Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. Just a few issues I want to talk about this week, but there’s a big stack of new TPBs and HCs, so without further ado let’s dive in…

New This Week:

Han Solo 1Star Wars: Han Solo #1 – The next mini-series from Star Wars begins, featuring everyone’s favorite Nerf-herding scoundrel!

Descender #12 – The next arc begins! The last arc left off with a big twist and things are starting to heat up elsewhere.

Injustice: Gods Among Us – Year Five #12 – In the past, each Injustice Year has ended after 12 issues and an Annual. I’m glad to see this will continuing for awhile.

The Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade #1 – For the first time, find out what happened in the years leading up to The Dark Knight Returns! Featuring several favorite characters, including the last Robin (before Carrie Kelly of course).

A few other issues to look forward to:

I Hate Fairyland #6, Jughead #7, Lazarus #22, Star Wars #20, Swamp Thing #6, The Twilight Zone: The Shadow #3, Vote Loki #1

Collected Editions and OGNs:

Dark Night A True Batman Story52 Book 1 – The original DC weekly series! I haven’t read this yet and only started reading comics a few years before the New 52 so I’ve always been interested in reading more older DC.

All Star Section 8 TPB

Dark Night: A True Batman Story HC – I am, however, and huge Paul Dini and Ed Risso fan, so this is going to be a real treat. This is a story about the night Dini was attacked almost to death but reimagined as a Batman tale.
