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?
