Comics, comics everywhere. October 20, 2011 Posted by Mookie
I picked up quite a few comic books yesterday, and this week did not leave me with such a lamentable taste in my mouth. A lot of it had to do with the new ATOMIC ROBO hitting the shelves (and on time, too!) but other superhero offerings actually showed some promise.

Here, in brief, is what I thought:

ATOMIC ROBO & THE GHOST OF STATION X #2: Every issue of every series of this comic is amazing. Why aren't you reading it yet? You're missing out on all the robutt!
WONDER WOMAN #2: I had my doubts with this one, but between the heavy mythology storyline and Cliff Chiang's great artwork, this new Wonder Woman book is promising.
NIGHTWING #2: Decent offering of pretty standard superhero stuff. I like Dick Grayson, so I like to follow what he's up to.
BLUE BEETLE #2: If any hero didn't need a "reboot" it was Blue Beetle. Still, this new series hasn't changed much of what made the character so endearing. Blue Beetle is such a breath of fresh air into modern superheroes that I'll gladly read his story again.
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #2: Nice to read about Lanterns other than Hal Jordan. Especially the more alien ones. Go Isamot!
SUPERGIRL #2: Her new costume sucks, but I've been enjoying this so far.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and geek out!
