What's new on the comic stands? First off, author Jeff Lemire brings a new approach to the supernatural DC Comics character Kid Eternity in National Comics. ("Can introverted medical examiner Kid Eternity solve a deadly crime in just 24 hours?")
Other debuts include the new dimension-hopping mutant series X-Treme X-Men ("Travel the multiverse with Captain Howlett, Kid Nightcrawler, and Emmeline Frost"), the Sith-happy miniseries Star Wars: Darth Maul - Death Sentence, and Axe Cop: President Of The World. ("Axe Cop has been appointed president of the whole world.")
There are new issues of Spaceman, The Goon, The Flash, Uncanny X-Force, Avengers, Wolverine and the X-Men, BPRD: Hell On Earth - Exorcism, American Vampire, and Before Watchmen: Comedian.
For graphic novels, KISS: Greatest Hits reprints those wacky 1970s Marvel KISS comics, and the first volume of Mark Waid's run on Daredevil is out in paperback. Finally, Lemire also pens and illustrates a cryptic-sounding book, The Underwater Welder:
As Jack dives deeper and deeper, he seems to pull further and further away from his young wife, and their unborn son. But then, something happens deep on the ocean floor: Jack has a strange and mind-bending encounter that will change the course of his life forever.
