Some of this
week’s notables are listed below.
- 100 Bullets #67 – a well reviewed title I haven’t
- Superman: True Brit – the softcover version of the
plotted by John Cleese. I reviewed
it when the
hardcover came out, and wasn’t particularly impressed.
just not British enough.
- Villains United TPB – A collection that led into
- Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne Vol. 5 –
I’ve read great
things about Byrne’s run, but haven’t read it. I’ve
Years of the
Fantastic Four on DVD-ROM, so I’ll be reading
but I’ve got to finish the Spider-Man set first.
(Expect a review of
each when I finish reading them, which may take
- GLA Misassembled – Another series that sounds
interesting but I
can’t quite budget for.
- New Avengers Most Wanted Files – I believe this is
a rundown of
the villains who escaped in the first New
Avengers story arc,
prioritized according to which ones Marvel has plans
- Punisher: Silent Night: A Punisher Christmas
- Secret War Book Five – Well it’s about bloody
time. When a
quarterly series runs late, you’ve got problems. This
isn’t as late
as Spider-Man / Black Cat: The Evil That Men Do
#4 was, but
it’s still late.
- Son of M #1 – The first part of a six issue
- Ultimate Iron Man #5 – The Orson Scott Card series
wraps up. I’ll
grab the TPB version.
- Uncanny X-Men #467 – Along with Secret War, one of
two items I’m
picking up today. I’ve been collecting this lately as
I’ll have every
issue of the title ever published once 40 Years of
finally ships, with the possible exception of a TPB or
two in between
where the DVD leaves off and the time I started
collecting. The DVD
should be out by the end of the year, possibly next
week. A set for
the Avengers is expected in January, and a DVD version
(which is only a slight upgrade from the CD-ROM set
including only the annuals and what’s already
collected) will be out
after that. Rumour has it that Hulk is the next
character on the
list. I’d love to see Daredevil, as well.
