WATCHMEN: Predicting June's Best Comics

HIT PICKS TO CLICK: SUPERMAN #700, BATMAN #700, WONDER WOMAN #600: Wonder Woman and Superman kick-start all new directions! Batman ties into The Return of Bruce Wayne! Covers by Adam Hughes, Gary Frank, David Finch, Mike Mignola, Eduardo Risso, and George Perez! Superman by Dan Jurgens! Wonder Woman by Joe Madureira! Batman by Frank Quitely! The creative teams say it all - these books are milestones.

CLOSE CONTENDERS:
TOM STRONG AND THE ROBOTS OF DOOM #1 (of 6) (Wildstorm): One of Alan Moore's best pulp creations is back, in an all-new tale that sees the world transformed into a Nazi planet run by Tom's son, just as Tesla's wedding celebrations get under way? Hope that's not an omen!

ABE SAPIEN: THE ABYSSAL PLAIN #1 (of 2) (Dark Horse): The Hellboy star dives into an undead mystery, deep on the ocean floor. Written by Mike Mignola himself and with covers by Dave Johnson, this pre-B.P.R.D tale is not to be missed.

X-MEN #1 (Marvel): What's a comic collection without an X-Men #1 or two? This time round all the popular kids (sans Nightcrawler) are in the one book for the self-explanatory Mutants Versus Vampires. Something tells me a guy of faith that can leap out of shadows and kick butt would come in real handy about now.

SHADOWLAND #1 (of 5) (Marvel): Get ready for Street Fighter Marvel style. With Daredevil enforcing his own martial ninja enforced law on Hell's Kitchen, NYC's street-level heroes, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, Iron Fist, Punisher and more, stop in to set him straight - but not before tangling with each other first!
