Who’s Getting What This Week?

Posted: January 18, 2010 in DC Comics, Marvel, Vertigo

Finally, a decent sized week for me. It’s about damn time.

Last week Marvel managed to kinda piss off almost everyone (myself included) so from here on out whenever I list a Marvel comic that I am going to buy I will also be listing the reasons as to why I am. Yes, it bothers me that by buying Marvel comics it does support a company that I have a laundry list of problems with but hopefully by me listing the reasons why I am picking up those comics you will have a better idea of why I choose to support those titles. Here’s what I’ll be getting this week:

Amazing Spider-Man #618 (Dan Slott, Marcos Martin, Mysterio)
Avengers vs. Agents of Atlas #1 (Jeff Parker)
Brave and the Bold #31
Green Lantern Corps #44
Incredible Hercules #140 (Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente, Agents of Atlas back-up)
Joe The Barbarian #1
Power Girl #8
Thunderbolts #140 (Jeff Parker)

I’d also like to point out that Captain America #602 ships this week with Reborn #6 still not out. Fucking classic.

What’s everybody buying on Wednesday?

    Nothing! First time in a while. Though, I’m pretty sure next week is big – the Sword, Chew, Scalped, Detective Comics and some more I think.

  2. Morlock50 says:

    I was thinking of checking out Powergirl, but the art looks extremely cartoony. Is the story good?

    Also in trades: JLA: Earth 2
    and JLA: The Nail and Another Nail

    Only two sure things this week…

    Brave and the Bold #31 This book has been steadily moving up my favorite book list. I think JMS has been writing his ass off on this book and the art has been very solid to boot.

    Avengers vs. Agents of Atlas #1 I was tempted to boycott Marvel all together this week. I decided that isn’t fair to guys like Jeff Parker, who actually knows how to write comics.

    I might get something else this week, just not sure what it will be.

    mighty avengers

    nova (!!!)

    realm of kings inhumans

    uncanny x men

  12. Locusmortis says:

    Nice DC week and some great indies, no marvel

    Blackest Night The Flash #2
    Brave and the Bold #31
    Green Lantern Corps #44
    Outsiders #26
    Phantom Stranger #42
    Starman #81

    G-Man Cape Crisis #5
    Garth Ennis Battlefields Happy Valley #2
    Glamourpuss #11
    Jersey Gods #10

    And the list of whats out shows why marvel takes the market share lead every month. theres 9 DC titles versus 21 Marvel titles but of those 9 DC titles the level of quality is higher. Marvel just floods the market with stuff and enough zombies buy it.
