Weekly Want List – November 3rd, 2010

Here these are the funny books I want this week!  Do you think I should add the prices for each of these and total it up at the end?  I’ll think on it for a week.  So finally, here we are!

Dark Horse
Baltimore: The Plague Ships #4 – Not too thrilled with the series.  If it doesn’t pick up here I’m dropping it.

Strange Science Fantasy #5 – Scott Morse’s one-and-done tales tickle my fancy and are a must for anyone suffering from a serious case of Event Fatigue.  I’m excited for this next installment.

Invincible #75 – The Viltrumite War is building to it’s inevitable climax, which should be awesome! but I’m worried about Eve back on the home front.  GIMME!

Marvel Comics
Chaos War #3 – Herc is back and he and Earth’s mightiest heroes are throwing down with a cosmic pantheon ready to turn the universe into a burned out cinder.  I love it when Hercules punches things.

Ultimate Comics New Ultimates #3 – The titles for these books are just getting ridiculous.  Frank Cho’s art is brilliant but what is Thor’s deal?  Guess I’ll just have to read to find out.

Warriors 3 #1 – These guys are hilarious and the fact that they’re being written by one of the most solid scribes in comics, a Mr. Bill Willingham of Fables fame, means this is a must have.

Alan Moore’s Neonomicon #2 – That scene in the first issue with the guy and the cops and the painting?  So creepy.  I MUST have this second issue.  Plus it’s Alan Moore’s “return” to comics.  Again.

The Art of Darksiders – I feel kind of funny seeing as I just filled out a Dark Horse survey that asked me what video games I would like to see turned into comics.  This was one of those games, but it also asked which properties I would like to see turned into art books.  This is also one of those.  Joe Madureira’s art got me into comics WAY back in my day and I’m a fervent follower of all his work, but the $40 price tag will probably keep me from purchasing it.

What To Do When You Meet Cthulhu – Billed as a “survival guide” for meeting H.P. Lovecraft’s famous Elder Gods, this book sounds like a good little read.  Granted I probably won’t end up purchasing it, but it does sound fun.

Xenozoic TP Complete Collection – Ever since I’ve read Panel Discussions, a brilliant book in which artists talk about their process of creating  comics (there’s WAY more to it than that but I digress), I’ve wanted to read Xenozoic.  Mark Schultz’s portion of the book really made we want to pick up his stuff however, like the Darksiders book, it’s $40 and I can’t really afford it right now.
