Four jumps? When's the last time there were four jumps? When you look at the fact that there were no planned purchases today, it's like a freakin' winter miracle! A great day on the Buy Pile!

The Buy Pile - 11/4/2010

Brace yourselves: nothing was really bad this week! It's rare, but true in a week where Catman, Bane and Deadshot slice through Skartaris, Bruce Wayne goes sane and Reptil steps up, THE BUY PILE is pleased.

The Buy Pile - 10/28/2010

The Buy Pile - 10/14/2010

Two names held sway over this week's comics - "Matt" and "Fraction" - as new ideas from Top Cow shine, Bruce Wayne's pop quizzes fizzle and there's green in between, all in a winning week of pop periodicals.

The Buy Pile - 10/7/2010

The Buy Pile - 10/7/2010

THE BUY PILE was treated to smart goings on with bad people being manipulated, Avengers race relations, teleporting terrorists and a PR crisis for Oa. Sure, Hercules is back, but did he make it home? Find out inside.

The Buy Pile - 9/30/2010

The Buy Pile - 9/30/2010

Fraction, Bá and Moon's "Casanova" remixed and a prose story about a member of G.I. Joe weigh things nicely in the positive side of the scale this week, leaving Hannibal and THE BUY PILE in a winning mood and mode.

The Buy Pile - 9/23/2010

The Buy Pile - 9/23/2010

There's no room for Hannibal to complain in a week which sees Asgardian mythology meet science, the law getting laid down on the Farm and Mark Millar making a big splash with a bloody good time.

The Buy Pile - 9/16/2010

The Buy Pile - 9/16/2010

The Buy Pile - 8/26/2010

Things go all right this week, despite a truck full of comics disappearing somewhere along the side of a dusty road, with Aaron Stack making a return that's less "triumphant" and more "acceptable."

The Buy Pile - 8/19/2010

The Buy Pile - 8/19/2010

You could say, "that ain't bad," as an Eisner winner makes the Buy Pile jump and Rose Red shows up for the job, even while aliens don't sing "Smack That" and Deadpool phones it in resulting in a thin margin win.

The Buy Pile - 8/12/2010

The Buy Pile - 8/12/2010

The results aren't bad for a light week, making it a winning one with a soldier turned spy, sci-fi from BOOM! Studios and Tony Stark throwing a party, plus a great Frank Miller reprint for just a buck. Can't beat that!

The Buy Pile - 8/5/2010

The Buy Pile - 8/5/2010

Writer Jonathan Maberry does the unthinkable without Alicia Keys or BOOM! Studios in sight in a week that wins - barely - with gunfights and arguments, depravity and detail, even while event comics languish.

The Buy Pile - 7/29/2010

The Buy Pile - 7/29/2010

Missing a week to the Comic-Con madness somehow meant missing a step as this week's comics were just not that good, even with a few revealing personality pieces and the humor of Ultimate Captain Marvel.  Seriously.

The Buy Pile - 7/15/2010

The Buy Pile - 7/15/2010

A look at the Silver Agent, some time spent with Tony Stark and a sophomore turn with "Avengers Academy" all make the trek home this week, with the Man of Steel's detour though South Philadelphia just missing the cut.

The Buy Pile - 7/1/2010

The Buy Pile - 7/1/2010

Horrors and glories of warfare, from mythical enmities to corporate spycraft to the blood-soaked sands of the Sudan, are on display in a week that mostly makes Marvels while shuddering at the horror of...The Pantsening!

The Buy Pile - 6/24/2010

The Buy Pile - 6/24/2010

Things go badly as the Buy Pile records something all new - a week where no new comics were worth buying. Oh, there's a good reprint, sure, but things kind of stank overall with rough going all around.

The Buy Pile - 6/17/2010

The Buy Pile - 6/17/2010

It's another great week to profess your love for comics as mercenaries, magical princesses and pangalactic potentates join forces with vengeful cowboys, Destro and lethal ladies to make this batch of comics a winner.

The Buy Pile - 6/10/2010

The Buy Pile - 6/10/2010

A very small dose of problematic publications gives cause for celebration in a winning week that has a powerful Amadeus Cho, Catman gone wild, combat magicians, the JLI and Pepper Potts getting feisty. Let's go!

