As it still turns out, having a full time job during the week and then having to take care of a crazy puppy by yourself over the weekend, isn't all that helpful in terms of having time to read comics... as you may tell by me posting this sometime past 7pm here on the East coast... annnnnnnd the Witcher 3 comes out next week, so a general "god damn it" to everything.
Howard the Duck #3
Uncanny Avengers #4
Rick and Morty #2
Southern Cross #3Despite my “I’m real tired of Sci-Fi” stance lately, I’m still sticking with this one for whatever reason. Going through this issue, I, not a huge fan of the Alien franchise, realized that I would probably get more out of this series if I was a fan of the Alien franchise. It just has that low-tech future sort of vibe to it, which is cool in a stylistic sense. But, all that being said, despite me being all “I guess I’m still reading this one?” this issue in particular did do a good deal to up the interest factor for me, revealing some mysteries and morally grey intentions behind them. It’s slow, but I’m coming around to this book in full, month by month.
Black Science #14
DC SNEAK PEEK QUICK HITS TIME!
- Justice League 3001: This is the one book I came away from going "I should read this." I read the first couple of JL3K issues, but fell off with whatever story they were telling. It was funny as shit though... Superman is an ass, Batman is a total dick, Wonder Woman is a barbarian... Funny stuff. But sometime between me dropping it and now, the writers were given the "do what the fuck ever" green light and have been running with it. Also, I enjoy Howard Porter's art these days way more than I did back in the JLA days.
- Deathstroke: Dropped this book because the dumb violence wasn't enough to keep me reading, and a poorly written Harley is a no-no to me. Nothing changed.
- Lobo: I'm surprised this book is still going, honestly.
- Dr. Fate: This is a straight up answer to Ms. Marvel right? Goes far past the ethnicity to the art, set-up and supporting cast. Hell, they both have prefixes in the title as well.
- Bizarro: I enjoy a good Bizzaro interpreting people telling him that they hate him as love, but not enough to read a book.
- Bat-Mite: I have a strict "I don't want to read Dan Jurgens written books because he's boring" policy, which will fit more with Batman Beyond (and whatever the fuck they did to that franchise) but here, I prefer my Bat-Mite super trippy, instead of full on cartoony.
- Aquaman: I love Trevor McCarthy's art, but he's one of those guys that whenever he misses an issue, the person DC replaces him with is not up to snuff, so I'm cautious. I liked reading Aquaman, I may keep tabs on it when this new run starts.
- Green Lantern: The Lost Army: I'm super bummed that Jesus Saiz is drawing a book I have no interest in, that's all I got to say.
- Action Comics: Every now and then I'll go "I'm going to try Superman books again" because of shit like Aaron Kuder's art... but I swear to god they've all been in one big crossover for the past two years, so I'll continue to pass.
