Angie's Pick of the Month

Chew Vol. 2

Tony Chu, the cibopathic federal agent with the ability to get psychic impressions from the things he eats, is on a bizarre new case. A newly discovered fruit takes Agent Chu to a remote island full of secrets, strangeness-and a shadowy killer with a particularly sinister appetite.

 I cannot stress enough how awesome this book is. If you're looking for something outside the super hero genre, read Chew; if you want a good detective cop book, read Chew; if you like strange supernatural powers that you think would be terrible but are actually kind of really handy when put to use, read Chew. Basically I'm telling you to read Chew, I give really good advice.

Blackest Night Heroclix Starter Set

The "War of the Light" comes to HeroClix with the DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Set! As the Blackest Night encompasses the world, heroes and villains alike are deputized into the Lantern Corps to fight back against the legions of Black Lanterns. Choose a team of lanterns and take them into battle! This starter game includes everything a player needs to play HeroClix, including: seven 3D HeroClix miniatures - Green Lantern, Lex Luthor, Mera, Scarecrow, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and The Atom in their deputy Lantern costumes - each with a character card; all-new Green Lantern Sciencells Map; complete 2010 HeroClix rulebook; six Object tokens; twelve Terrain markers; and two 6-sided dice.

Who doesn't want red-lantern Mera vomiting blood everywhere? Favorite one EVER!

Picks of the Week

Chew #11
A few months ago an intact mastodon was discovered encased in a glacier in Siberia. A few weeks ago the lab doing DNA sequencing on the prehistoric creature mysteriously burned to the ground. And a few days ago, Special Agent Tony Chu discovered an exclusive diner's club of the very, very rich who commit crimes in order to procure the meat of the rare, exotic and extinct. Tonight is their annual dinner. Guess who's coming to dinner to stop them?

Well its the start of a new storyline folks! Can Chu stop the evil riches from eating prehistoric and extinct animals AND get the girl? We shall see...

Unwritten #14

 The unveiling of the new Tommy Taylor novel is only a day away. London is locked down tight, and Tom's enemies are starting to circle - but it's his friends he should be watching...

The truth behind Lizzie Hexam and Jane Waxman is revealed! Where is Lizzie truly from and how much should Tommy really trust her?

Secret Six #22
It's the bloody (and we mean bloody) conclusion to the "Cat in the Cradle" arc! Catman rages against those that have been trying to destroy his life. Will tensions within the Six force them to leave Catman to fend for himself? And is someone leaving the team? Let's hope not! 

Is anyone else wondering why Cheshire's kids keep dying? Its like she's under some sort of gypsy curse. Would not want to be her kid...
