12.21 Shopping List

It's the book day before xmas and all through the house, not a writer (or artist) is stirring... Still counfounded that Dec is such a light month when i would expect it to be heavy, heavy, but no worries - i'd drive all the way to the LCS for Ultimate Hulk vs. Wolverine ALONE today. Throw in a new Conan and Goon (which seems to be a long time coming) and i'm just fine overall.

DARK HORSE
CONAN #23 (MR) - Pull list. Start of a new arc and the death knell of Busiek as our esteemed writer. Can't wait to read the forthcoming Mignola arc though, and supposedly this new guy they're getting to write Conan comes highly acclaimed.
GOON #15 - Pull list. It's been a while Mr. Goon, we missed you.

DC
Nada :(

IMAGE
INTIMIDATORS #1 - This one caught my eye in B&W on the distro list - anyone know anything about it? Am i in?

MARVEL
INCREDIBLE HULK #90 - Don't we all have those titles in our stack that we keep buying, and buying, and buying primarily because of some deep-seeded childhood fascination for the character(s) even though the book itself is kind of crappy?
ULTIMATE WOLVERINE VS HULK #1 (OF 6) - SIMPLY CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS. Liu is a friggin' beast.

OTHER
Elk's Run #4 - Yes sir. Thanks for introducing me to this MF. Anyone who hasn't picked this up... should (get the bumper).

NEXT WEEK
BPRD THE BLACK FLAME #5 (OF 6), SILENT DRAGON #6 (OF 6), NEW AVENGERS #14, SENTRY #4 (OF 8), THING #2, THOR BLOOD OATH #6 (OF 6), WOLVERINE #37, X-FACTOR #2

I'm recently back reading after a 15 year comics hiatus.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
