DC titles I passed on this week:

Demon Knights #1
Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #1
Mister Terrific #1*
Superboy #1

* We were shorted these titles. They will be at the shop Friday.

Week two of this "New Rejiggered 52" and again I seem to be picking up 9 out of the 13 books DC is releasing today. The only title I'm giving a chance this week is Deathstroke, because despite the fact that I have never been a fan of the Teen Titans or the Titans; I have liked the character Deathstroke. So we will see. Marvel got a few titles on the list this week which is a nice change of pace. Like Ryan and I both say about Marvel, "I want to like it. I really do, but Marvel keeps letting me down."
I am super stoked for Severed #2, but I have to wait because we were shorted our copies this week and they won't get to the the shop until Friday. Damn you Diamond!
On a side note I have gotten caught up with my single issue reading so I should be able to stay on top of my books from week to week. Remember you can now find these titles and more in digital format at our Comics Conspiracy - Comixology Storefront.

As usual I'll be talking comics on The Comic Conspiracy, and on the Geekbox Forums. Now get out there and enjoy some good old fashioned comic book reading.


  1. just got done with suicide Squad never read it before NEw 52 is me really trying at DC. I like the concept Mission Impossible but with villians.

  2. I thought the 3 issue Flashpoint Frankenstein was pretty good hopefully this first issues the same

  3. MaZZm,

    Suicide Squad is a great concept, and I recommend reading the earlier stuff with Suicide Squad (Vol. 1): Trial By Fire trade paperback.

    Franky Lara,

    I like the concept of the Frankenstein book, but the Flashpoint mini left a bad taste in my mouth when it came to a new ongoing. Which is sad because I have like the Creature Commandos stuff that has come out in the past few years.

  4. Just read Suicide Squad #1 as well. It was really good. Way better than Batwing

  5. I enjoyed Suicide Squad a lot and yes it was a better read than Batwing, but I still enjoyed Batwing more so than Hawk & Dove.
