It was a long day today at work. Due to people being out sick I ended up working a 13 hour day. I am a bit tired and crabby so bear with me.

Here is my list of new stuff for the week:

Samurai: Heaven & Earth 2 #3 (of 5) - cover pictured
100 Bullets #81
52 Week 43
American Virgin #12
Blue Beetle #12
Connor Hawke Dragon's Blood #4 (of 6)
Firestorm the Nuclear Man #33
JSA Classified #23
Justice #10
Noble Causes #27
Black Panther #25
Daredevil #94
Eternals #7 (of 7)
Runaways #24- my last issue, as a new creative team is coming on.
Wisdom #3 (of 6)
Wolverine #512
X-Factor #16
X-Men #196- I have decided to get this through issue 200. From there, it may be dropped.
Devi #8
Fallen Angel #13
John Woos Seven Brothers #5
Snakewoman #8

Several of the books I am getting are mini-series, and because there is an end, I am collecting them to their logical conclusion.

Drops this week:
Hawkgirl #61- I just can't afford to wait for this book to turn the corner and it makes me sad.
Supergirl and the Legion of Super Heroes #27- I have lost interest since Supergirl showed up.

Already dropped:
Action Comics #846
Flash the Fastest Man Alive #9
Green Lantern #17
Jack of Fables #8
JLA Classified #25
Darkness Level 2 #2
New Excalibur #17
The piece of dog poo that is WIZARD

That's my list for the week. Any suggestions on more books to drop or any arguments for books to keep?

Have a great evening!

wow, I'm buying none of thsoe except Samurai: Heaven & Earth .

John Holland said...

I'm thinking of dropping 7 Brothers. I loved it at first, but it's not doing much for me lately. It seems to be falling into more typical storyline than I thought. I haven't decided yet, what have you been thinking of it recently?

Nick said...

You might wanna stick with the Flash, Guggenheim is taking over writing duties with #9, so there is a good chance it's gonna get better.

Heidi Meeley said...

Swinebread, that just tells me I need to visit your blog more and see what you are reading! Maybe I can find some new stuff.

Heidi Meeley said...

John, I am right on the fence with you about 7 Brothers. The concept is great, and I love John Woo and Garth Ennis, but it has been really borderline for me as well. I have it ordered for the next two months, so this issue is the kicker as to whether I will order it for May.

You will have to let me know what you think as well and maybe we can do a joint drop!! Heehee.

Heidi Meeley said...

Nick, thank you for letting me know that. I may have to go grab last month's issue and finish that run so I am up to speed so to speak! It never hurts to try a book when a new creative team comes on.

Thank you again!

Greg said...

Um, isn't this the last issue of 7 Brothers, as it is a mini-series? Or so I thought. It hasn't been solicited recently in Previews, so I'm thinking it's done. I could be wrong.

Lisa said...

You've got a few that are close to ending - Samurai, Connor H. and Justice. Eternals is ended. So that will shorten up your list a bit right there.

I'd say stick with Black Panther to see how that flows into the Fantastic Four thing. Daredevil is GREAT. I have heard that Fallen Angel was going to be canceled, but I keep seeing it in Previews, so I guess it's still hanging on--It's a pretty decent comic.

I stopped reading Firestorm and Blue Beetle a while ago - just not enough time to read them and I didn't find them to be all that great. But of course they could all get good again once we're done with 52 and the DCU can pick up the pace again.

Heidi Meeley said...

Greg, that is a great question. I was pretty sure it was a series, but I have been wrong before. I will go check on the Virgin website and get back to you!

Heidi Meeley said...

Lisa, I was happy to see how many titles I have ending soon for sure. It will help my budgeting!

I am pretty sure I will stick with Black Panther. I am intrigued by the book and am curious to see how it will dovetail into Fantastic Four, though I haven't been getting that particular book since I got concerned that Sue and Reed were breaking up. It sounds now like they aren't so I will possibly pick it back up.

Firestorm is a book I am buying to the end because it was cancelled. Blue Beetle I am really on the fence about. I appreciate knowing your opinion about those titles, because I value your thoughts.

I just wish I could win the lottery so I could buy EVERYTHING!
Hee hee.

Heidi Meeley said...

Greg, I can't tell by looking at their site, so I will check with my retailer tomorrow and see what they can find out!

Have a great night!

I would drop Blue Beetle it really seems to be going nowhere fast and is kind of listless. I also dropped Black Panther this month simply because it can't seem to stand on its own two feet but needs constant support from crossovers like Civil War and FF. Also the art is fairly poor lately.
