This might help us all know what people are reading, what we think might be good, or open our eyes to titles we may have missed.

My Pull List for 6/6/12

Earth 2 #2
G.I. Combat Vol 2 #2
Batman #1 Annual (Came out last week and I missed it)
Epic Kill #2
Secret #2
Thief Of Thieves #5
Harbinger Vol 2 #1


Maybes/Might look at
Swimsuit Steampunk #1

I think this is a great idea. I am always looking for new and interesting stuff to check out. I don't pull that many single issues anymore as I have moved to trades for a lot of stuff. But as we all know, trades are a big commitment and we have to be sure we are ready to take that step. That said, here we go:

Pull List for 6/6/12
Earth 2 #2
Worlds' Finest #2

(I actually wasn't bowled over by either of these #1s. I will probably be a little more patient with Earth 2 than Worlds' Finest because Nicola Scott's pencils are just brilliant. )

Game-time Decisions
Swamp Thing #10
Thief of Thieves #5

I need to catch up on Swamp Thing. I read up until issue #3 and have just forgot to buy it as there have been so many new Image titles occupying my time, but those might thin out soon, but I got to say out of all the new Image Titles so far, the one I'm MOST looking forward to a #2 is Mind the Gap. I really liked that one a lot.

How was Worlds Finest? I passed on it because it was two chicks on the cover, and I always remembered it to be Bats and Sup.

Ugh, the first Swamp Thing trade isn't coming out until late August. The new arc starts with #10 though so you might be okay jumping on now.

I totally agree about Image. In terms of thinning out, I don't know: Image has been absolutely fantastic this year. It seems like everything they have put out is smart, interesting, and new. I really like The Manhattan Projects so far. I have not read Mind the Gap. Maybe I will check that one out tomorrow.

Grim Leaper is excellent. Already in a second printing.

I am very interested in Harbinger as well. A few that I'm curious about that I didn't see mentioned:

Spawn #220 (the 20th anniversary and a reboot)
Prophecy #1 (deals with end of days Mayan calendar craziness)
Creator-Owned Heroes #1 (Image #1, so worth speculating on)

I forgot about Spawn #220.. I'll take a look at it this morning. Thanks for the reminder! See, this thread is helping out after all!

And the award for the not-so-subliminal cover of the week goes to ......World's Finest #2.


Agreeing with kaj, also trying to pick up a Prophecy 1 variant issue this week.

I bought multiples of some, and passed on some on my list. Didn't bring as much cash as I thought, plus variant covers are a bit more $$

Yeah, he marks them up but will sell them. All the shops in Indy sell the Variants that I know of.

Yeah, issue 1 came out today. I didn't buy it, but the guy at the shop said it was surprisingly good. He's pretty honest with his opinion as opposed to just trying to sell you crap each week, I trust his opinion on comics. He's 110% Comic Nerd.
