Week two has got to be my biggest week for picking up comics. I'm okay with it though because there are numerous titles that I am looking forward to: Green Lantern, Batgirl, Resurrection Man, Suicide Squad, Batwoman, Batman and Robin, Thief of Thieves, and Peter Panzerfaust to name almost half of my pull list.
I am going to give Brian K. Vaughan's new Image book Saga a try because, it is new Brian K. Vaughan, and it looks great with art from Fiona Staples (plus the fact that it is only $2.99). Image is getting a lot of attention lately for some of the books they are putting out and they should, because they are some good books.
And if you hadn't already noticed...NO MARVEL TITLES! From here on out I am going to read Marvel in trade until they can get their collective head out of their ass when it comes to single issues. Marvel please focus on making quality books for a fair price, and stop trying to get the next gimmick to stick or a justification for a price point.
Marvel you have also said that you want to support the brick and mortar stores; then do what DC and other companies have done with Comixology. Give a percentage of the digital comic purchase, if the customer buys through a digital storefront (this goes for you too Dark Horse) to the store of the customers choice. Stop with the coupons!
Well I need to get to reading because I have a lot to get through this week and I don't want to get behind.

Remember you can now find these titles and more in digital format at our Comics Conspiracy - Comixology Storefront or you can still order comics from us directly by visiting the shop, giving us a call (408) 245-6275, or dropping Ryan an email at

As usual I'll be talking comics on The Comic Conspiracy, and on the Geekbox Forums. Now get out there and enjoy some good old fashioned comic book reading.
