  1. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #678 – Just go read the preview of this issue. It’s going to be awesome.

    BATMAN #5 – Batman in a death maze!

    DAREDEVIL #8 – I’m intrigued how this will go. Waid’s been writing the best DD in years, yet he wrote the most average issue of Spider-man in a year or so in the first part of this crossover.

    MORNING GLORIES #15
    PROPHET #21 – I remember reading Prophet #0 as a young lad. Never thought I’d be reading #21.

    RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #5
    SUPERGIRL #5
    VENOM #12
    WONDER WOMAN #5 – All these books are good as well. I got me a fine week of comics ahead.

    SECRET SIX THE DARKEST HOUSE TP – I miss this series, so hopefully the finale will do it justice.

  2. PROPHET #21: Anxious to see if this lives up to the hype as one of the best of the year (already!).

    WASTELAND #33: Anxious to see if this new story/artist/commitment to monthly publishing returns this title to its former glory, feels like 2012 is properly underway with this and Prophet finally coming out.

    BATMAN #5: Aside from BATWOMAN (which was good before), best of The New 52.

    WONDER WOMAN #5: Still good, but I can feel my interest slipping away.

    UNCANNY X-FORCE #20: Bext X-Book on the stands.

  3. Daredevil
    Fables
    Morning Glories
    Tiny Titans
    Wonder Woman

    I must be reading a different BATMAN book then everyone else, the one I was buying had a long boring storyline about owls or something & generic art where all the male characters looked the same. And not to be a total smart-ass in this post but I’ve never heard of Prophet, and it’s got 21 issues? Clue me in please..

  4. So, just out of curiosity, what’s the big draw with Prophet? I mean, indie guys like me are salivating at Brandon Graham writing a book with Simon Roy on art, but I didn’t think either creator was well known in other circles. It’s awesome because both guys need work. I’m just wondering what the draw is….

  5. I’ll (at some unspecified point in the near future) be having a looky-loo at:

    BATMAN ODYSSEY VOL 2 #4
    (Things No One Says: “There just aren’t enough textures in the colouring and nor are there enough hairs on Bruce Wayne’s chest.”)
    DAREDEVIL #8
    (Things no one says: “That cross-over was just the shot in the arm this ailing book needed!”
    HELLBLAZER #287
    (Things no one says: “It was better with Paul Jenkins writing.”)
    JOHN CARTER A PRINCESS OF MARS #5
    JOHN CARTER OF MARS WORLD OF MARS #4
    (Things No One Says: “There just aren’t enough John Carter comics these days.”
    KIRBY GENESIS DRAGONSBANE #1
    (Things No One Says: “Y’know, now that I think about it it seems clear that when it came to creating all those Marvel characters I reckon Stan Lee did it all and was humouring Jack Kirby!”)
    PROPHET #21
    (I have no idea but everyone seems ever so keen so I’m jumping aboard too!)
    THUNDER AGENTS VOL 2 #3
    (Things No One Says: “That bit where Nick Spencer repeated the “Glass of water, ma’am?” page but with the Mom in a flashback in an attempt to suggest how the two character’s destinies echoed through time certainly worked and did not appear to be lazy and worthless at all.”)
    TINY TITANS #48
    (Things No One Says: ”I wish they would cancel this with issue 50!”)
    WONDER WOMAN #5
    (Things No One Says: “I hope Azzarello does that “Hello”/”Hell-Low!” bit again it was amazingly deep!”)

    Remember: They taste fresher from your LCS – COMICS!

  6. @Miked: Prophet was a series created by Rob Liefeld, years back when the Image founders were basically mass-producing “new” “concepts”. This is a total revamp of the character by indie creators that nobody would have expected to work on a Rob Liefeld book, and it’s continuing with the original numbering (probably as kind of a reaction to all the new #1s coming from Marvel and DC lately.)

  7. I always figured JohnK (UK) as a “looky-loo”. This is what I will be braving snow-mageddon to go find.

    BATMAN #5 – love me an old fashioned death maze. Batman #283 was a favorite back when Corey(Ottawa) was merely Corey(Calgary).

    HELLBLAZER #287 – a new storyline starts, for all those tired of John’s laundry adventures. Those last five pages of 286 prove that the Milligan who wrote SKIN is still with us. Dark, Peter. Brrrr.

    JOHN CARTER A PRINCESS OF MARS #5 (OF 5)

    JOHN CARTER OF MARS WORLD OF MARS #4 (OF 4) – Mars needs COMICS!

    LORD OF THE JUNGLE #1 – Another dolla’ book from Dynamite. I have a soft spot for Tarzan comics, though, so I’m there. And might I draw your attention to this nifty webcomic which tells you everything you need to know about Dynamite as a publisher: http://www.the-gutters.com/comic/242-mike-decarlo

    PROPHET #21 – sure, I’ll join in the mob. He better still have that padded headband though. Some 90s things are sacrosanct!(*)

    SUPERGIRL #5 – just keeps getting better and better. Although the art was looser than previously was the case…I guess we’ve used up all the lead time of the reboot.

    TINY TITANS #48 – aw yeah.

    WONDER WOMAN #5 – I had actually missed that this won’t be Chiang. Whodathunk that just blindly ticking WW on my pull list would become a habbit?

    BACK ISSUE #54 – Bronze age AWESOME with the ladies. Barda, Ms. Marvel, Valkyrie, Phioenix, She-Hulk. And that Starfire gal from the nude52. Get a preview from 2morrows: http://twomorrows.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=999&zenid=620biqi3gij25duaev3jfn7ta4

    Comics! Be they paper or that digi-stuff, they be awesome!

