Consider Me Gone

Well, I've put in my DCBS order for this month's books. It was so much great stuff to order month this month that it will take me 2 posts to talk about it all! The next post will talk about the "mainstream" stuff I ordered and this post will talk about the books you might not have heard of but should consider preordering. After each title I'm going to put the Diamond order # and the original solicitation text of the Preview listing. Please consider ordering them if you find them interesting.


by Various. This is it! The mystery surrounding Fist of Justice is answered as the truth is revealed and our hero squares off against the only man that knows his secret. This changes everything! Also in this issue; S.A. Bennett's Edgar Advance makes his debut!


by M. Sean McManus & Chris Moreno. Battered, beaten, and hell-bent on revenge, Mark Grimm's obsession with his wife's death twists him into knots. The only path to finding her murderer lies in joining forces with the evil that grips the city. Grimm's alliance with darkness consumes what's left of his soul and reveals a much darker truth...


by Dwight L. MacPherson & Mathieu Benoit. Fearing an imminent breakdown, the Grim Reaper decides to take a Holiday. After an exhaustive search for a replacement, he finds only his cousin's nephew's son to collect the souls of those who are perishing. Enter the Jim Reaper! The only problem is that Jim is afraid of his own shadow, and his first week on the job may ultimately cause the destruction of his very own soul - or worse!


There are places in this world where the fabric of reality has worn thin, where strange and terrible creatures have crossed over to lurk in the shadows and the light. There is an organization dedicated to finding these creatures and sending them back from whence they came, sealing the rift behind them, and maintaining the integrity of those borders. The organization is called BEDLAM. Its agents are . . . The Perhapanauts! • Now, for the first time ever, collected especially for you in this widely popular trade paperback format, the critically acclaimed, highly sought after four-issue miniseries that started it all--The PERHAPANAUTS!


written by Jeff Amano art by Craig Rousseau, Wayne Faucher & Giulia Brusco cover by JEFF Amano • 128 pg • FC • $14.99 Grieving over the death of his only son, Gepetto mixes the new science of DNA with the age-old magic of the golem to resurrect his son. But in truth, he was never very close to Victor. And the anger that burns within the heart of the monster he birthed and created, destroys everything and everyone around him. Now, Gepetto must hunt his own son. The story of a man and a monster who through unspeakable horror find their way to becoming father and son for the very first time.

SIDEKICK #2 [MAY061741]

written by PAUL JENKINS art & cover by CHRIS MORENO • 32 pg • FC • $3.50 In this issue, Eddie, in an effort to make more money and make ends meet, tries life as a sidekick to four different and distinct heroes, each one crazier than the other! We meet the downtrodden Hobo for the first time, we marvel at the ingenuity of an automated 'Escape Bear,' Eddie gets lucky in an elevator, and our hero learns just how hard it is to cover up an eye injury. Confused? You will be.

Last post's title was a song title from:
Abbey Road by The Beatles

This was the final album recorded by the Fab Four. Yes, I know that Let It Be was released after this one. But, you see, it was recorded before Abbey Road and, due to problems with the post production (mostly Phil Spector's doing), it's release was pushed back to after Abbey Road had hit the record shops.
