This week Ron Richards has the Pick of the Week!

Bonus Question: How’s the weather by you?


  1. One flash, some batman, some jl dark and some green lantern, plus planetoid. That’s my week.

    It’s humid and rainy.

  2. Small week…Looking forward to Flash and Dr. Manhattan. Venom too.
    BQ: Muggy and Humid 🙁

  3. So, PotW will not be Scalped #60. I foresee a lengthy discussion, though.

    BQ: Cool and pleasant.

  4. Josh doesn’t have pick of the week the last issue of Scalped comes out?

  5. I’m curious to see Bunn alone on Venom and am trade waiting for Planetiod since my LCS refuses to get it for me after issue 1. Down from 8 to 3 books this week hoping Flash gets better and Secret Avengers keeps it up!

  6. A quiet week for me :- The Flash & now Justice League Dark, that I’d previously dropped during the I, Vampire x-over. I like Mikel Janin’s art, which is apparently getting better & better. I hear Mr. Lemire’s working wonders, so I’m giving it another shot.

    BQ : Humid with cloudy spells. Made for an unpleasant travelling experience on “the tube”.

  7. 5 issue week.

    BQ: A little breezy.

  8. Did Batman Incorporated #3 get pushed back to this week?

  9. where is batman inc #3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. New Rocketeer!

  11. I’m getting Flash, Spidey, The Dark Knight, Wolverine Annual and hopefully Batman Inc #3.

  12. Only 1 book for me this week. I hate it when these weeks happen. Stupid 5th week months…

    All Star Western

    BQ: Very nice day. Mid 70s with a nice breeze. The weather should be like this all the time in every corner of the planet.

  13. It’s so funny to see Morrison’s Batman has until now 3 PULLS! hahahha

  14. Lobster Johnson, Ghost Prison, Dr Manhatten, Punisher….and…Batman Inc

    BQ: i live in Phoenix so FUCKIN’ HOT!!!

  15. The weather here in southern California is HOT! 🙁

  16. Flash, Amazing Spider-Man, Invincible Iron Man and Firestorm for me.

    BQ: beautiful, actually. Cool with a slight breeze.

  17. Man, very light week. ASM, Flash, Rocketeer (!), Teen Titans and GL: New Guardians.

    Rainy, but pleasant none the less.

  18. Light week for me:

    America’s Got Powers #3
    Batman Incorporated #3
    Superman #12

    Question for the community:

    Should we expect OHC treatment for Scalped? Haven’t read it yet, but it sounds highly praised to the point I almost have to pick it up. However, if we think OHCs are eventually coming I will hold off, if not, Comixology… here I come!!!

  19. Invincible #94 is out this week, not currently listed on here. Also Cobra, Punisher, Vampirella, 2000AD, etc.

    BQ: Not bad, a bit cool, 70s.

  20. Lightest week I’ve ever had: The Amazing Spider-Man #692, Uncanny X-Men #17, Teen Titans #12, The Flash #12, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #13.

  21. It’s so damn hot! Milk was a bad choice.

  22. Hot.

  23. Ok, so I recently cut ten titles from my list, and apparently six of them fell on this week. Leavig me with only JLD and Batman Inc. (which I bought when it came out the first time). Looks like I’ll be skipping a trip to the LCS once a month.

    BQ: Weather’s been pretty nice this weekend in South Jersey. Little cloudy, but nice and cool for the first time all summer.

  24. Hot & humid in central Louisiana.

  25. It’s all about Scalped this week. I think it will live up to my expectations. If either Josh or Connor have the Pick this week I think this will be the book. I also really want that Invisibles Omnibus.

  26. Getting:

    Batman Incorpoated
    The Flash
    Justice League Dark

    Lobster Johnson

    Mars Attacks
    Rocketeer: cargo of doom

    BQ: hot (for Vancouver), 28c. Got burned to a crisp today.

  27. Very light week for me:

    Batman Inc. #3
    Dr. Manhattan #1

    Wasn’t the Manhattan Projects TP supposed to come out this week as well?

    BQ: Hot and sunny!

  28. Lobster Johnson, Dr. Manhattan, Planetoid, Batman Inc, Secret Avengers.
    BQ: Detroit area has been mid 70’s in the day and high to mid 60’s at night…….nice, Autumn is in the air and I love it!

  29. PLANETOID #3

    BQ-HOTT in Florida

  30. this week I’m getting The Flash, Justice League Dark, Green Lantern: New Guardians, Mind MGMT, and Supercrooks but my lcb seem to have a big problem getting mind mgmt in on the week it’s out.

    THE FLASH #12

    BQ: It’s warm in the Netherlands 23C/73F, but uncomfortable due to the humidity. Not as bad as it was during the weekend though with 37C/98F and bloody humid too.

  32. Short week for me as well.

    All Star Western
    JLA Dark

    To everyone who is saying they don’t have enough this week give IDW’s TMNT a try. It’s an excellent series.

  33. P2 (@maudblog) says:

    I’m not normally a TPB person, but Prophet, and the collected Starstruck from IDW have my eye.

  34. Invincible Iron Man, The Unwritten, Batman Inc. & Mind MGMT!

    BQ- overcast pissing shit welsh weather!

  35. I’m in South Florida. It’s summer. Going outside is like walking inside an angry gorilla’s sweaty rectum.

  36. P2 (@maudblog) says:

    Oh Yeah, and Mind MGMT from Dark Horse…
    hard to explain, but if I could combine ingredients from X-Files, Fringe, and maybe even Planetary – this book is what I’d want to come out of the oven. Smart, riveting stuff, and this week Is part one of two.

  37. Josh has pulled nothing this week. Apparently he has better things to do.

  38. Most excited for All Star Western, Secret Avengers, and especially Rocketeer.

    Weather’s pretty nice in New England the past few days after weeks of it being very hot.

  39. I’ll pick up Rocketeer, Dark Horse Presents, Mind MGMT, Lobster Johnson, and Planetoid this week.

  40. Lets see,


    A smaller week, but really looking forward to Star Wars.

    BQ: The weather has been up and down here in southeastern PA, 90 and sunny one day, 70 and rainy the next.

  41. Batman Incorporated is closing in on the Flash for most pulls! I figured it would have happened already, Lol.

  42. Does Hit-Girl 2 #3 come out this week?

  43. Nothing too mind blowing this week (except for Secret Avengers and Invincible), yet I’m still pulling 8 books this week. I’m doing something wrong here. Might be time to start cutting some titles again…

    BQ: The weather’s wacky down here in glorious Austin, TX. It was 75 this morning, then worked it’s way up to almost 100. It even rained a little! Mind blowing stuff, believe me.
