Angel & Faith
Angel and faith #1
It been quite some time considering that I’ve been caught-up on reading the goings-on of the Buffyverse, but the identify team of Angel and faith is one I will always root for. What really clinches the deal for me, though, is the stellar Rebekah Isaacs on art! Her a lot of recent projects include DV8 with Brian wood and Magus, published by 12 Gauge Comics.
Gate 7 volume 1 Tp
I haven’t read or really seen much by Clamp in the past five years or so, but the artwork for this cover looks amazing, and it’s being released just months after being released (as a collection, I presume) in Japan, so I imagine this is what a lot of newer Clamp stuff may look like that we haven’t readily had a chance to see here in the States.

I really, really want to see a Dustin Nyugen art book from DC. I also wouldn’t mind having a better idea of who’s going to have work in this comic, but hopefully in the next few weeks we’ll get a lot more details. For a lot more awesome Nguyen covers, check out Batgirl #24 and Superman beyond #0.
This is the final issue of Kelly sue DeConnick’s run, and I’m really looking forward to reading it after her great Osborn mini-series and Captain America and the secret Avengers one-shot recently!
Secret six #36
For now, all I’m going to say about the DC relaunch is this: I hope we still get new Gail Simone secret six in September and beyond. Simone’s writing on this book is especially twisted and incredible for a DCU book, and I think the relaunch could only benefit from this book and may be hampered without it. Also, be sure to check out Birds of Prey: The death of Oracle HC!
Young Justice #7
We finally get to see Artemis. I really wish it hadn’t taken until the eighth issue (remember, the series started with issue #0).
DC Super-Pets: Midway Monkey Madness
DC Super-Pets soft covers!
All of these books feature the incredible art of Art Baltazar and are sure to entertain the entire family*!
*- That is in no way a guarantee, except maybe a guarantee that you’re cranky.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1
Dan Duncan’s pencils look great, and I’ve always liked what TMNT pieces Kevin Eastman has painted, so I am figuring the layouts Duncan is working from will be great, too. added bonus: the TMNT utmost Collection volume 1 HC! If you’re trying to find something a little different, you can still buy the TMNT Adventures volume 1: Heroes in a half shell soft cover from Archie.
Invincible Compendium volume 1
Forty seven issues of Invincible in a handy, inexpensive soft cover tome; if you’ve been waiting to try this book, time’s up! now is the time to jump in with both feet!
The lots of Adventures of Miranda Mercury
The lots of Adventures of Miranda Mercury hard cover
I’ve been waiting over three years for this book!!! To say I’m looking forward to having this book in my hands is an understatement. stunning artwork and a fun script are just where this book starts to entertain!
The Bionic Man
The Bionic man #1
I’m not going to lie: I only included this for my pal, Jimmy “P.S.” Hayes! If you took pleasure in Kevin Smith’s take on the green Hornet, I’d absolutely recommend this book, as it’s from the same team! also from Dynamite enjoyment this month is storehouse 13 #1, a show I’m pretty fond of!
Mockingbird tiny Bust
Mockingbird tiny Bust
I’m about 98% sure my friend Tim would break someone’s kneecaps to get this tiny bust. I don’t blame him! While I like Mockingbird’s contemporary design, this is still a great design brought to three dimensions well.
Pop! Heroes green lantern Sinestro vinyl Figure
Pop! Heroes: green lantern vinyl figures
While I’m not a big fan of the motion picture designs, there’s something especially & adorably evil looking about Sinestro in Pop! vinyl form! Also, be sure to check out the Pop! ad Icons!
That’s it for this issue! Talk at you next time!
