New Comics for September 19

Penance: Relentless #1
Originally uploaded by Heidi Meeley
Today was a busy day at work, but a good one. I don't mind keeping busy; in fact I prefer it. It makes the day go faster and keeps my mind sharp. The fact that the weather was gorgeous didn't hurt either. Hopefully you had a nice day as well!

My list of new books is once again ugly. I am trying to be better about my selections, so when I filled out November Previews, I was pretty choosy. Jim cut back as well, so we are trying not to be tied to buying every crossover tie-in. Hopefully this will help assuage feelings of anger at the industry in the future.

At any rate, here is my list of this week's books!

Army@Love #7
Birds of Prey #110
Catwoman #71
Checkmate #18
Countdown #32
Ex Machina #30
Flash #232
Green Arrow Black Canary Wedding Special #1
JLA Hitman #1 (of 2) - the book I am dying to read! Seriously.
Shadowpact #17
Tales of the Sinestro Corps Parallax #1
Cyblade Pilot Season #1
Dynamo 5 #7
Captain America #30
New X-Men #42
Penance Relentless #1 (of 5) - pictured
Spider-Man Red Sonja #2 (of 5)
Wolverine Origins #17
World War Hulk #4 (of 5)

That is the list! There are a few new things to try as well as some books getting a lookover to be booted.

I am off to watch Deal or No Deal's season premiere. I get as big of a kick watching my hubby's reactions as I do watching the show.

Have a great night!

After a ginormous week last week, here's what I've got on tap for this week:

Flash #232 (not really grooving The Incredibles thing so far...but I'll stick with it for now).

Tales of the Sinestro Corps Parallax #1: The Sinestro Corps storyline has been almost perfect so far. It's good to see that a grand, sweeping tale can be both exciting AND understood! Whoda' thunk it?

Captain America #30: Still sticking with this, but I'm getting a little antsy. Let's get to Bucky's attempt on Tony Stark's life already! Enough fillibustering!

Still not sure on the Arrow/Canary wedding thing. As my daughter might say "He is SO not for her".

interesting list. Even though the last Wolverine Origins was really a ripoff of someone else's story, I still enjoyed it and am interested in where its going.

And that Deal or No Deal - funny how some people push it past the point of reason when the whole thing is just complete dumb luck. It'd be one thing if there was any actual skill involved, but it's like watching a social experiment about common sense vs greed. I don't watch it often, but I like seeing the ones who lose it all and wind up with like $50 :)

Actually, there might be more skill to it than you think.

As someone who's watched the show pretty much since the start of it, I'm noticing things, like patterns, in the "randomly amounted cases." Certain ways the big amounts are placed from the small one and even some cases that are more likely to have small amounts and which ones are more likely to have large ones. I'm actually trying to see if there is a system I can dope out from it.

I'm not saying that I could make it a sure fire thing to get the one million dollars, but if i was ever on the show, I'd use this knowledge to be one of those who ends up with more than 50 bucks. A LOT more. ;)

Mark, your list looks very awesome! You have good taste! I am on the fence about Flash, but I am sticking in there for now.

As for the wedding, I am going to get it because I love the Canary. Hopefully it won't upset me!! :-)

I can't wait to see the comics tomorrow!

Eaglewing, I just re-read a few issues of Wolverine Origins and it held up better the second time around. The annual I just browsed through...

As for Deal or No deal, I will let my hubby take that one!

That'd be wild if there actually was a subtle system. Especially if it was intentional and people didn't get it and were still going home with $50. What would be funnier is if it was more like human nature and the people organizing the cases fell into some kind of rut of repetition and someone scored on it :)
