Anyway, I had to get two weeks’ worth of comics the last time I went to the shop. Here they are in alphabetical order:
Batman and Robin #9
Green Lantern #9
Green Lantern Corps. #9
Justice League #9
Red Hood and the Outlaws #9
Wonder Woman #9
I enjoyed all of them. The Night of the Owls crossover is working remarkably well, with each tie-in working to supplement the overall narrative in Batman. Scott Snyder really has come up with a fascinating and enjoyable story, and the other authors’ work with it has been great as well.
The stand out issue for me this week is Green Lantern Corps. The story in that book has been focusing on Guy Gardner and John Stewart—my favorite of the Earth Green Lanterns. John’s been going through some heavy stuff ever since, well, as far back as I can remember; but now his actions and hard decisions are coming back to haunt him in an interesting way. What I really liked about this issue was the art, specifically John’s facial expressions, which manage to convey emotion and communicate to the reader exactly what needs to be said with or without the text. It’s a great read, especially if you’re a fan of the main Green Lantern title.
Oh, and if you want to read something that isn’t a superhero comic, Saga is a great, great new book. It reminds me do much of a Final Fantasy game. It introduces you to a new world, new people, and everything that comes with it. It’s wonderful—simply wonderful.
