Tails of the Pet Avengers #1

While Super Hero Squad may be getting attention and acclaim, Marvel's true all-ages gem gets another shot on the comic racks. "Super Hero Squad" doesn't have Frog-Thor, does it?

Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #3

"Blackest Night: Wonder Woman" #3 begins the wrap up of the "Blackest Night" tie-in miniseries. In other words, this is more "expanded story" than you'd get on the newly deputized Star Sapphire – Wonder Woman.
