What's in ye olde comic shoppe tomorrow? First off, we have Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson's new miniseries for Image Comics, Happy, which promises some equine idiosyncrasies:

Meet Nick Sax — a corrupt, intoxicated ex-cop turned hitman, adrift in a stinking twilight world of casual murder, soulless sex, eczema and betrayal. With a hit gone wrong, a bullet in his side, the cops and the mob on his tail, and a monstrous child killer in a Santa suit on the loose, Nick and his world will be changed forever this Christmas. By a tiny blue horse called Happy…


Other debuts this week include DC Comics' Batman spinoff series Talon ("Meet Calvin Rose, the only Talon ever to escape the grasp of the Court of Owls. This former assassin just wants to live a normal life, but that's impossible, since he's being hunted by his former masters!") and the publisher's rejiggering of Rose & Thorn for National Comics. ("Can a teenage girl with a dark secret, readjusting to life after being institutionalized, learn how to live again?")

For returning series, there are new issues of Star Trek/Doctor Who, Punisher, Wolverine and the X-Men, Adventure Time, Angel and Faith, The Goon, Mind MGMT, Batman Incorporated, Before Watchmen: Ozymandias (preview here), Justice League Dark, and Mars Attacks (preview here).

For graphic novels, we have the third volume of Wolverine and the X-Men on hardcover, the third volume of the Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novels, and reprints of Carla Speed McNeil's Finder: Talisman and Mike Mignola's Joe Golem And The Drowning City. Also out tomorrow is Matt Wagner and Simon Bisley's new graphic novel The Tower Chronicles:

The Tower Chronicles is the tale of John Tower, a supernatural bounty hunter who tracks down the creeping shadows that the modern world has all but forgotten. His harrowing missions lead him across the globe and into the darkest recesses of mankind's most dangerous places to banish a wide variety of poltergeists, demons, and other unfathomable evils to free his troubled patrons.


Rounding out the bookshelf haul is a Showcase reprint of Amethyst: Princess Of Gemworld, the fourth hardcover volume of American Vampire, the hardcover edition of Chris Roberson and Rich Ellis' Memorial, the first volume of Doctor Who/Star Trek, and the eighth Walking Dead hardcover. And as usual, here's the list of everything being released to comic stores tomorrow, and you can find your nearest comic retailer here. Happy reading, gang!



I keep forgetting that there are Star Trek comics. I started watching The Next Generation, I show I HATED being forced to endure growing up, on Netflix during my workouts recently and I fell in love with it. Now that I'm almost through with the series, I'm dragging my feet and making anxious noises because even though Deep Space Nine and Voyager and whatever might be great shows, I am extremely attached to my Enterprise crew. (And yes, I know some of them show up in other stuff, but it's not the same!) I'll have to give the comics a try, though usually I only like to read comics when they're completed so I can pick them up in big collections and read without interruption.
