Occasional Previews: What I'm Buying This Week!

I'm just gettin' paid from my various freelance marketing/copywriting gigs...

which means...


Death Of The New Gods #1 (of 8), $3.50 - yeah, I'm getting suckered into this. I know, I know...

Captain America #31 CWI, $2.99

Marvel Comics Presents #2, $3.99

Marvel Zombies 2 #1 (of 5), $2.99 - yeah I'm getting suckered into this one too

Mighty Avengers #5 CWI, $2.99

Penance Relentless #2 (of 5), $2.99 - EMO!


  1. Bah, I only bought Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness for the Ash love. Read Marvel Zombies 2 in the shop, IMHO.

    Otherwise I'll be picking up Countdown (gag me), Brave and the Bold (SQUEE!), and... well, I'm not sure what else. I'm pretty sure there's something else I'm picking up, I just can't remember what.

  2. Just Cap for me this week.

  3. I may very well snap from Death of the New Gods. Not. A. Happy. Mordicai. I guess this is the new cross company cycle? Marvel: Kill of Kirby creations! Marvel: Bring back Kirby creations! DC: Kill off Kirby creations!


  4. I'm getting The Programme 4, Mighty Avengers, and Terror, Inc.

    Death Of The New Gods makes me want to smash Didio's mailbox. Grrr.

  5. I'll be getting Birds of Prey, Checkmate, Captain America, Death of the New Gods, Justice League and... sigh... Countdown. Yeah. I know. On the bright side the other books should be really, really good.

    Have a good day.

  6. What I plan on buying this week:

    Umbrella Academy #2
    Brave and The Bold #7
    DMZ #24
    Ex Machina #31
    Fables #66
    Sword #1
    Captain America #31
    Marvel Comics Presents #2
    Mighty Avengers #5
    Ultimate Fantastic Four #47
    Ultimate X-Men #87
    The Boys #11

  7. Highwaymen #5 & Suburban Glamour #1

  8. I didn't realize Umbrella Academy was out this week. I loved the first issue, will be picking up 2 for sure.

  9. My New Comic Day is a week behind y'alls, so I'll be buying old news.

    Curious though, on your opinion Val: Brave and Bold Wonder Woman and Power Girl: So Good or No Good? Nrama's got some preview pages up that I think looks kinda neato...

  10. If people don't like Countdown, then why buy it??? For the amount of bitching about DC y'all do, you seem more than happy to buy the stuff you bitch about endlessly.

    For me, it's Mighty Avengers, Terror Inc, and Umbrella Academy. New Bendis, Lapham, and Gabriel Ba *all* in the same week??? I must be dreaming!!!

  11. I think I'm just getting Captain America and Marvel Comics Presents this week.

  12. countdown
    captain america
    mighty avengers
    new excalibur (god claremont should be fired and hung but im bound by X-title laws to buy this crap)
    wolverine origins
    penance relentless
    ultimate xmen
    x men emperor vulcan

    (i get my vertigo stuff in trade, so have to wait til DMZ and Fables and Y come out damnit!)

  13. I'll be getting

    Army @ Love #8
    Checkmate #19
    The Programme #4
    Shadowpact #18
    Cory Doctorow's Futuristic Tales of the Here & Now #1
    The Dark Tower collection

    Which is actually a fairly light week for me. Normally I pick up fewer individual issues and at least two trades.
