Daredevil #100 – Bendis’ run on Daredevil was phenomenal, and then Ed Brubaker took over…and it got better. I wasn’t expecting that. Well, Brubaker is guiding this great comic through its landmark 100th issue (under the new numbering system). If you haven’t been reading this book, you should certainly check it out – it is excellent.

Drafted #1 – What would happen if aliens made contact…and they weren’t friendly? This book answers that question – all wars on earth would cease as every nation bands together to fight off a threat to our entire planet. This new book from Devil’s Due looks very cool. Give it a look-see.

Groo 25th Anniversary Special – Sergio Aragones’ Groo is back! Groo is kind of like Conan the Barbarian gone horribly and hilariously wrong, and this anniversary special will absolutely be more of the same. If you’ve never read Groo before and you enjoy a good laugh, you’ll definitely want to check this out!

JLA Wedding Special #1 - Green Arrow and Black Canary are getting married. This is a wedding special. You should get it. If Green Arrow and Black Canary have a kid, what color will it be?

Potter’s Field #1 (of 3) - Hart Island, off the western end of Long Island, is where New York buries its nameless dead. Called Potter’s Field, it’s the final destination of suicides, victims of drug crimes, stillborns, infants, and anyone else without identification whose expiration date has passed without connection to cause, culprit, or claimant. These are the unfortunate many who pass into the beyond wrapped in a shroud of anonymity, six feet under a nondescript marker that will forever identify them only by a number. For the enigmatic man known only as John Doe, however, this veritable Bermuda Triangle of human existence is unacceptable, and he wages a campaign to find the truth and eventually a name that he can chisel into their stone. An unusual book, but one that looks like a great read. Definitely give this one a look.

Suicide Squad: Raise the Flag #1 (of 8) – Suicide Squad. John Ostrander. That’s right, DC Nation, you’ve got 8 issues of John Ostrander goodness on one of those oddball books where he brings back the Suicide Squad. You know you want it.

Wonder Girl #1 (of 6) - After the disastrous events of AMAZONS ATTACK, Wonder Girl strikes out to tie up some particularly monstrous loose ends. Simple enough, right? Well, you know you’ve got to get your hands on this.

X-Men: Emperor Vulcan #1 (of 5) - The mutant known as Vulcan (and brother to X-Men veterans Cyclops and Havok) has conquered the Shi'ar empire and ascended the throne, but he'll find his reign challenged in X-Men: Emperor Vulcan #1 (of 5)! Written by Christopher Yost (New X-Men) and penciled by Paco Diaz, with covers by "Young Gun" Billy Tan, this all-new, all-different limited series pits the new Starjammers, led by Havok, against his brother's Shi'ar forces in an intergalactic clash of titans! But as both sides delve deeper into this conflict, each must question their positions. Is Vulcan really the savior of the Shi'ar? Do the X-Men, now aligned with the Starjammers, truly belong in this battle? And can Vulcan be stopped after already defeating the X-Men once before? Can he? Huh? Can he? You’ll have to read here to find out!

See you at Haven!

josh, we were talking about this the other day. you said that the killing joke is out of print right now, and i couldn't remember where you could actually get i've found it. it is the final story in "DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore." so, whichever customer was looking for it, you might want to recommend this one, since it has some other nice stuff too. here's the DC link for the book.
