Marvel's September Solicits

Remember when I mentioned Garth Ennis' run on Punisher being put out in a new hardcover? F*%& that. F*%& that hardcore. In September, Marvel releases this bad-@$$ sh*t:
PUNISHER BY GARTH ENNIS OMNIBUS HC
Written by GARTH ENNIS
Penciled by STEVE DILLON, DARICK ROBERTSON, TOM MANDRAKE, CAM KENNEDY, JOHN MCCREA, DOUG BRAITHWAITE & JOE QUESADA
Cover by TIM BRADSTREET
The bodies of drug dealers, murderers and the scum of the Earth litter the streets...the Punisher is back — courtesy of writer Garth Ennis! The critically acclaimed creator that brought you Preacher restores one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Universe to his former glory and ultra-violent roots. Stripped of sidekicks, spiritual directives and other excess baggage, the vengeance-crazed vigilante hits the mean streets of New York City with a renewed sense of purpose! Lawbreakers beware: Frank Castle is locked, loaded and waiting for you to slip up! Collecting PUNISHER (2000) #1-12, PUNISHER KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE, MARVEL KNIGHTS DOUBLE SHOT #1, and PUNISHER (2001) #1-7 and #13-37.

Holy f*%&. That's 1192 pages of Ennis-style Punisher. Wow. I'm not buying anything else that month other than Final Crisis 4 and this.

Also, I hate Marvel:
MARVEL BOY PREMIERE HC
Written by GRANT MORRISON
Penciled by J.G. JONES
Cover by J.G. JONES
FIRST TIME IN HARDCOVER! Meet Marvel Boy — a.k.a Noh-Varr of the Kree Empire, last survivor of a doomed starship. He’s seen good friends killed by sheer ignorance and hate, and his welcome to Earth consisted of imprisonment and torture. Now he’s angry — and if necessary, he’ll take on our entire planet in the name of love, justice and the freedom to ride in his spaceship.
Collecting MARVEL BOY #1-6.
160 PGS./Rated T+ ...$24.99
ISBN: 978-0-7851-3440-4
Trim size: standard

Why? Why after I just spent money buying the individual issues? I hate you, Marvel but at the same time, I love you for Ennis.
