Happy New Year, everyone! And what does 2012 first bring us for our reading pleasure?

Honestly, not a whole lot.

  • DC has the surprisingly useful Annotated Sandman coming out, so if you were worried about missing one of the legions of references to literature, folklore or myth, you’re all set. They’re also rolling out new issues of “Animal Man” and “Swamp Thing”, which since a lackluster first issue has been growing on us. BA-DUM-TISH!
  • Marvel has part two of “X-Sanction” this week, or as we like to call it, “Cable Beats Up The Avengers”. Also this week, their attempt to make Wolverine popular with the ladies, X-23, is mercifully put to sleep after twenty pretty awful issues.
  • Image is debuting Ed Brubaker’s “Fatale” this week, which actually looks pretty promising.
  • And in case you really wanted it, IDW is giving “Duke Nukem” his own trade paperback. Hey, at least the comic is better than the game. We know that’s not saying much.
