6.1 Shopping List

Not sure if it's the shortened holiday week or what, but there doesn't seem to be much coming out tomorrow (as always bitch-slap me if i'm missing something i shouldn't be).  Regardless, i'm a bit stoked for Emissary #1 and the next issue of Ellis' Black Gas, and was extra hype for a split second when i saw Ultimates 2 on Diamond's shipping list...  until i read down the line and saw it was just a poster.  Weak.

EMISSARY #1 - Seems interesting...  And hell, i'm trying something new every week (thanks Guy).
GODLAND #11 - Pull list.  I think the creative team behind Godland is taking a few months off after #12.
THING #7 - Pull list.  One of the only comics on the stands in which the starring cape regularly wears clothes other than his spandex. 
WARREN ELLIS BLACK GAS #3 - Gratuitous gore anyone?  I'm a sucker for a well done zombie story and this one fits the bill so far...

PS - Is Ed McGuiness still drawing Superman Batman?

"Is Ed McGuiness still drawing Superman Batman?"

Nope. McGuiness just singed a Marvel exclusive.

S/B #26 is the all-star jam Sam Loeb tribute issue.

Dave - that's pretty good news... i really like McGuiness' work (esp teamed w/ Loeb). I guess now they'll have the opportunity to work together again since Loeb is exc. Marvel too... any clues as to what they'll be doing?

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.
