Who’s Getting What This Week?

Posted: August 30, 2010 in Dark Horse, DC Comics, Marvel, Radical Publishing

Seems like a decent new comics week. Not too much, not too little. I don’t ever remember what happened in the last issue of Last Days of American Crime. I’ll just have to reread the last two issues before getting to the new one. Here’s what I am buying on Wednesday:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #36
Gorilla Man #3 (Jeff Parker)
Last Days of American Crime #3 
Marvel Universe vs The Punisher #3 (Jonathan Maberry, Goran Parlov)
Scarlet #2 (Can it be as good as the first issue? Kinda doubt it.)

What are you getting this week?


  1. Mike F says:

    I have hope for Scarlet.

    I really do. But, we’ll see soon enough. I might just get that and Shadowland.

  2. megamanx4ever says:

    Brightest Day #9
    Jonah Hex #59
    Haunt #9

    Nice light week for me.

  3. Tonight’s my last night of summer and freedom 😦 Not looking forward to school AT ALL. Anyway to keep me distracted I’ll be getting:

    -Scarlet#2 (I pray that this is as good as #1)

    That’s really about it, unless I can think of a back issue I missed out on.

  4. TheMSpot says:

    Freedom Fighters #1
    Marvel U. vs The Punisher #3
    Scarlet #2

  5. generaldark says:

    I’ve offically gone full trade. I’ve finally done it!

    • Insideman says:

      Good for you Heck! If you want any advice, I’ve read just about every trade released in the last ten years!

      Unfortunately, there was a LOT of crap in that pile.

      • Heck says:

        Anyone certain ones stand out as must reads?

        I realized that the only comic I really truly look forward to is “The Unwritten” so I can just get the trades (low price) and save myself from buying a lot of the junk I ussually get. That’ll give me the extra cash to try other stuff too.

        • Pobra says:

          yeah, i’ve trimmed my pull list down to stuff that i just want to stay current with and pick up everything else in trade/HC. I find it’s a more enjoyable experience, i’m even considering selling my issues of Chew and Sweet Tooth to pick them up in trade. But i don’t mind reading a few super hero books in floppy, keep up the traditional weekly trip to the LCS. If i went full trade, i probably wouldn’t read super hero books anymore, very few anyway.

          • Heck says:

            The only superhero books I read normally are Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Daredevil, and Thor.

            I dropped Daredevil after Brubaker left and Thor after JMS left. Wonder Woman I sorta dropped after Simone, but got one of the JMS issues and thought it was kinda dull. It would read better in the trades.

            With Superman, it just seems like everything they can do to distance him from the character I’ve grown up loving, has been (or is being) done.

            I’m pretty much down with regularly buying superhero comics. I like Supergirl (stories are fun, art is great) but it doesn’t justify being my only DC book.

    • generaldark says:

      idk…seems like alot of unnecessary marvel books. actually 3 or 4….IMO

      • Bboyce109 says:

        which ones besides Iron Man 2 Agents of Shield #1 which was a mistake im not getting that issue.

        • generaldark says:

          I Am An Avenger #1
          Origins of Marvel Comics X-Men #1
          Shadowland Elektra #1

          those would be the ones i dont think are necessary. these are my opinions tho.

          • TheGateJester says:

            I concur.

            • tomstewdevine says:

              I say buy what makes YOU happy.

              • generaldark says:

                i want to be happy to >_<

                • You buy the most unnecessary book of all GD, Brightest Day. Glasses houses and all that stuff.


                  • Bboyce109 says:

                    I Am An Avenger #1 (im just trying this one out most likely buying only this one issue unless its good)

                    Origins of Marvel Comics X-Men #1(Just got into X-Men not that long ago, so i want to see wheres it at even though i could use wiki)

                    Shadowland Elektra #1(Im reading Shadowland and this is one of the few tie ins im going to read)

                    All the stuff i buy makes me happy until i finally realize the material inside turns to crap. Im still reading Brightest Day and even though its on the borderline of being dropped i will continue on reading it until i feel its necessary not to anymore.

  22. IronMuskrat says:

    Well, finally getting settled into my new work schedule and one of the few good things about it is my new off days will allow me to pick up comics on Wednesday from now one… Now if I have the energy to read them =)

    Rebels #20- This should be a pretty good issue, one of my all time favorite characters shows back up in this issue and I think it will make for a great time for the readers.

    Marvel Universe vs. The Punisher #3- Issue three already? A fast paced release schedule to match a fast paced story, I wasn’t expecting a showdown between Frank and Spider..Errr.. I mean Patient Zero this quick, but hey.. like I said.. fast paced story..

    I might pick up another book or two, but to be honest I have been out of the loop for awhile and don’t know what else to pick up this week.
