Hmm, we’re about to talk about comics so it must be Wednesday!  Welcome to the RazorFine Comic Rack boys and girls.  Pull up a bean bag and take a seat at feet of the master as we look at the new comics set to hit comic shops and bookstores today from DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, WildStorm, Vertigo, IDW Publishing, Dynamite Entertainment, Devil’s Due Publishing, Virgin, and Image Comics.

This week includes Catwoman, Dynamo 5, Ghost Whisperer, The Man With No Name, The New Dynamix, Northlanders, Star Wars: Rebellion, Superman/Batman, Thor, and the first issues of Draonglance: Legends, newuniversal: 1959, Reign in Hell, True Believers, and Wildcats.  Being the fifth Wednesday of the month, it’s a little skimpy on graphic novels but today’s releases do include Batman: Going Sane, Captain Marvel: Secret Invasion, Essential Fantastic Four Vol. 7, Thor by Michael J. Straczynski Vol. 1, and much, much more.
