Welcome once again to the weekly ramblings. I try to focus on the news and events around the current week.
What do I have in store for this week? As I’m typing this it seems it’s going to be a lighter like and dislike week but I’ll let you all be the judge of that.
The news of Jeff Lemire’s Descender continuing on with a new story titled Ascender got me smiling.
Although I’m a little behind reading Descender, I’m sure I’ll be picking up Ascender once it hits store shelves as Lemire rarely disappoints, certainly a top 5 writer in my book currently.
Batman And Catwoman… Sitting in a Tree..
Catwoman left Batman standing all alone up at the alter in the mega issue Batman #50? Who didn’t see this coming right? Batman is a loner and anyone who though they were gonna actually get married was fooled.
Mark this as things I like. I hope all you retailers didn’t go to heavy on that marketing PR of a book. Now Tom King, can we drop the dumb love stories and get on with Batman being Batman? If I want a soap drama, I’m sure I can find some “All My Children” episodes in the VHS section at my local Half Price Books.
His new book Farmhand hits shelves this week. I’ve already read it with a advance digital review copy but I liked it so much, I just want my physical copy now.. and issue #2 to be released already.. perhaps #3 as well. That’d be great!
Free Comic Wednesdays
Anthony posted up a giveaway this past week as did Shawn B.. Gotta love the free comic giveaways by just commenting your name for the most part. You give us your name, Anthony uses that for his upcoming world domination plans, you might win some great comics. What more could you ask for?
You all just hold on though, I’m hoping to have a really fun giveaway (in the near future) but you have to pay attention to Poyo’s posts and possibly comments for clues. But I’m hoping it’s going to be a really great giveaway and you’ll hopefully have fun trying to win.
Wednesday Winners Gone Again…
With all the great spec books, what happened to the Wednesday winner posts? Anthony, you tease. You brought them back a few weeks ago but none since. Perhaps I could get off my lazy chicken butt and do them myself. I still love you Anthony.
Ding Dong Dan Slott’s Gone
Just had to throw it out there one more time that Dan Slott is officially gone now from Amazing Spider-Man since Nick Spencer takes over this Wednesday for the web slinger.
We should throw a huge virtual party to celebrate.
That’s all I got this week folks. Tell me what you like or dislike this week in the comments section.
