Shipping Nooz -- Here's a look at what I'm picking up at the comics shop this week.

COMING WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 15TH

AMERICA'S BEST COMICS
SMAX #3 (Of 5) $2.95 -- Unbelievably strong, if you liked Top 10 but eschewed Smax, you made a serious error that it's not too late to rectify. Check this out for complex drama, comedy and horror, in that way that gave Alan Moore his deserved reputation as the best writer to ever work in comics.

TOM STRONG'S TERRIFIC TALES #8 $2.95 -- Every issue has been a mixed bag, but there's usually one story that makes it worth picking up. It should be noted that nothing really takes the place of Alan Moore and Chris Sprouse giving us the real thing, though.

DARK HORSE
HELLBOY WEIRD TALES #5 $2.99 -- Every issue has been a mixed bag, but there's usually one story that makes it worth picking up. It should be noted that nothing really takes the place of Mike Mignola giving us the real thing, though.

DC COMICS
GOTHAM CENTRAL #12 $2.50 -- Hard to believe it's been a year already, but Greg Rucka, Ed Brubaker, Michael Lark and their colleagues have made this one of the more compelling DCU titles, and one of the few that I buy.

SUPERMAN BATMAN #3 $2.95 -- One of two Jeph Loeb titles on my list this week; I'm not sure of the long-term worth of this title, but there's been some nice character interaction in the early issues.

MARVEL
HULK GRAY #1 (Of 6) $3.50 -- It's been years since I've been entertained by a Hulk story; Bruce Jones's take has been mind-numbingly dull. I liked Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's previous efforts on Spider-Man, Daredevil, Batman and Superman, and I suspect their traditionalist/iconic treatment will work exceptionally well on this character.

MARVEL MASTERWORKS AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VOL 3 2ND ED. $49.99 -- I have the first two volumes, and I really think the Lee/Ditko Spidey is a highlight of superhero comics history, so I'll probably be picking this up.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #48 $2.25 -- Who ever would have thought that not only would it last this long and be this good, but that Bendis and Bagley wouldn't miss an issue? Congratulations, guys.

AVATAR PRESS
ALAN MOORE'S YUGGOTH CULTURES #1 (Of 3) $3.95 -- This could go either way. I loved The Courtyard but haven't cared much for some other Moore/Avatar material like Magic Words or Another Suburban Romance. The anthology nature of the title means there's hope, at least.
