  2. Big week with a sad departure.

    Blackest Night #4

    Green Lantern #47

    Incredible Hercules #137

    Nova #30 (final issue for me folks)

    Superman Secret Origins #2

    Special Guests: Old Man Logan HC, Transmetropolitan vol.4: The New Scum

    BQ: Peanut M & M’s of course.

  3. Hey, where’s Casper and the Spectrals on the list?

  4. Monster fricken week! I normally try to keep my stack reasonably slim, but there are 16 books that I’m pulling this week! Naturally, I’m looking forward to the halfway point of Blackest Night, as well as the continuation of the already stellar Superman Secret Origins. I will also be picking up the X-Men Necrosha crossover, though I’ll be holding off all judgements until I read the first two parts this week. I’m also highly looking forward to the 50th issue of X-Factor (or is it the 199th?), as that’ll show the conclusion to the long story arc that has been taking place. What a crazy week!

     

    BQ: I always enjoyed getting mini Twix, though I also enjoy the thick Tootsie Roll logs that some people give out.

  5. Arkham Reborn #1 (OF 3)

    Batman #692

    Blackest Night #4 (OF 8)

    Dark Reign List Wolverine One Shot

    Detective Comics #858

    Fantastic Four #572

    Superman Secret Origin #2 (OF 6)

    Wolverine Weapon X #6

     

     

  6. My wallet is in trouble this week.. my first pass at the new comics list is 21 books.  Maybe I’ll cut that back when I get to my LCS.  I’m most looking forward to Blackest Night #4, Green Lantern #47, Nova #30 (30? really.. Nova made it to 30?), Superman: Secret Origin #2.. 

     

    BQ:  Do they make halloween size whatchamacallits?  If not.. I’m going with fun size Twix. 

  7. Detective, New Avengers, X-Factor, and Models Inc (which always seems to be left off the Diamond list, but I’m pretty sure it’s shipping.) 

    BQ: Pumpkin shaped candy-corns.  (Does that mean they’re not candy corns?  Anyway, the pumpkin things!)

  8. Really looking forward to Superman Secret Origins, Blackest Night and GL. I have a whopping 12 books on my list…which feels like too much, but I only pulled 5 last week. X-Factor 50 will be a game day decision.

  9. @ohcaroline: It is indeed shipping, as well as a Zombie Variant version of the cover. Cause we know people cant get enough of those zombie covers

  10. I have ***26*** books I’d normally pick up.

     26!!!

     It’s weeks like this that Marvel and DC actively MAKE ME drop books because of their scheduling. 

  11. damn this is up early today

    BQ: Kit Kat’s or Reese’s cups

  12. My list says I’m buying 25 books this week. I say diff’rent. Some hard cuts are coming.

    Of course, I did just brazenly add Green Lantern and Blackest Night despite the fact that I haven’t read the half dozen previous issues of either, which means they’re probably the first to go. Oh, Green Lantern. I almost bought you. Maybe next week.

    BQ: Now that there are Reeses Peanut Butter Pumpkins, why is other candy still being made?

  13. Punisher #10

    Punisher: The List

    FF 572

    Detective

     Maybes: Abe Sapien, Pilot Season Declassified

     BQ: Snickers.

  14. So many good comics! I’m most looking forward to: Blackest Night, Superman:Secret Origin, Green Lantern(Three Johns books!!!), Detective Comics, Fantastic Four(Sooooo excited), JSA, Superman, Gotham City Sirens, Batman, World’s Finest and Arkham Reborn. I might pick up Pinoccho Vampire Slayer when i have a little more cash.

    BQ: Those Reese’s peanutbutter cups shaped like Bats/Jack-O-Lanterns.  

  15. Atom Eve and Rex-Splode mini starts up this week, pretty excited for it.  Love Rex.  Oh, and a little thing called Blackest Night.  That should be fun.

