Four of the second-wave new 52 books in one week?
So now week 1 we have batwing, stormwatch, animal man, swamp thing, dial h, earth 2, world's finest, and GI combat. this is gonna be expensive if the new books turn out good. Best week of the month confirmed.

It's kind of maddening, but 4 of the canceled New 52 titles those are replacing were from week 1, so if you were the sap that was reading Hawk and Dove, Static Shock, OMAC (RIP) and Men of War, you're really still picking up the same number of books.

Ah. i see. Somehow I just assumed the cancellations were more evenly distributed.


God, I know that GI Combat will probably suck, but I can't help myself because dinosaurs. And of course I have to buy Batman Inc. At least it's impossible for ravagers to tempt me.

Transferred from the April Thread (since it's already May somewhere when I posted).


Let's see what did I buy off of Comixology today.

GI Joe A Real American Hero 160 and 161 (I have a lot of catching up).
S.H.I.E.L.D 1-3
Batman #1 -I'll admit cursoriness is making me check out these relaunches.
Captain America 1-3 (99 cent sale)
Punisher 7 (though 2.99 for 22 pages can go fuck itself). Screw it maybe some other time.
The Activity 1
Ghost Projekt 2Eh, I'll get it in a few days

I have to admit I've never really been into Superheroes in the traditional sense, but ah fuck it I'll give a few a try. I'd buy The Boys, but I'm not reading that on the train I love Garth Ennis, but lord knows what will pop up. lol

That said I have no clue what the hell is what because there seem to be 400 different variations, it's confusing (well on the Marvel side at least).
.....

Okay I was shitting on Marvel, but after reading the Chronology backlist they publish for free. It's not as bad.

Liked the new 52 Batman #1, though the way people are drawn...eh not in love. Writting is good so far. Like the overlap of the speech and opening fight.

But ya, The Boys gets pretty graphic. And the shit is really coming down now.

It depends which train I catch in the morning (later=less) or when I leave later on, but yeah it can happen. At least it's better than the NYC subway or PATH train. People don't even try and hide it. Really annoying. I mean they deserve what they get, but I don't want to deal with someone bitching or being snide.

Yeah, I mean you can never tell what's about to happen. Titties or a head on a pike might pop up without warning.

Current run is only twelve issues in, hardcover collects the first six. EXTREMELY easy to get into and highly enjoyable.

Oh cool I can do that. I man if someone can help with formatting (pub logo) and (maybe) covers, I don't mind doing the rest. Granted it will be slight biased to my own tastes lol

But yeah I'd be happy to do it. Especially IDW Larry Hama's GI JOE always deserves more love!

Most shops will give you a couple free ones and then more if you spend some money at the shop. It's all determined by the store but you probably won't be able to walk in and just request one of everything without spending any cash.

If you're going to post a bunch of books/pubs at once I might recommend using the smaller cover versions (just so you don't fill up the whole page when you post) but otherwise it looks fine to me. :)
