JOSE MELENDEZ Who's Getting What? BannerPart of the solicitation for Amazing Spider-Man #700.1 reads as follows: One year after his death at the hands of the Superior Spider-Man – PETER PARKER IS BACK! I’m going to assume Peter Parker is not actually back– and this is a flashback story. The whole “One year after his death” plot point seems somewhat misleading. It has been a year (in real time) since Dan Slott wrote one of the worst Spidey stories in the history of forever… But the solicit kinda implies the story takes place after a year of Marvel Comic Book Time (since Peter died). Either way, I won’t be touching this issue. I just wanted to point out that Marvel’s marketing practices seem as disingenuous as ever.

I like Steve Niles’ comics and I like Ash from the Army of Darkness films. I missed the first issue of this new series somehow, but I am interested in checking it out. Hopefully my LCS has Ash and The Army of Darkness #1 still in stock so I can pick it up along with Issue #2. I’m not expecting too much from the series– but it can’t be all that bad. Can it?

I’m completely hooked on the Regular Show animated series… So much so I even enjoy the Boom! comic version sometimes. So I’ll stick with it… Maybe. Last issue wasn’t all that great. And while I know you’re gonna get a stinker now and then– if this new issue is also kinda lame, I’ll be dropping the title like a bad Marvel NOW! comic.

Velvet #1 by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting impressed the hell out of me. It’s easily one of the best comic series debuts of the year. And while it seems like I’ve been waiting for Issue #2 for forever… Hey, it’s finally here. This comic is going to definitely be on top of my stack come Wednesday– no doubt.

 So… What Are YOU Getting This Week?!

    Well this is what I’m meant to be getting but seeing as it took 7 days to get from Chicago to Ireland I’m getting pretty fed up waiting for it. The fucking pony express could have got here sooner and that’s with the fucking horse having to swim the atlantic. It’s now been stuck in a local customs facility for the last 4 days despite there being no fucking taxable items in the package, fucking bureaucracy.

    but here’s what I should be getting

    AIR GEAR OMNIBUS GN VOL 02
    WONDER WOMAN #25
    SUNNY HC VOL 02
    FIRST KINGDOM HC VOL 02
    MARADA SHE WOLF HC
    MANARA EROTICA HC VOL 03 BUTTERSCOTCH
    CONAN AND THE PEOPLE OF THE BLACK CIRCLE #2
    SAVAGE SWORD #6
