Huh, no bought/thought yet. Well, got my comics today, might as well start one.o I only intended on picking up 3 of these as I was still undecided on if I am continuing Justice League or not. My wife did me a favor and picked them up though since I was warn out from work and JL was in my file, so I got it. So here we go: Justice League 12 - I so want to love this book. I like the cast, the creative team, and the future of the title sounds interesting, but each issue just sorta makes me shrug. I keep thinking, "I'm getting this because Trinity War sounds interesting" but I can only continue with that mindset for so long. Add that to the fact that Marvel's killing me with price overload and double-shipping I just can't aford to keep waiting for this to pick it up. Now we learned that there's another Johns JL title coming and it'll probably be closely related to this title so I feel obligated to check that one out too. So here I am now and I'm thinking, "since I have this next issue maybe it'll encourage me to keep going." Honestly, no. The characters were good, everything was fine, but it was just blah for me. Maybe it's the arc but I just don't care too much. I WANT it to get better but I think I'm about done with the waiting. I might give the next issue or two a try to see if the next arc sounds promising, but then this might be where it stops. I honestly think my frustrations at Marvel is what's making me want to keep this book more than the book itself. I want to support the competition. That really isn't enough though. There are other books, cheaper books, that I think I'd rather support. Green Lantern Annual 1 - It's funny. I jump all over Marvel for their pricing but when DC comes out with a $5 comic I don't mind as much. The reason is that most of their titles are $3 regularly so when a special comes out overpriced it doesn't feel like I've already been raped and will now be raped even more. The issue itself was pretty decent but not quite as good as previous issue of the title. It does its job in setting up the next big story, Rise of the Third Army. I found it interesting that more of the Guardians' race were hidden away with the "first lantern" and had been for a billion years... also that the Guardians were so willing to kill them all to get what they want. What *****ebags. I like Black Hand so his being fairly important to the event has my interest peaked. Hal's demise was expected due to last issue and the new lantern coming so no biggie there. Overall it was a decent issue. I'm excited to see what's coming though. I'm only buying the GL title and fortunately it seems that you only need to read the books you want and not all of the GL titles. I'm glad because the last thing I want is another crossover event. Wolverine & the X-Men 15 - This was a nice, quiet issue amidst the chaos of AvX. The Avengers hang out at the Jean Grey Academy while they work with Wolverine's X-Men to figure out how to finish all of this. While this is happening we get some nice moments between Iceman and Kitty, Gladiator and Kid Gladiator, Husk and Toad, and others. I like seeing Xavier hanging around the school and it's nice just seeing people being people. It felt like a good old fashioned issue of X-Men. Angel officially graduates from the school, which did little for me since he was sorta one of the originals. I know he isn't THAT Angel anymore but it's hard to separate the two. Broo is all kinds of awesome sauce in this issue. And I loved that it had Beast admiring a photograph of the original X-Men before they leave for the final conflict. Just a really good breather issue before it all goes down for the last time. The only downside was that I wasn't a big fan of the art. It wasn't bad by any means but I was hoping for Bradshaw. This was just sorta plain. Oh well, they can't all be winners. Uncanny X-Force 30 - I don't know... I just wasn't feeling this issue. I like Evan, I like members of this new Brotherhood, but I just didn't care about this issue. I think the art was a big part of it but I also think Remender just wasn't hitting his dialogue like he usually does. I'm wondering if he's too stretched at the moment, writing this alongside other new books and such. I don't know... it just didn't feel handled as well as it usually is. The ending was very interesting though with Evan learning that his parents weren't real. He was denying all the truths that Shadowking, Sabretooth, and Daken were showing him but I have a feeling that one will sting. So while this issue did little for me it shows promise of a really good future for this arc. Also, dead Fantomex hanging on the Brotherhood's rec room wall is just all kinds of creepy. Best and Worst of the Week Best: Wolverine & the X-Men - Easily. Old school feel, breather issue is always a win for me. The characters were all handled well and it was good seeing Xavier with his students. I just really hope he doesn't bite the big one to save Cyclops and the others. We'll see though. Worst: Justice League - As much as I wanted to like this, I really didn't care. It wasn't good, it wasn't bad, it was just there. I want to last to Trinity War but I doubt I will. At $4 an issue and needing to cut titles this will likely be the last issue I buy.
