Henny's & Jonas' Pick:
Blackest Night: Superman #1 Starts @ 00:45
In a Warrior first, a double whammy pick of the week is Blackest Night: Superman. Both Jonas and Henny pick up on how evil infests itself in the idyllic farm country of Superman's hometown of Smallville. Just as Conner Kent/Superboy has started building his new life there as part of the Kent family, a horror unlike any he's faced before attacks in the form of Kal-L: The dead Superman of Earth 2! Also after committing the most atrocious crime of all: vandalism of the Smallville welcome sign. Destruction of public property isn't a joke people.

Ex Machina #44 Starts @ 06:40
The pieces of the puzzle are all starting to come together for Mayor Hundred and the whole Ex Machina Series. Vaughn has stated that this series is only going to be 50 issues and as it winds down the series is really starting to get more and more amazing. Issue #44 wraps up Vaughn's penultimate story arc, with Hundred descending to New York's sewers in hopes of confronting what he assumes is a revived Pherson. The truth is far more complicated and unexpected. Pick it up if only to check out JD Mettler's amazing coloring work.

Unwritten #4 Starts @ 13:35
While we amongst the warriors disagree about the quality of Peter Gross's art in the series, we all pretty much agree the story is very cool. The plot, for those who haven’t seen it about, stars Tommy Taylor. Tommy is a real guy in his 20's, but when he was a child, his father based a series of fantasy novels very much reminiscent of Harry Potter on him – the Tommy Taylor books. The books quickly eclipsed Potter, Twilight, and a great many other fandoms to become a 13 book juggernaut… but after book 13, writer Wilson Taylor mysteriously disappeared. Chaos ensues. Stabbings, Kidnappings, Sickles in the back. it's getting good, seriously...

Am I the only one who thinks the Luna brother's hillbillies look like the teacher from Beavis and Butthead? C'mon. Pitch in your two cents.
