So…um…this is awkward. If you take a look at my list below you will see that I am getting quite a few Marvel books this Wednesday even though week in and week out I find something new to dislike them for. Why is this happening? Well, it appears that Marvel decided to release almost all of their good books on the same day. Thanks.

This week sees the end of the best miniseries of the year and one of Marvel’s BEST books of the year, Doomwar. That’s the bad news. The good news? All you trade waiters are a little closer to it’s eventual collected release so you can finally see for yourselves WHY we have been loving this comic. How about some more good news? As Doomwar comes to an end Jonathan Maberry’s NEW mini Marvel Universe vs. The Punisher begins (with art by Goran Parlov). If it is half as good as Doomwar I will be very pleased. Oh, and some dude named John Layman is writing Shadowland: Bullseye. I guess John won an Eisner Award over the weekend for a book that he writes about eating. Sounds pretty fucking boring to me but then again people will buy anything. Look no further than Millar or Bendis comics for that in action.

Did I just compare the mighty Layman to Bendis and Millar?

Anywho, here’s what I’m buying:

Doomwar #6 (Jonathan Maberry)
Gorilla Man #2 (Jeff Parker)
Marvel Universe vs The Punisher #1 (Jonathan Maberry)
REBELS #19
