Kicking off a four-day weekend with a bag!
- The Massive #27 (Dark Horse): #26 ended on a MASSIVE note. What’s been lost–what’s been an afterthought, really, despite the title!–is finally found.
- Mind MGMT #26 (Dark Horse): Some spectacular moments in #25–none more so than Dusty’s Army rolling through with a promise to Meru.
Mind MGMT #26
- Bodies #3 (DC/Vertigo): Loved #1 enough to name it a Top 5…
Being a bit choosy this week, but maybe not choosy enough in some spots.
- Batman & Robin Future’s End #1 (DC): It’ll be in my bag, but I couldn’t care less. If that makes me a heretic, so be it.

That’s something Busiek is very good at: creating sympathetic characters in a finger snap. Looking ahead: I’m already anticipating the…
Back to work tomorrow! Best way to make up for it? Comics!
- The Names #1 (DC/Vertigo): Peter Milligan’s plate is filling up quickly. Good for him–better for us. Here, he’s offering up a recent widow who’s taking in the likes of George Soros and Warren Buffet. That’s a premise even they can’t devalue!
- The Squidder#3 (IDW): Templesmith’s art is terrific. It’s worth the price of admission. …
This was one stacked month of comics. Consider: our #1 book from last month (Silver Surfer), despite another strong outing, didn’t crack the Top 5 this time out. Also, only one of the titles below has been featured on our hallowed list before (having been, at different times, praised and damned – see below). This speaks to the veritable title waveof new, quality work being produced in this, the…
