Have not done this for a while but since I haven’t written thing in a while, here’s what I just ordered through my mail order service.
ALL NEW X-MEN #20, UNCANNY X-MEN #15-My favorite mainstream superhero books being published now. I don’t know which one I like more but I do know that the fact Brian Bendis is writing these is still flabbergasting to me. I never thought I’d like anything from him. Anyway good to see the first class team sticking around and curious for the X-23/Cyclops relationship. As for Uncanny, more scenes of them clowning SHIELD is what I want.
COFFIN HILL #3-Issue 1 was okay… looked good though.
EMPOWERED VOL. 8-I have this ordered through Amazon the off chance I get it right away compared to my Mail Order service. I NEED IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Empowered. I really fucking love Empowered! 9 Beers with Ninjette one shot might be my fave single issue of the year thus far.
FABLES #136, FAIREST #22-Fables has been an extremely mixed bag of late. Its had good parts but a lot of “meh” parts. I was also close to dropping Fairest but this one has Cinderella so I’m sticking with it.
FATALE #20, VELVET #3-Fatale is my fave Image title. Even though its not exactly on the top of my reading list when I prepare to write its always a pleasure to read. Plus the art by Sean Philips is dynamite. Velvet is the newest series (coming out tomorrow) by Fatale writer/co-creator Ed Burbaker. It reunites him with his captain America artist Steve Epting. While I was not a big fan of that series (it was alright but not for me) Fatale’s been excellent and I like Steve Eptings work so I’m trying it.
GREEN ARROW #26, WONDER WOMAN #26-I pretty much cut all but 3 DC superhero titles, these two being the only ones over issue #6. I had been on and off with GA since the start but Jeff Lemire/Andrea Sorrentino have done a good job with it thus far. Though the changes to Shado I could do without. WW is still a mixed bag with the good being great and the bad flopping from terrible to “I can deal.” Diana is to become the God of War. Interesting…
LADY RAWHIDE #5 (OF 5), VAMPIRELLA SOUTHERN GOTHIC #5 (OF 5)-The first 2 issues Lady Rawhide were okay. The first 2 issues of Southern Gothic were fun.
LAZARUS #6-Very good, thus far.
MAXX MAXXIMIZED #2-I’ve read the Maxx, got them in trades, but am interesting in reading them in a serialized manner. Plus new covers. If you never read Maxx, try it. Its an insane series with incredible art by creator Sam Keith.
MORNING GLORIES #36-I was really high on Morning Glories a year or so ago. Now I’m not sure where I stand.
PRETTY DEADLY #3, UMBRAL #2-Waiting on #1s.
RACHEL RISING #22-Terry Moore’s horror series is still entertaining and still has my favorite comic covers of any series right now
RED SONJA #6 FRISON CVR-I think I’m going to end up with more Jenny Frison covers. Anyway, pretty good for the first 4 issues. No complaints.
REVIVAL #16-Third of the horror series I buy and probably my least favorite but still a thrilling title with lots of mystery. Some twisted stuff in the last issue I read, #14. That last page-damn.
ROCKET GIRL #3-Issue #1 looked great and the story was… um… interesting.
SAGA #17-#2 favorite Image title out right now. Much goodness and great to see the series doing so well. Especially in trade paperbacks. Check out this scifi/fantasy comic.
SUPERMAN WONDER WOMAN #3-The other DC superhero book I’m buying and issue one looked great. I don’t remember what happened in the actual story.
X-MEN #8-The first arc didn’t do anything for me, issue 4 was good, then the crossover hit. So Now its time to really judge the book.
