Reading Order for 11.2.11

If you've listened to the podcast, you probably know that my sorting ritual is a sacred part of the reading of my comics. Frank and I are chilling at Caribou Coffee and since I went through the public spectacle of divvying my books into a bunch of piles for all the caffeinated world to see, I'd just share it with you all as well!

Must Reads

  • Action Comics - first read for the third month in a row.
  • Fear Itself #7.1 - giving it the benefit of the doubt and hoping to pull on the heart-strings.
  • Uncanny X-Men #1 - I plan to be the authority on it on Friday's episode.
  • Shame Itself #1 - despite my happiness that my buddy Jacob Chabot worked on it, I want to figure out quickly if this is something I'm gonna keep.

Gotta Read 'Em Tonight

  • Mystic #4 - sad to see it go.
  • Animal Man #3 - a little too disturbing to just jump into right off.
  • Snarked #2 - will be a much-needed lightening after Animal Man.
  • OMAC #3 - one of my favorite surprises of the relaunch.
  • Swamp Thing #3 - usually a lot of text, so it might end up knocking me out.
  • Infinite Vacation #3 - the wait has bumped it lower.

Also Rans

  • Detective Comics #3 - don't love the gore, but dig the Tony Daniel Batman.
  • Amazing Spider-man #673 - Slott stories are sooooo full.
  • Moon Knight #7 - who is that on the cover?

Bringing It Home

  • Sweet Tooth #27 - the structure of this story with guest art by Matt Kindt is so dense, I probably won't read it until this weekend.
