What comics have you been reading?

Previous topic - Next topic


Read the latest two issues of Patsy Walker. I can see what DeCarlo Rules meant about the art in issue #6. It was in the style of a little kids' series. I actually didn't mind it because I like the artist's series Bee and Puppycat. I also read the last 2 issues of this series as well. Sad to see it go. There are so few current series that feature multiple short stories in one issue which I prefer over an issue long story when I'm tired. There's Grumpy Cat and the Disney comics. Anyone know any others?

SHADOW LADY VOL. 3: SUDDEN DEATH (Dark Horse, 2001) - Interesting superhero manga by Masakazu Katsura. I knew of his work from a couple of anime shows (also superheroes) I'd seen that he created, Tiger & Bunny (about superheroes competing in a reality TV series) and Zetman (which began as a manga, but hasn't gotten an official English language translation). The Japanese always seem to put an interesting spin on superheroes. I picked this up at my LCS out of curiosity (because I'd never read Masakazu's manga, only seen his anime). I enjoyed it, and will probably try to track down the first two volumes (this was the concluding arc of a longer series which ran 24 issues in the standard floppy comic format). Shadow Lady is a Japanese teenager who gets a gift of magical eye shadow from her grandmother, which when applied, turns her into Shadow Lady, whose job it is to retrieve a series of demon gemstones that are like eggs with hibernating demons inside waiting to be reborn. If they awaken they will cause the destruction of the world. She's assisted by a small magical creature from the demon world named De-Mo. The big problem is that these demon gems are all possessed by respectable members of society, and they are exerting a corrupting influence on them, causing them to commit acts of evil (but surreptitiously, so they maintain their respectable image). When Shadow Lady tries to steal the gems from them, she's considered a thief and is being hunted by a young police detective (who is also conflicted because he's starting to fall in love with her).

JUGHEAD (1987) #89, 90, 91, 93, 94, 160 - I'll be reviewing these in detail later in another thread.

by Michael Kupperman - Very interesting collection of an alternative anthology series of absurdist/dadaesque stories.

Yeah, I noticed that. I can't believe they haven't reprinted those somewhere, or done a digital exclusive themed collection of Jughead vs Trula. I've got plenty of reprints of later Trula stories in the digests, but I've not seen the original 5 reprinted anywhere. Comics.org couldn't help me there.

I took Archie #9 off my wall & read it again.

DeCarlo Rules

JUGHEAD & ARCHIE JUMBO COMICS DIGEST #5 - I've been trying to fill in the few issues I was missing of this digest title. As it turns out, I'd already read all of the stories in here, probably because I'd read them earlier in one of those 1000 Page Comics Digests or Giant Comics Digests, so nothing to remark on here. Only missing one issue of this series now, and two issues of ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE to complete the set.

On Tuesday I read
Archie #9-Fish the one from my subscription
Jughead #7-Charm, this is one they actually mailed me when my 6 issue subscription was over.
Jughead #211-which is my all time favorite Jughead issue

Let's see, where did I leave off...?

INVINCIBLE #0 (2005)
by Paul Dini & Eduardo Risso

Wednesday 06/22:
FLASH (2016) #1
WONDER WOMAN (2016) #1
AQUAMAN (2016) #1

... Already starting to lose interest in a couple of those newly-"Rebirth"ed DC universe titles. FLASH and AQUAMAN were both kind of 'meh'. I think #52 was the last of the current JUSTICE LEAGUE series, and it was (oddly) kind of a prequel to ACTION COMICS #957 (which came out a couple of weeks ago). #51 was a semi-confusing fill-in issue in which remnant characters from different prior iterations of the DC universe appeared, which just leaves you scratching your head as to what that was all about. Maybe it'll be followed up on elsewhere, or after the JUSTICE LEAGUE REBIRTH #1 issue comes out, who knows? That issue #51 Justice League team seemed to have the old Superman (which is to say, the New 52 Superman, the one they started with) in it, so it had to have taken place before his recent death. The DC Universe is just a confusing place sometimes. ACTION COMICS is still interesting to me, with Lex Luthor putting on an S-shield symbol on his power armor, and attempting to take the deceased Superman's place (meanwhile, over in the regular SUPERMAN Rebirthed title, it's the old pre-New 52 DCU Superman taking his place). They meet in this issue, and have some conflict over that. DETECTIVE COMICS has Batwoman leading a team of Gotham-centric Bat-spinoff characters that includes Spoiler (Stephanie Brown, daughter of minor Bat-villain The Cluemaster), Orphan (Cassandra Cain, one of the former Batgirls), Red Robin (Tim Drake, formerly Robin III), and Clayface II (Matt Hagen). While the idea of having a title with a permanent assemblage of Bat-allies is the kind of no-brainer that makes you wonder why it never happened before, I have to question the inclusion of bat-villain Clayface. I can see where they'd want at least one character with actual superpowers, but if they wanted a monster-type guy, Man-Bat (a.k.a. Kirk Langstrom) was definitely the way to go. While Matt Hagen's origin seems kind of tragic, he's always been presented as pretty irredeemable bad guy, so his inclusion smacks of a really arbitrary, illogical editoral decision. The non-inclusion of the better-known and more popular Batman sidekicks Nightwing (Dick Grayson) and Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) was sort of understandable as they both have their own teams (Titans and Birds of Prey, respectively).  Don't know how long I'll stick with these books, as I'm already thinking about dropping FLASH and AQUAMAN from my reading list. I might stick with ACTION, DETECTIVE and WONDER WOMAN for a few more issues.
