Pull List -- Here's a quick rundown of what I plan to pick up at the comic shop this week.

* BLACK SUMMER #1 (OF 7) -- Avatar releases the "first issue" of Warren Ellis and Juan Jose Ryp's look at superheroes who call bullshit on the political status quo. Here's my review of Black Summer #0. Also arriving this week, in real bookstores, anyway, is Ellis's prose novel that I recently reviewed, Crooked Little Vein.

* BONE VOL. 6 OLD MANS CAVE COLOR ED HC -- I think this came out a week or two back, but I was lax in ordering it, so I get it this week.

* BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER SEASON 8 #5 -- Not much to say about this one, except that if you liked the show, you will like the comic book sequel very much.

* DOKTOR SLEEPLESS #1 -- Another Ellis title from Avatar. I haven't read any preview copies or anything, so I have no idea what the quality of it will be like, but I'm always up for an Ellis #1. Fingers crossed.

* FUTURAMA COMICS #32 -- For my son...

* MAGGIE THE MECHANIC LOCAS VOL 1 TP -- I hadn't realized these were going to include material not in the gigantic hardcovers of a couple of years ago, so now I am onboard with buying all these softcover re-releases as well. This will mark the fourth or fifth time I've bought some of this material, but you know, it actually is just that goddamned good.

* LOVE & ROCKETS VOL 2 #20 -- Giant-size, this one is gonna be awesome.

* PREVIEWS VOL XVII #8 -- The less said about these, the better.

* SIMPSONS CLASSICS #13 -- Again, for the boy.

* TEEN TITANS GO #45 -- And ditto.

Three collections (Bone and the L&R volumes) mean this is a pricier than usual week, but luckily I have a doctor's appointment Wednesday, so the exorbitant co-pay will make me even poorer. Yay comics! Yay corrupt, inefficient health care system! Yay!
