The lights are on
Confused about continuity? Want to start your own Marvel vs. DC superhero war? Head on in to pick apart storylines, books, artists, authors, and much more. The superhero registration line starts here.
not yet, you can make one if you want, it'll be nice for me to not have to do it for once, also if you're grabbing swamp thing it might be a good idea to grab the hardcovers of alan moore's run on the character since the new series brings up stuff from it, like swamp things relationship with abigail arcane and whatnot, that and its pretty well written and flows better than some of Moores better known works

god damn double post, they need to get that delete button working so I can stop having to edit these so I don't look like an idiot
Hmm. I currently have 38 titles on my pull list at my LCS so I'm not going to burden anyone with that. This week's titles are:
Clive Barker's Hellraiser-This continues where the movies involving Kirsty Cotton left off. While this series hasn't been too great I'm both a Hellraiser and Clive Barker fan so I've stuck with it. Only recently have things between Kirsty and Pinhead become interesting though.
Elric: The Balance Lost-This follows Michael a present day version of Michael Moorcock's most famous creation as he's swept up in a quest to save all versions of reality. *Sigh* I've read all of the Moorcock titles about this character but this series just isn't good. Unfortunately, I keep forgetting to drop it.
Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison-This follows an Imperial Officer as he's swept up in resisting a Republic attack. More bada$$ Vader is all I need to know but this issue shows a lot of promise.
Aquaman- I've loved it so far, especially the art and the renditions of Black Manta
Batman Incorporated: Forgot about this one as it wasn't published for a while but the idea of the Bat family expanding internationally seemed neat. This also made me think of it as a bridge between Wayne's legacy and that of McGinnis but we'll see if that pans out.
Batman: The Dark Knight-I keep meaning to drop this series but I will abide this issue as it's a Court of Owls tie-in. Other than that, it's sucked something awful.
GL: New Guardians- I was initially intrigued by the potential of the title and such, but the story seems to be dragging on with little actual development.
Journey Into Mystery-Kid Loki, plus the narration is always delightful.
My pull list
Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit.
I recently visited a comic store in Chicago and bought a couple of comics of Black Panther, the Avengers, Captain America, and collection of old comics of Werewolf by Night. The Black Panther comics were great, and the Wereeolf by Night comics are awesome.
@Ghost: I had to look up Werewolf by Night and saw the Essential Volume on amazon. I may have to add it to my summer reading reading list.
all I know about werewolf by night is that it featured the first appearance of moon knight, I think? and may or may not be about a werewolf superhero? I dunno, anyways I feel like throwing a shout out to Joshua Drysart's new valiant book (valiants back baby!) Harbinger, It's gotten off to a nice start and while it's not as shocking and effective as his Unknown Soldier series (which you should all read if you have the stomach for it) its still solidly written and hey, it's Drysart, the guy wrote one of the best 25 issue series of all time in my opinion so he's officially on my writers to buy list, Garth Ennis continues to make Nick Fury awesome with the my war gone by miniseries, that essentially throws Fury into an old war thriller movie from the 40's (think casablanca with more sex and cursing) lets see, Kirkman's thief of thieves is finally picking up speed after about 4 issues of exposition, X-O manowar hit issue 2 and is pretty cool, Anton Arcane returned in Swamp thing in a disturbing new issue that continues to show off Scott Snyders understanding of all things swamp thing and that's all I've read of last weeks comics, I'll have to dive in and come back and hopefully my views will still be relevant

He's not really a hero. He's a hero/villain. He can't control his power
ah well, see, I was half right
This week's titles (read as: what I picked up this week):
Green Lantern Corps #32 and Justice League United #2, Bombshell variants. Enjoying the JL:U zaniness so far, and I'm a fan of the Corps til the day I die (all of them...GL, GL:C, GL:NG...no Red Lanterns yet, and Larfleeze is ridiculous).
Future's End should have been in there as well, but my LCS got screwed on their shipment. More to look forward to next week, I suppose.
Also, in case you guys have been out of the loop, Serenity: Leaves On the Wind is the latest run from Zack Whedon and the team at Dark Horse...picks up right where the movie left off. Is only a 6 issue run and they put out 5 a couple weeks ago. I highly recommend it for Browncoats and fans of the 'Verse.
Picked up Green Lantern: New Guardians #34 and Multiversity #1 (VARIANT COVER!!! - not the whitewashed variant, but the sketch cover...)
Enjoyed Multiversity once I got over the initial "WTH is going on?" aspects...(if you read it, you'll understand...) Not sure if I'll add it to my pull going forward, but Grant Morrison is a living legend that should not be passed up whenever he puts out new material...
And GL:NG was the "wrap up" of the Psions/Guardians conflict...action-packed issue that, of course, leaves an interesting thread at the end...If you've been following up to this point, pick it up. You won't regret it. And of course, the GL-verse is getting ready for its next big crossover event; the hanging thread may be some set up for that. We shall see.
