What new series are hitting comic shops tomorrow? Mike Mignola also pens a new story about the vampire hunter Baltimore, Dr. Leskovar's Remedy. ("An army of malformed vampires controls a small Croatian town, but Lord Henry Baltimore arrives to put an end to this madness, fighting his way to their creator-a twisted surgeon akin to Moreau and Mengele!")


The third Before Watchmen miniseries hits stands to boot, with Brian Azzarello and J.G. Jones' take on The Comedian.

What else is in the grab bag? There are new issues of Chew, Catwoman (preview here), Star Wars: Dawn Of The Jedi - Force Storm, Unwritten, Fables, Batwoman, Adventure Time, Daredevil, Punisher, Saga, Dark Horse Presents, Walking Dead, Avengers Vs. X-Men, and Casanova: Avaritia.


There's also Astonishing X-Men, which showcases the wedding of former Alpha Flight member/professional snoot Northstar to his boyfriend. Man, I remember picking up the Jean Grey/Cyclops wedding issue years ago. Gambit attacked the guests for the privilege of slipping the garter on Rogue (who used her powers to catch the bouquet). Oh, 1990s — even the weddings were edgy!

Hopefully these nuptials will bring similar antics, like The Living Monolith teaming up with Trevor Fitzroy, Ahab, and a bunch of other ridiculous old-school X-Men villains to steal the guests' Jordan almonds or something.


As far as bookshelf fare goes, there are the first volumes of Dark Horse Comics' Angel and Faith, DC Comics' Frankenstein, Agent Of S.H.A.D.E., and Marvel's The Incredible Hulk.

Sundry reprint material includes Jack Kirby's Challengers Of The Unknown, Frank Cho's Liberty Meadows, and Fantagraphics' showcase of Golden Age artist Mort Meskin, Out of the Shadows. 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!

I think its great to have gay comic book characters, but I am just fundamentally against marriage extravaganza issues of any kind.

I would think given the demography that most comic readers probably dont want to read a marriage issue. I want my superheroes doing shit that I dont HAVE to do - like stuff that would be impossible for non-supes. Attending a wedding is boring enough IRL - I dont need to have it soil my media outlets. I mean what sort of logistical cheesiness is going to be in there anyway? OMG the ice sculpture BROKE? ICEMAN TO THE RESCUE!!!! Biggest swan EVAR! Maybe we would even get to find out which supes have celiac disease, food allergies or special diets, because you know their wedding planner is going to flipping their shit with all of those special requests.

Of course I dont really read X-Men (Astonishing or otherwise) - but I usually dislike marriage eps on TV as well.
