  1. Marvel Apes? Already?

    When will it end?! I dont think Marvel is kidding when they stated that a Marvel Zombies vs Marvel Apes mini could come out in the future…Gah, who honestly thinks this will be any good?

    Also…did Josh just recommend Archie?….

  2. I haven’t watched the video, but I vomited a little in my mouth when I saw Marvel Apes there. 

    Marvel "Themed" books = 7 months of annoying variants and jokes.


  4. Uh, Josh, you do know that the massive Fables 75 comes out this week, right?

  5. Cool.  That’s why we have a comment section.  Exciting.

  6. Yup, I also didn’t see Fables on Diamond’s expected list but the Midtown Comics list that they post over on the Millaworld boards had it down so here’s hoping that it arrives because it should be AWESOME.

  7. @josh: It might be light, but Archie? Seriously? Then again that gets bought a lot at my store, so a couple of people are excited about it…But the man who preaches Fables all the time and not mention it…for shame Josh.

    That said GL will probably be my POTW by default, but I’ll give that Roberts book a try too.

  8. Did my dry, ironic wit fly over some heads again?  I get that sometimes.

  9. I’m sorry Josh I was expecting your more impersonator like comedy. It would be great if you were just in character for a whole mini.

  10. Wow, that was a pretty weak week but a different location is always a bonus.  Well at least I have Invincible Iron Man, and Kurosagi Corpse Deliver Service to look forward to.

  11. Archie Digest….  Seriously?

  12. I was gonna go with the Apes, but then I saw the story title. The Apes of Wrath. Groan. Nope, my simeon simoleons are going towards Guerillas, which was sadly out of stock by the time I made it to the LCS on Saturday.

  13. Crap. Should be "simian." My one good line and I step all over it like I’m Joe Freaken Biden.

  14. I’m sorry, but ‘Apes Of Wrath’ is just an AMAZING subtitle. I’m not joking. Long, standing ovation for whoever thought that up… Still won’t be buying it though.

  15. The RNC is in town, and it’s at times like these where I turn to comics, I’m hoping that this weeks Archie Digest will help me put things into perspective.

    can any one say "police state" for a week or so.
