While DC’s Flashpoint may be hitting its stride, Marvel’s event Fear Itself is also having a big week! The big release is of course FEAR ITSELF #3., the third installment in the seven-issue main series. But we’re also getting Fear Itself: Deep #1 and Marvel U tie-in’s Thunderbolts #158 and Herc #4!
As The Worthy’s campaign of mayhem burns worldwide, Sin comes closer than ever at completing the one task her father never could – the complete conquest of the Marvel Universe! It’s been really good so far. We’ll see if issue #3 can keep it up!
FEAR ITSELF #3 (OF 7)
Written by MATT FRACTION
Penciled by STUART IMMONEN
The blockbuster Marvel event of the year continues! Sin leads the most audacious attack on American soil the world has ever seen as global panic sets in and we fall sway to the power of fear itself. On Asgard, Loki hatches the scheme to end all schemes. And everywhere, the Serpent’s presence is felt…never moreso than when a major Marvel hero falls at his hands. The shock ending to end all shock endings…as the cycle of evil stretching millennia is at last completed.
Marvel Comics’ Fear Itself #3 comes in on Wednesday!
And if you’re not moved by either Flashpoint or Fear Itself, I have to tell you we’re getting more issues of Rocketeer Adventures #1 in stock! This was the under-the-radar book that Rusty picked as his best book of the week when it came out and almost pulled off a coup for the #1 book of the month!
As Rusty said, "Three short stories. No continuity. No building a plot. Although each short had a beginning, middle, and end. And they all ended on a high note. John Cassaday… Mike Allred… Kurt Busiek and Mike Kaluta… Just three flat out cool shorts by some of the biggest names in comics today"
So far we’ve only seen the first issue of Flashpoint, but that one issue ranked as the best comic book of May! Well, this week DC’s big event really hits its stride as we’re set to get FLASHPOINT #2 and the start of FOUR of the tie-in mini-series! We’ll see how they stack up to that first installment! Here’s what we’re set to get, along with Flashpoint #2:

DC Comics’ Flashpoint releases come in on Wednesday!
DC’s event of the year Flashpoint hits its stride this week as we’re set to get not only Flashpoint #2 (and yes, we still have Flashpoint #1′s in stock), but also three of the tie-in mini-series: Abin Sur the Green Lantern #1, Batman Knight of Vengeance #1 and Secret Seven #1! It’s also the last week of the month, which certain parties have been calling the Jonah Hex-Sweet Tooth week… and so it is!
Marvel’s got its big event this week, too, with Fear Itself #3 and Fear Itself Deep #1! We’re also looking forward to a couple other high profile books, including the second issue of the much-debated Moon Knight and SHIELD #1, which starts the second volume of Jonathan Hickman’s unique superhero tale. Plus, Heroes for Hire #8, Uncanny X-Force #11, Thunderbolts #158 and more!
Throw in a new Hellboy series, the final issue of Halcyon and Previews and you’ve got a solid week!
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER creator Joss Whedon brought Buffy back to Dark Horse in this direct follow-up to season seven of the smash-hit TV series. This has been a big bestseller and critically acclaimed to boot. With the recent start of Buffy Season 9, there has never been a better time to read Season 8!
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER VOL. 1 TP
THE LONG WAY HOME
Since the destruction of the Hellmouth, the Slayers – newly legion – have gotten organized and are kicking some serious undead butt. But not everything’s fun and firearms, as an old enemy reappears and Dawn experiences some serious growing pains. Meanwhile, one of the "Buffy" decoy slayers is going through major pain of her own.
The Top Twenty rolls on! As always, plenty of comics to choose from this month. We got the start of DC’s big event in Flashpoint #1, the end of the outstanding X-Men Elseworlds-esque tale Age of X, the continuation of Fear Itself and a brand new start for GI Joe! So how did they all stack up against one another? On to the lists!
In case this is your first time, the Top Twenty is an ongoing monthly look at two ordered lists comprising A) The top twenty single issues of the month and B) the top twenty current series in comics. How did we come up with the lists? Well, the Cosmic Comix Top Twenty Committee took several things into consideration: Best Book nominees, poll winners and poll votes, sales numbers and general buzz levels surrounding each book. Yes, your input is not only appreciated but also counts toward the rankings. So let us hear it!
