This week: Hank Pym, "Phonogram" and...wait, what? That can't be right. Seriously? Brother Power The Geek was good enough to buy? Check that again. Really? Wow. Well, okay, there's that, and, uh...some other stuff too.

Thu, November 12th, 2009
The devil's in the details this week, with good dialogue making an appearance in even less-than-clearly-plotted comics, as both William Gravel and T'Challa make it work alongside a mouthy merc and all your favorite stories.  

Thu, November 5th, 2009
Another winning week has come and... well, it's still here. The Red Invasion's too good to resist, even stories have spies, Deadshot intimidates, Parker Robbins inspires and only Kal-El and Steve Rogers screw up at all.

Thu, October 29th, 2009
All the titles that didn't make it home were essentially cancelled out as Noh Varr, Astra Furst, Amadeus Cho, Jack Frost and Richard Ryder showed up in full force to get the job done for the week.  

Thu, October 22nd, 2009
It's quite a week for characterization with Norman Osborn, an FDA agent, Bruce Banner, toys and Luke Cage, even while the Kryptonians take a break, Hank Pym's more important than need be and Osborn's got a secret.

Thu, October 15th, 2009
You won't need a dose of venom to enjoy this week's wonderfully winning batch of comics, with a flying monkey coming into his own, a combat magician pulling the trigger and much more, moving past extradimensional sidekicks.

Thu, October 8th, 2009
Jericho Drumm reps his city! Parker Robbins makes big moves! Wade Wilson makes pancakes! Could that be ... no, it's not a unicorn or a cheerleader who can cook, it's an issue of "Planetary" joining a winner week.

Thu, October 1st, 2009
The world's greatest detective is a mystery herself, Jack of Fables gets a snack, and a super-powered college grad has a blast. Meanwhile, things go better than expected with a good number of comics and some good times.

Thu, September 24th, 2009
Five comics participate in a meritocracy to make it home with Jessica Drew's soul searching, John Raymond broadcasting, Richard Ryder taking control, Amadeus Cho figuring it out and best of all ... Dog Brother Number One!

Thu, September 17th, 2009

Zack Overkill brings home the best performance of the bunch, but the week itself is a wash despite Tony Stark's email, barbarian bloodshed, wanderings from Wade Wilson and a little thing called "international heartbreak."

Thu, August 27th, 2009
Four fascinating men -- Edward Nygma, Daken, Wade Wilson and Amadeus Cho -- show up in a major way while Green Lanterns look confused, Scott Summers revisits some old favorites and indy favorite "Rex Mundi" calls it quits.

Thu, August 20th, 2009

Thu, August 13th, 2009

Thu, August 6th, 2009
Winning by algebra as Larry Trainor, Scandal Savage, Princess Shuri, Royal Williams and three guys named Tony have a good week, featuring four jumps and even an interesting turn from Tyrese Gibson.

Thu, July 30th, 2009
That can be called a win, one limping in rather than striding proudly, as wonder takes residence along side horror and sadism, spies can be everywhere at once, the Ultimate Universe resembles a Laker game and more.

Thu, July 23rd, 2009
The week's a close call, but it squeaks by as a good thing, featuring the overwhelming glory of Fat Cobra, an Encyclopedia Mythologica and a star turn from Peter Parker, even during the time of the Blackest Night.

Thu, July 16th, 2009
You'll look as perturbed as Mister Terrific here when you deal with this week's comics despite three jumps, the best comic on the stands coming out and an Alanis Morrisette reference that's worth its weight in gold.

Thu, July 9th, 2009
Even if almost nobody shows up, you can win if you're among the last ones standing. This week "predigested Forrest Gump" and Vril Dox are smart enough to make their way home as "Wednesday Comics" befuddles, "War of Kings" rages on and more.

Thu, July 2nd, 2009
Ambition leads the day as people try some new things, from "Sex and the Marvel U" down to "Greek Street," with uncivil wars, spoiled romance, quests for revenge and plenty more in a winning week. This is The Buy Pile.

Thu, June 25th, 2009

Thu, June 18th, 2009
Good times at the comic shop this week with the genius of Gillen and McKelvie, Jonathan Hickman's late pass, Static meeting Black Lightning, Pym vs. Richards, the final vendetta of Chuckles and much more in this week's reviews.

Thu, June 11th, 2009
Things go well this week, with tons of guns and wonderful cleverness, from a dystopian Manhattan to an alternate earth, from the inside of a mad mind to the outer limits of storytelling and back to dusty Nevada.

Thu, June 4th, 2009
Love and punching is the theme for today, as the opposing types of connections between people help titles like "War of Kings," "Astro City The Dark Age," "New Avengers: The Reunion" and "Secret Six" make this week great.

Sun, May 31st, 2009

Why so serious, Catman? Things went well with Jack of Fables back on the farm, William Gravel catching a shower and Mark Sable doing the unthinkable, plus "Dark Reign," Lantern action and more.

Thu, May 7th, 2009
Norman Osborn's back in fine form this week, Tony Stark borrows a page from the Bruce Wayne playbook, Astro City is back, Deadpool's amok and more with "New Mutants," "Irredeemable," "Flash: Rebirth," and more.

Thu, April 30th, 2009
You've gotta love it when everybody's looking at Karla Sofen's ... er, talents, while the records spin in a new "Phonogram" issue, Norman Osborn keeps having fun, in spite of long-awaited failures and what not.

Thu, April 23rd, 2009
Good things happen when bar fights break out in space, when Warren Ellis goes too far, when Thor talks to himself, when Jack of Fables does what he does and when the JLA talks it out. Plus "Buck Rogers," "Supergirl" and more.

Thu, April 16th, 2009
Megatron leads of a solid set of singles with Frank Castle doing some damage, Doctor Sauniere hulking out, Chuckles going deep, Zack Overkill doing the same and more in a winning week of new comics.

Thu, April 9th, 2009
Just barely winning with a double date that only has one guy and Matt Murdock doing the impossible in the prohibition era, a mountain of "meh" and a debilitating cold can't stop this week's reviews from coming in.

Thu, April 2nd, 2009
Here's a good week of comics led by Jazz' inspirational speeches, Destro's business ethics, Norman Osborn's machinations and Deadpool's romantic stylings even while Black Adam and Barry Allen disappoint and Seaguy befuddles.

Thu, March 26th, 2009
After a week away, how do the comics look? Bad. All bad. Megatron's MIA, legends fall flat, Elektra's got the ninja whamma jamma, Majestic rules patiently, the FF is stupid and too much more.

Thu, March 12th, 2009
Before taking a week off, the comics did their thing with great showings from Sunstreaker, Little Badger, Tony Stark, Kyle Baker, Irma Geddon, J.M. DeMatteis, while three DC books stink up the joint.

Thu, March 5th, 2009
If you don't so much lose, that's like winning, right?  We believe so with "Secret Six," "Deadpool," "Black Lightning," "Agents of Atlas" and more ... as the Buy Pile celebrates six years of service. We're just as surprised as you are.

Thu, February 26th, 2009
Put this one in the "lose" column as the Justice Society jams in dumb elements, the Thor Clone's back (is "Clor" better than "Ragnarok?") and Mon-El's in reruns, plus, sadly, much more.

Thu, February 19th, 2009
Winning big with five jumps, including a return to form for "X-Factor," making Milestones with "Justice League of America," whimsical good times with Norman Osborn and so much more.

Thu, February 12th, 2009
Just barely winning even with six jumps because there were big, big problems from Patsy Walker, "Trinity," "Avengers/Invaders" and Blade's hairdo, plus "Whatver Happened to The Caped Crusader" and more.
