    Mister Miracle # 8 and Infidel # 2 for me.
  2. DC Comics

    Yeah, the Losers was a good read at the time, but it's not something I could see holding up for repeated read-throughs. I did really get a kick out of the movie, though, mainly due to the amazing cast.

    Nothing new for me this week. Man, I fucking love "Final Crisis", it just totally sings to me. I appreciated a crossover event that actually forced you to think and make connections on your own, especially with tie-ins that were actually important to the overall plot (i.e. essential in the case of the Morrison written ones) yet kept to a minimal number. If I had the extra cash I'd totally get that Final Crisis Omnibus that's coming this summer.

    Just Punisher # 223 for me this week.

    And Cybernary was written by Steve Gerber, am I remembering that correctly?

    A lot of Alan Grant's run on Batman HAS been collected, only it's not really got his name on it. Check out the Legends of the Dark Knight: Norm Breyfogle collections, they're a really solid chunk of Grant and Breyfogle's run that spanned Detective, Batman, and Shadow of the Bat. Definitely some of the best Batman stories of the post-Miller era.
  8. Marvel's One World Order

    I've read everything BUT the Zeb Wells New Mutants and most of the Thor: Ragnarok collection. I really loved Oeming's "Disassembled" arc back in the day, but didn't read the follow up Blood Oath or Beta Ray Bill minis, so looking forward to delving into those! And yeah, you've hit the problems with Stine's Man-Thing exactly. The captions and thought-bubbles were a distraction, that I just started to skip over in the later issues. It read like Stine was trying like hell to write like Steve Gerber, complete with the issues running into one another with little resolutions, but it failed on just about every level.

    Doctor Strange: Damnation # 3 Thanos # 17
  10. Marvel's One World Order

    Anyone else take advantage of that $.99 Marvel trade paperback sale on Comixology last week? I grabbed quite a few, some classic stuff I haven't read in ages: Tomb of Dracula: The Complete Sereis vol. 1 Werewolf by Night: The Complete Series vol. 1 Excalibur Epic Collection vol. 2: Cross Time-Caper Infernal Man-Thing New Mutants by Zeb Wells Ultimate Collection Vision: The Complete Series Thor: Ragnaroks Daredevil Epic Collection: Hearts of Darkness Man-Thing by R.L. Stine I've been reading through that Stine Man-Thing series, though, and it's appallingly bad. I'll have to re-read that Gerber Man-Thing collection immediately after to wash the Stine series out of my brain.

    Yeah, as prescient as Transmet was on a whole lot of things, some of it still feels really dated to the late 90s/early 2000s. And god damn it, Michael Cray is really pissing me off, but I keep reading it like a tool. I really want to support anything Wildstorm related so the characters/concepts don't fade away, but Cray has absolutely nothing to do with that universe OR his previous incarnation. It's nothing but an excuse to pull a "Ruins" with DCU properties, it's terrible in the extreme. The other two Wild Storm spin-offs are supposed to be coming this year (Wildcats and another one, Stormwatch? I don't remember), here's hoping they're more than just a trademark name bolted onto something totally unrecognizable.
  12. Other comics we read recently

    Oops, Aaron Campbell it is! I've been reading a lot of post-Ennis Punisher MAX stuff lately and Lawrence Campbell was the artist on a lot of those, guess his name was stuck in my mind.

    Read the first issue of Image's INFIDEL series that came out this week. Not too bad, kinda slow but seems to have an interesting horror premise. Plus, the artwork by Lawrence Campbell is really great.

    Mister Miracle # 7 and Wildstorm: Michael Cray # 6 for me.

    I'm only interested in Damned if Constantine gives Batman proper dog-fucking etiquette. I have a very specific fetish.
