I’m a Leaf on the Wind. Unfortunately a leaf will not hold up under all the comic goodness hitting shelves this Wednesday – Lex Luthor’s return in Action, Batman Beyond, Wonder Woman #600 and so much more. Jump for all the details!

Abe Sapien Abyssal Plain #1 (of 2)

Mike Mignola, John Arcudi (w), Peter Snejbjerg (a)

Be there for one of Abe Sapien’s first B.P.R.D. missions as he seeks an ancient relic aboard a Soviet U-boat. Yeah, this won’t end badly.

Action Comics #890

Paul Cornell (w), Pete Woods (a)

Lex Luthor is back! Need we say anymore?

Astonishing X-Men #34

Warren Ellis (w), Phil Jimenez (p)

Part four of “eXogenetic” featuring those nasty genetically-augmented Brood. If the X-Men dream, the nightmare will come true it seems.

Batman Beyond #1 (of 6)

Adam Beechen (w), Ryan Benjamin (a)

Bringing the characters from the animated series to life, this mini-series will delve into Bruce Wayne’s past as someone is targeting his old foes. And they thought that was a good thing. Silly rabbits.

Captain America 1940s Newspaper Strip #1

Karl Kesel (w), Butch Guice, Karl Kesel (a)

It’s a 1940’s daily comic strip starring Cap and Bucky in a comic book format. How could you ask for anything more?

Death of Dracula #1

Victor Gischler (w), Giuseppe Camuncoli (p)

And you thought the Heroic Age was going to have an impact on the Marvel Universe. Not so fast as Dracula’s son decide its time for their turn at the wheel.

Flash #3

Geoff Johns (w), Francis Manapul (a)

Another Rogue is killed. Barry, where did we go wrong?

Invincible Iron Man Annual #1

Matt Fraction (w), Salvador Larroca, Carmine Di Giandomenico (a)

This book promises to be so much better in your hands, turning the pages. I’m just saying. It’s been awhile, but Fraction has finally gotten around to telling a Mandarin tale. Fun should be had by all, except Tony probably (I’m guessing).

Justice League of America #46

James Robinson (w), Mark Bagley, Rob Hunter (a)

An all-new five-part JSA crossover events starts here and continues next month in Justice Society of America #41. Added bonus, Robinson and Bagley are doing all five crossover issues. Enjoy.

Secret Avengers #2

Ed Brubaker (w), Mike Deodato (a)

Not looking good for Cap’s new squad as they are on a mission no one can know about, and one of their own has decided to betray them. I’m guessing Moon Knight. He’s a wild card if I ever saw one.

Wonder Woman #600

J. Michael Straczynski, Geoff Johns, Gail Simone (w), George Perez, Phil Jimenez, Joe Madureira (a)

Another week, another DC character milestone. This time it’s Wonder Woman’s turn for the anniversary edition.

Batwoman Elegy Deluxe Edition HC

Greg Rucka (w), J.H. Williams III (a)

Collecting Detective Comics #854-860, Batwoman takes on Alice from Wonderland. Intrigued, you should be.

Disneys Alice in Wonderland GN

Alessandro Ferraro (w), Massimiliano Narcisco (a)

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland adapted in comic form.

X-Necrosha HC

Selene’s back. She’s pissed. And she’s raising the dead. Marvel’s answer to Blackest Night. Collects New X-Men #32, X-Force #11 and #21-25, New Mutants #6-8, X-Men Legacy #231-234, X-Force/New Mutants: Necrosha One Shot and X-Necrosha: The Gathering.
