    @DigBoston and @LeaguePodcast Comic Book Picks of the Week for August 31 , 2011

    COMICS

    OK, the big comic book news gets broken in USA Today, nowadays. Not that we’re complaining. Today marks the re-launch and fanboy-cringing renumbering of the DC Comics universe. The ‘New 52’ starts out with Justice League #1 from Geoff Johns (Flash, Green Lantern) and Jim Lee (X-Men, All Star Batman and Robin, DC Co-Publisher). Come and get it! … The Godfather of the graphic novel format, Will Eisner believed in the teaching power of comics. In WWII, the U.S. Army commissioned him to draw maintenance drawings, step-by-step instructions, and pin-ups for G.I.s abroad. The Best of PS Magazine - Preventive Maintence Monthly comes out today. … Aww Yeah, monkeys! Why let the Justice League and the grunts have all the fun? Beppo the Super Monkey faces Gorilla Grodd in Super-pets Midway Monkey Madness. Don’t slip on any banana peels! … Picks this week from LeaguePodcast.com.

    The Ultimate Universe was meant to set the mightiest heroes in a more realistic setting (and was supposed to be a limited series!). It’s 10 years on and Marvel has used these as the basis for astonishing summer movies.

Written by superstar architect Jonathan Hickman (Fantastic Four, Ultimate Thor). …Original creator Kevin Eastman returns to his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a new #1 from IDW! …Servant of the Bones was an historical horror and murder novel penned by Anne Rice in 1996. IDW stikes again with a stunning adaptation drawn by New York Times Best-selling team of Renae DeLiz and Ray Dillon. Anne Rice Servant Of The Bones #1 (of 6) drops today, see exquisite preview pages here. …Picks this week from LeaguePodcast.
