Is It Wednesday Yet?

Batgirl #18
New comics this week!

On my pull list:
  • Adventure Comics #523 (DC)
  • Batgirl #18 (DC)
  • Batman and Robin #20 (DC)
  • Birds of Prey #9 (DC)
  • Flash #9 (DC)
  • Red Robin #20 (DC)
  • Northlanders #37 (Vertigo)
  • Casanova: Gula #2 (Icon)
  • Magus #2 (12-Gauge)
  • Starborn #3 (Boom)
Whoa! This is a big (and expensive) week for me. Good thing I decided to drop Knight and Squire, which also comes out this week.

Batgirl is the newest addition to my pull list. I bought it last month because it was a done-in-one story featuring Damian, and it was so awesome that I immediately decided to add it to my list. This issue is another done-in-one (I think) featuring Klarion the Witch-boy.

I dropped Batman and Robin when Morrison's run ended and Paul Cornell took over. I love Cornell's Action Comics, but his story here seemed like a rushed filler to give the new team of Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason some breathing room before they took over the title. That break is now over and here they are. I'm still a little bit on the fence about it, but the preview at The Source was pretty good, so I decided to give it a try.

Flash #9 is the first official Flashpoint-related title (unless you count the Time Masters: Vanishing Point mini-series that recently ended with a "to be continued in Flashpoint"). Geoff Johns is going to start setting things up for this summer's gigantic crossover event.

Red Robin #20 is the first part of a two-issue crossover story that concludes in next month's Teen Titans. Preview here.

Northlanders #37 starts a new story called "The Siege of Paris," with art by Simon Gane.

Also noteworthy:
  • Onslaught Unleashed #1 (Marvel)
  • Power Man and Iron Fist #1 (Marvel)
  • Wolverine #1000 (Marvel)
  • Lil' Depressed Boy #1 (Image)
  • Sherlock Holmes: Year One #1 (Dynamite)
  • Buck Rogers Annual #1 (Dynamite)
Onslaught Unleashed is a four-part mini-series featuring Young Allies and Secret Six, written by Sean McKeever, with art by Filipe Andrade. Preview here.

Power Man and Iron Fist is a five-issue mini-series written by Fred Van Lente, with art by Wellinton Alves and Nelson Pereira. Preview here.

Wolverine #1000 is a "super-sized special" featuring a lot of creative people, for five bucks. I'd be tempted if my pull list wasn't already so heavy this week. Preview here.

And here are links to previews for Lil' Depressed Boy, Sherlock Holmes and Buck Rogers.
