I like (even love some) of what Marvel is putting out these days. But Civil War II was overblown crap imo. Went on way to long, made me hate characters I usually love. So glad it's done!

I'm really loving Justice League vs Suicide Squad. That scene where Waller tells them they'll have to protect her and they all burst out laughing was awesome :P

I am enjoying reading Green Arrow: Year One ATM. It has been a good while since I last read it.

That's the one by Diggle right? I have it but haven't read it yet.

Ra's really stepped up his game in his two specials. Birth and Son of the Demon. Those stories really estabablished his place in the Batman mythos.
I can't remember his first appearance fully, but he did manage to kidnap Robin, figure out Bruce is Bats and get entrance to the batcave.

I agree. I am hoping to re-read Birth, Son and Bride of the Demon soon.

I've got a lot of GA reading to get to. I still haven't finished Lemire's run.

Lemire's run is great. Definitely one of the better stuff from New 52.

GA: Year One is a decent read. Grell's run is on my backlog; I've only read Longbow Hunters so far.

GA when good, is great. When it's not good, it's merely boring. I love Ollie as the left wing SJW. Too bad they downplay that aspect on Arrow.

Batarrow has other things to focus on .

Kevin Smith, Brad Meltzer, and Judd Winnick all had some nice runs on Green Arrow. Mike Grell's Longbow Hunters is still some of the best GA.

I've got a question for all...

Does anyone have a trade reading order for Batman all the way up to the end of the New 52? Just want to know to make sure they are in the correct reading order on my shelf.

Agree with this. When Ollie is written right, it can make for some good reading.

Maybe one of these can help.

I finished re-reading Green Arrow: Year One. It was enjoyable, but not as good as the last time I read it. I would give it a 7.5 out of 10. I wouldn't mind seeing a straight animated adaption of it, as it could be quite good. I also think the story has potential to be made into a live-action adaption, with there being changes and additions made of course.

Regarding Green Arrow, I bought the 4 issue mini-series (from 1983) on Comixology a while back and really liked it. I would love to get my hands on a physical copy of that because the art is really nice.

Marvel will stop giving free digital copies of same purchased books...
http://www.cbr.com/marvel-revises-di...igital-comics/

Instead, you get codes for some selected #1s of previously released books.

I doubt many will be happy about that. Do you normally get the digital copy of the comics you buy Geetard?

With Marvel comics, I usually sell the digital code for a buck so that the physical books would cost me about the same as most DC and Image books.

I'm not a huge digital comics reader/buyer because of DRM like Comixology (used to buy DC digital first series like Bombshells and LoWW). I know DC/Vertigo prices their digital books the same as their physical ones so I don't see much point in buying in both formats. I do buy some digital trades when they go on sale but only for series I love like Gotham Central, Preacher...

With Image, I have a decent collection of DRM-free issues through Humble Bundle sales.

Francesco Francavilla might be the best artist in comics today.

How many of you are familiar with the fact he pitched to DC an Batman Elseworlds which set the Batman mythos in 1972? Check out his art for it...

I like the art. I'm not sold on the aesthetic.
