This Month in Comics: February 2012

Well obviously I've sort of fallen off the wagon when it comes to my comic related posts, and at the same time, I worry about overloading my blog for people who don't enjoy them if I DO post weekly.

SO to make it easier on everyone, I'm changing my comic posts to an end of the month roundup.

I admit I am behind on visiting the comic book store and picking up my books, so this month's roundup I thought I'd share my list of the books I am currently subscribed to. These are the books I care enough about to have them automatically 'pulled' for me every month (or every other week as the case may be).

Subscribed Series List:
  1. Amazing Spider-Man
  2. Avenging Spider-Man
  3. Batwoman
  4. B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth: The Long Death (mini-series of 3 issues)
  5. Deadpool
  6. Journey into Mystery
  7. Wolverine & the X-Men
  8. Wonder Woman

I also regularly purchase Animal Man and Swamp Thing on the DC comics digital app.

Then I have my "pending" list. It's a list of titles that I have pulled one or two issues of in order to decide whether I want to subscribe, wait for the trade paperback, or forget about it altogether.

My current pending list:
  1. Adventure Time
  2. Astonishing X-Men
  3. Fanboys vs Zombies
  4. Justice League Dark
  5. Peter Panzerfaust
  6. Scarlet Spider
  7. Secret Avengers
  8. Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi
  9. Steed & Mrs. Peel
Since starting to blog about my comic purchases I have dropped quite a few titles.
I no longer read (not including mini-series that have ended or titles that were cancelled):
Uncanny X-Men, Justice League, John Carter: A Princess of Mars, Action Comics (though I'll pick up the trade), Captain America, Doctor Who, Teen Titans, and once Jeff Lemire finishes his run on Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. I'll be dropping it too.

I'm off to the comic shop tomorrow to catch up on some major reading!

Weekend Wishlist: Way to my Heart

Anyone looking to woo me this Valentine's Day needn't look any further than this treasury.

(I'm trying out a new widget for Weekend Wishlist, so please bear with me if it decides not to show up properly...)

Hearts of the Month: January 2012

The first of each month (in this case, being backdated and hoping no one notices) I have decided to share with you a few of my favourite things that I have come across in the month previous. It could be ANYTHING, the only criteria is that I had to have loved it.

These are my hearts for January:

TV- Rhod Gilbert's Work Experience

WEB - The Traveling Red Dress Movement

ARTIST - Yayoi Kusama

VIDEO - Kristen Bell's Sloth Meltdown
