Hype for Fantastic Four: Grand Design. Can we get Michael Fiffe's Spider-Man: Grand Design next pls?



Oct 25, 2017
I didn't realise Joe Hill has a new comic out.
Why am I not reading this?

Like picking up a new comic on Wednesday and smelling it right in front of the cashier's bewildered and horrified face.
If that cashier was a true connoisseur he wound nod knowingly and give you a slight smile as if to say 'I understand '.

Edit: and I'll try at least the first issues of all of those Xbooks.

October is the best!!!

DC is pretty hype this month. Hill House stuff, Hellblazer's return, fuckin' up the KKK. Good stuff.

Scrolling down, I realize Marvel is also pretty hype this month. I guess it's just a good month for comics? Thanks for the new thread, Tyrant Rave .

And yes, there are a lot of nice things coming out this month. I've been cutting back heavy on comics last few months but I'm super interested in Si Spurrier Hellblazer. Might jump on that.

And random question since I know we have some NY people here: anyone going to AnimeNYC?? I think I will be going as a bit of a last minute decision lol. Would be fun to meet up with some people!

My Canadia bff wants to know what online stores have house of x/powers of X comics. He is trying to complete his collection and is promising some juicy ER insider info if I find some for him.

Pretty interesting month, with two new runs I have in mind. As far as X-Men goes, I am definitely sold on checking out the main book now, and will probably look at Marauders at a later time. I am also very interested in The Batman's Grave, being on board for Warren Ellis tackling the bat.

After Ironheart is done, I'll probably just keep it at these two plus Gideon Falls for my monthly pulls for the time being (maaybe Tynion's run on Batman later also through).
