GIGANTIC is the word. Good thing I get paid tomorrow. I picked up the following (a few more on the way, I wanted Bloodshot #1 but no dice):
Amazing Spider-Man: Ends of the Earth (one-shot) – Maybe it’s good?
Avengers vs. X-Men #04 – This I know isn’t good; in fact it’s stupid. The Cap vs. Wolverine scrape from last issue was ridiculous and not in a good way. This is just a dumb hero v hero battle comic, shades of the marvel/DC crossover where fans voted on whether Logan could beat Lobo, etc. Stupid on another level too, ’cause I keep getting them.
Dancer #01 – I had all but written Image off but someone they’ve come back strong with a varied line of interesting super-hero/non-super hero material that’s kept me intrigued. I’ll at least pick up a first or second issue of a new series. Speaking of:
Danger Club #02 – hooked from the first issue.
Daredevil #13 – This new quasi-lighthearted take on DD has me looking forward to this every month. Let’s hope Waid can string together a run like Bendis.
Fantastic Four #605.1 – Impulse purchase.
Fury Max #02 – I loved both Punisher MAX series, so if Ennis is involved I’m there.
Hardcore #01 – See Dancer and Danger Club.
Incredible Hulk #07.1 – Where did you go Marc Silvestri???
Justice League #09 – I swore for years I would never read a Justice League comic and yet here we are. Stil marveling (heh) at the fact that the New 52 gamble seems to have paid off.
Locke & Key – Clockworks #06 – When I first heard Stephen King’s kid was getting into comics, I gave the news an eye roll and that’s it. That was before I started reading L&K. Now I tell everyone about this. Read it. It’s good.
Pigs #06 – I forgot to get this issue at some point, so this is backfill. Another very intriguing pick from Image.
Saga #03 – The art isn’t exactly my thing, but hell, BKVaugh is writing it so I’ll give it a good, oh, 20 issues.
The Manhattan Project #03 – I LOVE this so far. The closest thing I can compare it to is Planetary, which I could read on a daily basis. That series might be in my Top 5 All Time.
Uncanny X-Men #12 – See AvX #4. I’m a sucker for crossovers, especially ones staring the X-Men. I believe this affliction started way back at X-Cutioner’s Song.
Winter Soldier #05 – Impulse.
Wonder Woman #09 – Another favorite New 52 title. I can honestly say I’d never picked up a Wonder Woman book before this reboot but I’m glad I gave this book a chance.
X-Factor #236 – I didn’t really check the cover too carefully, ’cause I thought it was Gideon on the cover. What can I say, I lie his name and I like his topknot. Sadly, it’s some doucher named Scattershot which sounds like your run of the mill mid-’90’s Image character. BloodStryke! HellWulf!
