My pull for this week is below...as you can see I'm not really stretching beyond my Marvel centric books.  While I am impressed with DCs move to recalibrate thier universe and while some of the books might be outstanding, i really just can't bring myself to care.  I'm just not interested in the DC lineup.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #673...really enjoyed SpiderIsland
FEAR ITSELF #7 POINT ONE...I've gone this far, might as well stick with it to the end.
MOON KNIGHT #7...I'll add a Hell yay
NEW MUTANTS #33 XREGB ...love the current X-books and interested to see where they go.
UNCANNY X-MEN #1 XREGB...see above
X-23 #16 ...see above

on the fence:
FEAR ITSELF FEARLESS #2 (OF 12)...read the 1st issue and it was pretty good but not sure if I'll pick...might just wait for MDC in 6mo to follow Sin/Val's journey

While I am impressed with DCs move to recalibrate thier universe and while some of the books might be outstanding, i really just can't bring myself to care.

As a self proclaimed Marvel Zombie, I completely understand. As a fan of comics, I wish you would reconsider  :)
While it is true, comics dealing with Batman and Green Lantern have had little to no change (the bat-books do have some winning titles however ... BIRDS OF PREY being near the top of that list), JUSTICE LEAGUE is nondescript, Superman continues to suck ... in my eyes, haha ... and books like FIRESTORM, DEATHSTROKE, SAVAGE HAWKMAN and a few others fall into the "what the hell was that" category, the  DC "Dark" titles (or titles that are dark in tone) are just blowing the hell out of most everything on the shelves right now.

SWAMP THING, ANIMAL MAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK and WONDER WOMAN (Going to a darker mythological story) are just grade "A" fantastically fun books. And hell, even some of the lighter toned books like Aquaman feels more like a Marvel book than some Marvel books  ;D

I can understand the lack of interest, but man, if you get a chance to read 2 issues in a row of some of the books I just mentioned, I think interest will find you.
 ;)

FEAR ITSELF #7 POINT ONE...I've gone this far, might as well stick with it to the end.

I refuse to buy any "decimal" book. I twitted ...? ... Tweeted ..? ...  ;D briefly with Brubaker and others about that fact. I get the feeling the "points" will not be around too much longer. Just a feeling.

I foresee a future with no point "anythings" and no double freaking shipping months for titles.

Thank you DC for making Marvel a little nervous about some of their decisions over the past two or three years.
 ;D Still a huge Marvel comic fan, just don't have the time to read all the titles I want, but they have been slowly pushing me away with some of the stuff they have been trying. Add in the relentless additions of X books and I just shake my head ... really? Sixteen X-books in one month (counting mini's)? Really?
