This is the thread to comment on the new comics you’ve read this week, tell us whether it was love at first sight or a damp squib. Please refrain from spoiling major plot points, if you have to hide them behind spoiler tags.

Is that We Stand on Guard #1 that I can see? I’m definitely getting that.


#4

I was only planning on picking up JC, but if We Stand On Guard is out then I may try the first issue.


#5

It’s definitely out, evidence on the comic shop table:

Just noticed all the price stickers on the cover of the comics. Urgh. I’m glad my local comic shop doesn’t do that anymore.


#7

I should have Jupiter’s Circle #4 waiting in my box today.


#8

If it upsets you then look away, otherwise give me a link to where your comic shop posts all the latest releases laid out. Fascist.


#9

I was supposed to have five books today (which counts as a large haul for me) but Diamond never sent my LCS the new “Will Eisner’s The Spirit” #1, dammit. I wanted the Cassaday cover for it as well.

Never mind, that just leaves me with: Jupiter’s Circle, Deadly Class, We Stand On Guard and Grant Morrison’s 18 Days.
Hopefully I can get them read today.


#10

I thought 18 Days was abandoned years ago. Has it been resurrected?


#11

No it has not. :wink:

#12

Huh. Will have to grab that. I have the book that detailed the breakdown of the project in the past, and it sounded pretty interesting.


#13

I do get suspicious when you see ‘Grant Morrison’s’ in the title though, like Stephen King’s or Leonard Nimoy’s, it often means they are scripted by someone else off an outline. I have no idea in this case.


#14

Yeah, I’ll try and find out before I buy. I can’t find much information about it online.


#15

That Spirit cover is outstanding.


#16

The first issue is only $1, which is why I feel so relaxed just picking it up.


#17

Do you know if it’s available digitally?


#18

New comics went up on Comixology half an hour ago and I can’t see it there, which is quite an exception nowadays.


#19

Poking around online, I can’t seem to find it digitally either. Their official website doesn’t seem up to date, which doesn’t help.


#20

Re 18 Days. I’ve just had a look and the only writing credit is for Morrison.
