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.

I just want to see Walt Simonson draw X-Factor again.

I have been looking forward to this for a long time. 

Does Tracy know about this Steve Rude support?

Shhh! Don't tell her. 

MY BAD #1:

(W) Mark Russell, Bryce Ingman (A/CA) Peter Krause

A sharp super-hero spoof from a stellar team that includes co-creators of Irredeemable and Second Coming! In Gravel City, the super-villain Emperor King has devised not only a sadistic death trap for his arch-enemy, The Accelerator, but also the means to penetrate the top secrets of his other arch-enemy, The Chandelier! Important new comic book universe begins here, we say sarcastically!

This looks like it could be either entertainingly goofy or goofily entertaining, I'm not sure which.

Hmm... "entertainingly goofy," I think.

My shop missed My Bad, but I've ordered it specifically now (as opposed to "All Ahoy comics," and the version with the Ordway cover should be arriving for me in a few weeks.

Funny and smart. Irreverent. Not for fanboys. 

I haven't posted one of these in a while but I wanted to get this on up as soon as possible in time to do some good for anyone who might be interested.

They've battled Moby Dick, matched wits with Dickens, and befriended a kingdom of evolved sea monkeys! They're the genre hopping heroes of Hypercity: the Fictionauts! Fantasy is a serious business for this team, as they scour fictional worlds to right dangerous anomalies and preserve the balance between reality and imagination!

THE WRONG EARTH: TRAPPED ON TEEN PLANET:

The first of five unique one-shots building and expanding on the world of AHOY's The Wrong Earth, by some of the biggest names in comics! First off: superstar writer Gail Simone contributes an extra-long story as grim and gritty vigilante Dragonfly is whisked to an alternate Earth of teen-agers, malt shops, love triangles, and school dances! Will this innocent world soften him? Or will his violent methods poison it? Featuring variant covers by Dan Parent (Archie) and Gene Ha (Top TenMae).
