New Comic Day: In and Out
Out: JLA/JSA Crossover. As much as I love Geoff Johns's JSA, and as much as I thought the retro-hip Meltzer JLA had a certain trashy charm, I just can't wrap my head around this crossover anymore. Maybe it's the 50 separate characters I have to follow, maybe it's the fact that I've bought 4 issues so far and I still can't tell you what the hell is going on. Like Cyclone's costume, though, it has that "Lollipop League" sensibility.
In: World War Hulk. Didn't have much hope for this crossover "event" past the "big dumb fun" factor but I have to admit that I'm hooked. Not happy that I have to buy 2-3 issues of "Heroes For Hire" to complete my WWH collection, though. And I'm tired of Reed and Tony being dicks. I hope Bruce smacks the shit out of them
Out: Supergirl. I gave this book a chance for the last three issues so far, just to be fair. It's a little wretched. "Oh, Silver Age Supergirl shows up!" Yep, that's never been done before. but also, it's sort of a lame duck with the new team coming on board. Same for "Teen Titans."
In: That David Hine book from Dark Horse with all the spookies and the Quesada quote on the cover. Cool.
Out: Buffy. Not because it's bad, but because I'm resigned to getting the trade paperback. Same for Lone Ranger.
One book that I wished I picked up: That cartoon Legion Of The Superheroes thing. I love that shit.
Laziest moment: finding out that I would have to travel to the second floor of the comic shop to get the issues of "Army of Darkness Vs. Marvel Zombies" I missed and deciding then and there to wait for the trade.
Weirdest moment: registering for this "customer rewards" thing at the shop, giving my name, and having the dude at the counter say without missing a beat: "oh, I've...read your blog."
