Weekly Comics to Come - June 4, 2008

Fables Vol 10 The Good Prince TP (A long wait, but worth it, as this might be my favorite Fables story to date)
Manhunter #31 (Very glad to see this book return, even if I'm not entirely sold on their choice of artist and think they should have relaunched with a new number one)
Nova #14 (Very good issue of Nova vs. Silver Surfer, weakened only because it wasn't as good as the previous issue, which was one of the best issues of the run)
Proof Vol 1 Goatsucker TP (Bigfoot... FBI. Well, there's more to it than that. At any rate, one of the most imaginative new books out there from Image, and a $10 trade to try it out. Nice.)
Robin Spoiler Special #1 (I'm about ready to campaign to put Chuck Dixon in the top spot at DC Comics, based on his work on Robin and Batman and the Outsiders)

Abe Sapien The Drowning #5 (I've lost interest as the story goes on, but I love the art and I'm hoping for a strong finish)
Batman Death Mask #3 (Much more interested in this manga Batman than I expected to be)
Buffy The Vampire Slayer #15 (Please let it be a fakeout death... can't wait to see what happens next.)
Contract #0 (Promising new sci-fi action series from a new publisher)
Criminal 2 #3 (I've been digging the second volume of Criminal, I like the one-off stories that combine to form a larger tapestry)
Haunt Of Horror Lovecraft #1 (Richard Corben does Lovecraft, in black and white.)
House Of Mystery #2 (I was only mildly intrigued by the first issue, but I love this creative team, so I'll give it a few issues to hook me)
Invincible Iron Man #2 (Same as House of Mystery, really)
Nightwing #145 (Tomasi's got a good groove going on Nightwing right now... it's a little less consistent than Dixon's Robin, but comparable)
Noble Causes #34 (Coming to the end of the advance issues of this I've read, and now I can start waiting with everybody else to see what happens next)
Salem #1 (Condemned by Fire has put me in a Puritan witch-hunting mood... but this can't be as awesome as Warhammer witch-hunting, because it can't be as over-the-top)
Scream Queen #1 (Premise doesn't interest me, really, but Boom! Studios usually does)
Secret Invasion #3 (Yep, I'm still reading it, coming on three issues, a record for post-Alias Bendis)
Wormwood Calamari Rising TP (Quick collection of another twisted Wormwood tale)
