Reason For A Brit To Be Thankful


Even though it was announced in September that Alan Davis would be working on a new series of ClanDestine, it is still the best reason for this Brit to be thankful for the Marvel solicitations for February 2008. Obviously, I have a lot of love for this series (it was one of the reasons behind the naming of the blog),…

Solicitations, Inventory, And, Erm, Stuff


A lot to get through today, so let’s crack on and commentaritating (and making up words): Marvel solicitations for October As Marvel ploughs on with the massive Civil War crossover, there are only a few items worthy of merit that deserve mentioning, for whatever reason I see fit. Ultimate Power #1 Bendis starts off this bizarre crossover, with the Ultimate…

DC Comics Solicitations for October


Life (and the amazing rarity of wonderful British sunshine) meant that I didn’t buy my comics for last week and I didn’t see Superman Returns. I feel ashamed to the pit of my soul, which is why I find it ironic that my next topic of discussion is upcoming comics (that I will buy much later than when they come…

Incoming Inventory – June 29


Usagi Yojimbo #94I don’t have it in me to do Comics Activisim but, if I did, I would do it for Usagi Yojimbo. I have been a fanatic for the rabbit bodyguard since I discovered him sometime ago. I buy the singles, but also buy the trades as well, because it is just that good. According to ICv2.com, Usagi Yojimbo…

Marvel Solicitations and Incoming Inventory


Marvel solicitations for September here. Like the DC soliciations, a selection rather than a long rundown: Ultimate Spider-Man #100 I don’t read Ultimate Spider-Man (although I did start out reading it), but you have to admit that it’s an impressive feat for the same creative team to continue for 100 issues straight in this day and age, especially on a…

DC Solicitations and Other Comics Business


DC solicitations for September can be found here. I thought I’d try something different, and point out a handful of interesting new things from the massive listing of new product from DC, rather than go through the whole thing in detail. In reverse list order: Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall (HC) Bill Willingham tells a collection of short stories, in…

No Comics Again? Am I That Unlucky?


No new comics again this week. I’m getting worried I’m not buying enough comics. Not that my bank balance is complaining, stingy bastard that I am, but it’s weird that I’m not getting a regular dose of the new comic book. Is it just my turning into a grumpy old git, moaning about how things were better in the old…

Marvel & Image solicitations


Is it really a year since the first Ultimate annuals? Are they special anymore, or just money-grabbing opportunities (or is that stating the obvious when it comes to Marvel)? I must rest my weary cynicism detector. Reading the Marvel solicits is slightly tiring; if it isn’t a tie-in to the massive Civil War crossover, then it’s probably a new comic…

DC August solicitations


No intro. Let’s do it. Much as I like a bit of Wagner, I won’t be getting his Batman Year 1.5 stories. However, Batman and the Mad Monk is wonderfully silly title, and he draws a cool Bats. What a great byline: ‘What do you get when you add one Batman, fifty Ninja Man-Bats and the British Prime Minister’s wife?’…

Marvel solicitations for July


And now, the Mighty Marvel Mammoth Menu! (They do a lot of books, don’t they?) Ultimate X-Men #72 – is The Magician the most boring-looking hero you have ever seen? It looks like one of designs that Mike Weiringo puts up on his blog that he did as a child; it’s so bland and non-descript. Alarm bells ring when he…
