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.


Ron Marz

Ron Marz is currently probably best known for being the writer of both the Witchblade and Artifacts comics.

The first comic book that I ever picked up, in the aisle at Cub Foods was written by Ron Marz. It was a Green Lantern comic. He wrote most of the GL comics I read growing up. Just think of what that did to my life.

With the launch of the new 52 from DC, Ron Marz has been writing a comic called Voodoo. Unfortunately, I learned just yesterday that issue #4 is the last issue he will be writing for that title. I will likely be dropping it after that. Apparently he doesn’t even really know why other than a vague statement of DC wanting the book to go in a different direction. He got the news from the book’s editor who was on the way out on the same time as him.

It turns out, Ron Marz is also pretty damn cool. This year he will be doing something that he apparently did last year. That is auctioning off comics that he has signed to raise money for Toys for Tots. That kicks ass. I will post more information when I have it.
