Pirate Club #8, $2.95

The digest collection of this caught my eye a week or two ago. Might finally pick it up.

Black Heart Irregulars #2, $3.00

The first issue was kinda fun, “like The Losers‘ less-sophisticated, but well-intentioned, younger brother,” so I’ll give this one a look.

Is this how Dark Horse stays a premier publisher?

All Star Superman #1, $2.99
Batman And The Monster Men #1 (Of 6), $2.99

Sorry, but Superman just doesn’t do it for me. It’ll be fun reading the reviews, though, to see if the Morrison fans actually cover the story itself or simply take the opportunity to proclaim him as the greatest thing to happen to comics. Ever. Again. Matt Wagner on Batman looks fun, though.

Forgotten Realms Dark Elf Exile Walpole Cvr B #1 (Of 3), $8.95

The normally priced cover was misprinted and won’t arrive for another week or two. I’ll wait.

Death Jr TPB, $14.99

I have the individual issues, but if you missed them, buy this! It’s a great read.

X-Men Deadly Genesis #1 (Of 6), $3.99

Wow! I don’t think there’s ever been a week where my Marvel AND DC pulls were so light. This one’s a maybe, purely because I like Brubaker.

Lucifers Garden Of Verses Vol 1 Devil On Fever Street GN (AA), $8.95
Lucifers Garden Of Verses Vol 2 Darlin Niki SC, $8.95

Rich Watson put me on to this in his first “What’s A Nubian?“. The power of the internet!

Local #1 (Of 12), $2.99

DMZ was mildly disappointing, and I hated DEMO, so why am I even considering picking this one up? For some reason, I want to like Wood. I think that’s the damn internet’s fault, too!

Back Issue #13, $5.95
Comics Buyers Guide Feb 2006 #1613, $5.99

Picked up both of these last week, and while I haven’t gotten to Back Issue yet, CBG was a surprising disappointment. It’s Vs. coverage – which I was curious about since I’ve just started playing – was a bit shallow, the main feature reading like a rephrasing of the rule book, and I’ve found myself only skimming the majority of the reviews lately. Couple of good columnists, but is that enough to keep buying it?

One thought on “On The Shelves: 11/16/05

  1. I actually liked Local a little better than DMZ, which was the opposite of what I expected. Your mileage may vary of course. I didn’t think there was anything that bad about DMZ, but the unique construction of the story in Local was fairly effective and interesting.

    And yes, apparently I have given up on writing in my own blog in favor of commenting on yours. Not sure how or why that happened.
