Damnit. Ya got me thinking about too much  ;D Decided to have a first run through, sans order form ...

BATMAN #24
SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #4

F4 #13
FF #13 (Ordered 4-12 a couple days ago, and got 1-3 off Ebay)
THOR GOD of THUNDER #14
THOR CROWN of FOOLS  (maybe)

BLOODSHOT and H.A.R.D. CORPS #15
HARBINGER #17

LAZARUS Vol1 TPB

I think that is what my order will end up being. Of course I may throw a special title or two in as they do temp me sometimes. Like last months GUARDING THE GLOBE #4 for only 70 I mean what the hell? Why not.
 ;D

Or, as normal people would say ...  "they tempt me sometimes"  ::)
 :D

Ouch. BATMAN #24 is $6.99 (or $4.19 for us DCBS'ers), That better not be just 20 pages of story and then 2 reprint issues from 1968 or something.
 >:(

And WTF Marvel? You solicit this? - INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK SPECIAL #1 
Written, Drawn and Covers by ... wait for it .... TO BE DECIDED ??
 ::)

EDIT - I see WALKING DEAD has about 10 different covers this month.

Very proud of myself. For now. I was able to avoid adding about 5 more titles to my pull this month. Like that new JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000 by Keith Giffen, J. M. DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire. Really wanted to add that. Also that new series from Brubaker and Epting VELVET.
Staying strong.
 ;D

My order ...

PRVIEWS (So I can more easily spot HC's I want)

BATMAN #24
SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #4

F4 #13
FF #13
THOR GOD of THUNDER #14

BLOODSHOT and H.A.R.D. CORPS #15
HARBINGER #17

LAZARUS Vol1 TPB

Next month gonna try and cut another title or two. It's getting harder and harder every month. Dropping titles I already get is one thing, but avoiding new titles I really want to try, is really F'n hard. But I know the end result, buying only HC's and the occasional trade, will make me very happy ... if I can get there.
 :)

Ok - here's what I actually ordered.  I don't know whether to curse Perry or thank him.  I missed Velvet and Justice League 3000 on my first pass and likely would have skipped them if he hadn't pointed out the creative teams.  Decided against Fantomex MAX and the Damian Batman mini series.

DC Comics
BATMAN #24  I love how DCBS had a big message saying "NOTE PRICE" on this one.   ;D
FOREVER EVIL #2 (OF 7) 
JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000 #1 - I'll blame Perry if I hate it.....and if I love it too.   ;D

Image
FATALE #19 (MR) 
JUPITERS LEGACY #4 - BUY THIS BOOK!!!  I really like it.
MORNING GLORIES #33 (MR) 
MORNING GLORIES #34 (MR) 
SIDEKICK #3 (MR) - I'm hoping this is good.  J Michael Straczynski had typically done well with his original creations.
VELVET #1 (MR) - I'll blame Perry if I hate it.....and if I love it too.   ;D
WALKING DEAD #115 CVR A (MR) 
WALKING DEAD TYREESE SPECIAL (MR) 

Marvel
CABLE AND X-FORCE #15 
KICK-ASS 3 #5 (OF 8 ) (MR) 
THOR GOD OF THUNDER #14 

"INFINITY"
GUARDIANS OF GALAXY #8 INF 
INFINITY #4 (OF 6) 
INFINITY #5 (OF 6) 
NEW AVENGERS #11 INF 
NOVA #9 INF 

"BATTLE OF THE ATOM"
ALL NEW X-MEN #17 
UNCANNY X-MEN #13 
WOLVERINE AND X-MEN #37 
X-MEN #6 
X-MEN BATTLE OF ATOM #2 (OF 2) 

Valiant
HARBINGER (VU) #17
X-O MANOWAR (VU) #18 REG CRAIN

A little of both probably.  ;D

Decided against Fantomex MAX and the Damian Batman mini series.

Both were also hard for me to ignore. Really interested in Fantomex as a character, although I don't know why ... maybe just the look? And was also intrigued to see what Kubert could do, script wise

BATMAN #24  I love how DCBS had a big message saying "NOTE PRICE" on this one.   ;D

Yeah, still shocked at that price point

JUPITERS LEGACY #4 - BUY THIS BOOK!!!  I really like it.

Oh yeah, on it. In trade (But I shall wait for HC first)

SIDEKICK #3 (MR) - I'm hoping this is good.  J Michael Straczynski had typically done well with his original creations.

Did you miss his 10 GRAND that premiered from IMAGE a couple months ago? I read it. I liked the first two issues. But it has art by Ben Templesmith which I like and it fits the tone perfectly, but a lot of people don't enjoy his art, which could be why you skipped it.

Well to elevate some of that blame ... you may want to check out THIS (http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/08/08/dc-comics-fires-kevin-maguire-reworks-justice-league-3000-from-scratch/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter)
Situation may not be what it seems, but for now, I am NOT regretting my decision not to add this title. This could be yet another straw in DC's ever growing pile laid heavily on the back of that poor camel.

Good news.  Kevin Maguire got hired at Marvel. He's doing Guardians of the Galaxy #10.


Title: Re: August pre-orders. Whatcha gettin?
Post by: Perry on August 11, 2013, 08:46:48 AM
Yep, still waiting on my boy Dave to get back to me ... see if he is getting GOTG so I can read the issue  ;D

Hopefully it will lead to more work at Marvel. DC seems to, once again, not recognize a good creator when they have them.

Post by: EmeraldWarrior420 on August 11, 2013, 11:10:18 AM
That sucks for Maguire.

But a loss for him, is a gain for us.

In his stead, we're getting Howard Porter to pencil the book. The same Porter that drew JLA during Morrison's run (still the best JLA run to this day, IMO).


Title: Re: August pre-orders. Whatcha gettin?
Post by: Perry on August 14, 2013, 11:31:10 AM
Well, that didn't last long. I just added FF to my pull and now I see where Fraction is off both FF and F4 as of next months issues, sooner for FF I think ... so I killed those issues.

I said I was gonna work on cutting one or two more titles next month ... went ahead and jumped on it. I just have to hold firm on the F4 this time. I have to remember I can still get them in trade if I need.

Brings me down to 1 Marvel, 2 DC and 2 Valiant. Never, ever could I have thought this possible. And hell, Superpooper better "wow" me or that suckers gone. I know I am going to add the Inhuman title once it comes out, I know that, and I will always add a Dr. Strange or Moon Knight book, but for the most part I have killed my monthly titles down to nothing and almost set for Trade/HC buying !!!!

I've added back Archer and Armstrong to the pull list and also added Eternal Warrior.

I've added back Archer and Armstrong to the pull list and also added Eternal Warrior.

That puts you back to four titles again, right? Isn't that close to being worth the bundle?
4 x $2.59 = $10.36
7 book bundle = $13.96

I don't know man, for $3 extra you get 3 more books. Sounds like a winning plan. (Quantum and Woody is pretty funny)

Lol yes - I went back and checked that too.  But Shadowman and Quantum & Woody weren't my cup of tea.  I also lost interest on Bloodshot during the crossover.  So even though I can get them for $1 each I figured I'd save it for something I want to read.   ;D

I hear ya (Didn't know you tried Q&W ... I found the 1st issue decent but the 2nd issue very funny). But hey $3 is $3  8)
