New Comic Book Day is upon us and it's bound to be one to remember. With spoilers running rampant - and with DC doing little to put a stopper on them - many fans were unduly alerted to the major plot twist in Grant Morrison's Batman Incorporated #8, but we're taking it with a grain of salt. Nothing is ever as it appears when Morrison is involved. Bats and robins aside, this week's new comics include a couple of time travelers, Avengers aplenty, and the conclusion to DC's aquatic game of thrones.
