HEROES HCI just realized that if I put exclamation points after everything, my weekly New Releases column will have all of the excitement of a Jack Kirby comic! See what I mean! This is great!
Now...behold! What lurks beneath the opening paragraph?! A list peppered with pictures of unequaled proportions! It's.....THE LIST!!!

HEROES HC
A big hardcover collection of the online HEROES comic. The main reason to get this is that it's packed with Tim Sale art from the show. Also, when the writer's strike is still going on and there are no more new HEROES episodes, you can read it and pretend you're watching TV!
UNCANNY XMEN #492

UNCANNY X-MEN #492
The second part of the giant mutant crossover, MESSIAH COMPLEX. Should I expect big things from an X-Book crossover? Nope! Do I still get my hopes up for some epic multi-book goodness? Of course! It doesn't hurt that this thing is written by the always awesome Ed Brubaker and drawn by the recently awesome-ified Billy Tan.

ROBIN #168

ROBIN #168
Guess what? Ra's al Ghul is back! Who saw that coming?! The guy with a pit made for resurrection makes a "surprise" comeback in the first part of a 7-issue crossover between the Bat-titles. I'd suggest reading last week's Batman first, though, as this issue makes absolutely no sense without it. Or maybe that's just because it's a Peter Milligan comic!

Y THE LAST MAN #59There's a ton of other great stuff coming out this week as well.
Y THE LAST MAN #59
The penultimate issue of one of the best series around.
BIG QUESTIONS #10
In this one, two groups of birds converge at the site of a downed airplane. Much trouble ensues.
OMEGA THE UNKNOWN #2
A satisfying issue that begins the series' departure from the original.
HOWARD THE DUCK #2
Howard the Duck and M.O.D.O.K.!
HANNAH MONTANA CINEMANGA VOLS 3-4
This is just for Seacord. He doesn't have time to find things on the internet, what with being incarcerated all the time.

Don't take my word for it, though! Check out the complete list on the next page.
