11.8 Shopping List

DMZ, Cross Bronx, and Damned are all i need to get motivated this week. As a side note, I'm halfway through Darren Aronofsky and Kent Williams The Fountain and man is the artwork (painting) in this thing fantastic (obvious to me now why it was awarded and Eisner). I don't push many GNs on my wife but i'll def be encouraging her to read this one (besides the artwork the love story will appeal :) Hell i can't WAIT for the movie now...

DMZ #13 (MR) - I've said it 100x before and i'll say it again: DMZ seems to get stronger and stronger (which is a blessing in today's ADD influenced comics environment).
CROSS BRONX #3 (OF 4) (MR) - I only wish this were an ongoing... hopefully it will turn into one (anyone know how its selling?).
ETERNALS #5 (OF 7) - I'm loving this mini but i may have to forego this issue since i missed the last one (and just keep an eye out for the trade).
PUNISHER #40 (MR) - Pull list.
WISDOM #1 (OF 6) (MR) - Anyone know anything about this? I'm always in the market for new sci-fi and this sounds interesting...
DAMNED #2 (MR) - I meant to review #1 (along w/ about 20 other flops from the last month) but never got around to it. In a few words: I loved it. Prohibition era gangsterism with an otherworldly twist? Oh yes.

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.
