What Looks Good?

Nothing beats coming home from a hard day at the office and unwinding with a tall, ice cold comic book. What looks refreshing this week?

Batman vs Two-Face TP -- One of the main benefits of having your favorite villian appear on the big screen is the inevitable tie-in merch.

Tiny Titans #4 -- I don't know if anything can top the Jericho bit from last issue, but we shall see.

Captain Britian and MI13 -- Time to see how Cornell handles this new Excalibur. Except it's not Excalibur. Sorta. Also, I hope there is not too much "Secret Invasion" nonsense.

The All-New Iron Manual -- It's like OHOTMU, only for techies and engineers. Who happen to be Iron Fans.

Guardians Of The Galaxy #1 -- Rocket Racoon!

Iron Man: Legacy of Doom #2 -- I think this is about as close to a "no brainer" as you can get for me.

The Phantom #23 -- Continuing Moonstone's biggest story ever for The-Ghost-Who-Walks.

Project Superpowers #3 -- After the debacle of the FCBD Special, I just hope this makes more sense.

And, since I obviously didn't get to go to the shop last week, here's a retro-themed look at what looks good from last week.

House of Mystery #1 -- Could this signal the return of other DC Weird books? One can only hope.

Tor #1 -- I don't know why this caveman saga keeps drawing my interest. Maybe because it was a DC Explosion book at one point?

The War That Time Forgot #1 -- War Heroes! Versus! Dinosaurs!

Invincible Iron Man #1 -- Still a little shaky on a Shellhead comic that the "mainstream comic press" likes so much, but we'll see soon enough.

Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas #1 -- There was a pretty cool Shellhead story set in Vegas in the last days of volume 3. I imagine this one will sell better.

Nova #13 -- I'm still riding on the post-"Annihilation Conquest" wave, so I guess now is the time to re-check out this very cool series.

Wow. Just wow. That's way, way too much stuff! Yikes!

I actually picked up Invincible Iron Man last week, purely on impulse. It's definitely one more for the movie fans, but it's Fraction so I gotta give it a chance.

I've read some of the Phantom stuff from Moonstone, actually bought a two-parter where he fought some voodoo zombies or something. Good stuff.

Two-Face is your favorite villain?! Nice! He's in a three way tie with Scarecrow and Dr. Doom for me, heh.

I'm hearing really good things about Tiny Titans, I may have to check it out. Also looking forward to the Shazam book. It looks great.

War that Time Forgot I normally would've been all over, but it has two words on the cover that will forevermore prevent me from buying comics that they appear on.....Bruce Jones. No. Thank. You.

I'm a bit biased on Tiny Titans due to my tertiary-at-best connection to the series, but so far I have been really amused by it, a pure silliness level. Unfortunately, a cameo by the Outsiders may not be able to happen. But then again, does anyone really want that besides me? I think not.

And yeah, Two-Face is my favorite Bat-baddie, one of the best in the whole superhero pantheon. I kinda became obsessed with him during the first run of B:TAS, and that plays through to today. Needless to say I was disappointed in Jones' portrayl, but remain very optimistic about Eckhart.
