    Comics I'm getting this week:
    Dark Horse Presents #9 -- Brian Woods second installment of the prelude to The Massive
    Mondo #1 (of 3) -- Ted McKeever!

    Comics I'll get in trade:
    Mondo #1 (of 3) -- Sad? Yeah, a little. But I love the way the McKeever Shadowline trades look. Buying the singles just in case though...
    Rasl #13 -- Because Jeff Smith is amazing. It's too bad that this series comes out so slowly...
  3.  (10508.3)
    PS: Trade that I am not buying this week:
    X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse Omnibus Hardcover

    Let's take a look at the list of comics in this thing... "Collecting UNCANNY X-MEN (1963) #320-321, X-MEN (1991) #40-41, CABLE (1993) #20, X-MEN ALPHA, AMAZING X-MEN #1-4, ASTONISHING X-MEN (1995) #1-4, FACTOR X #1-4, GAMBIT & THE X-TERNALS #1-4, GENERATION NEXT #1-4, WEAPON X (1995) #1-4, X-CALIBRE #1-4, X-MAN #1-4, X-MEN OMEGA, AGE OF APOCALYPSE: THE CHOSEN and X-MEN ASHCAN #2"

    Notice that X-Men Chronicles and X-Universe aren't included. Now, it's been a good long while since I've read AoA... but I seem to remember X-Universe having some things that actually mattered and X-Men Chronicles adding some really good things to the story...
    It also seems weird that they would show Legion Quest (which makes a lot of sense) but not include X-Men Prime...

    For a complete collection it seems to be missing a couple of things that they really should have added in making it fall just that little bit short. Which is too bad, because I would gladly have paid the money to get the full set of Age of Apocalypse.

    What are your thoughts? Can anyone tell me why these few things aren't included? I would honestly like someone to convince me that it's okay with these things missing because I really would like to think that this was worth buying.

    Oh, and I just realized that even the Legion Quest story-arc isn't complete as it's missing X-Factor #108-109...
    Should've left Legion Quest out, put in the missing 4 AoA issues... That would have made this collection absolutely amazing.

    Batman is probably my favorite big 2 book right now. Also will be getting incorruptible.

    Temporarily confused as I just picked up 2000AD today and it says, Prog 1770. I'm guessing this is a transatlantic UK/US release thing, just a bit surprised by it.

    AQUAMAN #6 - Actually rather liking this new run. I never really cared for the character before, but decided to give it a chance with the re-launch.
    FLASH #6 - As with Aquaman - I'm not a huge fan, but the character piqued my interest in Final Crisis & Blackest Night. The potential is there, but I won't be decided until this arc is finished

    Finding it weird that I'm looking more at DC now than Marvel. To be honest, Marvel lost me around the, SIEGE era. Everything since SECRET INVASION now feels like it has to be linked in with at least 5 other books and, honestly, who has that kind of money at the moment? If you like X-men and you like The Avengers, like I do, keeping up with everything is a massive ball-ache and not really worth it any more.

    Lil Depressed Boy! Great fun comic. Everyone should flip through it.

    Dark Horse Presents

    My local LCS supply books to the central Library in Nottingham so I may well end up having a look in there to see what they've got on the shelves (that way I get to support both the library service, and my LCS). For anyone else on a limited budget for comics this is a great way to be able to read stuff you wouldn't normally be able to afford.
