    Krakoa’s attack on the new Jean Grey school has come at the worst possible time – during an inspection by the Board of Education. And with Krakoa being a living island, as it is, even the power of the experienced X-Men on the staff of the school may not be enough to turn the tide. They may need to turn to Quentin Quire.

    Last issue, the Future Foundation assembled Earth’s heroes to draw the line against an invasion of the Kree. As the battle raged, Spider-Man was summoned back to the portal to the Negative Zone, where he saw something totally unexpected, presuming of course that you have never read a comic book before in your life. If you really want to remain unspoiled, read no further.

    This new series brings together several elements that I’m a fan of – the writing of Chris Roberson (who has won me over with his Fables spin-offs and his I, Zombie series) and the production values of IDW, which have become more and more impressive to me this year. Those elements were enough to make me read the first issue, and the first issue is more than enough to make me read the second.

    It's time once again for an Everything But Imaginary holiday tradition! Every year, the comic book publishers of the world put out special editions, special issues, and occasionally something even grander dedicated to the holidays. And every year, I make it my mission to find, read, and present to you as many of them as possible. We've got a few unusual entries this year as well, including some small press titles you may not have heard from (or may not have heard from in a while) and not one, but two hardcovers that give us a different look at Charles Dickens's most memorable work. Let's get right to it, shall we?

    Sometimes you read a comic book after the fact – in back issues, in collected editions – and you regret not reading it when it first was published. I don’t regret missing Scott Snyder’s run from Detective Comics (Vol. 1) #881-891. I think I was an absolute moron for missing it the first time. Fortunately, DC has collected this story – the best of the Dick Grayson era and one of the best Batman-family stories in a decade – in this handsome hardcover volume, Batman: The Black Mirror.
