If you're here in the Panel Discussion programming block, you might be a lapsed comics reader, trying to find a way back to the JLA Satellite. Or you might someone killing time until you pick up your weekly Wednesday pull list. Or maybe you've said goodbye to dozens of longboxes to embrace the promise of digital comics. Whichever it is, you're still interested in the good stuff.

Welcome, then, to the Panel Discussion Dozen Quintet, where I pick out just-released or out-soon comics that I think are worth paying attention to. Ready? Then, let's meet the sequential art that'll be draining your wallet this week. Be sure to chime in with the books you'll be picking up or that you think everybody should be ready in the comments.

Fury of Firestorm #0
Despite being a Firestorm fan from way back in the ‘80s, I'd given up on the latest reboot of the atomically powered superhero. But this #0—which I've read already thanks to a preview from DC Comics—has convinced me to jump back in.

Yeah, definitely need to read Happy. I've become a trade waiter in the last year or so though, so I'll probably be waiting on this too. Hopefully it'll be worth it. Image has been blowing up like crazy lately, I'm guessing partly due to what seems like a lot more corporate control over at the big 2. Clearly their loss is Image's (and the creator owned market in general's) gain.... and Valiant's from the sounds of things over their. Hopefully they'll be on the ball with trades when they get that far.
