A lot of nifty stuff is hitting the stores tomorrow, but let's just pause for a moment and reflect on the innate weirdness of Alex "Epic Realism" Ross painting Voltron. Goodness, that's bizarre. Not as weird as his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen/30 Rock mash-up, but still plum hilarious. On to the comics!
Matt Fraction's run on Defenders kicks off today. He recently described it to as an all-encompassing tale — "By the time Defenders is done, you're going to know why everything that has happened in the Marvel Universe has happened." Marvel is also printing the miniseries Villains For Hire (about the not-Doctor-Dooms of the Marvel Universe) and the mutantcentric series X-Club . Other releases this week include a reprinting of Greg Rucka's Captain Atom stories and a new Voltron series from Dynamite. Thought Bubble Anthology, a charity tome featuring work by Mike Carey, Becky Cloonan, and others, is out too.
