This Week's Releases: August 23, 2006

Some great books hitting this week, though since I have an callback Thursday I'll be holding off on my purchases until then. I hate not hitting 2005 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award Winning Night Flight Comics on New Comics Day, but the 100-mile round trip demands that I combine trips whenever possible. So "52 on 52" may run a bit late.

Justice League Of America reboots again, with some Brad Meltzer prose added in for top cross-promotional possibilities. "Better Late Than never" is my mantra for the Heinberg Wonder Woman. Matt Wagner begins his second run on the true All-Star Batman title. More Morrison Batman, with the promise of ninja man-bats. More Whedon/Cassaday Astonishing X-Men, and it's a title that seems to be gaining quality as it sheds buzz.

But the highlight of the week is "The People's Choice" edition of Action Philosophers!
