    My 11.7.2012 DC Hard Copy Pull

    ACTION COMICS (Volume Two) #14
    Morrison has done very little wrong with this series in my not so humble eyes. I expect this to rock.

    ANIMAL MAN (Volume Two) #14
    This series has been superb. Rotworld is creepy, disturbing and thrilling.

    BATWING #14
    I didn't read #13. I haven't been too thrilled with this series.

    DETECTIVE COMICS (Volume Two) #14
    DCE needs to change the title to "DETECTIVE COMICS Starring The Penguin." He seems to be in every issue! I didn't read #13 yet. I do not like The Penguin. There, I posted it!

    DIAL H #6
    #1 stunk. #0 was terrific. I haven't read any other issues yet.

    EARTH 2 #6
    I don't know the general consensus regarding this series. I find this to be a superb comic.

    FAIREST #9
    #8 was awesome. Who knew Rapunzel could be so damn cool?

    G.I. COMBAT (Volume Three) #6
    I haven't started reading this series yet. Chances are, I never will.

    GREEN ARROW (Volume Six) #14
    I haven't started reading Ann Nocenti's run yet.

    GREEN LANTERN (Volume Four) #14
    I like Baz.

    JLA: EARTH 2
    If the cover for this edition is the Crime Syndicate with the JL reflected beneath them, then I'm picking it up. If not, I'll be skipping it.

    STORMWATCH (Volume Three) #14
    #13 was the first truly entertaining issue.

    SWAMP THING (Volume Five) #14
    Snyder's run is quickly moving up the charts and is closing in on Mark Millar and Nancy Collins' runs for me. I don't know if it will pass by them (Collins' run is my #1 Swampy run, followed closely by Millar's), but Snyder's work is brilliant. As redefining and distinctive as the afore mentioned runs.

    SWEET TOOTH #39
    I'm at least 20 issues behind.

    WORLDS' FINEST #6
    Helena Wayne meets Damian Wayne? This will be awesome.

    Notable Non-DC New Release
    PLANET OF THE APES: CATACLYSM #3
    Fantastic! The two preceding mini-series were awesome and so is this ongoing.

    Same Day Digital Comics
    ACTION COMICS (Volume Two) #14
    ANIMAL MAN (Volume Two) #14
    EARTH 2 #6
    FAIREST #9
    GREEN LANTERN (Volume Four) #14
    STORMWATCH (Volume Three) #14
    SWAMP THING (Volume Five) #14
    WORLDS' FINEST #6


    Expected Digital Back Issues
    CHECKMATE (Volume Two) #5 and #6

    HELLBLAZER #252 and #253
    The second and third chapters of Milligan's superb run.

    JSA #24

    LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (Volume Four) #36 and #37
    I posted my revised thoughts regarding this series yesterday on this thread.

    SUICIDE SQUAD (Volume One) #6

    WONDER WOMAN (Wonder Woman) #129 and #130
    The wind down of Byrne's spectacular run continues.

    Savage Hawkman, Phantom Stranger, The Dark Knight, and Ravagers are my favorites...

    The Culling is the best crossover event I've read in years.

    I'm just glad we can have A-list talent like Howard Mackie, Scott Lobdell, and Tom DeFalco writing big name books again.

    I haven't really liked this series, but like I said, I thought issue 13 was terrific, so maybe Morrison can end his run on a high note for me. Interesting to see it fill in the gap between the start of the series and modern day.

    ANIMAL MAN (Volume Two) #14
    This series has been superb. Rotworld is creepy, disturbing and thrilling.
    After 14 months now I'm ready for Rotworld to be over and see what happens next.

    BATWING #14
    I didn't read #13. I haven't been too thrilled with this series.
    I'e really enjoyed this series. I miss Oliver on the art, though. To is great, but he doesn't give it the same atmosphere.

