Wow, that’s a crazy good-looking shipment of comics. If you can’t find something awesome to buy this week, your heart is three sizes to small.

  1. I agree, that is a solid week, looking forward to it!
    I’m really enjoying the Image stuff right now, so I’ll be getting Mudman, Morning Glories, Thief of Thieves, and Secret.
    Also enjoying most of the Dark new 52, so I’ll pick up Animal Man and Swamp Thing. Really excited to see where Dial H goes too…
    Also grabbing Earth 2 to see what the hubub is about, Action Comics, and the surprisingly good Popeye!
    (No, I’m really not buying any Marvel comics. Because I don’t want to.)

  2. Time to get my heart checked.

  3. Guess it’s time to get my heart checked.

  4. Spa fon! Not only was I unaware that SQUA TRONT #13 was coming out, but apparently there must be a SQUA TRONT #12 out that I was also unaware of. Have to pick them both up sometime.

    And MUDMAN, wow. I was beginning to think that had fallen into the chasm of abandoned Paul Grist titles.

    And a BATMAN ICE CUBE TRAY? That makes my week complete. How long before we get a WATCHMEN ICE CUBE TRAY?

  5. Superman Family Adventures got my book of the week for last week – that was great fun. Sod ‘for kids’, that book felt like it was just for me!

    ACTION COMICS #10 – #9 certainly lived up to Mozza’s potential, so let’s hope this one does as well! Not keen on Brad Walker being on art, but the books editor doesn’t seem to see art or art consistency as a priority, but it’s not like comics are a visual medium, so I won’t let it bother me.

    ANIMAL MAN #10 – Along with Swamp Thing, this book features the best writing and art you will see given to such a drawn out boring plot. No more Rot!

    CREATOR OWNED HEROES #1 – I’m not sure what this is, but I do like a bit of Noto art.

    DIAL H #2 – It’s weird DC has kept quiet about this one. It’s got China Mieville writing it! It had an emo superhero with the power to make people cry!

    EARTH 2 #2 – I hope this gets to the superhero action nice and quick, rather than decompressed muck about figuring it all out whilst building a bigger picture. I wanna see Alan Scott and Jay Garrick in uniform fighting a super-villain by the end of the issue!

    EXTERMINATION #1 – I’ll buy that for a dollar.

    GREEN ARROW #10 – Go Noncenti! The Nu52 needs more books like this.

    MORNING GLORIES #19 – I hope there’s some answers, but that they just lead to more questions!

    MUDMAN #4 – The best English superhero sold in the American market!

    SUPER DINOSAUR #11 – Why is this the only book about a talking, missile launching dinosaur and his buddy on the market? WHY?

    SWAMP THING #10 – Along with Animal Man, this book features the best writing and art you will see given to such a drawn out boring plot. No more Rot!

    TRIO #2 – Y’know… I kinda liked it.

    BLEEDING COOL MAGAZINE #0 – Let’s hope someone showed Rich the spell check function!

  6. After being almost completely idle last week we lurch forward with COMICS! of assuredly variable quality and availability given the advent of artificial “hoopla.”

    ACTION COMICS #10
    Sooooo I don’t read solicits or previews much any more. Is this going to be more of President Superman? If so, “Yay!” If not, “Yay!” Yep, that’s how much I generally like Morrison.

    CREATOR OWNED HEROES #1
    I really like Phil Noto. Dig it very much. And, you know, if it delivers what the title promises then it’s worth supporting.

    DIAL H #2
    I was, I don’t know, charmed maybe? We’ll see.

    EARTH 2 #2
    This, I loved. I thought it was pretty novel and an easy slam dunk to launch a series with a “last story.” It also dovetailed really nicely with the idea of launching a new universe in a way I think we should all embrace. I mean, I look at the trailer for the new Spider-Man flick and I’m just overcome with a sense of loathing for the warmed over origin. Think about this, aside from character names is ANYTHING or ANYONE in Earth 2 a “reprint” of a previous incarnation?

