Shopping list

And lo it came to pass, another new comic day!

I'm looking forward to this one, chiefly because of this...

Dan Dare #1 of #7
Garth Ennis gets his bloodsoaked mitts on a British icon and, as you can see, our friends across the pond are so underwhelmed that it doesn't even rate a clickable link on comiclist. For shame.

No matter, I'm sure enough of them will be attracted by Ennis's name to pick it up. Hopefully it'll be worth buying.

With Ennis at the helm I predict Digby will have been buggered by issue #5 and that Dare will have ripped the Mekon's head off and pissed down his neckhole in time for issue #7.


Fear Agent Hatchet Job #1 (Of 4)

More Sci-Fi shenanigans. Doesn't quite feel like the genuine article without Tony Moore on pencils, but still likely to be a cut above 90% of the other comics out there.

Green Lantern Corps #18

OK, so the Sinestro War is running out of steam. And yes, the last issue of Corps was a bit of a wet fart, but when cosmic push comes to shove it's still going to packed full of aliens punching holes in each other's heads, and that my comic loving chums is enough to keep this emotional retard happy.

Marvel Atlas #1 (of 2)

Nyahhh. Detailed surveys of Latveria, floorplans of Castle Doom and geographical titbits concerning Wakanda. Utterly, utterly pointless. But I love this sort of nonsense.

Ultimate Spider-Man #116

The Goblin v Spidey smackdown in #115, proved that Immonen was an inspired choice to take over from Bagley on pencils. He's perfect for Spidey and has freshened things up considerably. Perhaps it's also time to start thinking about giving someone else a shot at writing the book. Kirkman anyone?

Back Issue #25

Love the idea of this magazine, but am usually disappointed by the articles themselves. Still worth it for the odd flashes of inspiration and nuggets of trivia lurking amongst the sludge.
