What comic books (non-DC / non-Marvel) from American publishers have you been buying?

Post by MajorHoy on Fri Jun 15, 2018 1:22 am

I was thinking about also ruling out comics from Image, but since they don't have a separate section here, I decided against it.

--------------------------------------------  

Anyway, these days I've got the following on my pull-list:
(1.) from Dark Horse,

(Sir Edward Grey,) Witchfinder: Gates of Heaven (five issue series)

(2.) from Dynamite,

Green Hornet (Vol. 2), but I may drop that soon

and I will be getting/trying

Project Superpowers (starts in July 2018)

There are other titles I also get, but they don't always get published on a regular basis (and I don't think any new volumes have been solicited recently).

If we're only talking American publishers, currently Red Sonja, Barbarella and Dejah Thoris, but there have been a number of other titles recently concluded (like Captain Kronos, Vampire Hunter) and Titan's Doctor Who line are currently on hiatus until the new TV series starts.

Well, since this is the "American Comics" section, . . .
And aside from Titan, I'm not sure how many other publishers have a decent general presence here in the states. The Titan material I've seen appears to be specifically printed for here in the states since the covers typically have U.S. pricing ($'s) printed on them (but not any British / European prices).



I'm sure there are comic books from other British publishers available at some stores here in the U.S., but I don't know how wide-spread the distribution may be (unless some readers special orders them in advance).

No British publisher that sells to the US market, as far as I know, has bothered with dual pricing since the demise of distribution of imports to the high street newsagents. I can see that it would be fairly pointless, given that their stuff is racked in the comic shops alongside the US imports anyway. Titan do produce a Doctor Who title for the British high street market, Tales from the TARDIS, but it simply reprints three issues of the direct market editions in each issue. Obviously, 2000 AD and other titles which are still distributed to high street stores over here carry only British cover prices.

By the way, I just ordered a copy of

Hellboy Vol. 8: Darkness Calls from Barnes & Noble.
The tpb collection was first published back in 2008,
and it collects a six-issue series from 2007.

Needed to get more sunflower seed for the birds & other critters, so I also stopped at the comic book shop. Not counting the two DC comics I picked up, I bought:
Dynamite:

Green Hornet Vol. 2 #4

and the rest were from Dark Horse:


B.P.R.D. The Devil You Know #6 & #7
(decided to jump in and give this a try)



(Sir Edward Grey,) Witchfinder: Gates of Heaven #2 (of 5)

an older tpb collection:

B.P.R.D. King of Fear (B.P.R.D. Vol. 14 / © 2010)

and some back issues from the $1.00 bin:



* B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth #108, #110-111 (from 2013)

I think it may be the writing . . . I've been tempted to drop this title. The idea of former-Kato Mulan taking over as Green Hornet while Britt was missing had potential, but hasn't really been handled right from my viewpoint.

Not really a "garden", but we do have lawn and other stuff growing in the yard around the house. (My Mom did the gardening, but she's not really up to that any longer.)
So we have a pole with a couple of bird feeders off of it out front, plus I put seed on the ground beneath the feeders (squirrels, chipmunks, and some of the birds eat on the ground, plus the occasional turkey wanders by). And the fox sometimes stops by in hopes of catching a squirrel. There's also the deer that sometimes pass through.

In the backyard, I put seed on/under a large bush and the birds and other critters like that, plus we have the hummingbird feeder in the backyard.

We have two hanging baskets with geraniums in. My mum gave them to us. And when we move back to Shotley Gate we won't need a garden because we'll be living in the country.

Non-DC comics I bought this past weekend:
Dynamite:

Green Hornet Vol. 2 #5 (looks like it was the last issue?)

Dark Horse:

B.P.R.D. The Devil You Know #8


(Sir Edward Grey,) Witchfinder: Gates of Heaven #3 (of 5)

NOTE: I was suppose to also get Project Superpower #0 (Dynamite), but I was told the system had a different code for the cheaper #0 issue than there is for the regular issues (#1 is due out next week I believe), so they've ordered a copy of issue #0 for me and it should be there in a couple of weeks?

I believe issue #0 was suppose to have a (U.S.) cover price of 10¢. Whether stores were charging for it may have been optional.
I had requested the series for my pull list, but as I was told, there was a different code in the system for issue #0, so they didn't have one for me when I finally made it to the store. (Don't even know if/how many copies of it the store may have bothered to order in the first place.)

Over here, that would be about 0.06 so I guess it wasn't worth charging for.

Yes Tony, it seems that when inferior to $ 1.00 the lesser US comics price is, the higher the difference seems to be with Uk prices, when ordering it in advance from Previews catalog  Crying or Very sad. For esample, this month all Marvel True Believers What If themed one-shot reprints which have cover prices of $ 1.00 have a Diamond Uk list price of £ 0.80. I perfectly understand that these and cheapers ones are promotional items that the comic book shop can choose to give away to local faithful nerdsss too Very Happy

The last non Marvel or DC book I bought was The Vigilant one shot from Rebellion, but I can't work out how to post an image of the cover right now. It's the first of what will hopefully be a new line of books from the 2000 AD publisher featuring the heroes of the classic British comics originay published from the sixties to the nineties by IPC. and I loved it, though I think Lucy found it impenetrable.

It is indeed! It features updated versions of several classic characters from my youth, including the Steel Commando (a robot soldier who obeyed only a lazy private named Ernie Baines), Thunderbolt the Avenger (a police officer who was secretly a super powered crimebuster), Blake Edmonds (a former racing driver who became a troubleshooter with a death wish after his face was horrifically burned) and the Leopard from Lime Street (a schoolboy who became a somewhat feral crimefighter after being scratched by a radioactive leopard).

I don't to buy the more expensive stuff, but a $3.99 comic is around £3.25, a $2.99 one around £2.45, minus a 10% discount for having a regular order.
