It's Wednesday, which means it's once again time to go Comic Gazing! I'm enjoying my summer vacation so far, thanks for asking. I have about five weeks before I head back to school to take some summer courses, but for these next five weeks I fully intend to enjoy myself! And how better to enjoy the summer then to talk about comic books? I figure I'll have at least two new reviews up tomorrow night(including Siege #4), and then it's my new weekend block of Flashback Friday, The Best of the Rest and THE Random Scan of the Week. How about that, a few months ago this blog was nothing but barely coherent reviews, now to go along with those barely coherent reviews, a few non-coherent regular features! Yes, good times... Anyhow, this is still Comic Gazing, which means that I should do just that, gaze at comics or something...
Batman: Streets of Gotham #12: Interest Level: 7 1/2 out of 10.
Brightest Day #2: I've pretty much given up all hope for the DCU to be perfectly honest with you. To me, this mini-series perfectly encapsulates everything that is wrong in the DCU right now. I've gone on and on about my problems with DC ad nauseam, so I won't go on another extended tear(even though I easily could!), but in a nutshell, DC needs to realize that it is 2010, and not 1965... Embrace the future DC, NOT the past!!! Interest Level: 6 out of 10.
Justice League of America #45: Interest Level: 7 1/2 out of 10.
Legion of Super-Heroes #1: I doubt this series will make my monthly pull list, but I figured I should at least give it a courtesy read before I trash it. Interest Level: 4 1/2 out of 10.
Superman/Batman #72: Interest Level: 5 1/2 out of 10.
Superman: War of the Supermen #3: Interest Level: 8 out of 10.
Zatanna #1: Why not? Interest Level: 6 1/2 out of 10.
Age of Heroes #1: Let's see what Marvel has in store as they enter the Heroic Age. It's got to be better then the whole Dark Reign storyline, right??? Interest Level: 7 1/2 out of 10.
Avengers Assemble #1: I do loves me some Marvel Handbooks! Interest Level: 7 out of 10.
Avengers #1: Even with BENDIS as the writer, I have HIGH hopes for this series... Interest Level: 9 out of 10.
Deadpool #23: Interest Level: 6 1/2 out of 10.
X-Factor #204: Interest Level: 4 out of 10.
And that's it for this week. The final tally is DC: 7, Marvel: 5. So it seems that DC wins the battle for my money this week, although I have to say that I'm a lot more interested in the Marvel books then the DC ones. I was pretty close to grabbing a few other Marvel comics, and if I had, the final tally could have been much different...