    HARBINGER (ONGOING) #1
    Liked X-O / Liked the preview of Harbinger. Liked the IDEA of Harbinger last time around. That’s a good editing / publishing decision to introduce one book – preview another – and then (I think) sync up your small line so that the majority of it comes out the same week. If it’s only going to be a 4-5 book line I could easily see myself having a Valiant week.

    WORLDS FINEST #2
    Like the dual artist approach, generally like anything Kevin Maguire does. Strikeback, anyone? Found myself a little put off by the need to immediately get Powergirl practically (Perez art) nude. Odd, considering how much I loved those three issues of Batman Confidential…Too late to suggest Maguire for cheesecake potential?

    X-O MANOWAR (ONGOING) #2
    Liked it, liked it, liked it. Part of me almost hopes that he doesn’t get the suit again this issue. Not the part of me that actually wants the line to succeed, though. More the contrarian asshole part, really.

  7. So is everyone just afraid to admit they’re buying Before Watchmen, or what?

  8. Still travelling, and away from my LCS in Ottawa, but luckilly found myself in LONDON this week! Pip pip stiff upper lip! Some mighty fine shops here, kids. Have a pint and mind the gap. I’ve asked around for JohnK (UK) but to no avail!

    ACTION COMICS #10 – not sure why I ticked this off, but last issue was good enough wasn’t it?

    BEFORE WATCHMEN MINUTEMEN #1 – Yes. Yes I am. Few will admit it, but I’ll fess up that I’m buying it.

    CREATOR OWNED HEROES #1 REG CVR – clunker of a name, but Noto is fab. And (gasp! choke!) Image has banked some credibility, so I’ll be sampling more of their new books.

    DIAL H #2 – got my copy of #1 signed by China Mieville. LONDON!

    EARTH 2 #2 – I wanted to give this a try for Robinson, but was HIGHLY sceptical going in. Prejudiced, even. It rocked me. Let’s keep that up, shall we.

    EXTERMINATION #1 – 50 pence and twice the bargain!

    GI COMBAT #2 – well, it exists (tm and copyright Graeme MacMillan LLP). My inner ten year-old comics reader thinks the notion of soldiers fighting dinos is prima fascia AWESOME, but this took itself a bit too seriously. Also, and this is just beacause of my work, if you are going to slavishly photo-ref your military gear spend ten seconds with Mr Google and get it right. The US troopies were on a Soviet era heli-carrier, and the North Koreans were driving iconically American tanks. So that bugged me, even if I was onboard for dinosaurs.

    SECRET #2 – Secret AAAAAA-GENT Maaaaaan!

    SWAMP THING #10 – I may be dropping this soon. Less rot, more plot!

    THE LONE RANGER #6 – it’s purdy and a’gritty and I reckon it’s a mighty fine book. A-yup.

    THIEF OF THIEVES #5 – last issue was the first that was not 100% succesful for me. But it’s still a fun read, and I love Martinborough. LOVE. But what the WHAT is going on with those back issue prices?

    WINTER SOLDIER #6 – Michael Lark is back, so I’m expecting something more “Gotham Central” and less “Super Villain Team Up.” Luckilly, I loved both of those books.

    Greenwich Mean Time? No! It’s COMICS TIME! Comics! Be they in pence, dollars or rubles, I love em! Keep calm and comic on!

  9. No, Pete. I won’t be getting it.

    I think it’s just too much of a poisoned well for me. I wouldn’t be able to look at it without trying to manage the politics of it. And, while I am on record as defending the validity of a system of monetary exchange based on agreed upon contractual terms, I just can’t support this.

    I LIKE Alan Moore’s work too much.

    Not to say that people who get it are “lesser” or anything I just can’t see it for myself.

    Let us know what you think of it though, won’t you?

  10. A Tickertape parade and Robbie Williams can only mean – COMICS!!!

    ACTION COMICS #10
    (It’s okay but it should be…super!)
    ANIMAL MAN #10
    (What Ben Lipman was too much of a gentlemen to say, but strongly hinted at, is: this Rot stuff is ****ing interminable!)
    FURY MAX #3
    (Get some!)
    IZOMBIE #26
    (Chris Roberson has grown on me recently. Like a creator’s rights aware moss.)
    MUDMAN #4
    (Buy it or I swear I will have no recourse but to mention this again!)
    SWEET TOOTH #34
    (Hey, wouldn’t The Rot have been more appropriate here?)
    TRIO #2
    (Guilt.)

