Than you won’t want to miss the start of a new Figment series, also out today. Big time Miracleman fan? Than I know you must be excited for the new series launching today with Gaiman and Buckingham at the helm. Oh, what’s that? You’re a fan of Marvel Comics? Don’t worry, they didn’t forget you either! There’s lots of quality Secret Wars tie-ins out today (Age of Apocalypse, Thors, House of M and Squadron Sinister in particular), a few regular monthlies to enjoy like Daredevil and Groot, and even Deadpool vs Thanos if you’re into really, really one-sided fights. Whatever you like, Marvel probably has you covered today!

Perfect Pulls: So much Bat-love today! Between a new issue of the always-beautiful Detective Comics, a new issue of the revamped Batman Beyond with Tim Drake behind the mask, another offering of the video-game tie-in Batman Arkham Knight, and the latest issue of Bat-Mite, there’s something for pretty much any kind of Bat-fan. Two of my other current favorite DC titles are also represented today as well, with a new issue of the outstanding current run of Green Lantern, as well as a new issue of the impressive Midnighter solo title. Definitely an epic DC day!

8House #3
Casanova Acedia #4
Dark Corridor #2
Dying And The Dead #3

Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents Beyond Belief #2 (Of 4)
We Stand On Guard #3

Perfect Pulls: Image’s list may be a bit shorter than normal today, but don’t doubt for a moment that it’s not a loaded list. Some of my Image favorites all have new books today, including the “why is this so good” Jupiter’s Circle and the “holy crap was that brutal” We Stand On Guard, which is very much a book you should be all over if you haven’t jumped on it yet. There’s even a brand new offering from Jeff Lemire and newcomer Emi Lenox called Plutona, based on what happens to five young friends who come across the dead body of the world’s greatest superhero. The solicits promise a “dark and heartbreaking journey,” so if you’re grabbing this book, prepare for feels!

Perfect Pulls: It’s becoming very clear that the trend right now is taking two characters or franchises you wouldn’t expect to see together and smashing them together, and so far, this is a trend I can get behind! While strange crossovers have always been a part of comics, lately they feel like creative outlets instead of feeling like cash grabs, and it’s made for some great reading, whether it’s the popcorn-worthy Star Trek/Green Lantern or the over-the-top Archie vs. Predator. This week has another of these crazy crossovers, in the form of Dyanamite’s Aliens Vampirella #1 bringing together everyone’s favorite xenomorphs with everyone’s favorite scantily-clad vampire badass. If crazy crossovers aren’t your thing, there’s still plenty of indie goodness for you, with new issues of Imperium and X-O Manowar from Valiant, a new issue of Woods from BOOM!, and a new issue of Transformers from IDW.

Those are the highlights for Wednesday, September 2nd. Anything you simply can’t live without, or simply can’t imagine reading? Share it in the comments!
