The Best of the Best - Previews for November 2009

The Three Guys from Nowhere show will be late this week (like Sunday late) so I figured I had time to put this together. Also, going to see Rob Zombie Presents Halloween 2 this weekend so that may get discussed on the show as well. Email us with feedback!!

Dark Horse One-Shot Wonders (page 23): a really neat idea by Dark Horse, giving single issue stories for exisiting characters (Star Wars and the Goon this month). Check out this cover:

Dark Horse wins two months in a row for best cover!

Great Ten #1 (page 82): a 10-issue maxi series of characters that debuted in 52 over three years ago and DC hasn't done anything of note with since. Maybe now's the time.

Batman: the Cat and the Bat TPB (page 90): this collects issues #17-21 of Batman Confidential with tons of great Kevin Maguire art. If you missed it the first time, don't miss it now!

Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love (page 116): a miniseries spinning out from the cool prior one off stories from the main Fables book about Cindy being the best spy ever. However, not being written by Bill Willingham has me a bit leary.

Image United (page 136): All the original Image creators (sans Jim Lee) return for the big crossover of all the original Image characters, written by Robert Kirkman. Unfortunately, I just don't care.

BOOM! Kids Line (page 218): Joining the exisiting Incredibles ongoing and the new Disney license (Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck books) this month sees the addition of Toy Story, Cars, Muppet Show and WALL-E ongoings. This is where the future is people!

Amazing Spider-Man #611 (page M18): Joe Kelly returns to the character everyone loves (NOW!), Deadpool! Teaming up with Spidey! To take on Lady Stilt-Man! If it wasn't for that Poop Potato cover this month, this would have been my favorite!

Amazing Spider-Man #612 & #613 (page M19): And then Mark Waid brings back all the classic Spidey villains, starting with Electro! The Spider-Man books have been awesome of late!

Black Widow: Deadly Origins #1 (page M25): the rollout for Iron Man 2 begin here! With Black Widow and Whiplash (also featured in another mini this month) as the lead villains in the next Iron Man movie, they also get some face time in real Marvel U. Luckily, with Paul Cornell as the writer of this one, chances are it'll be pretty good.

Realm of Kings (page M49-M51): as one door closes (War of Kings), another opens (Realm of Kings). I got no problem with the continuation of the Marvel cosmic stuff as these aren't the same type of "events" we get elsewhere (see the X-Universe).

Strange (page M53): Mark Waid (he's very busy at Marvel) tackles what Stephen Strange is up to now that he's not Sorcerer Supreme. The last Strange mini series was written by Brian K Vaughn and I'm sure Waid will deliver a really cool story.

Deadpool Team-Up #899 (page M62): A THIRD Deadpool ongoing? Mike Sterling over at Progressive Ruin stated this is like "cutting open the goose to get those golden egss faster".
I'm not sure if I entirely agree as I'm a tried and true Wade fan and as long as the stories are good, I'll keep buying them!

PunisherMAX #1 (page M75): I guess it's all together as one word, pronounced really fast. Jokes aside, I'm pumped for Jason Aaron taking this title on. u>Scalped is great and his Ghost Rider stuff has been really good too.

Deadpool Classics vol. 3 TPB (page M107): More DEADPOOL! Every month is Deadpool month! I already have these is single issues but the fact they are FINALLY getting put back into print means everyone should buy them!
