So what good choices does GLX have for next week?

House Of Mystery Halloween Annual #1 (it has stories from a lot of Vertigo books, plus a HoM framing story)

Deadpool #900 (I hate Pool, but the creative team is good, and it's a clever gimmick)

Incredible Hercules #136 (Not a new storyline, but it's Thorcules versus Hercuthor and it's awesome)

Punisher: Frank Castle MAX #75 (Punisher anthology)

Uncanny X-Men #516 (Magneto is back!)

Web Of Spider-Man #1 (New Spidey book, this issue features Kaine, Spider-Girl and Frog-Man)

Liberty Comics CBLDF #2 (It's for charity, and there's a lot of cool stuff here)

The Anchor #1 (New BOOM! book by Phil Hester, it's about God or something)

It was ok, but I'm not getting anything from it to do backflips over. Mostly I kept feeling like I've seen all this before and wasn't surprised much. I guess I don't like comic characters sporting other people in their heads--it always seems like the books are in large part composed of the two personas arguing.

It reminded me very much of the first issue of Spawn.

I'd say that The ANchor and Liberty Comics seem like the best books out of that bunch, but Deadpool is probably the best business decision.

That's what I think, but I can't figure out the angle.

I guess the same writer here is writing the Don Bluth Space Ace book next week based on the video game, is that right?

Weird.

I concur.

but Deadpool is probably the best business decision.


Ewww, gross. Plus let's not give Punch and HoJ another reason for a pricing slapfight.
