Shrinkage.

George Costanza feared it.  I embrace it.

Yank It!

  • Batman #19 (DC): Has been a pull-list stalwart since my ReStart.  Would hate to make it a comicday decision, but looks like we’re headed in that direction–especially if #19 was any indication of what’s to come.
  • Archer & Armstrong #9 (Valiant): Remains my palate cleanser.
  • Harbinger #11 (Valiant): Always a book to look forward to–more so now that we’re in the midst of Harbinger Wars.

Me Pluck!

  • Saga #12 (Image): There are no words to describe–  OK.  OK.  There are plenty of words.  Just read my latest Microviews if you don’t believe me.  Not only as good as it gets; quite possibly as good as it’s ever gotten.  UPDATE: Toss in a little controversy over the screening of some in-your-face oral storytelling and, come on, now you’ve got to grab it!

  • The Rocketeer: Hollywood Horror #3 (IDW): There’s nothing limited about this limited series.  It’s Hollywood magic.  Terrific stuff.
  • Sex #2 (Image): Felt kind of let down after the last time.  I’ve lowered my expectations accordingly and cautiously say, “Yes.”
  • Sledgehammer 44 (Dark Horse): I “open[ed] up my fruit cage” for the first one.  “Fruit [wasn’t] as sweet as can be,” but I’ll leave it open, nevertheless.  Kind of pointless to ditch a two-issue mini halfway through.
Sledgehammer 44 #2

  • Uncanny X-Men #4 (Marvel): This is evidence of my faith in Bendis.  I know someone who thinks it’s the faith of a fool; and, believe me, I get it; but All-New is getting better; so you–yes, YOU–never know.  Take my four bucks, Mr. Comic Shop Man!  Let me willingly court regret!

I’ll Believe It When I See It

  • Secret Service #6 (Marvel): I think I remember #5.  I think I liked it.  I know I don’t give a crap about this.  Damn my curse.
