Wednesday, the best day of the week, new comic book day. It is like your birthday in the middle of each week (well, one where you buy your own presents.)
We open things up to hear from you. A free for all.
The 146th edition of the open forum!
Another week of comics are upon us. I want to start out by thanking everyone who comes here and checks out the site. It is fun to do. I enjoy the interaction of readers and posters. And everyone stays civil. That is huge. There is a lot of drama in the world of comics, comic spec, and comic spec sites. It has never bothered me that readers come here and go to other spec sites, or comic groups, or whatever. All are welcome. Comics are fun and it is nice to have a place where people act like people and just respect each other. If doing this, the site, flipping comics, talking about comics, was not fun, then it wouldn’t be worth doing. I have a job that isn’t fun, so wouldn’t want to bring that into the rest of my life as well.
With that being said I thought news out of SDCC was fairly tame. Other than Princeless catching everyone off guard, there was no big options that blew everyone away. There are none to be found of the first issue and no self-published copies have appeared.
I love the rumor of Jeffrey Dean Morgan playing Thomas Wayne Batman in Flashpoint. Look for those Batman Knight of Vengeance #1’s.
As always we also want to hear about your weekly pickups.
So, What were your pick ups?
What had disappeared off the shelves?
What was sitting on the shelves?
