Who’s Getting What This Week?

Posted: October 5, 2010 in Dark Horse, DC Comics, Marvel, Vertigo

Well, there are some good books coming out this Wednesday. Not nearly as bad as last week so I guess we can be thankful for that. Here’s what I’ll be buying:

American Vampire #7
Buffy The Vampire Slayer #37
Klaws of the Panther #1 (Jonathan Maberry)
Metalocalypse: Dethklok #1
SHIELD #4 (Jonathan Hickman)

As I look through the titles being released by Marvel and DC it really is quite hard to get too excited over them these days. I can see myself not buying any of their books (Vertigo doesn’t count as “DC proper” since Johns and Didio are trying everything within their power to fucking bury the imprint) in a year’s time. I am starting to lean towards independent books now more than ever before and I don’t see that trend changing for me.

What are you getting this week?

    Seems like every time it looks like a light Comic Book Week– it is a SLAMMED HC and GN week. Last week was the END OF THE MONTH DUMP… With a HUGE number of collections released.

    Now I am getting used to the FIRST WEEK OF THE MONTH DUMP… As even more HCs and GNs are released this week. I discuss this some more over at my blog if anyone is interested.

    Either way, if I had just purchased what I wanted to read– NOT trying to buy everything on the release list– just what I genuinely wanted to read… My bill– with generous discount figured in– would have still been over $500 USD.

    That’s NOT gonna happen. Ever.

    • MikeF says:

      Your getting Chobits INSIDEMAN? 🙂 A wise choice indeed!

      • Insideman says:

        I’m gonna send you part of my Manga bill you’re responsible for Mike F… You got at least $700 laying around? 🙂

      • Mike F says:

        Haha! Ah damn, That sounds similar to my monthly Manga bill ><

        Also! If you enjoy CLAMP, xxxHolic is a great book! It crossover with Tsubasa which is decent but has a long run, whereas xxxHolic is a bit shorter and easier to follow.

        • Insideman says:

          Psst… Don’t tell anybody but I already bought all the Tsubasa and xxxHolic books… Just sitting around waiting to be read.

          You read Tsubasa before xxxHolic, right? Because xxxHolic then intertwines with Tsubasa– later in the Tsubasa run… I think I got that right.

  4. Bello says:

  11. MikeF says:

    I”m not getting anything this week.

    Both industry leaders having nothing worth buying, and since I’ll be at NY comic-con this weekend, no point buying stuff tomorrow when I’ll probably buy something there.

    Wolverine #2 looks kinda decent but I’ll need a review first, before anything purchase is made.

  12. DeemarCCW says:

    Klaws of the Panther! and SHIELD! top picks

    Rebels #21
    American Vampire #7
    Captain America Forever Allies #3
    Deadpoolmax #1
    Klaws of the Panther #1
    SHIELD #4
    Ultimate Comics Thor #1

    Orc Stain #5

  13. IronMuskrat says:

    Well, lets see..

    Rebels #21

    American Vampire #7

    SHIELD #4

    and any book that I missed while I was away.. Chew #14 is on my list for sure.

    And just a quick question for anybody that knows the answer, What the hell happened to the Brave and the Bold/ Did DC fold the book after JMS decided to leave for Superman and Wonder Woman?


    • TheMSpot says:

      They never gave an official explanation of why no more Brave and the Bold. I would chalk it up to him now writing Superman, Wonder Woman, Superman: Earth One, and Samaritan X that he couldn’t fit it into his schedule.

  14. SmokeyClocks says:

    American Vampire #7
    Chaos War #1
    Taskmaster #2 (first issue was decent set up issue, hope it picks up here)
    Lady Mechanika #0 (it’s steampunk so i have to give it a shot)
    Metalocalypse DethKlok #1 (love the show and brendon small) so hopefully it translates into comic form)

  15. vegedge says:

    anyone else getting necronomicon? the first issue and the previous series the courtyard i thought were really good.

  16. comicbookdude says:

    Looks like I’ll be getting:

    Klaws of the Panther#1
    American Vampire#7

    That should be all! I’m typing this on my new cell phone! I love it!

  17. Pobra says:

    SHIELD #4
    Sweet Tooth #14
    Ultimate Comics Thor #1

    Hickman keeping marvel in the game this week, DC is mostly just shit these days. And my LCS continues to push me towards going all trade, by having little to no indi selection.

  18. megamanx4ever says:

    Brightest Day #11

    Damn nothing came out this week, I may buy a few back issues this week.

  19. Mike F says:

    Anyone picking up the new Alan Moore comic? Any chance CCW will review it?

    From what I hear, its the most disgusting comic he’s written. I guess fairytale porn wasn’t enough for ol’ Alan…

    • tomstewdevine says:

      Sorry to dissapoint but it hasent been disgusting at all just suspenseful.

      • Mike F says:

        I’m not disappointed! Its just what I’m hearing from all reviewers, which is why I’m asking the citizens here, more trustworthy.

        • tomstewdevine says:

          Ya there hasn’t really been anything going on in the comic, but maybe those reviewers have advance copies and it’s going to get way worse. Anyway I don’t know if Moore just wrote these scripts or if they have been around a while like the courtyard stuff, I would like to know though.

  20. sai011 says:

    Wasnt planning any thing but after seeing the picture of dethklok comic, going to get this now. Still want to get dethklok vs the goon.
