The Stuff I Buy Week 3.

After the mammoth amount of comics that comprised last weeks order, I am pleased to say that this week looks a little more sensible.

JUL058295 ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #643 SECOND PTG $2.50 - Think I will skip this, much as I love DC, the second print thing has kind of passed me by these days. I even skipped on the Spider-Man House of M 2nd Prints.

JUN050360 DC SPECIAL THE RETURN OF DONNA TROY #4 (OF 4) $2.99 - After a bum first issue, I am pleased to say this book has picked up steam heading to its conclusion.

AUG050181 DETECTIVE COMICS #812 $2.50 - I have stopped reading this City of Crime storyline, sorry. Dave Lapham might write a kick-ass Matrix story and Stray Bullets, but his Batman doesn't do it for me.

AUG050221 JSA #78 $2.50 - I started buying this for the Infinite Crisis cross-overs and god help me, I don't know how to stop.

AUG050224 OUTSIDERS #29 $2.50 - Thank god Winnick is back, that 2 issue fill-in did nothing for me whatsoever.

AUG050231 RANN THANAGAR WAR #6 (OF 6) $2.50 - The only Infinite Crisis miniseries I havn't enjoyed. Its not that there is anything wrong with it, I just don't care for any of the characters.

JUL058321 SUPERGIRL #1 THIRD PTG $2.99 - Another one I will probably skip, nice as they are and all.

AUG050198 SUPERMAN SHAZAM FIRST THUNDER #2 (OF 4) $3.50 - First issue started off promising, but not enough to judge the series on. Solid characters and creators though.

AUG050290 VERTIGO FIRST OFFENSES TP (MR) $4.99 - An awesome book to get and lend out to people who are a little dubious about reading comics, the last one of these Vertigo put out I used to get a load of people into comics.

JUL058296 WONDER WOMAN #220 SECOND PTG $2.50 - I think I'll have to skip on this.

JUL050258 WONDER WOMAN #221 $2.50 - But this one I will have to get. Loving Greg Ruckas Wonder Woman run.

AUG051673 FELL #2 $1.99 - It's Ellis, it's monthly, it's cheap. And it's good too.

FEB051648 RISING STARS HC $69.99 - Bastards! I bought the extremely expensive Dynamic Forces Leather Bound HC's (Remarked Editions too) Vol. 1 and 2 for $100 each, only for them to not do the third volume. I hate DF. Where's my American Flagg while I'm whinging.

JUL051703 RISING STARS VOICES OF THE DEAD #5 (OF 6) $2.99 - Its average, but being purchased out of some misguided concept of loyalty to JMS.

JUN058283 ASTONISHING X-MEN SECOND PTG VARIANT #12 $2.99 - Have to check this one out, if the cover is awesome I will grab it. I love the disparity of the reprints though, Issues 7, 8, 10 and 12 get reprints!

JUL058045 GHOST RIDER RETAILER VARIANT #1 (OF 6) PI - Didn't even hear about this? Whats going on, I presume its a variant in the same style as New Avengers and Sentry.

AUG051928 MARVEL TEAM-UP #13 $2.99 - Falling behind, not read this since #7, I do love the randomness (and obscurity) of the team ups. Issue 14 is a must read.

MAY051811 POWERS #13 (MR) $2.95 - Great series, shame #12 was so late though. Hopefully Bendis will be back on the letetrs page this month.

AUG051954 PUNISHER #26 (MR) $2.99 - Christ, I am bored. Does anyone else want to see Ennis do something refreshing and original?

AUG051896 SPIDER-GIRL #91 $2.99 - How the hell has this book made it to 91 issues? it's great and all, but Marvel have tried to cancel it so many times. Long live Spider-girl.

AUG051887 SPIDER-MAN THE OTHER SKETCHBOOK $2.99 - Nice, but ultimately pointless.

AUG051956 SUPREME POWER NIGHTHAWK #2 (OF 6) (MR) $2.99 - Waiting for all 6 issues before I read this.

AUG051941 UNCANNY X-MEN #465 $2.50 - I wish I was strong enough to cancel this.

AUG051976 X-MEN COMPLETE AGE OF APOCALYPSE EPIC BOOK 2 TP $29.99 - I really am tempted to get this and volume one, despite having first prints.

AUG051947 X-MEN UNLIMITED #11 $2.99 - I don't even know if I still get this.

AUG053021 BAREFOOT GEN VOL 4 TP NEW PTG (RES) $14.95 - Diamond UK seems unable to provide us with Volume One of this, which is really annoying as our Volume 2's are just sat there gathering dust and I really want to read them.

APR053461 COMPLETE CALVIN & HOBBES HC $150.00 - Yes, look at it. Every Calvin and Hobbes, ever.

JUN050452 V FOR VENDETTA NEW EDITION HC (MR) $29.99 - Tempted, sorely tempted.

JUN050406 WATCHMEN THE ABSOLUTE EDITION HC $75.00 - Ditto. And a lot better value for money than the Absolute LOEG, which only contained six issues each.

a nice amount for me this week:

If its a Superman related title then I have to have every printing, I'm anal lke that

This book hasn't been as good as I had hoped so I'm glad this is the last issue, it will be nice to have Donna back in the core DCU.

JSA #78
Fantastic book and one I itend to get the full run of

Great toilet reading

Loved the traitor story arc and hope that now Winnick is back we get more quality stories

Its been good but is the weakest of the IC lead in books

See AOS #643

Loved the first issue and can't wait to read more

This book has been fantastic recently, it will probably be the first thing I read this week