Top Twenty Comics of May 2011 The Best Single Issues
FLASHPOINT #1 – The people have spoken… and they have spoken LOUDLY. Flashpoint crushed the competition in the poll so much that we couldn’t give it anything but a #1 spot for the month.
ROCKETEER ADVENTURES #1 – An all-star line-up of creators and several charming and well-told stories make this our second favorite book of the month.
CHEW #27 – Issue #27 coming out just after #18? Doesn’t even matter. Chew rules. And it will have to work really hard to get out of the top five.
X-MEN LEGACY #248 – Bringing the Age of X to a close. It was one of the best X-events in a while and virtually everyone who read it, loved it.
DETECTIVE COMICS #877 – A poll victory pushes this one close to the top. Batman escapes the massive car crusher as Scott Snyder and Jock continue to dazzle.
BATMAN GATES OF GOTHAM #1 – And speking of Scott Snyder, the first issue of his Batman mini-series came in second in the poll to Rocketeer. A tough loss because it was great.
FF #4 – Doom frowns! And Jonathan Hickman’s FF continues to be an excellent, very well-written story.
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #60 – GL Corps is representing the War of the Green Lanterns, but also it was just better! RIP Mogo. You were a fine planet.
UNCANNY X-FORCE #10 – We wanted to include issues #10 AND #9, but that didn’t seem fair so #10 will have to do the work for both of them. Looking forward to the Age of Apocalypse!
COBRA ONGOING #1 – The last and best of the three new GI Joe series to launch this month. Not surprising that it was the best since writer Mike Costa’s previous series GI Joe: Cobra could go down as the greatest Joe series ever.
WOLVERINE #9 – It may have been best book in Rusty’s heart, but not much love at the polls. Too bad because it was highly entertaining!
BATMAN AND ROBIN #23 – Judd Winick takes over the writing chores and brings back the Red Hood!
WALKING DEAD #85 – Kind of a middle issue in the whole "Is Carl gonna make it?" saga, but still excellent.
PUNISHERMAX #13 – Another great issue. This whole Old Man Castle thing is really, really good. Jason Aaron might just be creating the perfect folow-up to Garth Ennis’s epic run.
FABLES #105 – Always. The North Wind and Bigby have a long conversation which ends with the North Wind deciding to take on Mister Dark again. Battle next issue. This issue Mrs. Sprat gets turned into a hottie. An evil hottie. But a hottie nonetheless.
DAKEN DARK WOLVERINE #9 POINT ONE – Gotta give this one some love for resetting the stage for Daken, who totally needed it.
AMERICAN VAMPIRE #15 – Vampires, World War II, the island of Tai Pei. Loving the vibe on this series. Highly recommended!
BATMAN INCORPORATED #6 – Probably the best issue of the series so far. New artist Chris Burnham comes on board and takes the title to the next level!
FEAR ITSELF #2 – Another solid issue of Fear Itself. This event is really shaping up nicely. Lots of action, lots of destruction.
GI JOE VOL 2 ONGOING #1 – Not as good as Cobra, but still pretty good. This is really a great time to get on board with GI Joe. The competition to find the next Cobra Commander begins! S/he who kills the most Joe’s, wins.
Top Twenty Titles of May 2011 The Best Current Series
CHEW – A flash-forward issue doesn’t faze the mighty Chew.
UNCANNY X-FORCE – The team and its purpose are now well-established, the books are coming out like gangbusters, and it’s great.
WALKING DEAD – Still no resolution to Carl’s possibly grave injury, but still as compelling a comic as you’ll find.
SCALPED – No Scalped this month. Hurt its ranking… but not too much
FABLES – Continues to be good… almost unreasonably so.
AGE OF X – It was so good that the Epilogue won Best Book.
COBRA – The new GI Joe stuff exploded this month. All three titles were solid, but Mike Costa’s Cobra was just better.
DETECTIVE COMICS – The darkness – and rock ‘n roll-ness – of Scott Snyder’s run on Detective keeps it at the #1 Bat-book.
