Avengers: Initiative #3 – Originally intended as a limited series, this has been expanded into a surprisingly good ongoing book. This is basically the training academy for new recruits to Iron Man’s 50 State Initiative program, and it has been an awesome read so far. Cool new characters have been introduced, some terrible things have happened, and there have been several cover-ups. Finding out who knows what is part of the intrigue in this book, and the fact that so much of this is exactly what Captain America feared it would become makes this a fantastic series. Check it out!

Black Diamond Detective Agency SC – Mixing a mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end with great action sequences and compelling characters, The Black Diamond Detective Agency may have been intended for the screen, but it’s hard to imagine how the story will ever surpass the treatment it receives here. Set in the Chicago or 1899, you can practically smell the Chicago air as you follow John Hardin through an awesome film noir feeling life or death battle of wits.

Detective Comics #833 – Even when Paul Dini takes a break every four or five issues, this series is still the best of the Batman titles out there right now. If you’ve always kind of liked Batman but didn’t know where to start picking up his books, this is a great place to start!

MPD Psycho vol 1 TP – Based on the Japanese TV series, mixing sci-fi, ultra-violence and horrific serial killers. As you all know, this isn’t the sort of thing I ordinarily recommend, but, hey, it’s got ultra-violence and serial killers, I figure any fans of Garth Ennis’ The Boys ought to love it! Yeah, I’m one of those fans…

Mystic Arcana: Book of Marvel Magic – Gaze into a crystal ball…consult the stars…or obsess over leftover tea leaves. All signs point to the imminent arrival of the latest and most mesmerizing addition to the OFFICIAL HANDBOOK series! This volume includes in-depth bios on the miraculous mixture of mighty mystics (Zhered Na, the Shadow Queen) and mysterious misfits (Papa Shorty and Pro-Rata!) that make up the magnificent menagerie of marvel magic! If you want to know more about Marvel’s magical people, this is the place to get the scoop!

New Warriors #1 – Wait a minute – aren’t they all dead? Who the heck is running around tagging Iron Man’s Avengers Initiative propaganda posters with New Warriors logos? Why? Someone is gift-wrapping super-villains for the police. Someone is defacing Superhuman Registration posters. Someone is raising eyebrows all around town -- from City Hall to Tony Stark's war chamber. And the only clue to their identity? Two spray-painted letters: N.W. Who are these mysterious young upstarts that have dared to fight the powers-that-be? And what do they want from a de-powered mutant named Sofia? Are the New Warriors truly back from the dead? Or has something new risen from the ashes of Stamford? Nah, I don’t know either, but I can’t wait to find out. Right now, I’m interested in anyone who pokes a finger in Tony Stark’s eye.

See you at Haven!
