Two highly-anticipated Batman and Thor trade collections ship this week along with a bevy of other titles that should make a dog salivate, but not pavlov’s dog (he just likes bones). Hit the jump for all the details.
Zeb Wells, J.M. DeMatteis, Joe Kelly (w); Chris Bachalo. Max Fiumara, Michael Lark (a)
Two regular Spidey titles in one week! Wells and Bachalo “Shed” story arc comes to a close in issue 633 and leads into Amazing #634’s the “Grim Hunt.” Both have to deal with the Lizard, and more … (don’t you just love the “and more?”).
Gail Simone (w), Ed Benes, Adrian Melo, Mariah Benes (a)
What a way to start a new series, by allying your new super-hero squad (no pun intended) with the Penguin. Oh yeah, this will end well.
Geoff Johns, Peter Tomasi (w), Various (a)
Uh what is Black Lantern Firestorm doing in the Brightest Day? Guess you are just going to have to read this issue to find out, Yo!
Brian Michael Bendis (w), Stuart Immonen (a)
The Heroic Age is here, long live the Heroic Age as New Avengers restarts here!
Zeb Wells (w), Ibraim Roberson (a)
Chapter 11 of Second Coming. Last chapter Scott called an audible and asked Charlie to work with his boy Legion in overcoming the insurmountable odds that are stacked against our X-people.
Jeph Loeb (w), Arthur Adams (a)
The mystery continues and deepens as the world continues to recover and heal from the events of Ultimatum. Who is this new winged-person, friend or foe? Only one way to find out true believer – Excelsior!
Grant Morrison (w), Tony Daniel, Sandu Florea (a)
Collects Batman #676-683. This is it, the story that ends Bruce Wayne.
John Layman (w), Rob Guillory (a)
How’s the olds saying go, you are what you eat? Well wait until you see what Agent Chu eats next, and where that takes him.
Collects Hulk #14-18. It’s a Code Red as one person might know the identity of the Red Hulk and X-Force is protecting that individual. Smells like a recipe for fun!
J. Michael Straczynski (w), Marko Djurdjevic (a)
Includes Thor #601-603 and Thor Giants-Size Finale. This collection is Straczynski’s finale on Thor, and what a send off as Loki’s twisted plans are finally revealed with a team-up with Latervia’s own crazed-monarch (drum roll please), one Victor Von Doom!
