What current comic books do you normally buy / read?

Post by MajorHoy on Sat Sep 06, 2014 12:56 am

Not sure if we have one of these (if we do, my apologies . . . point me in the right direction and I'll move my list there), but what new / current comic books are people normally buying these days?

For me (over here in the US), it's

DC:
* Batman ’66 Meets Green Hornet
* Batman Eternal
* Constantine
* Detective Comics
* Justice League Dark
* Wonder Woman
and a few others that either were cancelled, I recently dropped, or I'm still debating about


Marvel:
* All-New Invaders

plus several from Dark Horse, IDW, and Titan that I'm just recently trying and deciding on for the long-term or not.

Yes, it did.
But there is SUPERBOY: FUTURES END #1 for September (the New 52's annual gimmick month).

My pull list has shrunk considerably since this topic was started, mostly due to lack of funds, but I'm still very dedicated to 2000 AD, the Megazine and Doctor Who Magazine, and quite addicted to Titan's line of Doctor Who titles. Also still reading Ms Marvel, Daredevil and the relaunched Thunderbolts. Sadly, Miracleman has seemingly vanished into limbo again...

Yeah, I was thinking about that over the weekend. Not sure what happened there.


My pull-list has dropped a LOT in the last year or so. Not much has really been keeping my interest. Too much of it reads like I've seen it before. But, there are still things that come out of nowhere to be fun.

I just looked back at my original (2014) post from this thread, and . . . I no longer am buying any of those titles! Shocked

I'm still figuring out what books I'll continue to buy on a regular basis these days (aside from Scooby-Doo! Team-Up from DC), but there also a few titles I buy from other publishers that aren't regular, on-going series.

Of the list I posted in 2014, the only American titles I'm still reading are Red Sonja and Dejah Thoris. Most of the others are no longer around, and I'm not buying any Marvel titles regularly anyway. But I have started picking up DC again, and a couple of new independents...

From my original list,
- - DC:
* Batman ’66 Meets Green Hornet - finished run
* Batman Eternal - finished run
* Constantine - finished that run; did not buy later runs
* Detective Comics - dropped, but depending on who takes it over in the future, . . .
* Justice League Dark - was dropped by DC a while back, but will start a new run in the near future (which I don't currently plan to buy, even with Doctor Fate as a member)
* Wonder Woman - dropped after the Azzarello/Chiang run ended, then bought it again for the Greg Rucka run during Rebirth. Dropped it (again) after James Robinson's first arc starring Jason (with guest appearances by Diana).

- - Marvel:
* All-New Invaders - they stopped publishing that in 2015 Crying or Very sad

Actually, the new Hellblazer is pretty good, I think.

Aaaaaaaand, it looks like Johnny (well, at least his series) may not have much time left anyway.

Issue #24 (due out July 25th) is the last one DC has solicited at present.
(And they've already released solicitations for August.)


THE HELLBLAZER #24
U.S. Price: $3.99
On Sale 7/25
Spoiler:
What would you sacrifice to save someone from damnation? The final chapter of “The Good Old Days” puts what may be the final nail in John Constantine’s coffin: preparing to say goodbye to this mortal coil, John’s oddly introspective, brooding over an ex-lover who’s possessed by demons. Since she can’t be exorcised, she’s bound for Hell—unless John makes the ultimate sacrifice and takes her place. Pack light, John—we hear it’s warm where you’re going.
Art by: Davide Fabbri
Cover by: Tim Seeley
Variant cover by: Sean Phillips
Written by: Tim Seeley

Maybe they're skipping a month (or two) for this title, but who knows?

Well, I can't see John being away from the comics for long since it looks as though the character is to become at least a semi-regular on the Legends of Tomorrow TV show. And Titans recently went on hiatus for a few months before returning with a new creative team, so...

Or they may wind up using him in Justice League Dark?


JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #1
U.S. Price: $3.99
On Sale 7/25
From the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE! Earth’s magic once belonged to them. Now they want the magic back. But who exactly are they? It’s up to the new Justice League Dark to find out and stop this nightmarish new threat at all costs! After the events of NO JUSTICE, team leader Wonder Woman guides the misfit magic mix of Zatanna, Swamp Thing, Man-Bat and Detective Chimp against enemies too fantastic even for the Justice League. Plus, what awful things are coming through the Tree of Wonder? Dark days ahead...
