Clockwork Girl #0 - A nameless robot girl has recently been given the gift of life from her creator - while exploring the wonders of an ordinary world, she meets an amazing mutant boy and they share a friendship that must overcome their warring families. Arcana's Sean O'Reilly and Disney's Kevin Hanna have created a wonderful all ages fairytale beautifully illustrated by Revere's Grant Bond. This is a gorgeous book, and it’s only 25 cents! Give it a shot!

First Born #1 (of 3) – This new book from Top Cow taps into the Witchblade and Darkness stories to tell an action/horror story. If you like Witchblade, Darkness, Cyberforce, or any of the other Top Cow properties even a little bit, then you’re going to like this book. Oh, and, as you might expect, the art is gorgeous.

Inanna’s Tears #1 (of 5) - In Sumer, before the rise of the kingship, the prosperous city of Birith is known throughout the land for its devotion to the goddess Inanna. But after a thousand years of plenty, the city is in danger of being overrun by the nomadic refugees that swell in number outside of its walls. Powerful people begin to question the city’s devotion to this goddess, and the world begins to fall apart. This is a proto-historical romantic drama. Definitely worth checking out.

Iron & the Maiden #1 - From the mind of Jason Rubin, creator of the massive hit video game franchises Crash Bandicoot and Jak and Daxter, Iron and the Maiden features character designs by Joe Madureira and Jeff Matsuda and interior art by Francis Manapul and Joel Gomez, along with colors by Danimation. Even if you knew nothing about the story – which, if this is your only source of info, you don’t – this is going to be worth picking up! Great, fun writing with all kinds of mad skillz on the art – this is a must!

Metal Men #1 (of 8) - Bursting from the pages of 52 and SUPERMAN/BATMAN into their own new 8-issue miniseries by Duncan Rouleau — it’s Gold! Platina! Mercury! Iron! Lead! Tin! And now Copper! Doc Magnus’s creations are ready to take on all-new threats and some old, reimagined ones: Chemo, Doctor Yes, B.O.L.T.S., The Balloonatic and his Orphan Army, as well as the Robot Renegades led by an old Manhunter Robot! But the greatest threat lies in Le Cabinet Noir and its bid to control the natural order using dangerous lieutenants like the Nameless, an armored being that feeds off the blood of the innocent and controls the Gogoloth, giant stone Golems made of Granite, Bizmuth, Onyx and Lime. These guys are just plain goofy.

Outsiders: Five of a Kind Week 1 - Five of a Kind -- Five issues, five top creative teams, one team-up per week, as Batman takes control of the Outsiders by using these adventures to pick his new lineup! In Week 1: Nightwing/Boomerang, Batman's first vote is cast! The two Outsiders with just one thing in common -- a troubled relationship to the Dark Knight -- must reconcile their differences to go up against Chemo!

Spider-Man/Red Sonja #1 (of 5) - Quite possibly the most ridiculous team up in the history of comic books, this is a book for the ages: one age being the period in which Red Sonja lives, and one being the period in which Spider-Man lives. Last I checked, those weren't the same. Maybe it's not really Red Sonja, maybe this whole thing was Peter Parker's idea and that's really just Mary Jane in a weird get-up. Could we be that lucky? Probably not. If this is worth the paper it's printed on, I'll eat a copy.

Thor #2 – In the first issue, Thor and Donald Blake, the mortal to whom the Thunder God became bonded way back in the day, came back from limbo in the first issue. Now, in the second issue, Thor needs to rebuild Asgard after its destruction in Ragnarok. Also, he needs to find his old Asgardian friends and persuade them to join him in the new Asgard. J. Michael Straczynski tells these kinds of stories very, very well – read Midnight Nation! – and this is definitely more in his vein of storytelling than Spider-Man. And, if you missed the first issue, we’ve still got a few in stock!!

World War Hulk #3 (of 5) – Unlike Civil War, which featured months long breaks between issues, World War Hulk is picking up steam and coming out not only on schedule, but, in this case, EARLY. I know. When was the last time that happened? And, not only that, it’s been, er, incredible so far. What an awesome story!! You should definitely be reading this!

See you at Haven!
