[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1110:]]1. The New Avengers #23: Bendis may be going off of the Avengers books he has steered for so many years, but this is the way it should be done! Intrigue, crazy villains and above all else -- fighting! Only two words are needed to get you hyped about this book -- Skaar Smash!
2. American Vampire #25: Scott Snyder's blast from the past storyline continues here with Travis and Skinner going head to head to the death! Travis might be ready for Skinner but not for the revelation that awaits him. Good thing he's "cool" enough to get over it!
3. Teen Titans #7: Lobdell and Booth have created the teencentric book on the stands every month. Cool battles, cooler costumes, excitement abounds every page and the villains are just plain crazy! This is the embodiment of excitement!
4. The New Deadwardians #1: Okay, vampires and zombies have been way over used in the past decade. But Dan Abnett brings a dimension to the horror genre that is rarely seen -- Victorian crime mystery! Great read for that little something different in your diet!
5. The Mighty Thor #12: THE RETURN OF THOR! Norse gods against an army of trolls with Thor and Ulik slamming each other sonless! You want action? You got it! Plus, a long awaited reunion of two lost warriors.
