Trees is a slow burn I think. I've read I think 3 issues now and it's not a must have.

Good to know. I heard a lot about issue one, and then ... silence. I guess you are not alone in your feeling of this


I got to thinking about this.  It might be a bad sign that I've read three issues of this comic but couldn't tell you the name of a single character.

Sept reminder request -
Can someone remind me that I want to add SPAWN #249 to my order next month. As crazy as it sounds, I want to prep for issue #250 ... for Al's return. Yes, I know the stigma associated with Spawn, and most are justified, but I checked an issue back about 2 years ago  Cheesy and it wasn't half bad.

I want to get in on the title again, at least for 4 or 5 issues and see if I can once again find love for the character.

So ... thanks and don't let me forget
 Cheesy Cool

Damn ... and now that Original Sin HC has wormed its way onto my order !!!!
 Undecided
Back up to $148 bucks, just like that.
This is getting bad again ... this addiction

Well I chopped, diced, added, subtracted, and rolled my order over and over about 400 times the last few days and when the price hit a lotto like $118.99, I stopped right there and dedicated myself to the order.

I had tried to get that ORIGINAL SIN HC for $25, but I think they may have an Omni come out with the Thor and Iron Man/Hulk issues, or at least I am hoping but even if not, I figure I can always get it later. Had GUARDIANS 3000 in there, to have a conversation piece with Jimmy  Wink, until my boy Dave said he was gonna get it. No need for me to buy when I can borrow  Grin Odd that I was thinking about adding JUSTICE LEAGUE when I didn't really enjoy John's first few issues. I am sure it got better (it had to  Tongue) but I was just in a clicky, cllicky mood and finally came around.  Also decided, as I am 100% gonna get it in HC anyway, to by-pass that Snyder WYTCHES title.

Okay, last one, this is my order for this month  Grin

Ok - Last change.

I dropped Wytches #1 so I could add Thor #1 back on the list.

I'm not touching it anymore!

Unlike Jeff, who is much stronger and decisive than I  Cheesy, I went and changed my order once more. This time taking the HUGE step towards going ONLY HC buying by dropping the AXIS issues (1,2,3 and the UNCANNY AVENGERS #25) and placing in their spot BATMAN HC vol 1.

That gentlemen, is a huge step for me. Once I get caught up on the Bat HC's ... there will be no reason for me to floppy buy any longer. I hope this first major step will not cause me to fall on my face in the next couple of months, especially with Star Wars series coming out in January. Hmmmm .... maybe I will keep only a couple titles in floppy format?
 Cheesy Grin

EDIT - And thanks to Jeff doing the exact opposite of what I just praised him for ...  Wink I have also dropped my Spider-man books. Both Amazing and 2099.
Going to wait another month before I try to drop my beloved FF  Undecided (and its sister series Invaders ... if it isn't canceld next month  Grin)
