President Thor is my favorite President.
Raven you'll have to give me a complete run down of Robin. I've been looking forward to that book for awhile but will probably have to wait another week to pick it up.
And Batman #651 Detective Comics 817 was interesting and I'm looking forward to the next Batman issue.
Just got "Infinite Crisis Secret Files", Superman 650 (just for you, Raven- it better be good ), and Teen Titans 'One Year Later' on a whim since for some odd reason Green Arrow 60, the one I really want, keeps disappearing whenever I go in to buy it... damn comic shop...
Sorry for double post, couldn't edit my old one... but woah, Supes 650- [hl=black]When exactly did Clark lose his powers? Thats kinda crazy... part of the whole Crisis I suppose, but its kinda scary now that he can't really protect the world... Man, I finally get into DC and the whole world goes to hell...[/hl]
Read 52 OR final issue of IC (probably that one)
The only comic I picked up today was Amazing Spider-Man #530. I do plan to catch up on a few other books and pick up a trade or two during the weekend.
I managed to make it down to the comic store but snow delays meant no new comics.
I got a nice haul this week:
Ultimate Fantastic Four #28
Squadren Supreme #1
and I finally found a copy of New X-Men #23!
[hl=black]Catwomen. The babies name is Helena and Batman comes baring gifts? And still no direct confermation of parenthood? DAMN YOU DC[/hl]
On an unrelated topic I hope they release Birds of Prey on DVD someday
thats just weird - I picked up Birds of Prey GN 2,3 and 4 yesturday...
Yeah. That annoyed me too.
I can't see [hl=black]the father[/hl] being someone random or new, which pretty much narrows it down to [hl=black]Bruce or Slam.[/hl]
Anyhow, Catwoman is tied for second on the One Year Later awesomeness chart.
Up, up and Away! is the best so far, with Catwoman and Face the Face being tied for #2. Robin is #3 (or would it be #4 if there are two at #2?).
Robin #2 or #4?
I liked that [hl=black]They had both Slam and Bruce in the issue to stir up things.[/hl]
And on Batman
[hl=black]So with the villian count going down could Harvey be clearing out competion? Or is it that his obsession with duality has shifted tp cleaning up the city, after he was assigned guardenship of Gotham? Or could it be a different person all together?[/hl]
And Flare, he was taking about if Robin was his third or fourth favorite.
I picked up four:
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #530- Titanium Man is back. How did THAT happen? Great issue. Although the Editor's Notes were a little annoying, if very funny.
DAREDEVIL #83- I'm fast becoming a fan of this book. Amazing artwork, great story.
IRON MAN THE INEVITABLE #4- More interesting storyline, if a bit weird.
I also picked up a random Constantine issue. Decent enough.
Picked up Ultimate Extinction 2 and 3. Makes me wish I had gotten Ultimate books from the beginning, but it's still a fun read.
I got the following on 3-22:
squadron supreme 1
New avengers 17
ironmna the invevitable 4
spider woman 4
I was very happy with both of the spiderman issues. Wolverine 40 was a big dissapointment, nothing happened, i understand it's suposed to be a lead in to origins but it still bothered me. I also really love the art on x men.
ultimate extinction 3
x men 182 and 183.
Robin 148 was suprisingly good, way better then the stuff before OYL.
Batman 651 rocked and so did Catwoman 53
Picked up Green Lantern 10 (1 year later), Blue Beetle 1, and Teen Titans 32... I was looking for Batman 651 and Green Arrow 60 (STILL!) but they were either sold out or just aren't coming in...
Edit: oh, and the OMAC special was pushed back a week
Edit numero dos... Green Lantern was very good... pretty promising. Blue Bettle was one of those "meh, why should I care" kinda books, but I'll give it a couple more issues... it was really hard to follow... Titans was old but I missed it... and there ya go
Big week for me. Didn't help that I missed last week.
Lots of stuff I won't bother posting but I was very happy that I managed to get a copy of Robin 148. It was tough trying to track one down OWL.
Good read though can't wait to see how it turns out.
Big week this week
What I got but haven't read yet:
Clone Wars tpb Vol 8
All Star Superman 3
Uncanny Xmen 471
What I've read:
Tag and Blink Special Editon 1- Very fun! A very funny book set in the Star Wars universe.
Superman Batman 24- I have not enjoyed this arc very much, but this issue was better.
Blue Beetle 1-Very disapointed in this book. I expected more from a book spun out of Infinite Crisis. I will not be getting any more of this.
Action Comics 837-Excelent arc for Superman. The last page is Great!
The Illuminati- Very good start for Civil War.
Xmen Deadly Genesis 5- Good book, and the return of an important Xman.
Action Comics #837: Up, up and away continues to impress me. The Batman and Superman One Year Later arcs have so far been some of the best arcs to come out in years. Terrible about what happened to a certain character, but hey, it has its upsides too. The last page was great.
Bah, I still can't find the Batman one... which one are you talking about, #651? I heard there are multiple Supes/Bats "1 Year Later" titles...
Picked up the latest Fantastic Four and New Avengers. Both excellent, although the New Avengers was outstanding. Great art.
