in Comics!

It’s Wednesday so it must be time to take a gander at the new stack of comic books fresh off the presses from DC, Marvel, Vertigo, Wildstorm, Dark Horse, and Image Comics.

This week’s fun includes Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Green Arrow, Ghost Rider, Martian Manhunter, Stormwatch: PHD and Thunderbolts.  All that plus more graphic novels than you could shake a stick at including The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive, Gunsmith Cats Omnibus Vol. 1, Invincible, New Excalibur Vol. 2: Last Days of Camelot, Robin: Wanted and Star Wars: Boba Fett – Man with a Mission.  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)
