Each and every week “The King of Trades” Henchman21 and “The King of Smarks” MK2Fac3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of October 26, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
This is The GoD List and it’s a place for you to show up and check out what it is that we (The HenchFac3 of Doom!) are most excited for this week in comics! That’s right, each and every Wednesday you can come to this website and see what we want to read. We’re taking bets now for next week, so if you want to leave a comment below on what you think we’ll be reading, you just might not win a very special prize! If you did want to bet, however, the safest thing you can do is look and see what Batman and X-Men books are coming out. Shot! Anyway, this week Hunter gets diverse, while Chris writes a love letter to Jason Aaron! Will they both survive!? Probably not! But the only way to find out is to keep your eyes scrolling down this page.

Brian Azzarello. Eduardo Risso. These are two comic creators whose names create instant excitement when attached to a new project, especially when they are on the same book, as they are with their new series from DC/Vertigo, which launches this week with Spaceman #1. Azzarello and Risso are the team that brought us a landmark run with their series 100 Bullets. They were also the team for possibly the best thing to come out of DC’s Flashpoint event, with their Batman: Knight of Vengeance mini-series. So, when they start a new project, it’s easy to get me and many other comics fans excited. It’s a good thing then that Spaceman is very good, because you do not want to see a bunch of fanboys get pissed off when things don’t live up to their expectations.
Fans of the Vertigo series 100 Bullets will be pleased to learn that the creative team behind that book, Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso are teaming up again for a new series coming from Vertigo comics this year. The series will be titled Spaceman, and that’s about all we know at this point.
If you go to DC’s blog The Source, you can see a conversation between Azzarello and Editor Will Dennis about the series, as well as some preview art.
