This Week's Comics- First Impressions

This week had some very interesting new comic books, so I thought I would do a one to two sentence take of a pile and try and come back this weekend and be more indepth. Here we go!

Wonder Woman #15- My favorite part is the "back story" of the Amazons that is developing. So far, so good.

Green Arrow Black Canary #3- Yay! I got the variant cover! Crap, somebody looks unwell.

Green Lantern #25- Now this is what I am talking about, People. Loved it.

Tales of the Sinestro Corps: Ion #1- The torch is passed, literally. Marz does his swan song and we get a sense of direction for Kyle.

Green Lantern Corps #19- This is a book to watch. Guy and Kyle are meshing well and I am looking forward to the future.

Black Adam #5 (of 6)- One of the most compelling books I am reading. I am mesmerized.

Wonder Girl #4 (of 6)- I spent most of my time trying to figure out how this mini-series fits into the big picture. Loving Torres' scripting.

Countdown Arena #2 (of 4)- This issue was better then the first one, but that isn't saying much. I am hoping for a big payoff.

X-Factor #26- Damn. I hate crossovers, but adore Layla. Torn.

Booster Gold #5- I really appreciated this book. Fans of Barbara Gordon need to pick this up.

Nightwing #139- Some of the best dialogue between Tim and Dick that I have seen in a long time. I am really enjoying the Ra's Al Ghul storyline.

Fables #68- This book is a winner. Quality story telling and great art.

Ultimate Iron Man II #1 (of 4)- My guilty pleasure. I had a good time reading this.

That is it so far. I haven't gotten any further in my reading, and am hoping to get a second read in tomorrow or Saturday. This week's comics are restoring my faith in humanity for some weird reason.

Aren't comics great? Today, faith in humanity. Tomorrow, the world!
As always, enjoyed the excellent short and sweet reviews.

Sorry, my deletion- was logged into my other account! Thx for reminding me about BG and the Babs story- I'm not reading the series so I'll have to pick this one up.

Happy Holidays!

Green Lantern #25....worth every damn cent of the 4 buck cover price.

Eaglewing, it was definitely the medicine I needed to get over the holiday blues! I have read a bit more but not much, unfortunately. I am STILL trying to finish my cards! Yikes.

Thank you for the kind words, Sir. As always, you are a gentleman!

Redhead- I would definitely recommend this issue to you. It has such a resonance for us Babs fans. I got a bit misty!!

Nick, you said it, Buddy. BTW, I read your review and you said a mouthful!! Nicely done.
