It's been such a long time since I've thoroughly enjoyed a DC series like I have with this. It's so good :cry:

Oh man. You're in for a treat. Have a box of tissues ready. :)

I don´t get what people like about Injustice. To me its one of the worst Dc comics that have come out recently :oldyella:

And yet it's far better than most of the utter crap that has spewed out of the New52

I disagree. The art is among the worst I´ve seen in the New 52. The story is quite simple and it makes a lot of characters look like assholes...or idiots for following and encouraging this monstrous parody of Superman.

Almost every issue I feel like

...or this...




... and want to do that to Dc.



Its like being a Hank Pym/Janet Van Dyne fan and reading Mark Millars Ultimates for the first time.

Oh lord, that's like smooth versions of Rob Liefeld drawings. Holy crap that's bad. But in a hilarious way.

Started to read Transmetropolitan... don´t ask me why I waited so long with this. Probably should have started right after the Authority and Planetary.

Also want to read the League of Extraordinary Gentleman Volumes I haven´t got, yet. Alan Moore deserves a lot of respect for managing to create a world that can contain both Cthulhu and Puss in Boots.

Still have to finish reading V for Vendetta. Why did I stop in the middle of the story and began to reread Watchmen? I have no idea. Anyway, Rebirth triggered a renewed interest in Alan Moore stuff in me. Might seek out his run on Swamp Thing next.

Currently re-reading Gail Simone's entire Secret Six run, so that I'm all caught up when I start on the new one. I probably don't need to, but I'll take any excuse to read it again. One of my all-time favourites! :adam:

Started reading the Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 9 comics.
I was really surprised about them, not in a good way.

The Art is really weird and the characters barely resemble the tv show characters.
The Writing is wonky at times and the storys get really goofy at times.
Spike is pretty much the best thing so far, he is very well drawn and seems to have a interesting story going.

It makes me appreciate the season 10 comics more...they have such a good art and the storylines are really enjoyable...that is what i will re-read next.

Somehow im quite "obsessed" currently with good old Buffy universe, im about to order some of the mini series next and the funko figures.

Finally got round to reading trinity war and forever evil. I gotta say I thought it was good.

Although
Spoiler: show
the justice league of America part of the forever evil story was poor. The firestorm prison felt a bit weak in my opinion


Probably going to read the rest of the new 52 justice league
The Cal-man1 will return .......

Finally finished reading Secret Six yesterday. I could almost reread everything again, starting with when they met in Villains United.

... and now I finally read the last volume of Gotham Central, too. Maybe Doom Patrol will be next?
