Go buy yourself a comic

You're going to want to get in on the ground floor with this one.

Oh man, comics! Here are a few of the fantastic titles debuting at a comic book store near you tomorrow. Can you think of a better way to while away your time on Pi Day this weekend, nerds? (Trick question. There is no better way!)

The A-Team: Shotgun Wedding #1

You're kidding. The artist didn't draw a single shotgun on the cover? Wasted opportunity. Still, way to make 75% of the A-Team look like a Metal Gear Solid codec transmission.

Breaking into Comics the Marvel Way! #1 (of 2)

In case you're skeptical about the value of this publication in aiding your budding career in comic books, don't worry: the exclamation point unwaveringly proves its validity.

Ghost Projekt #1 (of 5)

Jeez. Learn to use spell check.

Lockjaw and The Pet Avengers Unleashed #1 (of 4)

Your screams for synergy between comic books and those cute animal YouTube videos you love have finally been heard. Your screams for help will not be so fortunate.

Weekly World News #3

I'm tickled that this fine, shining beacon of journalistic integrity has finally been adapted to comic book form, but I would've much preferred a Globe or Enquirer adaptation. That is to say I'd prefer 22 pages of judging female comic characters' wardrobes and assessments of the relative normalcy of superhuman behavior: "Spider-Man is going to the bank! Normal! R'as al Ghul is reincarnated in a Lazarus Pit! Not normal!"

WWE Heroes #1

The triumphant first issue of this new series features three professional wrestlers on the cover, and one of them is about to body-slam a zombie amidst a sea of cougars, armored knights and other zombies. Because you don't want to dilute the rich dramatic possibilities of a wrestling comic book with unnecessary genre piling.
