New Avengers #31
According to Marvel’s marketing department, this issue will spontaneously cause all comic stores to combust on Wednesday morning, forming a flaming pentagram pattern across North America used to bring Mephisto into our world, who will then hold a parade down Fifth Avenue where Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Millar will stand on top of a float throwing action figures of Jim Shooter to the audience. Maybe, instead, it’ll just be a really fucking good story. But the countdown to the crossover of the century ever since Civil War #7 begins NOW!

World War Hulk #1
Now, this looks really promising. The setup is simple: Dr. Strange, Reed Richards, Black Bolt and Iron Man shot the Hulk into space and now he’s really damned mad. As much as comics fans the world over seem to be hoping for 48 pages of the Hulk anally raping Tony Stark until his internal organs turn into a puree, this is far more likely to be an emotionally taut, well-written, beautifully drawn (Romita and Janson are a winning combination and Christina Strain’s colors are always strong) story that’s really about friendship, making mistakes, the consequences of judging people and the responsibilities of power.

Or anal rape.

Countdown #46
Sigh.

Superman/Batman #36
What a mess this book has turned into. It’s had no conceivable identity since Jeph Loeb left, which isn’t saying much since that identity was just “Jeph Loeb’s cum-catching kleenex.” We just came off an arc with Despero and a bunch of aliens that barely anybody even remembers, now a Metal Men arc that already contradicts 52 (Batman doesn’t know who Will Magnus is? What?) and coming up is… Alan Burnett’s comics debut for a six-parter? What is this book’s mandate? When are we moving past fill-in arcs? Why does it exist? I have no idea.
