Yes, its another Wednesday when we will be getting our new comics a day earlier than the Americans.
Here's some of what we'll be reading, while they wait till Thursday.

Buffy and Fray battle an old enemy in the future, while Dawn horses around.
Also, the 5th volume of the Buffy Omnibus arrives .This one begins immediately after Season Three, after Sunnydale High has gone up in flames. Buffy is plagued by dreams of fellow Slayer Faith, who now lies in a comma. Jane Espenson, the celebrated writer from the Buffy TV show, writes the powerful Faith story Haunted. And as summer comes to an end, Buffy and Willow begin their first year of college in The Blood of Carthage, in a story written by acclaimed Buffy novelist Christopher Golden. Meanwhile Buffy embarks on a new romance with Riley Finn, and Willow and Oz's relationship comes to an end in Golden's Oz: Into the Wild. This volume also features work by Buffy Season Eight contributors Cliff Richards and Paul Lee and Brian Horton. * Collects Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Haunted, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Blood of Carthage, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Autumnal, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Oz "Into the Wild," DHP 2000: Buffy the Vampire Slayer "Take Back the Night," DHP #150: Buffy the Vampire Slayer "Killing Time" ,352 pages,

Fable #75 finally arrives, a few weeks late, but worth the wait. This is the big wrap-up to the war of Fablelands storyline, and had many people worried it was the end of the series as well.
Its a double -sized issue that promises that nothing will ever be the same after this, and someone dies. Well when dealing with comics, death is never permanent, and even less so when talking about Fables.

Marvel starts its goofiest project yet, as Marvel Apes #1 ships. I'm not even sure how they came up with this one, monkeys have always been more of a D.C. thing. There must be at least a dozen regular simian characters running around the D.C. universe. Marvel has to take us to an alternate "monkey" universe to make this work. Still it looks like it could be fun, and is at least a stand-alone mini-series, despite the impression all the monkey variant covers shipping lately, might give you.
