Shit the Bed! It's a comic book read off!

Thanks to XmasX for mentioning that he read a shit-ton of comics a couple of weeks ago. Well sir, I accept your challenge! I too, shall read an ass-load of comics! Our "contest" began 3 weeks ago and has been heated, to say the least. So, now we're keeping a list of all comics read that week. The read off starts every Wednesday(NCD*) and goes through Tuesday(NCE**).

Here's my list from last week(12th-18th), I won't be reviewing my entire list every week...don't worry:
  • Serenity#1 Dark Horse Joss Whedon/Will Conrad
  • Judenhass Gn Aardvark/Vanaheim Dave Sim
  • Batlash #4 DC Peter Brandvold and Sergio Aragones/Dave Severin
  • Walking Dead #47 Image (still hate this book) Kirkman/Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn
  • BPRD 1946 #3 Dark Horse (every "Hellboy universe" book is awesome) Mignola
  • Evil Dead #3 Dark Horse Mike Verheiden/John Bolton
  • Abe Sapien #2 Dark Horse Mignola/Jason Alexander (the dude from Seinfeld? no.)
  • Doctor Who #2 IDW Gary Russell/Nick Roche
  • Locke and Key #1 IDW (written by Stephen Kings son) Joe Hill/Gabriel Rodriguez
  • Screamland #1 Image Harold Sipe/Hector Casanova
  • Cemetery Blues #2 Image Ryan Rubio/Thomas Boatwright
  • Gutsville #3 Image comics, Puritanical society trapped in the belly of a giant sea beast with art by Frazer Irving!
  • Avengers Fairy tales #1 Marvel C.B. Cebulski/Joao Lemos
  • Goon #22 Dark Horse - This comic is the the shit, the writing and art by Eric Powell art top shelf. Check out the definition of the word "Goon": 1921, "stupid person," from gony "simpleton" (c.1580), of unknown origin, but applied by sailors to the albatross and similar big, clumsy birds (1839); sense of "hired thug" first recorded 1938 (in ref. to union "beef squads" used to cow strikers in the Pacific northwest), probably from Alice the Goon, slow-witted and muscular (but gentle-natured) character in "Thimble Theater" comic strip (starring Popeye) by E.C. Segar (1894-1938). She also was the inspiration for British comedian Spike Milligan's "The Goon Show." What are now "juvenile delinquents" were in the 1940s sometimes called goonlets. Word.
  • Simon Dark #5 and #6 DC Writen by Steve Niles(30 Days of Night) with art by Scott Hampton. This book get better with each ish, organized white collar crime with dark occult goings-on in Gothan city.
  • Lone Ranger and Tonto #1 Dynamite Good comic book, even though the artist likes to put mascara on the Lone Ranger and he can't draw horses none to good.
  • Iron Fist #13 Marvel Matt Fraction(the Order, Five fists of Science) and Ed Brubaker(Captain America, Criminal) are two of the best writers going! Still one of the best comic books every single month!
  • The Order #9 Marvel Matt Fraction and Barry Kitson
  • Captain America #36 Marvel Ed Brubaker, Butch Guice and Mike Perkins. Bucky is the new Cap and it rules!
  • Dead of Night #2 Marvel Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Brian Denham
  • Astro City Special DC Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson
  • Thor #7 Marvel Micheal Straczynski and Oliver Copial
  • Iron Man #27 Marvel Daniel and Charles Knauf/Roberto De La Torre
