Paul Dini, Sean McKeever & J. Calafiore

Well, we know what the real name for this book is now: Countdown to Final Crisis. We know Final Crisis is a seven-issue miniseries coming out in May 2008 by Grant Morrison and J.G. Jones. And we know that it was a project pitched by Morrison himself and a story *he* wanted to tell. So why do we need 52 godawful shitty issues leading up to it to explain it? I have no fucking clue, but everybody’s pretty sick of it.

Mike Carey & Jock

This supernatural horror-book-meets-PCU miniseries kicked complete ass in the first issue, and given Carey’s track record I doubt it’ll let up. Intelligent, chilling, familiar and strange all at the same time. Perfect Vertigo.

Keith Giffen & Chris Sprouse

Keith Giffen takes over as regular writer after a series of one-shots, which is odd because this project was originally announced as a Garth Ennis vanity project. Except it turned out that they basically made him to do this if he wanted them to publish The Boys, and then they stopped publishing The Boys, leaving them with a Garth Ennis project with no writer. Then again, at this point the WSU can use all the ongoing plotlines it needs now that Wildcats and Authority have apparently vanished forever.

Brian Michael Bendis, Brian Reed & Jim Cheung

The fourth issue of Bendis’s Retcon Vacation, this one focuses on the Illuminati lamenting the difficulty of keeping your bitch as well as a follow-up to Final Crisis team Grant Morrison & J.G. Jones’s miniseries Marvel Boy, starring a ridiculously powerful Kree boy from an alternate universe with an attitude problem. Whether Bendis manages to stay in keeping with the character’s existing portrayals is up for grabs but the hopeful occurrence. Either way, this has been A+ superhero material and isn’t likely to cease being such.

Garth Ennis & Howard Chaykin

The Barracuda miniseries ties back in with the main book as Garth Ennis shows Punisher blowing a fuckload of people up. Also, a shock ending, and apparently a baby. Should be interesting.

Greg Pak & John Romita Jr.
