SWAGAPALOOZA! Comics Of The Week

Maybe it's just me but it seems to be slim pickings at the comic stores this week, but here's a couple to get your hands on!

Superman: Earth One HC

Written ByJ. Michael Straczynski
Art By Shane Davis & Sandra Hope
Forget everything you know about The Man of Steel and brace yourself for a staggering new take on the world's most popular super-hero. Best-selling, Hugo Award-winning writer J. Michael Straczynski red-hot rising star artist Shane Davis team up for this exciting launch of the Earth One graphic novel series. Set in an all-new continuity re-imagining DC's top heroes, Earth One is a wave of original, standalone graphic novels produced by the top writers and artists in the industry. The groundbreaking new line rockets into effect right here with the super-hero who started it all — Superman! What would happen if the origin of the Man of Tomorrow were introduced today for the very first time? 

Terminator 1984 #2

Written By Zach Whedon
Art By Andy MacDonald

Kyle Reese nears the completion of his mission in the past when he locates Sarah Connor in 1984 Los Angeles. However, protecting her from the Terminator sent to kill her proves more difficult than he realized. In 2029 Kyle had backup, advanced weaponry, and obvious targets--now he's on his own against killer machines that look just like people. Fortunately, Ben is making progress in his own mission-protecting Kyle--as he finally catches up with his friend.

Billy the Kid’s Old Timey Oddities and the Ghastly Fiend of London #2

Written & Art By Eric Powell

Billy the Kid managed to make it nearly a full day in London without passing out drunk and being carted off to jail, which unfortunately wasn't long enough to find Jack the Ripper, who is still on the loose. The remaining members of Fineas Sproule's traveling spectacle of biological curiosities are on the case, but with "freaks" suspected of being behind the Ripper murders, none of them are safe. It's up to a very hung--over Billy and conjoined twins Malcolm and Miles to break out of jail and find the real killer.
