in Comics!

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 Action Comics, City of Others, Daredevil, Green Lantern, Iron Man, Wolverine, and more graphic novels than you could shake a stick at including Firestorm: The Nuclear Man: Reborn, Jack of Fables Vol 1: The (Nearly) Great Escape, Marvel Adventures The Avengers Vol 2: Mischief, Showcase Presents: Green Lantern Vol 2, and Stan Lee Meets… 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.  (The snide asides were thrown in for free)
