What I'm Getting Thursday

Where the holidays interrupt the normal Wednesday process and move the delivery day till Thursday for two weeks. With being as busy during the holidays as I get, Thursday is just fine.

52 - What a shocker. Still a good book, we are now about 2/3 of the way finished.

Batman - More of the Ostrander/Mandrake story. So far this has been a good little story.

Batman and the Mad Monk - Matt Wagner's story broken into two mini-series, of the early years of Batman. Legends sales are way off, so doing a mini-series highlights this material.

Blue Beetle - Really starting to enjoy this character.

Boys - Okay the last issue made me hand around, this issue will determine if it was worth it.

Connor Hawke - Part 2 of a six issue mini-series, that feels pointless and adding nothing to the character. But I like Chuck Dixon's writing and he makes almost any book a fun read.

Creeper - The Creeper has been a moderate success in re-launching the character so far.

Crossing Midnight - Mike Carey and Jim Fern made me want to come back for more, let's see if issue #2 delivers.

Detective - The last issue was great, this has been an enjoyable book since one year later.

Flash - Is the new writer/artist team here yet?

Guy Gardner - A waste of paper, but I'll get issue #2 of 2.

Hawkgirl - Chaykin's art and the first storyline did not work on this book. It has gotten better, but I want to know where is HAWKMAN!!!!

Jack of Fables - New story arc. Very good book so far.

JSA Classified - This is part 2 of a Dr. Midnight arc. Great character.

Justice - Hard to follow as a comic, should be good when put together in one book.

JLA - Yawn! - Could Metzler slow this down a little, I almost think a story is forming.

Loveless - Should be good. Is Ruth the new Sheriff?

Supergirl - I'm falling off this book now. Too many bad issues and too few good ones.

Supergirl and the LOSH - CAN'T WAIT. Love this book now.

Superman/Batman - In order to write this book you have to submit a convoluted and unintelligible script to get the assignment.

Uncles Sam and the Freedom Fighters - Really an good book, that with stronger art would have been great.

Wetworks - Almost ready to drop this title. All darkness and nothing really grabbing me.

Anita Blake Vampire Hunter - Picked this up for my daughter Gwen and the Brett Booth art drew me into the book. So far not a bad story. I hear that this book is selling to a different market then many comics, which is always good news for the industry.

Annihilation - This has been a surprisingly good mini-series. Of course I love seeing old "B" and "C" list characters in books and Star Lord has to be a "D" lister.

Astonishing X-Men - This series has been a disappointment. Big names, with no real punch.

Daredevil - Should be a good issue as we are supposed to finally meet the person who has been freeling with DD.

Heroes for Hire - Fun book.

Iron Fist - First issue was cool (except for the 44 pages of ad and 10 pages of story - a slight exaggeration), looking forward to issue #2.

Masterworks All Winners Squad - Should be lots of losers and a few Winners squad. Golden Age Marvel madness.

Nextwave - Great book.

Ultimate Fantastic Four - Does anyone understand what is going on in this book?

Ultimate Power - Does anyone care that this book is being published? What if they had a big cross-over and nobody cared?

Winter Solider Special - Could be good.

Wolverine Origins - This book is on month by month basis as to whether I get the next issue or not.

X-Men - Better then Uncanny and Astonishing X-Men.

30 Days of Night - A new mini-series of the vampire series.

Wolfskin - Part 2 of Ellis' barbarian book from Avatar.

That's it for this week. I believe that leaves 5 books on the racks that I didn't get this week.
