So Many Comics

It was another big week, and I haven't gotten to the Wonder Woman '77 Special yet, having saved the best for last. But here's what I did read, with some leftovers from last week, for the one or two of you still reading this blog. :)

Harley's Little Black Book 3
I'm reading only the issues with guest stars I love, and this issue has Zatanna and it's pretty darn fun as Zee and Harley help some spirits move on.

Black Canary 10
Two different artists on this issue and the styles don't mesh well, though I like both. Batgirl helps out Dinah who is trying to get to the bottom of her mother's past. This is the first I'm reading anything with New52 Batgirl and while she seems so young, she was fine. At least, we're back to the main story.

Gotham Academy 17
This guest starred Black Canary, the music group, including DD (Dinah) performing at the academy. Also, Robin is taking books from the school. To what end? Ah, to be continued! The usual fun.

Astro City 34
SteelJack solves his first real case, but it isn't easy, and, well, I teared up. I usually do at the end of the stories in this comic.

Leaving Megalopolis: Surviving Megalopolis 4
Things are getting really complicated, but we get a clue about what's in the giant pit that formed in the city and started the whole trouble. Between Simone's wackier characters here and Calafiore's amazing art, I had a few Secret Six flashbacks from some panels. That's a good thing.

Poison Ivy Cycle of Life and Death 4
Catwoman guest stars and ups the fun factor as Ivy enlists Selina's aid to help her steal back her stolen research. I've been really enjoying this.

Titans Hunt 7
With Rebirth coming, this is now an 8 part mini-series, not the 12 parts originally planned (if I recall properly), so things are amping up at a faster pace now. It turns out Lilith had hired the assassins now after the Titans to help with neutralizing the Twister, but that sure didn't go as planned. I'm really hoping this ends in a resurgence of the Titans I loved so much.

Captain Marvel 4
Aside from loving Kris Anka's gorgeous cover, I found this a fun chapter in the latest story of Carol's life. Because of the Kree symbol on her uniform and her Kree-based powers, Carol is under attack when a second ship of Kree haters shows up. This incarnation of Captain Marvel is pretty fun.

Sam Wilson Captain America 8 Standoff
I haven't been reading any of this storyline and none of the Captain America books, but I saw that Bucky was in this, so I had to give it a try. I have no idea what's going on, but there are some great Buck/Steve and Sam/Steve scenes in this now that Steve has regained his youth and powers. And the idea of a cosmic cube taking the form of a little girl is pretty darn cool.


  1. am, Steve and Becky really were a lot of fun!

    1. It's a good thing I know you meant to type Bucky, not Becky. ;)

  2. I hate hate hate the auto correct thingie! I SWEAR I typed in Bucky!

    Arrgghh! It just tried to do it again!
