Well, it appears that there will be a limited shipping schedule next week for comics. Which means most of us won’t be getting our fix for the week next week. I’m already planning a trip to pick up some trades on my to-read list to make up for the loss. However, for this week we’ve got some big issues to grab. Image United continues the ground-breaking series with the second issue by all the Image creators. Fall of the Hulks and the return of Captain America headline for Marvel. The origin story of Batwoman wraps over in Detective Comics #860. Finally, Rick Remender, the man behind recent issues of the Punisher, gives us a new title called The Last Days of American Crime, a what-if tale about the future of Big Brother in America. Can’t wait for Wednesday even though I will be in Seattle. Anyone know a good shop in Space Needle town?

Last Days of American Crime #1
From Rick Remender, the critically acclaimed writer of Punisher. In the not-too-distant future, as a final response to terrorism and crime, the U.S. government plans in secret to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts. To keep this from the public, the government creates a distraction, installing a new currency system using digital charge cards. Enter Graham Brick, a career criminal never quite able to hit the big score. In a grand scheme, Graham intends to steal one of the charging stations, skip the country and live off unlimited funds for the rest of his life. But the media has leaked news of the anti-crime signal one week before it was to go live… and now Graham and his team have just a few days to turn the crime of the century into the last crime in American history.
