    I missed the absence of the weekly comics thread last week and now this week, too, so I had the brilliant idea of starting it myself.

    Here's the list of everything this week, straight from the depths of Hell itself.

    Anywho, this is what I'll be picking up after work this eve:

    AUTHORITY PRIME #5
    BATMAN #674
    CAPTAIN AMERICA #35
    CRIMINAL 2 #1
    DAREDEVIL #105
    GRAVEL #1
    KICK ASS #1
    ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #119
    X-MEN LEGACY #208

    I think I'm most excited for the return of Criminal. It's going to be glorious.

    I'm debating over the Thunderbolts one-shot. I haven't been all that impressed with the other Thunderbolts one-shots, though I actually kinda dig the Penance mini.

    I've been begrudgingly getting Authority Prime. I wasn't impressed with the first three issues and was just about to drop it, but issue four pushed me to continue with the series (ends at issue six).

    I had been picking up David's She-Hulk, but decided last issue to drop it. I'll still keep an eye and ear out, in case PAD finds a groove.

    I'm tempted to start picking up Fables this week, being that I finally went back and have read the trades, but I think I'll just keep reading the book collected. I really appreciate it, but it doesn't grab me enough to warrant a purchase.

    But enough of my babble, what's everyone else looking forward to?

    CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL CRIMINAL

    also kick ass #1. im very curious about how this will be- i think there wont be a middle ground, it will either be superbly done, or too much of a tongue in cheek, faked youth joke. i hope its good though!

    I've seen several reviews for Kick Ass #1 so far (Comics Bulletin & IGN), and everyone seems to either like or love it. I was worried, too, that it would be bad, but my worries have since been squashed.

    But yeah, moment I get home, I'm busting open Criminal.

    Criminal, Wormwood and Rex Libris for me.

    Is anyone else on here reading Rex Libris? This is a damn fine book. Chock full of weird, stuffed with information and wit and just plain smart-assery. Beautifully designed too.

    Ah, and the Andy Diggle trade of Hellblazer. That's some proper scary John Constantine there.

    She Hulk is finally making some sense... though Im mildly curious how the hanging with a skrull thing is going to work out for her.

    Doctor Who is very pricey over in Australia. Is it the size of a regular comic, or a TP?

    Picked up some non-pull singles today (I'll get the usual pulls at the weekend).

    RASL, Batman and Kick Ass. All of which were excellent but I'm probably most intrigued by RASL given the raft of ideas and nods to other stuff in it.

    All Star Batman & Robin The Boy Wonder for the win!

    Rube.

    Thor was great as usual,love the interaction between the gods and the town folk

    JSA is a classic superhero team at its finest and in all its gaudy colors,one of the few DC books worth reading

    Proof from Image is a great monster book more people need to read,almost like x-files but more monster centric

    Daredevil has really hit a snag with the past 6 issues,Milla has become annoying as hell and Fear's motivations were as clear as a dirty window,most likely dropping this

    Cap continues is glory streak with some Guice goodness

    Superpowers was a great start,Golden Age heroes rock

    Store I am now going to didn't get Wormwood for some reason, so I had to go to The Store That Won't Carry Avatar. While there they were actually having a discussion about whether or not they'd be getting Anna Mercury. One guy said, I shit you not, "Well it's Ellis, but it's also Avatar."

    What is wrong with these people?
