This week, we officially ring in the winter season with the upcoming solstice and what better way to warm the cockles of your cold, dead heart than with a steaming hot stack of new comics. This Wednesday's offerings feature a cohort of kick-ass women from Gotham to Mega City One, hard decisions for an Ultimate webslinger, a date with the in-laws Saga-style, Aja's triumphant return, a trip through time with RECONNECT, and a very Morrison Christmas.
