I'm a little light on books this week, so I'll start this column by declaring that the first Geeks OUT
event in Chicago was a huge success! You can check out the event photos (courtesy of A/S/L Media) here
. It was a great start to building a gay geek community here in Chicago and I look forward to many more. I've also reread last week's launch of Young Avengers
more times then I care to admit. Also, did you SEE the cover for X-Treme X-Men 9
Anyway, onto the books:
Angel and Faith #19
(W) Christos N. Gage (A) Rebekah Isaacs (CA) Dan Jackson, Steve Morris
A demon from Giles's past is turning innocent Slayers into zombies. Angel and Faith must rally the remaining Slayers if there is any chance to defeat this cunning demon!

'THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF MAJOR TITANS' The Secret Origin of Hyperion. The Legacy of the Garden unfolds in the Savage Land.

Cherry's got a gun. And she looks good in it. Hawkeye gets distracted. Just like you are right now.
