This Week’s New Releases & Recommendations

You really do learn something new every day. This week I learned some new things about going to prison. It seems that there are different kinds of prisons out there – some bad, some really bad, and some where you can order room service. First I read in the Chicago Sun-Times that Bears defensive lineman Tank Johnson spent more than $700 on junk food during his two-month sentence, including 162 beef sticks, 40 honey bun sweet rolls, 35 summer sausages, and 35 bags of barbeque potato chips. He also “ordered” nine tortillas, six packs of refried beans, and nine packages of jalapeno cheese spread. This was all in addition to the food he was getting as part of his stay. You can get stuff to make nachos in jail? Awesome. And then Paris Hilton said something about passing up the opportunity to pay to go to a different – and I expect more hotel-like – prison because she was keeping it real or something. So now, with a possible summer stay at the penitentiary of my choice, I’ve decided to pick up a few trade paperbacks this week just in case I can’t trade a carton of cigarettes for the current World War Hulk issues. Jail is so much better than HBO makes it look.

Aliens vs. Predator Omnibus Vol. 1 TP cover

ALIENS VS PREDATOR OMNIBUS VOL 1 TP

Yeah, I know I was talking about this last week with Superman/Batman/Aliens/Predator but this TP has all of the classic AVP stuff that should have made for an awesome “”R” rated movie a few years back. I’m such a sucker for when franchises fight.

Catwoman: When in Rome TP cover

CATWOMAN WHEN IN ROME TP

Loeb/Sale Bat-universe stuff is required reading. There will be a test.

Batman: Turning Points TP cover

BATMAN TURNING POINTS TP

Collecting the series that explored the relationship between Batman and Commisioner Gordon over the years, including the time they went on vacation in Cabo San Lucas (not really). Greg Rucka, Chuck Dixon and Ed Brubaker deliver the goods.

Bullet Points TP cover
BULLET POINTS TP

This is a fantastic “What If…?” style collection from J. Michael Straczynski. The premise is that Ben Parker and the doctor responsible for the Super Soldier Serum are killed before Steve Rogers can become Captain America (it makes sense, trust me). All kinds of things get messed up from there and we get treated to a Marvel Universe very different than the one we know. This series was a great read.
