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.


New Comic Day 01/11/12

It is once again new comic day. This week, I’m going to try to do this post a little bit better than usual. This time, I will actually be checking my order list as I write this so I won’t forget anything important.

The first big release for me this week is, as always, the GL title. Since this is the second week of the month, that title is Green Lantern. According to someone in the GL thread on SomethingAwful, this week we will be seeing the end of the first arc of the new series. It should be interesting to see what happens on Korugar with the the Sinestro Corps.

Batgirl and Batwoman are both also out this week. Batgirl has been quite enjoyable so far. That title is now entering the second arc. At the end of last issue, Barbara’s long-estranged mother showed up at her door. Batwoman is supposed to be ending its first arc this week and I expect the book to look as amazing as ever. The drawing is fantastic, the colors accent that perfectly, and the page layouts are an art in themselves.

A new Star Wars title from Dark Horse also launches this week. It’s being launched in support of the new MMORPG, Star Wars The Old Republic. The series is called Knights of the Old Republic.

The second issue if DC’s The Ray is out this week and I enjoyed the hell out of the last one. It doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The second issue of the current Dark Tower series is out this week from Marvel and a Deadlands one shot should also be on comic retailers’ shelves.

Those are my top books of interest this week. There is also #4 of the Dunwich Horror comic, Suicide Squad, and Mister Terrific. Of course there are plenty more and you should take a look to see what interests you the most.
