It’s Wednesday so it must be time to take a gander at the new stack of comic book titles hitting the shelves today.  So get your comic book geek on, and let’s take a look, shall we?

This week’s fun includes Daredevil, Guy Gardner: Collateral Damage, Justice League of America, Loveless, Rokkin, What If? X-Men Age of the Apocalypse, and more graphic novels than you could shake a stick at including Blue Beetle: Shellshocked, The Huntress: Dark Knight Daughter, Moon Knight Vol. 1: The Bottom, and X-Men: Deadly Genesis.  Okay, you probably could shake a stick at all of ‘em, but why bother?

So true believers, sit back and relax as we take a look at the comics hitting your local newsstands, bookstores, and comic shops this week, ‘Buddha style.  (Those cornball jokes were thrown in for free)
