7.12 Shopping List

Been so friggin' busy the past week or so w/ my granddad and cousin in town for garpa's 90th birthday (neither has ever been to the east coast).  Didn't even get a chance to grab my books last week so should have an overflowing box tomorrow...

I'm buying...

ESCAPISTS #1 (OF 6) - In.
HELLBOY JOURNAL (O/A) - What is this? I'm usually pre-in for anything HB.
DMZ #9 (MR) - Pull list. Getting better and better each issue.
EXTERMINATORS #7 (MR) - Pull list.
IRON WEST GN - In Image's own words: Preston Struck is an incompetent outlaw with a heart of fool’s gold. He discovers an army of metal men bent on destroying central California. While Struck avoids any form of heroism, he gets a little help from a magical old shaman and his sidekick Sasquatch. Struck is going to need all the help he can get because he’s deputized just as the mechanical men have take over the railroad and are mutating the train into a giant demonic iron monster.
WALKING DEAD #29 (MR) - Pull list.
GHOST RIDER #1 - Hope this lives up Ennis and Crane's 05 mini.

Next week...

PS - Did anyone read Brubaker's first Uncanny X-Men issue last week?

Hmm, that Iron West sounds cool. Missed it in my own roundup. Will have to check it out tomorrow.

"HELLBOY JOURNAL (O/A) - What is this? I'm usually pre-in for anything HB."

I do believe it's a blank journal, i.e. 128 blank pages, spiral bound with a Hellboy cover:

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.
