There is no way–NO WAY!–I’ll end up with more than ten books this week.  Here’s the lucky lot:

  • Batman #20 (DC): It’s not a Bridge to Nowhere, after all; it’s the Tightrope to Year Zero!
  • Justice League of America #3 (DC): Geoff John’s been a decent enough front man so far.  Back up vocalist, Matt Kindt, may steal the show, however; heck, he might end up taking over the band at some point–who knows?
  • Suicide Squad #20 (DC): What brings this title back to What’s Up? after five months or so?  One big reason: Ales Kot, fresh off of his psychedelic work on Change (Image) takes over the writing duties from Adam Glass.

  • X #1 (Dark Horse): Willing to give it another shot–even after a pretty run-of-the-mill #0–because I’ve enjoyed Duane Swierczynski’s work on Bloodshot.
  • The Rocketeer: Hollywood Horror #4 (IDW): As legitimately retro as a comic could be!  The real horror here: #4 brings this magnificent mini to a close.

  • Chin Music #1 (Image): Steve Niles and Tony Harris?  Yes, please!

  • Archer & Armstrong #0 (Valiant): I hate dinosaurs.
  • Harbinger #12 (Valiant): Consistently solid.  Dysart’s developed a dynamic little book here, all while avoiding the typical traps that catch even the most seasoned of superhero scribes.
  • Battlefields: The Fall and Rise of Anna Kharkova #6 (Dynamite): Speaking of solid: Ennis is as good as it gets.
  • Uber #1 (Avatar): Kieron Gillen’s not my favorite writer (see: the awful pre-NOW! Uncanny X-Men), but this sounds interesting enough.  Comic-day decision.

What are you looking forward to this week?
