Manifest Destiny, Wicked and Divine, the Devilers (maybe). I have a few I need to get that I missed from last week.

This is just a thread to show my elation about the events that transpired for me on Saturday. So, Invincible is my favorite series, easily. I have both compendiums, TPB 18, plus issues 100-onward. The one comic I've always wanted for my collection is an Invincible #1 but it is very difficult to find and it is usually at least $200, more like $300+ for a NM copy. I found one on eBay that I was trying to bid on, it was a CGC 9.8 for $330. I had some comics I wanted to sell (around 200 comics) to try and get the money but I knew I wouldn't be able to make enough for it. I went to a local LCS to sell them to add to my Invincible 1 fund and she asked me how much I wanted. I said I was trying to get an Invincible 1 and I was hoping for around $300... which I knew my comics weren't worth. She looked through them and said that there wasn't $300 in there but she looked at me and said, "did you say Invincible #1?" My eyes got huge as she walked behind the counter and pulled out an Invincible #1, signed by Robert Kirkman. It isn't CGC so the signature isn't certified but after checking ebay, it fits his other signatures that are certified. It's probably around a 9.0 in quality which is very good for a #1. After trading my comics, I only paid $25. I got a 9.0, signed copy of an Invincible #1 for $125!!!! (It is a true #1, not the stupid Larry's Limited crap, in case you were wondering). I had a stupid grin on my face all Saturday and I still can't believe I got it for that incredible price. I am going to get it graded as soon as I can but it is sitting right now so I can see it every time I go into my room.

He got raped. And when the savior is not safe no one is

You should point out that it was by a woman. He wasn't prison-raped, a woman overpowered and someone had normal sex with him against his will. It technically was rape but when you hear a guy was raped, you generally think of a prison-rape type deal. Just thought I'd clarify a little.

This is the best series there is. If I could only buy 1 series, this would be the one. It truly is the only superhero book you need. It is full of action, humor, violence, and drama. Plus, a great overall story. It is a 112 issue (thus far, I know 115 was solicited, but I'm only speaking of issues released) story arc. It has the same fantastic writer with the same universe, as was said, no crossovers, if they die, they're dead. A lot of trouble with Marvel and DC books is they get a writer for 20 issues and they switch so you get a totally different story and feel and it feels completely convoluted. Invincible has had the same writer (and it's his property, so it won't switch) the whole time, only 2 artists (both great) and Ryan Ottley is over 100 issues now. It is a fantastic book and you should drop all your Marvel and DC books (except Detective Comics, Buccelatto and Manapul are doing great there) and switch to Image. Invincible is the only superhero book you need.

I've always liked Declan's work and he does an awesome job on Moon Knight. A shame he's leaving.

Man, there are some mean comments. I am not a huge fan of Morrison but I don't know, Annihilator seems interesting. Plus, I wasn't really a fan of Irving's work on Uncanny X-Men but it fits this story (at least what they've shown) perfectly.

@g_man You said this was an advanced review, I thought it was going to be interactive or something. We'll see about the issue, though. I might pick it up. Maybe not. I'll wait for the preview.

Hamana hamana hamana BOI-OI-OI-OI-OING!

That's kind of creepy that you just admitted you're getting off to that statue. At least use porn with humans.

Even though I don't watch or read Adventure Time, that cover is awesome. I would also like the Walking Dead MiniMates.

I don't have a lot of TMNT stuff, I do really like the action figures. I don't have any of the originals (sadly I got rid of them all when I got older) but I did buy all the current ones and I have them all on my shelf. I also have the TMNT Lair LEGO, the Shellraiser LEGO, the Kraang Lab Escape LEGO, and Shredder's Dragon Bike LEGO. I have all the movies also. I have all the issues of the current IDW series (the first 13 are in graphic novels otherwise TMNT #1 would be on the top of my list). Probably the coolest TMNT thing I have is the Giant Leonardo PEZ dispenser. It stands approximately a foot tall and plays the theme song from the cartoon when you open his mouth. I don't have any candy for it sadly. It is probably the coolest thing I have because I don't know of anyone else who has one. I would love to get any of those Funko things to add to my collection... That Leonardo is especially awesome.

Okay, after listing all of that, I have a lot more TMNT stuff than I originally thought I did.

I love Vincent D'Onofrio. I Pretty much everything he did was awesome and he was probably my favorite overall character on all the Law and Order series. He is a very versatile actor and I think he'll do great.

Batman Beyond. I haven't seen much JL Unlimited but I love Batman Beyond so I'm going to have to stick with it.
