I read a ton of comics, so I decided to talk about them as well.

Last Month In Comics – April 2016 pt. 2

So last month, I was not able to review all of my April pull list because of personal issues. Thankfully, this month I got all of my comics, and am now able to play catch up.

I will more than likely be doing a big round up post for the May installment of “This Month In Comics”, but that won’t be until sometime after next Wednesday. I don’t like the idea of these posts being so close together.

April saw the end of a few arcs, and even one series, as well as a writer change for a title that is somehow managing to survive the reboot. With DC Rebirth right around the corner, I expect a few places on my pull list will be emptying out in order to accommodate some new additions. While I don’t agree with the ending of some of these books, I’m optimistic about beginning the newer ones.

Last Month in Comics – April 2016

I guess I should begin this one by saying that this is actually not all of my April comics. I’m pretty sure that I’m missing a few of my subscriptions, but I’m just going to take the hit for the moment simply because that’s how my life is right now.

By the time this goes up it should be the 8th of May, so I hope that everyone has a great Mother’s Day.

This Week In Comics – April 11, 2016

In an effort to shorten my monthly round up of comics on my pull list, I have decided to try to do some weekly installments when I can. It means shorter posts, but at least they’ll be timely.

These comics were all released on Wednesday, April 6th, so I think I’m still well within my right to title this post This Week in Comics, instead of Last Week.

Last Month in Comics – March 2016

 

By this point, all of these comics have been reviewed by other people. Who cares, though? You can never have too many reviews of things.

#FridayReads – Injustice: Gods Among Us, Vol. 1

I’ve been wanting to read this comic ever since I played the video game for two seconds. The funny thing is, I never really got the gist of it from the game because I’d never actually seen it in story mode. Every time I played it, it was against one of my friends. And then, when I finally decided to read the comic, no store ever had Volume 1.

I don’t even remember how I got a hold of the copy that I have now. I’m pretty sure there was a sale involved, and my comic book store might have been hyping up some random comic book event, but I was just too happy to finally get my hands on Volume 1 that I just did not care.

#FridayReads – Post #100

Originally, I had intended to have something spectacular planned for my 100th post, but I never actually got around to writing whatever that spectacular thing was supposed to be. It’s weird; it doesn’t feel like I’ve written one hundred posts, but I’ve got ninety-nine published already and this one will be next.

Before I go forward, I just want to thank everyone who has bothered to subscribe to my blog. For whatever reason, you’ve found my blog entertaining enough to keep up with. For that I thank you, and I promise to try to get a little bit more creative with these posts. Thanks for reading.

Okay, now that that’s been said, let’s talk about the three books I’ve read (or finished reading) this week:

Teen Titans (2011 [Vol. IV]) Vol. 2 – The Culling

I just want to preface this by saying that I skipped a Top 5 Wednesday post to write this, and it will not count as my Friday Read. There are problems with this book, so I won’t be recommending it without the other volumes. Therefore we’ll call this post a review.

So last week I read the first volume of the 2011 Teen Titans run because I have been a fan of this group since I was a teenager myself. Whether they call themselves Teen Titans, grown-up Titans, or Young Justice, you can bet I’ll be somewhere rooting them on. I like team books because they allow you to focus on more than one person. Like, I get bored with solo books because focusing on one character can get boring really quickly. However, you will never hear me complain too much about We Are Robin, simply because I have something like five Robins to read about at any given time.

This Month In Comics – February 2016

 

Happy Leap Day, all!!!

I am so excited to be at the end of February – and at the end of my 100% fulfilled posting schedule – back with a full lineup of comics from my pull list to review. This month treated me to two new ongoing series, as well as a newish series from a publisher I had never bothered with before. I must say that I was very much satisfied with just about all of the new stories.

Usually, I like to post each review with the particular comic book cover that I have at home, but most of my issues from DC were Neal Adams variants, and those were particularly hard to find. So most of the DC series will be posted with the main cover, however I’ve somehow managed to obtain my first ever non-variant Archie Comics cover since the New Riverdale ‘verse began.

In any case, thank you all for once again joining me in my review of my pull list. Let us begin.

#FridayReads -Teen Titans (2011 [Vol. IV]), Vol. 1: It’s Our Right To Fight

You know, except for  not reading The Casual Vacancy – and not writing this post on the correct day – I’m on track to hitting most of my February goals. I believe that’s what you would call progress.

You gotta appreciate the small things.

Considering that I started this on a Friday, I’d like to contribute my review of volume 1 of Scott Lobdell’s run of Teen Titans to the Friday Reads tag. In the New 52 iteration of my favorite teenaged superhero crew, we follow Red Robin as he tries to stop the nefarious organization, N.O.W.H.E.R.E., from kidnapping and experimenting on teenaged metahumans. Along the way, Red Robin builds a team that consists of old favorites like Kid Flash, Superboy, and Wonder Girl, as well as newcomers Bunker, Skritter, and Solstice. As far as Teen Titans lineups go, this one is definitely worth your curiosity.
