This Weeks New Releases and Recommendations

It’s such an exciting time to be a comics fan…if you’re in San Diego for Comic Con. The rest of us have to sit around and wait for news to leak back from the show. While we wait there are a few quality new releases to help us pass the time.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5 cover
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #5

It’s so rare that something you have such high hopes for not only lives up to the hype, but actually surpasses any notion you had. Buffy Season 8 is so much like having the show back on the air that I keep checking my DVR for episodes and then I remember it’s a comic. Then I make a sandwich. Then I check my DVR again. Then I make prank phone calls. That’s a pretty average night for me.

Alan Moore Wild Worlds cover

ALAN MOORE WILD WORLDS TP

There are a lot of you out there sleeping on how good Alan Moore’s work on books like Wild Cats and Supreme was. At some point you’re going to read that stuff and post on this site about how much you owe us for recommending these titles to you. Then you’re going to want to read this collection of Mr. Moore’s other WildStorm work, which isn’t as awesome, but is still real, real good.

Batman #666 cover

BATMAN #666

Grant Morrison tells this evil tale of Batman’s son Damien. You’d better be listening to Iron Maiden or Slayer when you read this.

Immortal Iron Fist vol. 1 cover

IMMORTAL IRON FIST VOL 1 LAST IRON FIST STORY PREM HC

This has gotta be a candidate for book of the year. And I think $20 hardcovers are a pretty good deal.

Black Summer #1 cover

BLACK SUMMER #1 (OF 7)

Warren Ellis has a new series about some super people who work for the U.S. Government. Then one of them slaughters the President and things get a little tense. Warren does a kick-ass job with this kind of stuff, so expect Black Summer to be excellent.

Here’s the full list of titles on the shelves today:
