I was only like 16/17 then, and I think it might have been school holidays, so that's why I was able to make the trek down to Nottingham.

After a careful review of next week's shipping list I narrowed down my choice for next week to a few different options.

Hellboy. Picked this last time and until Mignola answers our 5 questions I say we boycott his comics even if they are the best being published.

GI Joe: Cobra Civil War #0. Kind of sounds interesting, but the RG hates licensed comics.

Incredible Hulks #626. Good solicit text, I'm just way over Pak on Hulk.

Journey Into Mystery #622. Let's call this the runner-up. It's only not the pick because it's a FI tie-in and I didn't want to be the first to open that can of worms.

New Avengers #11. lol, not really but I did read the last issue for the Chaykin and it wasn't terrible.

Punishermax #12. New arc, but I've kind of been meaning to check it out in trades.

Before I announce my pick, what's up with Marvel's retard scheduling on these .1 books? I probably would have picked one had one been available, seems like there should be one every week.

Anywho the pick is...

Uncanny X-Men #535
as selected by amlah6


"BREAKING POINT" When the X-Men left the militaristic alien Breakworld, its political structure was reduced to ashes. It didn't stay that way forever. Now a warship is crossing the gulf of space, with a mission that will strike the lives of star-crossed lovers Colossus and Kitty Pryde with all the force of a meteor. Join them as they discover what the vessel them means for them, mutantkind and the rest of the Earth. All courtesy of KIERON GILLEN and TERRY DODSON! Part 1 (of 4).

Ha ha, I just picked an X book. Actually, apart from Jude's stubbornness with XMF we don't do them that often.

Hopefully we can get through next week without anyone calling Gillen a twat again. I like Gillen a lot so I want it to be good and it features Kitty and follows up with stuff from Whedon's run so if I had to pick something random this seemed like as good a random choice as any and yes I will actually go to a shop next week and buy this.

Actually, I think I've met him and he's a really nice guy, I just don't get involved as much in drama anymore :(

Good pick David Snowlah Einstein.

This will be the second Review Group pick which falls on a make or break issue for me. The stakes have never been higher!

Also for the wannabe Herald poster known as Punchy, I made a post recommending Phonogram 81 days before you ever even mentioned the comic on Old Rama.

You sir are a poser of the worst sort.

I hope it's good and that Gillen goes on to have a Claremont-esque run so that Phonogram can return through ICON. 8)

Just my mom. It's based on his character's crotches.

Gillen on X-Men has gotten off to a good start already, #534.1 was really good.

Tell your mom if she posts here she can have a regular column.

Her column could be big, or extra-long, however she likes it. Or maybe she'd like two columns? That might be hard on her though.
