Another slow Comic Book Day October 12, 2006 Posted by Mookie
Not much came out for me this week as far as new comic books are concerned, but I'll give you folks the run-down of what I got my geeky little mitts on.

I decided to take a gamble on Tales of the Unexpected #1 this week. It features The Spectre and Doctor Thirteen. The former is very dark, gritty and gruesome, while the latter is a supernatural skeptic. Both stories were great to read and this looks like it could be a really spooky mini-series.

Martian Manhunter #3 shows the emotional side of J'onn J'onzz, both positively and negatively. It's a clash of moral, racial and planetary ethics in this issue. Not to mention napalm-throwing death planes. All in all I continue to enjoy this mini-series. I always knew Martian Manhunter was a cool, classic superhero, but I never knew I'd be a little freaked out by him once he finally lost his cool.

And finally, it's Week 23 of the always-enjoyable 52. The Island of Doctor Morrow was really, really amusing. I never knew one's intellect was directly proportional to one's tan. Things with Black Adam and Isis are certainly heating up, too. Sometimes I question whether or not I like The Question as comic relief (tee hee), but he makes me laugh and I always enjoy a good chuckle.

For those of you who want to know the real-life story behind today's strip and our eye-plucking criminal, just come and ask me about it at ONI-CON in a couple of weeks. You'll find out why I like that name so much.

That's all from me for now!
