I'm using the rare geek time that I have mostly for catching up on comics. I just read two recent Marvel events in one Big Comics Reading Binge: Infinity
(totally AWEsome, I've become an instant Hickman fan. Suffering from Hickmania!!!) and Battle of the Atom
. The first is an Avengers event (covering multiple books and tie-ins), the second is an X-Men event. Battle of the Atom is also quite cool, with Brian Michael Bendis as one of the main writers, though I find myself more of an Avengers girl than an X-fan.
Also, I'm still continuing my quest through the Valiant universe. I'm now reading not only Archer & Armstrong - which I reviewed on my blog
and of course on Spirit Blade Underground Podcast ep. 300 (yea!) - but also:
Quantum & Woody (which is genuinely hilarious)
X-O Manowar (awesome)
Bloodshot (very very good!)
I'm about to start reading Eternal Warrior.
Last but not least: I'm hoping hoping hoping that the character Ninjak will get his own book. He played a part in a couple of X-O issues, and I'm willing to drop all other titles just to read his!
(Man, I am so
digging Valiant comics! I think I'm in love…)
I'm still reading some DC as well, but have dropped several titles. Found an unexpected new title to follow in Constantine
though, really liking that one. My vote is still out on the new Green Lantern team. I'm really
liking Robert Venditti on X-O Manowar (see above), which is why I'm giving him a chance on GL, but I'm not sure he "gets" the character of Hal Jordan. Although I have to say, when I heard his interview on Podcast of Oa (ep. 54) on writing Hal Jordan and his thoughts about the character, I'm willing to give it some more time and see how things develop. Especially since he read Geoff Johns's entire GL run to prepare for his own take on the book! Which earns him some definite creds.
I heard Venditti will take over the Flash book as well, so I guess he is Geoff Johns's crown prince...
As for some non-comics geek action, I'm watching the Arrow and Agents of SHIELD tv shows.
Okay, crossing out NON
-comics, I guess.
