It's Wednesday, so it's time to go Comic Gazing... Well, kind of... With Memorial Day taking place this past Monday, the comic book release day was pushed back from Wednesday to Thursday, so no new comics until tomorrow. But Memorial Day or not, I have a schedule to keep, so here's the comics I'll be getting, you know, once they're actually released!
Adventure Comics #12: Well, this is the final Adventure Comic of my current subscription, and with how lousy the DCU has been lately, this is one of a few DC books I'll be dropping as I slowly begin to switch my allegiances back to Marvel. Interest Level: 1 out of 10.
Brightest Day #3: Probably one of the biggest comic related disappointments I've seen since the end of the House of M... Interest Level: 4 out of 10.
JSA All-Stars #7: I haven't read the past two issues, so yeah, I'd better get to that!Interest Level: 6 out of 10.
Justice Society of America #39: Interest Level: 7 out of 10.
Red Hood: Lost Days #1: Jason Todd + writer Judd Winick = HIGH expectations! Hopefully Judd can fix the character Crazy Grant Morrison wrecked in Batman and Robin... Interest Level: 10 out of 10.
Red Robin #13: Woo-hoo, now that Fabian Nicieza is taking over the writing duties in this series, I can FINALLY begin to read about one of my favorite DC characters again! Interest Level: 10 out of 10.
Superman/Batman Annual #4: Why not? Interest Level: 6 out of 10.
Avengers Prime #1: Yeah, I know BENDIS is writing this, but it stars Steve Rogers, Iron Man and Thor... Not even HE can mess THAT up... Can he? Interest Level: 7 1/2 out of 10.
Hawkeye and Mockingbird #1: My FAVORITE comic book archer, Hawkeye, and his insanely awesome (ex-)wife Mockingbird... TOGETHER in a series?!? THANK YOU Marvel!!!Interest Level: 10+ out of 10!
Thanos Imperative #1: Interest Level: 7 1/2 out of 10.
Not a huge week for me with only ten books, but there are a couple here that I'm REALLY looking forward to. Before I get to that though, DC easily takes the battle for my buck this week by a 7 to 3 edge. However, the comic I'm most looking forward to is Hawkeye and Mockingbird #1, a Marvel book... That's actually been somewhat of a reoccurring trend lately... I may end up buying more DC books, but I'm more interested in the Marvel titles I collect as of late. And with my recent EXTREME displeasure with the current direction of the DCU, coupled with my elation over Marvel's current direction, I can easily see myself picking up fewer and fewer DC books, and more Marvels as the summer progresses. For example, I'm dropping Adventure Comics and Flash from DC, while I'll be picking up Thunderbolts, Thor, and possibly Iron Man from Marvel. I guess I should consider changing my sign-off from Long Live The Legion, to Avengers Assemble!!!
