Weekly Comics to Come - January 23, 2008

TOP FIVE
Annihilation Conquest Book 1 HC (Glad to be getting the new Annihilation in hardcover)
Johnny Hiro #3 (The first two issues were fairly different but good, looking forward to seeing what's coming in #3)
Order #7 (A great issue, as Fraction writes Namor very well)
World War Hulk Aftersmash Damage Control #1 (Great to see Dwayne McDuffie back on these characters, and the art on the book is terrific too)
X-men First Class Vol 2 #8 (Beautiful interior art by Eric Nguyen, and as usual, a great story by Jeff Parker)

THE REST
Afterburn #1 (New post-apocalyptic adventure book from Red 5)
Hack Slash Series #8 (Back to reading this in single issues, and I'm really enjoying it)
Marvel Adventures Iron Man #9 (Iron Man vs. an army of gray original Iron Man armors by Van Lente... give this guy the regular Iron Man book, already!)
Marvel Zombies 2 #4 (Still surprisingly fun and as always, great art from Sean Phillips)
Therefore Repent TP (Interesting, gorgeously illustrated graphic novel about a post-Rapture New York)
Usagi Yojimbo #109 (Heading into 2008 with a pretty impressive series of 2007 stories under its belt)

No mention of Angel? I'm not particularly caring for the book but you seemed to be enthused about the last two issues.

Still digging it, for the most part, but Angel was in with last week's books.

Great reveal at the end of ish #3, I thought.

Argh. You're right of course. I've been picking my books up a week late. Good reveal, yes. I still think Buffy is head and shoulders over Angel.
