Is It Wednesday Yet?

Here's stuff I'm considering picking up this week.

Batman Incorporated #2 (DC)

I thought the first issue was all right, although I'm still not 100% sold on this new status quo. But Grant Morrison seems really to have some big plans (as he always does) for it, so I'll give him a chance. Yanick Paquette's art is pretty nice, although the cheesecake in the first issue was a bit intense. Hopefully that gets toned down a bit. But with a cliffhanger involving tentacles at the end of the first issue, I'm not sure what to expect.

Legion of Super-Heroes #8 (DC)

I'm having a hard time catching up on this series. I think it's because I'm simultaneously (and very slowly) making my way through the deluxe hardcover collection of The Great Darkness Saga I recently bought. So I haven't yet read LOSH #7, nor the latest Adventure Comics, which now ties into the same continuity. But I keep buying them because I have faith in Paul Levitz, or something. Which I may end up regretting somewhere down the line.

Superman/Batman #79 (DC)

Superman/Batman is a title that I don't buy religiously, but since the story arcs are usually stand alone and feature different creative teams, I pick it up once in a while when it happens to catch my interest. This issue is the first in a two-parter written by Chris Roberson, set in the 853rd Century, featuring Robin the Toy Wonder, and with a beautiful cover by Fiona Staples, so that's a lot of very good reasons to get it.

Teen Titans: Cold Case #1 (DC)

Art by Sean Murphy is pretty much all you need to convince me here.

Secret Avengers #8 (Marvel)

This continues. I don't really have anything to say about it, but I'm reading it.

Superior #3 (Marvel)

I've enjoyed the first two issues of this mini-series by Mark Millar and Leinil Francis Yu, though I haven't been writing about it yet. I think I'm going to wait until the mini-series ends before reviewing it. But so far the story's been good and the art is phenomenal.

Neonomicon #3 (Avatar)
These issues are coming out painfully slowly. Thank God there are only four issues. I have no idea what to make of the first two installments. I am simultaneously repulsed and fascinated by the depth of depravity that was reached in the final scene of the previous issue, and I can't help but wonder where this could possibly be going next.

The Traveler #2 (Boom)

This is probably the weirdest and most confusing of the three new Stan Lee series from Boom Studios. The first issue was a bit of a mess, I thought. But I decided to give each of these new series a full arc before deciding whether or not I'm going to keep reading them.
