This Weeks Haul: August 30, 2006

I don't know if I should date these by the day I got the comics or the day I'm writing it? Screw it, I'm going with "day I got".

Have I metioned I'm getting this and how much I'm diggin' it? No Superman in this issue, but a very nice look at "bumbling" Clark Kent as he protects Luthor during a Parasite incited prison Riot while Lex delivers his anti-Superman polemic to the reporter. Ironically, Lex kind of likes Kent. The last two or three years have seen a resurgence of great Lex Luthor stories, and this is among the best.

Everything that I predicted last time pretty much comes to pass. Poor Awesome Andy. As for Jennifer, she realises she dosen't love her werewolf husband, just as he's passed out, attaining godhood. That happens a lot in the Marvel Universe. I never did care much for the Stargod concept, but we'll see where it goes.

52 WEEK #17
I have been reading this all along, but I haven't had much to say about it so far. I really like some of the storylines, but I'm finding a couple of others a bit draggy. Lobo returns, and after eviscerating a giant and ripping Starfire's top off, reveals that he's found religion and needs help. The origin backup is Lobo as well, and it's in probably my favorite of Keith Giffen's many, many art styles:

I'd like to see Giffen do some more interior art.

That's all for now.
