I think there were some "event" books maybe some others but, no, there were no New52's this week since they seem to be on a 4-Week schedule and there were 5 Wednesdays this month.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4 did come out today.

DC Release Schedule

Mostly looks like some graphic novels, trades, stuff like that.

Thanks for the replies guys. I now know I didn't miss anything on the DC side I wanted.

I did get TMNT#4 today. Going to read it here real soon, it's on the nightstand top of the pile!

As others have said no fifth week event and no new 52's...Bleeding Cool ran a story about today's lack of books last week. I picked up Legion of Superheroes Secret Origin #2 today, my only DC book.

Reminds me of the old days when 5th weeks were DC/Marvel Skip weeks.

Marvel shipped light this week. Only 11 titles.

I bought my first Archie comic in decades today with the first issue of "Archie Meets KISS".

^^^
I did get the last Ghost Rider, issue 6, featuring the female host of Zarathos. Marvel's upheaval in cancellations recently is bothersome. Seems with the movie 60+ days out they might want an established book where Johnny is around already on the stands. He was playing a support role and was looking forward to him guiding the new host on how to cope.

And Thunderbolts as their journey through time continues.

Ultimates was probably the best book this week. The identity of the Maker was surprising, but made sense and Thor is back to talking to voices that no one can hear.

Why was it a surprise? Wasn't it obvious from issue 1? Everyone I've been discussing the book with has simply talked about it being him from the outset. I'd just taken it as a given.

I didn't know Reed was still around. I thought he was still stuck in the Negative Zone or something.

It wasn't a surprise if you'd been reading the whole series. It was a good book, Ultimate Celestial's is something I didn't expect to see.

Read the Ultimate Hawkeye mini-series to find out what I'm talking about but Hickman created Ultimate Celestials and a brother leadership one of which is Ultimate Xorn. It's been speculated that Reed's Ultimate Future Foundation are some kind of Celestial species as well.

Maybe I'll buy the last issue of whatever-the-crisis-was - Flashpoint? - that preceded the reboot. I'm mildly curious about that.

Yeah, there were even news stories in the fan press about it before the first issue.

There's not much that actually impacts what the new52 is about. Basically, a big battle is happening. A mysterious figure helps Barry solve the "problem" and combines the universes. It's like 2 or 3 pages.

If you can, just read the issue in a comic book store, it's seriously not worth the money.
