Welcome to the Comic Book Haul Post. Here’s a quick roundup of the comics I brought today. Also, as a quick note before we begin From now on, this post is going to be moved to Fridays rather than Wednesdays.
So, this is a pretty good day to be a comics fan, with several new titles hitting the shelves including Batman, and more – you can see my pick of 20 comics to look out for here. Now, due to budget and the fact that I was way behind all of them – I obviously couldn’t get all of them, and the ones that I ended up getting were: Age of Ultron #5, Batman #19, Batman and Red Robin #19, Uncanny Avengers #6 and Uncanny X-Men #4. No pic this week as the only one I managed to take was upside down on My Kindle Fire.
Age of Ultron #5

• The super hero survivors of the Ultron devastation follow a trail to the Savage Land in the hopes of finding a way to survive or turn the tide of the Ultron apocalypse. • But with half the Marvel heroes dead, what chance do any of the survivors have? • The choice that will forever change the course of Marvel history…!

How is Magik the only one of the Phoenix Five to come out of the experience unscathed? • And there is something strange going on with one of the other members of the UNCANNY X-MEN.
I was going to pick up Hawkeye #8, Wolverine #2 and Thor: God of Thunder #7 as well, but the Comic Book Store didn’t have them in stock so I ended up going with Age of Ultron #5 instead, giving this series one more chance to impress me. I reserved the following for next week, on the Friday: Hawkeye #8, Thor: God of Thunder #7, Justice League #19, Superior Spiderman #8 and Batwoman #19 for next week, on the Friday as I won’t be able to make it on the Wednesday.
So, that said – what comics did you get this week?
