this Wednesday, February 1st. Here’s the full list
from Diamond, and the below gathering is what
I will most likely be purchasing.
OCT050017 CONCRETE VOL 3 FRAGILE CREATURE TP $12.95
I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to spend more time with this comic thanks to these handy-sized reprints. Sometimes, Chadwick’s a little clumsy in his delivery, but this work says so much about the human condition that I’m willing to forgive the occasional slips.
DEC050317 CITY OF TOMORROW TP $19.99
Howard Chaykin, sex robots, guns, and nifty designs. Some of us like that kind of thing.
DEC050276 SEVEN SOLDIERS BULLETEER #3 (OF 4) $2.99
Blah blah blah misunderstood commentary on sexism blah blah blah go read fucking Blowjob if you don’t get it.
DEC052082 AVENGERS GALACTIC STORM VOL 1 TP $29.99
When I posted about this a while back, wondering it I’d like it very much and Tim O’Neil and commenter Craig said it was pretty darn good, so I’m trusting you guys, to the tune of 30 bones. (Less after my discount, but still.)
DEC051990 FURY PEACEMAKER #1 (OF 6) $3.50
Ennis + Fury = LOVE
DEC052006 I HEART MARVEL MY MUTANT HEART $2.99
I saw Tim Fish at Diesel one day, doing corrections on this at the last minute. What I saw looked quite cute and right up my Mary-Jane buying alley.
DEC052021 MARVEL ROMANCE REDUX BUT HE SAID HE LOVED ME #1 (OF 5) 2.99
Again, lots of discussion about this being Marvel’s take on the whole Last Kiss / Truer Than True Romance setup, but I’m sure I’ll give it a look or three.
DEC052081 MARVEL ROMANCE TP $19.99
This is the sort of archival thing I like. Dick Giordano, Jack Kirby, Gray Morrow, and Sol Brodsky, all in the same book? Yes, please!
OCT053103 BUCKAROO BANZAI PREVIEW $0.50
The ultimate 80s movie returns to comics. The first “regular” issue is solicited in this month’s Previews (which I will review in the next week or so, I promise,) so I’m in a happy place.
OCT053178 FLYING FRIAR #1 $4.95
Issue 3 of Holed Up? Still not out. I guess I can forgive Rich Johnston because this book tells the heartwarming story of a young Franciscan who can fly and is forced to battle Martin Luther’s great nephew, Lex Luther. I’m sure I’m not the only one that thinks that is high-fucking-larious. You can read more about it from The Times here.
DEC052778 REX LIBRIS #3 $2.95
This time, we get to see Rex collecting a lost tome. I hope this means bloodshed.
That’s it for me – what are you buying, true believers?
