BPRD: Garden of Souls #1 (of 5) – These Hellboy spin-offs have taken on a life of their own, and it’s been a great ride. This new limited series takes us back and reveals more of the origin of Abe Sapien, Hellboy’s aquatic sidekick. If you want to know more about how he got to be…well, what he is, this is the place to find out.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 – At last, for all you fans of the TV series, Joss Whedon and his team of TV writers are putting out Season 8 – only this time in comic book format! That’s right – this Buffy series is canonical. It’s not ancillary. It’s not someone trying to make a quick buck of a less-than-desirable Buffy series. This is the series’ creator officially continuing the show into another season. Be there for it!

Grifter/Midnighter #1 – Everyone’s favorite characters from Wildcats and the Authority meet up in their own limited series to do some butt-kicking. As you can imagine, a cloud of trouble is going to billow up around these guys, but they’ve handled that sort of thing before. We’ll see if they can do it again. Rumor is that one of them is going to, well, not make it.

New Avengers #28 – Who is in the Ronin costume now? It’s not Echo. Who is it? There are a great many theories out there about this – the two most popular peg the new Ronin to be either Hawkeye or Captain America (who would not be dead in this case). While Ronin – a masterless samurai – is a perfect description of who Cap is since Civil War, I just don’t know that Marvel has thought that far ahead. I’d love for that to be the case, but I suspect it’s probably Hawkeye or, more likely, Iron Fist. Who else is going to “Yo” Luke Cage in the middle of a fight?

Thunderbolts #112 – So far in Warren Ellis’ run on Thunderbolts, these are definitely the guys you love to hate. He’s assembled some of the most despicable villains in the Marvel Universe and put them on a team working for the ‘good guys’ (if you can call that fascist, Tony Stark, a good guy anymore). This team is a sick and twisted group, but they’re like a bad car wreck; you can’t quit watching. In the hands of a lesser writer, this would probably be a joke, but Warren Ellis is able to make it compelling. Oh, and Mike Deodato Jr.’s artwork is GORGEOUS.

Wonder Woman #5 – I know. It took months and months for Wonder Woman #4 to hit the stands, then, in the space of two weeks, both #4 and #5 come out. Next thing you know, Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk #3 will actually show up one day. If someone is looking for canonization as a Saint, this probably counts as a miracle.

See you at Haven!
