Weekly Purchases

I’m still catching up on some back issues but here’s the list for new books this week.  We’ll make sure to be caught up in the reading and move forward with some original articles.

Monthly Comics

Black Panther #4 – I have to say I’ve been wavering on this series, but this issue picks up a little.  It gets a stay of being dropped.

Captain Britain and MI13 #13 – Dracula begins his assault on Britain as the heroes make their stand.

Dark Reign: Hawkeye #2 – Bullseye/Hawkeye’s “heroic” attempts continue.

Dark Reign: Young Avengers #1 – A new team of young super heroes band together, just a little bit grayer than usual in that whole justice thing.

Deadpool: Suicide Kings #2 – Still not sure why this couldn’t be an arc of the regular series (other than to suck more money out of us).  Decent read, nice mix of humor and action like the regular series.

Fables #4 – Part 4 of the great Fable crossover.  Jack heads to the farm and is reunited with the crew.

Secret Six #9 – Catman, Bane, and Ragdoll head to Gotham to help fill the void left by the lack of Batman.  What really defines a hero, and who says what’s heroics?

Secret Warriors #4 – The stage is set for all hell to break loose as Fury reaches out to some old friends, and the Secret Warriors recruit a new member.

Thor: Tales of Asgard – Reprinting Jack Kirby and Stan Lee Journey Into Mystery issues.

the Umbrella Academy #6 – The team must decide the fate of the Earth, do they allow the assassination to take place or do they stop it?

The Unwritten #1 – What if Harry Potter spawned a religion based possibly around a boy hired as marketing?  It’s DC’s latest Vertigo series which holds a lot of promise.  For $1 for the first issue, this is highly recommended.

The Walking Dead #61 – Just when you thought writer Robert Kirkman couldn’t shock you anymore, there’s murder afoot, but who’s the killer/s?

Wolverine #73 – Not a bad transition story to issue #75.  I kind of enjoyed the “how does he do all the things he does” part at the beginning.

the Wonderful Wizard of Oz #6 – This and Iron Fist, I need to catch up.  But I hear wonderful things.

X-Factor #43 – Writer Peter David doesn’t want spoilers and I’m not going to give any, but you really should be reading this series.

Graphic Novels

Batman: The Resurrection of Ra’s Al Ghul – I’ll admit I’ve been underwhelmed by most of Grant Morrison’s writing.  At the same time, I want to see what all of the hooplas been about.
