My New Comics and Hitting the Wall
Last week’s best cover is Last Reign: King of War #3.
Doctor Who Classic Series 2 #3, IDW.
The Walking Dead #58, Image.
Last Reign: King of War #3, Boom Studios.
On the Rack Back Issue: I noticed that Booster Gold #16 had Enemy Ace so I picked that up too… a month late
Classic Invaders Vol 3, Marvel Comics. Reprints Invaders #22-23 and #25-34. It’s funny because my store forgot to keep putting the Avengers/Invaders in my box so now I’ve missed a few issues and I don’t feel like hunting down what I missed
In other news
I’ve hit a wall. I’m really quite fed up with the price of comics. Recently I opened up Previews and noticed that Marvel had a few new titles that I wanted priced at $3.99. The first thing that went across my mind was “fuck this” We are going into a great depression here folks and Marvel expects us diehard fans to shoulder more and more of the burden. I’ve had it. Comics thrived during the 1930’s because they were a cheap form of entertainment and fucking four bucks per title is not cheap. Simply put, it’s a rip-off. I’m spending so much money on comics I can’t spend it on anything else irregardless if the cover price is four bucks or less. Fool me once shame on you, fool me every week year after year… well you get picture…
I’ve cancelled a slew of titles and I’ve cancelled a of bunch future orders as well. Hell if I really miss something great it’s gonna come out in a trade anyway right? There’s a few series I’ll continue with for right now but most are gone. Also, I’m gonna let the current mini-series I’m following run out and not pick up the next iteration. And that’s it.
Titles I’ve dropped:
Terminator: Revolution, Dynamite Entertainment
Conan: The Cimmerian, Dark Horse Comics (I’ll pick up the trades at some point)
Northlanders, Vertigo/DC Comics
The Man with No Name, Dynamite Entertainment
Secret Six, DC Comics
Star Trek: Crew, IDW
Star Trek: Mission’s End, IDW
Astounding Wolf-Man (I’ll pick up the trades at some point)
Previews, I can’t order what I don’t know is coming out right?!
Oh Man I just remembered I gotta drop the Hulk too!
I guess this is really gonna screw up next year’s Atomic Romance Awards heh heh
