New Comics for May 7

We are officially on week one of staying home to get our comics. It is very scary for me until I get my first order from Discount Comic Book Service. I have heard so many good things that I know I shouldn't worry, but I still have a bit of trepidation.

This week marks the countdown to Emerald City Comicon, which starts Saturday and runs through Sunday. Located at the Convention Center in Seattle, this is sure to be a fantastic show. During the week I am planning on focusing on upcoming events at the show and my personal musings about what I expect. Stay with me here for the fun!

Here is my list of books for the week.

Countdown to Mystery #7 (of 8)
Detective Comics #844
Nightwing #144
Franklin Richards Not So Secret Invasion #1 - pictured! I love this cover.
Mighty Avengers #13
X-Factor: Quick and Dead
The Boys #18

That is my very small list! I am so excited to have finally made cutbacks to a manageable level though I confess I will probably pick up a copy of Secret Invasion #2 and Rann Thanagar Holy War #1 at the show if I see them. My shop also missed Wildguard Insider #1 last week, so I will also look for that.

Not much tonight. The hubby and I went grocery shopping and picked up supplies for the show so I am running late again! Take care and I will see you here tomorrow!

Wow, you really have whittled your list down. Another The Boys is always a good thing, and I like the title of X-Factor there. Hadn't heard of it. Is it a special one shot?

Eaglewing, I was shocked at how small my list was too! It is good and bad. :-) The X-Factor book is a spotlight on Quicksilver, so that should be interesting. It didn't get a lot of play, so it is one of those "downlow" picks of the week for me.

Darick Robertson will be at the show I am going to so I am hoping to pester him about The Boys! I love that book. Last issue's awkward Hughie moment had me rolling!

Take care!
