Shopping List for 9/27/06
Diamond hasn't finalized the week's list yet, so there may be changes.
52: Week Twenty-One
I'm still liking it, but there are certain plots I've lost interest in, so that affects my enjoyment of each issue.
Justice vol. 1 HC
I'm unsure about this, but it might be the first thing I read.
Loser vol. 5: Endgame TP
Did this end where Diggle wanted it to, or was this a premature end?
Otherworld vol. 1: Book One TP
Glad to see this is getting collected. All that finger-crossing paid off.
Lions, Tigers, & Bears vol 2 #3
Love this sereis, but I unfortunately fell into that self-trade pattern of reading.
Amazing Spider-Man #535
Captain America #22
Civil War Frontline #6
A nice little cluster of CW books.
I should really wait on this series, but I'm enjoying it too much.
Daughters of the Dragon: Samurai Bullets TP
Liked the first two issues, so I'm looking forward to reading the rest here.
She-Hulk 2 #12
Damn Slott. Making me like and care about fictional characters. What gives him the right?
Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane
Making the switch to trade for $$$ reasons. :(
Ultimate Spider-Man #100
OK. Amendment: this will be the first thing I read.
I hope I remebered to pre-order it.
Wait for Trade
Always brings a smile to my face.
Morrison and Kubert? Yeah, I think DC might collect this.
Batman and the Mad Monk
Wagner! This will definitely get collected.
Jack of Fables
I'm actually hesitant about this, but I will most definitely be getting the first trade.

Huge week for me! Time to start making some cuts again.
52 Week #21, $2.50 - still enjoying the heck out of this.
Justice League Of America #2, $2.99 - didn't care for the first couple of issues. This will be added to my purge list.
Teen Titans #39, $2.99 - Like Outsiders, this book seems to be sitting in idle. Candidate for purge.
Uncle Sam And The Freedom Fighters #3 (Of 8), $2.99 - pre-ordered through #4, then will drop.
Invincible #35 (resolicited), $2.99 - this would normally be the first book that I read.
Amazing Spider-Man #535 CW, $2.99 - This has been good reading.
Captain America #22 CW, $2.99
Civil War Young Avengers & Runaways #3 (Of 4), $2.99 - someday I'll get around to reading this mini.
Heroes For Hire #2 CW, $2.99 - gets a couple of more issues to hook me before dropping.
Ultimate Spider-Man #100 / Bagley Var #100, $3.99 - First book that I will read this week. I'm also going to go out of my way to track down the variant cover.
Previews Vol XVI #10, AR
Marvel Previews #38 October 2006 Extras
Wizard Comics Magazine Civil War X Men Cvr #181, $5.99 - have a subscription and it will arrive eventually.
Cut that and there's $5.99 you can have back! :D

Dude, a free pile of dung is still just a pile of dung. Ask for the cash instead!

Until Ebsco carries CBG, it's going to have to be Shonen Jump and Shojo Beat.
Cheering the apocalypse
52 Week #21: Feels good. Feels real good.
Batman #657: Some nice father son time.
Blue Beetle #7: This is the book I am most disappointed in. I so desperately wish to keep it, but evrery issue after the second has let me down. I may check back in on it later.
Justice Vol 1 HC: No explanation necessary.
Losers: Endgame TPB: Alas, we come to an end. I'm hoping for a few mini-series or something down the line. Yeah, I know, it's been optioned for a movie. Not the same.
Daredevil #89: The only Marvel I read is Brubaker (and soon Matt Fraction on Punisher: War Zone). Daredevil actually. I read his first two Uncanny X-men. I can wait for the tpb on those.
I completely agree with your assessment. I dropped it with issue #5, but don't plan on going back (unless Ted Kord is somehow resurrected from the dead to take back the mantle of the Blue Beetle).

Secret Six #4 At least as good as the mini series.
Supergirl and the Legion#22 So many ongoing stories in this. This is my soap opera superhero book of the week.
Jack of Fables #3 I like that this has been a lot like Fables, but different in it's own way. Feels like it should be an extended min, rather than a full on going.
Ninja Scroll #1 cause I'm a big anime nerd, and I've loved the movie since High School. if it's bad, I'll drop it quick.
CW: Front Line #6 If for the Sppedball section only. Should I just stop reading before the last two pages?
CW: Young Avengers and Runaways #3 Second issue saved this one for me. For some reason I didn't like the art in issue 1 but I liked it in issue 2. Weird.
Eternals #4 Good stuff, what else can I say.
She-Hulk #12 I still don't know why I buy this. I like it, but it doesn't blow my socks off like it used to. I'm still sucked into the story though.
Ultimate Spidey #100 Still good after all this time. fearing what will happen when bagley leaves though. He's been my Spidey artist of choice since I started reading comics.
Ulitmates #12 I'll add my voice to the chorus and say "What happened in issue 11?" It's still good but seriously, where were we?
Shonen Jump Monthly manga goodness. Yes, I know, I'm way outside the target age for this, but it's still fun comics.
Previews Hopefully there's some good indie stuff this month. The last few months have been a little thin. But I guess it saves me money. Take the good with the bad.
Trades to possibly buy
JSA: Vol 11
Superman: Up, Up, and Away
More than likely, Losers will end up coming home and the other two will go back to the pull box for a later week. It's the only one I'm really excited about.
Most likely, yes. And I'm a big Billy Joel fan.
