This week we are reading: 100 Bullets #72 (Vertigo) by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso, chosen by Kirbys corpse
Next week we are reading: Secret Six #1 (DC) by Gail Simone, Brad Walker & Jimmy Palmiotti chosen by J. R. Scherer
For the week of books release on May 30, 2006, the reveiw book will be:
My Inner Bimbo #1 (Oni Press) by Sam Kieth chosen by dEnny!.
Those interested in reveiwing this title will have an extra week to obtain a copy, under the rules set down by Lord Thudpucker.
Nevermind about My Inner Bimbo being taken of the list, and dEnny! picking Secret Six. All of that has been reversed yet again. And I have no idea why this thread still has "STICKY".

Sorry, never seen one that goes out that far. 10 days ahead is as far as I've seen.Originally Posted by J. R. Scherer
great issue this 100 Bullets #72 is.
glad i'm reading the series every issue now, and wishing i had been around since the beginning.
the way all it all comes together ... the final cliff hanger ... just a good book
Here are the orignal soliciations for May:Originally Posted by J. R. Scherer
Figure out what hasn't come out yet, that should provide some sort of starting point. In a few days, you'll have a semi-positive list to go by.
There's always 52 as a last resort.
I just started reading 100 Bullets this past week. I finished the first collection and enjoyed it a lot. I'm not sure I want to read this issue though, from what I read in the previews, it seems that some backstory works itself out.
Would I ruin past story arcs if I read this issue?
I am made out of water. You wouldn't know it, because I have it bound in. My friends are made out of water, too. All of them. The problem for us is that not only do we have to walk around without being absorbed by the ground but we also have to earn our livings.
