7.26 Shopping List

Light week overall but i'll make the trip for Powers and Daredevil. Plus Godland's back after what seemed a very brief hiatus. I've got this strange feeling i missing out on something this week in particular... What are you guys getting that i'm sleeping on?

I'm buying...

LOVELESS #9 (MR) - It took a while for this title to swing me (i stuck w/ it in the early going primarily because it's seemingly the only ongoing western book around), but you know what? i'm actually starting to like it.
GODLAND #12 - Been a fun read since #1.
DAREDEVIL #87 - One of the best books out right now... period.
POWERS #19 (MR) - By now you know how i feel about Powers. Me lovie.

Next week...

I'm a little bit disappointed about Loveless and dropped it after the first arc. Nice to hear that the story is becoming better. Maybe I'm going to give the book another try.

Philos - you and me both man... i stuck this out through 8 so-so issues mainly because it was the only western around. it *seems* to be showing promise though. i figure i'll give it a couple more issues.

I stuck with Loveless for issues 1-8, but won't be getting nine. I expected Azarello writing a western would rock and for a few brief panels here and there it did. So Loveless is gone and I'm anxiously awaiting the new Lone Ranger in september.

perhaps i'll still get the Loveless trades (that's how I'm reading 100 bullets).

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.
