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 The Brave and the Bold, Hellblazer, Legion of Monsters: Werewolf by Night, Red Menace, Spider-Man Family, Superman, and more graphic novels than you could shake a stick at including Annihilation Book 1, Checkmate Vol. 1: A King’s Game, Danger Girl: Back in Black, Justice Vol. 2, Nexus Archives Volume 5, and X-Factor Vol. 1: The Longest Night.  Okay, you probably could shake a stick at all of ‘em, but why bother?