    DETECTIVE COMICS (Volume Two) #14
    DCE needs to change the title to "DETECTIVE COMICS Starring The Penguin." He seems to be in every issue! I didn't read #13 yet. I do not like The Penguin. There, I posted it!
    I wasn't a fan of 13. It's about on par with Daniel's issues.

    DIAL H #6
    #1 stunk. #0 was terrific. I haven't read any other issues yet.
    I had high hopes for this series, but it really isn't very enjoyable.

    EARTH 2 #6
    I don't know the general consensus regarding this series. I find this to be a superb comic.
    I love this comic. I'm happy to see James Robinson get a chance to build a whole world.

    G.I. COMBAT (Volume Three) #6
    I haven't started reading this series yet. Chances are, I never will.
    I liked the art on War That Time Forgot, I liked the first chapter of Haunted Tank okay. Not a fan of the Unknown Soldier half though.

    GREEN ARROW (Volume Six) #14
    I haven't started reading Ann Nocenti's run yet.
    Nocenti's run hasn't been any good. Freddie Williams on art is a big step up though.

    GREEN LANTERN (Volume Four) #14
    I like Baz.
    Me too, even though it's apparently racist now to portray anyone who isn't a straight white male as having a criminal background, no matter the circumstances or how they grow and change.

    STORMWATCH (Volume Three) #14
    #13 was the first truly entertaining issue.
    I've enjoyed this book since Cornell left. I like what Milligan's doing with it. Interested in exploring Demon Knights/Stormwatch teams from throughout the ages.

    SWAMP THING (Volume Five) #14
    Snyder's run is quickly moving up the charts and is closing in on Mark Millar and Nancy Collins' runs for me. I don't know if it will pass by them (Collins' run is my #1 Swampy run, followed closely by Millar's), but Snyder's work is brilliant. As redefining and distinctive as the afore mentioned runs.
    It's a little too decompressed for my liking. I do like Swamp Thing's new design though.

    WORLDS' FINEST #6
    Helena Wayne meets Damian Wayne? This will be awesome.
    This is a fun comic with great art. People who think DC doesn't have enough "fun" books need to be reading this.

    A bit of feedback on this week's comics (which I read this morning):

    Aquaman #13 - Not a bad conclusion to The Others, but not that satisfying if I'm being completely honest. A bit abrupt and almost anti-climactic.

    Action Comics Annual - Not too bad, if a tad underwhelming. And it's very noticeable when Morrison ain't writing. The Sook art on the back-up was pretty neat, though.

    Batgirl Annual - Uggh. Good art in the first half, but Gail's dialogue was back to her excruciating worst (after a couple good issues of the monthly). And I really don't think she understands the Talons.

    JL Dark Annual - Pretty good conclusion to the Books of Magic storyline, just a shame it wasn't a clean finish and left us hanging for the next story (but I guess that's the intention, huh?).

    Swamp Thing Annual - Nice stuff. Naturally I miss Paquette's artwork and I'm certainly not much of a Cloonan fan, but she did okay. The writing and character work was the most enjoyable part, though.

    And it's not a DC book, but I thought Happy! #2 was actually the best book of the lot. Wonderful art from Robertson again.

    I'll post my legitimate feeling on the state of affairs soon. Generally I think DC's books are in a better place than they were before the reboot but in a lot of ways the company is still a hot mess.

    Did anyone else read Joe Kubert Presents? I really liked the Hawkman story. But then, it was by Joe Kubert whats not to like? Has Hawkman always been every animal or was that something new? I think I remember him talking to birds on occasion, but JKP was the first time I've seen him talk to all kinds of animanls.

    I haven't read it yet. I'm still a month behind, just starting the New 52 issue 13s. I will definitely get it though.

    In the "in tray" waiting to be read, along with about 60% of last week's haul. Looks gorgeous though.

    I didn't get any new DC books this week (first time in a long time that's happened), so I bought a back issue and read that instead. It was Saga of the Swamp Thing #1 from 1982. Gorgeous Tom Yeates artwork.
