If it’s Comic List Highlights and it’s Pulp Fiction, then it’s time for your New 52 Update.  In the New 52 Update we, the comicly nerdy, employees of Pulp Fiction tell you, the hungry for information, customers which DC Relaunch books ship this week with a one word description of each.

*Batman & Robin – Nepotism  *Batwoman – Red  *Deathstroke – Eyepatch

*Demon Knights – British *Frankenstein, Agent of SHADE – FIRE!

*Green Lantern – Sinestro *Grifter – Nineties  *Legion Lost – Found

*Mister Terrific – Terrific?  *Red Lanterns – Rage  * Resurrection Man – Dead

*Superboy – Wires

DC isn’t the only kid in the schoolyard dropping the #1′s like they’re hot.  Marvel has their own relaunch occurring in the Ultimate Universe.  And if you haven’t heard, Spider-Man is dead, long live Spider-Man!  Yup, Peter Parker is dead, but Miles Morales is the brand new Spider-Man.

Where did he get spider powers?  How did he get the costume?  What’s his relation to Peter?  When did he decide to don the mantle?  Come for the mystery, stay for the teenager hijinks!  Plus there’s that sweet new black and red suit!

Can anything else restart this week?  Apparently, yes, because Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 begins next week, too.

“Wait” you say, “Buffy ended at season 7!  What is this season 9 you speak of?”.  Though Buffy did end, on television, after her seventh season, her story has been continuing for the last couple of years in comic form.  Basically picking up where the TV series left off, Buffy has been leading a literal army of slayers against a conglomeration of the show’s worst villains in battles across the world.  After the cataclysmic ending of season 8, Buffy is getting back to the basics in San Francisco in this new edition to the fan favorite story written by the series creator himself, Joss Whedon.

Solomon Grundy born on a Monday.  Died on a dark and dreary Tuesday.  Made into a statue on a nerdy and normal Wednesday.

Next in line for the DCU Online Statue treatment is indeed the grey Goliath of Gotham, Solomon Grundy.  These limited run statues have been sculpted off of Jim Lee’s adept pencils and have all been some of the slickest statues on the market since their inception.  Gaze upon him.
