What I Read This Week
This is a special "ES" edition this week, as in "Extra Short." My wife and I are packing up our two month old son for a visit with his family in Florida followed by his family in New York, so I am going to be scarce around these parts.
Aliens #2 -- More mysteries, more aliens, and everything ties back to the prologue from the previous issue. Interesting stuff.
Green Lantern #44 -- Barry Allen and Hal Jordan battle a zombified Martian Manhunter. I don't think I need to say more than that.
Outsiders #20 -- The first arc ends explosively -- literally -- as the four major players all come crashing into one another. Should be interesting to see where things go from here, but this title is strong.
Tiny Titans #18 -- Featuring 100% of your daily recommended dose of Blackest Night jokes, plus Darkseid as a janitor and Man-Bat in detention.
Wednesday Comics #3 -- Hawkman improves again, as we are introduced proper to the villains of the piece, plus more excitement from Kamadi, Rock, Strange, Deadman, and the others. Wonder Woman still a big muddled though.
Guardians of the Galaxy #16 -- Guardians old and new meet as reality itself collapses in a future even more dystopian than the one they old Guardians used to run around in. Funky art helps this fun story.
Nova #27 -- Its Nova to the rescue in the Ceded Territories, as
whats left of the Corps goes after Strontian in order to save Robbie Rider. I'm a sucker for any comic which features Blastaar, this one included.
Futurama Comics #44 -- Its the Fry And The Furious as Fry finds himself in a crazy intergalactic race!
The Pick Of The Pile is Green Lantern, although again this was a strong week.
So what did YOU read this week?
