    Green Lantern #41 (HC waiting as usual)
    New Avengers #53
    X-Men Legacy #224
    X-Force #15 (missed this one)

    And as usual, weeks to actually receive them. Not comic book related but I got my copy of CROOKED LITTLE VEIN today in the mail.

    Anyone reading Fall Of Cthulhu Nemesis? I bought the whole series but this one I was having too much doubts. Worth checking out the trade?

    Ouch, ouch, ouch:

    Final Crisis Aftermath Ink #1
    Gotham Gazette Batman Alive #1
    Justice League Of America Vol 2 #33
    Trinity #52 - and thus it ends, meaning one more step closer to Wednesday Comics
    Madame Xanadu #11
    Northlanders #17
    Enders Shadow Battle School #5 - grabbing for my brother
    Immortal Iron Fist #26
    Moon Knight Vol 5 #30
    Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk #6 - yyyyyyeeeeeeesssssssssss
    War Machine Vol 2 #6
    X-Force Vol 3 #15
    Mouse Guard Winter 1152 #6
    Ignition City #3 (Painted Cover)
    Muppet Robin Hood #1 - getting a flip through before I commit to it, The Show is enjoyable enough, but I don't know that I need a spinoff of it as well.
    Special Forces Vol 1 TP - Hah! On a whim I'd asked my LCS about this last week, thinking I missed its release, shows what I know.
    I Kill Giants TP - Was out of stock before I could pick it up, theoretically getting more in this week.

    Only X-FORCE and RUNAWAYS. Possibly GOTHAM GAZETTE.
    Thank gosh.

    i hope THE SHORT HALLOWEEN is good.
  3.  (5935.7)
    Northlanders #17
    Ignition City #3

    Although I get them next week due to me picking up my comics on Wednesday and them arriving at my local store on Thursday.
  4.  (5935.8)
    NORTHLANDERS
    CROSSED
    MOUSE GUARD (strangely enough I was sorting out my to-read pile and noticed that I only had 5 issues of the Winter 1152 series, thought I must have missed something and here it turns up this week)
    IGNITION CITY

    Awesome, a relatively small week for me. The comics gods have had mercy upon my bruised and bleeding finances. That said, I'm sure I'll find some random trade paperback or something to buy (most likely the new BATTLEFIELDS). JAN'S ATOMIC HEART looks interesting but I'm doubtful my local will have it.

    The HEAVY METAL DREDD and SHAKARA trades are hitting the states this week - between those and the ROOTS OF THE SWAMP THING trade, it's going to be a hefty week.
  5.  (5935.15)
    Crossed #5 and Ignition City #3. Can't wait to read both!

    Also, I have some store credit at my LCS so I'm gonna pick up the re - release of Transmet volumes 1 and 2. What an amazing week for comics!

    *Currently reading 'Scalped' volume 2.* =)

    This Is A Souvenir Songs Of Spearmint & Shirley Lee features a four-page story called "It Won't be Long Now" that was written/lettered by Richard Starkings and drawn/colored by Kelly Tindall, who just so happens to be me. (I'm credited as 'Rob Steen', who colored Strange Embrace and is, I assure you, not me.)

    Well, Mister Johnston and Miss Tindall have already mentioned my book this week, but no harm in repeating...

    THIS IS A SOUVENIR - THE SONGS OF SPEARMINT AND SHIRLEY LEE is finally out today, and has within it a smorgasborg of cool creators, all of which took a song from the Spearmint back catalogue and game an 8-or so page 'take' on it.

    I did the song 'A BENCH IN A PARK', which I first heard in the 90's, live on stage at a gig somewhere near Bexleyheath, South East London - so you can see that this was a bit of a legacy story for me. And I was lucky enough to have the talented and Eisner nominated genius Kevin Colden on art and letters.

    And as Rich has already shown a page of his, so I'll show a page of mine...

    Page of the story
