The Week In Awesome! Incarceron and More!

Things that caught my attention this week...

Incarceron - The biggest release of the week in books, really.  This is a young adult fantasy that's been getting a lot of buzz.  By Catherine Fisher, it should appeal to fans of recent hits like The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner.

C2E2 - Chicago's new comic book convention boasts a list of major artist appearances, including Chris Ware, which may indicate a show with something to offer, unlike the faltering Wizard World Chicago convention with its weak panel offerings and poor showing that couldn't even tempt major publishers to attend last year.  It's about time the midwest gets a good covention again.

The Heroic Age - Marvel announced a new direction for the Marvel Universe beginning in May, turning its back on the dark, trying times of recent years for the heroes.

Batman and Robin #7 - Cameron Stewart's first issue as artist on the series, written by Grant Morrison, is really, really great.  "Blackest Knight" should be a fun storyarc.

TV shows - Caprica, from the creators of Battlestar: Galactica, debuts with a fantastic first episode, while Joss Whedon's Dollhouse comes to a startling end with a bang.  Also, this coming Tuesday: the return of Lost!
