    ... are those new issues of Doktor Sleepless and Gravel?
  6.  (3411.8)
    My two offerings this week:

    1) As Warren's already highlighted:

    newuniversal: conqueror

    NEWUNIVERSAL: CONQUEROR ONE-SHOT
    Written by SIMON SPURRIER
    Penciled by ERIC NGUYEN
    Cover by Brandon Peterson
    Five thousand years ago, civilization was held in the mighty hand of the slayer called STARR, who defended his kingdom from all invaders. But what were these invaders? Simple monsters…or something more? In this, the second one-shot story exploring the history and mythos of the NEWUNIVERSAL world, writer SIMON SPURRIER—hand-picked by NEWUNIVERSAL’s WARREN ELLIS—and visionary artist ERIC NGUYEN bring to life a history like you’ve never imagined!
    48 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

    2) And:

    Ghost Rider Annual 2: Mercy

    GHOST RIDER ANNUAL #2: MERCY
    Written by SIMON SPURRIER
    Pencils by MARK ROBINSON
    Cover by Mark Texeira
    Mercy, Idaho: A small town in the hills with more than its fair share of secrets. A winged-terror that haunts the woods; an irresistible pull on the desperate and the suicidal; and now a stranger on a low-slung chopper, with fire in his eyes. For Johnny Blaze – searching for a way to wage war against heaven itself – the frozen forests of Mercy might just provide a path through the Pearly Gates…
    48 PGS./Parental Advisory…$3.99
  7.  (3411.9)
    @Furburton - Yep, most recent issues of both.
  8.  (3411.10)
    I would highlight also:
    Daredevil by Brubaker (and Rucka) and Michael Lark
    Immortal Iron Fist by Swierczynski and Foreman (just because the previous run rocked and this one could be good too, also Swierczy is potentially cool)
    X-Men Legacy by Carey and Eaton (carey is doing an interesting work here, it looks like the captain america of the mutants - the brubaker one I mean).

    I read good things about the boy who made silence, but didn't find it yet on the web.

    PS; Thunderbolts with Gage imitating Ellis was a bit irratating for me the last ish, also now they are in full-tie-in mode, and I'm really fed up with skrulls if jason aaron is not writing them.

    PPS: And yes, All star superman is the best current morrison work. By far. Way above batman RIP and Final Crisis. And quietly as a penciler always deliver.

    I wish to withdraw my long-standing cussing of Carey's X-Men: Legacy arc. I just re-read the whole lot so far, and it works a lot better in trade-style than in singles. Even the gimmick of using two artists per issue really worked for me the second time round. I find myself egaerly looking forward to 215. Carey's use of / knowledge of X-history is pretty astounding.

    DOKTOR SLEEPLESS #8
    KICK ASS #4
    NORTHLANDERS #9
    ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #125

    I cried when I saw that PAX ROMANA #3 was coming out this week, and I cried again when Hickman said we have to wait three more weeks for it.

    Jack of Fables

    Northlanders #9

    Anna Mercury #3 - assuming my LCS finally gets it in.

    @Danny - call ahead before you make the trek up to Denver. Last week my LCS (All in A Dream) did not get Anna Mercury in, so maybe it's a Colorado thing right now?
  9.  (3411.14)
    BTW to all interested, Northlander #9 it's practically a new number one, since it starts a new arc that should not be connected with the previous one if not very tenuously (sort of like Brubaker's crimnal)
  10.  (3411.15)
    Well, comps for Pax#3 just showed up at my door, so I guess it is in stores this week.

    One thing we can be sure of - I've got no fucking clue what's going on and should be ignored when posting in the "Comics on Release" threads...

    I suck.

    @ScottS - I think I'm just going to stop by a few later today before seeing The Octopus Project and just order online whatever my store misses tomorrow, thanks for the heads up though.

    8 or 9 nine issues this week and all seem to be ones I am actually excited about. Plus if Pax #3 comes out this week and I can find a copy of Transhuman today this will be perfect.

    Hickman: My friend Alissa's been hounding the shop about Red Mass For Mars #2 for far too long. I'll let her know when it's popping up. Haven't seen Pax Romana in -- I'll make them pull copies of the first three if they didn't order any for this week.

    ALSO: THE GREAT OUTDOOR MOTHERFUCKING FIGHT. BUY THIS, LET CHRIS ONSTAD BATHE IN YOUR DIRTY DOLLAR BILLS.

    I'm buying the latest Spider-Man because I love John Romita Jr. that much. I can't stick with the thrice-weekly regularly as long as Bob Gale keeps writing shitty stories. I'm starting to lose my taste for superheroes that I re-acquired a couple years ago, and he's one of the many creators I can blame for that.

    That, and I can only read so many stories that require at least a certain number of pages of things being hit very hard.

    Hmm... I think I might have to pass on getting a trade this week:

    DCU Last Will And Testament #1
    Final Crisis Rouge's Revenge #2
    Final Crisis Superman Beyond #1
    Trinity #13
    DMZ #34
    Madame Xanadu #3
    Northlanders #9
    Pax Romana #3 if it exists, but I'm still waiting on...
    Transhuman #3, which theoretically comes in to my shop finally
    Vix #2
    Immortal Iron Fist #18
    New Exiles #10
    newuniversal Conqueror
    maybe Runaways 3 #1, still deciding how I want to buy the series as a whole
    X-Force #6
    Doktor Sleepless #8

    Ellis, 2x Wood, 2x Hickman- sounds like a good week to me!
