This week’s shipping
includes several items I’ve ordered. I’ll be
taking home Astonishing X-Men Vol. 2 in TPB
form, Essential X-Factor Vol. 1,
Fantastic Four #532, Green Lantern
, Marvel Milestones: Ultimate Spider-Man,
Ultimate X-Men, Microman and Mantor
, Ultimate
Spider-Man #86
, and Ultimate X-Men Vol.
in its TPB form. Other Marvel notables being
released include Books of Doom #1 (of 6), a
second printing of Friendly Neighbourhood
Spider-Man #1
, Marvel Must Haves:
Spider-Man / Black Cat: The Evil That Men Do #1-3

(recommended to those who didn’t catch them several
years ago, as the series will finally get finished
over the next few months), and Thing #1 by
writer Dan Slott. DC is releasing All Star
Superman #1
, which I’m betting will be the top
seller of the month (or, at worst, second to
Infinite Crisis), Mad Kids #1 (a Mad
magazine aimed at a younger crowd), and Supergirl