The Buy Pile - 6/7/2010

The Buy Pile - 6/7/2010

Tomorrow will bring a better you and a better Legion, apparently, while time-torn lovers find complicated love, super robots come from a different place in Asia while event comics fizzled or failed. This is THE BUY PILE.

The Buy Pile - 5/27/2010

The Buy Pile - 5/27/2010

Through fever, through headache, through fainting spell, THE BUY PILE's Hannibal Tabu delivers with a week that wins (barely) over terrible times with Thanos, a truly baffling Batman, impotence and futility.

The Buy Pile - 5/20/2010

The Buy Pile - 5/20/2010

Things aren't looking up this week as a black scientist becomes a gangster and "Brightest Day" fails to illuminate. Thankfully, there's heavy metal and Paul Levitz coming back to the future. He knows what he's doing!

The Buy Pile - 5/13/2010

The Buy Pile - 5/13/2010

This week, Amadeus Cho leads a new generation of heroes into a future that's bright and filled with "bwa-ha-ha," there's sibling rivalry and anticlimaxes and Batman with no shirt on and...oh, just click already...

The Buy Pile - 5/6/2010

The Buy Pile - 5/6/2010

Hannibal Tabu left the comic shop with a happy look on his face this week and the latest issues of "Secret Six," "Astro City," "The Great Ten" and "OIOTMU: The Avengers" all joining him and THE BUY PILE for the ride home.

The Buy Pile - 4/29/2010

The Buy Pile - 4/29/2010

CBR's Hannibal Tabu returns with another week's worth of heavy praise and harsh criticism of new comics including the latest "Invincible Iron Man," "Deadpool," "Incorruptible" and more. Enter at your own risk.

The Buy Pile - 4/22/2010

The Buy Pile - 4/22/2010

Things go well for THE BUY PILE this time around with the King of Magic, an armor-clad futurist and the Lord of Latveria leading off a week that even managed to beat back the horrible, tragic tales of...Forbush Man!

The Buy Pile - 4/15/2010

The Buy Pile - 4/15/2010

Good times this week, as Loki does what he does best, Rose Red stays in bed and a group of young people strike a blow for freedom millions of miles away. The event comics may droop, but they can't bring the week down.

The Buy Pile - 4/8/2010

The Buy Pile - 4/8/2010

Despite an atrocity in ancient Rome, things actually go fairly well with a week that both the Wu-Tang and Bill Willingham could be proud about, even while Hulks war ineffectively and Vader takes his eye off the ball.

The Buy Pile - 4/1/2010

The Buy Pile - 4/1/2010

The worst week of comic books of 2010, so far anyway, heralded by a "dark" light and attempts at humor that just don't work.  April Fool's?  Not so fast -- there's nothing funny about things going this badly.

The Buy Pile - 3/25/2010

The Buy Pile - 3/25/2010

There are weeks when you love comics...and weeks you just kind of slough through it. Unfortunately, this week is the latter. Event comics may make legends in their own mind, but in the trenches it's just the facts.

The Buy Pile - 3/18/2010

The Buy Pile - 3/18/2010

Tales of war and justice lead off this Week of Winning, even while most gamma irradiated, green-themed comics stunk and former teen heroes whine far more than they punch and Iris would be good...on TV, if not in comics.

The Buy Pile - 3/11/2010

The Buy Pile - 3/11/2010

Nothing went wrong, but it's not all right as talented newcomers work with Wade Wilson, Abigail Brand and Thomas Blake to bring whimsy, confidence and hard decisions into a week that celebrates our 7th anniversary.

The Buy Pile - 3/4/2010

The Buy Pile - 3/4/2010

Brace yourself: there was absolutely nothing awful about this week's new comic releases! That shocker aside, there's genuinely great stuff in a largely DC-dominated week full of characters that predominantly live in gray areas.

The Buy Pile - 2/25/2010

The Buy Pile - 2/25/2010

Heroic efforts by William Gravel, Deadpool, Layla Miller, two old lovers and a mountain of comic book facts simply aren't enough to save this week from Thundercracker and Sinestro, the harbingers of The Great Sadness.
