SEP050006 PREVIEWS ADULT VOL XV #11 PI
SEP050001 PREVIEWS VOL XV #11 PI
SEP050004 PREVIEWS VOL XV CONSUMER ORDER FORM #11 PI
I’ve yet to do a solicits rundown. Maybe I’ll take home copies of all of this and do a massive post sometime soon.
I said maybe, so don’t get all excited.
AUG050026 BPRD THE BLACK FLAME #3 (OF 6) $2.99
More of that Guy Davis goodness with the gang. I just read that Honor Among Punks collection of Baker Street and man, watching him grow as an artist in such a brief amount of time is just plain startling.
JUL050049 LITTLE LULU VOL 6 LETTERS TO SANTA TP $9.95
As a bad person who smothers kittens and steals from the poor, I’ve not purchased any of these yet. Anyone have a recommended volume?
AUG050263 AUTHORITY THE MAGNIFICIENT KEVIN #3 (OF 5) (MR) $2.99
I hope we get more musical numbers in this issue, and more from that villain who says something quite obscene as he dispenses pastries of death.
AUG050220 JLA CLASSIFIED #13 $2.50
Now that Ellis has done all of his “gathering of the heroes” and “cool explanation for the bad guy” stuff, I guess it’s time for quite a lot of crashing and thumping. Excellent.
AUG050279 LOVELESS #1 (MR) $2.99
As a newish fan of Deadwood, I’ve got to say that the preview of this showed that this will be a darn nice placeholder until that second season hits DVD.
AUG050232 SOLO #7 $4.99
That cover price? Worth it for the Mister Miracle story alone. Oh, how I loved that little two-pager.
AUG051917 DEFENDERS #4 (OF 5) $2.99
OK, less of the Dormammu/Umar semi-incestual stuff and more of the Hulk Smashing and Strange Stranging stuff, please. Thanks!
AUG051891 ULTIMATE SECRET #4 (OF 4) $2.99
No, already? It’s only been a few weeks! Golly. (Man, Tom Raney is such a bad, bad experience after McNiven, isn’t he?)
SEP052850 HELLO GN (MR) $10.00
Not to be confused with Max “Handsome” Estes’s very own Hello, Again, which can get a good deal on if you visit the Top Shelf Fall Sale page before tomorrow! (This has been an ad for Top Shelf Productions, one of the very favorite indie publishers here at BeaucoupKevin Towers. Do you want your company to be mentioned in an appealing light? Contact our sales staff – email@example.com to find out more!)
AUG053104 HERO AT LARGE #2 $2.99
Hey, I wondered when this was coming out, as I thought the first issue was pretty darn good.
AUG052653 PARIS #1 (OF 4) $2.95
This is the new series that Andi Watson is writing, featuring funky, chunky art by Simon Gane. It looks entirely up my alley, even if it’s kind of a chick drama thing. You can check out a preview here. (Another thing that looks entirely up my alley despite heavy chickitude is the new film Nine Lives, telling nine loosely-connected stories of women going through shit.
AUG053126 SAMURAI CHAMPLOO VOL 1 GN $9.99
This is an excellent anime, and I’m curious to see how the manga works without the soundtrack that makes the moving-pictures version so captivating for long stretches. The Cowboy Bebop comics are pretty OK, but without Yoko Kanno’s soundtrack, some of the pacing and funkitudinal bits are missing or truncated weirdly.
AUG052620 SUNSET CITY GN $9.95
Rob Osborne is a hero among men and he will make you care about the people inhabiting a retirement community where there’s something amiss.
AUG053230 SUPER F$$$$$S #2 (MR) $5.00
FUCK YEAH! Yes, it’s foulmouthed, obnoxious, and drawn by love ‘em or hate ‘em James The Kochalka so the audience is narrow, but I don’t care. I love it, love it, love it.
SEP052835 ZOMBIE TALES #1 (O/A) $6.99
JUN052859 ZOMBIE TALES OBLIVION #1 $6.99
Ross Richie says “Happy Halloween, bitches!”
Sort of a short list this time around. I’m getting a stack of indie stuff, but that’s kinda it. I’m sure those of you with your Crises and your Houses are much busier than I am, and that’s just fine. Just don’t whine to me when you’ve spent your last dime on something featuring Spandex Rape Action and I’m kicking back with a bottle of Pappy van Winkle’s 15-year Special Reserve.
