• Too many 4 dollar comics really. I've complained before I know, but unless I am really into it, I am going to pass on these.
  • A preview of a comic actually halted my decision to by a comic (Turf from Image). Way too many text boxes and speech balloons filling up the panels in the pages.
  • Another Marvel Zombies mini series?
  • I see that Deadpool is making an appearance in the Moon Knight comic As a reader of that series, "ugh"
  • Dynamite is already doing two spinoff series on Green Hornet. A bit premature if you ask me.
  • I won't be buying it, but I was happy that to there is a book on the history Swedish comics for the people out there who are interested.
  • 2 series are on the bubble depending on how their mutual storylines end. Captain America (the $4 proce and an unwanted backup make me less likely to ride out a bad storyline) and Justice Society of America.

Do you think the current Captain America storyline (part two of four released this week) is bad? I've got to tell you, that one page of dialogue between Bucky/Cap and the Falcon was so funny I almost brought the comic with me today to quote on the board. (Now I wish I had.) For those of you not reading it, the current story features the infamous "Captain America of the 1950s" (or "Bad Cap" as dubed by Bucky). Marvel has already released tpbs of 1970s storylines featuring the Secret Empire, Nomad and Jack Kirby's return, and I can only hope they soon release a collection of the four-issue "captain America of the 1950s" storyline.

I agree with you about the back-up, however. I don't even read it. Captain America might be a better value in collected format. The story certainly warrants it.
Y'know, it's funny... I like the Nomad back-up in Captain America well enough, but that comic is just so tonally different, both in writing and art, from the headline series that it's hard for me to argue that it should continue to be there.
That's a large part of why I don't read it. Presumably Nomad will eventually be folded into the main story. If/when that happens, I'll pick up her backstory as the main characters do and as it becomes relevent to the plot.
The Nomad mini was decent. Not great, but decent. The back-up in Cap is now on my "skip" list.

Check out the Secret Headquarters (my store) website! It's a pretty lame website, but I did it myself, so tough noogies

Listen to WOXY.com, it's the future of rock-n-roll!

I don't find it bad at all, but I am essentially paying 4 bucks for the same comic I was getting last year. If it doesn't rock me then I don't know if I can justify continuing to buy it. I may switch to the trades. Like I said it is just on the bubble, and my attitude can completely change from now until then.
I rarelky pick up the Previews catalog anymore, not because the info in the pages has already been leaked, but some weeks I can't afford to spend the $4.50 when I can skim through the online order form & jot down what I order on the short-order form anyway. It was only the Feb (April) 2010 catalog that I picked up, and noticed that Green Ronin Publishing offered the next Wild Cards sourcebook for April.

I'm still waiting for Dynamite to continue Dabel Bros.' Wild Cards LS, which never got finished.

As for the comics, all I pick up is Predator, Aliens, AvP, Terminator and Dark Tower (DT is for a freind, otherwise I wouldn't even think about Marvel anymore).
Yep, I'm skipping over that Nomad back-up, too. Normally, I don't mind being exposed to a new(ish) character in a co-feature, but I kinda resent the extra dollar I have to spend on this one.

And, yep, Travis, as I just remarked in another thread: It seems that Dynamite is expanding the Green Hornet line way too fast. I can understand having the Smith present-day version and the Wagner golden-age version running concurrently, but they just announced that they're adding a future Green Hornet series, too.

I was a little scared by the Turf preview pages I saw online, but I may still give it a try. I love the premise.

Just for the record, I don't look at the physical Previews catalog either; I just peruse the listings at a couple of online stores.