WAR OF THE GREEN LANTERNS – A big death in the GL Corps!
AMERICAN VAMPIRE – The current run set in World War II has won many people into this book’s fanbase.
FF – A very good series stays very good. Evil Reeds all over the place!
PUNISHERMAX – If they keep putting ‘em out, we’ll keep putting it in the Top 20! That’s real talk.
FEAR ITSELF – Big old war. The event could arguably be called Blitzkrieg USA instead.
UNCANNY X-MEN – The Quarantine story was good, but this Kitty Pryde story has been really good!
INVINCIBLE – No Invincible this month. Too bad, so sad.
SWEET TOOTH – Always flirting with the Top 20. Made it this month!
ANNIHILATORS – Three solid issues in a row! Look for the mini-series to wrap in fine fashion.
DEATH OF SPIDER-MAN – Whether you’re reading Ultimate Spidey or Ultimates vs. Ultimates, the Ultimate Universe has it going on right now.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN – The Avengers Acedemy is taking its toll.
ECHO – Gotta get that last issue this month. It’s gonna be awesome.
Others receiving votes for the Best Current Series:
We’re doing a little something different with the Whiz Bang this week. Instead of focusing on a title or titles that maybe you haven’t read or don’t own, this week we’re going with something that many people HAVE read and currently DO own: Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ dark superhero classic WATCHMEN.
So this week — from Wednesday, June 1, to Tuesday, June 7 – Watchmen TPBs will be 40% OFF! With a price of $19.99, 40% off makes it only $11.99 for a story that many consider to be the greatest comic book story ever published!
Like we said, a lot of you out there have read this and might even already own it. But this Whiz Bang is designed for you to spread some comic love! Pick up the Watchmen trade at 40% off and put it in someone else’s hands! Someone who maybe hasn’t been schooled in the classics! Someone who might have seen the movie a couple years ago and never read the source material!
Or of course if you haven’t read it yourself, this is the time! You can pick it up for just 12 bucks!

It all begins with the paranoid delusions of a half-insane hero called Rorschach. But is Rorschach really insane or has he in fact uncovered a plot to murder super-heroes and, even worse, millions of innocent civilians? On the run from the law, Rorschach reunites with his former teammates in a desperate attempt to save the world and their lives, but what they uncover will shock them to their very core and change the face of the planet!
Following two generations of masked superheroes from the close of World War II to the icy shadow of the Cold War comes this groundbreaking comic story – the story of The Watchmen.
July sees Jonathan Hickman return to his creator-owned books as he writes the four-issue The Red Wing, for artist Nick Pitarra. The concept has futuristic fighter pilots battling through time, after the past was taken over from an invading force from a different space and time. CBR did an interview with the writer/creator in case you were interested in finding out more. I was onboard with the words “Hickman” and “creator owned.” Side note: Did you know it has been four years since Hickman’s last creator-owned comic came out? Crazy.
No one has any idea what DC has planned post-Flashpoint. Most titles coming out in August, Flashpoint-associated or otherwise, end their respective storylines that issue. For instance both Detective Comics and Superboy end their story-arcs in August. Rumors persists of a line-wide reboot of some kind, all the comics going to #1 issues, or…perhaps something else?
Bleeding Cool is talking about something no one knows about yet called Justice League Dark. First of all the Justice League always seemed more milk chocolate to me than Dark, but kidding aside, Geoff Johns and Jim Lee are set to spill the beans on June 11th. My best guess? Johns and Lee on JLA. Either way the duo claimed they’ll shed light on many issues including the DCU post Flashpoint and the future of Superman. Stay tuned.
Last week I read Madame Mirage, which was a good standalone superhero story. While most of the books I read are standalone stories, there are a few continuing series I enjoy. This week is a special two-fer as I decided to check in with a couple of books that I get on a yearly basis. The first was GRANDVILLE MON AMOUR, written and illustrated by Bryan Talbot, published by Dark Horse, and the second, OKKO VOL. 3: CYCLE OF AIR, written and illustrated by Hub, published by Archaia Studios Press.
