This Week's Shopping List: September 28, 2005

Wow. I'm currently in Philadelphia on business, and I plan to swing by 2005 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award Winning Night Flight Comics on my way home from the airport tomorrow morning. And there is such a lot to pick up. More than I can possibly buy, especially considering the number of trades.

Usually, I will post an image of this week's most anticipated book, but I can't find a coverscan for the new volume of Yotsuba&!. I will give the honor to Steady Beat, therefore. Rivkah's made waves in the community with her passion, and I'm interested to see what she does on paper.

I finally read Sharknife, and the timing couldn't be better ... the followup, Peng, looks like much videogame fun. The Kingdom Hearts manga is a completely unknown quantity, but my oldest daughter was utterly captivated by the game and we should have fun reading it together. Showcase Presents, DC's answer to Marvel's Essentials, hits the stands this week with two volumes of Silver Age goodness at just under ten bucks a pop. Ellis' JLA Classified is a great read so far, and the main title promises some serious Infinite Crisis lead-in. Young Avengers is always welcome and is one of the best things Marvel's doing these days, though a Jenkins/Romita Sentry could join the shortlist.

  • Adventures Of Superman #644
  • Jack Cross #2
  • JLA #119
  • JLA Classified #12

It's lists like these that I'm thankful I'm only getting three titles this week (Adventures of Superman, JLA and OMAC). I was worried I've been spending too much on comics. Three titles a week on average sounds good to me.
