Us DCBS buyers usually have to wait until the 5th of each month to see the sites previews. They have specials that can greatly influence my monthly order, so not sure what I will be adding (or dropping) this month.

According to the new PREVIEWS I know I will be adding the new Judge Dred ongoing, but hoping to see a nice 99 first issue price.
 ;)

Be back in a couple of days.
 ;D

DCBS is updated and I placed my preliminary order.  I'll have to post it later as I can't copy and paste from their site with the iPad  (no idea why not).

I came really Really REALLY close to pulling the trigger on once a month shipping.  Just not sure I can wait that long.

Also almost got sucked in by the Marvel NOW! bundle which offered all 18 of the Marvel NOW! issues for $33 (50% off cover).  I added it, then remembered how I got pulled in on Before Watchmen, then removed it.  Went back and only added the issues I wanted at the standard 40% discount and still saved $20 over the bundle.

As of now, though I am sketchy on the X-Men title ... may come to senses and remove it. Was also able to fight the urge to add the big three (Cap, Thor and Iron Man). Would've added at least two, but more double shipping of $3.99 books just scared me away.
Stuck with monthly shipping. I still have my stack from last week I haven't touched. The further you are away from the comics, the easier it is to ween yourself.

Already making changes.  Dropped Captain America after getting a look at JRJR's art in Previews and dropped Masks as well.

Added Indestructible Hulk because I just love most of what Mark Waid does.  Decided I needed to check this out.

I was also tempted to try out Jason Aaron's Thor but he had a pretty epic fail IMO on his Hulk run so I'm wary.

Killed the X-men. Just couldn't bring myself back into that world.

Also killed Deadpool as my boy said he was getting that. I will just read his copy  ;D

TALON and CLONE also get the ax as I was just feeling the cut bug.

has anyone read "knights of the living dead"?  i am thnking about adding this to my list, but not sure yet/.  it's either that or some carl barks donald duck action.


Title: Re: September Pre-Orders
Post by: Perry on September 09, 2012, 05:58:32 AM
No, sorry, no help from me.
(Ya can't go wrong with the Duck, however)
 ;)


Title: Re: September Pre-Orders
Post by: Jeff on September 10, 2012, 05:55:48 PM
Finally cut Secret Avengers.  I'm not a Captain Britain fan and I'm really surprised I stayed on this title as long as I have.

Also dropped Talon as I'm not sure I want to get sucked into it.


Title: Re: September Pre-Orders
Post by: EmeraldWarrior420 on September 10, 2012, 06:07:10 PM
Added the first 2 issues of Thor to my list. Figured, what the hell, I'm not buying as many DC Comics as I used to so I might as well give it a shot.

american vampire 33
black kiss II 4

i decided to go with the duck, perry.  i figure if nothing else, the girls can read it sometime if they so desire.  probably wouldn't let them read "knights of the living dead."

Who knows, one night, in a drunken stupor ...  ;D

Also dropped Talon as I'm not sure I want to get sucked into it.

My reasoning as well


Title: Re: September Pre-Orders
Post by: Jeff on September 19, 2012, 08:16:04 PM
Added Earth 2 back.

I know, I know!  I've dropped this twice already. But dang that #0 issue was a fun read.  And now I want to know the whole story.   >:(


Title: Re: September Pre-Orders
Post by: Perry on September 26, 2012, 05:20:43 AM
Added :
-CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 to the list. I like the description in PREVIEWS, and as much as I tried to fight it, it made the list at the last minute.
-TALON #2 I added BACK on. Just saw the previews at CBR and looked pretty interesting, for the little they showed. Was worried about the art, but looks fine.
-ALL NEW X-MEN ... Why? Just why am I doing this to myself? May once again change my mind on this. The logical side of my brain just cringes every time I add it to my list, while the curious side keeps making me do it.
 ::)

Of course I should also cancel PREVIEWS as they keep pissing me off and holding up my orders by coming out a week later than they should. Just got another e-mail the other day they (Diamond) are doing it again.
