Lots o good stuff this week:
- Adventure Comics #525
- Batgirl #20
- Batman & Robin #22–I need to decide if I’m sticking around for the Red Hood three-parter coming right after this issue.
- Birds of Prey #11–Ahh, the Catman/Huntress story. Looking forward to this one.
- S.H.I.E.L.D.: Infinity–I just asked my LCS to add S.H.I.E.L.D. to my pull list, so I hope I get this issue as well.
- Superboy #6–My last issue. This series was meh.
- Superman #710–Yay! The long-awaited reunion of Superman and Bruce Wayne Batman*.
- Unwritten #24
* Is anyone else tired of the current convention of refering to the name of the character and their superhero name? We have 2 Batmen, 3 Flashes, 5 Green Lanterns, etc. I hate having to write Jay Garrick Flash or Alan Scott Green Lantern. Why can’t we just have one superhero with the same name? Though, leave Alan Scott alone. I love my Golden Age Green Lantern bunches. :D
I wish legacy heroes were just that, legacy. I understand the multiple Green Lanterns (there’s not exactly five of them, there are more like (2 x (amount of sectors)) of them), but there doesn’t need to be two Batmen or three Flashes.
In my dream comic world, there are heroes and villains that retire (or die) and pass the mantle on to someone else.
