Last week was a nice quiet week for those of us who needed our geek fix. A couple of good comics, but not much else. This week though…we’re getting it in spades! Friday the 13th and Ghostbusters on Blu-Ray, some excellent big event comics, and even a couple of video games!
You know you wait with baited breath for your Tuesday Best Buy visit and your Wednesday comic shop visit! Well, here’s a list of the good stuff coming out this week – don’t waste your money on anything else!
Have a seat and let The Pault Keeper help you figure out…

Friday the 13th (DVD/Blu-Ray):
No one else seemed to enjoy the Friday the 13th redux as much as I did, but I thought it was a great addition to the series and it seemed to have succeeded in what it sent out to do – bringing the Jason franchise back from the dead! The DVD edition seems to be pretty sparse, save for the “Killer Cut,” which looks to be about 7 minutes longer. The Blu-Ray looks loaded, though, with a ton of behind the scenes featurettes and deleted/extended scenes. Also keep an eye out for the Friday the 13th double dips on parts 4-6 (and 2 and 3 on Blu-Ray), loaded with a ton of special features!
Batman Streets Of Gotham #1 (DC Comics)
Paul Dini. Dustin Nguyen. Do you really need to know any more?
Hitman Vol 1 A Rage In Arkham TP (DC Comics)
The return of probably the greatest in-continuity (kinda) DC book ever. Garth Ennis was writing Hitman at the same time as Preacher, so it pretty much got ignored, but, ultimately, Hitman ends up with a more satisfying ending. Start at the beginning, featuring appearances by The Demon and Batman!
Outsiders #19 (DC Comics)
Are you reading this book yet? Because it started during Battle for the Cowl, it doesn’t have the pretty Batman: Reborn logo on it, but The Outsiders fits squarely into the new Batuniverse, with Alfred heading up the new team (which seems strangely ignored in the other Batbooks).
Cable #15 (Messiah War Part 6) (Marvel)
The excellent Messiah War continues in this week’s issue of Cable, featuring the return of Apocalypse!
Captain America #600 (Marvel)
Early word is that this one will feature a lot of media hype. Will this be the return of Steve Rogers? We know for sure that at least the female Bucky from Onslaught Reborn will be back.
Ghostbusters (Xbox 360/Ps3/Wii/Ps3/DS)
The Ghostbusters return on pretty much every system, with almost all of the original cast providing voices for this highly anticipated new game that takes place three years after Ghostbusters II.
Prototype (Xbox 360/Ps3/PC)
The highly anticipated open world game is finally out. You are the PROTOTYPE, Alex Mercer, hiding in human form. You step out onto the streets of New York with no memory, but limitless power. As a terrifying viral epidemic sweeps across Manhattan, top-secret Black Watch Special Forces move in, transforming it into a war zone. Delve into the mysteries of your origin, the true nature of your power and your part in a conspiracy 40 years in the making.
