This episode’s stack comes from new comic Wednesdays 11/23 and 11/30! Get ready for the JSA’s (second, maybe third?) return, G.I. Joe saying farewell to IDW, that time Yoda saved the Murlocks, Doctor Strange getting even trippier, and Kal-El’s return (FINALLY)! As always, THN will be using their rating system of “Buy It,” “Skim It,” or “Leave It,” which of course doesn’t mean much. It’s like giving THREE stars when everyone knows FOUR is the Magic Number.

New Comic Book Reviews:
Then it’s time to talk about our must-read picks for next week’s new comics:
Matt’s Pick for Next Week:
All Against All #1
Image Comics, $3.99
Written by Alex Paknadel
Art by Caspar Wijngaard
Solict: Writer ALEX PAKNADEL (DC vs. Vampires: All Out War, Giga), artist CASPAR WIJNGAARD (HOME SICK PILOTS), and letterer HASSAN OTSMANE-ELHAOU present a primal vision of humanity gone terribly wrong. In All Against All, it is the distant future. Earth is long gone, but a race of alien conquerors knows as ‘the Operators’ have preserved its most savage animals in an artificial jungle environment they barely understand. With no bodies of their own, the Operators move from world to world, harvesting bodies for the organic exosuits they use to wage their endless wars. Ignored and underestimated by his captors is the habitat’s sole human specimen, Helpless. However, when their efforts to find and harvest an apex predator intensify, he gives them far more than they bargained for. Featuring variant covers by artistic powerhouses as SEAN PHILLIPS (RECKLESS), MARTIN SIMMONDS (THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH), and CHRISTIAN WARD (BLOOD STAINED TEETH)!
