cass, can you not

Comics I'm looking forward to this week

Because it's a breathtakingly beautiful combination of Planetary, the Renaissance, and the less annoying bits of the Marvel mythos: S.H.I.E.L.D. #5

Because, boring Vandal Savage-ness aside, Lex Luthor is on a veritable roll of awesomeness (he's human, he loves his robo-Lois, he's smart as hell, and he's kind of crazier than usual but aware of that): Action Comics #896

Because maybe, just maybe, they are going somewhere interesting with this: Osborn #2 (although, truth be told, nobody has written a properly smart Osborn since Ellis was writing him, or maybe some of the early bits of Dark Reign).

Because, although Hydra and Leviathan are boring, I keep hoping Nick Fury will do something interesting: Secret Warriors #23 (related rec: read the G.I. Joe Cobra books; it's a very nice depiction of what something like Hydra should look like these days).

Because I'm a Batman fan, and hope springs eternal: Batman The Dark Knight #1, Detective Comics #872
