After a dismal showing last week, I’m happy to see I’m picking up more comics this week. Still, I was a little disappointed I didn’t get any feedback suggesting new books to try. Obviously our little community needs to chime in a bit more in the comments section. Digression aside, here’s what I’m looking at this week.
- BATMAN #703 – Didn’t #702 just come out 2 weeks ago? I’m with Matt, in that this Final Chapter stuff was a bit of a mess, but I’m not really looking forward to Tony Daniel’s return to the writing duties.
- BATMAN AND ROBIN #14 – If I were DC I think I would stagger my Batman books over the whole month rather than releasing two in one week, but that’s their right, I suppose (plus if they’re releasing Batman bi-monthly I guess they already are). At any rate, this is currently DC’s best bat-book. Pick ‘er up.
- GREEN LANTERN #57 – Still on notice, but Green Lantern is still hanging in there. This issue with Larfleeze with probably tickle my lantern-bone, so I expect this one to be a winner.
- IMAGE FIRSTS LIBERTY MEADOWS #1 – As happy as I am to see a reprint of Liberty Meadows, this one makes no sense since there’s no ongoing series to promote with it. Still, for a dollar you’ll get a full issue of one of the greatest strips the funny pages have ever seen. Big words, but absolutely true. Frank Cho is a master, and once you get hooked here I encourage you to track down the Image reprint collections, beautiful hardbound editions of the stories. I never, ever buy multiple copies of comics to get them in different formats…except for Liberty Meadows. It’s just that good.
So, that’s it for me. What are YOU looking at?
