Very light week coming up. The only 2 titles I am looking forward to are Phonogram 2: The Singles Club #2 and Unknown Soldier #7, though that is not a bad week due to their inclusion.

Getting over an ex is never easy. When they’ve laid a phonomantic curse on you, it borders on the impossible. In the second of seven stand-alone stories set in a single club, PHONOGRAM’s cynical heart cracks wide open. PLUS two complete back-up stories with art from EMMA VIECELI (HAMLET, COMIC BOOK TATTOO) and DANIEL HEARD (COMIC BOOK TATTOO, CHIMPLANTS).”
Unknown Soldier #7
Written by Joshua Dysart; Art by Alberto Ponticelli; Cover by Dave Johnson
The book IGN called “contender for best new series of the year,” as well as the praise-winner from Garth Ennis, Warren Ellis, G4 TV, The Onion, and Ain’t It Cool News features a special stand-alone story: Locals believe the sub-Sahara bush that Moses now calls home to be haunted by the world’s darker inclinations. But Is Moses preparing for a standoff with that evil… or is he the spirit itself?
Don’t miss this special jumping-on point issue, featuring the debut of new cover artist Dave Johnson!

Diamond Code: FEB09 4410
In development as a major motion picture from Universal Studios!
There is life on other planets. They invaded ours. Pillaging Earth for a decade. Then they vanished without explanation.
THE END WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING…
The science fiction saga that explores the aftermath of Earth’s most brutal conflict starts here! For ten years the alien invaders have laid waste to our planet, but now they’ve vanished, leaving the survivors with two questions–“Where did the ‘bugs’ go?” and “Where does humanity go from here?”
It’s big existential questions, edge-of-your-seat alien-fueled intrigue, and epic thrills in this collection of the original seven installments of Resurrection! (Includes issues 1-6, plus the 2008 Annual.)
Resurrection: The Insurgent Edition collects all of the black-and-white Resurrection material in conjunction with the launch of the new full color ongoing series that’s now in development as a major motion picture with Universal Studios. Created by noted writer and producer Marc Guggenheim (TV’s Eli Stone, Marvel’s Amazing Spider-Man) and featuring moody art from newcomers David Dumeer and Douglas Dabbs, this book picks up where all the other alien invasion stories end.
It’s 184 pages of existential questions, alien-fueled intrigue, and bombastic action for just $6!
This title is volume 1 in the Resurrection series.
