Week two of the fifth month in the "New Rejiggered 52" and it has come to my attention that the second week is my largest pull week every month now; with almost 20 titles and a trade or two. Although for me there are some great books out this week that I look forward to reading: Resurrection Man, Green Lantern, Suicide Squad, Batgirl and Severed to name a few. I'm also looking forward to reading Star Wars: Agent of the Empire and Amazing Spider-Man. Star Wars has been an interesting story and it is nice to have a non-DC / non-Marvel title on my pull list. As for Amazing Spider-Man this issue starts the two part crossover with Daredevil and Black Cat. I'm actually really interested in reading this to get a feel for Mark Waid's current Daredevil; which I have heard many say is Marvel's top book right now. Now I can give it a try with this little crossover. Overall, I am in for a lot of reading this week. Can't wait.

Remember you can now find these titles and more in digital format at our Comics Conspiracy - Comixology Storefront or you can still order comics from us directly by visiting the shop, giving us a call (408) 245-6275, or dropping Ryan an email at

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. I hope you appreciated ASM for giving you a good taste of what you've been missing in Daredevil.

    1. I haven't read it yet, but I am hoping it is a redeeming issue for ASM. I'm just bummed that paperback Daredevil Vol. 1 won't be out until much later this year so, I will have to wait to check out the Waid Daredevil stuff.

    2. Read ASM #677 and I enjoyed it. The art was okay and the story was interesting. This issue keeps ASM on my pull list and does give me a little preview of what to expect from Daredevil, but alas I must wait.

    3. You aren't even going to pick up the crossover from DD next week?

  2. How's Deathstroke #5? I've heard some really good things about this issue. Also, man Suicide Squad was definitely awesome this week.

    1. I haven't gotten a chance to read Deathstroke #5 yet. Long week of stuff to do and not enough time to do it. I am looking forward to Suicide Squad this week. I'll let you know.

    2. I wasn't completely impressed with Deathstroke #5, but it was cool at the end when Legacy throws that submarine at Deathstroke. I was hopeful for this series, but now that Rob Liefeld is going to be drawing and writing I am afraid Deathstroke will fall off my pull list.
      As for this week's Suicide Squad...Fucking Awesome!
