Who’s Getting What This Week?

Posted: July 28, 2009 in DC Comics, Marvel

Gettin Wet and Wild

Jeez, you guys couldn’t wait till I got this up to tell us what you were buying? I’ll have to be quicker in the future getting this post up after the list of new books shipping.

If you love shitty comics (Dark Reign minis, Ultimatum) then chances are good you’ll probably piss yourself when you get to your local comic shop. For the rest of us the pickings are slim but to make up for that DC is releasing Detective Comics #855 which should be on your must-buy list as it is on mine.

Here’s what I’m purchasing this week:

Detective Comics #855
Secret Warriors #6
Superman #690
Thunderbolts #134
Wonder Woman #34

I may have to review Ultimatum #5 for the hell of it this week because I had quite a bit of fun reviewing Loeb’s other piece of shit book, Hulk, last week.

So, what are you ladies and germs buying?

    Secret Warriors #6
    Detective Comics #855
    Tales of the Corps #3
    Wolverine Noir #4 (i know it’s wolverine, but this is actually a really good book imo)
    New Avengers #55

    psyched for Detective and Secret Warriors.

  9. Zcorp79 says:

    Secret Warriors #6, Thunderbolts #134, and Detective Comics #855 are all must buys for me this week. I have enjoyed Tales of the Corps and that is crappy that issue 3 is half reprint. Also Secret Warriors is one of the best things next to Agents of Atlas to come out of the Dark Reign saga.

  10. MatthewHex says:

    Everyone’s loving Detective Comics and secret warriors which is great. Thanks for the comments on my site J, much appreciated. I’ll def do a review od the Old Boy series once I’ve finished.

    My list looks something like this:

    Dark X-Men Beginning #2
    New Avengers #55
    Secret Warriors #6
    X-Men Forever #4
    Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #3
    Detective Comics #855
    Justice Society #29
    Superman #690
    Wednesday Comics #4

    • Any time, mate. I think you do a really great job.


    • kurumais says:

      hey matt which hawks are they using in wednesday comics?
      silver age katar or mordern day cater?

      • MatthewHex says:

        Thats a good question kurumais and to be honest with you I’m not sure, it hasn’t been made clear. He has knowledge of the outer space stuff though. He is batteling an alien in the stroy he recognised so I’d go with Katar Hol from Thanagar. The Hawkman story is one of the strongest each week imo.

  11. Chris - CSTATB says:

    Is the new issue of the Sword out today? Number 20? I’m not going to my LCS til tomorrow so I was just wonder, it wasn’t on your list but the Luna Brothers website says its out today!

    • Chris - CSTATB says:

      Actually I’m confused, I don’t even have #19? I’ve lost track which one are they on? Is the Luna’s site messed up?

      • The new issue of the Sword does NOT come out today. Also the last issue to come out was #18. So if you have #18 you’re all caught up.


      • Pobra says:

        i just started reading this book around issue 15 thanks to Jose’s recommendation and managed to find most of the earlier issues in the dollar bin last weekend, how sweet is that.

  12. Chris says:

    Thanks! yeah I’m up to 18. I was sad to hear that its ending soon. It pretty stupid that the Luna Brothers have their schedule wrong.

  13. Locusmortis says:
