this one up pretty fast. As always, Greg Land’s artwork is gorgeous, and it’ll be worth the price of admission alone. Throw that in with the Supreme Power/Ultimate crossover going on, and this ought to be a really interesting issue.

Ultimate Vision #0 – The Ultimate Vision isn’t an AI robot created by Hank Pym, but rather a unique creation of an alien race, an attempt to document their last days before they and their planet were destroyed by Gah Lak Tus. Vision recorded their attempts (and failures) to prevent their destruction. From there, Vision went to planet after planet, warning of Gah Lak Tus’ coming and recording their attempts to save themselves. Until earth, no one ever even slowed it down. Gah Lak Tus is attacking other planets now, regrouping, and planning a new assault on earth. This limited series follows Vision around as he/she/it warns civilizations of their impending doom and what, potentially, they can do to save themselves.

Whisper #1 – Boom! Studios has acquired the rights to this old comic (formerly published by First Comics); so if you’re an old fan, you’ll enjoy getting reacquainted with Whisper, and if you have no idea what I’m talking about, that’s okay too. Just take a look at an indie book that was popular enough to be brought back to life at a different company. What have you got to lose?!


See you at Haven!
