My pick for this week would have to be Detective Comics #766, the first installment of the Bruce Wayne: Murderer storyline. After last week's setup in Batman: The 10-Cent Adventure, Greg Rucka takes us on a ride through what the GCPD is going through in arresting Bruce Wayne, visiting the crime scene, and interrogating him and his bodyguard, Sasha. Great stuff. Scott McDaniel's art really shines through here, too on is visit over from the Batman title. Definitely a must read.
Honorable mentions would be Thor with Tom Raney's breathtaking artwork and the emotional A Moment of Silence from Marvel, another of their 9-11 tribute books.
While I had been really looking forward to Kindred II from Wildstorm, Booth's artwork seemed to be lacking something this time around. Still, better than a lot of artists out there (can we get this guy on Daredevil, please!!).

King of the Lurkers.
I managed to get my hands on Athena, INC. Thank God! Phew.. I loved it! It was a great read, with gorgeous art by Jay. I've always loved this guy's art since the very begin (Aria fame).. I am totally looking forward to this title.
As to the Batman stuff, I'd love to read Batman, but, to many crossovers. I can only afford so many titles.
This weeks titles (January 11/2002).. I cant think of any title that stood out (The one's I buy that is).. I did enjoy Amazing Spider-Man this week..

I thought ASM was a bit of a let down this week. After Aunt May's discovery in issue 35, I was expecting a confrontation between her and Peter, but I guess we have to wait another month.
As for the Bat titles, you could probably get by with just Detective and Batman (and POSSIBLY Gotham Knights) without missing anything. Heck, most of the time, the stories are pretty independent even among these, so you could survive on just one. The other titles all just add a little something extra to the story. The only other Bat titles I collect beside the three I just mentioned are Nightwing and Robin

Sorry for skipping last week, but nothing really stood out for me. I have two recommendations for this week: Flash and Daredevil.
Geoff Johns is doing an amazing job on The Flash. Even though Flash doesn't appear in this issue, Johns does an excellent job of telling a Captain Cold story. I still wish the colors were a little more vibrant.
Brian Michael Bendis is doing some amazing stuff with Daredevil. My only problem with this title right now is with the artwork. Maleev is certainly an outstanding storyteller, but I really don't like his artwork itself. It's too harsh and angular...not nice to look at as far as I'm concerned.

Amazing Spider-man #38. All that happens is Peter talking to May, but I was still interested and entertained by the whole thing. That's amazing.
