Friday Comics Chat Open Thread - The REAL Optimus Prime Edition

Well, here you go, guys and gals... the Friday Comics Chat Open Thread! What cool comic books did you read this week? Likes? Dislikes? What did you spot in PREVIEWS? Besides Superman stuff? How 'bout that "52", huh? Talk to me.

I think the 52 series has the potential to be brilliant or a disaster, although with DC's recent track history I think it's gonna rock. I don't know about you guys but I'm psyched for 1 year later. As for this weeks reading Iron Man- The
Inevitable was terrific as usual (great mini) I enjoyed MouseGuard and THE INTIMDATORS has been a lot of fun so far. (Bill, thanx for recommending "living in infamy" i love that book)

Hey, Planet Hulk was good as was Wolverine he battles The Winter soldier you know Bucky. And The Thing was good, Spider Man's new threads, I don't know what to think. How long do you all think he will wear it?

Didn't get to read too much yet. Still enjoying "Batman: Journey into Knight" but I've bored you all with my reasons why Andrew Helfer is a great writer before. I also dug Batman #650 even if it was just marking time till the Annual next month.

You know, Greg Rucka is one of my very favorite writers, not just in comics but also general fiction; however, his last few issues of Wonder Woman have been pretty worthless. They should have cancelled the book 3 or 4 months ago.

There were a bunch of other really good books out this week - just didn't get to them yet. Oh, I bought "Batman : Year 100" from last week and totally dug it! I passed on it at first because I'm not a big Paul Pope fan, but I read so many good things about it that I had to drive it a shot. I'm very glad that I did.

shadow - Yes, everyone should go buy MOUSE GUARD! Beautiful children's-book-sort of style artwork with a great story! And Ned's the one who got me to read LIVING IN INFAMY... another great one.

craig box13 - Spidey has STINGERS! Or something. I didn't get to read it because we sold out so fast... *Sigh* 50 more second printings are on the way, if anybody else needs one... I'm sure it's have a different cover, for all you Spidey completists.

linnen - I totally agree on BATMAN: YEAR 100... I've been intrigued/comfused/bored by Pope's previous stuff, but this was pretty durn cool all around.

And I also agree with shadow on 52 (WEEKS)... I think it's gonna be great, only because DC's proven they can do it right. I also eagerly await ONE YEAR LATER stuff... can't wait to see what's what.


Ahem. Sorry.

This weeks Green Lantern was GREAT, Tattooed Man was neat and Bats returns the "sucker" punch and also puts on the power ring. I just started reading GL with Rebirth but I gatta say This was His Best issue yet. IMO

Also anyone get the Ultimate Avengers DVD? man I loved it they gonna do an Iron Man and a Dr. Strange one next. It also previews Ultimate Avengers 2 and that will be the Ultimate Black Panther's first apperance. Good Stuff!
