Who’s Getting What This Week?

Parker's Descent

Wow. Quite the week for quality comics. Here’s what I’ll be spending my hard earned (but not really) money on this week:

Detective Comics #857
Fantastic Four #571
Invincible #66
Power Girl #5
Superman: Secret Origins #1
Underground #1

I’m on the fence right now about X-Men: The List even though Matt Fraction and comic artist extraordinaire Alan Davis are working on it. I’ll have to flip through it first (much like I did with Moon Knight last week before I decided not to buy it). The first two The List one-shits one shots have been quite worthless.

Gary Frank comes back to Superman with Secret Origins. Jeff Parker is writing a new indie book, Underground. Jonathan Hickman continues his Fantastic Four run. Cory Walker returns to Invincible for a two issue stint. Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner continue with what is one of the most fun comics in the industry right now, Power Girl. And last but certainly not least we have the new issue of Detective Comics. Nuff’ said.

Do not fret those of you who do not care for quality writing in your comics. New Avengers, Spider-Woman and Old Man Logan will be waiting for you at your local comic shop. They need your validation to give them some sense of self worth. Buy them and love them. But like an ugly person with a smoking body you are dating, do not tell your friends you are spending time with them because deep down inside you are quite embarrassed about the whole situation.

    Blackest Night Superman 2(Psycho Pirate part of IGN preview looks really awesome)
    Detective Comics 857(J.H. Williams is god)
    Wednesday Comics 12(Sad that its over)
    Superman Secret Origin 1(Buying this mainly for Frank’s art)
    Amazing Spider Man 606(Hopefully Kelly’s American Son will rub off on this arc)
    Fantastic Four 571(Hickman is a bresh of fresh air after millar’s piece of crap)
    Incredible Hercules 135(Pleasure having this twice a month)
    Invincible 66(Loved the last Viltrumite interlude, plus Walker’s drawing)

    Dark Reign List X-men(Will look at it just for art, can’t stand Fraction anymore)
    Dark X men confession(stupid point for one shot, but Yost and Kyle are good enough)

    At least after this week I will never have to hear the words Old Man Logan ever again.

      I heard Dark X-Men Confession blows balls. Also dont waste your money on Dark Reign X Men the list. They should call it fucking Dark Reign Namor the list instead, but you know Marvel! A Namor the list book probably wouldn’t sell as good as an X-men book. I feel sad for those who fell into that trap of buying it for 3.99. Whack attack

      • Good jumping on point for Agents of Atlas? Well, there is a trade collecting the initial 6 issue mini series. Marvel just released a hardcover collecting the first five issues of the current series. Also the current series just ended with issue #11. Next month though there will be an Agents of Atlas vs. X-Men two issue mini written by Jeff Parker. After that AoA will be a back-up feature in Incredible Herc and will run till next year.

        Elliott and I also taped an AoA #11 review that should go up in the next day or two on our you tube channel.

        Hope that helps.

    Odd that the shipping lists show Hack/Slash #26 for this week, even though my LCS got that issue about a month ago. Just one week after #25 had came out which I thought was unusual at the time.

  16. Brandonpwns1244 says:

    I feel bad for those who actually bought Spider Woman for 3.99. Is marvel actually expecting people to pay 1.99 for the motion comic, and then go ahead and pay another 3.99 for a fucking printed version of the exact same thing. Whack attack
