Comics? Okay, comics.

A Mr. Hyde coat and shovel are the in accessories right now

It's April now, so you know what that means: absolutely nothing. Celebrate your continuing dearth of activity by exchanging green paper for the following stacks of folded multicolored paper:

Batman and Robin #11

"The Return of Bruce Wayne Begins Here?!" How? He died! Cool I guess, but this had better not start a trend in comic books of fallen characters coming back to life.

Codebreakers #1

Codebreakers: your "no ridiculously-coiffed protagonist" puzzle-solving adventure alternative to your Da Vinci Codes and National Treasures.

Marvel Zombies 5 #1 (of 5)

Ugh.

Spider-Man: Fever #1 (of 3)

Ditko enthusiasts, rejoice. Writer/artist Brendan McCarthy begins his psychedelic triptych homage to the venerable comic book creator right here. Spider-Man gets spidernapped by a tribe of spider-demons and his buddy Dr. Strange has to save him. So basically this is as much a Spider-Man comic as Mario is Missing is a Mario game.

S.H.I.E.L.D. # 1

Oh, sure. Leonardo Da Vinci may be set to battle biblical demons in the motion picture world, but did you know he was also an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., and as such fought outer spacey foes like Galactus and the Brood long before Nick Fury was even a glimmer in his father's one good eye? Fact.

Turf #1

This Image funnybook from Jonathan Ross and the amazing Tommy Lee Edwards answers the age-old question of what would happen if vampires got involved in the mob wars of prohibition-era New York City. A free requisite period-accurate, strong-willed female reporter is included inside.
