New comic day tomorrow, what do we got? First off, author Andy Diggle and artist Mark Buckingham team up for a brand new Doctor Who comic book from IDW Publishing. Marvel publishes the Minimum Carnage miniseries, which sees Venom and Scarlet Spider teaming up against the least polite of Spider-Man's symbiote foes.


There's also the miniseries Daredevil: End of Days, which has such hornheaded luminaries as Brian Michael Bendis, David Mack, Klaus Janson, and Bill Sienkiewicz teaming up for a semi-alternate reality story of Matt Murdock's final moments:

Revealed at it ends for the Man without Fear! In the near future, investigative reporter Ben Urich has one last story to write — what was Matt Murdock's the final secret?

Other potentially razzle-dazzle reading material out today includes The Boys, Uncanny X-Force, Fatale, Fashion Beast, Action Comics, Animal Man, Before Watchmen: Rorschach, Dial H (preview here), Swamp Thing, Sweet Tooth, and the final issue of Avengers Versus X-Men.

For graphic novels, there are reprints of the first volume of I, Vampire and Neil Gaiman and Chris Bachalo's Death, the second Walking Dead compendium (which collects issues #49-96), the Marvel Zombies omnibus, and the second hardcover of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' Criminal. And as usual, here's the list of everything being released to comic stores tomorrow, and you can find your nearest comic retailer here. Happy reading, gang!



ZOMG, how could you leave out the Man-Thing Omnibus, collecting all of tormented genius Steve Gerber's '70s metaphysical muck-monster shenanigans? Suicidal clowns, jailbait swamp witches in metal bikinis, hippie cultists, Lovecraftian monsters, even Howard the Goddamn Duck... what more could anyone possibly want?

And at just short of 1200 pages, it's truly a Giant-Size Man-Thing. No inadequacy issues here! (Except for the ones written by Chris Claremont. Hee.)
