If your question is “What kind of badass comic awesomeness will Dennis Hopeless unleash on the world next?”, the answer is The Answer.  In the works for a number of years, Dark Horse Comics is finally releasing Dennis’ next miniseries which, as a series released independent of the big two comic companies, means anything goes.  The Answer, himself, is the hero of a standard metropolitan city who crosses paths with a punky librarian chick.  Together the two begin to uncover a conspiracy that sends them running for their lives.  As usual, because it’s Dennis, they do so while spouting some of the quickest, wittiest dialog on the block.  Oh, and if you’re a fan of the horror series Revival or the great web comic Battlepug, you’ll be glad to know The Answer was created in conjunction with Mike Norton.  Any more questions?

It’s a young hero’s world out there.

One of my most anticipated Marvel NOW! series launches this next Wednesday and it is Young Avengers.  Written by the too-cool-for-school Kieron Gillen (Journey in MysteryPhonogram) and drawn by X-Men: Season One‘s Jamie McKelvie, this version of Young Avengers is all about partying, music, partying, dancing, drinking, and partying.  Oh, but with superpowers.  The child version of Loki last seen in Gillen’s Journey into Mystery run has set out to improve his image and become a “good guy”, finding the best way to do this is to assemble a team of young heroes.  We’ll see how that goes.  If you loved the two official Young Avengers series of recent years, then you be happy to see many of those character popping back up in a book that continues to grow them as characters, mostly by seeing them through their stupid, irrational teenage years.  Oh, and did I mention the partying.

Countdown to Darkness may be a goofy title that elicits images of someone standing by a light switch yelling that they’ll turn it off in any moment, but the fact that Star Trek precedes it makes it noteworthy.  This new four issue miniseries from IDW is the prequel to this summer’s sequel to J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot, filling in the gaps between the last movie and the new one.  Written and overseen by Robert Orci, one of the screenwriters of the film, what happens here is the official continuity of the film universe.  For instance, you’ll see Klingons here before they appear in the film.  And if you read the previous Countdown miniseries for the last film, you’ll know that this one will enrich the story rather than  simply paddle in one place only to make money and not mess with the film.

Finally, tonight’s last shoutout is going to be a simple one, because it can be.

Deadpool

That’s Deadpool vs. Moby Dick, Deadpool vs. Tom Sawyer, Deadpool vs. Ebeneezer Scrooge, and so on.
