Alex + Ada #4, Batwoman #28, New Warriors #1 & Wonder Woman #28
Every month is starting to look the same as far as my weekly comic picks go… And I think this says a lot about the shitty state of the stale comic book industry. I buy and read new comics all the time… I’m just usually not impressed with what I get.
That’s how things usually shake out. It is what it is, ya know?
One book that’s a “must read” for me every month: Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn’s Alex + Ada. I’ve enjoyed every issue so far and that probably won’t be changing any time soon. The comic is different, fun, interesting– and, at times, a little depressing.
I stopped buying Batwoman last year when DC decided to show J.H. Williams III the door over “creative differences”… So I have no idea how the book has fared during the last 6 months or so. But I am curious to see if it has stayed the course or devolved into yet another crappy New 52 comic. I’m guessing the latter, but I’ll have to wait and see until tomorrow…
Don’t ask me why I am at all interested in giving New Warriors #1 (written by Chris Yost) a shot this week. I really have no idea. Maybe it’s because I bought every issue of Speedball’s original short-lived series and/or I somewhat enjoyed the issues of Superior Spider-Man Team-Up written by Yost and/or I just like throwing money away. I guess I should just review it this week to let you know my final answer.
I’m also picking up Wonder Woman #28— because I’ve purchased every issue since the first issue of Greg Rucka’s run. I’m not about to stop now.
