The Champions #1, Marvel. Mark Waid and Humberto Ramos’ new teen Avengers spinoff series looks really fun.

Power Man and Iron Fist Epic Collection: Revenge!, Marvel. I’m all about the Luke Cage these days thanks to Netflix.

Mine are all #1s this week, just for the hell of it:

Cage! #1, Marvel. Hey, they stole my slogan! (Heh.) I’ll go out on a (mostly) sight-unseen limb and say that this much-much-much-delayed Genndy Tartakovsky project will be one of the best books of the year. Or at least the most fun. I imagine that I’ll be hearing a lot of wocka-chicka, wocka-chicka in my head as I read this. Good on Marvel for releasing this the Wednesday after Luke Cage debuted on Netflix. (I have two eps under the belt so far.)

Death of Hawkman #1, DC. Boy, DC brings back Hawkman just to (ostensibly) kill him off. I’m not sure what makes me happier — that we get a handful of issues of Katar Hol or the riff on Ira Schnapp’s classic logo. By Marc Andreyko, Aaron Lopresti, John Livesay and Blond.

Enchanted Tiki Room #1, Marvel. I’m not a Disney guy. I always, always, preferred Warner Brothers’ snarkier and much funnier menagerie of characters. But there’s something charming about this latest comic based on a theme-park attraction. (Check out the preview, by Jon Adams and Horacio Domingues, by clicking here.)

Jessica Jones #1, Marvel. Again, shrewd play by the House of Ideas bringing back Jessica Jones and her original creative team — Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Gaydos, Matt Hollingsworth, David Mack —┬áthe same week as Cage!

Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love #1, DC. Lord, this cracks me up. DC digs waaaaaaaaaaaaay deep into the Bronze Age for this gothic-romance┬átitle, then turns it inside out by making it a Deadman vehicle. Why isn’t Deadman a TV series by now? It’s one of DC’s most TV-ready concepts. (By Sarah Vaughn, Lan Medina and Jose Villarrubia.)
