Athena Voltaire: Flight of the Falcon #3 – This fantastic small-press indie book features a very Indiana Jones-like protagonist (if Indiana Jones were a beautiful woman!); it’s a great pulp serial, highly reminiscent of the ‘30s and ‘40s. You should definitely give this book a shot; it’s worth it. Also, having met the creative team a couple of times, they are very cool guys, let’s support them!

Batman Confidential #1 – Almost another Year 1, this story focuses on when and where exactly Batman’s war on crime really went to the next level, and it also focuses on how he came by all the cool gadgets in his arsenal. Written by Andy Diggle and featuring Whilce Portacio’s (WetWorks) art, this limited series is going to fly off the shelves. Make sure you get your copy!

Delphine #1 – This is a new version of the Sleeping Beauty story, told from the prince's perspective as he wanders through a strange, abandoned town with only a scrawled note to lead him towards the mysterious Delphine. The solicitation promises this to be creepy and not sweet at all, and I'd believe it. Even better, it's part of the Ignatz line of comics, which means it's printed in an oversized 8x11' edition with a dust jacket and high production values all around. If you like Fables at all, this might be right up your alley too!

Justice Society of America #1 – Much like the JLA is in the process of being re-formed, the world’s oldest and, historically, most powerful super team is also experiencing a renaissance. Determined to rebuild the Justice Society, founding members Green Lantern, Flash and Wildcat initiate an unprecedented recruitment program, tracking the bloodlines of heroes across the world and bringing in the new Starman, Damage, Liberty Belle and God only knows who else. But just as the Society welcomes the rookies into their ranks, an evil force sets out to destroy them. Meet new legacies, solve a mystery stretching into the far future, witness the return of the world’s greatest hero, and watch another one fall — all in the pages of this fantastic new series!

New Universal #1 – Planet Earth. Inhabited by six billion people. People leading ordinary lives, coping with everyday struggles. But on a night like any other, the Earth is rocked by the most startling celestial event ever witnessed by the human race. The White Event. And from its wake, a handful of humans emerge as something more. Acclaimed writer Warren Ellis (NEXTWAVE) and superstar artist Salvador Larroca (X-MEN) bring you this new universe — a universe witnessing superhuman power for the first time.

Spider-Man: Reign #1 – This is a story of Spider-Man’s future, a possible future anyway, brought to you by superstar Kaare Andrews (INCREDIBLE HULK). They finally did it - kicked them to the curb. The "capes and tights" crowd -- there's no place for them in the Big Apple anymore. Peter Parker? He can't even remember what it was like to don the red and blue and swing through the night sky. Doesn't want to, anyway. After all, there's nothing left to fight for, is there? That is until an old "friend" appears on Peter's doorstep, bearing a package and a message -- and everything changes. If it's not Peter's responsibility, then whose is it?

Tranquility #1 - Tranquility is like any other small town in America, except for one fundamental difference: It's the town where super-powered beings go in order to retire and raise families. From the Golden Age to the Modern Age, heroes and villains alike reside in Tranquility, and it creates a unique blend of personalities and conflicts that causes the local law enforcement nothing but headaches! As a camera crew is in town to film a news segment on this unique place, the town is turned upside down by a murder...and it becomes evident that everything isn't as quaint as it seems. I’m sorry, but the idea of retirement community for superheroes/villains just cracks me up. And it’s written by Gail Simone; so at least you know the writing will be good.

That’s all for me this week! See you at Haven!
