Lots of exciting stuff coming out this week, including two Titan-ic follow-ups to two sharp–and unmistakingly Moore-ish–first issues; a finale that finally flies our way after what feels like forever; and one of my favorite TV shows brought back to life–as a comic!

  • BPRD: Hell on Earth #127 (Dark Horse): I’m a believer!  Better late than never, no?
  • Dark Horse Presents #6 (Dark Horse): A prologue of Kindt’s PastAways keeps me on DHP for at least one more month.
  • Batman and Robin #38 (DC): New pull list will be New 52 free as of this week.  Dropping this…
  • Wonder Woman #38 (DC) ..and this.
  • Millennium #1 (IDW) Just I&N Three seasons just wasn’t enough!  Now that Frank Black’s back–after sixteen years!–I can focus all of my wish energies toward a comic book continuation of My So-Called Life.  Not kidding.

  • The October Faction #4 (IDW): Has been generally underwhelming.  Too far in to quit now.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #42 (IDW): If Old Hob’s goofy mutant crew couldn’t turn me off–guess I’m in for the long haul!
  • Wild Blue Yonder #6 (IDW) I&N Demand Check out our exclusive advance review here.

  • Autumnlands: Tooth and Claw #3 (Image): Busiek’s building something pretty powerful over here–so powerful it needed a longer title to express just how powerful it is!  Worth jumping on–or, better, catching up with–if you haven’t done so already.
  • The Wicked & The Divine #7 (Image) I&N Demand Gillen and McKelvie are delivering the gods.  One of my favorite books.

  • All-New X-Men #35 (Marvel): I’m preparing for ultimate disappointment.
  • Loki: Agent of Asgard #10 (Marvel): Leaning toward not picking it up.  All of the crossover crap has killed it for me.  Inevitable, I suppose.
  • Magneto #14 (Marvel): Hasn’t suffered as much as Loki has from the crossover crap, but has suffered nevertheless.  Isn’t hitting the same high notes that were hit early on.
  • Moon Knight #11 (Marvel) I&N Demand So, so good.

  • Burning Fields #1 (BOOM!): I haven’t loved what I’ve read from Michael Moreci.  I’m going to give him another go, though.  I mean, I didn’t quit on Williamson; and that’s paid off with Birthright.  Even better–and more unlikely–evidence: I kept trying Remender–despite hating everything with his name on it and knowing full well I’d hate the next thing with his name on it–and got lucky with Low.  So maybe, just maybe, this’ll work out.
  • Cap Stone #2 (Titan) I&N Demand I liked #1 a lot.  Hit similar notes to Krekeler’s Dry Spell, which we loved.  In that, hearing whispers of Moore.

  • Crossed +100 #2 (Avatar): Speaking of Moore.  Yes, please.
  • Epocholypse #3 (Legendary): Has the potential to be really great–or to collapse under its own weight.  Guess I’m investing in the former.  We’ll see.
  • Mono #2 (Titan) I&N Demand Liked this one a lot, too.  Love the meta effect, which will, without a doubt, keep me a regular reader.  This is one Mono that you should do your best to catch.

  • The Twilight Zone: Shadow & Substance #1 (Dynamite): All signs point to passing, what with J.M.S.’s superior run just about over.  Something–a voice…coming from…my water bottle?–is telling me I should give it a try.  Freaky!
  • The Valiant #2 (Valiant): Not willing to commit to it–despite Kindt’s hand in it.  Yeah, didn’t love the first one.  Unity didn’t work all that well; can’t imagine this one will either.  Got to wonder about some of Valiant’s choices of late.
  • Über #21 (Avatar): Still very good.  As thin as Gillen’s stretching himself across the industry, his work is still pretty damn substantial no matter the genre or the universe–whether his own or one he’s got to work within.  Dude’s a stud.

What are you looking forward to this week?

Turning pages,