I read the first Grandville book and loved it so much that I couldn’t wait to read the second. Even though I was excited about the book, I also felt a certain amount of trepidation. Second books tend to fall flat and not have the same impact as the original story. I am happy to say that is not the case here!
Grandville picks up a few weeks after the conclusion of the first book as Detective Inspector LeBrock is called to solve the case of a killer who not only escaped from prison in London, but managed to travel to Grandville (Paris) and continue his murderous spree. As always, nothing is what it seems and the answer to the mystery may lie in the final days of the revolution after London finally freed itself from France’s tyrannical rule 23 years ago.
The best thing I read this week was the letters pages in WALKING DEAD #85. Absolutely hilarious. Carl got shot in the head! And while the last couple of issues of Walking Dead probably deserve some of the criticism it’s been getting, there is no other current ongoing storyline that I am more interested in right now. Carl got shot in the head! Can’t wait to see how it gets resolved. And if, and that’s a big if, if they do jump forward in time, even six months, well, wow, can’t wait to see.
Anyhow. Let’s talk WOLVERINE #9! Thought it was the surprise issue of the week. Whatcha think? Yes? No? I am curious.
Get Mystique. Final Repose. Wolverine wants revenge on Mystique for sending him to hell! And can’t say as I blame him.
But what made the book for me was Lord Deathstrike. Who’s that? Nobody seemed to know. What we do know is that he is one wicked assassin!
Shot a bullet through the planet! From Argentina to China! And of course got his target. Shot Mystique from across the rooftops. And then exploded the bullet! Bullet control. Explode. Awesome!
Plus the issue was chock full of nice bits. Mystique finding a awfully convenient roll of duct tape. How’d that get there!?!?! Mystique impersonating a policeman. I need to confiscate some of your guns! Budda Budda Budda! The final confrontation between Mystique and Wolverine. Snikt! Straight to the heart. And ended with Mystique’s dead body being auctioned off. Five million dollars! Going once… going twice… Sold! To the gentlemen in black!
Pace was great. Totally frantic issue. Great roller coaster ride and just a lot of fun. Did I mention Lord Deathstrike shot a bullet through the planet! Loved it.
It wasn’t one of the biggest releases of the week, but it must have packed the most punch! Yep, I’m talking about Rocketeer Adventures #1, which won last week’s poll, just beating out the first issue of Scott Snyder’s new Batman mini-series, Gates of Gotham.
This week, we’ve got a SLEW of books for you to choose from. Rusty was right when he mentioned in his nominees post that I would have a hard time… because I did! There were just a lot of quality titles this week and I wanted them all to be represented on the poll. From X-books like X-Men Legacy #249, Wolverine #9 and Uncanny X-Men #537 to Walking Dead #85 to Detective Comics #877 to even MORE Marvel books like FF #4 and Astonishing Spider-Man Wolverine #6, you’ve got plenty to choose from! But enough of this chatter!

Even with this BOUNTY of choices, I still don't see my favorite! Which I will name in the comments. (0 Votes)
Andy’s gonna have a tough time with the poll this week. How many choices can he possibly list? The first 10 Marvel books I read last night I thought were all pretty darn good. Of course, then Sarek showed up and broke the streak. Sarek? Spock’s dad from Star Trek? Too obscure? Doesn’t matter. Lots and lots of potential nominees this week. Not sure there was one over-the-top, blow-my-mind winner but I could easily list 20 comics I enjoyed this week. Here’s 10.
AMERICAN VAMPIRE #15 – It’s 1943. Vampires and Army Men are fighting it out somewhere in the Pacific. Series continues to grow on me. Eisner Award Nomination for Best New Series. Why would the Japanese military build a prison camp on a vampire infested island? Read it and find out!
COBRA ONGOING #1 – The last two issues of GI Joe Cobra to come out were books of the month! An impossible standard to be held to. This was a very good first issue. Still totally on board with my Cobra. Centered around Baroness which I thought was a good pick. And introduced us to Breaker, a Cobra spy deep in the heart of GI Joe. Faceless profiteering is not what Cobra stands for. Gunpowder. Plastique. The destruction of all the webs and structures, which keep the lazy at the mercy of the venal. That is what Cobra is!
