This Week’s Comics Haul

No time for love, Dr. Jones! And no time for thoughts on this week’s haul just yet.  Soon though, friends.  Soon.  This week though, instead of alphabetically, I’ll sort my acquisition list by the order in which I am most excited to read them, with number one OF COURSE being:

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen – Century #03 – This requires its own post.

The Manhattan Projects #04 – How good is this series? Strong hints of Planetary here, and in all the good ways.

Batman Incorporated #02 – I’m slowly turning from a Marvel Zombie…

Hit Girl #01 – I can’t help it, I love Millars stuff (with the exception of The Unfunnies which was definitely truth in advertising.

Before Watchmen – Nite Owl #01 – I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the other BW titles, so I’ve some hopes for this.

Justice League #10 – Hopefully the snark from the Lantern & the Flash is met with furious Bat-fisticuffs in this issue.
Wolverine and the X-Men #12 – Go back to whimsy & cleverness, dammit!

American Vampire #28 – Read all of the back issues over the past two weeks; this is a solid series.

Fatale #06 – I can honestly say that I like everything Brubaker writes. Criminal, Incognito and now Fatale.  His fedora & moustache obviously contains all of his writing powers, I must have them!

Justice League Dark #10 – Don’t auite recall what happened last issue, but it was clearly interesting enough for me to pick up the following one.

Batman The Dark Knight #10 – Is Finch still on this book?

FF #19 – Think it’s going to be a wrap on this series too.  Do we really need two Fantastic Four/Future Foundation books?

Incredible Hulk #10 – Didn’t I say I was done buying this series?

Spider-Men #02 – If this is another 20 pages of set-up I’m going to be pissed.

Ultimate Comics Ultimate #12 – I hope everyone dies.

 

This Week’s Comics Haul

Batman #09 (Night of the Owls tie-in)

Batman and Robin #09 (Night of the Owls tie-in)

Fairest #03 (Fables spin-off)

Fatale #05 (C’mon, if Brubaker is writing it chances are I’m buying it)

Lobster Johnson: The Burning Hand #05 (not a huge Dark Horse fan or Mignola/Hellboy for that matter, but the name caught my attention)

Ultimate Comics: Ultimates #10 (madness in the Ultimates universe)

Ultimate Comics: X-Men #11 (ditto)

Uncanny X-Force #25 (i don’t know why I keep reading this.  It started off as a pretty cool series, but this last story arc was a muddled mess)

The Walking Dead #97 – less talk, more zombie murder

Wolverine and the X-Men #10 (one of my favorite new books going, alongside Wonder Woman, Animal Man, Swamp Thing & Aquaman.)

For someone who swore up and down that the New 52 was a terrible idea, that it was yet another DC fiasco, etc etc…I find myself looking forward to those books more than just about anything else on the shelves most weeks.
