    Yup. Most non retail/non restaurant business closed Monday, and UPS and FedEx down for the day.

    You would be correct, Mr. Ellis.

    Sweet! Finally wrapping up the Astonishing X-Men arc that has been dangling like a Florida chad these past few months

    Looking forward to Final Crisis' beginning and All Star Superman's finale. I'll also be picking up Action comics, sadly a fill-in while Gary Frank starts the major Braniac arc, but I am glad to see he is sticking around. I think the book just feels better with him attached then one of the Kuberts previously. I also believe the Legion arc was on-time. Sadly can't believe FC is here, Legion of 3 Worlds, Superman Beyond, and Rogue's Revenge look ace, will have to pick those up. If DC's website is to be believed I also have GL 31 and Batman 677.

    On the Marvel side of things, Ultimate Spider-Man and Giant Sized Astonishing. Gonna wait on 1985

    Decent week for me.

    Issues-
    Batman #677
    Final Crisis #1
    Giant Size Astonishing X-Men #1 - Maaaaybe, deciding if I want to see the finale that leads into Ellis' run or not.
    Huntress Year One #2
    Immortal Iron Fist #15
    Northlanders #6 - Despite the ordering, this guy'll definitely be on top of the stack.
    X-Force #4 - Ahh, character loyalty :|

    Trades/GNs-
    Appleseed 2nd Ed V2
    Manhunter V2 - getting caught up before the relaunch, accidentally skipped ahead and got V3 last week :|

    Morrison Week!

    Batman, Final Crisis, and All-Star Superman...sweet! Dan Dare, Action Comics, 1985, and Judenhass make this even better. I should check out Northlanders though.

    Waiting for me in my box tomorrow:
    ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN #6
    BATMAN #677
    GIANT SIZE ASTONISHING X-MEN #1
    IMMORTAL IRON FIST #15
    NORTHLANDERS #6
    SWORD #8
    ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #122
    UNCANNY X-MEN #498

    Debating, but will probably not pick up:
    DAREDEVIL #107
    FINAL CRISIS #1
    MARVEL 1985 #1

    I'm doing some heavy spring cleaning and I think DAREDEVIL will be dropping. I haven't been buying into SECRET INVASION, and I don't feel like getting FINAL CRISIS either, yet Morrison (and JG Jones) definitely has some leverage with me. And I think I'll just wait and see if MARVEL 1985 is any good by the time it finishes, then buy the tpb. And let me tell you, that STARMAN OMNIBUS HC VOL 01 will be glaring at me the whole time I'm in my LCS tomorrow. I must strengthen my willpower today.

    Does the fact comics are realeased on Thursday in the states mean that we won't get them in the UK until later than Friday? I'd already put it down to Friday due to the Bank Holiday

    @mojojoseph

    I don't know - best bet is to call your LCS and see what they say.

    Daredevil #107 because I have an emotional bond with Matt Murdock.
    Immortal Iron Fist #15 because I like kung fu fighting.
    Too many X-Titles for 1 week because I'm obsessive.
    Batman #677 because I identify with crazy people that have pointy ears.
    Northlanders #6 because Brian Wood is awesome.
    Fables #73 because I have fantasies about Cinderella.
    Marvel 1985 because it's Millar.
    New Avengers #41 because I might be a Skrull?
    Thor #9 because I'm still waiting for Thor to kick *. The one-shot ( to be continued in another 1 shot ) was nice.

    @ mojojoseph - normally the comics hit the UK shops on Thursdays, the BH means it'll be Friday this week.... if any Comic Shop Manager tells you otherwise they're fibbing.....

    /me sticks neck out there...
