Bonus Question: What piece of clothing would you like to come back into style?


  1. BQ: Dapper Dan suits and dookie ropes

  2. BQ: mini skirts. Especially the 90’s style pencil minis. As for comics, the Cinderella and Losers trades are my top picks. Great books that’ll look great on the shelf.

  3. Good week of comics.

    Hellboy: The Storm #2, Hit-Monkey #2, SHIELD #3, Sweet Tooth #12, and Thunderbolts #145 2nd reprint (hopefully).

    BQ: Pharaoh garb.  

  4. BQ: bell bottoms, but only for girls who look like they could be extras on That 70s’ Show

  5. BQ: Frock coats.

  6. Good but not great week.

    Hellboy, Last Family of Krypton, Sweet Tooth, Avengers Prime, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Irredeemable.

    BQ: Snap Bracelets or self drying jackets from back to the future 2.

  7. I’m most looking forward to Casanova #2, I dug the first issue quite a bit.

    BQ: hats & trench coats, everybody looks good in ’em

  8. BQ: granny dresses and combat boots

  9. Brightest Day is picking up finally.  Red Robin, Jonah Hex, and Captain America also look promising.  I’m mostly excited for the Cinderella trade.

    BQ: top hats, of course.  Everybody looks hip in top hats…

  10. Wow, just Brightest Day and Red Robin for me.

  11. Amazing Spidey, Avengers Prime, Captain America, and Ultimate Avengers 2

    BQ: Fanny packs, specifically my vinyl TMNT fanny pack from 2nd grade.

  12. BQ: Overalls. Man I loved girls in overalls in 1999.

  13. Light week, but House of Mystery and Red Robin have me looking forward to Wednesday.

    BQ: I don’t know if it counts as clothing, but I am bringing back the chain wallet because I am old and lose my wallet and keys everyday. If they’re combined, that cuts my aggravation in half!

  14. Light week (thank goodness)

    Captain America, Shield, Brightest Day and Irredemable


    BQ: Zoot suits! 

  15. Heavy week for a Daredevil Fan. Shadowland, Shadowland: Bullseye, and Daredevil Black and White.

    Isn’t Shadowland: Daughters of the Shadow coming out this week as well?

    From DC, Rebels and Red Robin. 

  16. So cool, and a little unbelievable, to see a book as unusual as Shield so far up the list.  Dreading ASM, but there’s a few interesting nuggets like Casanova, Humanoids’ Whispers in the Walls, and Avengers Prime.  Oh, and is that Supergod.  It’s been so long I don’t think I even care any more…

    BQ:  Trench coats a la Alain Delon in Le Samourai…effortless cool.

  17. My only definite this week is Hawkeye & Mockingbird. Maybe Secret Six and/or Avengers Prime if I can get caught up on the previous issues that I had missed.

    BQ: Oh man, I am so not stylish. I have no idea. Ummm… How about those color changing t-shirts from the 80s that changed color when they got wet or in different temperatures or whatever?

  18. Man, it’s sad when a light week for me is like 9 books.  Ugh.  I need to cut my list for sure.  Looking forward to Red Robin, Casanova, Hellboy, and Tom Strong.  Also, I can’t wait for FogTown, the new Vertigo Crime book.  The pitch for it sounds so perfect for that line, and it sounds awesome.

    BQ: Zoobaz!  

  19. I can’t believe I’m not buying anything this week, Oh well, I’ll still swing by my local store, see if I change my  mind.

  20. Another Light week for me: Amazing Spider-Man, Hawkeye and Mockingbird, SHIELD, and Sweet Tooth.

    BQ: Hawian Shirts! and I mean good hawian shirts not those shitty faux silk craptastrophes that they sell nowadays. I mean good Hawian Shirts, Magnum PI Style! 

  21. @Patman2 – Hawaiian shirts have alwars been, and WILL always be, in style.

    Avengers Prime, Captain America, Hawkeye & Mockingbird, R.E.B.E.L.S., S.H.I.E.L.D., Red Robin, Shadowland, Last Family of Krypton, Sonic the Hedgehog, Young Allies.

    Done with OMIT, Brightest Day, Gorilla Man, Hit Monkey.

    BQ: Spinning medalions.

  22. Ocean’s Eleven style suits. SUIT UP, BOYS! And fedoras. They’re awesome, anytime. I’m picking up Hawkeye & Mockingbird, Spidey & Avengers : Prime. I’m such a Marvel Zombie.

  23. Wow, I’m only getting four books.

  24. Light week?  Pick up HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD #1 for free on the iPad app.  Then issue 2 & this week is issue 3 in stores!  🙂


    Just sayin!

  25. Well played, Crazy Man MCcann 🙂

  26. This should make for an interesting week. Cornell with some more MI13 goodness in Spitfire should definitely be alot of fun, and Captain America, Hawkeye & Mockingbird and Avengers Prime have all turned out to be really fun reads. Definitely looking forward to see where each of them go. On the other hand, I’m also picking up ASM #639 and SHIELD #3. Now I actually liked ASM #638 for the most part, and though it had a novel concept. However, I have no idea where they are going to go with it in the next few parts, and not in a good way. Hopefully that will suprise me. SHIELD, however, has been a huge disappointment from the beginning, and I’m half picking it up because I want to give it opne more chance cause of the art, and half because I want to see if they’re really going to put out another issue with dry and ambiguous storytelling.


    BQ: Believe it or not, JNCO Jeans. I really like baggy jeans, and I absolutely abhor the tight & skinny jean trend nowadays. I want my super baggy jeans back!

  27. got 4-5 books this week. Daredevil Black and White should be interesting, and really looking forward to the next part of One Moment in Time over in Amazing Spider-Man.


    BQ: Flannel shirts! 

  28. Light week here, but i still need last weeks books, which numbered in the double digits. Stupid bills!

     BQ: The leaf. don’t think it’s been used since Genesis.

  29. BQ: I do hope you are not suggesting the fedora is not in style, because it is everywhere. 

  30. BQ: Cloaks

  31. Most excited for Avengers Prime and Doomwar.

    BQ: I think I’d like vests to come back in style.


  32. Clothes from the 30s or the late 90s like brightly colored zoot suits (like in CAKE’s video for ‘the distance’…God I miss the late 90s) oh and I own two fedoras and LOVE THEM!!!

  33. SPATS!

  34. Only two books for me this week. I may not even go to the shop. *GASP* Who am I kidding? I’ll go and buy something I don’t normally read instead of saving the money.

    BQ: Fedoras for sure. Also cloaks. And walking sticks. Basically I want to walk around everyday dressed like The Phantom Stranger.

  35. Only Hex for me. Parachute pants.

  36. Daredevil Black and White, Shadowland, and Tom Strong.


    BQ: Hypercolor shirts and Jams.

  37. Avengers Prime #2 (OF 5)
    Brightest Day #7
    Captain America #608

    Deadpool Wade Wilsons War #3 (OF 4)
    Izombie #4
    Jonah Hex #58
    Red Robin #15
    S.H.I.E.L.D. #3
    Secret Warriors #18

    As always, looking forward to reading Hex and Red Robin. I hope there is more focus on the Firestorm story in BD. That issue left off in a very interesting place.

    BQ: Fedoras should make a comeback, I’d rock the hell out of it. Also Monacles would be cool.

  38. Oh I don’t know. Everything backed up on my list from July 14th to August 4th I suppose. I can kiss nearly $150 good bye. I definetly need to start an account with dcbs.

  39. Secret Six, Amazing, Shadowland, Daredevil Black and White. Might check out Baltimore..


    BQ: Hammer pants and jellies.
