What to Watch for Wednesday

Posted by Luke Brown On April - 21 - 2009


For comics shipping 04.22.09 or The Week We Talked To Planets, Baby. Every week I’ll check Diamond’s shipping list to see what you absolutely, positively, no doubt about it need to spend all your hard earned cash on at the Local Comic Shop.



Detective Comics #853

The second part of Neil Gaiman and Andy Kubert’s “Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?” arrives this week, and hopefully it will live up to its billing. It’s an extra-sized issue for $3.99, which is nice, but I’m not so sure how I feel about this story yet. It may not be as revered as some of the great Batman stories of the last twenty years, but neither Gaiman nor Kubert have ever let me down. I expect all of you to be picking this up.


Scalped #28

The penultimate chapter of “High Lonesome” hits shelves tomorrow, and it looks like Jason Aaron is finally going to show all of us loyal readers exactly what transpired on that fateful night when two federal agents were gunned down on the Prarie Rose Reservation. Don’t tell me you’re thinking about missing out on this $2.99 book.



Incredible Hercules #128

Herc versus the Dark Avengers? Oh, you’re totally picking this $2.99 book up.


Immortal Iron Fist #25

Only three issues of the regular series left, and I’ll be damned if you’re going to miss a single one. This $2.99 book is on your buy pile, or we don’t know each other anymore. Got it?


Kick-Ass #6

I know both of the creators working on this book are also working on about a gajillion other things, but the infrequency of this story is really starting to wear on me. That said, when Millar and JRJR are working on a book, no matter how messed up the shipping schedule I’m buying it. So should you. It’s a pretty damned fun story, and for $3.99 you’re getting real quality work.

Trade Paperback/Hardcover of the Week


Resurrection, Volume One

Earth is invaded by aliens. They have their way with the planet for years. One day, they’re gone. Marc Guggenheim, David Dumeer, and Douglas Dabbs ask, “What happens next?” A lot of sci-fi invasion stories always cover the war, but they usually never speak about what happens when it’s all over. Collecting the first seven issues of Oni’s surprise hit, this $6 trade (yes, you read that right) will finally attempt to answer the questions society faces when trying to rebuild after an epic conflict. Where does humanity go next? Find out here. This would be the perfect place to jump on in anticipation of the new Resurrection series launching this year <nudge nudge>.

That’s gonna wrap it up. See you next week.
