NEIL YOUNG’S GREENDALE HC by Joshua Dysart and Cliff Chiang. A comic adaptation of an album by a rock legend. Politics, mystery and adventure come together in a book that should go over well, except with southern men who don’t need Neil Young around anyhow.
NEMESIS #2 of 4 by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven. The worst super-villain ever sets his sights on the White House. That’s right: Nemesis is a teabagger! Gotta look!
PREDATORS #1 of 4 by Marc Andreyko, David Lapham, Guilherme Balbi and Gabriel Guzman. Yes, that is Lawrence Fishburne and Adrian Brody you see staring at you on the cover as the world’s oldest, skinniest Navy SEALS. “Official movie adaptation” is what they call that in Da Biz.
PUNISHERMAX #8 by Jason Aaron and Steve Dillon. In the past all cops, even dirty ones, have gotten a pass from the Punisher. But things are changing… Recommended, not for kids.
RAWHIDE KID #1 of 4 by Ron Zimerman and Howard Chaykin. Seven years after RAWHIDE KID: SLAP LEATHER, his previous outing with/of the character, Zimmerman has returned to use all the campy, gay sub-text innuendo he could think up during that time. Plus gun-fights.
