I've been so busy working that I haven't been to a shop in weeks, so I bought the biggest stack of comics today that I might have ever copped in one purchase.
It will take me a while to work through these, but it's a pleasure.
Here are the standouts so far:
THE SECRET SERVICE #1 - Brilliant name and so far a great concept. English working class characters but man I totally relate to them.
ULTIMATES #8 - Still amazing. Art and writing are top notch.
ANIMAL MAN #8 - Book is still arguably the best of the new 52.
ULTIMATE SPIDER MAN #9 - Good set up issue.
DEFENDERS #5 - Finally this book is the anti-Avengers book in tone. Very loose, as much about the individuals and their inner journeys...not so much about big missions. Beautiful art.
BATMAN #8 - Best new Batman villain in a generation.
AMERICA'S GOT POWERS #1 - Good story, but the real star is Mr. Hitch on the art, which is epic. Loving this new book. Can't wait to see what happens next.
THE WALKING DEAD #96 - Soooo close to issue 100, you know something awful will happen. Especially with all this optimism and lurking danger colliding in this story.
IRON MAN #515 - Still loving this book.
CROSSED/BADLANDS #3 - Such a dark, ill book. I can't leave it alone.
