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 The Authority, Detective Comics, Fantastic Four, Justice League of America, and a new Marvel/Evil Dead cross-over Marvel Zombies/Army of Darkness.  All that plus more graphic novels than you could shake a stick at including Daredevil Omnibus Vol. 1, Ex Machina Vol. 5: Smoke Signals, Nightwing: Brothers in Blood, and the re-release of the first graphic novel ever – It Rhymes with Lust.  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)
