Natalie’s Wednesday in Comics 7/13/2016

Wednesday is the best day of the week!  It looks like I won’t be getting anything but DC books for the foreseeable future…  I can’t commit to putting anything else on pulls at the moment.  This week I got:

  • Nightwing Rebirth #1 – 100% Loved it.
  • The Flash #2 – Ok, that was a strange turn of events but I’m into it.
  • Wonder Woman #2 – Enjoying this even though it’s yet another origin retelling.
  • Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps Rebirth #1 – Ummm… I feel a bit lost with this one.  I just haven’t read many Green Lantern books the last 5 years or so…  Looks promising but I may need to invest in back issues.
  • New Super-Man #1 – 😦 Had no real expectations for this but ended up not liking it much.
  • Detective Comics #936 – So/So stuff.  Moderately interesting but I don’t like Batwoman.
  • Action Comics #959 – Wow!  Now that was action packed.  Some really nice page layouts too.
  • Wacky Raceland #2 – Ugg.  Dick’s story was… upsetting.  Do not like.

Now getting down to actually ranking them in the order that I enjoyed them this week; it was easy to pick the top and the bottom book but a lot harder to decide on the others.

Natalie’s Wednesday in Comics 6/8/2016

New Comics:

It’s new comic book day!  Mostly reading the DC Rebirth storylines this week.  So first let me rank these comics in the order that I enjoyed them the most.

Natalie’s Comic Rankings for 6/8/2016

  1. Action Comics #957

  2. The Flash Rebirth #1

  3. Wonder Woman Rebirth #1

  4. Aquaman Rebirth #1

  5. Detective Comics #934

  6. Wacky Raceland #1

And briefly some thoughts about these issues.  Wacky Raceland was a little too grim-dark for me.  Detective Comics just didn’t do anything standout, kind of feel meh about the character line up.  Aquaman was ok but seemingly written for absolute new readers,  nothing exciting for old fans but good if you knew nothing about the character.  The other three were hard to rank, all of them introduced interesting plot threads, and I’m really looking forward to the continuations of those books.

This week I got a mystery box of 50 dc comics off of ebay.  They are all New 52 books.  I haven’t had a chance to sit down and read any of them yet but they cost less than $1 each. Looks like I got a small run of Swamp Thing so I might read those first.  I was sorta surprised the seller included a few #0 and #1 issues.
