Holy Comics, Batman ’66!

This week I was almost going to skip out on going to get books, but I’m seriously addicted and I just can’t seem to help myself.


This has been consitently good, but then its not part of the New 52 proper… so it has that going for it.

Batman items on the block. I have been gettings Batman & … since Damien died and its alright..
Batman Beyond Universe is always excellent!!
Batman/Superman, can someone tell me what happened? Break it down for me please. I can’t tell what the artist was drawing half the time and the other half, I had no idea “when” things were taking place. The variant cover is nice looking though.

Justice League and Forever Evil.
JL of A #8 finally gives us a look into what happened after the CSA showed up and I have to say, been there, done that. The variant looks cool. The two FE #1s, I picked up because I hadn’t yet. (Great logic, right?)

I really wanted to like the new MOTU book. The first 6 issue mini and then the first 6 issues of this new series were good. The art though has suffered a giant setback with this issue. Just why do people like the dark, poorly drawn, scratchy looking comics? I want to look at each panel and be able to clearly see whats going on. This is a prime example of the exact opposite of how defined I like my comic art to be. Get Woodall to draw some MOTU!
Supergirl is another book I want to like, but this issue just reverses the “big reveal” from the Cyborg Superman issue from last month and then undoes the last couple issues. Why do I feel like I wasted so much money here? Oh, because I have. The story concludes with no change to how things were before. Unless I missed something, which I doubt.

Lights Out… Good name for a so far boring storyline that has been done to death. And for what they appear to do to Kyle in this issue. Give me a break, he already fought those demons! He GREW already as a character and as a Lantern!
Rogues is great. The only downside is its not old continuity and thus, free of the Forever Evil crossover.

I don’t know if you noticed or not, but I’ve begun to get into Marvel a bit more than ever before… Spider-man has been leaps and bounds better than most of the New 52. I couldn’t pass up the Lego cover. Thats all kinds of awesome!

And finally, I picked up some back issues because I didn’t drop enough money there already.

Now I haven’t read the two Atom books, but they are reprints from the glory days.
Superman/Gen 13 is something I already picked up, but I had the variant cover set and thought I should snag these while I have the chance. Gen13 isn’t my cup of tea but I do like Supergirl stories and anything thats not main continuity Superman stuff, when it maintains that which makes up SUPERMAN.
