The Comic Lounge's Picks of the Week (10/9)

This week is LA Comic Con, so while most of us here at the Comic Lounge are getting ready for this weekend. We won't be as active on the site. But here are some of our picks to keep you busy for your weekend reads.



This is a book of epic proportions. Ellis and Hitch are reteaming to do a 12 issue maxi-series of Batman. This is sure to be one of the most talked about books this year, so don't miss out now.

Here's the solicit:

The World's Greatest Detective must try to inhabit the mind of a murder victim to solve a case-without filling the empty grave next to those of his parents. Can Batman imagine the life of a corpse with a half-eaten face without dying himself? Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch, one of the most legendary creative partnerships of the modern age, reunite in this maxiseries about life, death and the questions most are too afraid to ask.


This is the issue we've all been waiting for. If you've been paying attention to the reading order of HOX and POX then you saw that 3 issue were highlighted in red. So far the other "red" issues were bomb dropping. So expect this issue to follow suit as we gear up for next weeks X-Men #1.

Here's the solicit:

The revelatory tale of Mutantkind's fall comes to a conclusion that will lay the groundwork of the X-Men's stories for years to come! Superstar writer Jonathan Hickman (NEW AVENGERS, FF, INFINITY) and rising star artist RB Silva (UNCANNY X-MEN) wrap the series that reveals everything!


This charming little slice of life book continues to make me love it even more with each passing issue. Sina on words and Siobhan on art are a match made in heaven on this book.

Here's the solicit:

A standard fight between roommates gets complicated when it involves the undead. With all the ghosts in the Manor choosing sides, will Daphne ever be truly at home here?
