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 B.R.P.D.: Garden of Souls, Fell, Green Arrow, Gen13, Legion of Monsters: Man Thing, Newuniversal, and Wonder Woman.  All that plus more graphic novels than you could shake a stick at including All Star Superman Vol. 1, Civil War, Crisis Aftermath: The Spectre, Grendel: Devil by the Deed, Sensational Spider-Man: Feral and Star Wars: Legacy Volume 1 – Broken.  Okay, you probably could shake a stick at all of ‘em, but why bother?
