Last week of September and I'm actually Happy! that "The New 52" zero month is finally coming to a close. Overall I would have to say that I have enjoyed the zero issues, but they were a bit daunting when one would be an origin, another would continue a story, or one wouldn't even have anything to do with the title. Needless to say, but I'm ready to get back to normal issues and see where year two of "The New 52" takes us.
I actually have five books that are on the bottom of my pile that I'm looking forward to this week: American Vampire, Justice League Dark, Talon, Aquaman, and All Star Western. All of these books (except for Talon) have delivered great stories and I can't wait to see where we go in the coming months with them. Talon is a new book spinning out of the Court of Owls / Night of the Owls story arcs that dominated the Batman Universe titles a few months ago. Written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV with art by the amazing Guillem March I'm really looking forward to this exploration into the Owls that plague Gotham.
Happy! by Grant Morrison with art by Darick Robertson debuts this week and I'm hoping Morrison can impress me with some creator owned work, because his DC stuff is killing me with its herky-jerkyness. If Morrison pulls this off then I will be very Happy!.
Another one of those National Comics One-Shots comes out this week featuring Rose & Thorn. I'm not really familiar with Rose & Thorn, but I've been digging the National Comics One-Shots so I'm intrigues to see what comes of this lower tier character from the DC Universe. National Comics if anything gives readers a glimpse into a fringe character that, in my opinion, are sometimes more interesting than the big guns of DC lore.
If you didn't pick up Phantom Lady #1 last month you should track it down, and give this four issue mini-series a try. I was hooked after that first issue, and I would recommend it highly to anyone looking for something good to add to their pull list.
This week has a fair amount of titles and I can't get to talking about them all, but I will say this abut the titles on my reading list; Alpha from Amazing Spider-man is a shitty character and I don't like him, Ozymandias has actually impressed me Len Wein is doing a masterful job of giving us a view of the big bad from Watchmen, even though it is Jae Lee artwork. And as for the Winter Soldier I'm only going to stick it out for the rest of the Ed Brubaker run, and then it is off the reading list.
You know what time it is. Get down to your local comic book store or click over to our digital store and get you some comics.

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.