    BQ: Some old guy used to give out mini bibles and no candy.  I preferred the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, or Laffy Taffy 

  16. Fantastic Four, Detective, Blackest Night, BH: Titans, Green Lantern, UC: Avengers, Arkham Reborn, World’s Finest, Anti-Venom, Clone Saga, Superman: Secret Origin, and Batman… Huge week for me

    BQ: Three Musketeers 

  17. I’m really looking forward to Fantastic Four! Also, might get the Dark Reign: Punisher one-shot cause I like Romita’s art, as well as the Dark Reign: Wolverine one-shot because I like the way Jason Aaron writes Wolverine.  I think I’m going to pick up Wolverine: Weapon X after I stopped reading the initial arc because this one sounds really interesting and a preview I read was really good.

    BQ: Kit-Kat are definitely my fave! Curse all you people and your ability to eat nuts!

  18. @drakedangerz mini-bibles vs peanut butter cups (reeses are the only kind.. all others taste weird) isn’t really a fair comparison. Who would actually prefer the mini-bible?

  19. @siraim: I would prefer them, actually. For target practice 🙂

  20. Looking forward to X-Necrosha, New Mutants, and X-Force.  Keeping my fingers crossed for the new x-crossover.

    BQ: Reeses PB Cups

  21. @siraim-Well, a more fair comparison would be mini bibles vs. mini toothbrush and floss (both of which I used to get)  

    Oh and walnuts.  Got lots of walnuts 

  22.  Lots of great stuff this week.It doesn’t seem many people talk about it but Ultimate Avengers has been great.I can’t get enough of the Pacheco artwork.

     

    B.Q. The kind that’s free.

  23. This is a big, sick week of comics. Blackest Night and tie-ins, the two Dark Reign Lists books I’m most looking forward to, FF, big ol’ Dynamo 5 25th issue, Atom Eve mini, Punisher, New Avengers, two Ultimate books, Superman Secret Origin – just a butt-load of good looking stuff.

    I’m most excited about Pinocchio Vampire Slayer OGN – met the writer at Baltimore con and he just sold me on it. A little wooden boy fighting vampires? That’s a Hollywood pitch if I ever heard one, and I’m sold. Really looking forward to this one.

    BQ: Those little boxes of Junior Mints – just the perfect amount.

  24. Fingers are tired.  I can’t type all of the books names.  Aside from the prior entries, I’m excited for X-Force #20 and Fantastic 4 #572.  Hickman and Eaglesham are knocking it out of the park.  Speaking of parks, Wednesday is also the day that the Phillies will win game 1 of the world series.  And Pearl Jam plays the Spectrum.  Who has the time to read 18 books?  Honestly.

    BQ: Whoppers.  Or stale pumpkin peeps.

  25. I can’t wait to read Superman: Secret Origins #2…..

    BQ: My favorite is Cup cakes!.. Two! No. Six! Twelve! Bakers dozen! You know I’m crazy for those cup cakes, iFanboy!!!!!

    BQ: No candy for me. I want to grow up to hate fun, just like Josh.

  28. Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    Lots of good stuff this week. 

     

    BQ: The Hundred Thousand Dollar Bar  

  29. Most weeks I typically try to drop books, but this week I’m going to try to pick some up. Wolverine Weapon X seems to be hitting a cool arc, and even though I dropped the book after the first 2 issues, this arc is luring me back in. Aaron is hard to deny. Also going to be checking out the Punisher The List because of Remenders recent Talksplode.

    Picking up Fantastic Four and plenty of DC goodness: Unknown Soldier, BN, GL, Superman: Secret Origin, and Detective Comics.

    BQ: Pie!

  30. Huge week! Most excited for New Avengers & War Machine, while X-Men Forever and Ms. Marvel are on the chopping block. And, of course, every issue of Detective Comics brings us that much closer to the possibility of a trade coming out…

    BQ: Reese’s.

