Pressed for time, so here's a shorter look at what's good on the comic shelves today:
Librarian comic book fans get a one-two punch of Showcase Presents Batgirl vol. 1—500+ pages of the original kick-ass comics librarian—and the first collected edition of Rex Libris—the latest kick-ass comics librarian—with more library-funny per page than any other publication ever.
Frank Miller & Dave Gibbons provide the long-awaited end to the Martha Washington saga with the Martha Washington Dies one-shot.
Samurai Commando Mission 1549 from DC/CMX looks interesting and I think it's only two volumes long. Bu tthen again it's seinen and nobody reads that, right?
Nexus returns after a long absence with issue #99.
The second NextWave hardcover comes out, just in case you're one of those who weren't buying it in floppy.
