    looks as if I'll have to take out like $150 just in comics this week I guess. Since I know I have back issues to go grab.

    Anna Mercury #3
    Gravel: Never a Dull Day
    already have my No Heroes shirt.

    Me too, but every time I don't grab two of a t-shirt I like I always regret it. I know one will be worn away, eventually.

    It's slowed down a bit, but I still love Bru's Captain America.

    Very light week for me.
    most likely check out some TP i've been putting off of New avengers, and Lucifer.

    Almost nothing for this week:

    CAPTAIN AMERICA #41 (Who doesn't love Brubaker?)
    ANNA MERCURY #3 (Are there multiple covers to Anna stuff this week? If so, the store'll put them in my order, and I'll buy them, not because I need different covers, but my disposable cash usually ends up being spent on booze, so better it goes to the nice people at Avatar.)
    POUNDED TP (O/A) (I missed this the first time [and second] time it was around, so I'm definitely picking up the new trade.)
  4.  (3356.12)
    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Small week, but some good looking books.

    Tradewaiting these - the odds are very good they'll all be available in paperback at some point:

    FEAR AGENT #23
    AIR #1 (already listed on amazon - Air Vol. 1: Letters from Lost Countries - March 10, 2009)
    SCALPED #20 (already listed on amazon - Scalped Vol. 4: The Gravel in Your Gut - April 7, 2009)
    MADMAN ATOMIC COMICS #10
    ANNA MERCURY #3

    If it seems like 2009 is a really long way away, it really isn't. For example, Air - not sure whether vol. 1 is 1-5 or 1-6, but assuming the former, the final part won't even arrive until December, and at that point, it's only a 3 month wait until March.

    On the other hand, buying these tomorrow, assuming they arrive in the store:

    Amazing Remarkable Monsieur Leotard (all-new Eddie Campbell!)
    MySpace Dark Horse Presents Vol 1 (an attractive lineup, featuring the Eisner-winning Graphic Novella Sugarshock! by Joss Whedon & Fabio Moon)
    Showcase Presents The Atom Vol 2 (all-old Gil Kane!)
    Sandman Presents Dead Boy Detectives (Ed Brubaker & Bryan Talbot)

    I seem to be looking at

    Birds of Prey #121
    Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds #1
    Flash #243
    Justice League of America #24
    Trinity #12
    Anna Mercury #3

    I realize Final Crisis seems like a letdown so far, but Legion is written by Geoff Johns. I like his work.
    Flash and JLA are close to the chopping block.

    And I need no other reason than Warren Ellis to pick up Anna Mercury.

    @agitpunkt - You sacrifice booze for us? Wow. That is the definition of a very cool fan. Thanks man. We try to at least do very cool varaint covers to make them worth your while.
  6.  (3356.15)
    while i champion yr books to as many non fans as possible (so much that i think i annoy people, haha) i will never sacrifice booze for you.

    well, except maybe doktor sleepless.

    Might grab Legion of Three Worlds if there's an extra copy at the shop. I love George's artwork, and he's such a nice guy. I could give a rat's bum about the Legion of Super Heroes, but it's George. I think this week marks the end of my Iron Fist collecting, as well. New creative team isn't firing on all cylinders for me.

    Not sure what to make of Air. Will require a brief perusal in the store.


    Anna Mercury, natch.


    And a No Heroes t-shirt.

    @joe.distort - Thanks pal, we need folks like you out there championing our books.

    @thom_wong - A man of good taste. I type this wearing my own No Hero shirt...

    @Ferburton
    won't the other? o.o

    Nope. I'll put this one away and wear the one I got at Chicago until it's beyond hope. Then, and only then will the back up t-shirt be brought out to be worn.
