Hawkman #1 - I read an interview with the writer and it sounded interesting. It's an good take on a character who has suffered a lot in the last 20 years.  Bryan Hitch's art doesn't hurt the eyes either.

DC:
Mister Miracle #9 (Of 12) - A look at the machinations of war, as a familiar plot provides an unexpected twist ending.

Marvel:
Marvel Two-In-One Annual #1 - A neat look at Victor Von Doom and what drives him to be who he is.

Dark Horse:
B.P.R.D. The Devil You Know #7 - The end can't be far away now...
Doctor Star And The Kingdom Of Lost Tomorrows #4 (Of 4) - Though the outcome was inevitable, the execution lifted this story. I like the way Lemire has "Marvelised" these DC analogs, as it's the flaws in these characters that makes them shine.
Neil Gaiman's American Gods My Ainsel #4 - The halfway point of the series. Things are starting to push forward now.
Resident Alien An Alien In New York #3 (Of 4) - I love the way this series unfolds in such a subtle, understated way.

Image:
Mage The Hero Denied #9 - NIce to see a familiar face step forward this issue.

Oni Press:
Damned #10 - Backroom deals with longterm repercussions...

DC:

Mister Miracle #9 (Along with Batman: White Knight, the best thing DC is putting out in my opinion.)
Wildstorm: Michael Cray #8 (the art is not great on this book but I have to say that I've enjoyed this book quite a bit, more so than the Wildstorm book itself.. the bizarre versions of the DC characters have been interesting so far)

Image:

Kick-Ass #5
The Magic Order #1
VS #3 and #4 (I finally a copy of #1 and #2 that I mail ordered 2 months ago, so I picked these up as they were the only issues my LCS had, I believe issue 4 came out a couple of weeks ago, not this week)

Marvel:

Marvel 2-in-1 Annual #1
Marvel 2-in-1 #1-6

I haven't bought any Marvel comics in a bit, but I watched a Youtube video review of issue 6 of this title and it really grabbed my interest. That combined with the positive word of mouth stuff I've been hearing about the book and the fact Jim Cheung drew a lot of it was enough for me to take the plunge and pick up all six previous issues and the annual that came out today. 

United Plankton Pictures:

Spongebob Comics #81 - This one I bought for my son. He has gotten quite a few issues of Spongebob, TMNT/Batman, Scooby Doo Team Up, Sonic, and a few Marvel books here and there, mostly Spider-Man comics as Spider-Man is his favorite superhero. He goes with me to the comic shop every Wednesday and gets to pick out a toy and comic.

I suppose I'd be reading MISTER MIRACLE but Tom King's BATMAN is so unreadable that I just...I can't. 

How was PLASTIC MAN #1?

My LCS was sold out of Plastic Man. A couple of the people who work their liked it. They're ordering more copies so I'll check it out. I dropped Immortal Men, I didn't make it all the way through the issue.

I have surprisingly been enjoying Man Of Steel, I haven't read a New 52 Superman title or the newer stuff(except for Action #1000).

Adam, Plastic Man #1 was quite good IMHO.
I'm not familiar with the character, but this comic was a nice mixture of film noir and funny comedy, with quite decent art.

Sergio -- it's not another version of his origin story, is it? I hope not.

I don't know about the "original origin" of this character, but in this comic an origin is briefly glanced at in a flashback, as something recent.
