Greetings and salutations, comic readers. It’s time for another Big B weekend update that you all know and love.

From the guys at Marvel, the big books that dropped were: Deadpool, Deadpool Merc with a Mouth, Dark Wolverine, Black Cat, Incredible Hulk,  Ultimate  X and Atlas were some of the great better reads by Marvel this week. But the most anticipated Marvel book of the week was the relaunch of the New Avengers making it the new New Avengers! Picking up where the last volume ended with Bendis writing and Immonen on art duties, this nwe numbering is meant to usher in a new era for the heroic age of the Avengers with a mixup in the team-line up.

DC didn’t have a huge line-up, but still had some big headliners with Brightest Day and Birds of Prey leading the charge.  Hey, those titles rhymed! But even though there weren’t a lot of DC line books out, its Vertigo and Wildstorm books; DMZ and DV8 both of which are Brian Wood books and ever so excellent!

But like the title of this week’s post says, trade readers got the long long end of the stick this week. What was so great in trades? Well, let’s see…we got: Chew TP Vol 2, Punisher Max Vol 1 HC, Deadpool Vol 4 HC, Batman Rip TP, Criminal Tp Vol 4,  Star Wars KOTR VOl 9, Hulk Vol 4, Goon fancy Pants Edition Vol 3, and The Book of Mr Natural by Robert Crumb. All that stuff? Pure gold I tells ya! So you should be super excited about those trades.
