Superman's been really, really bad, and I'm very close to dropping it completely. Hate New Krypton. Hate it.

On a positive note, lots of Obama comics this week. Youngblood was the typical Liefeld quality. He photocopied the same Obama face three times on the same page! Savage Dragon's Obama appearance was a lot better.

Walking Dead is great, so's Invincible. I keep wanting to try Astonishing Wolfman.

Green Lantern: I read GL now, always and forever, through good times and bad, but Geoff Johns and the set up for Blackest Night are really, really good.

Walking Dead: Awesome book. Probably the think I most look forward to each month.

Girl Genius: Only available online, with the occasional "dead tree" compendium being published by Airship Entertainment (vol. 8 is solicited in the current PREVIEWS, plug, plug) but Phil and Kaja Foglio's steampunk fantasy is the most fun on the web. It's the first site I go to every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for the new page.

HaHaHa...I like how Mego always can really voice his opinion and never thinks pass that. Even if it cost the store a couple of Supes issues just sittin' on the shelf not sellin' because of his great reviews...but hey, what are friends for?

Strasmin - Hey, it's cool, I ask for honest opinions on comics you're all reading, good or bad. Seriously. The ONLY THING I will ever delete from the comments sections are offensive posts, not honest opinion.

What have you read lately?

So I don't buy these regularly but read all the collected editions in paperback...
FABLES by Vertigo, I love it - do more hardcore comic readers love them also?

I wish I knew of good Sci-Fi comics. Something along the lines of writers Philip K Dick, Robert Heinlein and William Gibson?

I love how I voice my opinion, too!

I'm sure that my talking down the latest run of Superman is going to cause the all of those people that hang on my every pronouncement to stop buying it. Since Superman's monthly comic probably makes up about 0.001% of Comix Connection's sales, I really should be more careful!

I started reading Astonishing Wolf-man since I really like the other Kirkman books. It's pretty good so far.

Aw man, I am soooo behind...being in France, and too far away from my box to see what's new in there...but on the upside, finding lots of cool French comics! So, Bill, you wanted to read the new volume of Blacksad, right? Well, how good's your French? ;)

Oh, and Bill, totally got my roommate here addicted to Walking Dead because I gave her volume one for Mithrastide...and now she hates me, because she's in France, and can't get more! :D

(But seriously, lots of pretty French comics I'll have to show you guys...I just can't actually read any of 'em!)

Awe Nicky... if only your French comics had that wonderful feature of foreign cinema, the subtitle!

I enjoyed Green Lantern and Justice Society this week, and the second Starman Omnibus is a joy to read through! I miss that book so much! I'm also reading "I Saw You" an anthology of comic short stories based on real life missed connection ads. It's hilarious and heartbreaking all at the same time.

Ah but Joe, the REAL question is, are you drawing?

(Remember, May!)
