I turn 85-years-old on June 27th. I'm gonna be on the Today Show with Willard Scott and everything. This year the only thing better than the free ice cream I get from Friendly's is that new comics come out on my birthday. I'm certainly no math genius, but the way I figure it - new comics day only aligns with your birthday once every 22 years (23 if there is a Leap Year in the mix somewhere). So this is a pretty special week for me indeed. If you want to come over, they're having chocolate pudding in the home where the State keeps me. They're gonna search you for contraband at the door though, so hide your stash.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus vol. 1

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER OMNIBUS VOL 1 TP

Let's get one thing straight - If it says "Omnibus" in the title, I'm buying it. There could be a Force Works Omnibus and I'd buy it. "Omnibus" is like a four-star rating in the comics Zagat guide.

Green Lantern Sinestro Corps Special #1 cover

GREEN LANTERN SINESTRO CORPS SPECIAL #1

Hell yeah. There is going to be some serious ass-kicking in this Sinestro Corps story and it all kicks off here. That's right - the ass-kicking is kicking off.

'The Irredeemable Ant-Man: Low Life' cover

ANT-MAN VOL 1 DIGEST TP

I gotta say that this book continues to surprise me. The main character is a serious jerk-face and yet I'm still curious to see what's going to happen to him every issue. Extra points are also awarded for the reintroduction of Damage Inc. Not the Metallica song. Look it up.

WORLD WAR HULK FRONT LINE #1 (OF 6)
WORLD WAR HULK X-MEN #1 (OF 3)
World War Hulk Front Line #1 coverWorld War Hulk X-Men #1 cover
Every week. Every week I'm going to tell you to read World War Hulk.

GI Joe Special Missions vol. 1 cover

GI JOE SPECIAL MISSIONS VOL 1 TP

Wait a second...is this like the old Special Missions or the new Special Missions? I'd really like a collection of the old ones. And while I'm at it let's get going on those missing collections of the original series. And I'll take that cake I ordered now too.
