Yes, It Is Wednesday Yet! + Read in April 2011

If you're wondering why this blog is being updated so sporadically lately, there are many perfectly valid explanations. I'm getting ready for a show (tomorrow night, details here) and that's been eating up a lot of my time. Meanwhile, I've also been going through a bit of an existential crisis, where I'm putting everything into question and wondering whether there's any point to me writing anything at all, let alone a blog about comic books. This happens to me fairly frequently and, hopefully, this too shall pass. (Although the recent blow of Canadians electing a majority Conservative government doesn't help.)

Anyway, some comic books are coming out today, and I will be buying a few of them. Namely:

  • Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth #3 (of 3) (Dark Horse) - although I haven't even read issue #2 yet
  • Superboy #7 (DC) - although last issue sucked, but that was because of the Doomsday crossover
  • Sweet Tooth #21 (Vertigo) - which will be amazing, because it's Sweet Tooth
  • Astonishing Thor #4 (of 5) (Marvel) - I almost forgot this wasn't over
That's a remarkably small pull list for me this week. I'm proud of myself. However, I may also be tempted to try Fear Itself #2, Megaman #1 or iZombie #13. Or maybe I'll forget about all those and pick up a the hardcover of Greg Rucka's Stumptown that came out a few weeks ago.


In other news, here's a list of all the comics I read in April:
  • 5 Ronin #4-5
  • Thor #621
  • Fear Itself #1
  • Nonplayer #1
  • Sweet Tooth #20
  • Superboy #6
  • Flash #10-11
  • Journey into Mystery #622
  • Hellboy: Buster Oakley Gets His Wish
  • Birds of Prey #11
  • Batgirl #20
  • Amazing Spider-Man #658-659
  • Avengers: Children's Crusade #5
  • Wolverine and Jubilee #4
  • Super Dinosaur #1
  • Supergirl #63
  • Teen Titans #94
  • Butcher Baker #2
  • Infinite Vacation #2
  • Madman Special
  • Dark Horse Presents #1 (most of it, anyway)
  • Detective Comics #876
  • Action Comics #900
  • Xombi #2
  • Silver Surfer #3
  • Sigil #2
  • American Vampire #14
  • Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #2
I'm not going to pick my usual top 5 and stinker of the month, but I will say that Super Dinosaur was way better than I expected it to be and Dark Horse Presents was probably the biggest disappointment. If I thought any of this was in any way important, I might even bother to write reviews for both. But I probably won't.
