( A weekly quick pick of the five titles that should reside at the top of your pull list. IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER! )
1. Hit-Girl #1 : The Millarworld just keeps turning, and finally -- Mindy Macready gets her own book! Taking place between Kick-Ass Vol. 1 & 2, Hit-Girl gets to make a man out of Kick-Ass -- just like her father would have wanted! This blood bath of a book is all you need to get you through the week!
2. Hypernaturals #1 : Fan favorites, DnA, are finally loose from the confines of editorial shackles and years of confusing continuity. Now they can unleash their TRUE cosmic power in the form of -- Hypernaturals! This star spanning story will get you over all the Marvel cosmic mediocrity!
3. The New Deadwardians #4 : Not to be outdone by himself, Dan Abnett, continues to create one of the best Alt. History books on the racks today! Part murder mystery, part social commentary, this book about the "Young" and the "Restless" is amazing! And no, I do not mean the soap opera! Wait, how would I know that? Umm... move on to number four, please!
4. Before Watchmen: Nite Owl #1 (0f 6) : JMS, CBN E.I.C. Matt McGloin's favorite sparring partner, tells an in depth tale of when old and new Owls meet. Weaving in scenes from Watchmen, makes this issue feel like a true homage to the Alan Moore classic!
5. American Vampire #28 : Scott Snyder changes the status quo for the entire series in this issue! When Pearl and her husband are attacked, there is only one thing left to do -- kill 'em all! Awesome first issue of the new "The Blacklist" arc!
