Comic Book Noise 269: I Hate Telemarketers

Host Derek Coward was already planning a short show, but right in the middle of a pretty interesting point about Marvel and their event crossovers, he was interrupted by a phone call and lost his train of thought. Oh well, even though the show is less than ten minutes, it was still pretty good up til that point.

What I Got – 3/17/2010

This is a full list of what I actually picked up this week from Detroit Comics.

Siege Embedded 2 (Marvel) – I was missing this issue, but luckily there was one copy left.

Siege Embedded 3 (Marvel) – Since I was there getting issue 2…

Siege 3 (Marvel) – My comic book dealer didn’t grab this because I didn’t put it on my pull list, which may have been a mistake because it is extremely popular at the shop.

Milestone Forever (Milestone/DC Comics) – Part of me is sad this is the last Milestone story being told with these characters. I am holding out hope that DC will do right by the characters, but I am increasingly getting the feeling that Static will be the only one still around in a couple of years. I hope I’m wrong.

Irredeemable 12 (BOOM! Studios) – This is one of my favorite books being published right now. I got the Panosian cover.

Green Hornet Year One 1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Written by Matt Wagner with covers by Matt Wagner. I would prefer that he was working on Mage 3, but that’s cool, I have high hopes for this title.

Choker 2 (Image) – The Bens (Templesmith and McCool) put out a very enjoyable first issue, so I have no reason to believe they will falter on the second.

28 Days Later 8 (BOOM! Studios) – I am still loving this book. I picked up the Tim Bradstreet cover and it is a thing of beauty.

The Boys Vol 6: The Self-Preservation Society (Dynamite Entertainment) – I didn’t have the money last week and to be honest with you, I should have put it off for a couple of more weeks but I hate leaving stuff in the pull box.

The Marvel books were picked up off the shelves. Everything else was on my pull list. If it wasn’t for Siege, I wouldn’t have had anything from Marvel or DC (I don’t really count the Milestone book, but I suppose I should).

I also found out the shop doesn’t carry any manga. It just doesn’t sell. Not it sells poorly, it apparently wasn’t selling at all, so he turned around and sold his entire manga inventory to a local library. Weird, huh?

What I Got 3/3/2010

This was HUGE week for me. Not only did a bunch of books that I was looking for finally come in, but I also went to TWO shops this week and went a little crazy in the dollar bin of one of them.

New This Week:
True Story Swear To God 12 (Image Comics) – I already read and reviewed this issue. Short answer: get it now (unless you have no love in your heart, then just stick with Blackest Night/Siege).
Girl Comics 1 of 3(Marvel Comics) – Again read and reviewed. Again I recommend you pick it up.
The Great Ten 5 of 10 (DC Comics) – I still think this is the best book coming out from DC and I can’t wait to get the time to read it.
The Sword 22 (Image Comics) – This title is coming to an end soon and I will miss it.
Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet 1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – I’m looking forward to the entire sub-line of Green Hornet books.
First Wave 1 of 6 (DC Comics) – This is the only book I am not completely sold on, but I think this might surprise me.
Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep 9 (BOOM! Studios) – Still a good title and I look forward to it every month.
Age of Bronze: Betrayal Part One TPB (Image Comics) – I decided last week to switch from single issues to trades for this title.
Siege 2 of 4 (Marvel Comics) – I finally found a copy and I’m looking forward to The Sentry vs Ares.
Starman 81 (DC Comics) – Why not, I have a vast majority of the rest of the issues. I might be missing two or three. Maybe as many as six.
Nexus: Space Opera 101/102 (Rude Dude Productions) – I had not idea this even came out, which sucks because I have looking forward to each issue and I doubt there will be any others.
Naoki Urasawa’s 20th Century Boys (Viz Media) – I wanted to get Pluto Vol 1, but since they didn’t have it, I picked this up and special ordered Pluto. I want to go on record as saying that I am picking Pluto up on the recommendation of Ryan King, so if I don’t like it, I will blame him. Just kidding, I will blame Vince B.

From The Dollar Bin:
Prophet 5 and 6 (Image Comics) – The only issue of Prophet I have is 7, so it will be nice to see how we got to that point.
Incredible Herc 116/119/120/121 (Marvel Comics) – I have never read a single issue of Incredible Herc, but I heard a lot of good things about it.
War of Kings 2 of 6 (Marvel Comics) – I read the first issue and nothing after that, but I liked it and I want to check it out for a dollar.
Dazzler 26 (Marvel Comics) – I have never read an issue of Dazzler, but this one is the beginning of “The Startling Secret of Dazzler’s Sister.” Plus, there were a LOT of issues of Dazzler in the dollar bin.
Final Crisis 4 of 7 (DC Comics) – I stopped buying after issue 3, but a dollar, why not?
Justice League of America Vol 1 37 (DC Comics) – The cover is torn, but for some reason, I don’t think I have ever read this issue.
Tales of The Teen Titans 81 (DC Comics) – I got this because the creative team is Marv Wolfman, John Byrne and Jose Luis Garcia Lopez. Hall of Famer Creators FTW!!!
Imperial Guard 2 (Marvel Comics) – This has a cover date of Feb 97, but I had no idea this title even existed until I saw it for a dollar.
Fantastic Four 557 (Marvel Comics) – I missed the entire Millar/Hitch/Currie run, so when I saw it so cheaply, I thought I would check it out.
Bullet Points 1 or 5 (Marvel Comics) – I have no idea what this is about, but Tommie Lee Edwards drawing the original gray Iron Man. C’mon.
Give Me Liberty 3 (Dark Horse Comics) – Once again, never read any of the Martha Washington stuff, so why not for a dollar (notice a trend?)

Plus, even though I need about three or four long boxes, I picked up one.

Teenage Wasteland Episode 64 – Don’t Be a Know-it-All

This week on Teenage Wasteland…

Something funny and odd happened during my last trek to my local comic shop. It’s a tale I wish to recount while hopefully instilling some sense of moral fortitude. Let’s learn the lesson, people, nobody likes a Know-it-All. Also, some comic talk and a word from Mr. Jeff Sandquist.
