Amazing Spider-Man #651

Dan Slott (w) Humberto Ramos (a)

Let’s get ready to rumble. The Hobgoblin story continues, but what we are really looking forward in this one is the Spidey-Kingpin rematch. It’s the duo’s first meeting since “Back in Black.” All this plus we see Mac Gargan return, and you will never guess what costume he’s wearing now (hint – it’s not Lane or Venom, because c’mon you were you thinking it was Lane).

Batgirl #17

Bryan Q. Miller (w) Pere Perez (a)

Not sure if you have been checking this title out, but it’s very entertaining and worth $3 of your money to take a look. Miller has done a phenomenal job with Stephanie Brown’s reign as the Batgirl. This month she gets her first “official” job from Batman Inc. But wait, there’s more as Damian decides to tag along. Good times should ensue. Enjoy.

Black Panther Man Without Fear #514

David Liss (w) Francesco Francavilla (a)

This is novelist David Liss’ second installment of Black Panther The Man Without Fear, as the former King of Wakanda is now working the mean streets of Hell’s Kitchen. And when we say working, we mean “working,” turning tricks and everything. But seriously, Luke Cage guests as T’Challa takes on the mob while Vlad the Impaler takes a turn as crime lord. This is a good time to check out what Liss is doing while the Black Panther keeps Matt Murdoch’s book warm for him.

Casanova Gula #1 (of 4)

Matt Fraction (w) Fabio Moon (a)

Casanova is back, or is he? The second volume of Fraction’s time-trippy saga as E.M.P.I.R.E. and W.A.S.T.E. seek to find out not where, but when is Casanova Quinn. My guess, he’s hanging out with Jim Kirk and a couple of Orion slave girls. I’m just saying, it seems like something Casanova would do, although I am not sure how much Kirk would be willing to share. This one is being published in 4-D psychocolor. Don’t know what that is? Ask Brian, he’s our expert on 4-D, Lincoln and Frankenstein – he’s a little quirky.

Daredevil Reborn #1 (of 4)

Andy Diggle (w) Davide Gianfelice (a)

Daredevil is dead. Long live Daredevil. I mean seriously, even in comic book terms the body of Matt Murdoch can not be cold yet. Has there even been enough time for rigor mortis to set in? Is guess the demand for his return was so great that we get this issue. Or maybe he did not die in Shadowland?

Justice League Generation Lost #17

Judd Winick (w) Aaron Lopresti (a)

If you have not been paying attention, Max Lord came back during Blackest Night. His first order of business was to make everyone forget about him, except for the original members of his Justice League International group. Those members of course are going out of their minds trying to convince everyone who Max is, and trying to track him down. This week they have a new enemy to contend with – Power Girl. She is saying, Max who? Winick has really redeemed himself with this title.

Spawn #200

Todd McFarlane, Robert Kirkman (w) Tons of Different People (a)

There are milestones, and then there are MILESTONES. Spawn hitting issue 200 is a big deal. Don’t believe me? Well, whatever. It was June of 1992 when Spawn first hit bookshelves. Now it’s January 12, 2011, 17 years later and there is a new Spawn rocking the world. And of course, where there is a Spawn, there is the Clown. It’s a different book from that first issue, but there is so much history and layers to this story that now is a perfect time to come back, bite the apple and do the Spawn!

Batman Joker’s Asylum TP Volume 2

Many Cooks in the Kitchen (w/a)

So nice they decided to do it twice. The Joker is back talking about the fun days of Arkham Asylum and telling all about his buddies – Riddler, Harley Quinn, Clayface and Croc. The first one was a swell time and volume two was more of the same. It’s a different look at the Batman ‘verse, from a twisted perspective.

Siege Dark Avengers TP

Brian Michael Bendis (w) Chris Bachalo, Mike Deodato (a)

It was the best of times. The Green Goblin was running around as the Iron Patriot with the keys to the country, deemed the United States’ protector after taking out the Skrull Queen in Secret Invasion. Of course, he was psychotic, and this is his downfall, and that of his team. Good times.
