If you’ve been following my Queues this month, you know I’m not a big fan of how light this month’s been in terms of awesome titles. A few big’uns snuck through, but not enough.

We’re changing up the format a bit this week. Instead of a chart or list filed under headers, I’m just going to give you a list each week of 10 or less titles coming this week that look interesting and give you my quick thoughts. If I get stuff in advance I may even review it here.

This week’s column sees only a handful of titles but they are all great! I’m just going to go in alphabetical order and start the hit parade.
