1.12.11 Releases: The Sound of Crickets Chirping

I guess at some intuitive level, I always knew this day would come. There isn’t a single book coming out this week that I regularly buy, nor are there any books I’m strongly interested in. In even the most dire times, there’s always been at least one. But, I don’t see anything listed this week that will likely make it home. In fact, it’s been a chore to muster up even a single cover image that I have even passive interest in. I mean, really, look at my choices here. Dark Horse is offering up more in the endless BPRD line, which I gave up a couple years ago. At DC, it’s something something Green Lantern residual Brightest Day crossover garbage or a new issue of Wonder Girl, because, yeah, people are clamoring for a Cassie Sandsmark series. If Wonder Woman can’t even support her own series, how is Wonder Girl going to fare? Image continues their weekly Walking Dead reprints, which is cool, and Spawn hits #200, which is notable as one of the original Image books. Though I think the last issue I actually bought was, uhh, #10? Was that the one with Cerebus, around the time Dave Sim and Neil Gaiman and all those guys played with the McFarlane toys (pun intended)? Marvel continues to strip mine their successful properties, offering up an Avengers Poster Book, along with their forays into licensing, with some Orson Scott Card deal. The only real hope I can see is The Sixth Gun: Volume 1 (Oni Press), which I’ve heard some decent buzz about. Despite reading the FCBD issue and not being that wow’ed, I might check it out in utter desperation. What a ringing endorsement I am for comics this week.
