For comics shipping 12.16.09 or The Week James Cameron Finally Released A Movie. 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.

BOOM! STUDIOS

Incorruptible_01_CVRA

Incorruptible #1 – $3.99

From Mark Waid, the mind who brought you Irredeemable, comes Incorruptible, a book which will serve as an analogue to the aforementioned comic. Whereas Irredeemable was about what happens to the world when its most powerful superhero, the Plutonian, decides he’d be better off doing things however he damn well pleased, Incorruptible will center on one of the most vile villains of that Earth who turns his life around the moment the Plutonian turns his back on the world. Do not miss out on the start of this series.

DC COMICS

Green Lantern Corps #43 – $2.99

After the events of last issue, where one of my favorite Lanterns of all time died, it’s no wonder Guy Gardner becomes overcome with rage, and turns into a Red Lantern. Dude is seriously going to mess some shit up. “Blackest Night” continues, and you’re not going to want to miss out on what happens next.

MARVEL COMICS

Captain America: Reborn #5 – $3.99

Finally, the penultimate issue of this mini-series arrives, though I’m not sure the conclusion of this series means anything anymore. I mean, look, I know we all knew that Steve was coming back. I just didn’t expect him to show up in several other books before the mini-series about how he returned finished. A little bit of my interest in this book has waned, but not enough that I don’t trust Ed Brubaker to deliver a quality story. I still want to know how it is Steve makes his way back, and the only way to find out is by reading this book.

Marvelous Land of Oz #2 – $3.99

Jack Pumpkinhead and Tip’s adventure is just getting started, and I’m really looking forward to where it goes from here. Unlike the first book in this series, I’ve got no idea how this tale ends, but I can’t wait to find out.

Trade Paperback/Hardcover of the Week

Secret Warriors, Vol. 1: Nick Fury, Agent of Nothing – $19.99

Spinning out of the conclusion of Secret Invasion, Secret Warriors follows former head of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury as he teaches a new team of legacy heroes how to get things done the Nick Fury Way. Jonathan Hickman and Stefano Caselli handle the writing and art, and this book is easily a front-runner for best new book of the year. This book doesn’t require much knowledge of the characters from beforehand. In fact, many of these characters are just being fleshed out for the very first time. Secret Warriors is probably one of the best stories about a new, young team figuring out how to be heroes as they go, and you’d be remiss in not checking it out.

That’ll do for this week. See you next time.
