Title: Current DC Comixology Wish List - Charting!
Post by: Jeff on December 14, 2016, 01:29:52 PM
Here is all the comics I have currently in my Comixology Wish List.  This means I haven't bought them yet but I want to.  The good thing about being me is that I'm so far behind on my reading by the time I get to buying things the prices have dropped.  However, DC is no longer dropping the prices so it doesn't matter when I buy them.

If you were me, how would you rank them?  Are there some I shouldn't bother buying?  

(NOTE:  Some of the issues listed haven't come out yet.  They are in my wish list for when they are released)

Action Comics 957, 958, 959, 960, 961, 962, 963, 964, 965, 966, 967, 968, 969, 970, 971, 972

Batgirl & the Birds of Prey 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

DC Rebirth Holiday Special 1
Death of Hawkman 1, 2, 3, 4

OH BOY ... LISTS !!!!!!
 :)

Okay, for me ... as of today (and this may change as I read this weeks offerings or at anytime in the future, mind you.  ;D) Here is how I have them now.

Starting with the ones I have not read (or read just an issue and therefore have no opinion):
Batgirl & the Birds of Prey - Only read one issue. Didn't grab me but hear it's okay. Middle of the road.
Earth 2: Society [+ Annual] - Pulled away when Robinson left soooo, no idea
Teen Titans: Earth One HC Vol 2 - Nope, not yet  ;)
Raven - You know more on this than I  ;D
Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special  - Just no time to read this. Hear it is good though.

Dark Knight: A True Batman Story - Hard to rate this as a "comic" as it is more a documentary. It's okay, but kinda "by the book" story telling. But very personal and so that is good.

Books I don't like and would personally avoid, though I am sure have some worth and would be a grab when on sale perhaps? :
Suicide Squad [+ War Crimes] - Just didn't hit for me. Will be back for the JLA war though.
Death of Hawkman - Just Rann/Thanagar War all over again
Doom Patrol - If you liked Morrison's Doom Patrol this is for you. As someone that have not yet read Morrisons Doom Patrol, it is a cluttered mess. I tried three times to get into this as all the Morrison head Doom Patrol fans were praising it. Ugh, up to you, but a hearty no F'n way for me.

As for the rest ... and trying to remember where I am with what story ...


For my favorites and those behind :

Detective Comics
Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps
Superman
Deathstroke
$5 Batman - Crazy as hell, but man, pretty damn fun too. It's a "Don't think, just enjoy" book!!!
Trinity
Wonder Woman - here only because I am enjoying one week more than the other.
New Superman
Action Comics
Superwoman

These I just keep going back and forth on. Really good, then an "meh' issue. Bottom of the list, just can't poick an order.
The Flash
Midnighter & Apollo
Red Hood & the Outlaws
Titans

Superman Annual 1 - This was okay, but I prefer the Batman Annual.

OOps, dinner time ... BRB
 :D

---------------------------------------- The "you should really read these" line
Detective Comics
Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps
Superman
Deathstroke
$5 Batman
Trinity
Wonder Woman
New Superman
Action Comics
Superwoman
---------------------------------------- The "maybe you would enjoy these below this line" line
Teen Titans: Earth One HC Vol 2
Superman Annual 1
Dark Knight: A True Batman Story
Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special
The Flash
Midnighter & Apollo
Red Hood & the Outlaws
Titans
Earth 2: Society
 ---------------------------------------- The "you should maybe find something else" line
Suicide Squad
Batgirl & the Birds of Prey
Death of Hawkman
Doom Patrol

 :D

---------------------------------------- The "you should really read these" line
Detective Comics
Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps
Deathstroke
Wonder Woman
Superwoman

These are probably my top 5 as I really do try to keep up with them each month.  Good to see you rank them as must reads as well.

Doom Patrol - If you liked Morrison's Doom Patrol this is for you. As someone that have not yet read Morrisons Doom Patrol, it is a cluttered mess. I tried three times to get into this as all the Morrison head Doom Patrol fans were praising it. Ugh, up to you, but a hearty no F'n way for me.


Hmm now this really has me torn.  I loved Morrison's original Doom Patrol run - it was soooo out there and fun.  For that I would think I would love this.  But since you hated it.........


---------------------------------------- The "you should really read these" line
Superman
$5 Batman
Trinity
New Superman
Action Comics

So as I get caught up and start adding titles I may start with these.

Superman - already reading but got behind and not staying current at the moment.  I like this but the Eradicator story I didn't like.  That's probably what kept me from staying current.
$5 Batman - read first issue and want to stay current - but man, $5   ;D
Trinity - read the first issue and loved the cliff hanger.  Definitely plan on picking up.
New Superman - read the first issue and caught my interest.  Plus you guys seem to love this so chances are I will too.
Action Comics - now here is a big dilemma.  I have no problem giving this a try but if I love it....there's a LOT of issues to get caught up on!

---------------------------------------- The "you should maybe find something else" line
Suicide Squad
Batgirl & the Birds of Prey
Death of Hawkman
Doom Patrol

Suicide Squad - yeah, I was just ok with the first issue.  It wouldn't bother me to drop this.  In fact, just decided.  It's gone.
Batgirl & the Birds of Prey - I had removed this but then I got the Rebirth issue for 99 cents and I liked it.  I'll probably pick up a few issues anyway to see if I still like it.
Death of Hawkman - My first thought is - How can I not pick up something labeled "Death of Hawkman"?  But I don't need a retread of the Rann/Thangarr war.  I'll have to think on this one.
Doom Patrol - already talked about in above thread.  I bet I wind up trying it.

And you should really, if you liked Morrison's stuff there is a great chance you will like ths. It isn't bad (other than one thing I have a problem with ... that I will discuss once/if you read the first issue  ;) ... not a big deal at all), but as I never read Morrison's run and this is along that same  "I just ate a handful of mushrooms and peyote, I think I shall write a book" line  :D, I am lost as hell and just not getting the "coolness" that everyone else sees.

The same thing with Cave Carson also (though that was not as well written to me)

And yes, I had the same feeling with Trinity. Just rolling along thinking - "Well, it is a nice book, but I don't think I will ... OH SHIT!!"
 :D

New-Superman is just a different beast. I keep saying it is like the funny Justice League title(s) back in the day as it has that style of humor, once you get past the first issues "man this guy is a jack-ass" feeling.
 :)

Death of Hawkman may have turned around or away from the feeling I had about it being like Rann/Than war. Jimmy could probably answer better as I don't see him passing a Hawkman mini unless it is kinda meh.
 ;D

Only reason I am not reading Birds is I didn't want to read Batgirl as well and feared for many a crossover. I thought the first issue was fine enough though. I don't blame ya for giving it a go. Let me know in fact. I may catch up if you say it is good.
 8)

And lastly, yeah $5 is a lot, but I think it is 40 pages also, I think (check before you buy) so the story is kinda worth it for that. And J.R.jr. has toned down his "blockyness" style so that helps (even though his Two-Face design leaves a lot to be desired. Yukj)

 :-\
The thing with Action Comics is it is like Supe's Detective Comics. Not as good, lord no, but it is more of a mystery type of title and, so far, more Luther and Daily Planet type stuff. Plus Superwoman in brief appearances. However, I have seen nothing here you can't miss (even though I am really digging it). I say just wait for one of their large 99 cent sales and grab the entire run. It's good, it's fun, but it isn't a must have.
