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’ll pick mine for March 14 in advance: Avengers #684, the return of the Incredible Hulk.*

*(I’m just a Marvel fanboy at heart.)

Criminy! I still haven't read all of this week and you're already going to next week!

March 14 is "this week." :)

For this week, Marvel Two-In-One #4.

Gonna go with Tales of Suspense #103.

I have no clear winner this week. I bought five new comics, all good, solid reads. (Then again, I've read only one so far.)

Thanos: Infinity Siblings OGN

It was a good week, with some strong contenders in Marvel Two-In-One #5 and Runaways #8. Unfortunately for them, they came out the same week as Astro City #51, which I thought was hands down the best book of the week.

For this week...

Regular comic book: Captain America #700

Special comic book: Action Comics #1000 (hc edition)

No-brainer this week. It pretty much has to be Action Comics #1000, doesn't it?

While I do plan on grabbing it, I'm actually more enthused about Super Sons #15 and Tales of Suspense #104.

My shop has a midnight release for #1000 (and all DC books). I'm so there.
