    The new list is up, so what will you be getting your paws on this week?

    A few of mine are:

    100 BULLETS #90
    DMZ #30
    IN THE SMALL HC
    DARKNESS #3
    POWERS ANNUAL 2008
    SWORD #7


    And a little bit of merchandise: GRAVEL SHOT GLASS
  2.  (1806.2)
    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Faker TP $14.99
    It'll be interesting to see what Mike Carey & Jock do in this Graphic Novel. Hopefully it'll sell - the serial's numbers were remarkably dismal, even for Veritgo. Glad to see Vertigo isn't always using serial sales as a basis for determining what to publish in paperback.

    Strange Girl Vol 4 Golden Lights TP $13.99
    Rick Remender concludes his creator owned series.

    Stupid Comics Phoenix Edition GN $9.99
    Who doesn't like Jim Mahfood?

    These all look good, but they'll almost certainly all be released in paperbacks eventually, so better to wait. But it's good stuff that deserves a shout out:
    FEAR AGENT #20 HATCHET JOB (PT 4 OF 5) $2.99
    GRENDEL BEHOLD THE DEVIL #6 (OF 8) $3.50
    REX MUNDI DH ED #11 $2.99
    100 BULLETS #90 (MR) $2.99
    BAT LASH #5 (OF 6) $2.99
    DMZ #30 (MR) $2.99
    POWERS ANNUAL 2008 (MR) $4.95
    WAR IS HELL FIRST FLIGHT PHANTOM EAGLE MAX #2 (OF 5) (MR) $3.99

    Hmm, a rather light week for me:

    DMZ #30
    STRANGE GIRL TP VOL 04 GOLDEN LIGHTS (d'oh, looks like I need 2-3 while I'm at it, well worth the double dipping after picking up the individual issues)

    Looks like it'll probably be 2 additional trades this week from my monster backlog, maybe more Exiles and starting Seven Soldiers? Still trying to track down Detective #642 as well, seems to be sold out at my usual haunts :|

    That's all for me this week. Though I should probably be reading Bad Planet...

    Thanks for pointing out Lone Ranger #11 for the Paul Pope art! I wouldn't have noticed/known otherwise. Do you know if it's only a couple pages, or a good amount of the book? I'll definitely flip through it at the LCS tonight, and maybe purchase.

    Anyone reading this thread purchase FAKER as monthlies? If so, did it end well and worth a purchase?

    Here's my shopping list for tonight:
    CAPTAIN AMERICA #37
    GRENDEL BEHOLD THE DEVIL #6
    SWORD #7
    WAR IS HELL FIRST FLIGHT PHANTOM EAGLE MAX #2
    X-FACTOR #30

    I'm on the fence with X-MEN DIVIDED WE STAND #1. I'd only be buying it for Fraction & McKelvie's story. Hmmm, we'll see.

    @madmatt213 - yeah, it was nicely solid, as far as I was concerned. Though, in fairness, I was always buying it much more for Jock's art, which was bloody brilliant, as usual.

    @madmatt213

    i think it's an eleven page sequence. tonto is telling some kind of story about a wolf. and paul pope does that bit.
    from his blog a while back. i don't normally read lone ranger, but i'm a big paul pope fan.

    -geoff.

    ok, picked up secret invasion #1 and got back into super hero's. it was about what i expected.
    picked up dead space #2. am very happy with this outing. johnson/templesmith do a good job with this.
    picked up willow creek #1 from zenescope. very well done. i really liked the pacing in this and the whole creepy, edgy feeling think going on in this small town.
    also, as a result of a recommendation in the forum, i purchased aqua leung (smith/maybury) have not read it yet but looks entertaining.

    That's a coincidence. Today I was going through Pope's Flickr and found the Wolf drawing, which I then saved as my wallpaper. I then went to the comic store, flipped through Lone Ranger, and sure enough recognized a color splash page of that very drawing. I may go back later in the week and buy it (if reviews say the script is good), since I didn't realize half the book was Pope.

    Yes. Enough so, I'm picking up the trade.

    Well, there's a new Walking Dead shirt.


    I'd buy 100 Bullets if I were caught up, same with DMZ.


    Yup.

    DMZ #30
    CAPTAIN AMERICA #37
    POWERS ANNUAL 2008 - IS this new stuff? It'll probably be in my box anyway

    And possibly the Faker trade will give it a flick on the shelf first. Also the great wallet gods will ultimately decide wedding this weekend payday next week
    Ah the end of the month is so fun.