DAKEN DARK WOLVERINE #9 POINT ONE – If any title needed a point one issue, Daken did. Been all over the place. Rob Williams comes on board as the new writer and cleans house. Daken is in charge of Madripoor. Daken is over his daddy issues. And the issue was framed with the idea that Daken only destroys. That’s who he is and really always has been. But now his mindset is changing. He will now create. And I hope Mr. Williams can mirror that sentiment in future issues. Destroy equals mindless fighting and rehashing old plots. Create equals a well thought out, multi-layered story, with intrigue and excitement. The stage to do that was totally set in this issue. Got my fingers crossed.
DETECTIVE COMICS #877 – Rock-n-roll Batman continues as he explodes out the biggest car crusher of all time! Those cars were piled six high! Crunch! Sweet Batboat. It’s godlike. Walks on water.
FF #4 – Told you Sue Storm was awesome. How are you so calm with all those bad guys in the other room? Who? The Wizard? Diablo? High Evolutionary? Victor Von Doom? Do you know what they all have in common? Through the years, I’ve beaten every one of them. Over and over. Badly. So you tell me… Do you think I should be afraid of them… or should they be afraid of me? Tell it like it is, Sue!
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #60 – Part eight of the War of the Green Lanterns. Also got GREEN LANTERN #66 (Part 7) and GREEN LANTERN EMERALD WARRIORS #10 (Part 9) this week. Liked them all. They read together seamlessly. But going with GL Corps as the best of the bunch. Really appreciated the explanation about why Mogo is so important. He’s responsible for dispatching rings to the new recruits. Didn’t realize that. And loved the thousands of rings floating around. But when John Stewart goes Black and Purple (Ravens colors!) and blows up Mogo, that was just awesome!
IRON MAN 2.0 #5 – Fear Itself tie-in. War Machine was barely in it again. The Prince of Orphans, Danny Rand and the rest of the Immortal Weapons did show up. Which I loved. And if you thought Washington DC was in tough shape, and it is, check out Beijing, China! And is Fear Itself totally mis-titled or what? Fear, Shmear! How about the destruction of the Marvel Universe as we know it! Okay. That’s a little long. How about Blitzkrieg USA? Now that I like.
WALKING DEAD #85 – Still no Carl resolution. I did feel that Rick’s “new” plan — stay, fight, build — sounded a lot like Douglass’ “old” plan. Expand the walls. Fortify the town. Whatever. See if it works any better this time around. And what’s up with Abraham? That was flat out cruel. If the girl you are cheating on is walking out the door and you don’t care… let her! But no. Wait. Listen. Glad you were there for me but you’re not the only woman left on earth. So get out. She was leaving anyway! Letters page! Best part of the book! All about Carl getting shot in the head! Gabriel writes in. Dear Mr. Kirkman. What did you do to Carl, you heartless bastard!? Why, why, WHYYYYY????? Please, spare Carl, take his stupid father instead!Dan puts it more succinctly.Hardcore, man. Read ‘em! They were great!
WOLVERINE #9 – Was the book I wanted to make sure everyone read this week. Please hold all comments on said book until tomorrow!
X-MEN LEGACY #249 – Still lots going on but essentially a "Who does Rogue love?" story. Magneto wins out. Which I totally prefer over Gambit. And could someone please explain to me what’s going on on the cover? UNCANNY X-MEN #537 also came out this week. Thought Legacy was a little better but the Uncanny cover, Screaming Silence Bleeding Violence, was fantastic.
Diamond Select continues the longest running collector line in toy history! After 39 series of Marvel Minimates, we’re once again getting geared up to tackle the latest Marvel movie – Captain America: The First Avenger! Series 40 features the main characters from the next Marvel movie blockbuster: Captain America & Bucky, Captain America & Red Skull, and Howard Stark & Hydra Soldier!
Also be on the lookout for the short-packed Specialty Market exclusive, Peggy Carter & Hydra Soldier 2-pack! Each Minimate stands 2.5" tall with 14 points of articulation and a variety of removable and interchangeable parts and accessories.
