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.


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.

  • DEADWEIGHTS #1: I haven't read this one yet, but the first issue of a new series from AHOY! Comics will always get my "Pick of the Week" nod. After I have read it, I will weigh in on the review thread Cap started.


  • Wow! Three Tom King comics on the same day? How can I choose?


  • MY BAD v3 #1:


    I don't know if you read what I posted to "Comics  Guide" this week (and it you didn't, you're probably not reading this, either), but I quoted from a letter written by Mark Russell to reatilers which reads (in part): "I am not contacting you because My Bad is a new series. We are about to embark on our third season. I am instead contacting you because it is a series I believe in, one which I think you will enjoy (if you do not already), and I hope you will recommend it to your customers.

    "I truly believe that there is nothing on the stands quite like My Bad. It's an irreverent love letter to comics and so a title I think is ideally suited for the local comic shop, more so than the Barnes and Noble or online digital comic market. This is precisely how I hope people will experience My Bad for the first time, holding it in theor hands, standing in a shop where they've discovered every comic they've ever loved."

    • Trade-waiting. Have the first two (in my pile).

    • Good man. iXq5XRp.gif
