Is DR DOOM MASTERS OF EVIL supposedly set in the normal Marvel Universe? I assumed that it was an out-of-continuity, Marvel Adventures-type title and didn't order it.

Also, the corrected version of X-Men: Manifest Destiny #5 didn't ship to my area this week. Did it ship at all? If not, then it should also be arriving on January 21st.

Apparently - and yes, this suprised me too - it IS meant to be MU, if not necessarily present day:

PT: Different toolbox. Guns here, but not there. Sexier in one than the other. Embracing continuity in one place, but tossing it around in the other. They both have their advantages, and I like to keep my hand in both.

DR DOOM MASTERS OF EVIL #1
GUARDIANS OF GALAXY #9

Dropping PUNISHER: FRANK CASTLE out of deference to Warren Ellis. (If I hear it continues to be great, I'll buy the trades.)

Ummm... replace "Warren Ellis" with "Garth Ennis". It was way too early when I wrote that. (And damn these Brits and their similar E-double-consonant-I-S last names.)

Even given that that makes more sense, I'm still not quite sure why it's in "deference to", unless Ennis posted to tell everyone to drop the book now he's gone.

Because the book's first story arc without him was a pale shadow of its former self.

i'm not trying to be weird/a jerk, but seriously, what's up with the list of what books are coming out? Fury, i know you're just doing us all a favor by posting these, but this week Squadron Supreme came out and Ender's Shadow didn't.

there must certainly be a way to know what to expect before i go into the shop every week. like i said, nothing against you, Fury, but i used to just come here every week to see what i was going to get, but lately it seems like i'm spending 15-20 minutes at the shop every week trying to figure out why the amount of books i'm buying is different than what i thought i was going to buy.

am i the only one this happens to? i'd feel better if i knew that some other people out there are like, "wtf? where's X, i heard it was supposed to come out this week." i've just never really seen anyone mention this. is it a regional thing? is it just my comic shop? is there no way of really knowing for sure what's going to be out each week?

oh my god. i feel better. i'd been meaning to say all that for a while.

Col_Fury posts lists that are released 6-7 days ahead of the weekly on-sale date. They're generally pretty on-target, but a lot of things can change in a week.

As the on-sale date gets closer and closer, more and more accurate lists show up on the web. If you want a 100% accurate list, you usually have to wait until the Monday afternoon before the on-sale date.

Fury's lists are great for what they are -- well-in-advance notice with a fuzzy accuracy rate. ;-)

By the way, since we're doing "things we'd been meaning to say for a while" -- what's with everyone's "oh hey here's the list of comics I'm going to buy this week" posts? Do any of you really think that the other board members are dying of curiosity about your purchase habits? I ask lightheartedly ... but seriously, what's with that?

-Jeph!

I dunno, why not? I like being able to see what other people are buying - if everyone else is reading something and I'm not, I wonder, am I missing something here? The lists often lead to recommendations and I've started buying a few books because of them.

And isn't your pull list sort of your "fingerprint" as a Marvel reader? I think it's neat to see what other people are into.

It's also a nice reference. Often I'll be in the comic shop and, being unable to remember what I'd planned to buy this week, I'll pull up my post on here on my phone as a reminder.

Exactly, it's fun. And I'd like to think I got Ross to start reading Spider-Man again because of these. :)

By the way, my shop didn't get the Captain America Masterworks, it looks like it didn't ship. :x

I've been falling a bit behind on when I usually post these, I may just end up posting them the week of release for a bit until I get caught up on some other things. When I get back on track, do you guys want me to go back to a week in advance?
