Weekly Comics to Come for 9/6/07

Buffy The Vampire Slayer #6 (Vaughan writing a story focused on Faith, one of my favorite characters in Buffy... looking forward to this)
DMZ Vol 3 Public Works TP (The best DMZ story so far... until the arc after it came up. Book keeps getting better and better)
Incredible Hulk #110 (One of the best Hulk stories I've read in the last ten years)
Lobster Johnson The Iron Prometheus #1 (The rare property where the spinoffs are actually just as good or better than the main book. Mignola keeps his hand on the reins, but brings in a terrific artist, Jason Armstrong, to handle the art on this pulp hero style book)
True Story Swear To God Image Ed #8 (Every issue is a delight)

30 Days Of Night Red Snow #1 (Ben Templesmith writes *and* draws this tale of WWII era bloodsuckers)
Annihilation Conquest Wraith #3 (Some nice moody space action after last issue's somewhat lackluster origin/torture issue)
Black Canary Wedding Planner (Sure to be a fun, if weird, offering)
Captain America Chosen #1 (I'm expecting hand-wringing post-9-11 boring Cap, but hoping for action from the writer of First Blood)
Infinity Inc #1 (Steel and his niece. I know, I'm yawning too... but it is written by Peter Milligan)
Iron Man Enter Mandarin #1 (Fun retro Iron Man story by Joe Casey, in the vein of his Earth's Mightiest Heroes, which is both good and bad. Terrific artwork by Eric Canete)
Lucha Libre #1 (Mexican wrestlers battle crime, art looks amazing... what's not to love?)
New Warriors #4 (Really good issue deepening the mystery of Who Is Night Thrasher?)
Punisher War Journal Vol 1 Civil War TP (Now I need to give this a re-read, since I'm digging Fraction's other Marvel work so much)
Sentences The Life Of M F Grimm HC (Preview art on this book about a rapper looked phenomenal)
Shanna She-Devil Survival Of The Fittest #2 (Kind of fun adventure comic, with 20% more cheesecake than most)
Sorrow #1 (This post-nuclear ghost story looks like fun, and has gorgeous covers)
Uncanny X-Men #490 (Brubaker's conspiracy/terrorist Morlock story has been pretty solid, better than his spacefaring storyline in my opinion)
Y The Last Man #58 (Only two more issues left after this one, and it's not keeping a monthly schedule, which is just mean)
