Wonder Woman is off to a good start.  Flash 1 is hard to say.  It's hard to get past the art.  Detective is going to be a keeper for me to the foreseeable future.  The rest of the DC comics on my list are just me wrapping up what I was reading before.

Low 13 was good.  Feels like forever between issues for me though.

How is this story, really? I have tried to read this title (and by try I mean glanced through the first four pages or so  Cheesy) but the art is very distracting to me. Yes, me. The guy that usually loves that "odd art look". It is the only Remender comic I am not getting (I already have his next, "Seven to Eternity" on my list), but ... should it be? Should it be the only book I am not reading of his. Should I get this?

Yes you should get it.  I wasn't a fan at first but by issue, oh 3 maybe, I was full onboard and loving it.  Lots of unexpected twists.

Art or story? Did you have an issue with one more than the other?

EDIT and issue 14 is out also, right?

A bit of both.  If I remember right, I had just started Black Science and my first thought was that it was basically that under water.  But the art grew on me and is easier to follow than the art in BS.  And the journey under water has really grown into its own as well.  If you like BS (Black Science, of course, not Baloney Squat) then you should enjo Low.


EDIT and issue 14 is out also, right?

Yes it is.  Image drops their prices by $2 after 30 days so I always wait a month to pick those up.

Okay, I can get that. But ... you are saying that I should stay away from Baloney Squat?

That may be it.

Anytime Jimmy is not excited about what DC is doing (especially when it is good) and running out buying every last scrap of Rebirth ... yeah ... somethings up  Undecided What's up with this one and not the other? Hell actually, I haven't even heard you talking much about DC at all during this. I mean not as much as I figured you would be. You under a wife laid gag-order or something, Jimbo?

Finshed off all my ComiXology reading for this week.  Man,  this arc in Invinible is really blowing my mind!

I'm almost done with the vol 4 Unity trade. I wansn'r sure Faith would fit into this team but I like the dynamic.

Man, I am sooooo behind on Invincible it is sad. I have all the HC's but think I am still on Vol 5 (Which is like issue 52 or so)
 Undecided Grin Sad

I'm almost done with the vol 4 Unity trade.

Unity was so good, until that last few issues (Though issue 24 ... or 25, I forget which now, was pretty damn funny)

And are you buying your Image books from Comixology or Image? If I may ask  Grin

ComiXology just to keep everything together.  The prices were the same so it didn't matter to me.

I got ya. I just love having the ability to share. But I am in a position where I borrow a lot as well, soooo
 Cheesy

But yeah, it makes perfect sense if you are not lending/borrowing to keep them all together. I was just curious.  Cool

Seriously, that "all in one place" does have advantages, though. Sure is easier to know where ya gotta go  Smiley
