Comics Today

Here's what I picked up today at the Comics Shop:

- Avengers #11 - Ah, that last page - it's about time!

- Secret Avengers #11 - Hidden adventures from WWII? Cool!

- Captain America #616 - the 70th Anniversary issue! Lots of talented people kicked in on this one.

- King Conan #2 - An iconic moment for Conan in "The Scarlet Citadel." Great stuff!

- The Incredible Hulks #625 - the wrap-up to a nasty visit to the Savage Land.

- Incognito: Bad Influences #5 (of 5) - This has been mighty good.

- Justice Society of America #49 - Wrapping up some dirty business.

- Thor #621 - The spectacular finale to the alien invasion story.

- Ultimate X #4 - Hey, they're still publishing this?

- Alter Ego #100 - at $20 a heck of a bite - and probably my last regular issue (though I'll pick up future ones depending on the subject matter). I enjoy the title but this seems like a good jumping-off point.

And that's it!

I made a similar decision about Alter Ego, that I'll only but future issues if there's a particular article of interest in it. Issue 100 was my last by subscription, but I'm going to keep getting Back Issue regularly.
(My picture is actually in the Alter Ego Centennial book, on page 21, albeit with my name misspelled.)

Back Issue is a great magazine that I pick up from time to time. I like the Silver Age content on Alter Ego, but have to admit that the Golden Age stuff isn't as interesting. It's before my time.
