Calli was happy this week. Two titles came out that are on her pull list. I'll let you guess, but if you want to know what's on her "New Rejiggered 52" pull list click here.
I'm excited that I get to read Green Lantern, Suicide Squad and Resurrection Man this week. I don't know about you but after I make this pull list I take my comics out of alphabetical order and I put them in a reading order; which basically means I save my favorites for last. Maybe I should start doing that list up here too. Calli would kill me if I took more time to write this, but let me know by leaving a comment if you would like to know my reading order.
DC has been dominating the market for the past few months and it definitely shows on my pull list. Marvel hasn't been putting out something I want to spend money on. For example I flipped through Avenging Spider-Man #1 and was not impressed with the art from everyone's favorite non-finisher Joe Madureira. It was pretty bad and I think all the artists on the Spider Island story from Amazing Spider-Man are going to be brought in to do filler on this book real soon. In my opinion this Avenging Spider-Man title (or as Higgins calls it the Spider-Man Marvel Team-Up book) could have been put into the Amazing Spider-Man series as another story arc and it would have sold better than a brand new number one. I passed on it to say the least and I also passed on Uncanny X-Force, the really stupid Marvel Point One One-Shot that is just a huge solicitation book for coming soon titles with a cover price of $5.99 (we are selling it for $1.99 if you are interested), and Fear Itself #7.2 or whatever Thor number the book should be. Man all this hate on my pull list, oh it must be from the cancellation of the trades Suicide Squad (Vol. 2) - The Nightshade Odyssey and R.E.B.E.L.S. (Vol. 5) - Starstruck. Damn you DC! Why do you have to go and be really great and then do something dumb like this? 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.
