Although I'm supposedly still on vacation, I have a pretty full Comic Gazing post to put up tonight... It figures my pull list for the past three weeks or so has been on the low side, and this week(my blog vacation week!)DC puts out a whole slew of books I'll be picking up. Oh well, the longer I make this intro, the longer this post is gonna take, so less yakking, more Gazing!
Batman: Return of Bruce Wayne #3: Great googly-moogly, is it ALREADY time for the third issue of this atrocity?! I was hoping this comic wouldn't come out... well, ever... Interest Level: 1 out of 10.
Batman: Streets of Gotham #13: All I know is that Hush is in this issue, which is good enough for me! Interest Level: 8 1/2 out of 10.
Detective Comics #866: Interest Level: 7 out of 10.
Green Arrow #1: Well, all I can do here is cross my fingers, hold my breath and hope for the best... Interest Level: 8 out of 10.
Green Lantern Corps #49: Interest Level: 6 1/2 out of 10.
Justice League Generation Lost #4: The fact that Super Fake Beetle is in this mini makes my head actually hurt! Interest Level: 1 out of 10.
Justice League: Rise of Arsenal #4: Thank god this garbage is almost over... Interest Level: 0 out of 10.
Supergirl #53: Interest Level: 7 out of 10.
Superman/Batman #73: Interest Level: 6 out of 10.
Superman #700: Well, at least Grant Morrison isn't writing this... Interest Level: 8 1/2 out of 10.
Zatanna #2: After an impressive debut issue, I'm going into this issue with pretty high hopes. Don't let me down DC! Interest Level: 8 out of 10.
Avengers #2: Can BENDIS continue his shocking resurgence of late?!? I'll probably know for sure after I read this one. Interest Level: 9 out of 10.
Thunderbolts #145: Interest Level: 7 1/2 out of 10.
Wolverine Origins #49: Interest Level: 9 out of 10.
Wolverine Weapon X #14: Interest Level: 6 out of 10.
X-Factor #206: Wake me when the Second Coming story is over... Interest Level: 0 out of 10.
Well, this week was sure a lopsided win for DC! The final tally was DC: 11(!) and Marvel 5. So that's a healthy 16 books this week, although I'm not planning on reading one of them anytime soon(X-Factor)and I'm positively dreading 3 other books... All in all, this week's comics should be interesting and should lead to some spirited conversation around here, and I'd call that a good thing. Until tomorrow, Avengers Assemble!
