Holy Crap, I'm Broke
Crisis Aftermath: The Spectre #1 (DC) - Picking this up for Cliff Chiang's stunning artwork, and also to check in on the fate of Gotham Central's Crispus Allen.
Lucifer #74 - One to go. Vertigo's best title wraps up.
Seven Soldiers Of Victory, Vol 3 TP (DC) - Ah, I'll finally get to start reading Frankenstein, which looked like the best of the seven.
Superman/Batman #26 (DC) - Don't really have any interest in this series, but the gangbang of awesome artists is enough to get me to at least pick this up and look.
Emissary #1 (Image) - Image and Jim Valentino bring back a project for the legendary Small Gods creative team of Jason Rand and Juan Ferreyra, bringing the new book I'm most excited about in a week jam-packed with exciting new books.
Five Fists Of Science GN (Image) - At long-fucking-last. Huge preview online here.
Liberty Meadows #37 (Image) - This'll be my first issue. I just can't resist Frank Cho's women anymore. This looks like the title to follow, far as I can tell, and the first two trades are getting reprinted soon, so this'll give me a nice idea of whether or not I should pick 'em up.
Books Of Doom #6 (Marvel) - Curious to see how this wraps up, though I think it's been the most underwhelming of Brubaker's Marvel work thus far. Now Daredevil, on the other hand, is blowing me away every fucking month.
Incredible Hulk #95 (Marvel) - Greg Pak continues to write a fun, back-to-basics Hulk story full of smashing and wanting to be left alone.
Punisher: The Tyger (Marvel) - Sweet Jesus, this is gonna be good.
Thing #7 (Marvel) - I shed a tear to see this one go, but at least it's been fun.
Ultimate Fantastic Four #30 (Marvel) - Millar's most recent arc ("President Thor") was, to me, the best of his entire run, so I'm looking forward to how he builds from here.
Skyscrapers Of The Midwest #3 (Adhouse Books) - Continues the excellent run of Josh Cotter's heartbreaking series; the Isotope (whose Mini-Comics award went to Cotter a few years ago) features an eight-page preview here.
Mouse Guard #3 (Archaia Studio Press) - Am I actually more excited about this than I am about Emissary? It's a close call, one way or the other. If you've been hanging out, you know how much I've been grooving on this series.
Hero Squared #1 (Ongoing, Boom! Studios) - Giffen does know how to bring the funny sometimes, so I'm looking forward to checking out his sense of humor in a super-hero context.
War Of The Worlds: Second Wave #3 (Boom! Studios) - As I've said (twice), i think this is the best book in the Boom! stable. Can't wait to see what's happening next. Michael Alan Nelson is a writer to watch, I'm tellin' ya now.
Helios: In With The New #3 (Dakuwaka Productions) - I did a double-take on the $5 cover price, but then realized the issue is extra-length. This is written by Small Gods' Jason Rand, which is the main selling point for me, but it's also been a fun superheroes-meet-SHIELD sort of concept. A new mini launches in a few months, so the story continues... excellent.
Battlestar Galactica #0 (Dynamite Entertainment) - Thanks, Fossen: I'd have missed this, not having seen the series yet, but two-bits for a Greg Pak comic sounds like a deal to me.
Uptight #1 (Fantagraphics) - Don't remember why, exactly, but this caught my eye in Previews a few months ago, and it's only $2.50, so I'll likely take a look.
My Inner Bimbo #1 (Oni) - I'll be tradewaiting this, 'cause that's how I picked up the first in this loosely connected trilogy (Ojo),
Abadazad Books 1 and 2 (Hyperion) - I wasn't big on The Stardust Kid, but this first collaboration between J.M. DeMatteis and Mike Ploog was really goddamned promising. Glad to see it return; I won't be able to pick these up this week (Christ, look up), but they're on my list fo' sho'.
