JUDGE DREDD



I thought you weren't going to get Talon? After the zero issue and #1 I didn't feel it was a have to have.

Why dropping Judge Dredd? Have you even read it yet?  I just got my shipment today and have only just unpacked them.

I wasn't and it isn't, but I found it to be pretty interesting after reading the 0 issue and thought I would carry it for a few

Why dropping Judge Dredd? Have you even read it yet?  I just got my shipment today and have only just unpacked them.

Yes, read it this morning. It was okay, but not what I wanted. Wanted more grit in tone and less bold, vibrant colors and the first story just was not there (second was better). I was hoping for a great book and got just another issue of 2000AD but colored, which is fine, but I can read 2000AD if I want 2000AD.

More of me expecting something that isn't here more than the book was bad, however.

Judge Dredd wasn't bad but it wasn't great either.  A fun read but not something I can't live without.  Dropped.

conan 13

Me being a Conan'ite (Cona'phile?) I really wanted to get this series when it first started, but found I could not get past the 'skinny' Conan. Does that bother you as well? How have the stories been?

skinny conan doesn't bother me.  I just look at it as a different take.  it's been pretty good so far...although I have only read the first few issues.

Added All-New X-Men #7, which should have been there the whole time. Best X-Men book (so far) since the mid-90s.

DCBS was sold out of X-O MANOWAR #1 and #2 and my LCS is now closed on both Mondays AND Tuesdays (doesn't look good for them to reamain) so I had to hit Ebay. Yes, couldn't wait. Impatient ass I am.
 Grin

Got both issues for $9.66 including shipping, a little over retail, but not terrible.
