Wednesday's Loot - 2 May 2007 (and last week's)

52 Week 51
Did I mention how happy I am to get a bit of Animal Man and his family every now and again in 52? I’m sad we’ll have less of them. Also, I like the evil-Skeets reveal, although I’m more partial to giant robots.
I rate this comic: Worthy of the kid asking to keep Starfire.

52 Week 52
Has it been a year? Wow, now I’ll have to sit and read them all back to back at some point. How much do you love stories that begin with “It was during one of my strange adventures…”? Because I know I love them a lot! Also, I think this explanation of the multiverse or megaverse works and allows the creators to just make it up as they go along rather than get bogged in continuity. Some nice Booster Gold moments, and Dr. Sivana’s home coming was fantastic.
I rate this comic: A decent ending, but didn’t really question all the one-year later answers, if you follow.

Shazam: The Monster Society of Evil #3
This is still one of the best comics coming out. It’s just a pure joy to read. Even with a dick joke thrown in for good measure – without actually being a dick joke.
I rate this comic: Pure comic goodness.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8 #3
This still remains a strong comic book version of the show. You’re either really into it or just don’t particularly care about it. I do think if you were coming to this cold it is a lot like the continuity porn of superhero team comics.
I rate this comic: Sweet Buffy.
