Help A Brother Out

Another skimpy pull list this week for yours truly, so does anyone have anything new I should try? Just askin'. Maybe an indie or small press comic that I'd enjoy.

P.S. JLA Hitman #1 is already on the list, despite being neither indie or small press.

If you tell me how you got Fallen Angel in that rinky-dink town of yours while we here in the big city didn't, I'll help you out!

30 Days of Night: Beyond Barrow #1. Bill Sienkiewicz art.

Dynamo 5 #7. Excellent superhero comic without all the DC/Marvel crap.

Gutsville #2 came out, so if you can find #1, get them both!

The Umbrella Academy #1 has been getting some good press, and the art is great.

Wasteland #12 came out, so it might be a bit too intricate to jump right in, but you could give it a try.

Zero Killer #2 is a post-apocalyptic Escape From New York kind of thing. If that's your thing.

I hope you get some ideas!

Highwaymen from Wildstorm has been a fun little series despite all odds, seriously I should hate this buddy cop/spy thing but its just too damn fun (of course it's issue #4 of 5 so there's that)

I've heard it's not great but there's Street's of Glory #1 (Ennis doing straight Western) from Avatar.

Oh, and Johnny Hiro #2 from Adhouse. #1 got pretty good reviews (http://www.silverbulletcomicbooks.com/reviews/117770954079934.htm http://www.popcultureshock.com/brendan-adans-picks-pans-scans-april-25-2007/41588/) so I'm planning on checking it out, especially if I can find #1.

I'm too much of a fanboy to recommend an Indi. But I actually enjoyed Countdown to Mystery #1. Jump on my bandwagon!

It came out last week, but the new story arc on Casanova is the balls. You can pickup both issues for $4.

Of the indie type Lobster Johnson came out about a week or so ago. It's not bad.

Not really Indy, but The Walking Dead, Invincible and Dynamo 5 are all excellent non-Big 2 books. The Walking Dead is actually one of my favourite books. Don't let the zombie aspect fool you, this book is a drama and about the characters first. The zombies are merely a back drop to the characters.

Blue Beetle from DC is an incredible and, sadly, poor selling book that reminds me of the early days of Spider-man when it was just Peter and his amazing cast of friends and family with Spider-Man always getting in the way of his responsibilities. Great book, probably one of DC's best and least hyped books.

Immortal Iron Fist gets ignored a lot as well on the Marvel side of things, mainly because people dont want to bother trying a book about a kung-fu character. Brubaker and Fraction are doing an incredible job on that book and its a shame more people dont pick it up.
