    Right now I ended up buying Popeye 1, The Goon 39, Teen Titans 8, Super Crooks 2 Uncanny X-Men 11, & Secret Avengers 26. Only read Popeye and Goon so far. Popeye's pretty good, provided my only history of him are the old cartoon shorts, but everyone's seems to be in character.

    As for The Goon, I really liked the satire of the comic book medium in this one. With things like reboots, reimagines, going through various different costumes as a way to boost figure sales, with how certain actions increase media awareness, Single Splash images, and all that other stuff. That and the Dark Horse logo on the top being a parody of the newest DC logo had me laughing.

    I got:

    Captain America & Hawkeye #629
    Daredevil #11
    Hellraiser #7

    Hellraiser is the only one I've gotten to read and it's excellent as always.

    AvX: VS #1 - Probably not going to really be an essential part of the main story, but it's neat to have a book that's just nothing but fight scenes. While I'm more familiar with Magneto and Iron Man, I actually enjoyed the fight between The Thing and Namor more. Had some funny humor.

    Rebel Blood #1 & #2 - Hadn't heard of this until recently, but I saw the second printing of #1 was coming out alongside #2 and decided to check it out. I had practically no idea what was going on in #1, but after a few more reads I started picking up certain details and putting things together. Then it started getting pretty good. The flashbacks make it kind of a tricky read, though. #2 was more straight-forward and had a cool sequence with the main character fighting off infected rats and a trio of zombies in a cabin. Love the art. Really looking forward to seeing how the story plays out in the third and fourth episodes.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 100-Page Spectacular - Collects the first three issues from Archie Comics that adapted the first five episodes of the '87 cartoon. I had them as a kid, but they were lost over the years, so I had to get this since I missed out on a previous trade. I wish it was in a more traditional TPB style or hardcover, but it's still a nice little collection.

    And my package of back issues from Mycomicshop.com arrived this week. Robin #1, Showcase 93 #7, and Showcase 94 #10, which fills in the last remaining gaps of my complete "Batman: Knightfall" collection. Batman #484-487 and Detective Comics #654-658, which began the build-up to "Knightfall." Chapel #7, Youngblood #7, and Team Youngblood #22, which completes the "ShadowHunt" storyline for the first era of ShadowHawk. And finally, the regular version of Batman versus Predator #3 to match my copies of the first two (replacing the Prestige Format version I've had for years).

    Mycomicshop.com rocks!

    If I were home now I would pick up The Kung Fu Panda trade #2 and Animal Man #9 and TP #1. Can't wait to get my mitts on that new Animal Man trade.
