Fairly light week for me this week. I'm okay with that. It gives me some breathing room to pick up other things like toys, t-shirts, or in this week's case a very nice third volume of Hellblazer. I was hesitant at first to attempt to read through this still ongoing series in the previous trade format, because it was by name not volume number, but DC did something right and started to reissue this trade collection with volume numbers. Needless to say I started reading it with volume one, and now I'm hooked. Give it a try if you are so inclined.
Besides my graphic novel grab this week I'm looking forward to Saga, DC Universe Presents, Green Lantern Corps, Catwoman, and Fables. I would be listing Justice League, but it got pushed back to next week. Let's hope it doesn't become the first "New 52" title to ship a month late.
As for my reading list:
1) I threw Astonishing X-Men on there to see how Marvel does a gay marriage.
2) I'm actually excited about Avengers Vs X-Men because we finally don't have to look at John Romita Jr. art. I have one question though; why is Cyclops wearing Nightwing Armor?
3) Before Watchmen has yet to really wow me enough to buy single issues.
4) And to be honest, Daredevil hasn't been really holding my interest. It may get cut from the reading list. We will see.
Well thank you for stopping by. Now go out to your local comic shop or another browser window, and get your fix on this new comic book day.

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.
