Just a quick question for everyone:

Batman: Tony Daniel vs Scott Snyder, who do you recommend? I'm really torn on this because I either want to read Batman or Detective Comics. I really like Tony Daniel (who is doing Detective Comics now) but I've heard a lot of good things about Scott Snyder. So I was wondering which one does everyone recommend?

Detective Comics has been fantastic. Since Dick and Gordon do detective work. And the art is

Th Confused Help a fellow out?

Hello everybody I'm in need of a little help. In the past I collected for about two and a half years on basically Marvel titles associated with X-men and Avengers, I stopped due to financial reasons but am now looking to star up again. Now my predicament lies in the fact I haven't had any association in anything comics in about 3 years and need help picking some good titles to start off with maybe relaunches happening soon?

Also really want to start getting more into DC and other titles not associated with marvel too try and broaden my horizons. The budget for books i'm working with is about $80 a month and also any help on a delivery service will also be appreciated since my local shop sadly closed down a year ago. Thanks in advance too everyone who can help.

Everybody I've asked says Snyder. Daniel is a decent artist, but sucks as a writer.

Well, I would tell you to go for Superman Red Son, but it is an alternative story. It is great. And I would say that the Rucka's run as mentioned by Anubis, was great. The whole arc against Ruin, was ... amazing. Really really cool stuff.
Superman/Batman "Torment" was actually very good. But it is my opinion. I have never heard anything about it.

Kang if you want a great Superman side story go for Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns. While certainly more Batman focused, Clark's time on page is simply amazing.

Also give Superman: Secret Identity a try.

I can't find my Daniel reviews, but I've read a ton of Snyder and he never lets me down. There's a review I wrote below of Snyder on Batman. Hope it gives context. Daniel wasn't too shabby writing, but he's no Snyder and Daniel's books suffer horrific delays.

As a big fan of Paul Cornell, I've found myself really anticipating his upcoming Stormwatch. Reading up on some of the characters that will be featured, Jack Hawksmoor sounds particularly intriguing. However, I'm ashasmed to say I've never read any of Stormwatch or The Authority, so I've never got to see him in action. Are there any particular arcs (preferably collected in graphic novel format) that serve as a good showcase for Hawkmoor's character, powers and personality?

Jenny Sparks: The Secret History of the Authority gives you his origin story. Pretty much all of Authority is great Hawksmore action seeing as he leads the team eventually.

If I was to pick 1 and only 1 Jack Kirby Fourth World related book, which do you recommend? I really want to know more about those characters he created, but stuff like Final Crisis makes it hard for me to want to just grab ANY Fourth World related book.

Well I would recommend the Fourth World omnibuses. The hardcovers seemed to be out of print but softcovers will be coming in December. Aside from Kirby the only other two writers that I thought did a good job with the New Gods were Simonson and Morrison. With Simonson there is the Orion run which is sadly not collected. With Morrison there Final Crisis, Rock of Ages, and Seven Soldiers of Victory more specifically the Mr. Miracle mini. If you're only getting one I guess I would go with the original and wait until December.

Ye im getting the softcovers since the hardcovers are impossible to get, but why exactly is the 2nd omnibus so expensive? What happens in that?

Not sure why it's so expensive but it does have The Glory Boat which was one of the best issues of the original New Gods.

I believe you've heard about the big reboot news, although many people are extremely skeptical abt this reboot, i'd say its a good place to start especially since you haven't been in line with the continuity, why don't you go to the DC website and decide which one of the series you are interested in and buy them this september, you can definitely subscribe to these issues online at websites like comixology. Go check it out perhaps you might be interested in some of the new #1.
Action comics, Green Lantern and Justice League are a must for me, together with several other titles.

When this relaunch hits, I'm thinking about jumping on to the Flash and Aquaman titles. I wanted to know what were some of their best stories that I should check out?

The Death of a Prince TPB for Aquaman just recently came out. The Bronze Age for Aquaman (70s to 80s) was some of his best stuff (aka when DC had a single and clear direction for him and has some good stuff you can appreciate if you keep in mind the tone of the Bronze Age; then there is his single most important story that involves the death of his 5 year old son that is the main thing of that TPB). Other Aquaman stuff you could check out is the 2003 series (though if you do not like a fantasy/magic-y type of feel the first 12/13 issues you could ignore though ti is how he gets his waterhand and that little journey there). Reason I make that mention is that some people did not like Vietch's Waterbearer stuff which is also collected in TPB I believe. But everyone enjoys the Sub Diego stuff from then on with the 2003 series. Some other good Aqua-centered stuff is JLA: Obsidian Age Books 1 & 2. PAD's run of the 1994 Aquaman series could be something you could enjoy he did issues 1-46 I believe and then you can ignore Larsen if you'd like and check out the last issues of the run when Jurgens took over. Not sure when that starts though maybe around 60ish?

At my comic hop today, i found the three issue Hawkworld mini-series and so far, I love it. I wanna read more Hawkman. According to Amazon, in January DC is releasing an omnibus of the Geof Johns run. Is this worth grabbing when it comes out? And are there any other good Hawkman books out there?

Johns' run on Hawkman was pretty good. He finally made sense of the Hawkman mythos and combined everything. And now they're throwing it all out again and starting over.


But yeah, it's pretty good.

As far as more good Hawkman stuff, you'd have to look at JSA.
