New Comic Day 02/15/2012

It’s new comic day again.

DC titles on my list for the week :

Batman #6 — I really like what Scott Snyder has been doing with the Council of Owls. It’s got to reach a climax soon and it should be interesting.

Birds of Prey #6 — While not really among my favorites of the new 52, I have thus far considered Birds of Prey to be worth ordering every month. Last month things got a bit strange so I’m sure to keep reading for at least a little while longer.

Captain Atom #6 — Again, not the best but worth reading. I’m surprised that this book made it through DC’s first round of cuts. I haven’t heard any great reviews for it or anything so maybe it will be in the second. I like it well enough, anyway.

DC Universe Presents #6 — The first story of this anthology series, which starred Deadman, ended last month. This month starts a new story featuring the Challengers of the Unknown.

Green Lantern Corps #6 — While I’m unlikely to ever not read a Green Lantern title as long as I’m reading comics, this one has annoyed me a little by messing with established canon more than any of the others. That always happens, though.

My Greatest Adventure #5 — I’m pretty sure that this limited series is nearing its end so if you haven’t read it before now, don’t bother trying to get into it. I’ve liked it quite a bit, though, and would suggest picking up the trade for something a little different.

Nightwing #6 — Solid book so far and part of the Batman group.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #6 — Easily the weakest Batman group book that I keep getting. It’s silly with bits of ignorance. It’s capable of offending. It’s also pretty damn amusing at times.

Other Comics :

Witchblade #153 — I’m still following the new Top Cow universe, for now. Darkness #151 marks that title joining the new universe with Artifacts and Witchblade.

Dark Tower Gunslinger Way Station #3 — It’s Dark Tower, enough said.

Mis-Adventures of Adam West #1 — I’ve got to check this out. What the hell could be in store for the world here?

…and that’s it. This week also sees the release of more infection tie-ins but I haven’t read the first one at this point and I don’t feel like going all out on a big event right now.