    Hey Corey D(UK), I thought that was you! I was on the other side of the road and the traffic was too heavy to get across in time. Looked like you were headed down the apples and pears into the rub a dub dub for some laugh and titter. Hope you are enjoying JubileeTown! Be a gent and buy something and help our economy out! The Queen says “Hi!”.

    COMICS!!!!!

  11. Damn if I didn’t wish I was in London so I could bump into Cory and John K at the pub and we could all ring Alan Moore’s doorbell and run away. (Northampton is across the street, right?)

    Not only will I not be buying Before Watchmen, I’ll likely never purchase a DC book again. Extreme overreaction? Well, I do like the Moore Supreme books quite a bit.

    HARBINGER (ONGOING) #1 – Valiant fanboy am I.
    MUDMAN #4 – YAY!!!!!
    SECRET #2 – Hickman’s creator owned stuff is usually very good
    THIEF OF THIEVES #5 – Eh, not the best, but it’s relaxing
    TRIO #2 – I love how bad it is.
    X-O MANOWAR (ONGOING) #2 – Valiant 4 Life

    I also have 2 weeks worth of books to pick up.

  12. @Pete – I will not be buying, pirating, flipping through, reading online previews of any Before Watchmen! Even if Moore gave his blessing, I’d be pretty ambivalent about it – ‘prequels suck’ is a pretty solid rule for life – but knowing the real world situation behind it makes it something I want to cross the street to avoid.

    @Chris Hero – I’m heading to England later in the year, and my English girlfriend is still trying to convince me that going to Northampton for an Alan Moore hunt is a bad idea. He’s the guy with the big bushy beard – how hard could it be?
    Also, was it the line about the fisherman having heard the legends of Mermaids that makes you want Trio #2? That made me laugh.

  13. @Ben Lipman

    So you won’t be watching Prometheus either, I take it?

  14. @Pete – I was only going to get the one drawn by Darwyn Cooke. But after Chris Roberson’s rant/kerfluffle – I decided to just skip even that one. To be honest, even though I’m sure the books will look great, there are 1,000 other series coming out that I haven’t had time to get to yet (Locke & Key, Chew, etc.), so why bother? I don’t like JMS, and Len Wein’s name doesn’t do much for me either.
    But I will be in line at midnight to see PROMETHEUS.

  15. Rules are made to be broken Pete, especially rules for life!
    I wasn’t keen on the idea of it, but then they said it was barely a prequel, and more importantly, it had a kick-ass trailer which got me very interested.
    BUT, the positive reviews of the film make it sound very middle of the road, and thanks to Sydney Film Festival starting tonight I’m seeing 17 films over the next week and a half as it is, so I might not bother with Sir Ridley’s latest at all.
    (Tonight I’m seeing an animated bio/adaptation of Manga artist Yoshihiro Tatsumi! Can Prometheus really top that for thrills?)

  16. Hmmm…tired of trying new books only to have them further dissolve my faith in comics, so I’ll be spending the comic exploratory fund and spending it on PROMETHEUS tickets.

    Unless someone here has a MUST READ for me…

  17. X-O Manowar #2 – It’s decent enough, but the fact that 2 issues in has now gotten us to roughly the 4th page of the first X-O book is more than a little problematic. I mean, if they were doing something different, that would be one thing. But this is the same damn origin story.

    Before Watchmen: Minutemen #1 – Uh…who did Darwyn Cooke think was going to buy this book? The entire first issue is nothing but a series of vignettes introducing the characters. Anyone who’s picking this up, though, already knows exactly who they are. I spent $4 for, essentially, 26 pages of Cooke say “Hey, remember these guys from Watchmen?” Now I’m supposed to pay another $4 next month in the hopes that a story might finally pop up?
