    Comics I'm getting this week:

    Tales of the Dragon Guard #3 (of 3) -- Really good Soleil title that has different characters in each issue with a different theme. You guys should give it a shot.
    Wolfskin: Hundredth Dream #2 (of 6) -- The first one was much better than I was expecting it to be.
    X-Force #27: Second Coming ch 9 -- Very happy with this story, but I know I won't continue reading X-Men once it's done.
    X-Men: Second Coming: Revelations: Blind Science #1 -- Way too many colons in this title. I'm picking up the other Second Coming tie-ins, but not really expecting much out of this one-shot.

    Comics I'm getting when they come out in trade:

    Northlanders #28 -- Such a good series. Everyone should be reading it.

    Second Northlanders. Last issue was beautifully surprising and Leandro Fernandez is amazing on art.

    I'm going to buy:


    ..there's more great stuff, of course, but I'm getting most of it in TPB's. Scalped, Northlanders, Unknown Soldier, maybe Choker.

    I'll buy some trades this week, of course. Don't know which ones yet, but I'd love to get my hands on some stuff from Jim Woodring, Chris Burnham and Dan Hipp. And the Eisner/Miller conversations book.
  3.  (8278.4)

    Really should get the latest Northlanders trade...

    I'm into Peter David's X-Factor, but am not reading Second Coming. Is there any point picking up the tie-in issues?

    Mercer -- Assuming that you're talking about the X-factor tie-ins: They have very little to do with Second Coming other than the fact that they're fighting one of the bad guys that's helping the rest of the bad guys. As far as I can tell they are very important to what's going on in the X-Factor story (ie: Monet and Strong Guy going after Monet's father). Without really knowing what's been happening with Madrox and crew lately I can't honestly say how important it is, but I spent most of my time reading it trying to guess at the current story-lines that are happening in that series.
    If you're talking about anything else involved in Second Coming: Unless you want to read all of Second Coming I'd just stick with the X-Factor titles and Madrox and crew don't appear anywhere in Second Coming as of yet (Chapter 8 of 14).

    Wait... I just wrote all that and then realized I wasn't sure which tie-in issues you were talking about... I'll add something at the beginning now.

    Sorry, I should have been clearer. I don't wanna get involved in Second Coming right now, just want to stick with the X-Factor story. I'm with you on Messiah CompleX being great, and I might get Second Coming in trade. But it's too much money and effort for me to follow in singles...

    Thanx for your help.
  5.  (8278.8)
    Not a problem, Mercer. So yes: Buy X-Factor. I'm sure you'll know what's going on without reading Second Coming.

    Amazing Spider-Man #632- sometimes I buy this begrudgingly, but I'm surprised at how much I've actually been enjoying the past few issues.
    Batman Return of Bruce Wayne #2
    Brave and the Bold #34- Straczyneski's message in each issue is pretty heavy-handed, but I've been enjoying his run nonetheless. Saiz's art has been awesome.
    Fantastic Four #579- some people I know have been pretty down on this book, but I'm finally interested in the Fantastic Four, and I think Hickman's run has been great.
    Green Lantern #54
    Green Lantern Corps #48- not sure about this one. I'm a little tired of GL, and feel like I'm reading Corps out of obligation.
    Justice League Generation Lost #2- liked the first issue way more than I thought I would. I'm going to try and stick with this one.
    Secret Avengers #1- this might be the only Avengers book I pick up monthly, depending on what's going on in New Avengers. I'm super sick of Bendis' Avengers stuff, so this new series should be pretty refreshing.
    Thor #610- I have no idea what to expect from this issue, but Thor has been consistently great over the past few months.
    X-Force #27- I'm kind of waiting for Second Coming to lose steam, but it hasn't so far, which is awesome.

    7 Psychopaths #1 -- BOOM! Studios' mini-series tend to fluctuate between pretty good (Codebreakers, so far) and great (Unthinkable, Dingo). 7 Psychopaths has interior art by Sean Phillips.

    Batman: Return of Bruce Wayne #2
    Secret Avengers #1
    Wednesday Comics HC (maybe)

    If I might suggest...

    Tomorrow, FRAGGLE ROCK #2 arrives in comic book stores from the good people at Archaia Studios and the Jim Henson Company, featuring a six page story by URSA MINORS artist Fernando Pinto and yours truly!

    Our story, 'The Convincing of Convincing John', offers a fun little musical origin to one of my favorite characters (and only one of two that Jim Henson himself played on the show). To celebrate the book's release, I'll be signing copies from 5:30-9pm at Jim Hanley's Universe on 33rd Street in NYC as part of their 25th Anniversary party, alongside creators like Fred (AMAZING SPIDERMAN) Van Lente, Molly (THE PUPPET MAKERS) Crabapple, Jim (HAWKEYE AND MOCKINGBIRD)McCann, Bob (BEG THE QUESTION) Fingerman and more! Jim Hanley's is located at 4 West 33rd Street, New York, NY 10001, right behind the Empire State Building. It promises to be a fun party, so if you're around, drop on by!

    Here's a preview of FRAGGLE ROCK #2, and here's an interview 'Nando and I did about our story!

    Also, if interested, here's a neat little YouTube clip of our man Convincing John doing his thing for the very first time back in 1983—preaching it up, Jim Henson style.

    Hope to see you there!
