Bonus Question: What did you do with your Labor Day?


  1. B.Q. Went to work!

  2. Just ‘Tec #0 and Batman: Knightfall Vol 3 TPB for me this week.

    BQ: Painted our deck.

  3. This week – I get my comics from LAST month.

  4. For this week it’s Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Earth 2, Phantom Stranger, and Green Arrow solely for the fact that Winick is writing him for one issue. Also picking up the third Batman: Knightfall trade, Aquaman vol 1, and Teen Titans vol 1 (I like the new take on the series).

    BQ: Lots of reading for classes.

  5. With Marvel NOW happening, I’ve stopped buying all Marvel books until they start over…. Otherwise the books feel like filler for the most part….

  6. I don’t know what it is about the first and last weeks… 19 comics last week, 18 comics this week. I love reading them when they come out, but I’m starting to consider putting a limit on how many I take home from the store just so I can balance out my reading each week more.

    BQ: Saw Hit and Run.

  7. Massive #4

    BQ: Watched Star Trek and Doctor Who.

  8. Amazing Spider-man 693
    Animal Man 0
    Hawkeye 2
    Swamp Thing 0

  9. Manhattan Projects v1! and my copy of Prophet v1 should be in tomorrow.

    BQ: Smashed the state, then seized the means of production. Also, read X-Men: Schism, checked out from the library. Meh.

  10. Everyone should buy the Manhattan Project. A mix bag of stuff this week. I didn’t get into swamp thing or animal man, so this is a week where I feel dopey for passing something up that most everyone else is digging.

    Hawkeye was fun, some GL, Earth 2 I’ve really enjoyed, some batman…good week.

    BQ: we treated labor day like it was “spring cleaning” summer style…wash cars, wash and groom dogs…move furniture. It was a blast…

  11. HOLY SHIT MY PULL IS HUGE THIS WEEK but im probably gonna drop Green Arrow, Batwing (when Winick leaves), Catwoman and maybe Red Hood since Rocafort left. But im uber excited for X-Factor, Earth 2, Mind The Gap.

    BQ: Stayed at home.

  12. A very light, but probably really awesome week for me — just Hawkeye and Thief of Thieves.

    The Massive #4 is on the list, but Dark Horse and Previews say it won’t be out until next week. Hopefully they’re both wrong!

    BQ: Spent the weekend having fun on a couple different lakes in northern Michigan. Spent most of Labor Day itself sitting in traffic on I-75, then put in an exhausted and subpar performance at pub trivia.

  13. BQ: Read comic books and books about comic books.

  14. Decent week for me:

    EARTH 2 #0
    THE CAPE: 1969 #3

    BQ: Turned 33… Christ I’m old!!

  15. BQ – Raced R/C trucks Friday night, partied like a Scotsman Saturday, worked on my Lakehouse Sunday, caught up on last 1/2 year+ of Vampirella, BBQ’d Monday and watched Dr Who.

  16. My week:

    Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #3
    Detective Comics #0
    Earth 2 #0
    Green Lantern #0
    Swamp Thing #0
    TMNT Micro-Series #8

    BQ: Started reading the 94 new comic books and 1 new GN from the past 2.5 months that I haven’t had the time for until now.

  17. Invincible Iron Man, Dark Avengers, Green Lantern, Animal Man (could be my last issue), Hawkeye, Glory TPB, Starman Omnibus Vol.2 & to show how sad I am some cheesy Manga with Bleach & One Piece!

    BQ- Don’t celebrate it over here in the UK, otherwise at work!

  18. Earth 2, Action, AoA, USM, Punisher, GL, Silk Spectre

    BQ: put up misters, drank beer and BBQ’d with friends and family. it was awesome.

  19. I’d dropped action comics, hoping this pulls me back, same for batwing. Can’t wait for Silk Spectre.
    BQ: went to work, UK no day off, hope you all enjoyed your day off.

    BATWING #0
    EARTH 2 #0
    ROAD TO OZ #1

  20. Oddly, an all DC week for me, getting:

    Action Comics
    Animal Man
    Swamp Thing

    Phantom Stranger (classic horror character & Didio has earned one for OMAC).
    Stormwatch (preview looks insane, seriously, panel ot week material).
    Worlds Finest (Maguire art looks fantastic).

    BQ: don’t remind me. what a s**t day.

  21. Animal Man
    Swamp Thing
    Detective Comics
    Mind the Gap

    BQ: Spent the day recording a music video for my friend’s song. So much fun.

  22. Earth 2 #0 – current favourite DC title.
    Green Lantern #0 – curious about Baz & his side-arm.
    Phantom Stranger #0 – can’t quite believe I’m pulling this, but following OMAC, am giving Didio a shot.
    World’s Finest #0 – Maguire’s art is really impressing me.

    Have dropped quite a few of the DC #0’s. A lot of them seem to be filler material.

    BQ : Just a regular day, here in the UK. Had a job interview.

  23. Moved from OH to CT in June, so the last few months have been finding work and rebuilding the bank account so no comics. My LCS is kind enough to hold my stuff, so I’m looking forward to NuDCU #s 10-11’s next week.

    From this week’s pull for me are: Alter Ego and Back Issue.

    BQ: Fix a shelf and bicker. We made up.

  24. Three comics for me this week and they’re all 0 issues. I can wait til next week to pick up my books.

    BQ: Had a BBQ on Sunday with friends, most of whom had to work yesterday. Myself included. Retail blows.

  25. The only thing I have lined up this week is FAIREST b/c I saw that Matthew Sturges wrote it. Does anyone know what else he has been up to since House of Mystery?

    BQ: Movies with the family (Paranorman- not so hot).

  26. MIND THE GAP 4

    …just sayin…. 🙂

  27. Earth 2
    Animal Man
    Swamp Thing
    GI Combat
    Phantom Stranger
    Planet of the Apes: Cataclysm (WHOOOP!!)

    Manhattan Project TPB
    The Boys
    TMNT: Fugitoid

  30. BQ: Took the day off.
