2 less comics this month and again Marvel dominates the month holding number 1 spot. As you can tell I mostly "Make Mine Marvel" always have probably always will. I haven't bought anything from Image in a while but with Todd McFarlane back involved with Spawn I thought I'd check it out for a while.

Breakdown as of August 2008:
Marvel Comics - 244
DC Comics - 222
Dark Horse - 6
Abstract Studio - 5
Ape Entertainment - 4
Archaia Studios Press - 3
Boom! Studios - 1
Evil Twin Comics - 1
Image - 1
Super Real Graphics - 1

Marvel Comics now leads with 50% of the comics ordered from DCBS and DC Comics drops to 45.5% all other indie's move up to 4.5%. I really want to see how far ahead Marvel gets over time. I enjoy all brands of comics but Marvel is where my heart is I guess. Someday I'm going to get a complete list of all of my comics and really get an accurate count.

Your pull list reads pretty similiar to mine. Marvel, as always, dominates my monthly list. For me it's more like 90% Marvel, 10% the rest of the guys. I'm also picking up Spawn now that TM is involved.

Thanks for the comment Gary yeah Marvel is most of my collection I don't think its 90% but there have been times when all I got was Marvel.

I hope Spawn is good with Todd McFarlane back on it. I liked it a few years ago but it was always months and months late so I dropped it but hopefully its on a regular schedule these days.

PS how did you find this blog? Was it random or through a search?

Hey dude,

There's a new comic shop in Hammond near SLU. It's called Lionheart Comics. I don't know when it's open, and I haven't been there, but I though you'd like to know and perhaps spread the word.

I'm going to have to see if I can find out anything about the new shop
