I'm a bit under the weather this week so this post will be quick blurbs on each title I'm reading. I need to get some rest. Here we go though. Justice League Dark, All Star Western, Green Lantern Corps Annual, and Aquaman are the books that I'm waiting patiently to read this week. Each book has been amazing and I am really excited to read "Throne of Atlantis" and the conclusion of the "Rise of the Third Army".
Superman continues with another horrible "H'El on Earth" chapter, I just want it to be over already so that the Superman titles can maybe attempt to be solid titles again.
Unwritten has been on my pull list so long that I am picking it up because it is part of the motions now, but the book is still interesting so I don't mind that so much.
Injustice: Gods Among Us will prep me for the video game to come. That reminds me when does that come out? I checked, April 2013.
I actually was able to check out the first nine episodes of the Arrow TV show and I must say that it is a solid show and the digital first comic based in that world is a fun addition to watching the show.
Deathmatch promised death and it delivered. I enjoyed the first issue of this book, and I'm looking forward to issue two, because the threat is real and the characters could die.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe comes to a conclusion with this issue and despite the rockiness of the series I have overall enjoyed seeing this world I knew from my childhood (minus the moral to every story).
Star Wars: Agent of the Empire - Hard Targets continues and I may start to only read these mini series and just buy the trades of the stories I like. We will have to see.
Talon has been interesting and watching the battle with The Court of Owls continue makes this a nice after book to the "Court of Owls", cross-over.
Teen Titans is only on my pull list because it is the last part of "The Death of the Family" story involving Robin of the Teen Titans. I'm curious to see what Robin has to go through to see the silver platter?
Batman The Dark Knight has been a good read for some time so I don't have much else to say besides the art has been fantastic and I like that this title has given readers straight Batman stories separate from everything else that has been going on in the New 52 Batman universe.
Flash faces off with Grood and it should be an interesting issue.
Batman and Robin Annual has been talked about online already, and I have ignored all the talk. I just hope this Annual is better than the last two DC Annuals.
Red Lanterns sees the rise of a Manhunter army. This may be a good equalizer against the Guardians Third Army.
Mara #2 I picked up just to give it another attempt to catch my interest. Still don't know why I did though.
Masters of the Universe: Origin of He-Man looks to be interesting, but I'm still not a fan of the art.
Superior Spider-Man #2 has one last shot to interest me if not I'm done and I will find out about Peter Parker's ghost gaining control from others who are sticking with the title.
Before Watchmen: Ozymandias and Dollar Bill look to be interesting, but I thought this whole Before Watchmen thing was going to be over and done with already.
Fury of Firestorm has definitely been a better title with the new creative team and I will keep reading this book unless it starts to suck like the first few story arcs.

I think you should get down to your local shop or over to or Comics Conspiracy's Digital Store to get your books. See you next week.

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.
