I'm particularly happy with today's comic because of the last panel. Is Celesto being proven wrong about the royal battlecasters? Or is there is a sinister motive behind the battlecaster's fanboyish behavior? Never underestimate the dramatic value of a mysterious mask.
Of the new comic books I picked up yesterday, the new Animal Man series is the most promising. With otherworldly artwork and a planar vision-quest akin to some of the "out-of-panel" stuff I've been doing here, this book is really speaking to me. And with Buddy Baker's family well represented in this story so far, I think this one may be a standout title of the "new 52." Keep an eye on this one. I recommend it so far.
That's all from me for now.
