my big book of little catastrophes
I ate WHAT?
my comics list 
27th-Aug-2007 02:37 pm
My comic shop is finally instituting an ongoing subscription list. Previously I had to order all the titles I wanted for each month. What a PITA! I missed more than a few issues because of that stupid system.

So here's my list of titles I'm ordering. I wonder if there's anything I'm missing out on. Any recommendations?

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season Eight

  • Justice League of America

  • Wonder Woman

  • Fables

  • Jack of Fables

  • Midnighter

  • Mighty Avengers

  • New Avengers

  • Immortal Iron Fist

  • Ms. Marvel

  • She-Hulk

  • Thor

  • Astonishing X-Men

  • Nexus

I used to read Nexus way back when - so long ago I've pretty much forgotten it all. I'm giving it a chance anyway. Whedon continues to please with Astonishing and Buffy. The new-ish Immortal Iron Fist is a nice treat - I've always liked the Daniel Rand character, and the new stories are pretty creative. The other Marvel stuff is getting boring again, so I might drop it all except for X-Men and She-Hulk (which I find amusing). And the Fables storyline is still interesting enough to keep me buying. The rest, well, we'll see.

I should put together a "comic shop owner's pull list" There a several titles I like that you've missed. The question is whether I would buy them if I didn't have free access.

What's the name of the store you go to?

I'd love to hear what you think I'm missing. My taste is somewhat unpredictable, so be warned.

I shop at Comix Experience. Not a perfect place, but 99% of their biz is comics, which means it doesn't take a back seat to toys etc. Your t-shirts are so much cooler than theirs.

Man, I bet it's over a year since you left a comment in my LJ. Probably my fault though. Good to see ya!

Okay...so what was that? "Probably my fault though."

I'm going to have to come out there and school ya.

I just meant I haven't been writing anything interesting in my LJ for ages. Didn't want to lay a guilt trip on you for making a comment, heh.

School me? Is that Texan for beat my ass? *runs and hides*

Thanks for reminding me about Thor. I'd started it, but I missed it on the checklist.

What do you think of Iron Fist? Call me silly, but I think the elimination fights could end up being pretty fun. I also like that he's got that book now and can level up on his powers. If this story arc is anything like the last, he's going to be mostly reacting to things. I hope he manages to find his footing and do something proactive soon.
