For comics shipping 12.03.09 or The Week Thanksgiving Delayed My Comics. Every week I’ll check Diamond’s shipping list to see what you absolutely, positively need to spend all your hard earned cash on at the Local Comic Shop.

AVATAR PRESS

Supergod #2 – $3.99

Most of southeast Asia is in ruins, and the culprit is an artificially created angel who thinks it’s talking to God. Nuclear winter is on the horizon, and this series is just starting. Warren Ellis has shown time and again that he’s able to turn superhero conventions on their heads, and this series continues in that tradition. I’m curious where it’s all going, and you should be too. Definitely check this out.

DARK HORSE COMICS

Empowered Special – $3.99

Continuing Dark Horse’s one-shot-palooza comes this stand-alone entry starring Adam Warren’s voluptuous heroine, Empowered. Warren’s one of the most underrated creators working today, and his Empowered is one of the most entertaining graphic novel series currently being produced. Normally this story is only told in manga digest style, so getting a single issue is a bit of a bonus. While you may scoff at the clear T and A imagery visible on the cover, know that inside you’ll find some biting satire, and awesome art.

DC COMICS

Greek Street #6 – $2.99

A new storyline starts here, so this would be the perfect time to jump on board with one of the most interesting new comics this year. Milligan and Gianfellice do not disappoint.

Jonah Hex #50 – $3.99

Darwyn Cooke guest pencils on this momentous fiftieth issue, and that alone is reason enough to make this a must buy. Factor in that Jonah Hex is a very solid comic from Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, and you’ve got yourself a pretty good deal. Don’t worry about not being up to speed, virtually every story of this series is self-contained, so this should make for some highly enjoyable reading. And who knows, you just might find another book you’ll want to read monthly.

Scalped #33 – $2.99

Shit is about to go down. The Hmong gang arrives on the rez, and things are not going to go well for Dash. Not that they ever have, but this time, it looks really, really bad, as opposed to just regular bad.

MARVEL COMICS

The Marvels Project #4 – $3.99

We’re getting closer and closer to finding out just how Captain America meets up with the rest of the early Marvel heroes, but that’s not the only reason to be reading this book. Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting have been putting out one of the more engaging stories Marvel’s publishing, and despite it being a fairly high profile event, it’s been flying under many people’s radars. Trust me, don’t miss out on this book.

Siege: The Cabal – $3.99

It all starts here. I have no idea what’s going to happen when Dr. Doom, Norman Osborn, Loki, and the Hood take one another on, and at the same time fight against Asgard, but it’s sure going to be awesome to see. Brought to you by Michael Lark and Brian Bendis.

Trade Paperback/Hardcover of the Week

13456_400x600

Mirror’s Edge – $19.99

Collected this week is the six-issue mini-series based on the cult hit video game, Mirror’s Edge. I’m really looking forward to this because I absolutely loved the game, and can’t wait to revisit the world. Apparently this is a prequel of sorts explaining how the lovely Faith came to be a Messenger. Niko Henrichon did covers for this series that were just gorgeous, and even though he didn’t do the interiors, I’m still giving this book a shot.

That’ll do for this time. W2W4 will return to its regular schedule next week.
