Plenty of tricks so far this week.  Here’s hoping for at least a few treats out of this bunch.

Once a Year

  • Action Comics Annual #1: No Grant Morrison???  I’m scared!
  • Justice League Dark Annual #1: Now here’s a book in the spirit of Halloween!
  • Swamp Thing Annual #1: I hope someone gets his or her head chomped off.  I like when that happens–in comics, anyway.  You know you do to.

Consolation Prize

  • Happy #2: Phew.  Making up for missing Morrison on Action.

The Horror!  The Horror!

  • Fatale #9: Killer series from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips.

Something to Marvel At

  • Ultimate Spider-Man #16.1: There’s literally nothing scarier than a Marvel .1 book.  Geez.
  • Winter Soldier #12: This is the winter of Brubaker’s Marvel content.
  • Wolverine and the X-Men #19: It’s nineteen issues in and I’m still surprised by how good it is month to month.  Now that AvX is over, this book should really shine–especially with the NOW! nonsense popping up around it.

Great Expectations

  • The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom #3: Expected to see this a couple of weeks ago.  Here’s to hoping it hits the rack this week.  With their work on this series and on Daredevil, Mark Waid and Chris Samnee have established themselves as the team to beat.

What are you looking forward to this week?
