It’s September already! Time for evening walks in the crisp fall air through fallen leaves, coming home and drinking warm Apple Cider and sitting down by the fire. Mmmmm, good times. Wait, it’s still supposed to be 90 degrees this week. Crap. Here’s this week’s new stuff.
WOLVERINE gets a new number one (but don’t worry, Jason Aaron is still writing it) and he’s apparently going to Hell because of it. Greg Rucka’s STUMPTOWN finally finishes, most likely in the most awesome way possible, HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD continue to be great, the FREEDOM FIGHTERS pick up the fight again with Palmiotti & Gray, the SECRET SIX take on all villains, THE INCREDIBLE HULKS become the best traveling family band since the Partridges and OUR ARMY AT WAR continues to fight for Mom, apple pie and babies.

Big thanks to everyone who came out to the Art show and Zombie Walk, braving the hot, thunderous and occasionally power interrupting weather. It was great to see all of our artist regulars like Zane Reichert, Joe Pruitt and Rusty Shackles, as well as newcomers from Twilight Star studios in Springfield. Thankfully, the weather managed to clear up just in time for the Zombie Walk to happen, and there were a great many crowds and zombies walking about and lots of money and food were collected for Home Inc. Then, to protect from threat of rain local metalheads Doctor Meat played their show in our warm, comicy embrace. Stay tuned for pics!
In the mean time, this weeks new comics include Harlan Ellison’s return to comics in PHOENIX WITHOUT ASHES. The SECRET AVENGERS continuing their adventure on Mars, IMAGE UNITED #3 actually ships (get ready to hold your breath for a loooooong time for #4), AVENGERS & THE INFINITY GAUNTLET retells the Infinity Gauntlet saga for an all-ages audience, the SIXTH GUN continues its inaugural arc and being one of the best new comics of the year, the NEW AVENGERS continue trying to set the world of the mystic right, STAR WARS LEGACY wraps up a 50-issue run with the promise of more Legacy-era books to come and the comic adaptation of TRUE BLOOD sates fans thirst for more Sookie and Bill.

I’m a sucker for dark stories. That’s what leads me to start reading stories from Ross Campbell. His work on Water Baby and Wet Moon are well told and very bizarre worlds filled with both real life issues that we all have and crazy crap that you couldn’t fathom happening to you. [...]
The Yellow Springs tradition returns on August 21st! As it happens every August, Book Vendors from all over will descend onto the Mills Lawn School Grounds from 9am to 5pm, delivering to you great deals on new, used and collectible books at great prices. If you’re looking to pick up some books to keep you [...]
This weekend is our 4th Live Art Show AND the 2nd Annual Zombie Walk, PLUS Scott Pilgrim premieres this Friday ALSO Madden 11 comes out today. It’s exhausting, especially in this heat, but that’s a rookie mistake. There’s still comics to buy, and some damn good ones this week. Top of the list is the new Image Comics ongoing from Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma, MORNING GLORIES. I’ve read a preview copy of this and it lives up big time to the “Runaways meets Lost” premise. LOCKE & KEY returns with its fourth miniseries KEYS TO THE KINGDOM, Guy Gardner takes center stage in GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD WARRIORS, the BPRD struggles with their biggest threat ever in HELL ON EARTH, the BIRDS OF PREY continue their battle with the Penguin and the White Canary, the World War Hulks (finally) begins its final orbit in INCREDIBLE HULK, we reach the penultimate chapter of HACK/SLASH: MY FIRST MANIAC and ULTIMATE AVENGERS continues to plow ahead as the Avengers fight vampires (I’m surprised there’s any vampires left for people to fight nowadays).
Click through to check out the rest of this week’s books, and we’ll see you this Saturday at the Art Show (and maybe shambling through town at the Zombie Walk)

As we get ready for our trio of August Awesomeness (Art Show, Zombie Walk and Yellow Springs Book Fair), here’s a look at this week’s comics that will try to keep us cool in the face of unrelenting heat and boredom (until 14th, that is…)
Bendis and Alan Davis continue Cap, Thor & Iron Man’s road trip through a ruined Asgard in AVENGERS: PRIME, Daredevil continues his reign of terror in SHADOWLAND, David Lapham’s CROSSED: FAMILY VALUES continues is descent into depravity and speaking of, Joe Quesada continues the “What really happened on Peter and Mary Jane’s wedding day” story in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Plus, we’ve got DC Universe glasses, Batman Reborn action figures, a Star Wars Play-Doh set and a pretty kick-ass Doctor Doom statue.

We have a lot of great stuff at Super-Fly from well established comic creators, but every once in awhile, a relatively new talent gains some well-deserved notoriety. One such hot comics writer/artist on the rise is Canadian Jeff Lemire. Lemire may be best known for the current Vertigo ongoing Sweet Tooth, which is a [...]
