Catching Up

It's been a while, so I thought I'd play catch up.

What I'm Buying (my current pull list):

Astonishing X-Men - total fanboy bliss
Thunderbolts - gritty
Uncanny X-Men - best writing on this book in over 10 years
Wolverine - total crap, but I keep buying it
X-Men - keeping the run intact

Marvel Mini Series
Civil War - the last issue is out next week, thank god
Civil War Front Line - best part of the "civil war"
Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk - the third issue will never come out
Ultimates 2 – been waiting on the last issue for about 8,745,298 years

52 – this series is kicking ass
100 Bullets – the best, as always
All Star Superman – the wait between issues is painful, but worth it
DMZ – super good
Jonah Hex – done with the "one and done" format, but still great
Justice – three more issues to go, then I'll read it
Spirit – fun, pretty.......pretty fun

Battlestar Galactica (current) - nice job working within the 'new universe'
Conan - over three years of great art and consistent writing
Deadworld – who knows when the next one will arrive, but the first six were great
Fear Agent – the move to Darkhorse is holding this one bad
Fell – the TPB is coming, jump on board
Red Sonja – it's the best seller for Dynamite for a reason
Walking Dead – if you're not reading this you're retarded

I've completed some collecting goals and taken some steps to close in on some others

I finaly picked up a nice Walking Dead #2. #1 is easy to find, #2 is not so easy.

Picked up 100 Bullets #20-29, now I only need #1-19 to complet my set.

Got a big pile of Marvel Comics presents, numbered after the Smith run I picked up last year. Fun reading at bargain prices.

Classic Marvel Figurines kick ass. Your LCS can order these through Diamond. Needless to say, I'm picking up all of the X-Men and realited villans.

I picked up this CGC SS Fear Agent #1 RRP. Super cool.

That's all that I can think of at this point. I'll post more as/if it comes to mind.

Uncanny Dave Cockrum...A Tribute

Read about it.


Buy it.

I picked up the $125 version. The $165 version was sold out or I would have bought it. These are very limited so you better jump on board now.

The Way It Is

It's been a while, but I'm back.

Over the last month or so my pull list has changed quite a lot. I'm officially no longer a "Marvel Zombie". I do however enjoy several Zombie comics. Here's my pull list as it stands this week, with comments:


Astonishing X-Men - Still a lot of fun. Thanks Joss.
Spider-Man Reign - I have no idea why I'm buying this book.
Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk - At this rate it'll take four years for all six issues to be published.
Ultimates 2 - The final issue could be out next month.......
Uncanny X-Men - Thanks for the best story in ten years Mr. Brubaker
Wolverine - It's ok.
X-Men - I have no excuse.


52 - The best book where nothing ever happens.
100 Bullets - If I could only read one book a month this would be it.
All Star Superman - I was never a fan of Superman........until now.
Boys - One sick book.......and I love it.
DMZ - It started slow, but is now one of the best books I read every month.
Jonah Hex - The best western I've ever read.
Justice - Great covrs, but I'm waiting to read it in one sitting.
Other Side, The - Outstanding five issue mini that no one reads.
Spirit - Two words. Darwin Cook

"Other" Publishers

Battlestar Galactica - If you dig the TV series then you have to read this.
Conan - Month to month one of the prettiest books to look at.
Deadworld - Great story, ok art, shitty publishing schedule.
Fear Agent - A fucking riot.
Red Sonja - I think I'll be dropping it soon.
Walking Dead - If you don't read this book then you're retarded.

CGC Gets A Face Lift

No Time

I've had no time these past couple of weeks. Between being sick, Christmas and New Years, I've managed to neglect plenty of things, this blog included. Look for me to get active here again in the New Year.

Here's hoping yours is happy and safe.

Tell Marvel What You Want

It's time for the 5th Annual Masterworks Survey. I've filled this out for the last four years and Marvel actually uses the info collected in these surveys. It's one of the few things that Marvel seems to be interested in listening to regarding what readers want.
