Speaking of ups and downs, let's see what you've been waiting over seven weeks to see on comic book shelves! Those long waits are a big downer, but you always feel a bit better when a comic you like finally shows up.
This week my cutoff is 8/22/07 and there were a couple of comics that just made this cut: Savage Tales #4 (Dynamite Entertainment) and Thunderbolts #117 (Marvel) (pictured) are finally coming out tomorrow after going 7 weeks between issues.
Loveless #20 (DC) is also coming out tomorrow. The prior issue of that came out back on August 15.
Glister was a really cute comic and we sold out of all of the first issue copies we received back on August 8. The second issue of Glister is finally coming out tomorrow - I do believe that this was scheduled to release about every other month or so, so it may not be late.
While I highly doubt many people were actually waiting for this, Marvel Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update #4 is coming out tomorrow, with the prior issue having arrived back on July 25th.
Magician's Apprentice #10 (Marvel) is another comic available tomorrow that had its previous issue make it's way to comic book shelves on July 25. I suppose this delay was due to the whole Dabble brothers mess. Hopefully Marvel can get this and the other "break-up" books back on schedule.
Top Cow (Image) gets the honors of having the longest gap between incoming comic issues this week for Witchblade Shades of Gray #3. The last issue of this to make it's way to comic book stores came out back on June 20.
There were a bunch of comics that just missed my cutoff this week - they must be watching!
