What a week for comics with some good releases, the opening of Iron Man and Free Comics Book Day on Saturday. I was able to pick up a lot of free books to check out and some other goodies on top of my normal purchases. All of the staff of the shop I go to were on hand and it was great to chat with them (I go to this store because the staff are normal folks that aren’t the stereotypical comic geek).
On a side note I was filmed a couple of months ago for something (still not sure what) about comic books and my collecting. I should have a copy of it next week and will likely post it up on here (as long as it’s not too embarrasing).
Avengers: The Initiative #12 – the fall out from the KIA story as a hearing is done and the first recruits graduate.
Black Summer #6 – what I thought was going to be an interesting political tale by Warren Ellis turns into a non-stop gun fight. I’m still hoping it comes around to it’s original potential.
DC Universe #0 – an interesting comic that acts a jumping on point for the various DC stories that are upcoming. Really, it’s a 50 cent teaser.
Ex Machina #36 – Mayor Hundred must decide if he wants to speak before the Republican convention to be held in NYC.
New Avengers #40 – a great background story of the Skrull infiltration. There’s some good teasers as to some of the super heroes that may or may not be Skrulls.
New Warriors #11 – the New Warriors head into the field for a fight.
The Order #10 – the end of the series. A good series that ended with a little let down. It’ll be interesting to see how the team is used in the future.
Thor: Ages of Thunder – an interesting look at the early years of Thor.
X-Men: Legacy # 210 – it’s Professor X vs. Exodus.
Fables: Storybook Love
The Invincible Iron Man: Extremis
Atomic Robo – read good reviews and looking forward to checking this series out.
Broken Trinity: Prelude – Top Cow’s new series
EC Comics Sampler – a great throw back to the golden era of comics.
Geekiga – indie series sampler.
Hellboy – love the first movie, and….
Hellboy: The Golden Army – hopefully it doesn’t spoil this summer’s movie.
Ignatz – preview of the upcoming indie series.
Maintenance – cover looked interesting.
Neotopia – also looked interesting.
Superman Allstar #1 – read some good reviews of the series and figured it’d be cool to check out.
Transformers Animated – saw the debut of the cartoon and wanted to vomit.
X-Men – free X-Men book, nuff said. I wonder if it shows off the new team when they reform.
Clix – a great game by Wizkids that I recommend you check out
Halo Action Clix – starter pack
2 nice Iron Man movie posters
