My deepest sympathies to my wallet last week – it cried and went into the fetal position knowing how many books it had to get. Then I showed it the latest issue of Thanos Imperative and all was well. Fantastic space saga as one would expect in the capable hands of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. Lots of character growth, great-looking battles, and unexpected twists. I have no idea what’s happening to the Marvel cosmic universe once this ends next month.

Too many other books to talk about, but I do highlight some goodies:

– This guy named Bruce Wayne is supposedly coming back if you look at the 10+ books that came out last week bearing his name. All of the Bruce Wayne : The Road Home one-shots were way under my radar, but it was good to see Return of Bruce Wayne back to form and taking us one step closer to what happens when a ticking time bomb gathering Omega energy returns to modern times. I’m sure there won’t be any pizza parties.

– If you’re not done with DC zombies, then Untold Tales of Blackest Night will satisfy your hunger. Apparently, we need to find out what happened to Donna Troy, Scarecrow, Animal Man, and a bunch of nobodies during last year’s epic Blackest Night event. As is the case with anthology books, you get your hits and your misses. Probably for the hardcore.

– Mark Millar is not done getting movies green-lighted as soon as new series of his comes out. Superior #1 came out (you can check out the preview for #2 here) and it definitely is not the most controversial of books if you’ve read Nemesis lately. Touching story so far of a kid with Multiple Sclerosis who is given one magic wish by a space monkey to become the super hero character he grew to love on the big screen. Yes, I did type all that AND said it was touching. Take that for what it is.
