Batman Eternal #1
by Scott Snyder / Jason Fabok
I know, the world needs another Batman series like it needs more Russian aggression. But this new weekly series is helmed by Scott Snyder who's been writing some of the best Batman comics in decades.
Future Shock #7
by Josh Burggraf
If you're in the mood for cool, arty, cutting-edge sci-fi comics, you really need to check out this anthology series edited by Josh Burggraf.

Yes, a lot of Crumb's stuff has been collected into book form, but there's just something so much more satisfying reading his stuff in traditional comic book format. Here Crumb Comics has started reprinting his old Hup series.
