Who’s Getting What This Week?

Posted: October 18, 2010 in DC Comics, Image, Marvel

Looks like some decent comics are coming out this week and it’s about fucking time. Though Shadowland has been absolutely shitastic Daredevil has not been and I find that very odd since the same writer is doing both. The big book for me this week is Morning Glories #3 and if you didn’t already know that you really haven’t been paying attention. Anyway, here’s what I am buying on Wednesday:

Batman Beyond #5
Daredevil #511
Guarding the Globe #2
Morning Glories #3
Power Girl #17
X-Factor #210

This week sees the end of me buying 53 issues in a row of Green Lantern Corps. I love that book to death but DC has decided to put an ex-Top Cow house style hack on art chores and that is just too much for me to handle since I hate that fucking art style. Goodbye Green Lantern Corps, you were a good friend all these years. Maybe I’ll pick you up again when there is a fill in artist. I will miss you.

So, what are you all buying this week?

Whole lotta stuff coming out this week but it seems that most of it is not for me. I hope all of you Bat-fans out there have some extra money lying around because you are going to need it. Nice of DC to drop all of those books in one week. Kind of a dick move if you ask me. Here will be the few things I will be picking up this Wednesday:

Gantz Vol 13
Hack Slash Annual 2010
Hellblazer: City of Demons #1
MGS Peace Walker Snake Play Arts Kai Action Figure
The Unwritten #18

3 indie comics, a manga trade and an action figure. Maybe Marvel and DC proper should start putting out some decent comics. It would be a plus if they didn’t cost $3.99 too.

Who’s Getting What This Week?

Posted: September 27, 2010 in DC Comics, Image, Marvel

I was always under the impression that the last week of the month was usually the biggest shipping wise. Doesn’t seem to be the case in September. What a pitiful new comic day. No wonder August industry sales numbers were so abysmal. If the companies don’t print and ship decent comics how are we supposed to buy them?

Before I go any further I would like a short moment of silence for what will probably be the last issue of Agents of Atlas ever.

Fuck you Marvel.

So, here’s what I will be buying this week:

Atlas #5 (Jeff Parker, Last Issue)
Chew #14
Secret Warriors #20 (Jonathan Hickman)
Wonder Woman #603

Maybe I’ll pick up a trade or two to make up for the not buying of too many monthly comics on Wednesday.

What are you getting this week?

Now this is what I call a quality week. It will be an expensive one but it will also be so worth it. Here’s what I’ll be buying on Wednesday:

Batman Beyond #4
Empowered Vol 6
Hack Slash: My First Maniac #4
Joe The Barbarian #7
Marvel Universe vs The Punisher #4 (Jonathan Maberry, Goran Parlov)
Morning Glories #2
Mystery Society #3
Spider-Man Fantastic Four #3 (Christos Gage, Mario Alberti)
The Unwritten #17
Thunderbolts #148 (Jeff Parker)
X-Factor #209 (Peter David)

So much goodness. It will be a fight for what ends up on the very top of my reading pile.

What will you be getting this week?

Special thanks goes out to Insideman for supplying the shipping list for the blog this week.

It’s the last week of the month so you know it’s gonna be big, right? Sigh…here’s what I’m buying on Wednesday:

Action Comics #892
Dynamo 5 Sins of the Father #3
Fantastic Four #582 (Jonathan Hickman)
Guarding the Globe #1
Invincible #74
Prince of Power #4 (Amadeus Cho is awesome)
Secret Warriors #19 (Haven’t even read the last issue I bought, may be done with this book)
X-Factor #208 (Peter David)
Wonder Woman #602

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to reading Avengers #4. That’s my new All Star Batman and Robin. Gets more and more terrible every issue. That in turn makes it more and more enjoyable to me.
