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 Batman, Blade, Gen13, Green Arrow, New Excalibur, Star Wars: Legacy, Stormwatch: PHD, Y: The Last Man, and more graphic novels than you could shake a stick at including Batman: The Greatest Stories Ever Told, The Mummy: Dark Resurrection, Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere, and Spider-Man: Death of the Stacys (Premiere Edition).  Okay, you probably could shake a stick at all of ‘em, but why bother?