    ———-

    (*) DISCALIMER: No….No 90s things are sacrosanct. That was sarcasm, folks. Most were and continue to remain crap. Your parents are LYING to you kiddies. So are comic companies who want to go back to the “good old” 90s.

  8. Batman #5:
    OK Snyder, I’ve been effectively creeped out and unsettled by the owls thing. Good job so far. Now it’s time to have something happen with them!

    Daredevil #8:
    I agree that the Spidey side of this x-over was fun but a bit generic. But expectations are high for the DD side!

    Justice League #5:
    Where the crap is this?? Hibbs – is this planned, or a surprise?

  9. Much like our beloved wait what…the less beloved jl 5 is delayed. And all this despite Jim Lee’s never ending barrage of working late / deadline related tweets.

  10. Oh, wow, DD is coming out this week…guess I’ll be stopping by a comics store, so I get to play along!

    Daredevil – Best superhero comic in years and years. It’s just fundamentally solid. I also need to get that Spider-man comic that ties into this, I think…right? Or am I wrong?

    Prophet – The creative team has me drooling. For those that don’t know, Brandon Graham is *awesome*. King City is one of the coolest comics ever.

    John Carter: Princess – I’ll be reading this when it’s collected! Landridge is awesome, too!

    Ult Spider-man: I’ve been buying this on my iPad. I’ve really enjoyed it so far. It’s a fun read and I like that a new kid is now Spider-man.

  11. @Chris Hero – Is it surprising that people who read Savage Critics are all going for Prophet, or that Hibbs would be pushing a book like that? Also, other sites have been running ‘check this out’ articles for a few months. It’s got buzz!

    @Corey (Ottawa) – I got the digital version of Back Issue, and it’s about a different Starfire from the one starring in the breakout critical darling Redhood And The Outlaws.
    (Literally a different character – I’m not making a sly dig about the shift in realities. This one’s from a Sword And Sorcery comic. Still wears skimpy stuff though!).

  12. @Ben Lipman: yes, you are correct sir. It is Mike Vosburg’s sword in space book, which was uncharacteristically awesome and risque for DC. It is not the uncharacteristic character who wants to “do teh Sex now” with Roy Harper. One of these books was a victim of the DC Implosion. So far.

    But I jest, I just love the hell out of Back Issue.

  13. OK, who had month 5 in the DCnU 52 issue misses a week pool? I had Jim Lee’s JL as the book that skips (safe bet there) but I thought he’d make at least 6 months before he blew a deadline.

  14. Attention, Simon Roy fans. Check out the two-pager he did for the Panels for Primates anthology on ACT-I-VATE. http://act-i-vate.com/114-28.comic

  15. DAREDEVIL #8 – Also need to pick up the Amazing Spidey with the 1st part of this. Ah, the days when a crossover meant you had to pick up one other book instead of 30 of them

    DEFENDERS TOURNAMENT OF HEROES #1 – Not actually buying this because, Defenders nut that I am, I have the original singles, but I’m very amused Marvel is reprinting Dollar Bill’s Defenders For A Day campaign in its awesome goofy glory

    FABLES #113 – I’m thinking I’ll enjoy Bufkin in Oz as its own backup with Shawn McManus art rather than interrupting the main story

    HELLBLAZER #287 – Yes, Corey(Ottawa), this here’s the “good” Milligan firing on all cylinders

    LORD OF THE JUNGLE #1 – I’ll buy that for a dollar. Curious, is there a licensing thing that keeps them from calling it Tarzan, or is Tarzan so passe that they feel better off dropping the name?

    PROPHET #21 – Looking at the above, I guess this really is the buzz book of the week

    WONDER WOMAN #5 – Hoping the switch to Tony Akins art won’t hurt my eyes too much (sorry, no offense, Tony)

  16. @Ben Lipman – It’s not amazing Hibbs would be pushing Prophet, he seems to know his comics. It is amazing to me superhero readers would be excited for Prophet. Neither Simon Roy or Brandon Graham have done much, if any, work in the superhero genre, so I’m genuinely surprised with the amount of anticipation it has. I think people will love it, but it’s not like people were flocking to King City, y’know?

  17. @Chris Hero – It fits with established patterns on these things, I think.
    I’d like to check out King City, but I only heard the buzz once it was underway at Image, and a collection isn’t out yet.
    Prophet has a LOT more buzz than King City does for it’s launch, because it’s new, the creator has shown his chops and it’s part of a new line and has a unique hook ‘Extreme comics back and done by the last people you’d expect’. Also, it’s a colour genre book – that makes it much more palatable for a lot more people.
    This sort of thing regularly happens when indie guys jump over. If Dave Sims did a colour genre book it would sell a lot more than Glamourpuss does, for example.
    (Ps. I was googling about for stuff on the Kirby yesterday, and found an article on The Beat, and in the comments you giving stick to a guy who said Kirby got what he deserved. Good stuff!)

  18. @Ben Lipman

    Who, me, defender of Kirby? ^_^ I’m very big on the creators not getting a fair shake, although I’ve tried to tone it down. Some people think contracts are perfect devices, others don’t. It what makes the world turn.

    Anyway, I’m very much in favor of people reading Prophet or anything Graham or Roy have worked on. Your explanation makes a lot of sense – it’s color; popular genre; established creators; and intrigue.

    I haven’t bought a copy yet, but if you have, I hope you enjoy it.

    BTW – I normally hate notes like this, but if you can find it, the first volume of King City was a single book. It was an original work for Tokyopop. It’s a very fun, witty series.
