Comic of the Week 7/8

Not only comics to look forward to this week for those of you like me who ordered this in June 0f 2007:

That's right kids, the Gentle Giant Halo 3 Master Chief mini-bust if finally shipping just a shade over 2 years after it's solicitation! I'll take some pics and post them up this weekend once I get him home.

Comic of the Week

Enough of that though, we're here for comics, right? Right. This week's pick has a lot in common with the aforementioned Halo bust, it's been a long time coming. The prelude to DC's next huge event is finally over, and the Black Hand is set to usher in Blackest Night in Green Lantern #43. To say I'm excited about this would be an understatement of mammoth proportions. Solicit reads:

The official prologue to BLACKEST NIGHT starts here as the first Black Lantern is born! Black Hand has been an enemy of Hal Jordan since Hal's early days as a Green Lantern. But even Black Hand is unaware of the true power he holds that will connect him to the Blackest Night! Discover this villain's connection to death and the Black Lantern Corps!

Honorable mention this week goes to Wednesday Comics #1 because you can say what you want to say about the format, but most of those creative teams are not to be messed with. WC should be a fine read.
