The Week in Comics -- Here's a look at some notable titles arriving in stores this Wednesday. While it's not a banner week like last week, there's still some good, solid comics being released.



DEMO #3 (Of 12) $2.95 -- I've enjoyed the two standalone stories told in the previous issues, and Becky Cloonan's art is a genuine revelation. Whether this will continue to build into a symphony of interesting and appealing comics over the course of its 12 issues or creatively crash and burn like the similarly-formatted Global Frequency remains to be seen. One thing is certain, and that is that Cloonan is going places.


WILDCATS VERSION 3.0 #18 $2.95 -- Recently caught up on Volume Two of this title, which was mostly drawn by the exquisite-even-then Sean Phillips and written by 3.0's Joe Casey. Wildcats is proof-positive that Casey can write compelling and entertaining comics over the long haul with very few stumbles. If only much of the rest of his work had this sort of hold over me.


WALKING DEAD #4 $2.95 -- Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore's zombiefied apocalypse story's down-to-earth focus ont he humanity of its characters made it one of the most impressive titles to debut last year. A trade is in the works, so if you think it might be up your alley, you should give the monthly or the collection a look. Good stuff.

WANTED #2 (Of 6) $2.99 -- It's Watchmen for bad guys! It's Three's Company with head wounds! It's -- it's -- it's one of the best efforts Mark Millar's put forth, with great action artwork by JG Jones. If you like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing you'll like.
