Coming This Week: "Your Name Is You're Wanting"

It seems like a light week; is this the sign of the pre-con hold back strategy from all of the publishers waiting to debut their “big” projects at SDCC? At the Distinguished Competition, I see Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #3 (DC) calling to me, with Joe The Barbarian #6 (DC/Vertigo) also pleading for a purchase, both Grant Morrison joints. I own a couple sets of Flex Mentallo and my precious All-Star Superman Hardcovers (when is that Absolute Edition coming out?), but past that I don’t consider myself a huge G’Mo fan, yet here he is with DC’s only buys for me for the week. I didn’t buy Batman #700, so there’s even less likelihood I’ll pick up Superman #700 (DC), but it’s fun to mark the milestone. I’m still waiting for the day that Detective Comics hits #1,000 – now that’ll be something special, with 134 more issues to go, that’s just over 11 years at a regular monthly rate! Meanwhile, the House of Ideas delivers Avengers #2 (Marvel) from Bendis and Romita Jr. I’m still not 100% sold on the scripting, but it sure is purdy. On the indy front, The Killer: Modus Vivendi #3 (Archaia) rounds out the week’s financial pull. What looks good to you? Who’s buying what? Any titles you’d like to see me reviewing that I’m not?

Bullet To The Head from Dynamite Entertainment? Written by Matz (of The Killer fame). Worth a look I think.

Cool, thanks Matt. I wasn't aware of that.