  39. A light week again, but two of my currect favorites: NORTHLANDERS and UNKNOWN SOLDIER. Also considering picking up the FREAKANGELS trade.

    And where oh where is STUMPTOWN?

    BQ: If it’s free, it’s for me.

  40. Looks like a very strong week (not a weak week) for DC Comics! Three Blackest Night book, Superman Secret Origin & throw in some Jason Aaron Wolverine just for gravy.

    BQ- Choc-dipped wombat balls.

  41. Every week is huge!!!  Highlights I can see are Blackest Night, Detective, Unknown Soldier, FF and Hercules.  Remender/JRJR on Punisher should be groovy too.

    BQ:  Halloween was never a big thing in the Uk when I was a wee lad, but it’s taken off in a big way now that I have a son.  Personally I go for Cadbury’s chocolate, and any candy that has that sour/fizzy/sugary taste.

  44. Does anyone know if the Rocketeer Complete Collection is coming out?

  45. Big superhero week. Green Lantern and Blackest, Secret Warriors and Fantastic Four, Detective Comics and Superman Secret Origin, New Avengers and Ultimate Avengers.

    Abe Sapien… maybe

     

    BQ: As an australian, my favourite hallowen candy (or lollies as we call them) is waiting three days and getting hammered at a Melboourne Cup Day party.

    If you don’t know, here’s what happens. Australia has a huge horse race, millions of dollar bet, the country take half a day off to watch. BUT! The best part about the day is that, for some reason, the usual manners of drinking don’t apply and people will literally be falling down drunk in the centre of own major cities by 2pm. It’s a wonderful day.

  46. Going with the Bat-books: BATMAN & Detective Comics also F4 & New Avengers.  I would also love to pick up the issues for Unknown Soldier and Secret Warriors but Im waiting on the trades.  

    I’d also dig getting the OM Logan but cant justify $35 for a HC I have the issues for.

    BQ: easy one its all in a name; 100 grand!

    @edward sounds magical, and do they still have the hazelnut snickers in the au? when I was there I had one and they were amazing

  47. Huge week.  8 singles but 6 Tpb’s  About to drop a ton of $cash money.

  48. AMBUSH BUG!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAMMMMBUSSSHHHHH BUG!!!!! AMBUSH BUG!!!!!

     BQ: Hershey bars, no nuts. 

  49. Anything that’s made by Wonka is good.

  50. blakcets night stuff, new avengers, guardians of the galaxy, nova

  52. My so called huge week for me where I get 5 titles instead of 2 or 3.

    BQ? In the UK, they used to do those salted, chocolate pretzels. I’d kill for some of those this Halloween.

  62. @HailScott, I’ve been waiting for Freakangels #3 for a while now, considering I could have read it online for free, it says something about the calibre of Warren Ellis. Apparently he can’t believe people are buying it.

    Oh and only after the first two issues of Fantastic Four have to say it’s risen to one of my favourite comics. Looking forward to that too! 

     

  63. Did anyone else know that Wellington Alves is doing artwork for War Machine?

    That’s almost enough reason for me to try the series out.

  67. Stumptown is next week everybody. I know, I got worried too.

  68. BQ: NOT razor blades! (^_^)

  69. Yes, plenty of Bat-books for me:  I’m giving Tony Daniel a chance on Batman.  BFTC wasn’t anything special, but it was readable.  I can’t wait to see what Batwoman’s origin is all about cuz I never read 52.  Then I am gonna read the other Batwoman arc all over again after this one.  Arkham Reborn looks cool. The BFTC one shot was pretty neat.  Not a big fan of the art in Gotham City Sirens but I’m following the story.  I can’t wait until they put a new artist on there!

    I wanna get Worlds Finest and FF too.  Hope I have enough cash cuz I’m just gonna shoplift if I don’t.

    BQ:  Kit Kat

  70. I just now got a job a couple of days ago. So my buying of comics still consists of browsing at the LCS. Still looking forward to it.
