ACTION COMICS #862
JACK OF FABLES #20
KICK ASS #1
X-MEN FIRST CLASS VOL 2 #9
X-MEN LEGACY #208
And DC narrowly beats Marvel! Btw, any idea what Kick Ass is? I seem to remember reading about it, and I seem to remember being interested...

RASL! RASL! RASL!!!
Also yet another month of buying Army @ Love in the hope that one day I'll get #6 and be able to read it, and the new-format TCJ probably won't be a jumping-off point, but will hopefully get to pick it up and find out. Would really like to be buying the new Nexus mini, but the comic shop has other ideas.

ACTION COMICS #862--goddammit I'm addicted to this story now
CRIME BIBLE THE FIVE LESSONS OF BLOOD #5--can we just call this comic MONTOYA and then people might buy it?
SHOWCASE PRESENTS SUPERMAN FAMILY VOL. 2--Lois 'n' Jimmy madness!
CAPTAIN AMERICA #35--Brubaker's best superhero book right now
CRIMINAL 2 #1--Brubaker's best book right now
DAREDEVIL #105--it's a Brufecta!
KICK-ASS #1--I am very wary about Millar, but I'll give his stuff a try...
WORLD WAR HULK: AFTERSMASH: DAMAGE CONTROL #2--the first issue was unexpectedly delightful!
NEXUS #100--something better happen this time
RASL #1--well, I liked the preview...
COMICS JOURNAL #288--new format, I think!
I'm also amused but pleased that there's a new printing of the excellent SMALL FAVORS VOL. 1--if people are picking it up because they like the X-MEN FIRST CLASS backups, they might be... very surprised.
And... just amused that there's a Captain America business card holder.

these ship threads... people just list the comics they are going to buy?
― The Real Dirty Vicar, Tuesday, 26 February 2008 12:14 (twelve years ago) link
and sometimes maybe add a witty comment or two, yes.
And then after being purchased and read occasionally a new release or two will be discussed in this very thread. But that's still a day or two off.
Here is what I shall pay for: Batman, Blue Beetle, Captain America, Criminal, Daredevil, and X-Men First Class. And I will definitely buy DC Showcase Presents Superman Family Vol. 2 once I've dug out from the avalanche of books received at Christmas.
― Garrett Martin, Tuesday, 26 February 2008 14:24 (twelve years ago) link
Batman, Blue Beetle, Captain America and, um, She-Hulk...and I don't know if I'll be able to resist Superman Family Showcase. Jimmy, oh, Jimmy.
RASL is out this week?
I wanted to bring up Blue Beetle with the last issue, but forgot. But the last issue was SO FUCKING GOOD. Seriously.

So, hey, hi dere, what I am getting:
BATMAN #674 -- mmmmmmehing me out, mostly because of the art (blaaah)
BLUE BEETLE #24 -- if John Rogers is here, then so I be
CAPTAIN AMERICA #35 -- BRU
CRIMINAL 2 #1 -- BA
DAREDEVIL #105 -- KER
KICK ASS #1 -- I don't care if JRJR channels his dad & Kirby & the Music of the Spheres; if MM spits out one of those godawful "hey, let me have a character point out this awesome idea I had in a totally graceless fashion" dialog balloons, I will kick this book's ass
MARVEL ZOMBIES 2 #5 -- not as balls-out fun as the 1st series; reads more like Marvel Pop Art fan-fic (AKA the kinda stuff I would totally write if given $$$ and the MU's sandbox)
SHE-HULK 2 #26 -- pro-forma PAD, which ain't bad, but I fear it could become a home for PAD's bad habits
SPIDER-MAN WITH GREAT POWER #2
THUNDERBOLTS INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT -- AKA a wheel-spinning special to give Mike Deodato time to do more cross-hatching
ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR #51 -- why Tyler Kirkham? Marat Mychaels was busy?
ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #119 -- Stuart Immomnen [sp?] is awesome
WORLD WAR HULK AFTERSMASH DAMAGE CONTROL #2 (OF 3) -- what Mr. Wolk said
X-MEN FIRST CLASS VOL 2 #9 -- (not) EROTIC
X-MEN LEGACY #208
GRAVEL #1 -- regular series featuring Warren Ellis' battle magician dude from various Avatar minis (w/ WE on co-writing duties); I am looking forward to the snark and Boing Boing research
RASL #1 -- totally forgot about this; will order & cry when I find out it's sold out
― David R., Wednesday, 27 February 2008 04:30 (twelve years ago) link
I suspect I will be only buying Criminal, unless I crack and buy some other piece of crap on a "one floppy is too few" basis.
― The Real Dirty Vicar, Wednesday, 27 February 2008 12:35 (twelve years ago) link
Ditto what Real DV said
― Chuck_Tatum, Wednesday, 27 February 2008 20:31 (twelve years ago) link
SHIT, totally forgot RASL. Did get Showcase Supes Fam 2. The cover was EERIEsistable.
― Dr. Superman, Thursday, 28 February 2008 05:06 (twelve years ago) link
Action Comics was quite the enjoyment agaib. Not sure what world I've woken up in when this week's Geoff Johns comics are better than this week's Grant Morrison ones, but hey.
― Chuck_Tatum, Thursday, 28 February 2008 16:37 (twelve years ago) link
wow, I bought four comics -
All Star Batman & Robin
Grant Morrison Batman
RASL (I must be one of those first issue fiends you hear about)
― The Real Dirty Vicar, Thursday, 28 February 2008 16:42 (twelve years ago) link
I thought Action Comics was definitely good - probably the weakest part of the arc so far, but it's been a thrilling great arc. But Batman has been getting better and better. I thought this issue was amazing. It might've helped that I read the long Morrison interview this week, so I feel confident that he knows what he's doing. (The Altered States'esque reveal was awesome.)
― Mordy, Thursday, 28 February 2008 18:12 (twelve years ago) link
Link to the interview?
― Rock Hardy, Thursday, 28 February 2008 18:45 (twelve years ago) link
I really, really dug Batman this week. Couldn't help but imagine how amazingly awesome (and likely delayed) it would have been with a superior artist like JHW3, but, it's floppy comics, right?
Blue Beetle continues to be fantastic. The current storyline (which concludes next month) is sorta the culmination of the whole series to date (and I hope that doesn't mean it's going to be cancelled!) and really, really, really good. Outstanding art, threatening villains, 100% sympathetic protagonist, a well-drawn (drawn=written) supporting cast worth caring about, VERY satisfying dialogue (it's youthful w/o being all HEY THIS IS HOW KIDS TALK KTHKSBYE!)
Captain America = solid gold, except for that one panel where Bucky is young Mel Gibson.
Spider-Man: With Great Power is pretty. Decent all around, but no socks were knocked off.
