52 vol 1 TP – If you missed 52 in its weekly installments but you want to get in on this massive, universe-altering story, that’s still doable; just pick up the trades! The first volume comes out this week, with the rest following shortly thereafter. Get in on this to find out what happened during that whole 1 Year Later thing that happened in all the books.

Black Coat: Or Give Me Death #1 (of 4) – The previous Black Coat mini-series introduced us to the character of Black Coat, a very cool new character. In essence, he’s a patriotic Batman-type character during the Revolutionary War; he’s got very cool gadgets, but the writer prides himself on historical precedent in that regard, making sure the tools Black Coat uses were feasibly possible in that time period. Excellent stuff!

Boys #7 – After DC told Garth Ennis and Derek Robertson that their book was just too violent, too out there, too twisted, and too weird for them to continue publishing it, Ennis and Robertson took their weird offspring to Dynamite Entertainment, and, after a brief hiatus, the book is finally coming out again! This is a very over-the-top story about the people who have to police the ‘superheroes,’ seeing as how power corrupts and these ‘superheroes’ have an awful lot of power. This is one of the most twisted, screwed up books I’ve ever even heard of (Ennis claims he wants to out-Preacher Preacher in this title!), but it’s also really, really good. The trade also ships this week, featuring the first story arc.

Hellboy: Darkness Calls #2 (of 6) – The first issue of this series was fantastic, a classic Hellboy story. No, Mignola isn’t doing the art, and that’s normally a big thumbs down from me, but Duncan Fegredo does an excellent job using Mignola’s style without straight out aping it, and the story is exactly what you want from Hellboy. Definitely pick up this series!

Silver Surfer Requiem #1 (of 4) - Written by J. Michael Straczynski Paints and Cover by ESAD RIBIC The latest offering from the Marvel Knights line. Guest-starring the Fantastic Four! For untold years Norrin Radd has surfed the galaxy, exploring the darkness between stars, witnessing the rise and fall of vast civilizations. Now his ride is about to come to an end. It starts with a small spot -- a blemish that will spread until he is no more. Until then, the Silver Surfer would undertake his final voyage -- to the one destination that has always eluded him. His journey starts where it began.

White Picket Fences #1 (of 3) - The worlds of Leave It To Beaver and The Day The Earth Stood Still collide in the first issue of this exciting new series! When young Charlie Hobson uncovers Martian weaponry hidden deep within his town, he ignites a world threatening conflict between the American military and the eerie alien menace! Goofy? Yes. But it’s also a lot of fun – give it a whirl!
