Here's a howdy do!
It's Batwoman #5 week, I know that's hardly impartial but once upon a time you really could count on
books shipping on the same week year in year out.
Honestly does anyone know what week Daredevil ships on?-Marvel take note please.
Right that's out the way, lets take a gander at the kaleidoscopic pleasures that await you upon our humble acrylic shelves.
DC brings us a Darwyn (Watchmen 2?) Cooke drawn Shade #4 and another lovely issue of Frankenstein Agent of Shade.
Marvel's quintet of X is joined by Scarlet Spider #1 (be kind to it one fears it may not be long for this cruel world of creeping attrition.)
Lobster Johnson The Burning Hand #1 looks a handsome addition to this weeks booty to me.
Whispers #1 comes from the Midas womb of Mrs Luna.
Flying solo from his brother, Joshua graces us with the most intriguing new release of the week.

daubs his way down the rabbit hole.Got to be honest I've only given it a flick and it looks like 'Nonsense' in the finest Carroll and Lear manner.In this original graphic novel Batman meets his foe The Mad Hatter for the very first time – landing The Dark Knight in Wonderland. Is it real or some strange lazy dream from a balmy afternoon? Only Sam and Bruce Jones know for sure.
Like the mottled headstone of a dearly departed leprechaun Pannini have dropped Marvel's Epic of 2011 on our door this very day.Fear Itself is BACK! Come back, come back calm down it wasn't that bad was it?
Bow thy head in mock solemnity and witness the darkest day in the 616 Universe!
