Comics XIII

Recommended Posts

It seems lazy to say Saga but the last 6 issues were great. And it's the only comic i read ASAP. At least it can't be my book of 2019.

I'm enjoying Snyder's justice leave despite hating his heavy metal series.

House of whispers has me hooked but i'm flagging with the other sandman books. Thankfully they are stand alone.

I really need to catch up on all of remender's image books and East of West as I decided to switch to trades only to find myself not buying them either. Lazarus's weird schedule has caused me to lose interest but now it seems to have the new format i'll try and catch up. It's been too ling since i read any "southern bastards" either.

Walking dead has picked up a little in trade format .

I'll be buying mr miracle once the trades are out. The Vision is one of my favourite comics of the last 5 years and eaaily my favourite Marvel comic in a long time. Wanted to read it in one go though.

I've noticed the immortal hulk getting a lot of rave reviews in end if year lists online. Does anyone know if it's genuinely good? Also Donny Cates must be talented/good at promotion as there seems to be a lot of love for him even if his marvel titles don't have me even wanting to try them

Humble bundle is having a deal on Deadly Class for $15 for all the comics

Nice timing with the show about to come out too.

I got mixed up with my rating of the new sandman series. It's "the dreaming" which i'm enjoying. I might also get another issue of lucifer before throwing the towel in.

The $4/$5 comic standard with value of sterling has been really noticeable for my wallet of late. I really need to switch fully to digital and graphic novels. 

I'm scratching my head at DC and Bendis claiming to reach out to young readers with their young justice line of books. At $4 for (according to reviews) half a story I'm not sure this is going to win over anyone but rich kids or kids who steal online. I just hope the digital versions are at a price kids can buy with their pocket money. It sort of feels like this should be the line of comics sold in supermarkets rather than the one currently being sold. As it is i suspect this new line of comics is only really going to be read by older comic readers which sort of misses the point

I'm liking Die - it's interesting but admittedly not for everyone.

Grant Morrision's Green Lantern is also good.

Just finished Justice League's The Totality volume 1. 

Any collection that has Batsy saying "I'm inside Clark's body" as merely a very minor highlight has to be very good and it is.

Yeah it's tongue in cheek fun. I mean they bloe up the moon and no-one seems that fussed. Then they have superman punch it back together. There's an old school playfulness with the concept.

I actually  missed that part :mellow:

I also liked that the TRINITY was sidelined in favor of J'onn, John Stewart, Flash, and Hawkgirl.  It reminded me of Morrison's epicness (particularly that bit of Luthor going to the end of time or whenever) without being reminded of how awesome Batgod is.

Eta:

And I'm not sure whether that bit where Diana had to give Barry a pep talk had anything to do with the tv show.  (Though JL Flash had more valid reasons to be shaken.)

Picked up the 1st issue on the new Criminal. It’s really good. Apparently Brubaker and Phillips were going to do another story set in The Fade Out universe, but decided to return to Criminal instead. Glad they did.

It's so long since I read criminal I can't really remember any of it. easily 9 years since I read it. Do they at least cut us some slack and feature a stand alone story?

Brubaker literally mentions in the back of the issue he wants people to be able to jump right in on this one. It’s obviously connected to the old stuff though. There’s s little rundown of all the previous volumes at the end, too, that might help refresh your memory.
