That's not Ben Affleck / Just some nice Daredevil art / On the stands Wednesday. What else awaits you? / Barry Allen and HulkPool / It's Comics We Crave.
What big event comics debut this week? We've got Brightest Day 0 (the miniseries in which everyone old and dead is new and alive again!), Flash #1 (Barry Allen's new ongoing), and World War Hulks Hulked-Out Heroes 1. The latter stars HulkPool, who has the potential to become my favorite alternate-dimension oddball hero, this side of Vampire Storm and Soviet Superman.
As for others comics of note (drumroll please)...
- Siege Loki 1: Phonogram's Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie and the trickster god. Nice.
- BPRD King Of Fear 4: Hellboy fans take note, this story dredges up some plot twists from years back.
- Doc Savage 1: The Man of Bronze returns, under the aegis of Paul Malmont.
- Daredevil 506: (top) That Paolo Manuel Rivera cover deserves to be framed.
- DMZ 52, Fables 94, Unwritten 12: Vertigo's stalwart titles keep chugging along. New story arc in Fables featuring Rose Red.
- Black Widow 1: Marjorie Liu takes on Natasha Romanoff in this new ongoing.
- Daytripper 5 (pictured): Casanova's twin brother team of Gabriel Bá and Fabio Moon = worth a look.
- Punisher MAX 6: MAX Bullseye. Nuff said.
- Fevre Dream 1: A Song for Fire and Ice's George R.R. Martin brings readers a Mississippi vampire miniseries.
- Irredeemable Special 1: More backstory of the Plutonian, before he was homicidal.
- Wolfskin Hundredth Dream 1: Warren Ellis' viking fable continues.
As for notable trades, there's Alan Moore's Tom Strong Deluxe Edition Vol 2 hardcover, Dash Shaw's BodyWorld (did you see io9's interview with him last week?), and Garth Ennis' Crossed (lend it to your grandparents!).
