New Releases and Highlights for Wednesday, December 31

If you were afraid there would be no new comics this week, rest assured there will be! (Just not that many.) Sorry for the delay on posting this fairly short list of highlights and new releases, but as they say, better late than never!

Marvel only has two books coming out this week, but the first one isn't pulling any punches! SHIELD #1 by Mark Waid and Carlos Pacheco brings readers all of the action, adventure, and intrigue they've come to expect from the elite agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In this new series, everyone's favorite Special Agent Phil Coulson has his pick of the brightest and best of the Marvel universe on a case by case basis. Each issue of the series will be written by Waid with a stunning Marvel artist taking over for every new adventure. Don't miss the first issue of what's sure to be Marvel's next big hit.

Marvel's other big release this week is the All-New Miracleman Annual #1. Joe Quesada has art duties on this one as he brings to life Grant Morrison's lost Miracleman story that takes places prior to the Battle of London. Miracleman fans can not miss this issue. As an added bonus, Peter Milligan and Mike Allred reunited to bring readers a new story that's sure to become a classic.

Check out the rest of this week's release highlights and complete list of new release after the break.

IDW and BOOM! have the crossover event of the year (what's left of it) with the release of Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive #1. Discover what brings these two worlds together in this amazing new series from two fantastic companies. Why is Kirk siding with Dr. Zaius? And does Colonel George Taylor agree? You'll have to find out when you pick this book up.

DC Comics readers have the weekly series issues to hold them over until the new year. In Batman Eternal #39, a great detective has put together the clues as to who or what is behind the plot to bring down Gotham City. By the way, that detective...he's the Riddler. In Earth 2: World's End #13, the Huntress may be forced to pay the ultimate price of war. And in The New 52: Futures End #35, one man has the weight of the world on his shoulders as he faces the power that destroyed Stormwatch.
