new comic day

new comic book day

Today’s purchases at Isotope:

Appleseed Hypernotes (finally, in English)
Runaways #28 (trying this out on Dan Brown‘s recommendation)
X-Factor #24
B.P.R.D. “Killing Ground” #3 of 4
Batman #669
New Avengers #36
Black Summer #3
Buffy Season 8 #7

That’s more than I usually buy, and I was hoping not to be too disappointed. Unfortunately, it looks like the only thing Bendis learned from DC’s Identity Crisis is that you can totally boost sales by doing something horribly violent to a second-tier female character. Just ugly. Valerie will have something smart to say about it, I’ve no doubt.

X-Factor ends a completely unnecessary story with a baffling non-ending. Black Summer continues to be superb. Looking forward to sitting down with the rest, but I’ve got a backlog of sketches to turn into something meaningful.

What are you picking up this week?

    Our venn diagram of comic purchases this week had a huge overlap except for the part where you went to a shop that had comics and I went to a shop that had an apologetic note where the new comics shoulda been. I was really looking forward to reading that new Black Summer this evening too.

    Oh man. Is Al’s Comics in trouble again?
