Dark Tower Gunslinger Little Sisters Eluria #1

Peter David, Robin Furth (w) Luke Ross (a)

The next installment of Stephen King’s Dark Tower saga is here courtesy of David and Furth. Roland is near death after an attack from mutants (I wonder if it was those from San Francisco) and is taken in by some Sisters. Turns out however the Sisters are not exactly running a missionary if you know what we mean. Roland is probably wishing for the Night Nurse right about now.

Detective Comics Annual #12

David Hine (w) Agustin Padilla (a)

Are you jonesing for some new Batman Incorporated stories? Well then you picked up the right book as Hine and Padilla go all international with the gang as what is billed as a typical recruitment trip turns into what they call overseas an “incident.” Two Batman’s and The Question guarantee a fun read.

Fables #100

Bill Willingham,  Mark Buckingham (w/a) Chrissie Zullo, Joao Ruas, Steve Leiahola (a)

Fables hits the century mark this week and chooses to celebrate in style with a 100-page epic. The Fables are returning home to Fabletown. You know who would probably love to return home just one time but can’t, Kal-El of Krypton. I’m just saying. Here this Fables flaunt their trip back and our protector Superman has to settle for Smallville, not that Ma’s apple pie is anything to sneeze at. Besides Fabletown, New York will become a battle ground with the Dark Man. You have been warned.

What If Wolverine Father

Rob Williams (w) Greg Tocchini (a)

Good old Logan is never going to win any Father of the Year contests, unless of course he threatens to kill the entire voting panel. However, with that understanding, Williams takes on Logan and Daken’s relationship with the starting point being that Logan raises Daken from the very beginning. Yeah I’m thinking Daken is still going to be a homicidal nutcase. Just keeping it real.

Batman The Widening Gyre HC Volume 1

Kevin Smith (w) Walt Flanagan, Art Thibert (a)

Smith is at it again, penning another Bat-tale as this time the story is spurred by Bruce Wayne getting reacquainted with his former girlfriend Silver St. Cloud. She tries to teach Bruce about trust while he tries to convince her that running around in tights and cowl is perfectly normal for a gazillionaire – just ask Bill Gates. Collects the entire six-issue mini-series.

Irredeemable TP Volume 5

Mark Waid (w) Peter Krause (a)

This one has the Horner, Plutonian, Paradigm and Modeus in it. Confused? Well it’s understandable. It’s also why you NEED to pick up this collection, which includes a mad God backed up against a wall, and no is safe. Exciting isn’t it?

Superman Batman Big Noise TP

Joe Kelly (w) Ardian Syaf (a)

Collects issues #64 and #68-72 of Superman Batman. It’s always a pleasant time when Superman and Batman team up in this awesome book. You are usually guaranteed cocktails with Bruce and cow-tipping with Clark. Then Bruce, because he had all those cocktails, starts hitting on Lois. Obviously Clark gets a little jealous and attempts to burn a hole through Bruce’s body. That’s when he pulls out the kryptonite. Speaking of the green rock, turns out in this book the duo needs to contend with an alien dude who wants to continue a 1,000-year old war on Krypton. I don’t think anyone told him it’s not there anymore.

Sweet Tooth TP Volume 2 In Captivity

Jeff Lemire (w/a)

It’s a tale that is as old as, well who are we kidding, there are not many stories out there with a hybrid of people and animals. Leave it to Lemire to fill that void. “In Captivity” collects Sweet Tooth #6-11 as we learn how a devoted husband became a ruthless mercenary (must have married Martha Stewart). Meanwhile, Gus meets a scientist who is studying that fun plague that wiped out most of the world.
