Listening for the Letterbox, July 2nd, 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).

It's Walking Dead week!!!!!!!

Walking Dead #50 (Image)

A one-off special story that will apparently warm our hearts while chilling us to the bone - there is a 5 page preview here. It feels like another looong wait since #49, but that is part and parcel of following the comics as opposed to the trades for Kirkmans' apocalyptic drama. Waiting for the trades must be even worse (#8, 'Made to Suffer' is finally out now). There will be a review of this as soon as it gets read.

Batman #678 (DC)

Batman RIP continues, as the pieces of the puzzle begin to fit together. Shaping up nicely, and the tie-in issues (Nightwing, Robin etc) kick in soon...

The Boys #20 (Dynamite)

More revelations about the Boys and the Seven as 'I Tell You No Lie GI' continues. This title gets better and better, in both the story and the art.
