Whole lotta stuff coming out this week but it seems that most of it is not for me. I hope all of you Bat-fans out there have some extra money lying around because you are going to need it. Nice of DC to drop all of those books in one week. Kind of a dick move if you ask me. Here will be the few things I will be picking up this Wednesday:

Gantz Vol 13
Hack Slash Annual 2010
Hellblazer: City of Demons #1
MGS Peace Walker Snake Play Arts Kai Action Figure
The Unwritten #18

3 indie comics, a manga trade and an action figure. Maybe Marvel and DC proper should start putting out some decent comics. It would be a plus if they didn’t cost $3.99 too.

What are you getting this week?


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.

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.

Wow…that’s it, huh? Works for me. What are you getting this week?


Who’s Getting What This Week?

Posted: August 10, 2010 in Image, Marvel, Vertigo

Sorry this post is being put up later than usual. On top of that, I need to go into work early so I have no time to make snarky comments about some of the shit books coming out this week. That will have to wait till later I’m afraid. Here’s what I buying this week:

Daredevil #509 (Andy Diggle, Last issue was better than the two issues of Shadowland combined)
Daytripper #9
Hack Slash: My First Maniac #3
Morning Glories #1
The Unwritten #16

What are you getting this week?


Another week, another shipment of new comics. Overall this week is kinda meh. Sure, I am buying some good stuff but no indies. That is a disappointment. Anyway, here’s what I will be buying:

Action Comics #891
American Vampire #5
Fantastic Four #581 (Jonathan Hickman)
Green Lantern Corps #50
Secret Avengers #3 (Ed Brubaker)
Wonder Woman #601

Don’t know why I am still picking up Fantastic Four but hopefully this issue will remind me. Can you tell how truly apathetic I am about this week’s new comics?

Anyway, what are you getting this week?


Ahhhh, looks like a very good week for quality books. Some good stuff from the indies and Vertigo as well as an offering from Jeff Parker. Doesn’t get much better than this. Here’s what I’ll be buying come Wednesday:
