Comic Book Haul

Latest comic book haul from Criminal Records!  I’m pretty pleased if I do say so myself.  

I’m really excited to check out Jeff Lemire’s new project Plutona, though I do need to find issue #2.  Bitch Planet Book One – finally!!  Lumberjanes without Noelle Stevenson is tragic but I will persevere.  Jughead gets his own book yay though I wish I had a better variant cover, that sounds douchey and I’m sorry.  Also a side character finally getting his own comic – Chewbacca!!  And 3 biggies from Marvel – Secret Wars, A-Force, and Ms. Marvel!

What’s been on your pull list lately?

Comic Blue Balls

This past weekend I was in NC for my best friend’s bridal shower.  Sunday I drove the seven hours back to Atlanta alternating between listening to Jim Dale (HP7) and singing into my hairbrush to stave off boredom.  After FINALLY arriving home, Mark and I decided to go to Little 5 for comic books and some grub.  Mark wanted to get dinner first and then what happened?  THE COMIC BOOK STORE WAS CLOSED!!! 😓😓😓   I almost cried but my friend Sarah made me laugh and I resurrected from my depression.  I made it to Criminal Records after work on Monday and these three beauties were in my cubby:  Descender #6 – This issue ‘concludes’ the first arc of this amazing series from Image.  I say concludes but it ends on a major cliff hanger!! Arg need more Tim-21 now!!  Jeff Lemire is magic!

Orphan Black #5 aka the Rachel Duncan issue. I loved it!! There was so much great backstory of Rachel as a child and how she became self aware following the death of her parents.  AND it introduced a new clone!!  Downside – no new issue to November 😱😱😱

Secret Wars #5 – I’m trying guys, really trying to get into Secret Wats but everything is so detailed and complicated and interconnected. After it’s all concluded they need to publish one massive volume of all the Secret Wars multiverse comic books.

So what have you been reading? Hopefully no comic blue balls for you 😉

On Sundays We Read Comics

Finally, Finally, FINALLY! A new Ms. Marvel (#17) featuring Captian Marvel!! This issue was far too short for my liking and while Lockjaw didn’t make an appearance there were so many kitties!! 
I decided I needed to see what all this Secret Wars business is and all I can say is I’m sorta still confused – haha.  I do read A-Force and Runaways and I get that these are a product of the Secret Wars but it is a little confusing since every character ever created is featured.  I’m obviously gonna stick it out but I definitely feel hindered by my newbie-ness.

And the odd man out of  the group – one of these things is not like the others – Issue #2 of We Stand On Guard.  Good follow up to #1, these soldiers are dropping like flies though! I like the switch between the past and present to get more backstory on what the eff happened between USA and Canada.
