The Young Avengers finally return, even though the book is called Avengers the Children's Crusade. Its a 9 issue mini-series published bi-monthly.(Can you really call a 2 year storyline a mini?) The original team of Heinberg and Cheung are back, telling the self-contained(not a x-over) story of the kids helping Wiccan in his search for his mom, the Scarlet Witch.
Neal Adams returns to Batman in a big way with, Batman the Odyssey a 6 issue mini that may take a lot more than 6 months to tell.
Hellboy starts a new 3-issue, and the Hit-Monkey(from Deadpool) gets 3 issues too.
Classic Cap., Steve Rogers, gets 4 issues to prove he's a Super-Soldier, it's by Brubaker, and should set up some future storylines for the main Captain America title.
Classic MarvelMan stories start coming our way with the first of 6 issues. These are actual reprints of the cheesy Capt. Marvel(the DC version) type stories that ran in the U.K. during the 50's and 60's. $4.00 for old B&W reprints sounds pretty "cheesy" as well.
The "street" heroes get their turn at a mega crossover with Shadowland. Centered around the events in recent Daredevil issues, characters like Luke Cage and Iron Fist(of course Spidy and Wolvie will be there too)will help battle Bullseye, Elektra and tons of ninjas for control of the heart of New York. Despite the massive number of spin-offs and tie-ins this looks to have, the main book by Diggle should be pretty good.
Brightest Day spins off a one-shot featuring the "old" Atom, that leads into a regular back-up slot in Adventure Comics. It's written by Sweet Tooth creator, Jeff Lemire, so you wont want to miss it.
Bendis returns to his tough, female ,crime comic genre, with an all-new series, Scarlet. This time he's working with his buddy Maleev.
The only other #1 on the list that looks on-going is another X-Men title. Regular X-Men added the Legacy to its name a while back, so adjective less X-Men was available to restart. The book starts off with the X-Men facing off against a vampire(Twilight strikes again) horde. At least the X-Men have a history with Dracula from years back, I'm not sure how far this story will have go towards tying in with past events however.
The X-Women get a one-shot to shine, it looks a lot like a Sports Illustrated swim-suit special by the cover.
By now most of have seen the trailer for the live-action/animated Smurfs movie. Well I'm pretty sure the comic will be better. It was probably a smart idea to start off with a dollar comic first issue though.
