It takes me weeks to find the time to pick up the comics I subscribe to at Criminal Records here in Atlanta. When I’m as busy as I’ve been of late, I end up buying a pretty big stack, all at once. For no reason at all, here I list for you all the titles I picked up this week. Some are subscriptions, some are impulse buys or experiments.

The Surrogates #1 & #2 – Sci-fi detective tale with robots and stuff. Haven’t read it yet.

Jenny Finn: Messiah – Conclusion to the tale of Jenny Finn, now from Boom! Studios.

Books of Magick: Life During Wartime – Got into my subscription pile by… mistake?

The Goon – I have something like four issues of this that I still haven’t read yet.

Ex Machina #15 – I’ve been reading it gingerly after missing a vital issue somewhere. Still great.

Conan #21 – I get it for Cary Nord’s terrifically natural art. Sometimes I even read it.

Daredevil vs. Punisher #5 – Given to me by assumption. Can’t bear the art in it and haven’t read it.

Revelations #3 – Spooky but not yet engrossing. I couldn’t tell you what happened in the last issue.

Silent Dragon #4 – Dunno what’s going on in it, but it’s effing lovely, pencils, inks and all.

Daredevil #78 – They tell me Bendis and Maleev are bailing. I probably will, too, then.

Sea of Red #5 – A little late to get on board, but it’s got vampires, so it’s work-related.

BPRD: The Black Flame #3 – I subscribe to four other titles to be sure I don’t miss this one.

Loveless #1 – Sampling this hard-riding western. Hope it’s good.

Conan and the Demons of Khitai #2 – Conan in Japan or something.

Fear Agent #1 – Dude at the store recommended it. Rockets, monsters, bubble-helmets. Yeah.
