Every week, one item or another in my pull and hold stands out for me above the rest in one way or another. Sometimes it’s a periodical, sometimes a graphic novel, sometimes a collection. Does that happen to you? If so, let’s hear about it here. It can be an item you’ve long anticipated or something you bought on a whim. If it’s something you were really looking forward to but ended up being a big disappointment, let’s hear about that here, too. I’ve been meaning to start this topic for a long time now, but chose today to post about something I’ve been waiting for a long time, long before it was even solicited.

SILVER SURFER EPIC COLLECTION BY STEVE ENGLEHART AND MARSHAL ROGERS

This is a favorite run of mine, but I’ve read it only twice: once as it was released, and I re-read it once after that. It came out as an “ESSENTIAL” a few years ago, but for this I held out for color.

EDIT: Most weeks I make my picks before I have read them, but feel free to choose either the books you anticipate most before you read or enjoy the most after you have read them.

This week's "pre-trip pick" is Batman & The Maxx #1.

WHAT!? This is a thing? Since when?

This is actually why I love not reading any solicitations ever. I love being surprised by awesomeness. Plus, my new job has me able to visit my LCS over my lunch hour (a new thing in my world). It's not only close to my comic shop, but I now get a full hour! Wednesdays are that much better now.

It is indeed.

This week: From Hell "Master Edition" #1 (although Wrong Earth #2 and Hey, Kids... Comics! #3 also shipped).

I'm going to go with Captain Ginger #1, the third release (fourth actual comic) from Ahoy! Comics.

GREEN LANTERN #1: This week my pick is the new Green Lantern #1 by Grant Morrison. Green Lantern is one of my favorite characters, but I haven’t been following it since the “rainbow lanterns” were introduced. Flashpoint made it even worse (for all DC series) by essentially wiping out the “universe” I had been following for decades. But I’ve noticed a tendency to kind of “forget” Flashpoint rebooted the DCU and find myself looking forward to what Grant Morrison is going to do with the character.
