Listening for the Letterbox, May 14th, 2008

A regular feature where I look ahead to what I have on order from the releases of the week. This is obviously not a definitive release schedule - for that, try Diamond for the list of next weeks releases and this weeks releases (updated every monday).

As usual, I will put the titles in reverse order of anticipation (ie the bottom of the pile being the most anticipated;

Secret Invasion Fantastic Four #1 / Captain Britan & MI13 #1 (both Marvel)

More Secret Invasion tie-ins (surprise, surprise). Looking forward to Captain Britain in a new title!

Transhuman #2 (Image)

A documentary in a comic!

Young Liars #3 (Vertigo)

More teen spirit and angst, with added murder and violence (and guitars) courtesy of David Lapham. Loved the first 2 issues, see no reason why #3 will not be as good.

Batman #676 (DC)

The beginning of the end for Bruce Wayne? The start of 'Batman RIP'.
Who will live, who will die, who will be Batman?

The Walking Dead #49 (Image)

After the incredible, blood-soaked and emotionally draining finale to the 'No-one is safe' arc, we are plunged into the living nightmare that Rick & Carl Grimes are going through. No idea how this is going to pan out, but I do not doubt it will be anything less than 22 pages of brilliance.
