This was a great struggle to find five books to discuss – which you would think wouldn’t be the case given all of the Flashpoint and Fear Itself tie-ins that have been coming out. Fortunately this week, I have exactly 5 books on the pull list:


5) Uncanny X-Men #538
Kieron Gillen has been getting rave reviews ever since he took on this title. I unfortunately am coming late to the party, but given the small amount of books I have this week, now is as good as time as any to give it a shot. I’ve been wanting to for a while after seeing Marvel getting spotty with this book after their Second Coming arc last year.


4) Hellblazer #280
Another book I’ve been off and on, but willing to jump back in. One thing you can say about the book is it’s had a consistent presence and is mindful of its continuity. Something to fear when Constantine’s DCU counterpart makes his presence known.


3) Flashpoint : Wonder Woman and the Furies #1
Another round of tie-ins gives us the Wonder Woman side of the equation in the battle between Amazons and Atlanteans. I’m hoping to see a really gung-ho personality in Diana and putting her in the hands of two of my favorite writers in Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning is the icing on the cake.


2) Flashpoint : Deadman and the Flying Graysons #1
I have no idea what this is about and yet Cliff Chiang’s cover is enough to draw me in.


1) Batgirl #22
Let’s enjoy these last few moments with Stephanie Brown while we can because it will all come to an end for her come this September. In this issue, she goes on her Batman Inc. assignment and goes on an adventure with Squire. Expect much bollocks.