The Smallville finale aired on Friday, May 13, bringing an end to the 10-year run of the series that often polarized fans. Whether you were a fan of the show or a hater, Smallville never achieved the level of cheese that the show Lois and Clark did (though it sometimes came close), and ultimately there was more fun in episodes of Smallville than we ever got in Superman Returns. I found the finale to be fun, irritating, uneven and housing both those things I loved about the series and those things I disliked about it.
I first discovered Smallville while I was deployed to Afghanistan. The locals had a bazaar once every Sunday and they sold, among other things, bootlegged DVDs for a $1 a disc. I bought the first three seasons of Smallville for a little over $20. As I sat there in my Mad Max world, watching Smallville when I had a break between shifts, I became a fan for life.
Speaking of movie love, the Thor movie’s been getting plenty of love over the past few weeks! Most people seem to agree that it was about as enjoyable as you could want. Not too heavy, some great Loki stuff in there, and plenty of action. So we’re gonna keep the Thor bandwagon rolling by giving a shout to this week’s MIGHTY THOR #2! It’s the second installment of the hot new series by superstars Matt Fraction and Olivier Coipel. And if you missed the first issue, never fear! We’ve still got ‘em in stock.
MIGHTY THOR #2
Written by Matt Fraction
Pencils by Olivier Coipel
The Silver Surfer has arrived on Earth with a message: Galactus is coming! Thor is the only one powerful enough to stand against the might of the World Eater but he has been weakened from his journey to the World Tree! Loki and Sif join forces to protect Asgard on Earth, but can they manage without Thor? The secrets of the Galactus Seed can not stay buried for long…
Marvel Comics’ Mighty Thor #2 comes in on Wednesday!
It’s a big time for the Green Lantern. A movie coming out on June 17, trailers for said movie in full rotation on the tube, and of course a major event in comic books: WAR OF THE GREEN LANTERNS! I have to bring it up because tomorrow we’re getting not one, not two, but THREE installments of the event! That’s right, look for Green Lantern #66 (Part 7), Green Lantern Corps #60 (Part 8) and Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #10 (Part 9)!
Also, as you can see, each comic has a Green Lantern movie banner running across the top of it. In fact, this is true for just about every DC Comics release this week, so don’t get confused thinking Strange Adventures #1 or Xombi #3 is part of the War of the Green Lanterns! Ha.
Tons of good stuff set to come out next week so let’s get right into it!
From DC, look for a sea of green as we’re looking at Green Arrow #12, Green Lantern #66, Green Lantern Corps #60 and Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #10! Also look for the Doomsday story to continue in Action Comics #901. Plus, one of our favorite series of last year will be collected in the DV8 Gods and Monsters TP.
From the House of Ideas, also plenty of good stuff, but we’ll start with Astonishing Spider-Man Wolverine #6! (The last issue of the series and issue #5 was a Best Book winner.) Plus, Mighty Thor #2, Venom #3, Captain America #618, FF #4 and plenty of X-Men action: Uncanny X-Men #537, X-Men Legacy #249, Wolverine #9 and more!
Last year, writer Brian Wood and artist Rebekah Isaacs teamed up for what would become one of the best — if not the best — mini-series of the year with DV8: GODS AND MONSTERS. It’s set in DC’s WildStorm Universe utilizing old school WildStorm characters, but that really doesn’t mean much: this is an entirely new story. Compelling, well-written and when read together like this? More than the sum of its parts. It comes in on Wednesday!
DV8: GODS AND MONSTERS TP
The super powered losers, freaks and masochists of DV8 have seen a lot, but it’s nothing compared to this! As Gem Antonelli (a.k.a. Copycat) is debriefed in a holding cell, the story of how eight troubled teens were briefly gods of a prehistoric world unfolds in this collection of the eight-issue miniseries!
Some of our most popular Whiz Bangs this year have included Marvel Premiere Hardcovers, generally available for a mere $10.00! We did it back in February and we did it back in January. Well, we’re happy to do it again this week with six Marvel Premiere HCs for just $10.00 each!
As usual, the sale is one week long, from Wednesday, May 25, to Tuesday, May 31! And as you know, normally these hardcovers go for $20.00 or $25.00 apiece, which makes this Whiz Bang worth OVER 50% OFF!
