Bonus Question: What did you do on Monday?


  1. Quiet little week for me, was hoping for a Hickman hat-trick, but no Secret #2 (been put back til next week) just FF & Ultimates!

    BQ- something really boring ‘WORK’!

  2. Interested in Grim Leaper, Superman Family Adventures and that New Star Trek/Dr. Who comic…how can i NOT check that out?

    Chilled out, watched Basketball, grilled the heck out of some chicken….

  3. Oooooohhhh, pretty excited for tommorow. Six comics, Peter Panzerfaust & Lil Depressed Boy (who looks like he might become Lil Happy boy for a bit) seem to be the highlights for me, though I have a feeling the Animal Man annual might blow me away. However I do also finish university tomorrow, so I might end up drunkenly picking up more than just the 6, who knows.

    BQ- Awful awful revison, 51 page review paper, never again I tells ya.

  4. Very light week. Just Batman Annual for me.

    BQ – celebrated my 25th birthday! Just relaxed with my family.

  5. BQ – Layed in the park all day and read Matt Kindt’s Mind MGMT issue 1 (excellent!) and the Comic Book History of Comics.

    Hulk is on the chopping block, i am giving it this stay angry arc to see if it gets dropped…kills me though, hulk is one of my favorite characters, and i think at this point i am only reading it out of loyalty to the character…

  21. Slowest week I’ve had in ages…which is probably a good thing, wallet-wise.

    Batman annual, Animal Man annual and American Vampire though so definitely quality over quantity. And will my curiosity lead to a purchase of The Ravagers? We’ll see.

    As for the BQ: being a Canuck, I was at work. But it was editing which is one of my favorite things to do so all is well!

  22. Light week. Five comics, two by subscription, so only three at retail.

    (ONE SHOT)

    Ordinarily, I’d pick up a trade just so my pull wasn’t so anemic, but Memorial Day pounded my wallet flat.

    BQ: Monday was sedate by comparison to the weekend. We joined the community pool. Welcome to the suburbs!

  28. Very light week for me just Batman Annual. Might take a look at Wolverine and X-men as been meaning to do so.

    BQ – I lay in bed all day with my aching back. Painful but caught up in a fair few books AND Young Justice.

  29. A medium week for me this week. Plus Crogan’s Loyalty! Hooray!

    BQ: A fair amount of Battlefield 3 topped off with a couple of movies. It was super hot here, so we chillaxed inside with the AC.


    BQ: Cleaned my condo, hit the gym, worked on my writing. And then watched half of the animated “Planet Hulk” off Netflix – which I liked more than I thought. Will probably finish it out today 🙂 Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day.

No BBQ, no parties, no drinks there is another day for that when ALL the veterans are out of the Afgan war & have parades held in their honor. Watched a little tv at 7pm & listened to some comic podcasts mainly a Joe Kubert interview that was on Where Monsters Dwell a while back.
