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.

Hands down:

Anew series from AHOY! Comics is always reason to celebrate.

September 14: None.

I bought 11 new comics today. I haven't read any of them yet, but I've no doubt my favorite will be...

A new Binge Book from Sitcomics:

After taking down human traffickers, Headhunter rescues an orphaned baby and decides to raise her as his own. Unfortunately, the Heroes Union isn't convinced that a homeless, super-powered vigilante is cut out for fatherhood! It's a family-friendly, triple-sized, self-contained epic from writer Darin Henry and animation legend Steven E. Gordon wrapped inside an instant classic cover by Ron Frenz & Sal Buscema.

Very difficult pick this week.

One forward-looking:

One backward-looking:

And one "new #1":

The "new number one" was a huge disappointment (good story, but it didn't include three of the four title characters). Between the other two, I guess I'll have to go with the "forward-looking" one...

THE NEW GOLDEN AGE.
