Host Derek Coward talks about some books he would love to see from comic book companies.
This was a very light week for me.
The Boys #29 (Dynamite Entertainment) – I need to switch over to trades on this. It’s not that I don’t want to get the individual issues, it’s just that I miss too many of them in a row, so while I get the gist of the stories, I ALWAYS feel as though I have missed something. Maybe if I read the whole storyline in one sitting it will make more
sense to me.
Dynamo5 #21 (Image Comics) – I’m still digging this series and since I can’t have anymore Noble Causes (by the way the second Archive will be coming out soon) this is a pretty good substitute. I take that back. This isn’t a substitute as much as it is a replacement and we all know how I feel about The Replacements.
That’s it. No DC. No Marvel. No Dark Horse. No IDW.
I stopped by a comic shop on the way home today. I asked the guy behind the counter “What have you sold the most of this week?”
He told me and I bought Dark Avengers #2.
I also picked up:
Tangent: Superman’s Reign #7
Tangent: Superman’s Reign #9
Tangent: Superman’s Reign #10
Tangent: Superman’s Reign #11
I couldn’t find #8 and I forgot to pick up #12. (Yeah, I know, Idiocy Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Every Derek. *Very obscure reference.*)
Host Derek Coward finishes his look at the best of 2008 by talking about the titles that he has heard good things about but has never checked out yet, best miniseries that didn’t finish in 2008, best #1 comics of 2008 and the best graphic novels.
