Buy any DC comic books (or related stuff) recently?

Post by MajorHoy on Thu Jun 07, 2018 9:12 pm

Well, I started one for MARVEL, so it only seems fair to do one for DC Comics.

Went to a comic book store yesterday (first time since "Free Comic Book Day" last month) and picked up a few titles from DC:


* Action Comics Special #1
(the last Superman story written by Dan Jurgens now that Brian M. Bendis is taking over)


* Batgirl #23
(the last Batgirl story written by Hope Larson; Shawn Aldridge is suppose to be writing #24, then Mairghread Scott is suppose to be writing Barbara's adventures)


* Immortal Men #2
(only reason I'm buying the first few issues of this is to see about Ghost Fist)



* Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #38
(Sholly Fisch's writing is always fun!)


and I got the free issue of

* DC Nation #1
(no actual comic book stories; just a promo mag on various DC comics)

This one (or two, I think) I got on Comixology for .99, and I look forward to reading it. (Yes, I know it violates my rule)...

I will know. Well, and YOU, since I told people here...

I'd make a terrible spy.

Needed to get more sunflower seed for the birds & other critters, so I also stopped at the comic book shop. Only titles I got from DC were:

* Batman: Prelude to the Wedding - Batgirl vs. Riddler
(only because it did feature Batgirl; I'm skipping the ones with Nightwing, Robin (Damian), and Red Hood)


* Immortal Men #3
(the cover worries me as to how bad this issue could be)


Shocked

I did look over Hawkman #1 (there were two copies with the variant cover left), but I'm still on the fence.
Maybe I'll just wait for the tpb collection to come out and decide then.

I'm liking Hawkman, so far. Couldn't get into Immortal Men. I did like that Batgirl/Riddler issue, but I don't like how Riddler was drawn. He's always been slim and dapper, whereas here he looks more like Bill Sykes from Oliver Twist. Riddler is not a musclebound thug!

. . . Couldn't get into Immortal Men.!
I'm probably going to be dropping it shortly. It really does read like a mediocre-to-bad Image comic from the early-1990s.
(Not quite Rob Liefeld-"writing" bad, but . . . )

I really was only buying it to see if/how much they'd have on GhostFist (because the idea of a hero in Harlem originally in the 1920s sounded intriguing).

I read the first couple because I, perhaps rather stupidly, assumed it would deal with the DCU's already established immortals, like Vandal Savage and Uncle Sam (who were briefly seen in Dark Knights: Metal, and whom I have an interest in). I don't really care about this new lot, so it's failed to grip me.

Well, it ties in to a different old DC character:

I know. I just never found him that interesting.
Or at all interesting, really.

She was probably a bit closer to a mermaid, but without the tail and with the ability to survive on land as well.

You would prefer that her power consist of maybe green flames shooting out of her nose?

Stopped at the comic book shop today (after buying more sunflower & bird seed elsewhere again) and got:

* Batgirl #24


* Immortal Men #4




* Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #39
and
* Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #40

Plus I bought a couple of books from Dark Horse and one from Dynamite.
(I also looked over Catwoman #1, but might just wait for a tpb collection on that.)

We've just read Mera #6, Aquaman #38, Flash #51, Terrifics #6, Barbarella #8, Detective Comics #985, Action Comics #1001, Wonder Woman and, in my case, Doomsday Clock #6 (Lucy is boycotting it in solidarity with Alan Moore).

I'm also boycotting Terrifics because I don't like it.

And we read Justice League Dark as well. We thought it was very good.

By the way, Barbarella is Dynamite, not DC, isn't it?
