Quite the selection today. This week without pictures because I don't feel like getting any.
This is by far and away the most enjoyable book I'm reading.
Blue Beetle #2
I think I'm liking this update (not that I read much with Ted Kord to begin with). The way they play with time is fascinating. It was a bit disconcerting in issue one but here it is used to great effect. That's a great reveal, topped only in Battle for Bludhaven. I do like the updated and soon to be very dated, Brotherhood of Evil...I mean the Posse. The characters are all young and fresh. It's not a perfect book but it's a fun book that's not afraid to use some unique storytelling practices.
Iron Man: The Inevitable #5
I like the art. I really like the art here however I felt a bit lost in the story. Does Tony Stark and the Spymaster (out of costume) know each other. I may have to read all of these issues in one sitting when it's done. I do have one doubt though - so many characters were brought in, then dumped, is this a good thing or a bad thing? I can't decide but you all should. Oh, and what's the deal with Doc Samson, if someone cuts his hair will he die?
Battle for Bludhaven #2
Now THAT is a reveal. And here we were thinking he moved on to another universe altogether. I give you kudos DC on keeping this under wraps. Oh yeah, the rest of the story is progressing nicely.
Villains United Special
Note to Dave Campbell, this comic features the return of El Diablo. Just thought you should know. Again, I'm liking the story but would like someone to do a page by page breakdown of all the characters because I know less than half of them. If they're names weren't mentioned I probably don't know anyone outside of the more major villains (or ones made fun of on blogs).
Also bought but not read Solo and Batman. I don't want to read Batman until I get that last issue of Detective Comics. They are planning to reprint right? Right? Also dropped Hulk. That just wasn't going to last. I was tempted by Wolverine and the Annihilation stuff after the good words I've read. I guess my plan to reduce my purchases didn't work this week. Fuck.
