Hey Fandom! I'm back from San Diego Comic-Con and ready to talk New Comics Now on A Comic Show! Okay, first I talk some about the con, then it's Kirkman's Outcast #2. Also Skybound and Joshua Williamson has a new book called Birthright out in October that's his best work yet. It's what happens to the boy with the Neverending Story ends or when he returns home from Narnia. I really enjoyed the full preview copy I read, and you guys should just add it to your pull lists now. Rememder's Low #1 is an optimistic look at his brand of dystopian sci-fi, and three out of the four main characters are female. Go Rick, Go! Show all the haters what you got! Letter 44 by Charles Soule is out in collection with a beautifully designed cover.

Vertigo has another issue of Sandman: Overture, it's worth the wait, and I love Cat Sandman! The new Si Spurrier book, Bodies, is a twisted Vertigo crime book featuring four murders in four different time periods, with four different detectives. However the bodies are found in the same location with the same M.O., and it's the same victim!

As far as mainstream hero fare goes this week, I love Justice League and GotG. JL featured the new Doom Patrol and my favorite Lex/Shazam odd couple. Guardians was a nice close to the current arc, but I simply can't wait until next issue! Rich Rider. Cancerverse. Thanos!
