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:

Buy any DC comic books (or related stuff) recently? 325?cb=20180501225451
* 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)...

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:
Buy any DC comic books (or related stuff) recently? C9eed3ec66f60061c2816031eeb32f78_xl
* 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)

Buy any DC comic books (or related stuff) recently? 2c5f4bf54c3cb0d7fd535f2dc54848c0_xl
* 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!

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.

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

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

I would say "I wish", but there's also that part of me who wonders/is afraid of who DC would get to write a JSA series these days.

I'm not reading it (for various {EXPLETIVE DELETED} reasons), but from what I've heard it supposedly explained how the JSA was removed from continuity without showing why we had Jay apparently trapped in the Speed Force (as seen in last year's "The Button" Batman/Flash crossover) nor have I heard if there was an explanation why Johnny Thunder still remembers what he has been shown to remember.

Didn't read the issue just yet, but hoping that part is just a temporary phase.

Then again, at the beginning of the New52, they retconned her original first outfit (pre-TKJ) to look like:

Didn't read the issue just yet, but hoping that part is just a temporary phase.

Then again, at the beginning of the New52, they retconned her original first outfit (pre-TKJ) to look like:

Thankfully, I never saw any of that.

By the way, here's what the variant cover on Batgirl #28 is suppose to look like:

While I'm not quite sold on the face (looks more like a Nancy Drew type?), I feel like the mask/bat-ears part doesn't look as questionable. (Though I'd still rather have the full cowl back).

I'm guessing part of that was because she seemed closer to Dick's age in Batman The Animated Series than she had been in the comic books, making that the more "iconic" interpretation (as opposed to the original age difference back in the comic book stories starting in the late 1960s).

As for "sexy" . . . well, Babs was never as seductively sexy as your typical Catwoman was! (Selina was always a "naughty sexy"! Twisted Evil )

Is the animated series really that well remembered? It was over twenty years ago...

I think that, in general, more people saw that than those who would have been familiar with comic books. Besides, many of those people who watched the animated series back in the day (or later in reruns) are maybe in their 30s or so now? What percentage of the current comic book buying audience may have been first exposed to Barbara as Batgirl through the animated series?

Hmm, fair point, I guess. I never really took much notice of it, myself.

Here in the U.S., Batman: The Animated Series was a popular afternoon (afterschool) cartoon/animated series. And don't forget a few characters that originated on the series (such as Harley Quinn and Renee Montoya) later became regulars (or at least semi-regulars) in the expanded comic book cast of characters.
Not sure how much of an impact / how often it was shown on the telly across the pond, so that may make a difference in how you perceived it.

I know it was shown over here for awhile, but the only times I can remember catching it were when it was on at about midnight...

It is very well regarded here. A complete Bluray run is coming soon, and I think there's a fair bit of excitement.

The thing about the Brave & the Bold animated series was that it could be more overly tongue-in-cheek at times (granted, I didn't see every episode, but that was the overall impression I got from what I did see).
Batman: The Animated Series wasn't GrimDark, but it had a very noirish/Fleischer-Superman-animated feel to it that was a bit more serious but not totally without any humor.

I agree, but that noirish feel generally does little for me when it comes to animation, I prefer the lighter touch.

Hi there, just wanted to let you know my latest Dc Comics comic books ordered last month from Previews:

- SUPERMAN 100 PAGE SPECTACULAR #1  do you remember the Superman Confidential series? These are the Claudio Castellini (Silver Surfer, Nathan Never) drawn issues, unpublished at time due to series being axed!  Cool

- Detective Comics # 997: as we are approaching Dc # 1000 I wanted read the forthcoming issues of this title;

- GREEN LANTERN #3 with Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp you can't be wrong, can't you?  drunken

- HAWKMAN #8 I will supposedly like these space opera issues;

- HEROES IN CRISIS #4 (OF 9) VAR ED
- HEROES IN CRISIS #5 (OF 9) VAR ED Yes, I have been ordering/following these crossover, but do they really plan to kill the character of the similar (to mine) name here?  Mad

- JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSEY #5 drawn by Italian great artist Carmine di Giandomenico, formerly on Flash;

- PEARL #6 (MR) first regular issue of this formerly mini-series of the "Bendis Universe", let's see how it works..

cheers! cheers
