the read pile - 8/28/08


DC UNIVERSE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT - I'm excited about this. I am a Meltzer fan. Not sure I totally understand the cover. Who is superman sharing a face with?


BLUE BEETLE #30 - I like this border opatrol story, it fits his characer and it can really go places.

REIGN IN HELL #2(OF 8) - If this issue sucks I'm dropping it. 

WOLVERINE #68 - This book is great, I think it'll be a classic.



SKAAR SON OF HULK #3 - This is working for me.

FAMILY DYNAMIC #1(OF 3) - I'll give it a chance, is this original?

IMMORTAL IRON FIST #18 - Uh-oh. I don't like the look of that cover.



X-MEN LEGACY #215 - This book always ends strong and doesn't deliver, I'm going to drop it and save money.

FINAL CRISIS ROGUES REVENGE #2(OF 3) - I like this book but the plot to this. Making Inertia the new Kid Flash, and Johns's Legion of Three Worlds redeeming Superboy prime. It feels like Johns is recycling Ideas a bit. 

FINAL CRISIS SUPERMAN BEYOND #1(OF 2)-Not sure what to expect out of a two issue mini.


STAR TREK YEAR FOUR ENTERPRISE EXPERIMENT #5 - Great book, strong art, good writing, and the story feels dense and rich.

JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #18 - Johns you are all over this week.

WOLVERINE FIRST CLASS #6 - Love this cover.



NEW AVENGERS #44 - Secret Invasion sucks. This issue promises some big reveal. I predict it'll be lame.

KICK ASS #4 - It seems like this book never comes out. Is it shipping late or on a bi-monthly schedule?


MIGHTY AVENGERS #17 -  Meh.

SUPERMAN #679 - Robinson isn't doing to bad.

TEEN TITANS#62 - Finally lets build up some of these new characters please.



TRINITY #13 - I love this book. Is it going to go a full year?

Superman Beyond supposedly comes with 3-D glasses.

if it's 3-d why not 3 issues. if its not two face related i don't see the point of a 2 issue mini.

Haha, now that you mention it, 3 issues would have made more sense. I guess it was too much for a one-shot, too little for three. If they can tell a good story in two then I figure why not? At least you aren't paying for another comic they didn't feel was necessary to tell the story.
