Hello, new comics! It's Wednesday and there is a lot of stuff to read, so no time for dilly-dallying! (Also, no lollygagging, dawdling or roustabouting. ) To the comics!

Omega the Unknown #1OMEGA THE UNKNOWN #1
I just picked up the full run of the original Steve Gerber OMEGA series at Baltimore Comic-Con. It's about an alien and a 12-year old kid and their enigmatic relationship...and the Hulk is in it sometimes. It sounds weird because it is weird. It's unlike any other comic I've read and I loved it. In this new OMEGA limited-series, best-selling author Jonathan Lethem and POP GUN WAR artist Farel Dalrymple seem like they're embracing the best elements of the original and bringing something new to the table as well. It's even got Paul Hornschemeier as a colorist!

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #7
I'm a big-time Buffy nerd, so I'm always happy to see new issues of "Season 8". I'm also a mid-level Brian K. Vaughan nerd, so this second part of his Faith storyline earns extra points in my book. I don't know how many points that is or what the points are for, but now there are more of them.

Infinity Inc #2INFINITY INC. #2
The first issue of INFINITY INC. was good stuff. After 52, the young heroes of Lex Luthor's Everyman Project are dealing with the after-effects of having (and losing) powers. It's like a Vertigo books wrapped in a DCU cover! Writer Peter Milligan is a guy whose comics are always interesting, even when people hate them. INFINITY INC. is no exception. Not the hate part. The interesting part.

Howard The Duck #1HOWARD THE DUCK #1
The second Steve Gerber resurrection of the week is HOWARD THE DUCK #1. It's totally ridiculous and mean-spirited and exactly what a HOWARD THE DUCK comic should be. If you only know HOWARD THE DUCK from the fiasco of a movie, do yourself a favor and check this out.

I'd definitely check out the Goon-y ACTION COMICS #856, the awesome horror manga KUROSAGI CORPSE DELIVERY SERVICE, Tony Millionaire's SOCK MONKEY INCHES INCIDENT trade and probably a bunch of other stuff, too. So remember what I said about dilly-dallying. No time! None!
