The Weekend Comics Chat Open Thread - the Puppies On Monorails Edition!

What can I say? You've been here before. You know what to do. Tell us what you read this week. What did you like? What did you dislike? Tell us, please!

I read ABSOLUTELY NOTHING because I'm still on vacation in sunny Florida! OK, I did read the menu at the Islamorada Fish Company, here in the Florida Keys.

You eat right on the water, and the menu is supplied fresh right there on the docks... I had smoked fish dip and Conch fritters as an appetizer, then a big basket of breaded shrimp! Karen feasted on a nice hunk of Mahi-Mahi, and the kids had chicken fingers (what, no alligator this time, Max?)

*sigh* Maybe we should open a Comix Connection down here...

And I am seriously jonesing for some COMIC BOOKS here.

Escapist was the only book that really had me smiling this week...this was a new low for pickups for me...i find myself actually skipping pages in 52 right now, but i will hang in there because its just developing and i'll be patient...the opening story in Frontline was pretty good..Ms. marvel #6 was ok and it was the only issue i've read since it began and its easy to jump onto...conan songs of the dead is yet to be read, the first issue was fun so i hope this book makes up for the slack of others...

I kind of feel differently about 52 than I used to...I was thinking about dropping it when issue #7 came out, but the recent issues have been okay, (nothing to write home about) but okay. I think the book would improve if it focused completely Renee and that guy. That's why I think issue 11 was the best.
Anyway: I know nobody here is an Ultimate line fanatic as much as I am, but Ult. X-Men and the Ult. Spidey annual were incredible.

Kinda small week for boomers on my end... I agree with you guys about 52 kinda being slow. I loved the issue with Batwoman, and the Isis one was cool too. Anyone read Martian Manhunter? a bit different, seems cool. Ive a few on this weeks pile yet to read though... the Pacheco Superman and such.

Superman was very good this week. I love Brian K Vaughan's take on the "The Escapist". Ultimate X-men was enjoyable(not quite on par with Kirkman's stuff on The Walking Dead, but good nonetheless). Squadron Supreme has been killer, a fantastic "team" dysfunctional book. I am SOOO excited to see DESOLATION JONES issue 7 solicted finally kicking off arc #2 of the best damn dead anti hero book, period. If you haven't read this book do yourself a favor and buy the trade....that's all for now...see ya in snowtown

Martian Manhunter was a bit odd, but I enjoyed it. I thought it was a little hard to understand, but I was very tired when I read it...I'll have to re-read. Squadron Supreme was great, I agree. For the first time I think I can actually say I enjoyed fill-in art.

Is anyone else reading Inredible Hulk? The latest issues have been really great.
