The shipping news

At Previews Review, Christopher Butcher highlights some of the books hitting shelves tomorrow, including Bipolar, Black Hole #12 and the DC: The New Frontier Vol. 1 trade paperback. Christopher also echoes some of my puzzlement about fan response to JLA: Classified #1:

"I'm truly baffled by people who didn't enjoy this. I can only assume that after so repeatedly having their critical senses dulled by the onslought of Avengers Dissassembled and Identity Crisis that folks can simply no longer tell good from bad. 'Ugh, this first issue didn't feature any rape at all! And something actually happened! No, no, this is all wrong. It's that damned wacky Grant Morrison and his space drugs again!' No, bad comics have simply made you stupid. It's not your fault."
