Ended up with 15 books.  Go figure.

  • The Movement #1 (Can’t imagine I’m going to like this.  Yet here it is.  In my bag.)
  • Winter Soldier #18 (That’s right: it survived the purge–at least for another month.  Thumb through cinched it.  Nic Klein’s artwork–especially his colors–was the draw here.)

  • Dial H #12 (Hope it comes back down to earth–not that the cover suggests it will.)

    • Snapshot #4 (Had forgotten all about this one.  Good thing I remembered while I was in the shop!  Best thing about it: it’s #4 of 4–which means it’s done and, going forward, I’m left with a lighter list.  Whoot!)
    • Cyborg 009 Preview (For a buck, why not?)
    • Mister X: Eviction #1 (Gorgeous cover.  Inside’s pretty damn gorgeous, too.)

    • Shadowman #0 (Quick flip: lots of chefs, but the broth is still refreshingly aromatic.  Can’t wait to taste it.)
    • Harbinger Wars #2 (Headed into it with realistic expectations.)
    • Indestructible Hulk #7 (Read it.  Better than #6, sure; but I’m still left thinking, “What difference does any of this make?” and “Why do I care?”)
    • Sesame Street #1 (No way I could pass this up.  My daughter loves Cookie Monster and Elmo.  Can’t wait to read it to her.  Really can’t wait until she’s able to read it on her own!)
    • All-New X-Men #11 (Read it.  A bit stuck in the mud–in more ways than one.  Overall, however, not bad.)
    • Ten Grand #1 (Read it.  Have you heard the one about the hitman with a heart who sells his soul to the devil in order to be with his lost love just one more time?  Of course you have.  Will probably give it another issue.)
    • Green Arrow #20 (Read it.  Perhaps one of the worst books I’ve read since I’ve been back in the game.  I just don’t get it.  Why can’t this character catch a friggin’ break?  I’ll tell you what this is further proof of: looks like Lemire is not suited for superhero books.  [See our recent reviews of Rotworld-related Animal Man to see what I’m talking about.])
    • Animal Man #20 (Read it.  Finally free of the Rot and the Red; finally we’re back in Buddy’s head.  That’s the Lemire we know and love!  A bit nervous about the promise for the next issue: the Red and Totems, too?  Just what am I going to do?)

    • Suicide Risk #1 (Read it.  Not terribly exciting.  Not terrible, either.  A little too familiar throughout.)

What did you end up with in your bag?
