Is It Thursday Yet?

(Books are shipping on Thursday this week, due to the holidays.)

Here are the books I'm getting this week:

Hellboy: The Sleeping and the Dead #1 (of 2) (Dark Horse)

A two-part story with art by Scott Hampton. Sounds good to me. Here's a preview.

Action Comics #896 (DC)

I'm enjoying Paul Cornell's ongoing Lex Luthor story in Action Comics, but it's a bit uneven. The first two issues were great, then we had a bit of a dud with the Deathstroke issue, followed by the ridiculously awesome Grodd issue and the fascinating Death issue, and then another let-down featuring Vandal Savage. If the pattern holds up, this issue featuring the Secret Six should be full of awesome.

Detective Comics #872 (DC)

The new creative team on Detective (Scott Snyder and Jock) knocked it out of the park with their first issue last month. In fact, I loved it so much, I'm considering dropping all other bat titles and just concentrating on this one instead.

Flash #8 (DC)

Like the last issue that shipped earlier this month, this one features Scott Kolins on art, while regular artist Francis Manapul gets a head start on the new story arc that starts next month. This one focuses on Reverse Flash.

Teen Titans #90 (DC)

After the last issue, which I thought was terrible and featured a completely out-of-character Damian Wayne, I decided to drop this title and never again pick up a book by J.T. Krul. Now I'm having second thoughts. I really want to enjoy this. I really do! There's a crossover with Red Robin - another book I'm considering dropping from my pull list - coming up, so I think maybe I'll give it a few more issues. I hate myself for spending money on this, though.

Bulletproof Coffin #6 (of 6) (Image)

Bulletproof Coffin has been one of the best series of the year and it's sure to make my top-10 (which I'll be posting in January). I just can't wait to see how it all wraps up in this final issue.


I thought I should point out that the highly anticipated new series written and drawn by David Finch, which was originally supposed to be released on November 24, is finally coming out this week, and I won't be buying it. I personally don't care for David Finch's art at all. I hate his covers for Action Comics, and his interior art in Batman: The Return was just awful. As for his writing talent, I really wouldn't know, since I've never read a word he's written.
