I was so sick this week that not only could I not write this post on time, but I couldn't even read comics while I was in bed. Now that's sick. Reading comics while you are sick is a right of poor health. In fact, it's how a surprising amount of people first started reading comics...when they were laid-up sick. True story. Now please excuse me while I cough up my other lung.

OUTSIDERS FIVE OF A KIND WEEK 1 NIGHTWING BOOMERANG

Usually five Wednesdays in a month means one week of slim pickings for new comics. DC was nice enough to give us a weekly event in the form of the formation of the new Outsiders team. I'm aware I just typed "form of the formation." I'm trying to work more alliteration into these recommendations. Awesome amounts of alliteration.

WORLD WAR HULK #3

PUNISHER #50

I'll recommend every issue of Garth Ennis Punisher, but this one stands to be a real keeper. Don't say we didn't warn you.
