8.23 Shopping List

Not sure if this is worth posting so late in the week but shit i wrote it so might as well hit "publish" right? Am i missing anything you guys are hype about?

ABSOLUTE DARK KNIGHT HC - I won't be getting this this week, but hope to get a hold of it someday (it's chillin' on my Amazon wish list). Thanks (all) for talking to me about it a while back...
BATMAN AND THE MAD MONK #1 (OF 6) - Isn't this by the same team that brought us Batman and the Monster Men (which i enjoyed)?
DMZ #10 (MR) - There was a rumble that this came out last week and i was salty i missed it... but here it is. Can't wait.
FEAR AGENT #7 - I'd happily head to the LCS for DMZ and Fear Agent alone. Hype.
DAREDEVIL #88 - Oh yeah and a new DD. Not many comics this week but some GOOD ones. Interested to get deeper into Bru's second arc.
ETERNALS #3 (OF 6) - We're getting our money's worth w/ Eternals so far... The issues are jam-packed w/ story (and some solid JRJ artwork).

I hit the LCS yesterday but FA and DMZ weren't out of the box yet! But I did snag Bat and the Mad Monk, been waiting for this since I saw it in Previews. Hope it is good. Late.

yup, Walking Dead was out this week (I finally found a decent LCS after moving 4 months ago). I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on it when you get it. One aspect of the issue caught me completely off guard and I want to know if it's just because I wasn't paying enough attention in previous issues or if Kirkman did it on purpose. I also picked up Elephantmen #2 from Image (I got the first issue and it was definitely worth a second look). And Batman #656(?), I like Morrison enough that I'll follow him on a title I don't normally have any interest in.

Has anyone read the Batman and Mad Monk #1? I guess I am out of the loop on Batman. It didn't feel like a "new" arc. Maybe someone can fill me in on the concept behind this 6-issue mini. Thanks.

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.
