This Week’s New Releases and Recommendations

Well, we’re in week two of another five-Wednesday month which means that this month’s releases are stretched a bit thin to account for the extra Wednesday. This amounts to just a couple of new books for me to recommend unreservedly this week, but there are a slew of new books on the racks, so your mileage may (happily) vary.

Speaking of your mileage, which books are you most excited about this week? Is there a diamond in the rough that I’m sleeping on?

JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #12 cover

JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #12

It all ends here…bestselling novelist Brad Meltzer’s yearlong relaunch of the Justice League title, that is. Don’t expect Meltzer to leave the book quietly, however, as DC is teasing a “shocking cliffhanger” in this extra-sized, 40-page issue.

NEWUNIVERSAL VOL 1 EVERYTHING WENT WHITE HC cover
NEWUNIVERSAL VOL 1 EVERYTHING WENT WHITE HC

This is not your dad’s New Universe. Warren Ellis has done what many (myself included) would have previously thought impossible: made the New Universe cool. Yes, you read that correctly. Marvel’s embarrassing attempt to create a “new universe” from scratch back in the ’80s is not only relevant in the hands of Warren Ellis, but it’s also undeniably cool. This hardcover collection of the first six issues is your chance to join the party.
