What I'm Buying: 21 June 06

X Isle #1 (Of 5), $2.99 – BOOM! has been a real surprise, turning out consistent quality work with little fanfare. Based on their track record, I'll try this.

Tarot Witch Of The Black Rose Dlx Ed #38, $19.99 – Um, no. Just…no.

Comic Book Holocaust GN, $9.95 – Evil fun at the expense of Marvel and DC from the pen of Johnny Ryan.

52 Week #7, $2.50 – Pacing problems aside, this is still better than a weekly comic has any right to be. Needs more Question, though.
All Star Superman #4, $2.99 – Zee zee zee! It’s the Jimmy Olsen issue!
Flash The Fastest Man Alive #1, $2.99
Justice #6 (Of 12), $3.50
Manhunter #23, $2.99
Showcase Presents Superman Vol 2 TPB, $16.99 – A big fat brick of surreal silver age goofiness!
Superman Batman #27 (resolicited), $2.99 – (Maybe.)

Fallen Angel Idw #6, $3.99 – In which broken, crazy people plot to get out of town, literally. Plus: Why God doesn’t answer your prayers!

Casanova #1, $1.99 - Looks worth a try for two bucks.
Invincible Vol 6 Different World TPB, $14.95 - Whitley has finally agreed to go to the Hillman mixer with Dwayne. The only problem? He already has two other dates! Can Invincible save the day?

Captain America #19, $2.99 – This is kind of a lame duck entry, as everything’s been turned upside down by Civil War. I guess we’ll have to wait out this storyline to catch up with “real time”.
New Avengers #20, $2.99 – Another lame duck. I really don’t care about Mr. Glowy. I expect him to be dispatched with little fanfare so we can get on with Civil War fallout. But I ordered the Goddamned thing, so I suppose I’ll buy it.
Ultimates 2 #11, $2.99 – I have specific instructions, sealed in a safe deposit box, instructing my heirs to purchase Ultimates 2 #13 when it’s released, and read it to my grave, on the off-chance I can somehow hear them in the afterlife. I expect this will happen in some sort of cyber-cemetary with virtual tombstones.

110 Per Cent GN, $12.95
- Tony Consiglio is way underrated, and doesn’t do nearly enough comics work. Apparently this is about a boy band and the middle aged moms that love them? Whatever – I’m on board.
