Batman #12 was good. Not a lot happening to move the main plot forwards but a good character piece with some great action storytelling from the art team too.

Walking Dead #161 nipped along at a speedy pace. The new panel layout Charlie Arland is using for this arc really keeps things fast paced (which is exactly what the book has been needing - a proverbial boot up the arse).

Providence #11

Give it all the Eisners.

Just Providence for me too.

Justice League #10 and Superman #12 for me. Maybe Motor Crush #1 (I think that came out this week) if I like the preview.

Yeah, it did. I nabbed it but I don’t think I’m in the right mood to read it. Maybe later on tonight, or even tomorrow. I’ll post here once I do in any case.


Yeah Batman #12 was the best of the latest run so far. I like it when King shows off a bit.

Batman #12 was pretty impressive. I want to do another run through it right away to look at the art a bit more deeply.

Superman #12 was raucous fun. The end felt a bit quick/blunt, but great arc kickoff.

Doctor Aphra #1? Loved it. the best bit was the front end, which kind of upended the “Bad Indiana Jones” vibe of the character with a reversal homage to Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Justice League #10 was the best issue of the run so far. Looking forward to the fight to come.


I’m still stunned by Providence even this morning.

I’m way behind but I’m hearing the latest issue was insane.

It is possibly the perfect climax to Moore’s entire Lovecraft saga at Avatar Press.

And I say that as someone who thinks that Neonomicon was complete garbage.

I didn’t have time to have a look at it last night, so I can’t wait to finally read it later.

It’s very much like From Hell in a way.

Not that Burrows is a Campbell…but he shocks with how well he holds his own.

I’m still loving this book, my favourite from Vertigo for a long time. It’s nice that even though the last two issues have been mostly flashback stories to two of the main characters they continue to propel the main story forward. I think that’s important in this kind of book as there’s a lot of mystery behind it all but they aren’t spinning any wheels but giving a bit more revelation each time.

People complain about the state of comics which may be shaky as a whole, but we’re also getting a very solid Batman book and Superman book every two weeks which is what superhero comics are all about. Both were very good this week even if Superman was a touch slight.

The only other book I got was the Simpsons Christmas special which was fairly lackluster aside from two stories (one cowritten by Paul Dini).


Superman needed more pages. It was TIGHT, so I wouldn’t want it to “breathe” at all, but it could have stood 4-8 more pages. It felt like it ended on a cliffhanger that wasn’t quite a cliffhanger.


I read each page twice as I read it. Once following the word bubbles then once again just following the action.

Justice League #10 - This book is so good every issue. @bryanhitch continues to kill it and the artist rotation is amazing. This is really how you should be doing it. That cliffhanger though…

Superman #12 - Few things make me happier than picking up this book. I’m just so pleased to have such an enjoyable book on the stands that mixes such a heartwarming family relationship with great adventure. This issue fell heavier on the fun and adventurous side. I can’t wait for the next issue.

Motor Crush #1 - This was an interesting book. I’m not sure I understood exactly what was going on but I’m intrigued. I might pick up the next issue to see what’s up. It was nice to see our own @helloMuller on design duties.

CAUTION: Only watch if you’ve read Providence 11 .

I thought Motor Crush was a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to read the next issue.
It’s such a great setting, and I’m always up for a sci-fi racing premise.
The art had some great moments, and I’m a big fan of the colouring.
