Looking ahead to Wolverine #42

I've a man-crush on Humberto Ramos (BTW - who doesn't love the name "Humberto"?) and i'm def looking forward to adding Wolverine to my pull list again now that my man is on the art (too, too bad they didn't also enlist his oft partner P Jenkins to write)... check out a few preview pages and more at Newsarama.

PS if you have any interest in Ramos, let me know and i'll give you a sweet little list of his previous works that i've enjoyed (who knows, some of this stuff may hook you like it did me)...

That's some pretty sweet pencil work. Feel free to give me a couple of titles to add to my list. If they're collected in TPB, even better.

Rob - if you like superhero books, def pick up jenkins and ramos run on Spectacular Spider-Man (TPs v1: The Hunger and v2: Countdown). The Hunger is one of my all time fav Spidey stories.

If you're looking for something a bit different (more along the detective/crime noir path) then take a look at the Revelations TP when it comes out (shortly?).

Actually, I've been wanting to pick up a few Marvel trades so I'll definitely put that down on the list. Spidey definitely perks my interest. Thanks.

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.
