Who’s Getting What This Week?

Posted: September 14, 2010 in Dark Horse, DC Comics, Image, Marvel, Vertigo

Now this is what I call a quality week. It will be an expensive one but it will also be so worth it. Here’s what I’ll be buying on Wednesday:

Batman Beyond #4
Empowered Vol 6
Hack Slash: My First Maniac #4
Joe The Barbarian #7
Marvel Universe vs The Punisher #4 (Jonathan Maberry, Goran Parlov)
Morning Glories #2
Mystery Society #3
Spider-Man Fantastic Four #3 (Christos Gage, Mario Alberti)
The Unwritten #17
Thunderbolts #148 (Jeff Parker)
X-Factor #209 (Peter David)

So much goodness. It will be a fight for what ends up on the very top of my reading pile.

What will you be getting this week?


Special thanks goes out to Insideman for supplying the shipping list for the blog this week.

  1. Mike F says:

    I’m not getting anything this week.

    I’ll most likely do some searching at some old stores downtown for some Battle Angel books, or hopefully back issues, seeing that I never really finished collecting the series so long ago…

  2. Deckel2 says:

    No more thunderbolts Jose?
    Or is it just because it’s a Sh(it)adow Land Tie in?

    Hey Nin J, am I mistaken about MorningGlories? At 1st blush I thought it was gonna be like The Freshmen. Now it seems more like Eerie Indiana in a classroom/ Am I close?

  12. IronMuskrat says:

    • It’s gotten to the point for me that if there IS a DC book on my list of things to buy any week I am shocked.


      • Deemar says:


        Same except B&R and the occassional GL read.

        What the hell happened at DC? I was buying mostly DC for a hot minute, then the tide just changed and I didn’t realize the difference.

        • The Fall of Geoff Johns happened and he is dragging DC down with him. We warned you. πŸ™‚


          • Deemar says:

            and I drew it!

            It happened so fast, so fast.

            You loving this lull in Johns career ain’t ya?


            • tomstewdevine says:

              DC’s still has a few good ones: B&R, JLI(they call it generation lost), powergirl, booster gold, Jonah Hex, I’m sure I’m missing some but this is what comes to mind.

          • kurumais says:

            johns has too many irons in fire its sapping him but from what i hear he is doing brillant stuff with larfleeze makes want to check green latern

          • Heck says:

            Oh, how the mighty fall. Everything DC is doing is just so average. They’re inflating their characters with flimsy Silver Age concepts that just don’t work in modern day. Just because you have Kryptonians being impaled on 1,000,000 forms of Kryptonite doesn’t make those 1,000,000 forms of K contempoary. It is WORSE.
