My New Reading List

A list of titles I plan to get and what I'm taking off.

Short Review: Green Arrow #23

What's the canon for Roy and Cheshire? The stuff from the Tynion RHATO run? Well we get some answers.

SPOILERS AHEAD

JLI did happen

And I mean the classic era as it's referred to as "the old Justice League International." Mentions of JLI found here and how Booster hasn't show up in Rebirth. The Flintstones crossover doesn't really count.

Very Short Review: Super Sons #4

The head on fight with Kid Amazo.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Green Arrow #22

Ollie meets the people destroying his city and fights to protect it with his family by his side. Dinah and him have an argument. It actually surprises me.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #21

I love having a comic being twice a month and wish this would be the case with some of my favourite series.

SPOILERS AHEAD

This is why you two have issues


The more you get into GL titles the more you realize Guy has tons of reasons for being pissed at Hal.

DC Comics August Solicits

There's some new titles and some extra books I will be getting.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #10 Vol. 2

Artemis and Jason have to deal with their past while Bizarro tries to be a hero by himself.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Short Review: Super Sons #3

Can Jon and Damian save the day without fighting with each other? No, no they can't. That happens in every issue.

SPOILERS AHEAD

I'll be pissed if he's the father

This has to do with Injustice and a theory someone has. Just no. Plus it makes no sense.

When you know there's too many resurrections


Why couldn't they at least retcon Damian's death again? At least Tim here has been kidnapped and assumed dead.

Odyssey of the Amazons #4

 Where the origin of the Amazons changes.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Short Review: Green Arrow #21

I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised. No Roy but a great build up and possible retcon for something I hated from the Tynion RHATO run.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Comic Book Haul

Not having a LCS close to home is a pain but I look forward to my new comics. I ordered online but Free Comic Book Day kept these a bit delayed. I'm also getting some new stuff in a week or so.

Mezco DC Villains

Some more of the Mezco figures.

Jack Kirby inspired comics

To celebrate the 100th birthday of a comic legend DC is releasing some comics based on his creations. What I get will be based on who the creative teams are though I'm already intrigued. We'll learn who is working on these in the solicits.

Mezco One: 12 Figures

Expensive figures but pretty awesome looking. I knew about them for awhile but beyond a couple I never really looked into them before. I mentioned the Arsenal one here.

Writers' Block: Wonder Woman Origin Pérez vs. Rucka

I got the trade for Rucka's origin for Rebirth Wonder Woman thinking I'd continue to enjoy the story. I didn't and found my self comparing it to the Pérez version. This is a comparison of similar story beats in their stories.

Should I be worried about Injustice 2?

I always semi-follow any story line that has my favorites in it. But apparently someone online already saw spoilers of one ending (didn't say which) and said they feel sick. That's not a good sign.

Happy Mother's Day!

The best moms I've read in comics this year have been Lois Lane and (in back issues) Queen Hippolyta.

Short Review: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #20

Has no one besides Rip ever dealt with time travel in this series ? Because no one else seems to know the rules. Or they know but don't care. I'm not sure.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Time Travel and Multiverse Crap is going on

And it seriously doesn't involve the Time Masters? WTF?! Forget Tim Drake, much as I love him Tim shouldn't be one of the prime threats. The freaking Time Masters should be.

Happy Futures?

I love time travel/possible future stories but I think we need more variety. I'm not asking for things to be perfect but having the heroes lead happy lives would be a nice change. Technically we got that for Booster although we never really see the whole picture. The Convergence change kind of ruined that too, at least what we see of it.

Fatherhood vs Crime fighter ? Why Not Both?

This seems to be a hot topic now with many asking if Batman can be one or the other. I haven't really seen anyone ask if he can be both. Why can't he? We see other heroes do better than him.

SPOILERS AHEAD for the Button plot

Disregarding Fan Favorites: How Marvel ended Spider-Girl

Once Marvel attempted to have Peter Parker and his wife Mary Jane have a child. Then the rug was pulled out from the creators having the baby disappear and never be mentioned again. At least until a What if? issue came with the child as a teen that they dubbed Spider-Girl.

The character suffered a number of cancellations but was repeatedly saved over the years thanks to loyal fans. To this day May "Mayday" Parker a.k.a. Spider-Girl has the longest solo run of any female character at Marvel. Yet Marvel kept forcing changes onto the character to take away her spotlight.

Free Comic Book Day was kinda disappointing

Most were gone by the time I got there and the things I was I was going to buy weren't there. Didn't the new Wonder Woman trade come out this week? It was too crowded to really ask anyway but I asked someone at a book store who wasn't sure. I also found out Roy is still in Green Arrow but didn't see the current issue.

On the bright side I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Which was pretty good although I know I missed a lot of Easter Eggs going on in the background.

EDIT: I know I can get the free comics online it's just more fun to get them in the store.

May the Fourth be With You

To celebrate the day of Star Wars love Hot Toys has released images for their new Princess Leia figure from Empire Strikes Back when she was on Hoth. I'm blown away by this one.

Everyone's Excited about Injustice 2

I'm more nervous about how characters are written. I'm expecting the worst.

Dear DC Please stop writing Damian as the only son that matters

After reading yet another "I have a son" mention I need to vent a little.
