Wednesday Open Forum

Wednesday

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 164th edition of the open forum!

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?
What back issue deals did you grab?

Here are my pickups for the week so far:

    What up everyone!!!

    I was wondering if anybody else noticed Tiffany Espensen aka “Cindy” is in Avengers Infinity War…Which in my opinion secures her spot as Silk. Thoughts?

    • Anthony says:

      No. I didn’t notice. But will now go back and watch.

    • JayClue says:

      I hope it is. I’ve been stick piling her 1st.

      • Brennan says:

        shes a way better character than spider-gwen yet her ongoing gets cancelled and gwens is still going….
        I know that history will come down on the side of silk and gwen will be forgotten or laughed at, but for her to disappear so quickly was a huge surprise to me. The character has so much depth and potential for some amazing storytelling.

    As I stated in a previous forum, I have recently bought and am reading the ASM Omnibus vol.1. I just discovered a neat podcast, which some of you may want to check out, called ‘Screw it, let’s talk about just Spider-Man’. Each episode goes over in detail each issue is the ASM run, starting with Amazingly Fantasy 15. Kinda a fun listen. Check it out if your interested.

    Oh it just dawned on me that I have the first appearance ever of Zombie Carl from Walking Dead on a Walking Dead comic.. now since he got bit in the show.. I hope they make him turn. But we know that won’t happen.

    Really digging Runaways, also the cuckoos new Xmen #118 on Gifted was great.

    Hello again everyone.
    It’s been a slow week on my end. I’ve been waiting for the Star Wars episodes 1-6 blu rays to go on sale forever now and it finally happened! I got all six on blu ray and dvd for only $60 CAD. Normally they retail for $110. I’m pretty pumped about that.

    This week I am getting:

    Action Comics #993
    Bloodshot: Salvation $4
    Cable #152
    Detective Comics #970
    Jughead: The Hunger #2
    Mister Miracle #5
    Royals #12
    Star Wars #40
    Supergirl #16 – Artgerm Variant
    The Amazing Spider-Man #792
    The Despicable Deadpool #290
    The Flash #36

    Have fun, stay hydrated!

    Not sure if this is the right place to bring this up, and it probably could be a write-up all on its own, but I was curious if anyone had any spec thoughts on the Fox/Disney potential deal. Obviously, we know the big characters would get a boost, but what are the other books that may see a jump?

  7. schweizerdavid says:

    It is a Stokoe-tastic week if you are a James Stokoe fan.

    Picking up:
    Aliens Dead Orbit 4 (Stokoe)
    Invader Zim 26

    Maybe:
    Samurai Jack Quantum Jack 3 (Stokoe 1:10 cover)
    Under Scourge of the Sewer 1 (Stokoe cover)
    Love and Rockets 4 (from last week)

    I saw Brandon Graham again at a local signing with Joe Keating and Farel Dalrymple and had more of my collection signed and sketched upon. Found out he just moved to Portland!

    Also bought my Image Expo 2018 ticket since Image is now in Portland too. If anyone is planning on buying a Premium ticket to get the 3 Image Expo variants, the deadline to buy a ticket is December 24.

    • David Bitterbaum says:

      Those, “Trump,” political comics make decent flips, I’ve gotten some and been surprised at how both his biggest, “Fans,” and biggest haters both want them a they either interpret the books as loving homages or a hilarious mockery. I guess the key is to write the comics so they can be taken as either way?

    Seeing it posted elsewhere that Kill or be Killed is being adapted into a movie. It’s a good series, hope they don’t screw it up as a movie.
