In this week's comics, Joss Whedon comes back to Buffy, there's a new spin on Aliens Vs. Predator, and Sulu gets back in the captain's chair. But most of all, there's a new chance to check out a comics classic.
More dead are rising at DC, Marvel looks back at its long history, and it's left to the indies to offer up the most interesting books of the week. As ever, these are New Comics We Crave.
Whether it's superspies, superzombies or relaunched superfranchises, there's a cornucopia of delights awaiting you at the comic store this week. And, if you're not into super-anythings, then there're still some books for you to consider, as well. Crave these comics.
It's finally happened: San Diego Comic-Con has broken comics. How else to explain the slim pickings of this week's shipping list? But that actually makes your life easier, because there're two books this week that you simply can't live without.
It's the week of San Diego, which can only mean one thing, right? All manner of new projects to premiere at the con! Surprisingly... not. But don't worry - that doesn't mean it's an entirely dull week at the store.
With so many new releases, you'd be forgiven for thinking that San Diego was this week... But, instead, just start worrying that it means that even more is headed your way in time for next week's sun-drenched shenanigans.
After the busy-ness of the last few weeks, it's not too surprising that this week's raft of new releases hitting your local comic store is much smaller than usual. But with new Star Wars and Reborn, it's not less interesting.
Hope you've been saving up your pennies recently, because this week's comics are full of new treats for you to savor, whether they're Gotham Girls, deadly alien Predators, or Barack Obama in a loincloth. Okay, maybe not that last one.
Evil wins, superheroes go bad, sidekicks go solo, time gets reset and Buck Rogers makes his comeback. Oh, and there's a Wrath of Khan comic. Is there nothing that this week's comics won't do to try and make you happy?
Hope you've got a healthy appetite when you hit the comic store tomorrow, because with comics about teen vampires, werewolves on the moon and culinary detectives, there's a lot to chew on in this week's comics. Plus new Batman.
Wondering where to get your fix of teens in tights? Look no further than your local comic store — but don't worry, there are tales of future utopias, dystopias and older superheroes awaiting you, as well.
Alien invasions, competing vampires and robots that are more than meets the eye are all populating the comics that'll be making their way to your local shelves tomorrow. What else do you need to know?
Whether you like robotic children, superheroic animals or dying detectives about to go all Fringe on you, there's something in this week's comics for you. Here's hoping you can afford it all.
It looked like a quiet week in the world of comics following last weekend's Free Comics extravaganza - but then I saw the following words and knew differently: Plan 9 From Outer Space Strikes Again.
While many comic book publishers are holding off on big releases in favor of this Saturday's Free Comic Book Day, at least one book hitting stores tomorrow is ideal material for all you io9 readers.
It's a sad week for comics this week; a week I'd hoped would never come: The first appearances of annoying X-Men Gambit are being collected to tie in with his upcoming movie debut. I'm sorry.
Never mind new issues, this week's new releases is all about the collections of some great - and some less than great - runs of favorite comics. Oh, and the return of Dazzler, as well.
After weeks of taking it relatively easy, there's only one way to look at this week's new releases: Marvel are back to wanting all of your money. But steampunk and weird goodness are available elsewhere.
