If you aren't getting Wicked and Divine then you are missing out!

This. I wasn't sure at first but grabbed the first 2 issues to read on my SDCC flights. I instantly added it to my pull list.

I was enjoying the DC Bombshells variants because (1.)  They were cool and (2.) Stores seemed to be not jacking up the prices, but they only did 16 or 17 of them.   

The one time DC doesn't do 52 of something.  :P

I just got them for the covers.  I will read them at some point, but have no expectations of them.  :)

As a long time comic book fan, I find that pretty funny. 

Maybe I should give image a try again.  Any recommendations?

Seems totally backwards from the 90's, doesn't it?   :)

I read a ton from Image right now. All of which I like. These are my faves:

East of West
Deadly Class
Black Science
Southern Bastards
Pretty Deadly
Lazarus
Shutter

Outcast and Low are good as well. They are also both recently new.

I also read the following trades:
Sex Criminals
Saga
The Walking Dead

... East of West and Deadly Class are easily my favorite reads out of all my pulls. Saga is really popular and won a number of awards this year.

My list changes alot too.  I consider myself a DC guy but am reading next to none of it after the new 52.  I am reading more marvel these days too.

Put your requests in with your LCS. Just saw on FaceBook,  DC will be offering Monster Covers  for October.
