Big week, that’s for sure.  Ended up with fourteen books.  Here they are in the order they came out of the bag:

  • Bedlam #3 (Still a We’ll see.  I’m hoping Spencer continues to plunge deeper than a dagger into the heart of evil.)

  • Harbinger #8 (It’s been good from the get-go, but even better of late.)
  • X-O Manowar #9 (Planet Death?  Sounds welcoming.)
  • Avengers #3 (Opena’s art’s the draw for me through three issues now.  I hope Hickman can catch up; otherwise…)
  • Battlefields: The Green Fields Beyond #3 (Simply great–or just made to look that way by Garth Ennis.)
  • Mind MGMT #7 (New story arc, same gorgeous art.  Not reading it?  Why not?  It’s so different from anything you’re reading right now.  And it just feels different in the hand, you know?  No, you don’t know.  Ugh!  Get with the program, man!  Pick it up and see for yourself!)

  • Winter Solider #14 (After this, down a Brubaker book.  My pull-list is poorer for it.)
  • Wonder Woman #16 (Thumb-through: Hmm.  Tough to tell.  Needs a read.)
  • Batwoman #16 (Wowowowowowowowow!  Haven’t read it, but turned to and stared at every spread, every page, every panel–when there were panels, anyway.  Yeah, Williams III more than makes up for last month.  Unbelievable.  I’m actually thinking that I should just bag the damn thing.  Reading it might ruin it.)

  • Revival #6 (Found #5 to be a bit underwhelming.   Judging this issue by the cover alone, I’m like Sew what?  Heh.)

  • Stumptown #5 (I don’t even have the first 3!  The combo of Rucka and Southworth is that compelling.  They’re in a groove not unlike the one carved out by Brubaker and Phillips.  Not to be passed up.  Someone find me the first 3!)
  • FF #3 (Wonder how long I’ll stick with this.)
  • TMNT: The Secret History of the Foot Clan #2 (#1 was a pleasant surprise from Mateus Santolouco.  Wouldn’t you know that I’m actually looking forward to this one.  In fact, I had to visit my mistress–the other shop, for those of you who haven’t been following my extra-comical exploits–in order to score it.)

And the only one I wasn’t planning on picking up:

  • Young Avengers #1 (The buzz is so big it hit me as soon as I walked into the shop.  Flipped through it.  Figured What the hell?)

Time to find some time.  Otherwise, I’ll be sitting on this pile for a while.

What did you get in your bag today?

Turning pages,
