Vacation’s history.  Good thing I’ve got an escape plan:

  • Brain Boy #1 (Dark Horse): Anything with Fred Van Lente at the helm is a no-brainer.

  • The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #4 (Dark Horse): So far, the series hasn’t read like a particularly engaging book; yet, strangely enough, it is–and quite.
  • Astro City #4 (DC/Vertigo): Busiek is in complete control of his universe, and we’re all the better for it.

  • FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics #3 (DC/Vertigo): I didn’t care for most of #2, and then came the end–an end that very well may have staved off the end of this brief affair.
  • Clone #10 (Image): #8 waned.  #9 waxed.  Wonder if I’ll be whining about waning again this time around.  Or maybe I’ll be woohoo-ing about waxing.  Either way, I’ve got to know: what’s the splatter with these guys?

  • Ghosted #3 (Image): May be the last go-round for Ghosted and this guy.
  • The Manhattan Projects #14 (Image): Always a potential Book of the Month.
  • Sidekicks #2 (Image): The real villain of #1 was a tragically transparent twist.   I’m going to pick this one up, though; after all, it took JMS more than two issues to sell me on Ten Grand.
  • Captain America #11 (Marvel): Could this be the Captain America I’ve been waiting for?  After the complete diZola that was Remender’s NOW! reboot, I sure hope so.  Hey, maybe he’s seen the light.  Color me red, white, and cautiously optimistic.

  • Indestructible Hulk #13 (Marvel): This trip through time hasn’t been as terrible as I thought it’d be.  Waid captured the Kids of the Wild West pretty well; now it’s on to Camelot.
  • X-Men #5 (Marvel): So far, Battle of the Atom been an underwhelming exercise in making this time-travel mess count for something.  Suppose this one’s going to fall in line.
  • Archer & Armstrong #13 (Valiant): Wow!  A year in already?  Hard to believe.  But what a year it’s been, no?  Without question, A&A‘s a Top Ten monthly.  Why should this month be any different?  Aliens?  Dinosaurs?  Bring ’em on!

  • Eternal Warrior #13 (Valiant): Worth a try.  The Eternal Warrior’s gotten a lot of good exposure across the Valiant Universe, and he looks like a compelling enough character.  Plus, Greg Pak’s doing some heady work over on Batman/Superman.  Wonder what he’s going to do here; I mean, this doesn’t seem like a forum for heady fare–or does it?
  • Rachel Rising #19 (Abstract Studio): Re: #18: Now that’s how you craft a cliffhanger.  This’ll be my first read.

What are you looking forward to tomorrow?
