Time for some comic books! Not just any comic books, though. New comic books! Maybe I'll just start writing about old comics...."Hey! Did you guys check out that RAVAGE 2099? Good stuff!" "Oh yeah, sure. It's great, but it's no PITT!"

Booster Gold #3BOOSTER GOLD #3
Booster Gold is a time-traveling fool. In the last issue, he accidentally caused the Sinestro War and in this issue he's in a drinking contest with Jonah Hex! I would've never thought that a continuity-heavy time-traveling book would be one of the best things that DC is putting out, but it is.

BLACK SUMMER #3
This book is surrounded by a giant cloud of controversy. Issue #0 had just a wee bit of Presidential assassination in it. By a superhero. Who then held a White House press conference covered in blood. Ahhh....Warren Ellis. The thing is, instead of drowning in self-righteousness, BLACK SUMMER has actually managed to tell an intriguing action-packed story.
FNSM #24
FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN #24
The second part of the One More Day storyline, in which Spider-Man learns that he only has one more day before he turns into a spider after the Kingpin assassinates Mary Jane and Aunt May for turning him into a clone of Norman Osborn and Gwen Stacy's twin babies. Now with 35% less wisecracking!

Hello there, Greg McElhatton. What's on your comics-reading agenda this week?

Absolutley Huge Sandman vol 2ABSOLUTE SANDMAN VOL 2
Ok, this is published by DC Comics, but it's non-superhero so I'm claiming it. Normally I'd be a little loathe to say, "Hey, buy a book you've already got, but in a new more expensive edition?" but the first ABSOLUTE SANDMAN was so worth it. The recolored pages looked amazing, adding so much depth and clarity to those early issues. (Suddenly Sam Kieth's pencils looked, well, like Sam Kieth instead of some strange sort of scrawl on the page.) While the coloring in Volume 2 doesn't need as much work, as an added bonus Colleen Doran's issue from "A Game of You" is being re-inked by herself so it actually looks, well, good. I am so buying this.Gyo 1
ALAN MOORES YUGGOTH CULTURES HC
He should really see a doctor about those.
GYO VOL 1

Finally back in print, Junji Ito's story about a revolting death stench that fills the air, and strange devices that start attaching themselves to fish who walk on water and destroy everything around them. Yeah, I know, a walking carp, big deal. Just wait until the honest-to-goodness land shark shows up and you'll begin to get why this is a horror manga that goes from bad to worse pretty quickly. A fun little two-volume story worth checking out.

Oh yeah, sure. It's great, but it's no PITT.
