Way up high, Sam, where it’s always balmy. Where no one snaps his fingers and says, “Hey, Shrimp, rack the balls!” Or, “Hey, mouse, mouse, go out and buy me a pack of butts.” I don’t want tips from the kitty. I’m in the big game with the big players. My experience I can give you in a nutshell, and I didn’t dream it in a light week, either – dog eat dog. In brief, from now on, the best of everything is good enough for me.

Day Men #1
By Matt Gagnon, Michael Alan Nelson, & Brian Stelfreeze
Brian Stelfreeze is a hell of a comic book artist, and he hasn’t been doing a series since 2005. But now he’s back, and it’s about vampires. I know. They’re all about vampires. Well actually this is about the folks who work with the vampires to help them out during regular business hours. Renfields!

The Rocketeer: Hollywood Horror HC
By Roger Langridge, & J. Bone
IDW has really been on a roll with these new Rocketeer stories and the latest, set squarely in the golden age of Hollywood and featuring some familiar faces, is no different. Langridge and Bone’s tale is rollicking and fun and pits our hero against an evil cult looking to assert control over the rich and famous of La-La Land. It’s a good thing nothing like that would ever happen in real life.

Batman ’66 #1
By Jeff Parker & Jonathan Case
The first three installments of the digital first serial make their way to print, even swifter than we could have hoped. While ComiXology’s guided view remains the best way to experience this DC2 effort — replete with perfectly timed word balloons and sound effects blinking into view, color changes and batarang motions — Parker and Case’s caper transitions nicely to print. You’re looking at 40 jam-packed pages of Gorshin’s Riddler and Newmar’s Catwoman, a delightful and loving send-up of the Adam West era. It’s fun, funny and fancy free.
