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!
