Look...I'm not going to lie to you - there are just some weeks when not a lot of good comics are coming out. This week is the fourth Wednesday of a five Wednesday month, meaning that there is an extra week of shipping for comics and things need to be spread out a little thinner than usual. It's not like there is nothing, but there is a lot less than usual. The fact that next week is a holiday isn't helping much either. Don't forget - new comics on Thursday next week. Eh, at least you'll have time to catch up on lifting weights, watching TV and reading old books...just like when you're in prison.

COUNTDOWN #49
I'm way into Countdown. It's got action, interesting characters and Darkseid. DC's new weekly series is a real home-run so far.

SUPERMAN BATMAN VS ALIENS PREDATORS TP

So sue me. I like it when these guys all fight each other for no reason. Actually, the plots in these franchise mash-ups are surprisingly crisp. Did I mention that you get to see Superman punch an Alien? Well, you do.

CRIMINAL #6
