The Haul – March 16th, 2016

The Weekly Haul Header

Welcome back to this week’s books at The Weekly Haul!  A quick little comic shop story — when I usually go to pick up my books, I’m welcomed by an empty store, just me and the owner.  Granted, I tend to go late right before they close (thanks to my long commute), but it’s been a while since I’ve been at the shop with other customers.  Point being: I don’t know how to compare my amount of weekly comic purchases with other comic readers.  I’ve always thought that I spend too much on books, especially since I’m usually angry with around half of the comics I read.  This week, though, there was another guy in the shop.  His total: $150 worth of comics from this week’s new releases alone.

What are all of you spending weekly on average?   Let me know in the comments.

And one more thing — a big congratulations to Batman fan and supporter of the site, Matt, on his wedding!

Now here we go… To The Haul!

The Haul – November 4th, 2015

Welp, this is going to be a welcome back edition of The Haul!  It’s been a LONG time since the last post, but that’s all because of good things that have been keeping us busy, I suppose.  Remy and I have still be trudging through our weekly titles and having “serious discussions” about how we can get finished on the Top 162 X-Men Countdown (we’ll get back on that REAL soon), but here’s the fun stuff…

Hi. I want to be your doctor. And I want to also discuss how the X-Men are being pushed aside for the Inhumans in both the comics and the Marvel Cinematic Univ...hey, where are you going???

I started working at a new hospital this summer and, while the transition has been difficult at times (since I had been at the last place for all of my training over the past 7 years), it’s been a great change.  Still haven’t found the comic fans over here yet, but once I decorate the office walls with comic art, I’m sure they’ll come running in…or away…

The kids are doing good and Halloween was a blast — that’s The Boy as Stampy Cat (from Minecraft You Tube fame, who he is OBSESSED with) and The Bulldozer as Ariel.  But, that’s not all…

One more comic fan arrived!  That’s right, we’ve got #3 (and last) all swaddled and ready to learn the Word of X.

Meanwhile, Remy is busy hitting NYC’s comedy scene hard and trying to track down all of his heretofore unmentioned and possibly unknown children.

We’re hoping to get more active back on the site going forward, so stay tuned and thanks for sticking around!  Now…

To The Haul!
