A few weeks of year end/year beginning lists have led to some fun conversation (thanks to all involved last week) but a serious lapse in access to my advice on what loyal comic fans should be reading has surely lead many of you to stare bleakly at stocked shelves, not knowing what hidden gems should be brought home. OK, maybe not, but there is some serious awesome coming out Thursday (damn Monday holidays) including a return of Captain America, a book written by the coolest special education rock group ever, The Kids of Widney High and Grant Morrison’s latest Vertigo effort, Joe the Barbarian. All these and more in this week’s installment of:

 

Ben’s Ten

10) Green Lantern Corps Vol 2 #44
I got all caught up on Blackest Night and I can now put myself firmly in the “I don’t hate it” camp.

9) Dark Avengers #13
Got to get my Normie is in charge fix while it lasts.

8) Nova Vol 4 #33
I think this has been on the list every month.

7) Incorruptible #2
The first issue was, um, interesting, but did set us up for a solid book.

6) Rasl #6
Jeff Smith, of Bone fame, continues his latest opus.

5) Dark Wolverine #82
My favorite thing to come out of Dark Reign. Daken rocks.

4) Mighty Avengers #33
I dig the all new, all awesome Hank Pym.

3) Captain America Vol 5 #602
Finally, FINALLY back to regular numbering. Let’s go Ed!

2) Kids Of Widney High One Shot
Written by the Kids themselves. If you don’t know who they are use that google toolbar.

Cover art to JOE THE BARBARIAN #1 by Sean Murphy

1) Joe The Barbarian #1
I’m taking a leap of faith on Grant Morrison’s new book about a kid who could be off to save a fantastic realm or might just be suffering from insulin-deprived delirium… yep, it’s Grant Morrison.
