It is just past my 1 year anniversary of being back in the comic book game. On July 24, 2019 I arose from the mist and descended upon Chops Comics to pick up House of X #1! Sadly, I couldn't go into the shop today because my man Jason is sick, and is closing the shop for 2 weeks. I needed to fill my urge to read some new books. So instead of picking up EVERYTHING in my weekly pull list video:
I had to decide what new books to pick up from the "other" shop in town. To make sure I wasn't fully cheating on my main spot, I used the following criteria to decide which books to pick up, and which books to savor for later:
1. Is there something for sale which is not on my pull list at Chops that I would like to read?
2. Is there something ON my pull list which I don't mind buying twice!
Here's the reading order for the week:
1. That Texas Blood #2 (Image)
2. Rogue Planet #3 (Oni)
3. Lost Soldiers #1 (Image)
4. Symbiote Spider-Man Alien Reality #5 (Marvel)
5. FCBD Archie/Riverdale
6. Dead Body Road 1-2 (Image/Skybound)
7. TMNT 101-107 (IDW)
8. TMNT Annual (IDW)
Bill and Ted Omnibus
Thor 5 (2nd Printing--cover is DOPE)
Spider-Woman #2 (On Sale Wednesday Variant)
New Previews Magazine
The only thing I didn't find which I'll have to check out digitally is Nailbiter Returns #3 (because I read all 6 trades of Nailbiter last night....and I need more)!
Is there anything else I missed? Something I should check out that you recommend? Hit Me Up! Let me know!
I also did a small live haul video on Instagram where you can see these beauties on the screen, and see what else we chatted about!!
